Hey my darlings.
Today I want to share with you how I get my skin summer ready with affordable skin care products.
As you know, I love me some amazing skincare products, and I love it when they’re super affordable. (Because who has money to spend on a £50 facial cleanser ever couple of months?!)
I’ve been using products from Superdrug’s own range and one product from the Bodyshop. All of these products are vegan and vegetarian friendly, alcohol free, and if that wasn’t enough, these brands are both cruelty free!
As you can see, all of the products above are vitamin C infused, which helps improve the look of tired and dull looking skin, helps with pigmentation and gives your skin that healthy glow it needs all year round.
Starting off with the Refreshing Facial Cleanser (£4.99). This cleanser is more like a scrub, but you can use it once/twice a day as it is a cleanser and is alcohol free, so it won’t be drying your skin out. I’ve been using this for a few months now and I noticed after one use, it left my skin with such a beautiful and refreshed appearance straight away. Over a period of a few weeks, the appearance of my skin just kept getting better and better! It’s a definite must have.
Secondly is the Revitalising Jam Face Mask (£4.99). Words can not explain how much I love this face mask! It can be used either day or night, and has a goopy kind of consistency. It leaves your skin super smooth and hydrated. I love using this mask before I apply make up because it gives you that healthy, dewy finish! My make up looks a lot more radiant and sits better on my skin whenever I use this make before hand. The mask is similar to a scrub, so when you wash it off, use your hands to go in circular motions to really work the mask in and get all the dead skin cells off your face.
I use the Nourishing Gel Moisturiser (£4.99) every night as the last step of my skin care. I wouldn’t use it in the morning, as it is quite thick, creamy and hydrating, so you don’t want it to clog your pores with it, also I advise not wearing make up over this moisturiser as it will slide throughout the day! But this cream is perfect for getting that hydration back into the skin. It leaves you with dewy skin at night, and by the morning when you wake up, you can tell your skin has soaked in all this moisturiser because your face will feel plump and full of life!
Here is what the mask and moisturiser look like:
Moving onto the Brightening Eye Gel (£4.99). I use this every night under my eye cream just to brighten my eye area up. It doesn’t get rid of dark circles, but it helps brighten the skin under the eyes and gives you a little bit of life.
Last but not least is the Bodyshop Vitamin C Skin Reviver (£17.00). This makes such a perfect base for make up! It gives you a wonderful glow and smooths everything out on the skin. This product is a little pricey, but I’m sure I bought mine when the store had 40% off. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative, Superdrug also have a Vitamin C Booster for £4.99, which I completely missed otherwise I would have bought that too!
All of these Vitamin C Superdrug items are currently buy one get one half price, which makes it all the more affordable! Students get 10% discount on top of this.
All of Superdrug’s own products have a money back guarantee. If for some reason you didn’t like the products, you can return them at any point (further information can be found on their website).
With so much reassurance with the Superdrug guarantee and the budget friendly prices, I don’t see why anybody would not give this a go. These products are essentials all year round for topping up that glow during summer or even giving your skin some extra TLC during the winter.
