Hi there! It’s the last working day of the month, so today’s post is about my current beauty favourites. As always, I’ve picked my favourites from all the products I reviewed this past month. I’ll start with the TOP 3, but I’ve thrown in a few honourable mentions as well.

3rd place – Superdrug B. Vitalised Vitamin Facial Spritz
This is a lovely face mist that I can’t wait to buy again.

Runner-Up – Boots Botanics All Bright Hydrating Day Cream SPF 15
Boots did a fantastic job with this day cream. It hydrates my skin deeply, and I really love it!

WINNER – Superdrug Deep Action Extreme Skin Brightening Solution
This is the best skin brightening product I’ve ever tried. Priced at £5.99, it’s a total steal!

Onto the honourable mentions! I love Boots’ Botanics All Bright Cleansing Foam Wash (which came in 4th), Original Source’s Hydrating Water Infusions Grapefruit & Mint is just fabulous, and Good Things Spa’s Manuka Honey Nourishing Body Wash is super lovely.

I’m enjoying Manhattan’s Lip Jelly, I adore the 3 Max Factor Eyeshadows I’m using at the moment, and I fell in love with Superdrug’s B. Vivid 058 Filigree Eyeshadow.

Have you tried any of these products? Or would you like to try any of them? Which products have you been loving lately? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

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” the foundation on 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)!
