100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Deep Action Extreme Skin Brightening Solution

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Deep Action Extreme Skin Brightening Solution.

Deep Action is Superdrug’s clear skin range. And now they’ve done 3 new skin care “solutions”. I’ve looked at all of them, but I opted for this one since it seems to be the one with the highest number of active ingredients.

In addition, this product promises to promote brighter and more even skin – so it was an obvious choice!

The instructions state… “Use three times a week, in the evening, on cleansed skin, using a cotton pad. Avoid the eye area and allow to fully absorb into skin.

I think the instructions could have been a lot better. But in a nutshell, you’re supposed to use this product like a toner – just steer clear of your eye area! Once you’ve gone over your face a couple dozen times (yes, that’s how I do it), just leave it alone for a little while (I give it 10 minutes) before you apply any other products to your face.

I’ve been using this product every other night for about 6 weeks now, and I’m blown away! I think this is the most effective brightening product I’ve ever tried. It’s unbelievably powerful, and it’s even better than Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Glycolic Tonic. I agree with Superdrug’s claim that results are visible after 2 weeks. This stuff is incredible! I’ve used it on my face and on my body, and I’m happy to report this product took care of everything!

All in all, I’m glad I bought 2 bottles when they were on a Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price promotion. When Superdrug ran the same promotion again, I bought 4 more bottles!

Superdrug Deep Action Extreme Skin Brightening Solution is vegan and certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo). It’s available as 30ml for £5.99.

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug B. Vitalised Vitamin Facial Spritz

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s B. Vitalised Vitamin Facial Spritz. This product contains caffeine, vitamin C and cucumber juice which promise to energise skin. In addition, the product claims to boots skin radiance for a well-rested and healthy glow.

I’ve used this facial spritz for the past 2 months (I finished it just a few days ago), and I was very happy with it.

Here’s how I used the spray:
1. As the first step in my post-cleansing skin care routine. I spray my face (4-5 sprays), then I apply my serum and then I massage the mix into my skin. This helps me hydrate my skin better, and it makes it easier to spread the serum all over my face and neck.

2. As the second step in my skin care routine. I always let my skin absorb the serum for a few minutes. Then I spray my face again (2-4 sprays) right before I use my day or night moisturiser on my face.

3. In conjunction with my foundation. I use Max Factor’s Pan Stik – which is the only foundation that doesn’t highlight eczema patches – no, it even makes them disappear! The Pan Stik is a heavy full-coverage foundation, but I spray my face again (2 sprays) after I’ve “drawn” foundation all over my face. Then I let it sit for about 20 seconds, and then I blend it with my fingers. I still get the same flawless coverage, but I also get a nice, dewy finish.

4. I also use the spray whenever I want a bit of extra hydration. It works on cleansed skin, as well as over moisturiser or makeup.

Based on my experience, I would recommend this product to everyone! If you have dry skin, you should definitely try a face mist – and you could give this one a try!

Superdrug‘s B. Vitalised Vitamin Facial Spritz. is available as 75ml for £8.99 (it used to be £7.99 but Superdrug increased the prices on their own brand products). I paid £3.89 (half price offer).  This products is also suitable for vegans, and it’s certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo)!

100 Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Lemon & Honey Peel-Off

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Lemon & Honey Peel-Off Mask.

This face mask is aimed at all skin types. It promises to lift away dirt, impurities and dead skin cells for softer skin.

When I gave this mask a try, I wasn’t impressed. Within seconds of applying this mask, it felt hot, almost burning, on my skin. I’ve never experienced this with any other peel-off mask. Fortunately, the burning sensation went away quickly.

Yes, the mask made my skin feel softer, and the honey & lemon lozenge scent is amazing. However, I wouldn’t buy this mask again because it gave me a major scare.

If you’d like to try it, Superdrug‘s Lemon & Honey Peel-Off Mask is available as 10ml. It’s 99p but these masks are on a 3 for 2 promo most of the time. This product is 100% cruelty-free (Leaping Bunny certified) and suitable for vegetarians.

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Moonstone Extract

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Vitamin E All Over Body Cream With Moonstone Extract. This is a limited charity edition (just like this one), and 15% of the price of the product will go to Marie Curie. This is awesome!

About the product itself… this is a body moisturiser that’s aimed at people with normal to dry skin. It contains a number of vitamins – E, A, B5, F and H, as well as coconut oil, horse chestnut extract, and moonstone extract.

I’ve been using this moisturiser for about 2 weeks now, and I’m blown away! The formula is something between Superdrug’s light Vitamin E moisturiser and a body butter. It has the best of both worlds – proper hydration, no stickiness. This makes it very suitable for all seasons, even for warm-to-hot summer days. 😍

The fragrance is very lovely too. I can’t describe it properly, but it’s a mix of pearls, powder and a hint of poppies. It’s gorgeous!

