New in my beauty cabinetMonday, October 12, 2015
I wanted a hydrating serum. My skin felt in need of a bit of a boost and my current serums are more about radiance, than hydration.
After a bit of research on Boots I ordered the Soap & Glory Bright Beautiful 6-in-1 Energising Radiance Serum. It seemed pretty reasonable at £13.00. It's a nice formula, my skin drinks it up. It has a shimmer in, which looks a bit too sparkly until I apply my normal tinted moisturiser, and then I'm just left with a nice glow.
A few days later I read about the Superdrug Simply Pure Hydrating Serum on Sparkly Vodka's September Favourites post. I happened to be going into town and so I picked one up, at £2.69, and with a rave review ringing in my ears, I'd be mad not to.
Whilst there I spotted the Superdrug Naturally Radiant Glycolic Overnight Peel and popped this in my basket as well. It's normally £5.99 but it was on offer so I paid just £2.95
The Simply Pure serum is my favourite of the two serums. It's a nice light formula that melts into my skin. I'll do a proper review when I've been using it a while longer, you can check out Caroline's review on Sparkly Vodka, if you want to know more. It's definitely worth trying.
The Naturally Radiant Glycolic Overnight Peel sounds a little scary but it's actually lovely. It claims to refine and improve the texture of skin's surface, adding radiance and improving uneven skin tone. I've been using it for just a few days and I can see a difference in my skin already. It's a light gel formula that smells slightly masculine - in a nice way. The smell reminds me of something but I can't put my finger on what it is. Anyway it's given my dull skin a real boost, I'm so glad I popped this into my shopping basket.
