100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Gentle Foaming Facial Wash For Dry Skin

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug’s Gentle Foaming Facial Wash For Dry Skin. I paid £1.69 for the 150ml bottle.

It appears that this product has been discontinued recently. However, some stores may have stock left, so someone else might still benefit from a review.

Alrighty… this product promises to remove make-up and impurities and to leave skin feeling fresh and revitalised. It contains vitamin E as well as aloe vera, rose and camomile extracts.

On the back of the bottle it says… dispense 2 to 3 pumps of product into your hand and massage it all over your wet face. Then rinse with warm water… job done.

I’ve been using this product once or twice a week for a few weeks now, so here’s what I think.

First of all, there’s no need to be wasteful. 1 pump dispenses enough foam for my face and my neck. 👍

I love the formula. The foam feels soft and gentle – which is exactly what you want if you have moody skin.

Having said that, I’m satisfied that the foam cleanses my skin properly.

All in all, this is a nice face wash! It’s certified cruelty-free, and it’s suitable for vegans! If your local SD still has it, just pick it up! 🙂

Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel Scrub

Hi there! Today’s post is about Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel Scrub.

This product contains salicylic acid, vitamin C, grapefruit and pomegranate extracts, and it’s aimed at people with oily / problem skin. It promises to unclog and tighten pores and to give skin a radiant glow.

You’re supposed to use the product as a daily face wash. Since I use a konjac or cellulose sponge (+ face wash) to cleanse my face in the shower every morning, I used this product the same way – and I was impressed!

This gel scrub is wonderful. It lathers up very well (it’s like it was designed to be used with a konjac sponge), it feels powerful but not harsh, and it really seems to “sweep up” grease and grime to give my pores a deep cleanse.

I also think that this gel scrub has skin brightening properties. Every time I use this gel scrub, my skin tone looks incredibly even and, yes, radiant. It’s awesome!

Since I have dry and moody skin, I can’t use this gel scrub every day. At the moment I’m using it once or twice a week which seems to work out perfectly.

Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel Scrub is available as 150ml for £4.99. I paid £3.33 (special offer).

100% Awesome – Caolion O2 Sparkling Purifying Soap

Hi there! Today’s post is about Caolion’s O2 Sparkling Purifying Soap. This handmade facial soap is 100% natural. It promises to purify and exfoliate the skin by getting rid of impurities. It also claims to control sebum and to tighten pores. It further promises to hydrate the skin.

A quick look at the ingredients revealed that the soap contains… charcoal powder, lavender oil, tea tree leaf oil, hyaluronic acid, olive fruit oil, jojoba seed oil, cocoa extract, coconut oil, shea butter and licorice root extract. Of course, there are a number of other ingredients, but these are the ones I consider to be the most natural (sounding) ones. 🙂

OK, why is this facial soap so awesome? When I used it for the first time, I noticed a huge difference. My skin felt and looked super clean and my pores were visibly smaller. At the same time my skin didn’t feel dry at all. I was impressed! After about 10 days I also noticed that this soap seemed to have lifted those pesky little mini-blackheads off from my nose. I was blown away!

I think this facial soap is sensational! My husband uses it too – and he loves it just as much! I would recommend this facial soap to everyone! If you don’t try it, you’re missing out!

Caolion’s O2 Sparkling Purifying Soap is available as 25g and 100g. I bought my 25g soap at Boots (where it seems to be out of stock at the moment), and I paid £4!

Olay Hydration & Cleansing 2 In 1 Cleanser & Moisturiser Duo

Hi there! Today’s product is about Olay’s Hydration & Cleansing 2 In 1 Cleanser & Moisturiser Duo with aloe vera and cucumber extracts.

This product promises effective cleansing by removing make-up and impurities. In addition, it claims to hydrate the skin.

How does it work? You can use the cleanser with a cotton wool pad, or you can massage it into your skin and then “polish it off” with a damp muslin cloth.

Apparently you can also use it as a moisturiser (it says so on the back).

So how’s the product? I like it. It dissolves and removes my make-up with ease. Whilst I’m not using this product as a moisturiser, I can feel that it’s hydrating, and I believe it has helped me stay on top of my dry patches this winter.

In summary, I think this cleanser is really nice. I would recommend it to everyone with normal to dry and / or sensitive skin.

Olay’s Hydration & Cleansing 2 In 1 Cleanser & Moisturiser Duo
is exclusive to Superdrug. The 200ml bottle is £2.99. I paid £1.48 (better than half price offer).

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!

Anatomicals Farewell The Scarlet Pimplehell Deep Cleansing Mud Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about a face mask that I recently tried – Anatomicals Farewell The Scarlet Pimplehell Deep Cleansing Mud Mask. This mask is 1 of the 3 masks in Anatomicals’ Now You’re Ready To Face The World mask set. I’ve already reviewed the other 2 masks from the set, and you can read the reviews here and here.

I think that Farewell The Scarlet Pimplehell is a great name for a face mask. It sounds fun. And it sounds promising. I’ve tried this mask and I’m reasonably happy with it. It’s a fairly standard mud mask. It doesn’t smell very fancy, and its colour is grey. But it cleanses my skin nicely, and that’s the most important thing.

All in all I’m happy with Anatomicals’ Now You’re Ready To Face The World trio mask set. I’m pretty sure I’ll buy the set again. Anatomicals’ Now You’re Ready To Face The World trio mask set is available for £3 at Superdrug. I paid £2 only for the set (Save 1/3 offer).

By the way, this week is face mask week on my blog. This means that I’ll post 7 face mask reviews this week. I hope you’ll enjoy face mask week! Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading! 🙂

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Candyfloss Scrub

Hi there! Yesterday I showed you another mani that I did for the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. And today’s post is about Montagne Jeunesse’s Candyfloss Scrub which is exclusive to Primark (where it’s 90p).

This sugar scrub mask is easy to use. Apply the product and massage it over your face. Leave it alone for 10 to 15 minutes. Then rinse.

I think this mask is effective because you exfoliate your skin twice – the first time when you apply the mask, the second time when you rinse it off.

And the mask is fun too! The candy floss fragrance is sweet and authentic, and the gooey texture of the mask makes you think you really have some sort of sugary paste on your face. Awesome fun!

All in all, I would recommend this mask, and I will buy it again. Montagne Jeunesse’s Candyfloss Scrub is certified cruelty-free. It’s BUAV-approved, and it carries the Leaping Bunny logo.
