100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Nourishing Pro-Vitamin B5 Body Lotion For Dry Skin

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Nourishing Pro-Vitamin B5 Body Lotion For Dry Skin.

In addition to pro-vitamin B5, this body lotion also contains vitamin E which is known to be beneficial for the skin.

I’ve been using this body lotion for a few days now, and I do like it!

This body lotion smells lovely. It has a fresh and fruity scent. I can’t put my finger on it, but it reminds me of pomegranate and spring flowers. Nice!

I’m also happy with the formula. The body lotion sinks right into my skin without leaving a sticky film behind. I’m happy that I don’t have to wait (=waste time) between moisturising and getting dressed.

This is a nice body lotion, and I would recommend it!

Superdrug Nourishing Pro-Vitamin B5 Body Lotion For Dry Skin is available as 375ml for £1.49.

Also, this body lotion is vegan and certified cruelty-free – it carries the Leaping Bunny logo! 😍

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Vitamin C Detox Skincare Brightening Vitamin C Tonic

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Vitamin C Detox Skincare Brightening Vitamin C Tonic which I’ve been using since I finished Boots’ Glycolic Acid Toner some time in June (or July).

This toner with kakadu plum and goji berry promises to brighten, smooth and exfoliate the skin for a more radiant complexion.

The instructions state that you’re supposed to use this toner after you’ve cleansed your face in the evening. Use it like any other regular toner.

I’m using this toner in the morning – within minutes after coming out of the shower. I’m also working from home, so there is no risk of me getting a sunburn.

How’s the toner? It’s excellent! One of my favourite skin care products this year – but not just for this year. It has brightened my skin so much, it’s insane! No spots, no dry patches – just bright and beautiful skin! This toner is almost finished, but I will repurchase it very soon. This toner is a new beauty staple!

Superdrug Vitamin C Detox Skincare Brightening Vitamin C Tonic is available as 100ml for £4.99. I bought this and another product from this collection on a special Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price offer.

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Layering Lab Exotic Body Mist, Superdrug Layering Lab Gelato Body Mist

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug Layering Lab Exotic Body Mist and Superdrug Layering Lab Gelato Body Mist. I bought these after the successful purchase of the Blossom scent from the same collection as that one’s a dupe for Thierry Mugler’s Alien!

Let’s start with Superdrug Layering Lab Exotic Body Mist with orange blossom and night jasmine, which, according to a bunch of reviews, is a dupe for YSL Black Opium. I would agree that it has similarities to YSL Black Opium – it has that recognisable mix of sugary coffee and flowers. However, Exotic smells like a cheap hairspray version of it – especially in the beginning right after you sprayed it. I will use it here and there as my husband likes the scent once the initial hairspray note is gone, but I won’t repurchase it.

Onto Superdrug Layering Lab Gelato Body Mist with orange, cedarwood and ambergris! I’m not sure what this is supposed to be a dupe for. This is a simple fruity-floral body mist. It smells rather pleasant, but it’s nothing special. A safe (yet not very exciting) blind buy. I will continue to use it (and will probably finish it this month), but I don’t know if I’d repurchase it.

If you’re interested, Superdrug Layering Lab Exotic Body Mist and Superdrug Layering Lab Gelato Body Mist are available as 100ml each for £3.99 each. Superdrug runs promotions on the Layering Lab products frequently, and I bulk-bought about a dozen of these body mists (mainly “Blossom” and a few others to test) when they were on special.

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Calm Skin Skincare Blemish Rescue Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Calm Skin Skincare Blemish Rescue Gel.

I’ve had this product in my stash for a while, but I only just gave it a try.

This blemish gel contains chamomile, niacinamide and salicylic acid. It promises to target and improve blemishes in 1 hour.

How does it work? Apply a thin (!) layer to target blemishes and red patches once or twice a day.

I’ve been using this blemish gel on a few skin impurities over the past few weeks, and I think this stuff is really powerful. I would agree that it helps calm down blemishes, and I’m happy to continue to use it.

