Superdrug's Simply Pure range is specially formulated for sensitive skin. These products are mild, gentle & 100% fragrance free. I first heard about the Simply Pure Hydrating Serum from the SkincareAddictionUK subreddit. They uphold the same kinda skincare ethos as the original SkincareAddiction but with an emphasis on products that are readily available over here. This product is a lightweight gel-cream serum. It contains hyaluronic acid, lactic acid & ceramides which are all things I tend to look out for when choosing new products. It also features a soothing agent called Soothex® which helps to reduce irritation. This stuff is amazing for dehydrated skin. It instantly moisturises the skin and sinks in really quickly, leaving it feeling soft & nourished. The lactic acid also gently exfoliates the skin to make it feel super smooth & lighten post-blemish marks. It's suitable for use both day & night before applying your moisturiser. This serum soon makes a difference to the texture of your skin & it feels so lovely to use. The best part is the price. This stuff costs less than £3. Seriously, go buy some right now!
B. is another brand that is exclusive to Superdrug. The products in this range are slightly more luxurious but everything is still very affordable. Plus their products are 100% vegan & cruelty-free. The majority of the B. skincare range is divided into four categories. The products are all formulated for use at different stages of your life known as 'skin phases'. The B. Replenished Facial Oil fits into skin phase 2 which is aimed at people aged 30-40. Although this oil isn't intended for use by people like me who are still in their twenties, there's no reason why we shouldn't use it. Whether you have oily or dry skin, a facial oil is a must-have in any skincare routine. The antioxidant rich formula of the B. Replenished Facial Oil helps to protect & hydrate the skin. It features rosehip, argan & crambe seed oils along with vitamins C & E. Together this potent blend of oils boosts the skin's moisture levels without blocking pores. It's powerful enough to hydrate for 12 hours whilst protecting against premature wrinkles & imparting a youthful glow to the skin. To apply it you can either warm a few drops of the oil in the palms of your hands before massaging it into the skin or mix it with your daily moisturiser. My skin laps this stuff up & it immediately brings some radiance to my complexion without ever looking or feeling greasy. It smells divine too! This product would be a great introduction to the world of facial oils & as you only need to use a tiny amount, this elegant glass bottle will last for a very long time.
