100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Revive Hair Care Collagen Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Revive Hair Care Collagen Shampoo & Conditioner combo. These 2 products promise to add a bit of volume to fine hair. I’ve been using these products every morning for about 2 weeks now, and here’s what I think.

Superdrug Revive Hair Care Collagen Shampoo is a clear gel-type of shampoo. I find it cleansing but not stripping. Really nice. I also love the beautiful fragrance. I can’t describe it, but it smells fancy and feminine. A definite repurchase!

Onto Superdrug Revive Hair Care Collagen Conditioner which is just as nice as the shampoo. It detangles my hair with ease – which is something that most volume conditioners aren’t good at. But this conditioner delivers soft hair with a bit of volume. Very nice!

These 2 products are already on my to-buy-again list. I would definitely recommend them! If you’re interested, Superdrug Revive Hair Care Collagen Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 400ml each for £4.99 each. I bought them on a Buy 1 Get 1 Free offer. Also, both products are suitable for vegans and certified cruelty-free – they carry THE Leaping Bunny logo!

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Layering Lab Sweetie Body Mist, Superdrug Layering Lab Oriental Body Mist

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug Layering Lab Sweetie Body Mist and Superdrug Layering Lab Oriental Body Mist. Most of Superdrug’s Layering Lab body mists happen to smell like expensive fragrances. Their Blossom body mist smells like Alien, and their Paradise body mist is pretty close to Olympéa! Now let’s see if Sweetie and Oriental are just as nice.

Superdrug Layering Lab Sweetie Body Mist is supposed to smell like Jean Paul Gaultier La Belle. I don’t know this fragrance. And, unfortunately, NONE of the local drugstores or perfumeries stock it, so I couldn’t test it. Having said that, I do like Sweetie!

When you spray it, the first few seconds are difficult as Sweetie is too loud and too sweet, but it settles quickly and turns into a gentle, non-descript floral fragrance. It definitely has a “French” touch to it, but it also has an obvious drugstore aura. The fragrance is nice and office-safe – just don’t spray it immediately before you enter the office as it needs a few moments to calm down.

Superdrug Layering Lab Oriental Body Mist (“spice, berries, floral”) smells sickeningly sweet. Good grief, what is this fragrance? Dupe lists have it as Diesel Loverdose (which I dislike). But I think it actually smells like Diesel Loverdose Tattoo (which I also dislike), with Britney Spears Fantasy (which I strongly dislike) mixed in, all rounded off with a giant load of whatever concoction vanilla-scented dolls are scented with.

Next time I go to the office, I will “forget” the bottle in one of the bathrooms. Someone else will take it with them, no doubt. If you love super sweet fragrances, you might want to give this one a try. But please, do test before you buy!

If you’re interested, Superdrug Layering Lab Sweetie Body Mist and Superdrug Layering Lab Oriental Body Mist are available as 100ml for £3.99. Superdrug runs special offers on the Layering Lab products most of the time which might come in handy if you want to try different products or if you want to stock up on your favourite cheap scent. Also, these body mists are suitable for vegans, and they’re certified cruelty-free (they carry the Leaping Bunny logo).

100% Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Leafy & Lovely Summer Meadow Hand Lotion

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Leafy & Lovely Summer Meadow Hand Lotion which I picked up at Superdrug a while ago. The Leafy & Lovely collection usually makes an appearance around Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and possibly other such days where women expect presents, although I’m not 100% sure as I don’t keep track of Superdrug’s special promotions. But onto the hand cream now!

I think this hand cream is lovely. It has a fresh, botanical fragrance which is nice and pleasant. The formula is rich but not greasy. So you can use it on the go or at work without having to wait for it to sink into your skin before you touch anything. I also like the tube and the lid which resembles much fancier (and much more expensive) hand creams. However, Superdrug Leafy & Lovely Summer Meadow Hand Lotion is only £1. An incredible bargain if you consider the quality and the pretty design! Also, this hand cream is certified cruelty-free (it carries THE Leaping Bunny logo).

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Naturally Radiant Moisturising Facial Oil

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Naturally Radiant Moisturising Facial Oil with kiwi fruit and mulberry extracts. This facial oil promises to moisturise, brighten, renew and soften the skin.

The instructions state that you should massage 1-2 drops of facial oil into your skin (after cleansing). For a more intensive moisture boost, you should use the facial oil under your night cream.

