If you didn’t know Superdrug have their own skincare products that are not only super affordable, but there is more than one range to chose from, you’re missing out. I did a little digging, some emailing and lot’s of research to find out exactly which order to use the Superdrug naturally radiant range (which I currently use myself)!

So here’s the low down on what the Superdrug naturally radiant range is about, how much it costs, and all that jazz
Let me start with saying that the entire range is super cheap! I bought almost every item in the range when there was a sale on (which there is like all the time, so save your pennies and buy then). Every single product in the range is under £6! And that’s when there’s not a sale on! Bargain right?!?
Next I just want to say, all of Superdrugs’ own products (including the B. range) are cruelty free. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know I’m all about cruelty free beauty and living, and try my best to incorporate it into my life. The fact that there is so much to chose from is just a big fat yes from me. Plus, they have a 100% satisfaction guarantee or your money back, so there is no way you’re losing out really.
Most of the products in the range are, you guessed it, focussed on radiant skin. They include kiwi and mulberry extracts to help revive your skins radiance and even out your skin tone. Some of their products in this range aren’t suitable for sensitive skin, so this is something to look out for.
Onto the routine
Step 1 – Cleanse
There are two different cleansers to pick from, both are said to remove makeup and brighten skin. Out of the two cleansers (Hot Cloth Cleanser and Complete Cleanser), my personal preference is the hot cloth cleanser. Not only is this an amazing dupe for the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, but I also find it does an amazing job at removing makeup (I use the hot cloth cleanser as a second part to my double cleanse routine). The complete cleanser is a foam cleanser, which personally is not for me. But with the prices that they are, it is totally worth giving them both a go! I try and use the complete cleanser on a makeup free face, and hot cloth cleanser to help remove all my makeup.
*NOTE* – When removing the hot cloth cleanser with a muslin cloth, you are also gently exfoliating skin. This is something to take into consideration if you have super sensitive skin.
Step 2 – Exfoliate
There is one exfoliator in the Naturally Radiant range, which is the Brightening Micro Polish. The polish is said to exfoliate dead skin cells, help improve discolouration and refine skins texture. You can use the polish on both wet or dry skin. Although it is not suitable for sensitive skin (due to some of the ingredients), I do feel like it is a gentle exfoliant.
Step 3 – Tone
Again, two options here for you. Superdrug have Glycolic Acid Pads which you would simply sweep over your face after washing off your exfoliant and patting your skin dry. The second option, and the one I currently use, is the Glycolic Toner, which you would apply using a cotton pad after patting skin dry. Always avoid the eye area, and remember to give love to your neck!
Step 4 – Serum
Now the Naturally Radiant Serumis actually a 2 in 1. The product is both a moisturiser and serum, which can come in handy if you’re feeling lazy and want to cut out a step. Personally I don’t think it is moisturising enough, so I would say to moisturise after it’s all sunk in. But, you do you boo x
Step 5 – Eye cream
According to beauty guru, Huda Kattan, eye cream should be applied after serum and before moisturiser. Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Brightening Eye Cream is one that I unfortunately I have no experience with, mainly because they didn’t have it in stock when I did my shop, and because I’m currently using the Boots Botanics Organic Hydrating eye cream.
Step 6 – Moisturise (Last I promise!)
There’s two to four products you can pick from, depending on your skin type! FOUR!
The reason there are four is because it depends on the time of day you’re moisturising, and quite honestly because everyone has different preferences. I’ll start with the two day creams that you can pick from, Superdrug Naturally Radiant Cream Normal/Dry (I use this one) and the Superdrug Naturally Radiant Cream Normal/Combination. The creams are quite rich and thick, and do take a while to sink in. Both are suitable for sensitive skin, and are vegan friendly!
There is a Superdrug Naturally Radiant Renewing Night Cream which is the only night cream available. Another product I haven’t tried, but would consider!
The last moisturiser in the range is the Superdrug Naturally Radiant Radiance Balm, which can be used alone and under makeup. The balm has hints of glitter inside it, so would look good under makeup. The radiance balm however doesn’t have SPF, which is something to consider. Personally, I’m not a fan.
The last item in the entire range is the Superdrug Naturally Radiant Glycolic Overnight Peel which I’ve not included in the steps because it is completely up to the person if they’d like to use it that day or not. It is to be used 2-3 times a week after cleansing, and should be washed off in the morning, followed by SPF. I do like this peel, it doesn’t feel super harsh but it does tingle. Definitely worth the price! I’d use it when I feel like my skin could use a extra pick me up, probably after i’ve done a face mask.
So that’s everything in the Naturally Radiant range, step by step. I have consulted Superdrug’s own brand team to make sure i’m giving the correct information, and am only posting once they gave me the details.
Do let me know if you try the products, I’d love to know what you think!
Lots of love,