If you’re interested, Superdrug Calm Skin Skincare Blemish Rescue Gel is available as 15ml for £2.99. I bought it and another product from this range when Superdrug ran a Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price promotion.

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Vitamin C Detox Skincare Revitalising Jam Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Vitamin C Detox Skincare Revitalising Jam Face Mask. This face mask contains sugar, orange peel, goji berry and kakadu plum, and it promises to exfoliate, to purify and to brighten the skin.

How does it work? Superdrug recommends you apply a thin layer to your face. Leave the mask on for 5-10 minutes, then splash some water onto your skin and massage the product all over your face in circular motions.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s fun to use! It’s really sticky – like jam indeed. It has a bit of a warming effect which I found unusual but not bad at all. The sugar can be seen and felt – it acts as an exfoliant – not when you apply the mask, but once you massage the product all over your face before you wash it off.

I’m not sure if the mask has an actual brightening effect, but based on my experience, I would recommend it. If you’re interested, Superdrug Vitamin C Detox Skincare Revitalising Jam Face Mask is available as 75ml for £4.99. I bought it alongside another product from the same product range when Superdrug ran a Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price promotion. Also, this product is vegan and certified cruelty-free. It carries the Leaping Bunny! 😍

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Smoothing All Over Body Cream With Acacia Collagen

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Smoothing All Over Body Cream With Acacia Collagen. This body cream is aimed at people with mature or dry skin, and it promises to replenish and to hydrate the skin. Sounds great! What else sounds great? This product is certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo), and it’s suitable for vegans! 😍 Onto the review!

I’ve been using this body cream for about 4 weeks now, and I love it! The formula is amazing – it’s very hydrating, but it feels so light and the cream is absorbed in no time. It makes my skin feel amazing, and it’s perfect for warmer summer days! The fragrance is outstanding too. It’s sweet, floral, powdery and dreamy – it reminds me a bit of Superdrug’s limited edition moonstone extract body cream from 2019.

All in all, this is a great body cream! Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Smoothing All Over Body Cream With Acacia Collagen is available as 300ml for £4.99. I bought it (and another body cream) when Superdrug ran a Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price promotion.

100% Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Antioxidant Fruit Sorbet Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Antioxidant Fruit Sorbet Face Mask with raspberry, cranberry and red grape.

I used to like this mask (initially I didn’t cae for it, but it grew on me after a few uses). I haven’t used it in years though (the reason is my ever growing stash of face masks).

When I saw that Superdrug gave their own-brand face mask collection a make-over, I thought it’s time to repurchase a few of the masks I used to like or love.

This peel-off mask is supposed to left on for 10-20 minutes (until it’s dry). It promises to remove dead skin cells and to leave skin with a radiant glow.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s good. I enjoyed the fruity fragrance, and I’m happy to report that the mask left my skin feeling super soft. I will definitely buy this mask again – hopefully it won’t be another couple of years!

If you’re interested, Superdrug Antioxidant Fruit Sorbet Face Mask with raspberry, cranberry and red grape is available as a ml single-use mask for 99p. I bought 3 of these masks on a 3 for 2 offer.

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Layering Lab Fresh Body Mist, Superdrug Layering Lab Sorbet Body Mist

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 body mists – Superdrug Layering Lab Fresh Body Mist and Superdrug Layering Lab Sorbet Body Mist. I picked these up after the Blossom body mist from the same collection blew me away. And I’ve now given them a try…

Superdrug Layering Lab Fresh Body Mist is supposed to smell of citrus, apple and peony. I’d describe the scent as a cheap apple hairspray scent. Maybe something a young teen would enjoy. But this stuff is not worth my time. I’ll give it away.

Superdrug Layering Lab Sorbet Body Mist is supposed to smell of peach sorbet, plum and raspberries. According to some of the reviewers at Superdrug, this body mist smells like Viktor & Rolf Bon Bon; someone else likened it to a Britney Spears fragrance. I don’t know either of those fragrance, but I’d be shocked if anything above £5 were to smell like this body mist. What does it smell like? Pretty much like a mix of burnt sugar mixed with burnt berries. It’s not pleasant at all. I can definitely see that some young teens might like this, maybe to cover up BO after PE/gym or exercising? But this stuff is more of a smell than a scent. I will give this stuff away too.

