100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Refreshing Foaming Facial Wash For Normal Skin

Hi there! Today’s post is about the face wash I’m using at the moment – Superdrug‘s Refreshing Foaming Facial Wash for normal skin.

This product with lemon and grape extract promises to remove make-up and impurities gently and effectively, and to refresh and revitalise skin.

I’ve been using this face wash for a few weeks now, and here’s what I think.

I think this face wash is very effective. It cleanses my skin deeply. However, I don’t agree that this product is gentle. It feels very drying. Based on this, I think this face wash is more suitable for people with very oily skin.

Another thing I’m not happy with is the strong fragrance. I love nice fragrances and scented products, but this face wash is just too much! I would describe the fragrance as one of those cheap smelling chemo-cosmetic fragrances. I’m not a fan, and I don’t understand how Superdrug got this fragrance so very wrong…

Based on my experience, I would not recommend this face wash. However, if you have very oily skin, you might want to give this a try.

Superdrug‘s Refreshing Foaming Facial Wash for normal skin is not only suitable for vegans, but also certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo). However, this product is being discontinued (which isn’t surprising), so this is one you will only find in your local Superdrug’s bargain bin.

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Cherry & Macadamia Body Scrub

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing Superdrug‘s Cherry & Macadamia Body Scrub. Superdrug’s own brand body butters and body scrubs seem to be disappearing from the stores. So I thought I should finally give this body scrub (which has been sitting in my stash for ages) a try. Read on if you’d like to know if this product is any good.

I think Superdrug did an amazing job with this body scrub. It’s very effective, it has the perfect consistency, it makes my skin feel insanely soft without being too harsh – and it smells like cherry ice cream! This is an amazing product, and it’s sad that Superdrug has discontinued the entire line. I bought two of these body scrubs, and I’m glad I did!

Superdrug’s Cherry & Macadamia Body Scrub is suitable for vegans. The product is also certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo). This scrub is available as 200ml. It’s £4.99 but I picked it up for half price. 🙂

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)!
