Superdrug has quickly overtaken Boots as my favourite place to shop for skincare, and it’s all down to their own brands. My favourite products at the moment are all affordable, cruelty free, vegan and effective, what’s not to like?
As I mentioned in my current favourites from The Ordinary I’m attempting to switch to cruelty free, but to also find products that work which are a bit more budget friendly, I have a wedding to save for after all! I’ll be honest, for a while I avoided own brands because I naively assumed they wouldn’t be any good or something. Maybe it’s because the packaging isn’t as pretty as some of the big brands? Whatever the reason, that was silly of me and now I’m fully embracing them.
I often struggle with eye creams as although my skin isn’t generally that sensitive, lots of the products I’ve tried made the skin around my eyes sting a little. I’d actually pretty much given up on looking for one I could use. I picked this up on a bit of a whim as it was in a 3 for 3 deal I think, but I’m so glad I did as I love it. Firstly it doesn’t sting me which is good, but it’s actually having an effect on my very dark and puffy under eyes which I’m delighted with.
I love cleansers. Is that odd? I don’t mind if it is to be honest, there’s something really therapeutic about double cleansing my face before I go to bed. This one is lovely. It’s very gentle and creamy while doing a great job of taking my makeup off. It doesn’t dry my skin out, and my face has generally been much calmer since I started using this consistently. I’m on my third bottle now and can’t imagine not repurchasing.
See, told you I love cleansers. I like everything I’ve tried from the Naturally Radiant range, but this is my stand out product. It’s designed to cleanse and gently exfoliate your skin and since I’ve been using it my skin is much clearer but brighter too.
This is a little more expensive, but every time I’ve bought it I’ve managed to get it in some kind of deal, which helps. It’s specifically designed for dehydrated skin and this combined with The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid are saving my skin as we go into autumn. I’m finally getting rid of the dehydration lines on my forehead and my foundation doesn’t go as patchy anymore.
Honestly if I see something with hyaluronic acid in at the moment I end up buying it, such is my dislike of having dry skin. I love a facial spritz and this one is nice and light, it does a good job of refreshing your face and I’ve also tried it over make-up and it’s worked well.
Have you tried anything from the various Superdrug own brands? What do you recommend I try next?