I’ve been using this facial oil on and off for about 2 months now, and I’m enjoying it very much. I love how it feels on my skin and that it plays well with my other skin care products and with my foundation. And I love how nourishing the facial oil is. At the moment it’s helping my skin heal after an unpleasant psoriasis flare-up.

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this Superdrug Naturally Radiant Moisturising Facial Oill. It’s available as 30ml for £7.99. I paid £3.99 (half price offer at Superdrug). Also, this facial oil is certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo), and it’s suitable for vegans!

Essence XXXL Nude Lipgloss 06 Soft Almond, Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Lip Balm, Malibu Sun Lip Care Vanilla Flavour

Hi there! Today’s post is about 3 lip products I’m using at the moment – Essence XXXL Nude Lipgloss 06 Soft Almond, Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Lip Balm which is 100% vegan and cruelt-free, and Malibu Sun Lip Care Vanilla Flavour.

Let’s start with Essence XXXL Nude Lipgloss 06 Soft Almond! This is a gorgeous lip gloss. It has a subtle sweet flavour and a sheer brownish tint which is a good match for me (pale ginger with green eyes). I also like that the gloss doesn’t slip. All in all, this is a really good lipgloss! I paid £1 for it (Wilko, sale)

Onto Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Lip Balm! I’ve been enjoying this lip balm for a few months now, and it’s almost finished. Why is it good? It has a beautiful texture that glides on and provides a real hydration boost. I’ve even used it around my eyes and my nose to heal broken, flaky skin. One word of caution though – this lip balm has a strong ricinus oil scent – if that’s not your cup of tea, you won’t like this lip balm!

If you’re interested, this lip balm is available as a duo pack for £3.49. I paid just over £2 during a Save 1/3 promotion (which Superdrug runs most of the time). Also, this lip balm is vegan and certified cruelty-free as it carries the Leaping Bunny logo!

Malibu Sun Lip Care Vanilla Flavour is a decent lip balm. It has SPF30 – this is great in many ways. However, this also means that the lip balm stings on broken skin. This lip balm is nice for healthy lips, and I would recommend as a summer holiday lip balm. The sweet vanilla flavour is alright too. Malibu Sun Lip Balms are usually available in sets of 3 for about £1.99 (Home Bargains and other bargain stores although the price may be different).

Whilst this post is not a product comparison, let me rate these lip products from best to 3rd best = Essence lipgloss, Superdrug lip balm, Malibu Sun lip balm. But I like them all; there’s not a single stinker amongst these products!

Revisiting Old Favourites – 100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Naturally Radiant Glycolic Tonic

Hi there! Happy Tuesday! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Naturally Radiant Glycolic Tonic.

This glycolic toner is an old beauty favourite, but I neglected using it for a while because I had so many other toners that I wanted to get to. But I’ve started using in again in September, and I’m over the moon with it. But let’s start with what the product promises…

This toner with 5% glycolic acid, kiwi fruit and mulberry extracts promises to exfoliate and to retexturise the skin, to fade pigment irregularities and to reduce discolouration, to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and to brighten and even out the skin tone. Wow, that’s quite a few promises!

But guess what – this toner keeps all of its promises! I’m using this toner once a day, in the morning, after I’ve showered. I love to start the day with a squeaky clean face, and this toner really makes it happen.

What does it do? It’s the ultimate post-cleansing product that catches all the dirt and gunk that your other cleansers and toners don’t catch. This toner keeps improving my skin tone – my skin is more even and brighter, and, my skin feels and looks smoother as well.

I’m in love with this toner’s exfoliating and brightening powers. It’s just incredible that this toner manages to keep my melasma in check. I know where the dark patches are (one of them is the size of a coaster), but you wouldn’t notice them unless I told you to look for them.

I love this toner so much, and I would recommend it! Since this toner has glycolic acid, please make sure to do a patch test before you use it, and use it gently, at least for the first few days until you’re satisfied that your skin tolerates it. Also make sure to use sunscreen!

If you’re interested, Superdrug Naturally Radiant Glycolic Tonic is available as 100ml for £6.99 and 300ml for £11.99. Superdrug runs Buy 1 Get 1 Free or Better Than Half Price off promotions almost all the time. The 2 toners I bought were on a Buy 1 Get 1 Free deal.

