Hands up who loves fragrance! I certainly do so I was pleased to receive the Layering Lab Body Mists as part of the Superdrug Blog Squad. I received mine in the scents Oriental and Cocoon.
The idea of the mists is that you can choose two from the collection (six available scents) and layer them together to create a unique scent or you can wear them individually which I think is a great concept.
Oriental is my favourite of the two and contains the notes spice, berries and floral it also smells like Diesel Loverdose Tattoo! Cocoon has jasmine, vanilla and musk and I was less keen on this scent but purely because I’m not a vanilla fan.
I’ve never really been a body mist fan but I can honestly say I’ve been converted and I can’t wait to try out the rest of the range! At 100ml they are perfectly handbag sized and I think the simplistic packaging is so cute.
As always with Superdrug own brands it’s cruelty free and suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
Welcome back to the final instalment of the Wonder Woman lipstick mini series, these lipsticks were part of the Wilkinson Sword razor campaign to celebrate the release of the new Wonder Woman film.
Wonder is the shade I was absolutely dying to get my hands on out of the four piece collection, unfortunately I only managed to get three of the shades so my collection isn’t complete!
Wonder is a stunning pink nude shade and I absolutely love any kind of nude lipstick so I had to get my hands on this one. Sorry for the picture being not very good but I assure you it is an amazing colour. I believe the promotion is still running so I’d definitely recommend grabbing this shade if you can.
This is my mini collection and as you can see there’s different shades to cater to each individual taste, we have the deep red shade Wisdom and Power is a classic red.
I love these lipsticks, the shades are pigmented and they aren’t drying at all which is always a bonus and cruelty free!
Ditch the wipes in favour of the B. Pure Micellar Water. It cleanes, tones and refreshes skin whilst gently removing make up.
It’s great for all skin types including very sensitive skin and best of all you can use it on Eye make up!
I’ve tried Micellar waters and face wipes in the past which have made my eyes feel sore afterwards and my skin isn’t even that sensitive but this product is great. One problem I did find with removing eye make up is that for eyeliner it did transfer it under my eye more so than removing it.
For £4.49 you get a large 400ml bottle that’s sure to last a while and currently B. Skincare is buy one get one free so why not stock up!
*Dermatologically & Ophthalmically Approved
*Suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians
Today’s post focusses on yet another Superdrug product, I know I’m sorry but I really do love their own brand! Not only are they affordable but they are also cruelty free whilst being suitable for Vegans and Vegetarians.
A firm favourite of mine lately is the Coconut Water shampoo and conditioner and if you follow my blog then you’ll know I purchased the hair masque in this range quite a while ago.
First of all this range smells amazing! It has a lovely tropical scent which isn’t overpowering. The shampoo and conditioner are recommended for normal, dry or damaged and claims to hydrate it whilst leaving hair looking all fab and shiny. My hair I’d say is normal but with dry ends and some frizz.
After using this product religiously I can tell you my hair is always left feeling incredibly soft, I would say as well that it looks shiny but it’s not overly glossy and it reduces the frizz which we all know is a massive bonus.
It’s also really easy to wash out, I know that sounds silly but some shampoos I’ve tried in the past have just felt oily and take time to remove fully. A little really does go a long way and with the bottles being 400ml each they will last a long time.
All the items in this range cost £3.99 and are currently on offer 2 for £6.
Feeling rough and need a quick way to refresh your under eyes? If you suffer with puffy eyes and dark circles then this might be the product for you!
Within 15 minutes these hydrogel patches will stimulate the skin with sea algae and caffeine making you feel more awake, refreshed and your under eye area will be moisturised in order to hide fatigue and puffiness.
To use the patches you simply take them out of the casing, peel back the one side whilst positioning on the under eye and then removing the final piece of backing to fully reveal the gel patch.
Whilst I don’t tend to suffer with puffiness I do get dark circles and find that after using these patches for 15 minutes my skin does look much brighter and feels slightly tighter.
A top tip on the sachet is to keep them in the fridge before use.
You get one set per sachet and they can only be used once but cost just £1.49.
As always Superdrug products are cruelty free and suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
Get festival ready with the Pick & Mix Instant colour sprays by Superdrug. Fancy something that lasts longer? Then why not pick a shade from the permenant and semi-permanent collection.
As part of the Superdrug Blog Squad I was kindly sent three of the sprays to test and as always an honest review will be given.
I’ll start with the my least favourite of the bunch and that is the grey colour, I really wanted to like this but on my gingery brown hair it just didn’t turn out very well.
The left photo shows what it’s like with a thin layer of the product and the right is a build up of the product and as you can see from my top it goes everywhere! I feel this shade would work much better in blonde hair or in small areas of dark hair.
I got on so much better with the blue and purple shade which I think look stunning when layered together, if you have long hair like me though you will need quite a few cans to cover your hair entirely. These colours would be great for Mermaid/unicorn hair!
