Superdrug are leading the way just now when it comes to cruelty free beauty products at the moment! All their own brand products are cruelty free, and great news too – its all super affordable! I’ve picked up a few different products from them recently – I’m aiming to make all my beauty regime cruelty free from shower products to skin care – I even want my toothpaste to be cruelty free. I’m even going to make my next toothbrush better for the planet by ditching the cheap plastic ones and going for a bamboo one I think!I picked up a few things from their Naturally Radiant range – this range is infused with plant extracts and features glycolic acid. I picked up their Glycolic Overnight Peel, Glycolic Acid Tonic and their Glycolic Acid Daily Cleansing Pads.
So the Naturally Radiant Glycolic Overnight Peel is infused with Kiwi Fruit Extract, Mulberry Fruit Extract and of course Glycolic Acid. It claims to revive skins radiance and even refine and retexturise the skin, despite it being an over night peel it doesn’t peel the skin (at least not visibly). I’ve only used this the once but I’m looking forward to trying it more. I also got the Naturally Radiant Glycolic Acid Tonic. This says it’ll refine pores, retexturises skin and refines fine lines. I’m excited to see how my skin looks after using this for a while. Final product from the Naturally Radiant range is the Glycolic Acid Daily Cleansing Pads. These pads aee meant to help with achieving a brighter and clearer complexion. All three of these Glycolic products are £5.99 full price but they’re currently on offer!I also got one of Superdrug’s new face masks – the mask I picked up was the Blueberry Jam Face Mask! I literally picked this up cause it looked like a jelly, pretty cool for a mask! They had a bunch of different types of masks in the range but they all cost £3.29. I’ll let you know what I think of this weird lil mask.Final few things I picked up was from Mane n Tail. I did a wee bit of digging to find out about their stance on animal testing – and great news, they don’t test on animals!!!! Mane n Tail are a strange brand since they obviously started out as a brand for horses, but its so good to know that they don’t test on animals.
I got both the Shampoo and Conditioner along with their Detangler – I want to try their strengthener too but the Superdrug I went into didn’t stock that, darn. Anyhoo, I decided on the Original Mane n’ Tail Shampoo. I’ve tried it a few times and its quite a weird consistency, bit gloopy and white – almost lumpy? Its got a nice wee smell too it too, the Original Conditioner is just like most conditioners in consistency but just a wee bit thinner I’d say. Both the shampoo and conditioner cost £5.99, its a little on the higher price side for shampoo if you’re used to buying the cheapest available like me, but its definitely not the most expensive shampoos you can buy.
The Detangler costs £7.99 and says it will help with tangles, the look of dry split ends whilst conditioning hair more. I’ve yet to try this, but I’m planning to do a proper in depth review of all the Mane ‘n Tail products soon.
What cruelty free brands do you think I should try?