If you’re interested, Superdrug Layering Lab Fresh Body Mist and Superdrug Layering Lab Sorbet Body Mist are available as 100ml for £3.99 each. On top of this, Superdrug often runs promotions on these Layering Lab products. I bought them when they were on special. To end this post on a positive note, these products are vegan and certified cruelty-free (they carry the Leaping Bunny logo).

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Body Wash, Body Lotion, Shower Foam & Shower Jelly

Hi there! Today’s post is about a bunch of body products – Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Body Wash, Body Lotion, Shower Foam & Shower Jelly. I bought these products because they’re supposed to match the fragrance of Superdrug’s Layering Lab Blossom Body Mist which is a perfect dupe for Mugler’s Alien fragrance. Let’s see if the body products are any good!

Let’s start with Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Body Wash which is actually the last Blossom products I tried. I think this is a basic shower gel. I hate the bottle and the formula. It takes a lot of time and effort to squeeze the shower gel out of the tube. I don’t even understand what the problem is… with respect to the fragrance… it’s pretty random, and it bears no resemblance to Mugler’s Alien fragrance!

Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Body Lotion is OK. What I like about it is that it’s quick and easy to massage into the skin, and that it doesn’t leave a sticky film on the skin. However, the fragrance is not my favourite – it’s a sharp artificial scent. Fortunately, it evaporates quickly. No resemblance to Mugler’s Alien.

Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Shower Foam (150ml) was the first product of this bunch that I tried. The foam is fun to use, but it doesn’t feel very cleansing. And the fragrance is best described as negligible. It hardly smells of anything, and the little fragrance there is… well, it’s not even nice. No resemblance to Mugler’s Alien.

Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Shower Jelly (200ml) is an odd product. I’ve never used a shower jelly, so I didn’t know what to expect. To make a long story short… I didn’t like the formula. The jelly is quite stiff, and it takes ages to transform it into a lather. Some patches of jelly remained jelly. It was impossible to lather them up. If all shower jellies are like this, I’ll be happy to never touch one again. With respect to the fragrance… it’s a random sharp fragrance. It’s not as bad as the shower foam or the body lotion, but also no resemblance to Mugler’s Alien.

All in all, I wouldn’t buy these products again. Based on the poor quality of these products, I won’t be trying any other shower, bath or body care product from the Layering Lab collection, regardless of the fragrance. On a positive note, these products are 100% vegan and cruelty-free, they’re even certified by BUAV – they carry the Leaping Bunny logo! If you’re interested, these products start at £3.99, and Superdrug usually runs some kind of offer on the Layering Lab products. I bought these when they were on Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price, so just under £12 for these 4 products. Still, a total waste of money in my book – I’m really struggling to finish these products. I’m forcing myself to keep using them!

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Original Moisturising Shower Cream

Hi there! Happy Wednesday! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Original Moisturising Shower Cream.

This shower cream promises a rich lather that gently cleanses the skin without drying it out. It also claims to leave skin feeling softer.

I’ve been using this shower gel on and off for 3 weeks now, and I’m happy to report that I’m enjoying it.

The fragrance could be stronger – it’s Superdrug’s iconic Vitamin E fragrance after all. But apart from this, I have no reason to complain.

This shower cream feels amazing on my skin, and I can confirm that it’s not drying at all. Great stuff!

Now I wouldn’t say that this shower cream is actually moisturising, but I do feel comfortable skipping my regular body lotion or cream every once in a while when I use this shower cream.

Based on my experience, I would recommend this shower cream. I know I’ll buy it again, and I’m very interested in trying the other fragrances from this line!

Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Original Moisturising Shower Cream is available as 250ml for £2.29. I think I paid £1.20 each (half price offer), but Superdrug also does Buy One Get One Free every now and then on these products. Also – this product is suitable for vegans, and it’s certified cruelty-free as it carries the Leaping Bunny logo!
