100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Choc Orange Sauna

Hi there! Today’s post is about a face mask I picked up recently – Montagne Jeunesse Choc Orange Sauna.

This is a self-heating mask that promises to open pores to give skin a deep cleanse. Montagne Jeunesse recommends you leave it on for 10-15 minutes before washing it off.

I’ve now tried this mask, and I’m disappointed. I bought this mask recently, but most of the product had turned into a solid mass inside the sealed sachet.

I was able to use some of the product, however, the self-heating effect was non-existent, and the mask didn’t really do anything for my skin at all.

The sweet chocolate-orange fragrance was still spot on. But it didn’t matter.

All in all, I’m disappointed. I think it’s possible this is old stock. However, I would expect the manufacturer to be aware of the rather limited shelf life of their products, and I would also expect them to print a use by date on such products.

Montagne Jeunesse Choc Orange Sauna is available as 15g. I paid 90p. This mask is approved by the Vegetarian Society, and it’s certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo).

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Flutter Hand Cream

Hi there! Today’s short post is about Superdrug‘s Flutter Hand Cream. It’s been a while since I bought this hand cream, but the Flutter brand always makes an appearance around Christmas and Valentine’s Day, and this year’s Christmas collection looks pretty much like last year’s! 😉 Now… onto the review!

I think this is a lovely hand cream. Whilst it’s more of a summer hand cream than a winter hand cream, I do enjoy the light formula because it’s absorbed almost instantly. This hand cream makes my hands feel super soft, and the subtle floral fragrance is very nice! I’d describe the fragrance as yellow and happy. 🙂

Superdrug‘s Flutter Hand Cream is available as 60ml for £1. In addition, this hand cream is suitable for vegans, and it’s certifed cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo). I think Superdrug’s Flutter hand cream would make a great stocking filler!

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Cucumber & Lime Crush

Hi there! Today’s post is about Montagne Jeunesse‘s Cucumber & Lime Crush Peel Off Face Mask.

This face mask promises to lift off dead skin cells and impurities, and to revive skin.

It works like any other peel-off mask: Apply it to your face, let it dry for about 15 minutes, and simply peel it off (then wash your face).

How’s the mask? I think this is an average face mask. Montagne Jeunesse has done a number of much better peel-off masks, so I don’t know why they keep pushing this one (this is a repackaged version of their cucumber peel-off mask).

In addition, this mask smells strongly of alcohol. It’s best to hold your breath when you apply this mask to your nose!

Based on my experience, I wouldn’t recommend this face mask. Like I said, there are quite a few great Montagne Jeunesse peel-off masks, but this isn’t one of them.

Montagne Jeunesse Cucumber & Lime Crush is available as 10ml for 90p at Primark. This face mask is certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo).

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Purple Acai Peel Off

Hi there! Today’s post is about Montagne Jeunesse‘s Purple Acai Peel Off face mask.

This peel-off face mask is like any other peel-off mask. Apply it, let it dry for about 15 minutes, then peel it off, and wash off any residue with warm water.

So how’s the mask? I think it’s one of Montagne Jeunesse’s best peel-off masks. I found it very effective, and I think it even brightened my skin. The lovely fragrance is an added bonus!

Montagne Jeunesse‘s Purple Acai Peel Off face mask is exclusive to Primark where you can pick it up for 90p. In addition, this face mask carries the Leaping Bunny logo which means it’s certified cruelty-free!

Superdrug Treat Me Salted Caramel Shower & Bath Soak

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug Treat Me Salted Caramel Shower & Bath Soak.

I’ve been using this shower gel for a few days now, and I’m happy to say that I like it.

Whilst NSPA’s Caramel Fudge shower gel has set the standards for yummy caramel-scented toiletries, Superdrug’s version smells really nice too. It smells just like salted caramel!

I also like how the shower gel feels on my skin. I’m satisfied that it cleanses my skin properly, but it doesn’t feel drying at all.

Superdrug Treat Me Salted Caramel Shower & Bath Soak is available as 500ml for £2.99. I paid £1.49 (half price offer). This products is suitable for vegans, and it’s certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo)!

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Naturally Radiant Glycolic Tonic

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Naturally Radiant Glycolic Tonic with 5% glycolic acid.

In addition to glycolic acid, this product also contains kiwi, lemon and mulberry fruit extracts, lotus flower extract and witch hazel.

This toner claims to… help revive skin’s radiance, even out skin tone, refine pores, retexturise the skin surface, and make fine lines and wrinkles appear smoother. The promised result is a brighter, healthier and more youthful complexion.

Use this product like any other toner. Superdrug recommends it be used twice a day (mornings and evenings). I’ve been using this toner once a day (evenings) on most days since some time in July, and I think it worked wonders for me.

I don’t think this toner refined my pores at all, but it did everything else it promised. This summer, I’ve had new dark skin patches (I learned that this is called melasma) develop on my forehead, above my upper lip, on the bridge of my nose, and on my cheekbones. Thanks to this toner, these dark patches have almost disappeared. I can still see them if I take a very close and prolonged look, but this toner has been amazing at brightening and evening out my skin tone.

I have been really impressed with this toner. I already bought 4 back-up bottles! I would also recommend this toner to everyone! If you don’t at least give this toner a try, it’s your own fault!

Superdrug‘s Naturally Radiant Glycolic Tonic with 5% glycolic acid is available as 100ml for £5.99. I paid £2.99 (half price promotion). This product is suitable for vegans, and it’s certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo).

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Shower Moisturiser

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Vitamin E Skin Care Shower Moisturiser. This product promises soft and smooth skin as well as all-day hydration. It contains shea butter, horse chestnut extract, and vitamins A, E, B5, F and H.

How does it work? This is an in-shower moisturiser. Apply it to your wet skin whilst you’re still in the shower – pretty much right after you’ve rinsed off your shower gel. Once you’ve massaged the moisturiser into your skin, it’s already time to rinse it off as well. Then pat your skin dry with a towel. Done!

I’ve used this product on and off for quite some time now, and I must say that I love it! This is the perfect moisturiser for when I’m in a hurry because it takes just 1 minute to moisturise and rinse. And the result is beautifully hydrated skin. The lovely fragrance (which is the same as the All Over Body Cream) is an added bonus!

Superdrug‘s Vitamin E Skin Care Shower Moisturiser carries the Leaping Bunny logo. It’s vegan and certified cruelty-free!. The product is available as 250ml for £2.99. Superdrug runs Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price Promotions on their Vitamin E Skin Care line almost all the time. 😉
