Hi there! Today I’m reviewing Superdrug’s Cucumber Cooling Clay Mask.
This mask is aimed at people with sensitive skin, and it promises a deep cleanse.
Well, I agree that this mask makes my skin feel and look cleansed. However, the mask isn’t cooling.
When I applied the mask, it actually felt quite warm for a minute (and it was considerably warmer than a self-heating mask).
The warm sensation went away, and my face was 100% fine afterwards. However, I can see how this might scare people – especially those who have suffered skin reactions in the past.
What else… I think this mas smells fairly nice. It’s the same cucumber fragrance that almost every other cucumber skin care product has. And I happen to like that cucumber fragrance!
Superdrug’s Cucumber Cooling Clay Mask is 100% vegan and cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo). It’s 99p at Superdrug, In addition, Superdrug often runs 3 for 2 promotions on face masks!
By the way, this week’s going to be face mask week. I’ve tried quite a few new face masks, and I’ve already written the reviews. And I want to post those reviews! In theory, I could save these reviews for later, but I don’t really want to sit on completed posts, so… I hope you enjoy face mask week! 😀

Hi there! In the past couple of months I haven’t done that much stocking up on stuff I don’t need. 😀 But I just couldn’t resist temptation (offers) the other day. I went to Asda – and found a few items I had to have. And I placed three Superdrug orders in 24 hours. And then I swung by my local Bargain Buys store… Now here’s what I bought!
NSPA Vanilla Fragrance Body Mist (200ml), NSPA Moisturising Shea Butter (200ml), NSPA Pineapple Shower & Bath Gel (500ml) and NSPA Pineapple Fragrance Body Mist (200ml). These products were all on special and they were £2 each.
Dolly’s Mixtures Piña Colada Shower Gel (300ml) and Body Mist (100ml) – these were on special for 75p each! 2 Superdrug Cucumber Peel-Off Mask tubes (75ml each, there was a buy one get second half price offer – so that’s £3.98 in total for 150ml of product), Tommyguns ‘Leave me in Conditioner’ & Styling Crème (250ml) – I bought this one because it was 70p!
3 Superdrug Fruit Sorbet Antioxidant Peel-Off Face Masks – 49p each, 3 for 2 offer – so I paid 98p in total for 3 face masks. B. Soft Blendable Kohl Eyeliner 122 Chocolate and 100 Black – these were 90p each. B. Rich Intense Colour Lipstick 54 Eton Mess and 186 Rose Quartz. The lippies were £1.80 each. And then there’s the B. Sweet Popping Candy Highlight Serum – it was £3.
Superdrug Optimum PhytoBrighter Black Moisturiser and Superdrug Optimum Skin Illuminating Glycolic Overnight Peel. These products are usually £12.99 each – but thanks to a half price offer I paid £6.45 each only.
B. nail polishes were 30p – so I just picked a few randomly – Mulberry, Peach Melba, 3 base coats, Piglet, Minx and Sea Foam.
The day before Superdrug reduced the prices on their B. range dramatically (I think it’s going to be discontinued) was the last day of the 3 for 2 deal on all make-up. I didn’t want to buy anything this time, but MUA nail polishes were 50p only – so I bought 9 polishes for £3 in total. I chose these colours: Red Rose, Leapfrog, Whitewash, Fever Red, Orchid and Pitch Black. I also added two clear polishes to make the most of the 3 for 2 offer. 🙂
I also like to go to Bargain Buys. I always find at least one make-up item or nail polish to buy. This time I bagged 2 NYC nail polish trio packs – they were £1 each. Yes, that’s 6 polishes for £2 in total! The shades in the first set are: I Need A Dollar, Flame The Night and Lavender Cupcake. The shades in the second set are: Love Never Dies, Empire Purple and Perpetual Peony. The picture below is what the trio packs look like. So if you’ve got a Bargain Buys or Poundworld near you, you might want to swing by to check what kind of goodies they’ve got. 🙂
So this is it. Finally! 😀 I didn’t have to buy more skin care, I certainly didn’t need any toiletries, and I don’t even want to mention my nail polish stash (some of the polishes I bought are back-ups of what I’ve already got). But with all those great offers I just couldn’t resist! What can I say? I’m a compulsive bargain hunter! By the way, I only spent just under £44 in total for all of those 42 products – not bad at all! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate it! ♥
