Mini Superdrug Haul

Mini Superdrug Haul

Having just arrived at my university in Manchester I was desperate to do a drugstore haul and pick up a few bits and pieces. A few of these are repurchases of products that I really can't live with out and the rest are new products that I now have some first impressions of. So I thought I would do a short post with a little bit of detail on everything that I bought. 

The repurchases
  • Garnier Micellar Water - when I first tried this I really wasn't too convinced but now this is basically the only thing that I use to take of my makeup every evening. And the price is just such a steal!
  • Elegant Touch Rapid Dry For Nails - it's just awful when you spend ages on your nails only for them to not quite be dry and get completely ruined! I wouldn't say that this takes 60 second to dry nails but it really does help speed up the process. 
  • Sudocrem - if you haven't tried using this on spots then you need to change that now! Don't know what I would do without this product. 
  • Maybelline Super Stay Clear Nail Polish - I like to use this as a top coat on my nails as it's a pretty good price and it makes colours look so beautiful and glossy. 
  • Exfoliating gloves - a pretty standard purchase really! I like to replace these every so often as they can get a little grotty after a while
  • Superdrug Pedicure File - I forgot to bring one of these to university with me. And even though summer is over and my feet will be stuck in boots for the next few months I am still going to try and make the effort!

The New Products
  • Tea Tree Nose Strips - I've been using nose strips for a while but I always get the ones from Boots. Wasn't sure if this counted as a repurchase or not but they are pretty much the same!
  • Superdrug Eyeshadow Brush - I never seem to have enough eyeshadow brushes for some reason. Or maybe I just don't wash the ones I have enough! This one isn't as soft as I hoped it would be so I am always still reaching for my Ecotools one. 
  • Superdrug Facial Exfoliating Sponge - I don't use a facial exfoliating scrub so I thought this sponge would be a good alternative to that and be more gentle without having to change up my face wash. I've used this a couple of times and I really like it but I don't think it is something I will use everyday as that may be too harsh on my skin. 
  • Tea Tree Spot Stick - over the past few days I have seen a little bit of an increase in my breakouts, probably to do with it being freshers week and drinking a little. I bought this to control my spots a little and so far so good. Although I have only been using this for a few days so it is probably too soon to tell if it is making a real difference. 
  • Garnier Body Beauty Oil Scrub - I really needed an exfoliator for my body and usually I reach for the Soap and Glory one as it just smells so good buy this time I wanted to try something different. I've used this a couple of times in the shower and I am really impressed. It doesn't smell as good as the Soap and Glory one but it does leave my skin a lot more moisturised. I really want to try out some more products from this range now. 
  • Venus And Olay Razor Heads - Basically I just needed some more razor heads, not very interesting. But I picked these ones up because I thought that they would be more moisturising. I was a bit annoyed when I opened the packet that there were only 3 however when I did use these they were so much more gentle on my skin and I am definitely very please with these even if they are a bit more on the expensive side. 
Hope you liked this post. Let me know if you have tried any of these products and what you thought.

  3. Good to know about the ' Garnier Micellar Water ', ive been undecided if to try something different. I normally use the loreal skin perfection, which seems to do the job. Have you tried there Eye Make-up Remover or there Nutritionist Regenerating Night Cream? There two of the products im also wanting to try :) xo
