100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Vitamin C Detox Skincare Revitalising Jam Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Vitamin C Detox Skincare Revitalising Jam Face Mask. This face mask contains sugar, orange peel, goji berry and kakadu plum, and it promises to exfoliate, to purify and to brighten the skin.

How does it work? Superdrug recommends you apply a thin layer to your face. Leave the mask on for 5-10 minutes, then splash some water onto your skin and massage the product all over your face in circular motions.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s fun to use! It’s really sticky – like jam indeed. It has a bit of a warming effect which I found unusual but not bad at all. The sugar can be seen and felt – it acts as an exfoliant – not when you apply the mask, but once you massage the product all over your face before you wash it off.

I’m not sure if the mask has an actual brightening effect, but based on my experience, I would recommend it. If you’re interested, Superdrug Vitamin C Detox Skincare Revitalising Jam Face Mask is available as 75ml for £4.99. I bought it alongside another product from the same product range when Superdrug ran a Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price promotion. Also, this product is vegan and certified cruelty-free. It carries the Leaping Bunny! 😍

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Smoothing All Over Body Cream With Acacia Collagen

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Smoothing All Over Body Cream With Acacia Collagen. This body cream is aimed at people with mature or dry skin, and it promises to replenish and to hydrate the skin. Sounds great! What else sounds great? This product is certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo), and it’s suitable for vegans! 😍 Onto the review!

I’ve been using this body cream for about 4 weeks now, and I love it! The formula is amazing – it’s very hydrating, but it feels so light and the cream is absorbed in no time. It makes my skin feel amazing, and it’s perfect for warmer summer days! The fragrance is outstanding too. It’s sweet, floral, powdery and dreamy – it reminds me a bit of Superdrug’s limited edition moonstone extract body cream from 2019.

All in all, this is a great body cream! Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Smoothing All Over Body Cream With Acacia Collagen is available as 300ml for £4.99. I bought it (and another body cream) when Superdrug ran a Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price promotion.

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Body Wash, Body Lotion, Shower Foam & Shower Jelly

Hi there! Today’s post is about a bunch of body products – Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Body Wash, Body Lotion, Shower Foam & Shower Jelly. I bought these products because they’re supposed to match the fragrance of Superdrug’s Layering Lab Blossom Body Mist which is a perfect dupe for Mugler’s Alien fragrance. Let’s see if the body products are any good!

Let’s start with Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Body Wash which is actually the last Blossom products I tried. I think this is a basic shower gel. I hate the bottle and the formula. It takes a lot of time and effort to squeeze the shower gel out of the tube. I don’t even understand what the problem is… with respect to the fragrance… it’s pretty random, and it bears no resemblance to Mugler’s Alien fragrance!

Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Body Lotion is OK. What I like about it is that it’s quick and easy to massage into the skin, and that it doesn’t leave a sticky film on the skin. However, the fragrance is not my favourite – it’s a sharp artificial scent. Fortunately, it evaporates quickly. No resemblance to Mugler’s Alien.

Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Shower Foam (150ml) was the first product of this bunch that I tried. The foam is fun to use, but it doesn’t feel very cleansing. And the fragrance is best described as negligible. It hardly smells of anything, and the little fragrance there is… well, it’s not even nice. No resemblance to Mugler’s Alien.

Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Shower Jelly (200ml) is an odd product. I’ve never used a shower jelly, so I didn’t know what to expect. To make a long story short… I didn’t like the formula. The jelly is quite stiff, and it takes ages to transform it into a lather. Some patches of jelly remained jelly. It was impossible to lather them up. If all shower jellies are like this, I’ll be happy to never touch one again. With respect to the fragrance… it’s a random sharp fragrance. It’s not as bad as the shower foam or the body lotion, but also no resemblance to Mugler’s Alien.

All in all, I wouldn’t buy these products again. Based on the poor quality of these products, I won’t be trying any other shower, bath or body care product from the Layering Lab collection, regardless of the fragrance. On a positive note, these products are 100% vegan and cruelty-free, they’re even certified by BUAV – they carry the Leaping Bunny logo! If you’re interested, these products start at £3.99, and Superdrug usually runs some kind of offer on the Layering Lab products. I bought these when they were on Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price, so just under £12 for these 4 products. Still, a total waste of money in my book – I’m really struggling to finish these products. I’m forcing myself to keep using them!