I’m very happy with this moisturiser, and I’d recommend it! Superdrug‘s Vitamin E All Over Body Cream With Moonstone Extract is suitable for vegans and certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo). It’s available as 465ml for £3.49. Superdrug runs Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price promotions on their Vitamin E stuff most of the time – and that’s why I picked up 2 tubs for £5.24. 😊

The Battle Of The Glycolic Acid Cleansing Pads – Superdrug Naturally Radiant Glycolic Acid Daily Cleansing Pads VS Superdrug B. Soft Multi Acid Retexturising Pads

Hi there! Today’s post is a product comparison. Not too long ago I purchased Superdrug‘s Naturally Radiant Glycolic Acid Daily Cleansing Pads and Superdrug‘s B. Soft Multi Acid Retexturising Pads. It’s obvious these come from the same supplier, and the majority of the ingredients are identical. However, these products aren’t the same!

Superdrug‘s Naturally Radiant Glycolic Acid Daily Cleansing Pads are pretty awesome. They promise to awaken skin’s natural glow and to improve skin tone and texture.

I’m always using at least 1 brightening product, so it’s not always easy to determine which product does what. However, these cleansing pads are really something! I’m satisfied they maintained my skin’s brightness, and an improvement in my skin texture could be felt after a single use. In case you’re wondering, I used these 5 times a week (on the tub it says these can be used twice daily, but I didn’t want to over-exfoliate).

Superdrug‘s B. Soft Multi Acid Retexturising Pads do essentially the same thing. I have no doubt they work jus as well because the difference in ingredients is minimal. However, they don’t feel as powerful. I think there are 2 reasons for this:

1. the Naturally Radiant pads have a strong scent that matches the power of the product. The B. pads aren’t fragranced.
2. whilst the B. pads are moist, the Naturally Radiant pads are wet, so it feels like you’re getting more out of them.

All in all, these are great products, but the Naturally Radiant cleansing pads are the winners of The Battle Of The Glycolic Acid Cleansing Pads. I will repurchase the Naturally Radiant pads, no doubt! Superdrug‘s Naturally Radiant Glycolic Acid Daily Cleansing Pads and Superdrug‘s B. Soft Multi Acid Retexturising Pads are available in tubs with 60 pads each. They’re usually £5.99 each, but I paid £2.99 each (half price offer).

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Deep Action Deep Cleansing Charcoal Peel-Off Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Deep Action Deep Cleansing Charcoal Peel-Off Mask.

This face mask with activated charcoal, birch leaf and witch hazel promises to absorb excess oil and to cleanse pores deeply for a fresh and clear complexion.

I’ve tried this mask, and I think it works. It makes my skin feel clean and clear, and I agree that it removes excess oils – this is very noticeable around the nose!

Based on my experience, I would recommend this mask to anyone who’s looking for an inexpensive but effective (charcoal) peel-off mask that helps with oily skin or skin impurities. 👍

Superdrug‘s Deep Action Deep Cleansing Charcoal Peel-Off Mask is available as 10ml for 99p. Superdrug ran a Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price promotion, so I bought 2 masks.

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug B. Glowing Clay Face Mask, Superdrug B. Purified Clay Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 face masks that I bought in March – Superdrug’s B. Glowing Clay Face Mask and B. Purified Clay Face Mask. These 2 face masks are suitable for all skin types, and they’re vegan and cruelty-free (Leaping Bunny certified).

Superdrug’s B. Glowing Clay Face Mask promises to brighten and exfoliate skin and to refine skin texture. This mask contains a blend of 3 clays, red seaweed and apricot seed powder.

Since the pack provided enough product for 2 uses (10ml), my husband was happy to test the mask with me. We both agree that the mask feels cleansing and exfoliating. In addition, the mask feels extremely cold for the first minute or two, and I can see that some people would find this unpleasant. What else? My husband and I also agree that apricot seed powder is great in body scrubs but that it’s too harsh for facial skin. Because of this, I wouldn’t repurchase the mask.

Superdrug’s B. Purified Clay Face Mask promises to refresh and purify skin and to minimise shine. This face mask contains a blend of oil absorbing ingredients as well as eucalyptus extract.

My husband and I gave this mask a fair try as well, and we liked this one a lot more. My husband found that this mask stung a little around this nose, but I didn’t notice anything unpleasant or scary. This mask is very effective – it sucks the grease right out of the pores. I won’t buy this mask again because it’s too powerful for me. But if you have oily skin, or if your skin tends to develop impurities, you might want to give this mask a try!

Superdrug’s B. Glowing Clay Face Mask and B. Purified Clay Face Mask. are available as 10ml for £2.99 each. I paid £1.45 each (special offer).
