Superdrug Naturally Radiant Collection Review
I will straight up admit I bought these products on a whim. As I have now crossed the HUGE line and turned 30, I have started to think more about skin care ingredients and have focused on those “fine lines” – which to be honest to me are not that “fine”. I started to research different ingredients, and to be honest it was all very confusing! Words like “Salycilic Acid” and ” Copper Peptide” were being thrown around like I’m supposed to know what that is…
That being said, after extensive research (thank you Google) I decided that Glycolic Acid was my starting point. Nowadays. products are labelled with the ingredients rather than a fancy name so this was quite easy to pin down. However, as I had no idea what I was doing I decided the most sensible option was to start with affordable products and see how that goes.
So! As a long term loyal fan of all things Superdrug, I stumbled across their Naturally Radiant collection. super affordable and had the main ingredients I was looking for, so off I went!
“Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser is formulated with a unique energising complex and infused with Kiwi Fruit and Mulberry extracts to help revive skin’s radiance and even out skin tone.
Enriched with nourishing Cocoa Butter, this rich and creamy formulation melts into the skin and cleanses away make-up and impurities, whilst also providing gentle exfoliation, leaving skin feeling renewed, soft and ultra clean.”
Although this product does not have a fancy ingredient in its’ title, it is part of the collection so I went with it – and I love it! It is super gentle and leaves my skin feeling moisturised, but somehow also removes every single trace of makeup. HOW!? I don’t need to know. All I need to know is that it works, and it is – in a word – lovely.
Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Micro Polish
“Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Micro Polish is formulated with a unique energising complex and infused with Kiwi Fruit and Mulberry extracts to help revive skin’s radiance and even out skin tone. Enriched with Blueberry Seeds and Fruit Acids, this polish exfoliates dead skin cells, helping to refine skin’s texture and clarify skin discolouration for an ultra smooth, luminous complexion.”
I am a big fan of exfoliators and have tried countless different ones. The Brightening Micropolish is gritty enough to satisfy my need to scrub, but also not sharp or OTT. It melts into the skin and leaves it silky smooth.
“Naturally Radiant Glycolic Tonic is formulated with a unique energising complex and infused with Kiwi Fruit and Mulberry extracts to help revive skin’s radiance and even out skin tone. Highly concentrated in Glycolic Acid, a powerful Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), the refreshing tonic also refines pores, retexturises the skin’s surface and smoothes fine lines, providing a brighter, healthier and more youthful complexion.”
We have a winner. I have to say it would actually be difficult to pick a favourite from this collection, but the ****** is the cherry on the top. Yes it has Glycolic Acid in the title, but it genuinely feels like it is actually making a difference. A word of warning, if you have gone a bit crazy with exfoliating or have any open “sores” on your skin then this will sting. But personally I like that as it makes me feel like its’ working – a bit weird I know. I love this, and regardless of what else comes my way I will continue to use this daily.
“Naturally Radiant Glycolic Overnight Peel is formulated with a unique energising complex infused with Kiwi Fruit and Mulberry Extracts to help revive skin’s radiance and even out skin tone. With Glycolic Acid, a powerful Alpha Hydroxy (AHA) and a Fruit Acid blend, the refreshing gel formula also refines and retexturises the skin’s surface, providing a brighter, more youthful complexion.”
To finish off the routine, this is bang on. I didn’t actually see the Superdrug Naturally Radiant Renewing Night Cream which I now have (and also love!) but these two products paired together are literally what dreams are made of. To start with it feels a little “tight”, but this loosens as my skin drinks it up. The Glycolic Overnight Peel sinks into the skin so beautifully.
Overall it is safe to say that I am obsessed. Not only has this collection been a wonderful introduction into the world of skin care ingredients, but it works! I am in love with every single product and it instantly made a different to my skin. After one use my skin looked brighter, more hydrated (less old!) and my pores actually looked smaller. I am 100% a fan, and I won’t say that I will repurchase these products because I already have. Thank you Superdrug!!!!
