Hi there! I’ve now tried and used all of Superdrug’s Clearly Youthful products. So today I’m reviewing the only product I haven’t told you about before, Superdrug’s Clearly Youthful SPF 15 Skin Balancing Moisturiser.
This product promises mattified, softer and smoother skin, tighter pores and a clearer complexion. In addition, the product claims to reduce the visibility of fine lines. Does it work? Read on, I’ll let you know. 🙂
This cream has a mattifying effect, no doubt. And it even seems to calm angry spots. However, it’s not possible to apply this cream without causing it to ball up. I mean it. It’s impossible. It balls up. Every time. I even tried to pat it on. But that didn’t work either. And don’t get me started on what happens when I try to apply another product on top of this one…
To make a long story short – this cream is useless if you want to use it as a cream. But I’ve found that it works when it’s applied to spots (or spot-prone areas) directly. Since I can’t use this product under my foundation, I can only use it at night time. So I use this cream as a targeted blemish treatment, and I (have to) leave it alone until the next morning.
I will finish this cream, no doubt. But I think that my zinc cream (which is actually a super cheap diaper rash cream) does a better job taking care of spots. In summay, the only thing that’s great about this face cream is that it wasn’t tested on animals. It’s BUAV-approved (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo) and it’s suitable for vegans.
Superdrug has discontinued the entire Clearly Youthful line. A store assistant told me the line would be redone. I just hope they’ll leave the glycolic face mask, the day serum, the night serum and the triple action cleanser the way they were. Fingers crossed!
