100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Micro Polish

Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Micro PolishHi there! A few weeks ago I fell in love with Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Brightening Renewal Face Mask. So I wanted to try a few more products from Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant range.

Superdrug also ran a half price promotion. Needless to say, I bought several products. 🙂 But now let’s focus on Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Brightening Micro Polish.

This product promises to exfoliate skin, to refine skin texture and to clarify skin discolouration with the help of kiwi and mulberry extracts, blueberry seeds and fruit acids.

As per the instructions on the back of the tube, this micro polish should be… (I’m almost quoting) massaged over wet or dry skin in a circular motion. Then you’re supposed to add a splash of water and work the product into a lather. And then the product should be rinsed off.

Oh, and this micro polish scrub is meant to be used once or twice weekly.

When I used this product for the first time, I noticed that it wasn’t as gritty as I thought it would be. That’s because this micro polish doesn’t contain any harsh and abrasive ingredients like ground walnut shells or crushed apricot seeds. So whilst this micro polish doesn’t give my face the St. Ives treatment, I can definitely feel its cleansing and exfoliating powers. And I don’t have to worry about microscopic cuts on my skin surface. 🙂

By the way, other scrubs that don’t contain walnut shell powder or crushed apricot seeds are Superdrug’s Simply Pure Smoothing Face Scrub and Olay’s Essentials Smoothing Face Scrub (which, I think, is being discontinued – it’s now available for £1 at Poundworld and Bargain Buys).

Now back to Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Brightening Micro Polish. 🙂 I think it’s a fab product and I’d recommend it in an instant. I’ll continue to use it weekly and I’ll definitely buy it again! The 75ml tube is usually £4.99. But I paid £2.45 only for my micro polish. So I suggest you keep your eyes peeled for half price or BOGOF offers to get the best deal! 🙂

By the way, since I’ve been so impressed with the face mask (I use it every Saturday) and the micro polish (I use it every Tuesday), I bought a few more Naturally Radiant products which I’ll review within the next couple of weeks.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed the post. 🙂

Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Simply Pure Smoothing Face Scrub

Superdrug Simply Pure Face Scrub 2Hi there! Superdrug has a relatively new product line. It’s called Simply Pure and it’s aimed at people with sensitive skin. Superdrug ran a half price promotion recently, so I thought I’d give some of these new products a try.

I’ve now used Superdrug’s Simply Pure Smoothing Face Scrub for a few times and I’m really happy with it.

First of all, this scrub doesn’t contain crushed apricot seeds or walnut shells which have become unpopular because they’re very harsh and they can cause tiny cuts on the skin’s surface.

So this scrub would be great for those who look for a non-abrasive and gentle facial scrub that won’t harm their skin.

The Simply Pure scrub won’t give your face the ‘St. Ives treatment’, but I think it’s definitely effective. And it’s very gentle and doesn’t aggravate my sensitive skin. So I could probably use it every day if I wanted to.

I would definitely recommend Superdrug’s Simply Pure Smoothing Face Scrub – not only to people with sensitive skin, but to everyone. If you have sensitive skin, you’ll probably be glad to hear this scrub is fragrance-free and hypoallergenic. In addition, it also doesn’t contain methylisothiazolinone, so that’s another potential irritant you don’t need to worry about.

Superdrug’s Simply Pure Smoothing Face Scrub is available as 75ml for £2.69. Mine was £1.29, so I’d recommend you keep your eyes peeled for better than half price promotions. 🙂

St. Ives Naturally Clear Apricot Scrub – Blemish Fighting

St Ives ScrubHi there! After years and years of using rather gentle face scrubs only, I have bought my first ever St. Ives face scrub. 🙂

Say ‘Hello’ to St. Ives Naturally Clear Apricot Scrub (Blemish Fighting).

I haven’t used apricot scrubs since my early twenties, but when I spotted this scrub for half price at one of the two big drugstores, I thought, why not give St. Ives a try?

In terms of exfoliating, this scrub is quite powerful. After the first use I felt that my skin was much softer. The scrub got rid of quite a few dead skin cells and dry patches. I’ll continue to use it every five to seven days.

I can see that this St. Ives Scrub would work very well for people with oily skin and / or skin impurities too.

If you’re looking for a powerful and reasonably priced facial exfoliator, you might want to try one of St. Ives’ offerings. St. Ives Naturally Clear Apricot Scrub (Blemish Fighting) is available as 150 ml for around £4, although right now it’s on special offer for £2.50 at Asda.
