Superdrug Tea Tree Cleansing Pads Review

Hello everyone!

I'm a sucker for anything that is a cleansing or exfoliating product, and this fits the bill for both! Currently at £1.48 from Superdrug (usually £2.99) these are great value for money, and have been something I've been using a lot lately.

I mainly use these either first thing of a morning as part of my skincare routine, or I'll use them after cleansing my face - just for that added fresh feel. They're not harsh on the skin, nor rough, so they're perfect for using regularly.

They are doused in Tea Tree oils, so if you don't like that smell, steer clear. I've got a love for that smell so these don't bother me, but I know it makes my Mum scrunch her nose up! There are 40 pads inside each container, so if you only use one a day, that's over a months worth. Not bad for the price!

Are you a fan of cleansing pads, or do you prefer other methods? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Collection Longer Lash Waterproof Mascara

Hello everyone!

I love mascara more than any other beauty product, and this is a new find of mine! I accidentally picked this up in Brown/Black instead of Black, but it's been a nice change from the usual mascara I wear. This is the Collection Longer Lash Waterproof Mascara which you can pick up in Superdrug for £2.99. The packaging seems to be orange on the site, but black in store, so keep an eye out for it!

I love the fact I got the wrong colour and love it. The brown makes my eyelashes look longer and thicker, but doesn't seem clumpy. It also looks a lot more natural on my eyes than the black ones that I'm so used to wearing all the time. The brush is simple and easy to use, which is something a lot of products should stick to!

Overall, I love it. Can't fault this one!

Have you tried this at all, and what are your thoughts on brown mascaras? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Binky London Lipstick #7 Romance | Review

Hello everyone!

I'm not usually a fan of lipsticks, but I received this as a free gift with my Pink Parcel back in January and just had to share it with you! I've worn it a couple of times so it was due a review! If you like it, you can pick it up for £2.95 from the Binky website. The colour I got was #7 Romance, in a lovely red colour.

It's quite a creamy formula which I really like, as I find a lot of lipsticks dry my lips out fast, but this didn't. The colour is really strong and pigmented, so it only took a quick swish of it over my lips to get the desired effect! I found that it lasted a few hours before needed a touch up, but I'm sure this is standard with more lip products, so this didn't bother me too much.

It's not a colour I'd wear often as it's so vivid, but I like it!

What do you think of the colour? Have you tried any of the other colours from Binky? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Makeup Revolution Baked Eyeshadow Electric Dreams | Review

Hello everyone!

One of the companies that I totally love for makeup products is Makeup Revolution. They have amazing quality products for affordable prices, and I am ever so slightly addicted to them. I've been using their products since before they arrived in Superdug, and they have yet to let me down!

This wonderful mini palette is called Electric Dreams, which you can get from their site or Superdrug for £2.50. YES THAT CHEAP.  It has four shades of purple and one white colour, along with a mini sponge applicator.

I have green eyes, so purple contrasts really nicely and this little set is perfect. You can make a really good smokey eye look with this as well due to the colours all being complementary of each other, which is an added bonus! Each is really pigmented, so there isn't need for a lot of applications as the colour builds up instantly, and they are really nice, bright and vibrant. It really gives a nice look and finish to your makeup.

I might need to buy the others in this range!

Also they have a twitter MakeupRVLTN, where you can keep up to date with them!

I've predominately used this for nights out at the moment, as I've not been brave enough to use if for day wear, but how would you use it? Let me know below! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)
