100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Optimum Skin Illuminating Glycolic Overnight Peel

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug’s Optimum Skin Illuminating Glycolic Overnight Peel. This product promises to refine, firm and plump the skin, to make fine lines and wrinkles appear smoother, and to enhance and improve the natural skin tone for a radiant and more youthful looking complexion.

All you have to do is apply a small amount of product to your face before you go to bed, and wash it off the next morning. I’ve been using this product at least 4 – 5 times a week since October, so let me tell you more about it. 🙂

I really like this product! The gel texture is nice and easy to use. It feels a little sticky on the face, but I’m OK with that. I also think that this glycolic peel is effective because it makes my skin look more relaxed and more refreshed. Nice!

But the big question is… is this glycolic overnight peel better than Superdrug’s other glycolic overnight peel? I would say… no! I think they’re equally good. This one looks fancier, but the other glycolic peel is a lot cheaper. So whilst I really like this product, I think I’ll continue to buy the cheaper one because it gives me the same results.

Superdrug’s Optimum Skin Illuminating Glycolic Overnight Peel is available as 30ml for £12.99. I paid £6.45 (half price offer). This product carries the Leaping Bunny logo which means that it’s cruelty-free. In addition, this product is also vegan.

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Cranberry Kiss Peel Off

Hi there! Today’s post is about a Christmas-themed face mask – Montagne Jeunesse Cranberry Kiss Peel Off.

This face mask is like every other peel off mask. Apply the mask, let it dry (for about 15 minutes), peel it off, and rinse off any residue.

Is the mask any good? I think this mask is quite alright. It does what it’s supposed to do, which is perfectly fine. But it’s not groundbreaking. I’ve had better face masks.

I’m also quite sure that I’ve had this mask before. It seems like this is one of Montagne Jeunesse’s older or even regular face masks that’s been repackaged.

Anyway, if you’re interested, this face mask is available for 90p at Primark. Montagne Jeunesse Cranberry Kiss Peel Off is also certified cruelty-free!

100% Cruelty-Free – Sweet Snuggles Christmas Cookie Body Scrub & Vanilla Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 Christmas-themed body products – Sweet Snuggles Christmas Cookie Body Scrub & Sweet Snuggles Vanilla Body Butter.

These products were part of a small gift set which I bought last year. I spotted the exact same gift set at Superdrug just a few days ago. So I decided to give these products a try!

Sweet Snuggles Christmas Cookie Body Scrub smells like… Christmas cookies! The scrub itself is nice as well. It’s easy to spread, it’s not too harsh, but it’s effective!

Sweet Snuggles Vanilla Body Butter is lovely. The body butter is very rich, and the fragrance is the sweetest, warmest and cuddliest spicy vanilla. Fantastic stuff!

Sweet Snuggles Christmas Cookie Body Scrub & Sweet Snuggles Vanilla Body Butter are available as part of Superdrug’s Sweet Snuggles Bathing Set which I saw on sale for £3.50 the other day. The body scrub and the body butter are 100ml each.

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Fruity Beauty Peel Off

Hi there! Today’s post is about Montagne Jeunesse’s Fruity Beauty Peel Off face mask. This face mask is exclusive to Primark where you can buy it for 90p.

This mask is a regular peel-off mask. You apply it, let it dry (15 minutes), peel it off, wash your face… and that’s already it! 🙂

So how’s the mask? I think it’s really nice. It made my skin feel soft and clear, and I loved the tropical mango and lemon fragrance.

I would recommend this face mask to anyone who’s looking for an effective peel-off mask that smells like… summer and sun. 🙂

Montagne Jeunesse’s Fruity Beauty Peel Off face mask is certified cruelty-free. It carries the Leaping Bunny logo!

Have you tried this mask or would you like to try it? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Pumpkin Pie Sauna Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mask I picked up a few weeks ago – Montagne Jeunesse Pumpkin Pie Sauna Mask.

I like a good sauna mask, and the pumpkin pie theme sounded perfect for this time of year. So there was no reason not to buy it. 🙂

Now that I’ve tried this face mask, I’m happy to report that it’s freakishly amazing! This mask isn’t just a sauna mask, it’s also a scrub mask!

This means that the mask is self-heating, so it opens the pores. And on top of that you can give your face a good scrub for that extra deep clean feel!

I’m really glad I bought this mask. And I would recommend it to everyone! I will definitely pick up a few more of these masks!

Montagne Jeunesse Pumpkin Pie Sauna Mask is exclusive to Primark where you can pick it up for 90p. This product is also certified cruelty-free!

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Zatik Beauty Essentials Passionfruit Cacao Organic Lotion Moisture Recovery

Hi there! Today’s post is about a product I started to use a few weeks ago – Zatik Passionfruit Cacao Organic Lotion Moisture Recovery. Zatik is a cruelty-free brand from Glendale, California. Zatik uses fresh herbs cultivated on USDA-certified organic farms.

This moisturiser (which is not only certified cruelty-free, but also vegan) was formulated with a blend of organic herbs, flowers, fruits, and essential fatty acids from oils which encourage skin softening and daily moisture protection. This product contains a number of awesome ingredients, such as caocoa butter, shea butter, safflower oil, jojoba oil, passionflower extract and vitamin E!

On the back of the box it says that, if you have normal skin, you’re supposed to use the moisturiser in the morning. And if you have dry skin, you’re supposed to use it mornings and nights.

This moisturiser doesn’t contain sunscreen. This means that, if I were to use it in the morning, I would have to apply a moisturiser with SPF on top of it. Since this wouldn’t make sense at all, I decided to use this moisturiser as my night cream.

Now that I’ve used this product for almost 3 weeks, I’m ready to review it. The first thing I noticed was the product’s smell. It’s not unpleasant, but it’s that kind of ‘meh’ smell that you somehow accept because the product is all natural and doesn’t contain any artificial fragrances. But there’s good news because the scent doesn’t linger! 🙂

In terms of hydration I would say that this product is alright. I think that it maintains the current state of my skin. However, I doubt that this product would help with dry skin. And I doubt that using the product twice a day would make a difference. Why? Well, it’s simply not that hydrating. Having said that, I think this moisturiser would be a lot more suitable for people with normal or normal to oily skin.

Whilst I am happy to finish this moisturiser, I don’t think that I would buy it again. However, I am very interested in trying more products from this brand!

Zatik Passionfruit Cacao Organic Lotion Moisture Recovery is vegan and cruelty-free. The product even carries the Leaping Bunny logo! The product is available as 50ml for $26 (Zatik’s web site). I paid £5 (TK Maxx).

100% Cruelty-Free – Superdrug De-Stressing Mud Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug’s De-Stressing Mud Mask.

This product promises a deep and purifying cleanse. At the same time the mask also promises to relax your mind.

I think this mask is alright. It’s considerably thinner than all the other Superdrug clay or mud masks that I’ve tried, but it gets the job done.

The mask smells soapy, it has a minty colour, and it’s quite similar to Anatomicals’ Mattifying Face Mask. It may actually be the exact same product. 🙂

Superdrug’s De-Stressing Mud Mask. is 100% cruelty-free. It’s BUAV-approved, and it’s suitable for vegetarians. And it’s 99p only!
