This winter has been particularly cruel to my skin. I have had the driest eye lids and under eye area. In case you didn’t know and are lucky enough to have smooth plump under eyes, this dryness makes any lines I already have look as deep and dark as the Chesterfield Canal. (That’s pretty dark fyi).
So imagine my surprise and relief, that after months of trying different eye creams and creams maybe you shouldn’t put near your eye, I have found something that cleared it right up!
The Naturally Radiant Moisturising Facial Oil (£7.99 from Superdrug) is a a pretty new product to the range. I was intrigued by it as I have been occasionally using straight Jojoba Oil on my skin when it feels like it needs it. In the past I would have avoided a face oil like the plague – I was all “my face does not need any more oil, but thank you though.” However more and more I hear (or read) people saying how well face oils have worked for them, so I was willing to take a chance. It recommends about 2-3 drops for the entire face, which is plenty in the day, and I go a bit overboard in the evening with maybe double that. But my skin just drinks this in! It doesn’t leave you with a crazy oil slick face, it just soaks in and leaves behind soft supple skin. It smells lovely too, it’s not too strong, just a light, fresh scent. When I put it on in the morning I just give it a few extra minutes to allow it to soak in properly before I put on make up. Many oils can be expensive and this one doesn’t break the bank, so it might be worth a try before you invest in something more pricey. If you are dubious, yet intrigued about facial oils I would say give this one a go – I am very pleased that I did.
This blog is starting to look like a Superdrug Appreciation Fan Club, but it’s genuinely just where I tend to go and buy things, safe in the knowledge that the vegan and cruelty free products are clearly labeled. This Naturally Radiant Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser (£5.99) is another gem. This claims to ‘gently cleanse and exfoliate’, and ‘awaken the skins natural glow’. The cleanser is really creamy and smooth, you just massage it all over your face (I comfortably use this to remove eye make up too!) and then use the muslin cloth provided to gently polish your face (I don’t really know how you go about polishing your face, I just make up the moves as I go). This removes even the most stubborn of make up, and my face feels so fresh and clean afterwards. Really chuffed with this, and by comparison, it makes me feel like the eye make up removers I used before maybe weren’t as gentle as I thought. It’s also said to be a dupe for the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish (££££), I have not tried this so can’t compare but I can definitely recommend for a gentle make up removal and wonderfully clean feeling skin.
Another product I thought I would mention from this range is the Naturally Radiant Brightening Day Cream (£5.99). I actually have used all this product up, it was a really nice moisturising cream to use daily underneath make up. I always look out for moisturisers that contain an SPF, and this one was a reasonable price and did the job nicely. I still haven’t found ‘the one’ when it comes to day creams and I like to try new things so whilst I’m not rushing out to repurchase this I would consider it in the future if I ran out, and would suggest it if you are in the market for a cruelty free & vegan facial moisturiser.
Have you tried anything from the Naturally Radiant Range? Recommend me something if you have! I find it amazing value and haven’t tried a bad product yet! Not to mention that Superdrug very often have deals on when’re you get the products for an even better deal.
