Hi guys, I was recently sent a skincare package by Superdrug to review for their Blog Squad. The We Love range has recently expanded and I was excited to receive the pink grapefruit jelly scrub.
I have never used a jelly scrub before but I know that Lush has jelly bath products so maybe Superdrug is trying to appeal to Lush consumers?
First of all this scrub smells amazing! It isn’t too overpowering and offers a gentle scrub which can be used more than once a week, it is a weird consistency but I soon got used to it. If you prefer more of an exfoliating scrub then I wouldn’t recommend this as it isn’t like an ordinary body scrub. I really like this product and I will be repurchasing it when it runs out. It’s super affordable at £4.99 for 200ml and there is a wide range of scents and other skincare bits in this range. The only negative I have is the pot is quite thin plastic so I feel it could crack easily if dropped. As always with Superdrugs own brand it is vegan friendly and cruelty free. #SuperdrugBlogSquad
I Heart Revolution has branched out into bath and skincare as well as releasing new makeup products every other week.
I ordered three of the bath bomb fizzers when they were first released and have just got around to testing out the Mermaid Splash one.
The bath bombs retail for £3 each and come in a range of different scents. The Mermaid Splash fizzer is supposed to have an ‘aquatic’ scent but I didn’t really notice much of a scent to it.
For the price I wasn’t expecting Lush quality but I was disappointed that it didn’t change the water a different colour like it says it does and the glitter was minimal and instantly clung to the side of the bath.
Personally I feel like I Heart Revolution have missed the mark with their bath products as their makeup is always great quality.
Revolution has recently launched its Halloween 2018 collection and I for one could not wait to pick up some pieces.
Beautiful Darkness retails for £6 and features a mixture of gorgeous shimmers and mattes. Can we all take a moment to appreciate the spooky packaging?
Something ‘new’ I’ve noticed about the layout of this palette is the larger pans for the transition and matte highlighter shade which a lot of people will appreciate.
Out of 12 shades there are only 4 shimmers but they are absolutely stunning when applied with your finger, I tried with a wet brush but it didn’t pay off as nicely.
My absolute favourite shade is Dead Rose, my swatches don’t do this palette justice but it is a gorgeous Red shimmer. Poison is also a gorgeous green/brown shimmer whereas Corrupted is a beautiful gold that needs building up.
The back of the box on my palette did have a few spelling mistakes for the shade names but that isn’t really an issue for me and might have been from a bad batch but it really doesn’t effect the palette overall.
As always the shadows are pigmented, buildable and had no fallout for me.
This palette is cruelty free, Vegan friendly and currently 3 for 2 on Superdrug.
If you read my May Favourites post then you’ll know that I’ve been loving the Delicious Destinations body mists. The body mists come in a range of different scents and retail for £3.99 for 100ml (currently £1.98 on offer).
“Take a walk through the jungle where wild exotic fruit notes are tangled with tropical & enticing oriental floral tones”
For a 30ml of Gucci Bamboo you’re looking at around £49, for a 100ml of Jungle its around £3.99 at most.
Funnily enough there are no notes of kiwi or palm leaf in Gucci Bamboo which I find strange so they may share other notes not mentioned on the Jungle bottle but to me personally they smell so similar and I’d much rather pay £1.98/£3.99 instead of splashing out £50.
A great thing about the body mist is that it does tend to last well on clothes and is small enough to keep in your bag to spritz throughout the day, as it is cheap anyway it does not matter how often it gets used where as I don’t tend to overspray Gucci.
Does anybody else think its a good match?
Let me know any dupes you know of in the comments below! 🙂
The Revolution Pro Mischief Mattes palette is packed full of colour for fun bold looks. It retails for £8 and contains 18 shades, I was kindly sent one to review for the Superdrug Blog Squad.First of all I have to admit this is not a palette I would have chosen for myself due to the bold colours and the fact it’s all mattes as I prefer warm tones and shimmer.
Some of the colours aren’t as bold as I thought they would be but they do build up nicely and blend easily. They might apply better with an eyeshadow primer as a few colours weren’t looking the best after a full day of wear.
This palette would be great for a makeup kit, festival, holiday or even for a bold everyday look. I love that the shade names are now printed on the palette, it’s also cruelty free and suitable for vegans!
Hey everyone today’s post is another item from Revolution Pro which was kindly sent to me for the Superdrug Blog Squad. The Blur Stick Universal Face Primer is absolutely massive so it is difficult to get coverage all over the face so I tend to rub it on my fingers to be able to apply it to my nose etc…
It doesn’t come out with a colour on the face even though it looks like a foundation shade, it didmake my face feel smooth but I personally prefer other primers with a gel like/moisturising consistency. Whilst it didn’t fully eliminate my pores it did reduce them and gave my base a matte finish so if you prefer a more dewy look then this primer is not for you. Personally I wouldn’t re-purchase this primer when it runs out as I feel there are better ones out there which are cheaper and easier to apply.
This primer is 30g and retails for £10, it is also vegan is cruelty free.
