100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Optimum Skin Illuminating Glycolic Overnight Peel

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug’s Optimum Skin Illuminating Glycolic Overnight Peel. This product promises to refine, firm and plump the skin, to make fine lines and wrinkles appear smoother, and to enhance and improve the natural skin tone for a radiant and more youthful looking complexion.

All you have to do is apply a small amount of product to your face before you go to bed, and wash it off the next morning. I’ve been using this product at least 4 – 5 times a week since October, so let me tell you more about it. 🙂

I really like this product! The gel texture is nice and easy to use. It feels a little sticky on the face, but I’m OK with that. I also think that this glycolic peel is effective because it makes my skin look more relaxed and more refreshed. Nice!

But the big question is… is this glycolic overnight peel better than Superdrug’s other glycolic overnight peel? I would say… no! I think they’re equally good. This one looks fancier, but the other glycolic peel is a lot cheaper. So whilst I really like this product, I think I’ll continue to buy the cheaper one because it gives me the same results.

Superdrug’s Optimum Skin Illuminating Glycolic Overnight Peel is available as 30ml for £12.99. I paid £6.45 (half price offer). This product carries the Leaping Bunny logo which means that it’s cruelty-free. In addition, this product is also vegan.

100% Cruelty-Free – Superdrug De-Stressing Mud Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug’s De-Stressing Mud Mask.

This product promises a deep and purifying cleanse. At the same time the mask also promises to relax your mind.

I think this mask is alright. It’s considerably thinner than all the other Superdrug clay or mud masks that I’ve tried, but it gets the job done.

The mask smells soapy, it has a minty colour, and it’s quite similar to Anatomicals’ Mattifying Face Mask. It may actually be the exact same product. 🙂

Superdrug’s De-Stressing Mud Mask. is 100% cruelty-free. It’s BUAV-approved, and it’s suitable for vegetarians. And it’s 99p only!

Reducing My Oldies Stash – 100% Cruelty-Free – Superdrug B. B Cream Complete 6 in 1 Beauty Balm Light

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug’s B. B Cream which I picked up from the clearance shelf (£2!). I’m sure the Light shade has been discontinued, but I saw a couple of Medium B.B Creams at my local Superdrug the other day. I assume that the formula is the same for the light and medium shades, so a review might still be helpful for those who consider buying the medium bb cream.
B. B Cream 6 in 1 Beauty Balm Light
So, how’s the product? Well, this is the greasiest moisturiser I’ve ever had. The light shade isn’t much too dark for me, but this product is just too greasy. Because of this I’m using it on my dry patches only – this works well. There’s one more thing I need to mention – and that’s the product’s smell. It’s weird. Not funky or off. Just weird. I think the smell is extremely unlikeable.

All in all, I don’t like this moisturiser. It helps with my dry patches. But I wouldn’t use it anywhere else on my face. Anyhoo, have you tried this product? How do / did you like it? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for stopping by!

100% Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Chocolate Orange Self-Heating Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug’s Chocolate Orange Self-Heating Mask.

This face mask for normal to dry skin types promises to cleanse and hydrate skin.

This mask is almost like every other mask – you slather it on, leave it alone for about 15 minutes, and then you rinse it off.

I’ve now tried this mask, and I think it’s great.

I can see and feel that this mask cleanses my skin. It even tightens my pores. This awesome mask gives me instant results!

The chocolate orange fragrance is pleasant – it’s sweet and christmassey. 🙂

Superdrug Chocolate Orange Self-Heating Mask is available for 99p (and there’s usually a 3 for 2 offer as well). This mask is certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo), and it’s suitable for vegetarians.

Reducing My Oldies Stash – 100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Nourishing Crème Bath & Moisturising Crème Bath

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 Superdrug bath creams that I’ve had for quite some time – Superdrug Nourishing Crème Bath & Moisturising Crème Bath. These 500ml bath creams are £1.39 each, but they were on special, so I bought 2 for the price of 1. Now onto the reviews!

Superdrug Nourishing Crème Bath with shea extract and the fragrance of vanilla and almond is really nice. Whilst the bath cream isn’t nourishing, I’m happy that it isn’t drying. And the fragrance is sweet and cuddly. Good job, Superdrug!

Superdrug Moisturising Crème Bath with rose extract and the fragrance of shea butter and ginger is just as nice. Again, I don’t think this product is moisturising, but it doesn’t dry out my skin, so I can’t complain. The fragrance is lovely too. It’s a sweet rose fragrance. A candied rose, if that makes sense.

I haven’t seen any Superdrug own brand bath products the last time I swung by my local store. I’m not sure what’s going on, but I think they might introduce a new bottle design. Well, that’s what they did with the shower gels…

Anyhoo… Superdrug Nourishing Crème Bath & Moisturising Crème Bath are certified cruelty-free (they carry the Leaping Bunny logo) and suitable for vegans. Awesome stuff!

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Cocoa Butter & Vanilla Body Scrub

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug’s Cocoa Butter & Vanilla Body Scrub. I really like Superdrug’s Cocoa Butter & Vanilla Body Butter, so I thought I really should try the matching scrub. And when I saw it was on special (£2.45, half price offer), I bought it. 🙂 Now let me tell you if the scrub is any good…

I think this scrub is quite effective. It makes my skin feel super soft – almost polished! But don’t worry, this scrub isn’t too harsh, and it certainly doesn’t cut my skin. 🙂 The cocoa and vanilla fragrance is very nice. It’s sweet and cuddly, and it’ll be perfect for the colder seasons.

Superdrug’s Cocoa Butter & Vanilla Body Scrub is suitable for vegans. The product is also 100% cruelty-free. If you’d like to try the scrub, it’s available as 200ml for £4.99. But don’t miss out on deals – Superdrug does half price and BOGOF deals very often.

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Extracts Aloe Vera & Mango Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! I’ve only ever tried 1 Superdrug own brand shampoo and conditioner combo. And I wanted to give Superdrug’s Extracts collection another chance. So today I’m reviewing Superdrug Extracts Aloe Vera & Mango Shampoo & Conditioner. These products are aimed at people with oily or normal hair. Now let me tell you if these products are any good. 🙂

The shampoo is the definition of average. It cleanses my hair and scalp reasonably, and it smells quite pleasant (fresh and fruity). But the shampoo is also quite runny which isn’t the greatest quality in a shampoo… The conditioner is definitely better than the shampoo. It detangles my hair nicely without flattening it. I think the conditioner is actually quite alright.

I will continue to use these products until the conditioner is finished. And then I will pass the shampoo on to my husband. I don’t think I’ll buy these two hair care products again because there much better hair products out there.

Superdrug’s Extracts Aloe Vera & Mango Shampoo & Conditioner are vegan and cruelty-free. They’re BUAV-approved and they carry the Leaping Bunny logo. Superdrug’s Extracts shampoos and conditioners are usually £1.99 each for 400ml. I paid 89p each (promotion)!
