Hi everyone! I hope you’re all staying safe at the moment. I just want to make a point of saying, while of course this situation is affecting some worse than others, please do not feel silly for struggling with the lock-down stipulations; it can be so hard trying to adjust, and I for one have been struggling. I say this on every post at the moment, but my comments/emails are always open for those of you who may need a chat. It’s a difficult time for everyone right now, and my thoughts go out to everybody affected by this situation. I know that I will never be taking even the most mundane things for granted ever again.
I’ve been focusing on my skincare routine during this lock-down, especially as make-up has just been non-existent. A positive of this is that my skin has cleared up, but I am craving a little bit of time to get all glammed up so I think I will be doing a post soon that focuses on make-up! But, for now, I will be discussing Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Range, and the three products you NEED to try. A couple have featured in previous blog posts, but I think the brand now deserves a post dedicated to it entirely.
Why do I love this brand?
I’ve mentioned before that I always try to source cruelty-free brands, and this range is entirely cruelty-free AND they have a lot of vegan products too. It’s also super affordable, with the general price range falling between around £5-£10, but everything is ALWAYS on offer – check here to see their recent offers – get buying while you still can! Now for my top three…
Product 1 – Hot Cloth Cleanser
So the current price for this product is £3.48 for a 100ml bottle which also comes with a muslin cloth, and this is a vegan product. For application, gently massage onto the skin with the tips of your fingers, and then rinse the muslin cloth in warm water and use to polish off the cleanser. I’ve loved this product since I first started using it back in October and would say it’s an absolute must-have! It gets rid of excess make-up while gently exfoliating your skin. It contains skincare essentials such as Vitamin C, Mulberry Fruit, and Cocoa Butter, all of which work to even, brighten, moisturise and draw out impurities.
Product 2 – Glycolic Tonic 5% Toner
This is another product priced at £3.48 for a 100ml bottle, although it does not state that it is vegan on the website. This too contains Vitamin C and Mulberry Fruit, but it is also highly concentrated in Glycolic Acid which helps smooth out fine lines and helps reduce pores (both of which are issues I am REALLY insecure about), while also being renowned as a key ingredient for exfoliation (read more about it here). Again, this is brightening and keeps the skin healthy rejuvenated. Apply using a cotton pad to the face and neck.
Product 3 – Renewing Night Cream
Again, this is on offer for £3.48 for a 75ml bottle, although I must add that this also doesn’t state that it’s vegan. This is a product I’ve only recently tried but I absolutely love it and would say that this is an absolute must-have as you will wake up with the SOFTEST skin. It contains Sugar Beet and Fruit Acids which work to moisturise the skin and leave your face feeling super smooth. Apply using the tips of your fingers in circular motions until fully absorbed into the skin.
I hope this post has given you some skinspiration to keep your skin fresh during the lock-down. What’s imperative during this time, however, is that you’re looking after your mental health and keeping safe. It’s a scary world right now and it’s okay to feel worried, you’re not alone. Keep doing positive things and stay in touch with friends and family.
Hopefully I can keep up the blog posts because I really am finding it therapeutic. One of the main things I’ve tried to do during this time is keep myself busy, and so far so good! Speak soon xxx
