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 B. Glowing Clay Face Mask, Superdrug B. Purified Clay Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 face masks that I bought in March – Superdrug’s B. Glowing Clay Face Mask and B. Purified Clay Face Mask. These 2 face masks are suitable for all skin types, and they’re vegan and cruelty-free (Leaping Bunny certified).

Superdrug’s B. Glowing Clay Face Mask promises to brighten and exfoliate skin and to refine skin texture. This mask contains a blend of 3 clays, red seaweed and apricot seed powder.

Since the pack provided enough product for 2 uses (10ml), my husband was happy to test the mask with me. We both agree that the mask feels cleansing and exfoliating. In addition, the mask feels extremely cold for the first minute or two, and I can see that some people would find this unpleasant. What else? My husband and I also agree that apricot seed powder is great in body scrubs but that it’s too harsh for facial skin. Because of this, I wouldn’t repurchase the mask.

Superdrug’s B. Purified Clay Face Mask promises to refresh and purify skin and to minimise shine. This face mask contains a blend of oil absorbing ingredients as well as eucalyptus extract.

My husband and I gave this mask a fair try as well, and we liked this one a lot more. My husband found that this mask stung a little around this nose, but I didn’t notice anything unpleasant or scary. This mask is very effective – it sucks the grease right out of the pores. I won’t buy this mask again because it’s too powerful for me. But if you have oily skin, or if your skin tends to develop impurities, you might want to give this mask a try!

Superdrug’s B. Glowing Clay Face Mask and B. Purified Clay Face Mask. are available as 10ml for £2.99 each. I paid £1.45 each (special offer).

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. 🙂

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Flutter Hand Cream

Hi there! Today’s short post is about Superdrug‘s Flutter Hand Cream. It’s been a while since I bought this hand cream, but the Flutter brand always makes an appearance around Christmas and Valentine’s Day, and this year’s Christmas collection looks pretty much like last year’s! 😉 Now… onto the review!

I think this is a lovely hand cream. Whilst it’s more of a summer hand cream than a winter hand cream, I do enjoy the light formula because it’s absorbed almost instantly. This hand cream makes my hands feel super soft, and the subtle floral fragrance is very nice! I’d describe the fragrance as yellow and happy. 🙂

Superdrug‘s Flutter Hand Cream is available as 60ml for £1. In addition, this hand cream is suitable for vegans, and it’s certifed cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo). I think Superdrug’s Flutter hand cream would make a great stocking filler!

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)!

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

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Naturally Radiant Glycolic Tonic with 5% glycolic acid.

In addition to glycolic acid, this product also contains kiwi, lemon and mulberry fruit extracts, lotus flower extract and witch hazel.

This toner claims to… help revive skin’s radiance, even out skin tone, refine pores, retexturise the skin surface, and make fine lines and wrinkles appear smoother. The promised result is a brighter, healthier and more youthful complexion.

Use this product like any other toner. Superdrug recommends it be used twice a day (mornings and evenings). I’ve been using this toner once a day (evenings) on most days since some time in July, and I think it worked wonders for me.

I don’t think this toner refined my pores at all, but it did everything else it promised. This summer, I’ve had new dark skin patches (I learned that this is called melasma) develop on my forehead, above my upper lip, on the bridge of my nose, and on my cheekbones. Thanks to this toner, these dark patches have almost disappeared. I can still see them if I take a very close and prolonged look, but this toner has been amazing at brightening and evening out my skin tone.

I have been really impressed with this toner. I already bought 4 back-up bottles! I would also recommend this toner to everyone! If you don’t at least give this toner a try, it’s your own fault!

Superdrug‘s Naturally Radiant Glycolic Tonic with 5% glycolic acid is available as 100ml for £5.99. I paid £2.99 (half price promotion). This product is suitable for vegans, and it’s certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo).
