New in my beauty cabinet

Monday, October 12, 2015

I always seem to have a number of beauty products on my wish list, and even though I have a huge stash of products to get through, I identified some gaps that needed filling (OK, I'm kinda pushing the definition of the word need here, but anyway...)

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.

What's your best ever beauty buy?

  1. They all sound interesting to try. I'm not a great one for products unless I've found some amazing all natural face cream or something! Or organic products!xx

    1. I've made it my mission to find products that work and target my skin issues, I've used the same old products for far too long. The glycolic peel is amazing.
