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. 😊

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven Blemish Mud

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven Blemish Mud face mask which is aimed at people with problem skin.

This clay mask contains aloe vera and willow, and it works like pretty much every other clay mask out there. Cleanse your face, apply the mask, let it dry for about 15 minutes, then rinse it off. Job done!

How’s the mask? I think this is an effective clay mask. It’s deeply cleansing, but not drying. I like it a lot, and I will buy it again for sure!

Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven Blemish Mud face mask is 100% cruelty-free. The mask is available as 10ml for about £1. I usually pick up face masks when there’s a 3 for 2 offer.

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 Refreshing Foaming Facial Wash For Normal Skin

Hi there! Today’s post is about the face wash I’m using at the moment – Superdrug‘s Refreshing Foaming Facial Wash for normal skin.

This product with lemon and grape extract promises to remove make-up and impurities gently and effectively, and to refresh and revitalise skin.

I’ve been using this face wash for a few weeks now, and here’s what I think.

I think this face wash is very effective. It cleanses my skin deeply. However, I don’t agree that this product is gentle. It feels very drying. Based on this, I think this face wash is more suitable for people with very oily skin.

Another thing I’m not happy with is the strong fragrance. I love nice fragrances and scented products, but this face wash is just too much! I would describe the fragrance as one of those cheap smelling chemo-cosmetic fragrances. I’m not a fan, and I don’t understand how Superdrug got this fragrance so very wrong…

Based on my experience, I would not recommend this face wash. However, if you have very oily skin, you might want to give this a try.

Superdrug‘s Refreshing Foaming Facial Wash for normal skin is not only suitable for vegans, but also certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo). However, this product is being discontinued (which isn’t surprising), so this is one you will only find in your local Superdrug’s bargain bin.

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Cherry & Macadamia Body Scrub

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing Superdrug‘s Cherry & Macadamia Body Scrub. Superdrug’s own brand body butters and body scrubs seem to be disappearing from the stores. So I thought I should finally give this body scrub (which has been sitting in my stash for ages) a try. Read on if you’d like to know if this product is any good.

I think Superdrug did an amazing job with this body scrub. It’s very effective, it has the perfect consistency, it makes my skin feel insanely soft without being too harsh – and it smells like cherry ice cream! This is an amazing product, and it’s sad that Superdrug has discontinued the entire line. I bought two of these body scrubs, and I’m glad I did!

Superdrug’s Cherry & Macadamia Body Scrub is suitable for vegans. The product is also certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo). This scrub is available as 200ml. It’s £4.99 but I picked it up for half price. 🙂

Superdrug Treat Me Salted Caramel Shower & Bath Soak

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug Treat Me Salted Caramel Shower & Bath Soak.

I’ve been using this shower gel for a few days now, and I’m happy to say that I like it.

Whilst NSPA’s Caramel Fudge shower gel has set the standards for yummy caramel-scented toiletries, Superdrug’s version smells really nice too. It smells just like salted caramel!

I also like how the shower gel feels on my skin. I’m satisfied that it cleanses my skin properly, but it doesn’t feel drying at all.

Superdrug Treat Me Salted Caramel Shower & Bath Soak is available as 500ml for £2.99. I paid £1.49 (half price offer). This products is suitable for vegans, and it’s certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo)!
