Hi there! Today’s post is about my current night cream – Super Facialist By Una Brennan Vitamin C + Brighten Sleep & Reveal Night Cream. This night cream promises to rejuvenate skin, to give skin a radiant glow, and to make skin feel smoother. I’ve been using this night cream since early October, and here’s what I think.
The first thing I noticed about this night cream was its citrus fragrance. I love the smell and taste of lemons, oranges and grapefruits, but this citrus fragrance is not my favourite because it’s not very natural, and it’s too strong.
I find the night cream quick and easy to use. It’s absorbed in seconds, and it feels rather light. Based on this, I think the formula is most suitable for those with normal to oily skin. I can also see that it would work well as a summer night cream. However, I don’t think it’s the best night cream for dry skin like mine – at least not for the colder seasons.
I don’t think that this night cream has had any effect on my skin texture or that it improved the look of my skin. It didn’t make my skin feel smoother, and it didn’t make my skin look rejuvenated or more radiant.
Based on my experience, I would not recommend this night cream if you have dry skin. I won’t buy this face cream again. However, if you have normal to oily skin, and you’re looking for an inexpensive night cream with vitamin C, this one might be worth a try.
Super Facialist By Una Brennan Vitamin C + Brighten Sleep & Reveal Night Cream is available as 50ml. I paid £6.99 (TK Maxx).

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Naturally Radiant Brightening Day Cream for normal to dry skin (there is also a face cream for normal to combination skin, but I haven’t tried that one).
This day cream with SPF 15 promises to hydrate and brighten skin with the help of sugar beet and fruit extracts. It also claims to make skin feel softer, smoother and more energised. I’ve been using this product on and off since mid-February. And here’s what I think!
The first thing I need to mention is that this moisturiser is very rich. It’s as rich as the matching night cream. So if you don’t have dry skin, this is not your ideal face cream. However, if you have dry skin, this one’s definitely worth a try!
I can’t comment much on this face cream’s brightening properties. This is because, thanks to a number of different skin brightening products which I’ve been using for a while now, I don’t think that my skin could look any brighter. Having said that, I know from experience that skin brightness and radiance need to be maintained, otherwise it’s back to dull and uneven skin in no time. So… I do think that this face cream helps maintain my skin’s brightness.
I’m not sure whether this face cream makes my skin look more energised. But it makes my skin feel smooth, soft and plump which is nice!
Superdrug‘s Naturally Radiant Brightening Day Cream is 100% vegan and cruelty-free. The 50ml pot is £5.99 which is great value. On top of that, Superdrug runs BOGOF or half price promotions frequently. I paid £2.95 for this face cream! 🙂

Hi there! Today’s post is about the night cream I’ve been using since early July – Superdrug Naturally Radiant Renewing Night Cream. This product promises “to help revive skin’s radiance and even out skin tone” with the help of kiwi fruit extract, mulberry fruit extract, sugar beet extract and fruit acids. And the product claims to make skin smoother, softer, more refreshed and more energised within one week. So is the cream any good? Yes, absolutely. If you read on, I’ll tell you why.
The first thing I’ve noticed about this night cream is its lightweight, yet very moisturising formula. It feels great on my skin, and yes, it makes my skin feel soft and supple. I also like the subtle fragrance – this night cream smells extremely nice!
I’m happy with what this night cream does for the overall appearance of my skin. It really seems to even out my skin tone! Whilst I didn’t see much of a difference after one week, I did notice that my skin looked brighter and generally better after about three weeks. Now, eight weeks later, I can say I’m really satisfied with the cream because it did make my skin look considerably fresher and brighter.
I will continue to use this night cream and I can say for sure that I’ll buy it again. This night cream is now a permanent addition to my beauty staples! So in summary, I would definitely recommend it!
Superdrug Naturally Radiant Renewing Night Cream is available as 75ml for £5.99. I bought mine for £2.95 (half price offer), so don’t forget to check if there’s a deal before you buy! 🙂 If you’d like to try more products from this range, I’d recommend the face mask and the micro polish.
