Superdrug online hauling!

So, after 'rediscovering' Superdrug (after being a Boots only shopper) I decided to buy some products online as my local store doesn't carry very much at all.....not only was the website easy to navigate, the shipping cost was free (when you spend over £10), the items were well packaged, delivery was super fast, and I received two free samples (I was not expecting this!).

Superdrug online haul
L-R: Lady Gaga Fame EDP 30ml, Herbal Essence's Hello Hydration shampoo, Bee Strong shampoo and Bee Strong rinse out conditioning mask, Schwarzkopf Color Mask hair dye in shade 586 Warm Mahogany, Sleek Face Form (bronzer, highlighter and blush) in shade fair, Anelco Beer shampoo and coditioner 2-in1 (didn't this used to be called Linco Beer??), Superdrug's own brand Superberry exfoliating mud mask, Rio Deluxe Soft Wax, and the two free samples of Ghost Eclipse EDT 2ml and Garnier Ultimate Blends The Sleek Perfecter Oil (with pure coconut oil).

Everything but the face mask, Sleek palette and Rio wax was on offer, Lady Gaga's EDP was only £10 total bargain!

I will be reviewing these products as I use them, and I have to admit that I am pretty excited about this haul :)

Superdrug's Naturally Radiant Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser

Having been a Soap and Glory Peaches and Clean fiercely loyal fan for a very long time, I decided to try a more moisturising cleanser for my dehydrated and dry skin. Cue many hours of You Tube and blog post researching a budget friendly but result giving cream cleanser....obviously Liz Earle's Cleanse and Polish came up again and again as the most nourishing and skin softening cleanser on the market, however, I was surprised to see almost as many posts raving about Superdrug's Naturally Radiant Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser (with Muslin cloth).

I rarely go to Superdrug, preferring Boots, unless I want some MUA make up (also excited to try their new Make Up Revolution range!)- this has now changed due to their stunning skincare range (more posts to follow as I shamelessly purchased quite a few own brand products). I was actually blown away by how much Superdrug has changed since I last had a proper look approximately 8 years ago, plus they appear to have much better deals than Boots do and more regularly. I duly signed up for Superdrug's Beauty Card, and due to their 30 points per £1 spent I bagged myself a whole load of points which I then spent the following week on 'boys stuff' for my husband and children. Bargain!

My skin absolutely LOVES this cleanser, way more than the Peaches and Clean, not a single hint of breaking out or pH upset. My skin feels moisturised and nourished, and looks visibly calmer and far more hydrated than I was expecting. I don't think Superdrug are aware of what a wonderful product they have created, and they should absolutely be advertising this brand as I only stumbled across it from beauty bloggers/You Tube.

I use my hands to really massage it into my skin in the morning and follow with a warm flannel (I just cannot get that 'clean' feeling with any Muslin cloth). In the evening I use an oil based eye make up remover (I cannot bear cream cleansers on my eyes) and then massage in a generous amount of the Naturally radiant cleanser followed by my Philips VisaPure (which was on offer in Boots last Christmas and quite possibly the best skin care product I own) and rinse off with my trusty flannel.

The cleanser has a slight herbal smell but it is faint and not unpleasant, the consistency is a lovely creamy balm, and absolutely no residue is left on my skin after I rinse it off. I don't think I will be looking for another cleanser for a very long time as I cannot fault this at all, and my skin is also super impressed!

Superdrug also has a new fan in me- there will be more reviews of their skincare products and I intend to spread the word on this great product.....go and try it for yourselves (flannel is optional!).

Please leave me a comment if you have tried it or anything else in Superdrug's own brand ranges, or if you have found any unsung hero products we should all try.
