Superdrug Skincare Review
With autumn fast approaching, my skin is definitely on the dryer side. Having tried out Superdrug’s Vitamin E SPF 15 Moisturising Day Cream (and really enjoyed it), I thought I’d give a few other bits from the range a go, and boy have I found some treasures.
Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser
This is by far the cheapest hot cloth cleanser on the market, at a fantastic £4.99. I get on really well with hot cloth cleansers – essentially because I’m lazy and don’t like to use both a cleanser and make-up remover, but also because it really nourishes and gives your skin that extra kick of moisture it needs in the colder months. I’ve tried No. 7’s Hot Cloth Cleanser which is also nice, as well as the classic Liz Earle’s Cleanse and Polish – neither of which I can speak negatively of – however you just can’t argue with Superdrug’s price, particularly when the product is lovely. It takes my make-up off really easily, and leaves it feeling squeaky clean and nourished. Lovely.
Vitamin E Dual Phase Cleansing Oil
Sometimes after cleansing my face I feel there’s perhaps a few bits I’ve missed, and a double cleanse is never a bad thing. Using this cleansing oil as a second step gives the extra nourishment of an oil while focusing on particular areas that need an extra cleanse, such as the t-zone. But please be aware, your eyes will not be a fan of this, as I found the first time I tried it and had to wash out my poor stingy eyes. But on the skin? Works a dream.
Vitamin E Toning Facial Mist
Facial Mists/Toners are products I don’t often feel are worth the hype, as there aren’t instant effects and I usually tend to get a direct spray to the eye-ball (noticing a trend here?). However, since loving the Lush Tea-tree Toner, I felt that I’ve perhaps misjudged them, so added this to my collection and it is lovely. Yes, definitely a princess product that is difficult to justify if you’re in a rush, but it definitely wakes you up, and gives the feeling that your skin is now sealed with moisture.
Vitamin E SPF 15 Moisturising Day Cream
As mentioned previously, the day cream in this range was the first product I used, and it continues to impress. Not only does it moisturize without leaving your skin feeling greasy and tacky, but it also has SPF 15, a lovely little extra that means your skin is protected for the day without having to worry about sun-cream.
All in all, a lovely, affordable range that far excels the price you pay. Each of these products recommend you use them in conjunction with others from the collection to see their full potential, and while I normally believe this to be merely a clever marketing ploy,these products really do work beautifully together. I’m really interested in giving the Vitamin E Serum a go, as well as the Shower Moisturizer. Please leave a comment if you’ve tried any of the products I’ve mentioned, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
