B Superdrug Skincare Challenge!

As a beauty blogger, I'm sure you can imagine I LOVE trying out new lotions & potions and rotate the products I use almost daily.  When B. is for Beautiful challenged me to trial their skincare range for a full 7 days in a row, using NO other skincare products I was apprehensive to kiss goodbye my old routine but also super excited to try out the range and see the results.

It was a hard task, but I managed it and wanted to share my thoughts from the past week!

















I swapped all my products for a morning and evening regime that was chosen out specifically for my skin type (being acne prone, combination and as I'm turning 26 in less than 2 weeks, also good for anti-ageing).

Morning consisted of Melting Gel Cleanser, Day Cream, Eye Cream & Targeted Wrinkle Filler, which all helped prep my skin for the day - the wrinkle filler acting as a gel to help makeup glide on softly around my eyes, and day cream to moisturize and protect (contains SPF15).

Evening consisted of Micellar Water, Melting Gel Cleanser, Facial Oil, Night Serum and the Eye Cream.  I used the Refined Exfoliating Cleanser twice in conjunction with the Cleanser and boy, my face felt the cleanest and softest it's been in a long time afterwards.  Combined with the facial oil (another of my favourite products from the range) and eye cream, my skin felt really soft, clean, pampered and well looked after.

I've never in my years of beauty-blogging tried using all products from the same one range before and I've also realise I really like having products which match (packaging wise).  It helped my bathroom look organised and clean.

I say:
I'm sure you're wondering what if I've seen any results after a week of just using this range?  Well the results were surprising.  I'm normally covered in cystic spots after adding any one new product to my regime but so far, I haven't got any!  I experienced a few tiny whiteheads (that disappeared after a day) after using the Refined Exfoliating Cleanser but I think this is down to it getting all the bad stuff out of my face!  Apart from that, my skin looks brilliant - soft, dewy (down to the Night Serum I'm sure) and clear.

I also tried a couple of makeup items from the B. range (the thought of also using just ONE brand for my whole beauty regime for the week was tempting) but failed!  I do however love the powder, Intense Lip & Cheek Colours and the Longer & Lengthening Mascara (images above).

B. say:
B. is the complete makeup and skincare brand that’s easy to use, understand and proven to work. Whether you want flawless skin or inspiring on-trend looks in a few simple steps, we make it easy.  Exclusively at Superdrug

  2. I always see B. in superdrug and I'm always wanting to try but it's not a brand that is spoke about much in the blogging world and so therefore am apprehensive but now I'm very eager to try out their serum because there isn't many drugstore serums out there :-)

  6. Do you usually use a micellar water? How did it compare to the pricier brands? I have been tempted to try it instead of Gatineau, should I go for it?

  16. I have just started using this brand and i started with the micellar water and i loved loved loved it, my skin is combination and im prone to spots but my god this totally cleared my skin of any dirt. I went for a shower first and washed my face with a spot facewash then i used the micellar water and there was still dirt coming of my face but after use i felt very refreshed so now i have bought the day cream and i think i will get the rest of the range for skincare.
