A Priming soufflé is something that’s completely new to me, I’d never heard of it and only found out about it when Superdrug kindly sent it me to review for their Blog Squad.
B. Is their own brand beauty and skincare line which is cruelty free and suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
I was expecting the product to have a scent but it doesn’t. It feels exactly like the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse foundation which is lovely and a little goes a long way.
With this primer you can use it alone for a matte finish or use it after moisturising, I personally prefer using it alone as I feel it makes my foundation look better and last longer .
It costs £9.99 for 20g which I feel is a little pricy for a Drugstore product. Whilst it’s a good product I don’t think I’d purchase this product due to the price.
Shower moisturisers are so underrated, I mean how many brands offer them? I discovered the Nivea one when I was pregnant and included it in my Pregnancy Skin Care Favourites. Now I’ve tried the Superdrug Vitamin E one I think I prefer this one out of the two.
First of all the scent is just like a regular moisturiser so nothing strong or off putting and it has a similar consistency. A little of this really does go a long way and it can be so easy to squirt too much out.
This product makes your skin super soft so you don’t need to apply a body butter or lotion after the shower and lets face it who can always be bothered to do that?
It’s recommended for normal to dry skin types and costs £2.99 for 250ml.
The Vitamin E range is great and has everything from micellar water to face scrubs and every other skincare product you might need.
As always it’s cruelty free, vegan and vegetarian friendly.
A good lip scrub is essential if you suffer with dry lips or if you want to prime your lips for a smoother applications of your lip products.
Today’s review is all about the B. Pro Gentle Lip Scrub. If you aren’t aware then B. is the cruelty free, vegan and vegetable friendly makeup and skincare brand by Superdrug.
This particular scrub has no flavour which is a shame as I love the E.L.F mint maniac scrub. On the first use I found it didn’t actually do anything, this is one of those products where you have to work away the top layer first.
I love that it’s in lipstick form again which makes it quick to use on the go, however, the product itself is pretty basic including its packaging. It’s not a bad product it’s just not a brilliant product either.
Currently it’s on offer for £3.33 instead of £4.99. I personally wont be picking up this scrub again as there’s other brands selling scrubs for a similar price including Barry M who have now launched new flavours.
Happy New Year everyone!
We’re kicking off this years posts with a stunning fan brush which is part of the Superdrug Fantasy Queen of Stars Collection.
Can we all take a moment to appreciate how stunning the handle is? This retails at £6.99 and is a large fan brush that’s perfect for highlighting or sweeping away excess powder.
Before I started using this brush I used the E.L.F highlighting brush (not fanned bristles) and I have to say the Fantasy brush applies highlighter much better and products do not need building up as much which is what I found with the other brush.
The bristles are really soft with synthetic hair and the only problem I found is sometimes you can’t see the powder on the brush due to the bright white bristles but it isn’t really a problem. As it’s a large brush I was expecting it to be too big to use but there really isn’t an issue.
There’s a wide range of brushes, false nails and hair products in the Fantasy range to choose from and I’ll definitely be picking up more of the brushes.
*This product was sent to me as part of the Superdrug Blog Squad team.
Hey guys it’s time for another face mask review, if you’re new to this blog then there’s plenty of face mask reviews to check out!
If you couldn’t tell already I absolutely love Superdrug own brand products with today’s post focusing on their brand new Coconut Mask which is part of the new We Love FaceMasks collection.
It has an interesting range to choose from with there being charcoal, blueberry jam, avocado and oats, coffee and finally kale; all with different benefits.
I went for coconut purely for the scent as who doesn’t love coconuts? It’s a creamy mask and comes in a re-sealable pot (75ml).
I love the simple packaging of this product as it looks very ethical and ties into it being vegan, vegetarian friendly and cruelty free.
The product left my skin feeling smooth after use, it smells great and was easy to apply with fingers but it was much easier to remove it with a cloth.
Currently retails for £3.29 but will be £4.99 in the future.
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.
