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!

Hair Repair Colour Shield Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about one of the two hair care combos that I’m using at the moment – Hair Repair Colour Shield Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner. These products promise to nourish and protect coloured hair. Are they any good?

I think Hair Repair Colour Shield Nourishing Shampoo is really good. It’s a creamy white shampoo. It’s clarifying, but it doesn’t feel harsh at all. The fragrance is very random, but all in all, this is a really good shampoo!

I’m equally happy with Hair Repair Colour Shield Nourishing Conditioner because it detangles my hair with ease. I’ve also noticed that it seems to give my hair a little extra volume which is always welcome! The fragrance is not very special, but I don’t mind this at all.

On the back of the bottles, it also says that these products are vegan and that they were not tested on animals. Good stuff! I would recommend these 2 hair products! Hair Repair Colour Shield Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 300ml each for £1 each (Poundland).

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!

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug B. Hydrated Leave On Face Mask, Superdrug B. Detoxed Clay Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 face masks – Superdrug’s B. Hydrated Leave On Face Mask and Superdrug’s B. Detoxed Clay Face Mask. These masks are cruelty-free (Leaping Bunny certified) and suitable for vegans.

Superdrug’s B. Hydrated Leave On Face Mask promises to lock in moisture, to improve skin comfort and to reduce the appearance of dry and flaky skin. You’re supposed to leave this mask on for 10-15 minutes, then massage in into your skin.

My experience with this mask was horrible. Within seconds of applying the mask, my face felt like it was on fire. It took me less than 10 seconds to jump up and to run to the bathroom. But even after I’ve washed this disgusting stuff off, my face felt terrible for hours, and some skin started to flake off over the next two days! 😲 This mask is a strong contender for Worst Product Of The Year!

B. Detoxed Clay Face Mask promises to absorb dirt and debris (yes, it really says “debris”), to refresh and brighten the skin, and to minimise pores. This mask is supposed to be applied to cleansed skin, left on to dry for about 15 minutes and then rinsed off.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I’m happy to report that it’s cleansing and refreshing. I think my pores looked a bit smaller for half a day too. The mask is not brightening, but I didn’t expect this anyway, so that’s OK. I might repurchase this mask!

If you’re interested, Superdrug’s B. Hydrated Leave On Face Mask and B. Detoxed Clay Face Mask are available as 10ml for £2.99 each. I picked these up when Superdrug ran a Buy 1 Get 1 Free promotion (which they do fairly frequently).

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Pink Clay Purifying Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Pink Clay Purifying Mask.

This face mask contains mineral-enriched rosa clay. It claims to draw out impurities and to absorb excess oils, and to leave skin feeling fresher and looking brighter. This sounds promising!

This mask is easy to use – apply it to cleansed skin, leave it on for 15-20 minutes, then wash off. The usual.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I like it. Whilst it didn’t brighten skin, I’m happy to confirm that this mask gave my skin a deep cleanse.

I also liked that the mask didn’t make my skin feel uncomfortable at any point.

Superdrug‘s Pink Clay Purifying Mask is available as 15ml for 99p, but Superdrug runs a 3 for 2 promotion on face masks most of the time. This face mask is also certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo), and it’s suitable for vegans.

100% Vegan – Original Source Hydrating Water Infusions Apple & Melon, Original Source Hydrating Water Infusions Grapefruit & Mint

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing 2 shower gels – Original Source Hydrating Water Infusions Apple & Melon and Original Source Hydrating Water Infusions Grapefruit & Mint. I bought these shower gels (and a few others) a few weeks ago when they were on special.

Original Source Hydrating Water Infusions Apple & Melon smells like ripe honeydew melon. I was hoping for a more refreshing fragrance, but all in all, this is a pleasant fruity shower gel. I also agree that the shower gel is mildly hydrating which is nice.

Original Source Hydrating Water Infusions Grapefruit & Mint feels mildly hydrating too. However, the mint and grapefruit fragrance is much better! This shower gel smells refreshing, herbal and green. I’m enjoying this one very much!

Original Source Hydrating Water Infusions Apple & Melon and Original Source Hydrating Water Infusions Grapefruit & Mint are available as 250ml. I paid 95p each (special offer, Tesco). These shower gels are approved by The Vegan Society!

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug B. Vitalised Vitamin Facial Spritz

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s B. Vitalised Vitamin Facial Spritz. This product contains caffeine, vitamin C and cucumber juice which promise to energise skin. In addition, the product claims to boots skin radiance for a well-rested and healthy glow.

I’ve used this facial spritz for the past 2 months (I finished it just a few days ago), and I was very happy with it.

Here’s how I used the spray:
1. As the first step in my post-cleansing skin care routine. I spray my face (4-5 sprays), then I apply my serum and then I massage the mix into my skin. This helps me hydrate my skin better, and it makes it easier to spread the serum all over my face and neck.

2. As the second step in my skin care routine. I always let my skin absorb the serum for a few minutes. Then I spray my face again (2-4 sprays) right before I use my day or night moisturiser on my face.

3. In conjunction with my foundation. I use Max Factor’s Pan Stik – which is the only foundation that doesn’t highlight eczema patches – no, it even makes them disappear! The Pan Stik is a heavy full-coverage foundation, but I spray my face again (2 sprays) after I’ve “drawn” the foundation on my face. Then I let it sit for about 20 seconds, and then I blend it with my fingers. I still get the same flawless coverage, but I also get a nice, dewy finish.

4. I also use the spray whenever I want a bit of extra hydration. It works on cleansed skin, as well as over moisturiser or makeup.

Based on my experience, I would recommend this product to everyone! If you have dry skin, you should definitely try a face mist – and you could give this one a try!

Superdrug‘s B. Vitalised Vitamin Facial Spritz. is available as 75ml for £8.99 (it used to be £7.99 but Superdrug increased the prices on their own brand products). I paid £3.89 (half price offer).  This products is also suitable for vegans, and it’s certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo)!
