Superdrug Naturally Radiant Hot Cloth Cleanser

11 Apr

Before this I had never tried hot cloth cleansers, to be honest I was never overly interested in skincare products until I turned 21 last month and I know it’s not really old, but I started to think it was time to really look for some good skincare products.  I saw this in Superdrug when I was buying a micellar water and decided to pick it up as well.

All of Superdrug’s own brand products are not tested on animals and this one is suitable for both vegetarians and vegans. Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Hot Cloth Cleanser claims to remove makeup and impurities while gently exfoliating and even out skin tone.  It does this as it contains kiwi extracts, mulberry extracts and cocoa butter.  It comes in a box and also contains a muslin cloth which I think is amazing for the  price.

I wasn’t sure if was going to like this as it comes out really thick and creamy and I thought it might leave my skin oily, but it doesn’t!  To use this you just rub into the skin on your face and neck, rinse the muslin cloth under hot water – wrining out the excess and then simply wipe off.  I find that this really helps to remove any makeup and leaves skin feeling super clean and super soft.  I find that when I use this I don’t need to use a moisturiser, however if you have dry skin then you might wish to use a moisturiser.  I also feel that this has really helped improve the appearance of my skin.

It’s recommended that you use it with other products in their Naturally Radiant range and considering how much I love this I think I will definitely be trying the rest of the range which includes a cream, face mask, radiance balm, night cream, a polish scrub and a 2 in 1 moisturiser and serum.

Overall I would really recommend this product, I don’t have any other hot cloth cleansers to compare it to but I really don’t think you’ll find one to rival this especially for the price.  It can be purchased from Superdrug in store and online for £5.99 and is currently half price at £2.98.  All the other Naturally Radiant products are half price too.

Have you tried hot cloth cleansers, what did you think of them?  Have you tried any of the products in Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant range?

Superdrug Colour Vibrance Hair Dye in Cosmic Purple (3.66)

20 Nov

I decided that after having my hair a similar colour for almost 2 years I decided to go back to purple!  I had tried to dye it purple about 6 months or so ago (with Garnier Olia) but the colour barely took it and it didn’t even dye some parts despite being completely saturated in dye and faded quickly.

I was in Superdrug and decided I wanted something different and having tried one of their dyes before (which  worked really well) I decided to try Cosmic Purple.  When I had purple hair before I got it done at the hairdressers, specially mixed up for me and no box dyes ever seemed to compete with the look that it gave.  Superdrugs hair dyes are also not tested on animals.

I forgot to take a before picture but  I would describe it as being an auburn colour and I wasn’t sure how the dye would take as my hair has been dyed a similar colour for two/three years and has a lot of red build up/staining.

In the box you get the usual, gloves, instructions, developer, colourant and a conditioner.  You mix the colourant with the developer and then apply.  It has a creamy formula and applies really easily and doesn’t drip.  If you slightly messy when applying dye, like myself, you will be glad to know that it wipes of things easily however this is best done before it dries.  I don’t feel that this dye smells to badly especially when compared to others.

After 30 minutes rinse it of and apply the conditioner, which smells really nice.  Its also a good size meaning that it can be used again when ever you need it.  The instructions recommend using it as a weekly treatment.

I was really impressed with this colour it has went quite a bright purple at the roots, which were a light brown colour and has left the rest of the hair a purple/red colour.   There are a few bits that the dye hasn’t really managed to colour (these are small and look a little like hi-lights) but like I said my hair has a lot of red staining on it, but I think that putting another box of Cosmic Purple will help make these bits more purple.  I think if your hair doesn’t have a lot of previous dye on it then it will most likely go a bright purple.

I think this will be my new favourite hair dye for a while and it is definitely the best permanent purple hair dye that you can buy in the shops.  I have washed it a few times since dyeing it and it hasn’t faded at all.  At the moment the Superdrug Vibrance Colours are 2 for £6 so it’s definitely a good buy.  I have quite think hair and need just one box however if your hair is any longer than mine I would recommend that you use 2 boxes.  As you can see this hair dye leaves hair super shiny and healthy looking.

Have you ever tried any of the Superdrug hair dyes?  What did you think of them?  Or do you have another favourite hair dye brand? 🙂
