There’s nothing I love more than randomly browsing the shelves of Superdrug in search for the latest makeup and skincare release, gimmick or trend. It’s even better when Penny’s asleep in her pram so she doesn’t try to grab everything off the shelves; like mother, like daughter. Most of my purchases are usually influenced by the reviews of my favourite beauty bloggers. I know that I can 100% trust the opinions of these ladies. Their recommendations can usually be found scribbled inside the notebook I keep in my handbag for when I have the opportunity to hit the shops. Here’s a quick run down of all the goodies that have made their way into my basket recently…
Product: Optimum PhytoGlyc-Age Day Cream
Blog: Allure La Vie
Superdrug Says: “With advanced PhytoGlyc-Age technology, fine lines and wrinkles become noticeably less visible over time, as skins firmness and elasticity is increased. Signs of fatigue such as dark circles and dull skin tone are also diminished, unveiling a well-rested, healthier and younger-looking complexion…”
Superdrug’s own brand skincare collection is incredibly underrated. Their Hot Cloth Cleanser for example (which I am currently in the middle of dedicating a whole post to) is a dupe of the iconic Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser. The word ‘dupe’ is often thrown around loosely but, honestly, it’s basically the exact same thing. Just read the ingredients list if you don’t believe me. As soon as I read Antonia’s review I knew I had to try this.

Product: Optimum Skin Illuminating Glycolic Overnight Peel
Superdrug Says: “With a blend of PhytoCellTec Solar Vitis and Vivillume, infused with a Glycolic Acid Complex, the light-weight formula refines, firms and plumps the skin, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles while helping to improve skin tone for a more radiant, younger-looking complexion.”
If I have no money, Gemma is usually the culprit! I can’t tell you how many products I’ve bought over the years thanks to Gemma’s detailed and honest reviews. She really is my go-to beauty guru so picking this up was a no-brainer. Plus, at the time of writing this post, Superdrug were running a Buy 1 Get 1 Free offer, so I picked up both of these products for only £12.99!

Product: L’Oreal Pure Clay Blemish Rescue Mask
Blog: Jinksy Beauty
Superdrug Says: “Unclogs blackheads and leaves the skin pure and fresh without drying it out. Ideal for spots/blemish prone skin.”
To be fair, Karen hasn’t even got around to fully reviewing this but as soon as I saw them on her Twitter feed I knew I had to try them. Thanks to Karen I have also ordered a few products from the new Zoella Jelly & Gelato collection which should be arriving any day.

Product: Colab Dry Shampoo
Blog: The Sunday Girl
Superdrug Says: “COLAB’s Original fragrance Dry Shampoo gives hair an instant wow-factor with a ‘Too cool for School’ vibe and an effortlessly cool, bergamot and rose scent.”
I was looking online for a dry shampoo that doesn’t leave any white residue and this review from 2015 popped up. I dye my hair monthly to keep my red as vibrant as possible and I find that powdery dry shampoos leave a coating that makes my colour look dull. I have been a loyal customer of Batiste for years but it was time for a change. Also, how beautiful is the new packaging?
