Another day another face mask and this time it’s a really lovely apricot one!

I love the Superdrug face masks they’re such good value for money and I’m working my way through the whole range. You can find it here and it includes some for men, though I’d argue anyone could use any of them!

So, this is the Apricot Exfoliating Mask and I have to say it’s one of my faves so far! It feels lovely on the skin and the smell is so lovely!!!

My skin looked lovely and clear after and felt really clean, it didn’t feel too taut or dry and my moisturiser went on well.

For 99p this is well worth every penny. I have to be careful with scented products as my skin can be über sensitive and I was very pleased with this as I didn’t even get a tingle!

I will definitely be buying this one again as it really is lovely! Go treat yourself ☺ today xx

I Got a Natural High – Gentle Exfoliating Face Scrub by Superdrug

Whilst indulging in a new MUA eyeshadow I also came across this little beauty in Superdrug.  It’s £2.49 at the mo which is half price… come on!!!!  And not only is it cruelty free it’s also Vegetarian aaannnnddddd VEGAN!  Hurrah!!!!  The link to it is here.

The scrub has organic Apricot Kernel Oil, for Vit B, and softening, Apricot Seed and Walnut Shell which is the exfoliator and Sweet Almond Oil which is a fantastic moisturiser and skin softener.  It really does sound good enough to eat, tho don’t it’ll taste pretty grim :S

I used this in the shower earlier and it was really good.  It is very sweet-smelling, which could be a little overpowering for some but I liked, and it’s lovely and thick.  It was easy to massage into my face and the seeds/shells weren’t too harsh on my sensitive skin.  I would suggest caution, as with all exfoliating scrubs, as overzealous scrubbing of even the most gentle of these on the face could lead to very sore skin and red patches!  The scrub rinsed off easily and left my face with that really clean, tight feeling.  I followed it with a gentle soap and really felt like all the build up from the day/week was gone!  Lovely!!!!

Another word of caution, steer clear if you have any nut allergies!

This is not a product that I’d recommend using every day, once a week should be enough, unless you’re doing a lot of gruelling tasks that leave you with a build up of yuck on your face!  Over exfoliating can lead to break outs, soreness, sensitivity and unbalanced skin so don’t go too mad 🙂

This is definitely going to have a place in my bathroom, even at full price it’s a bargain and will last for agessssssssssssssss!

Superdrug is definitely on my ‘Love Love Love’ list as a top place to shop, dirt cheap and cruelty free, amazing!
