Superdrug BB Cream 5-in-1 Day Cream Review


My only makeup purchase since arriving in London has been Superdrug’s BB Cream 5-in-1 Day Cream.  It retails for £6.99 although I think I may have gotten in for less when a sale was on.  This product is suitable for vegans.  All of Superdrug’s own brand products are Leaping Bunny/BUAV approved although, it appears, not all are vegan. 

Overall, I have liked this product.  This BB Cream has the same feel and application of other BB Creams I have used and loved in the past.  As far as the colour is concerned, it isn’t a perfect match.  I purchased the shade ‘light,’ but it is a bit too dark and slightly orange although I can blend it in well.  For reference, I was NW15 in MAC foundations.  I usually add a tiny bit of a lighter BB cream I own (but reserve for special occasions) to perfect the shade.

I have been considering trying another BB cream by ‘B.’ which I have seen in Superdrug.  I know this brand is only sold in Superdrug stores, but I’m not sure it is their brand.  However, it is Leaping Bunny/BUAV approved so I will be checking whether it is vegan or not on my next trip in.

I also purchased the Dead Sea Purifying Clay Mask from Superdrug.  I was extremely disappointed.  It took forever to dry, and I noticed absolutely no change in my skin after using this mask as well as another Berry something or another facial mask.  I will not be repurchasing these or any of their masks again.

I hope to have my next posts about some miscellaneous London favourites and my new everyday products up soon!
