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)!

Nail Of The Day – B. Complete 154 Brit & Stamping With MoYou Sailor 06 and Pueen 91

Hi there! I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with B. Complete 154 Brit (2 coats). This is supposed to be a long-lasting quality polish, but it’s not. Sensationally dull finish. Tip-wear in record time. I paid 10p (!) for this polish, and this is exactly what it’s worth!

Here’s what I used to stamp:
MoYou London Sailor 06 plate and MoYou London Powder Blue stamping polish (ring and middle fingers).

And Pueen 91 plate (from Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure stamping plate collection) and MoYou Cancun Coral stamping polish (pinkies, index fingers, thumbs).

Nail Of The Day – Superdrug B. Complete 154 Brit, Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 419 Coat Of Arms, Essence 3D Glitter 10 Glorious Aquarius, Essie As Gold As It Gets, Essie Rock At The Top & Nail Decals

Hi there! Let me show you another mani I did not too long ago!

For this mani I painted my nails with B. Complete 154 Brit (2 coats, ring fingers, thumbs) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 419 Coat Of Arms (2 coats, middle fingers).

And I used white and blue floral decals on my pinkies and index fingers.

I thought this mani would look better with glitter, so I top-coated my nails with Essie As Gold As It Gets (pinkies, index fingers), Essie Rock At The Top (ring fingers, thumbs), and Essence 3D Glitter 10 Glorious Aquarius.

I really liked this blue, white and gold glittery floral look. Do you like blue manicures? Do you like nail decals and glitter? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 322 Sweet ‘N’ Spicy, Superdrug B. Complete 163 Rainy Day & Stamping With Pueen 72

Hi there! I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 322 Sweet ‘N’ Spicy (3 coats, pinkies, index fingers, thumbs) and Superdrug B. Complete 163 Rainy Day (3 coats, ring and middle fingers).

I used 3 different stamping plates – Pueen‘s 72 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Stamping Buffet collection) for the full nail images, and 2 unbranded stamping plates for the small images.

The black polish I stamped with is a homemade mix (housed in a Rimmel bottle).

I really liked this mani. The colour combo is a bit unusual, but I think it really works!

20+ New Products – Boots AND Superdrug Haul!

Hi there! It’s almost Christmas. And since I’m planning some serious shopping this Boxing Day, I wanted to show you what I’ve bought so far this month. I expect to do another haul post after Christmas though. 🙂 OK, this is what I bought this month.
haul-26
I stocked up on Superdrug’s konjac sponges. They’re £1.99 each, but they’re on a 3 for 2 offer. So I bought 3 more. There are only two sponges in the picture, I know. Sponge number 3 is already in the bathroom, it’s ready to be used once I’ve thrown out my current sponge (which will happen in a few days).

I picked up Zoella’s Kissy Missy Lip Balm for £1. And I also bought B.’s Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spritz. It was £3.95 (half price offer) and I’ve wanted to try it for some time. So I bought it.

I bought two Body Fantasies fragrances – Twilight Mist and Pink Grapefruit Fantasy. I already have Grapefruit Fantasy, but these two were on a 2 for £3 offer, and they’re usually £3.99 each. And since I could have two body mists for less than the price of one, I just bought another Pink Grapefruit Fantasy body mist. By the way, I hate the Twilight Mist fragrance. I think it’s the stuff of nightmares. It smells like a cheaper version of Britney Spears’ Fantasy. My teenage relative will love it, no doubt!
haul-29
I bought another Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Eye Cream. This eye cream isn’t brightening at all, but otherwise it’s a fairly nice eye cream. And it was £2.95 only. And finally I got my hands on Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Hot Cloth Cleanser. This was £2.95 as well.

I also swung by my local Boots store. I bought Boots’ Botanics Triple Age Renewal Day Cream, Night Cream and Super Serum, and Boots’ Botanics Radiant Youth Microdermabrasion Polish. These products were £4 each.
haul-28
And I bought six products from Boots’ Botanics All Bright range – Radiance Concentrate Serum, Day Cream, Night Cream, Toner, Cleansing Cream and Face Wash. These products were £2.50 each.
haul-30
I’ve also stocked up on the Hyaluronic Acid face mists. Initially I bought one, but I liked it so much and I knew it would be stupid not to stock up. So I bought 4 more. The price was the same as before – £3.95 per bottle.

Superdrug’s face masks were on a buy 1 get 2nd half price offer. The face masks are 99p each, and because of the offer I paid £2.98 in total for the 4 face masks.
haul-27
I also noticed that Superdrug had revamped their Extracts hair care collection. The bottle design is new, and they also had a few new fragrances. I liked Grapefruit & Papaya and Aloe Vera & Mango. These were 89p each. Normally the Extracts products are £2.29 each, but there was a better than half price offer.

So this is what I bought this month. I spent just over £71 which isn’t much at all considering I got myself 5 hyaluronic acid face mists! I’m really happy with what I bought (even though I needed none of these products) – but I know I’ll go out hunting for bargains again soon.

Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for stopping by! I appreciate it! And Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