Also, this toner is 100% vegan and certified cruelty-free. It carries THE Leaping Bunny logo! 😍

100% Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Fruity Shea Butter & Bamboo Exfoliating Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Fruity Shea Butter & Bamboo Exfoliating Face Mask which I picked up just a few weeks ago. This face mask promises to give the skin a deep clean and to remove dead skin cells. You’re supposed to apply the mask to cleansed skin, leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then wash it off.

I’ve given this face mask a try, and I think it’s alright. It does exfoliate the skin well, and it has an enjoyable sweet scent. But I’ve had this mask before (Montagne Jeunesse, repackaged several times), and I’m starting to get tired of all the repackaging of old products and formulas.

If you’re interested, Superdrug Fruity Shea Butter & Bamboo Exfoliating Face Mask is available as a 10ml single-use face mask for 99p. This mask is also certified cruelty-free as it carries THE Leaping Bunny logo.

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Vitamin E Moisture Boost Facial Serum

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Vitamin E Moisture Boost Facial Serum which I’ve been using for 4 weeks now.

In addition to vitamin E, this serum contains a blend of natural fruit acids, vitamins A, B, F and H and horse chestnut extracts.

The serum claims to boost the skin’s hydration levels, to care for dry skin, to help stimulate cell renewal, and to shield the skin against environmental damange and premature ageing.

I think this serum is very good! I love the silky and nourishing formula. It’s absorbed almost instantly, and it feels amazing on my skin. It plays well with my eye cream, day and night cream, and with all of my other products, so no complaints here!

I’m also happy with how the serum makes my skin look – so dewy and refreshed! Wow! Definitely a step up from the Valjean Labs serum I finished last month.

Another thing I like is the iconic scent of the Vitamin E skin care range – so warm and tropical! I’m enjoying it so much! This serum is awesome, and I would recommend it!

Superdrug Vitamin E Moisture Boost Facial Serum is available as 50ml for £3.99. Superdrug often runs 3 for 2 promotions – which is when I bought the serum (along with 2 face mists). Also, this serum is 100% vegan and certified cruelty-free – it carries THE Leaping Bunny logo!

100% Vegan & Cruelty- Free – Superdrug Layering Lab Paradise Body Mist

Hi there! Happy Tuesday! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Layering Lab Paradise Body Mist.

The fragrances in the Layering Lab collection are meant to be worn “individually or mixed together for a unique scent.”

Although the biggest selling point is that the fragrances in the Layering Lab collection are meant to smell like designer fragrances. I am happy to confirm that the Blossom Body Mist (but not the EdT) is a perfect dupe for Mugler’s Alien.

What about Paradise? Well, the notes shown on the bottle are tangerine, green tea and vanilla, and according to a bunch of reviewers, Paradise is supposed to smell like Paco Rabanne’s Olympéa.

I’ve given this body mist a try, and I agree that it smells similar to Olympéa. It’s a bit sweeter, but at the same time it’s also airier – which makes sense because it’s a body mist concentration. If Paco Rabanne  did a body mist for their Olympéa fragrance, this is exactly what it would smell like, no doubt!

Based on my experience, I would recommend this body mist for sure!

If you’re interested, Superdrug Layering Lab Paradise Body Mist is available as 100ml for £3.99. There’s always some kind of special offer going on, so you can usually buy multiple bottles and still save a little. This body mist is also suitable for vegans, and it’s certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo).

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Naturally Radiant Refreshing Complete Cleanser

Hi there! Happy Thursday! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Naturally Radiant Refreshing Complete Cleanser.

This product is a foam wash, and it works like pretty much every other face wash.

According to Superdrug, this product contains kiwi fruit and mulberry extracts, and it claims to help revive the skin’s radiance, to effctively remove impurities and excess oils, and to melt away make-up. The promised result is clean, refreshed and comforted skin.

Does this product keep its promises? Well, this face wash is a lot better than the last one I used. However, that doesn’t mean much.

The first thing I noticed about this face wash is its smell. Nope, it’s not a fragrance or a scent. It really is a smell! I can’t describe it properly… maybe industrial strength cleaner mixed with poison? Fortunately, the smell is fleeting, so it doesn’t linger.

With respect to its actual cleansing properties, I think this face wash is just about average. It’s OK. It’s nothing special at all.

I’m satisfied that this product gives my skin a gentle cleanse in the morning, but that’s basically it. I know I won’t buy it again once it’s finished.

If you’re interested, Superdrug Naturally Radiant Refreshing Complete Cleanser is available as 150ml for £6.99. I paid £3.49 (half price offer). Also, this product is vegan and cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo)!