In order to set the colours you will need to use hairspray and to remove the colour you can brush it out or wash it away.
Please not the bright colours (blue and purple) will stain your hands but easily washes off.
There are more colours in the range and would be great for parties and festivals!
Rose gold and pastel colours is a trend that’s here to stay and Superdrug has taken this on board to create a new range of hair products. The Pick & Mix features semi-permanent and permanent dyes as well as hair chalk sprays in a range of fabulous colours.
As part of a small blog squad team for Superdrug I was kindly sent the permanent Rose Gold hair dye to try out. The box colour is a beautiful ‘candy floss’ style pink which I feel if you have blonde hair then you will be able to achieve this. I had brown hair with dark blonde highlights so I didn’t really expect the colour to take to my hair and to my surprise I was left with a nice darker pink colour!
I didn’t read the box properly (rookie mistake) so I didn’t read that the dye contains hydrogen peroxide so some of my brown roots also went a pinky colour but I honestly didn’t mind this. I only used one box so if you have brown hair you can still achieve a pink look but it may take a couple of boxes to completely cover your hair.
I like this dye and I would recommend trying the range if you fancy a new hair colour, however, I did find in comparison to some other brands that this one did have a strong scent but that could have been the bleach!
A day after dying my hair it went a lighter peachy colour which was lovely and actually inspired me to try the Copper Gold colour from the collection. I’ll do another blog post for that dye but again it had peroxide in it and now my brown roots are all gone!
Unfortunately I can’t remember the exact price but it was around £3.50 and as usual with Superdrug it is 100% cruelty free and suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
Contour, highlight and add a pop of colour to your face in one handy sculpting kit presented by Rimmel London as part of the Kate Moss collection. There are currently two shades to choose from 002 Coral Glow and 003 Golden Bronze. As far as I’m aware there is not a 001 which is odd to me but I could be wrong (let me know in the comments!). This retails for £6.99.
As you can see it’s pretty standard packaging with a window to show off the colours, it’s a decent size for travel, however, it doesn’t contain a brush or mirrors. I like to use the PS Angled Brush from Primark for the contour shade.
If you are new to contouring then it makes a great starter palette, if however, you use contour a lot then it probably isn’t for you if I’m being honest due to the lack of shade options.
The powders can easily be built up but you do have to tap a lot of the excess off of your brush, for lack of a better word it is quite ‘powdery’ and as you tap your brush in the palette you can see it starting to come away in the air.
I love the blush colour and find that the contour shade works well for me, its on the warm side so if you use cool toned highlighters then again this isn’t for you. The highlighter is a nice golden shade but personally I think there’s better highlighters on the market.
Rimmel London are against animal testing but I think they’re sold in China where animal testing still takes place so it depends on your personal preferences whether or not you would use this palette.
Bring out your inner Wonder Woman with Wilkinson Sword!
If you’ve seen my previous post then you’ll know I received the shade Power with the purchase of the Wilkinson Sword Intuition razor. Today’s post is all about the shade Wisdom.
Whilst Wisdom wasn’t my first choice (I’d picked Wonder) the promotion allowed you to select two options out of all four shades Wonder, Wisdom, Power and Grace.
The shade is a gorgeous deep red, whilst it glides on the lips it does take a few applications to get an even colour with better pigment and just like Power it does transfer easily.
There’s a subtle smell of Shea Butter which acts as the moisturising property in the lipstick and makes it comfortable to wear on the lips.
The lipstick is cruelty free and a list of ingredients can also be found on the Wilkinson Sword website.
e.l.f (eyes. lips. face) has recently re-launched back in the UK and is available to buy from Superdrug, I’ve always wanted to try this brand in the past and never got around to doing so. The first product I’ve decided to try is the Mint Maniac Lip Exfoliator or Scrub, whichever you prefer to call it.
“Gently exfoliate lips to remove dry, chapped skin with our Lip Exfoliator! A sweet sugar and smoothing sensation, infused with Vitamin E, Shea Butter, Avocado, Grape and Jojoba Oils to nourish and protect. This Lip Exfoliator treats and smoothes lips for a conditioned and revitalized feel.” (eyeslipsface.co.uk)
Firstly the exfoliator comes in three different scents/flavours; Mint Maniac, Sweet Cherry and Clear. (There’s a few more choices on the official website) They cost £4.50 each and come in the sleek packaging shown above. One negative about the packaging is it’s quite bulky for the actual product and doesn’t seem overly necessary.
The exfoliator is easy to use due to its lipstick shape, just dampen your lips, scrub in circular motions and wipe away the excess product before applying a balm. It does have a minty tingle without being overpowering at the same time and tastes quite nice!
The scrub itself isn’t harsh which is always a bonus, I found it worked well from the first use and I would recommend it if you get dry lips or apply lip products on a regular basis. For the tiny price tag of £4.50 you cant really go wrong with it.
e.l.f cosmetics are hypoallergenic and cruelty free!
