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 either 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.
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.
Tropical, exotic and creamy is one of many ways to describe the Coconut & Orchid Body Butter by Superdrug. I don’t know about you but coconut is one of my all-time favourite scents and I’m also an avid user of body butters. Having used many different brands over the years from Soap & Glory to The Body Shop, I will always come back to Superdrug.
You might be wondering why and how can an own brand product be any good? Well not only does this product smell incredible it’s also cruelty free and suitable for Vegans and Vegetarians.
It comes in a large 200ml pot which lasts for 12 months after opening and can I just say how cute is the packaging, it definitely stands out on the shelf.
The butter glides on the skin, doesn’t feel greasy and absorbs into the skin fast. At just £3.99 it’s inexpensive, often on offer either buy one get one free or it’s half price. There are many other great scents to choose from in the range including Cherry & Macadamia Nuts, Lotus Flower & Cherry Blossom and many more.
If you aren’t a body butter fan you can also get some of the scents in a body scrub and body lotion.
Looking for an exfoliator that’s all natural, cruelty free and suitable for Vegans and Vegetarians?
It may sound impossible but look no further, the Superdrug Vitamin E Gentle Oatmeal Exfoliator delivers all of that for £2.99. It’s packed with multivitamins A, B, E, F & H to replenish dry skin and protect it from premature ageing and environmental damage.
This scrub like the name suggests is gentle on the skin and doesn’t contain micro-beads like some of the leading brands on the market. My skin type is combination and I find that this exfoliator mattifies my skin without drying it out, it also leaves my face feeling clean, refreshed and smooth to the touch.
A little of this scrub goes a long way meaning the 100ml tube will last a while!
Whilst it may not smell the best due to containing oats and chestnuts and it does leave a slight mess in the sink, I would recommend it to anybody who is after a gentle scrub. With most scrubs you can’t really use them more than once a week due to the harshness of the micro-beads but with this one you can use it more often.
This is just one of many products in the Vitamin E range and is aimed at consumers with normal-dry skin.
Today’s post is about a product that every make-up user needs, a good brush cleaner. It’s really important to clean brushes in order to ensure there’s no bacteria or dust in the bristles because of course this would cause you to have skin problems and possible breakouts.
The amazing product that’s great for cleaning brushes is by Superdrug’s own brand B. The bottle comes with a pump spray and you only need to use 2-3 sprays a time depending on how much product is on the bristles.
It’s quick an easy to use and all you need to do is rub your brushes on some tissue to remove the makeup. The cleanser works both on synthetic and natural bristles, I was sceptical to begin with having recently purchased Real Technique brushes for the first time and I didn’t want to ruin them but the product works perfect on them.
For as little as £4.99 for the single bottle (125ml) and £4.00 for the bottle and muslin cloth (bizarre deal I know) you can clean your brushes without worry of ruining them.
-Suitable for Vegans and Vegetarians