100% Cruelty-Free – Simple Ultra Calming Sheet Mask With Hemp Seed Oil

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Simple Ultra Calming Sheet Mask With Hemp Seed Oil. This sheet mask also contains omegas 3, 6 and 9, as well as vitamin E, sodium hyaluronate and retinyl palmitate! It promises to calm skin dryness and to replenish lost nutrients. And it’s aimed at people with stressed and sensitive skin.

This is a regular sheet mask. Cleanse your face before you put the sheet mask on. Leave it on for 15 minutes, then massage the excess serum into your skin.

I’ve given this sheet mask a try, and I think it’s quite good. I found it hydrating, mildly refreshing and calming as well. The mask was on the stickier end, and I had to break up the sticky film with face mist and a light moisturiser. However, this was the only negative bit, and the mask was good otherwise.

What else? This mask is free from artificial colour or perfume, it doesn’t contain harsh chemicals, mineral oils or animal products. On the back of the pack it says the mask is vegan, and it’s certified cruelty-free by PeTA! If you’re interested, Simple Ultra Calming Sheet Mask With Hemp Seed Oil is available as a single use 21ml sheet mask for £2.99. I paid £1.49 (half price offer at Boots).

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Original Moisturising Shower Cream

Hi there! Happy Wednesday! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Original Moisturising Shower Cream.

This shower cream promises a rich lather that gently cleanses the skin without drying it out. It also claims to leave skin feeling softer.

I’ve been using this shower gel on and off for 3 weeks now, and I’m happy to report that I’m enjoying it.

The fragrance could be stronger – it’s Superdrug’s iconic Vitamin E fragrance after all. But apart from this, I have no reason to complain.

This shower cream feels amazing on my skin, and I can confirm that it’s not drying at all. Great stuff!

Now I wouldn’t say that this shower cream is actually moisturising, but I do feel comfortable skipping my regular body lotion or cream every once in a while when I use this shower cream.

Based on my experience, I would recommend this shower cream. I know I’ll buy it again, and I’m very interested in trying the other fragrances from this line!

Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Original Moisturising Shower Cream is available as 250ml for £2.29. I think I paid £1.20 each (half price offer), but Superdrug also does Buy One Get One Free every now and then on these products. Also – this product is suitable for vegans, and it’s certified cruelty-free as it carries the Leaping Bunny logo!

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Lavender

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Lavender. This body cream is meant to be used before bedtime as it promises to hydrate your skin while you sleep.

In addition to vitamin E and lavender, it also contains shea butter, lactic acid (!), retinyl palmitate (!), and horse chestnut extract. This body cream is certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo), and it’s suitable for vegans.

I’ve been using this body cream on and off for almost 3 weeks now, and I think it’s very good. It’s richer than the “regular” vitamin E body cream, and feels like it’s sitting on the skin for a bit before it’s absorbed. Based on this, I’d agree that this body cream is more suitable for use before bedtime, especially during the colder months.

The lavender scent is quite strong, so you should like or love lavender, otherwise you won’t get much joy from this body cream. Luckily, I love lavender, so I’m very happy with my purchase!

If you’re interested, Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Lavender is available as 300ml for £4.99. I bought it (and another body cream from this range) when Superdrug ran a Buy 1 Get 1 Half Price promotion in December.

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Zatik Rosehip & Black Seed Organic Oil Serum

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Zatik Rosehip & Black Seed Organic Oil Serum which is aimed at people with dry and mature skin. This oil serum promises intense hydration for soft and radiant skin.

This serum oil is actually an oil blend – it contains a number of certified organic oils such as black seed, rosehip, jojoba, argan, etc. and vitamin E. On the pack it reads that these oils are rich in vitamin C, and that the oil blend is lightweight. People with dry skin are supposed to use the oil twice daily, all other skin types just in the morning.

I’ve been using this facial oil on and off for a over a month now, and I think it’s amazing. It works absolute wonders for dry skin! 😍 And the natural ingredients are just wow!

Having said this, the oil is not lightweight at all – it’s incredibly rich, and if I use it every day, my skin will break out – I know because this happened to me within a week of using this product. I now use it 3-4 times a week, and this is the perfect dose for glowing skin. (It is for me, it might be different for you.)

All in all, I love this product, and I will continue to use it. And based on my experience, I’d recommend it to everyone with dry skin. Just check the label to make sure you’re not allergic to any of the ingredients.

