Here at Superdrug HQ, we get to try out a lot of products. We put that must-have serum from across the pond through its paces before putting it on our shelves. We finely tune our own-brand formulations, so they overdeliver on every single benefit claim. So, it’s safe to say our in-house experts – made up of buyers, marketing pros and all-round beauty lovers – have seen it all, and then some. Wouldn’t it be great to know which gems make it into their very own skincare collection? Well, as luck would have it, they’ve spilled the secrets and have shared what that love putting in their baskets time and time again!
Pore strips are making a comeback. There we said it! Oddly satisfying to use and offering up instant results, our Skincare Buying Assistant Joe says:
‘I love using the Starface Lift Off Pore Strips because they’re great at removing any impurities from my pores, leaving it feeling and looking great afterwards!
After the first time I used one, I noticed a huge reduction in the number of blackheads, and it left my nose feeling extremely clean and visibly smoother. Side note, I love the bright and fun packaging too.”
It’s become a cult classic for a good reason, and Ecommerce Coordinator Kate uses it on the reg to keep her skin glowing. She says:
“I love the Vitamin E face cream as it’s really moisturising and high in antioxidants; I like that it has SPF15 in it, so I know my face is being protected from the sun. It feels like a really high-quality skincare product but at a great price – I use it every day!’
Elliot Willis, Shopper Marketing Executive, has just started on a bottle of this L’Oreal Paris serum but is already raving about its effects.
He says: “What a game-changer! I have only been using the L'Oreal Paris Revitalift Filler Serum for a few weeks now, and I’ve noticed a massive improvement in my skin. It has improved my confidence, plus I’m so happy I discovered this throughout winter as it has saved my face from becoming dull and lifeless.”
Skincare Buyer Sarah couldn’t pick between her favourite cleansers. She says: “My two fave cleansers in the whole world! I love the entire CeraVe range, but I find their cleansers are on another level. I start the day using the smoothing cleanser – I find it exfoliates just enough with a light foam and leaves my skin feeling bright and clear for the day. I then finish the day using the cream to foam to melt away all makeup signs, leaving my skin feeling silky soft and ready for bed. I definitely couldn’t live without these two items and can’t recommend them enough!”
Who said you had to pick between a clean skincare routine and self-tan? Put the two together, and your new-found glow will blind your neighbours. Our Assistant CRM Manager Jess adds these radiance-boosting drops to our usual routine. She says:
“I just LOVE the Tanologist self-tan drops. I mix a few drops in with my moisturiser before I go to bed and wake up with a natural, even tan. It’s my go-to product!”
If your skin is thirsty and needs an instant pick-me-up, our Skincare Buyer Ruby swears by the B Perfect Hydro Glo Tanning Mist. She says:
“It’s really easy to use doubles as a lightweight tanning product. I spritz this on my face in the morning once or twice a week, leaving it to then dry before continuing with the rest of my skincare routine. It gets my skin glowing, and the best part is you aren’t left with any tan on your hands!
