100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Red Colour Conditioner

uploadHi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug’s Red Colour Conditioner which I picked up for 99p.

This colour conditioner is meant to be used weekly, and it promises to protect and maintain red hair colour.

The product claims to lock in colour and to make hair extra smooth and shiny.

Well, that sounds great! But does it work? My guess is that it doesn’t, but I don’t really know. Here’s why:

The problem with this conditioner is that it’s not conditioning at all.

Every time I apply this product, it makes my hair feel in need of actual conditioner. So I have to use regular conditioner after this cololur conditioner…

To make a long story short, I think this product is rubbish!

I’ve already emptied this tube. Fortunately it was a small 50ml tube only and it barely lasted for 3 ‘attempts’. Good riddance!

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Grapefruit Sauna

upload-5Hi there! Montagne Jeunesse’s Grapefruit Sauna (Primark, 90p) is the star of today’s post. 🙂

This face mask promises to gently warm skin for a fresh and radiant glow. This sounds great! But is the mask really any good?

Yes, the mask is awesome! The warming effect is very pleasant. And it’s only warm, it’s not hot, I promise!

I also enjoyed the fragrance which is probably the purest and most authentic pink grapefruit fragrance I’ve ever smelled. It’s gorgeous!

And what about the skin benefits? I didn’t see a difference, but I felt a difference. My skin felt super clean and clear. Fantastic!

So would I recommend this face mask? Yes, absolutely!

This Montagne Jeunesse Grapefruit Sauna face mask is certified cruelty-free, and it’s suitable for vegetarians. It’s approved by BUAV (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo) and by the Vegetarian Society.

100% Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Yoghurt Smoothie Mask

Superdrug Yoghurt Smoothie MaskHi there! Just a few days ago I picked up a new face mask at my local Superdrug. I found it on the sale shelf (49p) – so I guess it’s been discontinued…

Anyway, since you might still come across it, let me tell you if Superdrug’s Yoghurt Smoothie Mask is any good.

First of all, this mask reminds me of Montagne Jeunesse’s Buttercream Dream Mud. Whilst this Superdrug face mask doesn’t contain any exfoliating beads, the formula and the fragrance are quite similar to Montagne Jeunesse’s face mask.

What I like about this mask is that it gives my skin a deep cleanse and that it makes my skin feel soft and refreshed.

I think this mask is really nice! If I manage to swing by Superdrug again next week, I’ll definitely pick up a few more masks! 🙂

Superdrug’s Yoghurt Smoothie Mask carries the Leaping Bunny logo. It’s BUAV-approved and as such it is 100% cuelty-free!

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Extracts Grapefruit & Papaya Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Whilst I love reasonably priced hair care products, I’ve never tried Superdrug’s Extracts hair products – until just a few weeks ago. So now let me tell you if Superdrug’s Extracts Grapefruit & Papaya Shampoo & Conditioner for fine hair are any good.

I think the shampoo is average. It cleanses alright, it feels OK on my head and in my hair… and that’s basically it. The conditioner is perfectly mediocre too. It’s not a good conditioner, but it’s also not a bad one. If I use a generous amount of product, I can detangle my hair without too much trouble. However, this conditioner doesn’t make my hair feel very smooth – and I haven’t noticed any other benefits.

I will continue to use these products. I think they’re OK for as long as they last me. But I won’t be buying the shampoo or the conditioner again. If you’re looking for great hair care products that smell lovely and cost next to nothing, try Alberto Balsam!

Superdrug’s Extracts Grapefruit & Papaya Shampoo & Conditioner are vegan and cruelty-free. They’re BUAV-approved and they carry the Leaping Bunny logo. Superdrug’s Extracts shampoos and conditioners are usually £1.99 each for 400ml. I paid 89p each (promotion)!

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Buttercream Dream Mud Face Mask

upload-1Hi there! Just a few days ago I picked up a few Montagne Jeunesse face masks at Primark. And I tried one of these masks today.

So let me tell you more about this Montagne Jeunesse Buttercream Dream Mud face mask which claims to leave skin feeling refreshed, cleansed and smooth.

When I applied the mask, I noticed that it contained exfoliating beads. And we’re not talking about those nasty ground walnut shells or crushed apricot stones. This mask contains face-friendly exfoliating beads – and they really made my skin feel clean and smooth!

I think this mask is excellent. It even reminds me of my former favourite face mask (it was my favourite before Superdrug ruined it by adding walnut shell powder, a.k.a. juglans regia shell powder).

Now onto the fragrance! Whilst this mask is supposed to be “vanilla & honey” scented, I don’t think it smells particularly sweet or yummy. But the random (and non-descript) sweetish fragrance isn’t annoying, so I’m not complaining.

I would certainly recommend this face mask! It’s 90p at Primark – so it’s rather cheap. In addition, Montagne Jeunesse’s Buttercream Dream Mud face mask is certified cruelty-free. It carries the Leaping Bunny logo and it’s approved by the Vegetarian Society.

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven Manuka Honey Peel Off Mask

Montagne Jeunsse Manuka Honey Peel OffHi there! Just a few days ago I tried Montagne Jeunesse’s 7th Heaven Manuka Honey Peel-Off Face Mask for the first time.

I think this mask is fantastic, and I know I’ll buy it again! Now let me tell you why I like this face mask so much. 🙂

OK, this mask is like every other peel-off mask out there. You apply it, you let it dry, you peel it off (which is awesome fun), then you wash your face – and that’s it! Job done!

Now I like this mask because it made my face look refreshed and considerably clearer within minutes. It made my face look and feel great – it was that simple. And believe me, it was hard to resist the urge to touch my face all the time… 😀

I also loved the warm honey fragrance – it was delicious! If you like the scent of honey, you’ll love this face mask! So yeah, get it!

Montagne Jeunesse’s 7th Heaven Manuka Honey Peel-Off Face Mask is available for £1 (give or take a few pence – depending on where you shop). This face mask is approved by the Vegetarian Society and by BUAV. It carries the Leaping Bunning logo which means that it’s certified cruelty-free!

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser. I’ve been using this product on and off since January, so it’s time for a review! 🙂 Let’s start with the basics! This cleanser claims to help revive skin’s radiance and to even out skin tone. And in addition it promises to make skin look and feel renewed, soft and ultra-clean.

And how does it work? You’re supposed to massage the cleanser into wet skin (face and neck) to dissolve make-up. Then rinse the muslin cloth in hand-hot water, wring it out, and use it to “polish off” the cleanser. And then just rinse (or splash) your face with water, and pat it dry with a towel. Now that sounds easy enough!

Like I said, I’ve been using this cleanser on and off since January. That’s because I always go back to my Olay Anti-Wrinkle cleansing products which I like bit more. However, this Superdrug cleanser is still very good because it’s quick and easy to use and it cleanses very well. And yes, it makes my skin feel clean and soft! I haven’t noticed any additional skin brightening effect that I could trace back to this cleanser, but since I only use it 1 to 3 times a week, I’m not expecting any miracles.

I would recommend this hot cloth cleanser + muslin cloth duo to everyone who wants to cleanse their face quickly and easily – and with water. I will definitely continue to use this cleanser, and I will stock up on muslin cloths because they seem to be great beauty tools!

Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser is available as 150ml (+ muslin cloth) for £5.99. I paid £2.95 (half price offer).