Zatik Rosehip & Black Seed Organic Oil Serum is available as 30ml. I paid £5.99 (TK Maxx). This product is certified cruelty-free. It carries the Leaping Bunny logo!

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Sukin Nourishing Chia Seed Oil & Sukin Foaming Facial Cleanser

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 skin care products that I’m using at the moment – Sukin Nourishing Chia Seed Oil & Sukin Foaming Facial Cleanser. I bought a set containing these 2 products for £7.99 a little while ago – this was a total bargain because the 25ml chia seed oil alone was £14.95 back then. Thanks, TK Maxx!

Now let’s look at the products! Sukin Nourishing Chia Seed Oil for all skin types is rich in omega 3 and 6, amino acids, antioxidants and phytonutrients. Sukin recommends the oil be applied to the face once or twice a day. However, they also recommend patch testing before you start using this product – I think this is generally the right thing to do!

I’ve used this facial oil since the beginning of March, and I think it’s good but not great. This is a heavy oil that isn’t easy to spread. I use it in conjunction with a face mist, and this helps a lot! I do agree that the oil is nourishing, and it helps boost my current night cream. But I don’t like the strong fragrance (which is 100% natural), so I wouldn’t buy another chia seed oil.

I’ve been using Sukin’s Foaming Facial Cleanser since the beginning of the month, and I think it’s nice. I use this clear gel cleanser with a konjac sponge in the morning, and even though it doesn’t have SLS, it lathers up well. It seems to remove dirt effectively without drying out my skin. And despite it containing a number of oils, it doesn’t make my skin oily.

What else? This cleanser is bursting with natural ingredients – aloe vera, chamomile, tea tree, witch hazel, evening primrose, rosehip, avocado, wheat germ, sesame, lavender, etc. Good stuff! If you’re interested, Sukin Foaming Facial Cleanser is available as 125ml for £7.95.

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Refreshing Toning Mist

upload-3Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Vitamin E Skin Care Hydrating Mist. This product used to be called Refreshing Toning Mist (as you can see in the photo), but the name has been changed recently.

Anyhoo… this product contains vitamin E as well as vitamins A, B, F and H which, together with horse chestnut extract, promise to care for dry skin. The product also claims that its antioxidant complex protects skin from environmental damage and that it prevents premature skin aging.

I’ve been using this face mist since January, and I love it! I use it twice a day, right after I’ve cleansed my face, and immediately before I apply my serum.

Sometimes I also spray my face again right before I apply my moisturiser or a facial oil. And I also use it after I’ve put on my make-up, although in this case I spray the product into the air and let it fall on my face. I do this because otherwise I’d end up with wet patches on my face (this is because of the spray nozzle…)

All in all, this face mist is truly outstanding! It’s definitely one of the best face mists I’ve ever tried. It’s super hydrating, and it helps me stay on top of my winter skin. Based on my experience, I’d recommend it to everyone, especially to those with dry skin!

Superdrug‘s Vitamin E Skin Care Hydrating Mist is available as 150ml for £3.49. This product is 100% vegan and cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo). Superdrug usually runs a Buy 1 Get 1 Half Price promotion on their Vitamin E products which makes the product even better value!

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Vitamin C Detox Skin Care Refreshing Cleansing Pads

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Vitamin C Detox Skin Care Refreshing Cleansing Pads with goji berry and kakadu plum extracts. These pads promise to cleanse skin and to remove impurities, excess oil and makeup – including mascara.

They also claim to leave skin feeling softer, smoother and visibly brighter. I’ve been using these pads on and off for over a month now, and here’s what I think!

I’m enjoying these cleansing pads very much! I use them instead of a toner, and I’m happy to report that they’re effective at removing all sorts of gunk, and that they’re gentle enough to be used around the eyes (which was expected since they claim to remove mascara).

These pads aren’t as powerful as Superdrug’s Glycolic Acid Pads, but these pads are perfect if you have sensitive or delicate skin that doesn’t tolerate AHAs, BHAs and the likes, or if you want an all-in-one pad that you can use around your eyes.

Superdrug‘s Vitamin C Detox Skin Care Refreshing Cleansing Pads (which are vegan and certified cruelty-free) are available for £4.99 (for 60 pads), and most of the time there’s also a Buy 1 Get 1 Half Price offer on Superdrug’s Vitamin C products!
