I quite like having a mooch around Superdrug – it has brands that you can’t find in good old Boots, and occasionally some bargains.
I noticed the Purity Skincare range which had quite a decent ingredients list so tried out 2 products –
Anti-Aging Mask and Serum (£8.99 for 50ml)
Anti-Aging Moisturiser (£7.99 for 50ml)
So was it any good? Well…
Let me start with the face mask. It’s a gel type cream, you smother it over your face and leave for 10 minutes. I prefer this over masks that dry, so I found this one was very soothing and didn’t cause any itchies.
They actually say on the site that you can leave it on overnight! (reminds me o Elemis’s Quartz Mask which I also like and cost me something like £45).
As for anti aging – well I can’t say it did that but it is a good one for very sensitive skins, and adds moisture.
Prunus Amygadalus Dulcis (sweet almod) oil
Aloe Barbadensis (aloe vera) leaf powder
Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry) Seed Oil
Rosa Centifolia Flower Water
Tocopherol (Vitamin E)
Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf Extract
The Anti Aging Moisturizer is also quite lightweight – once again quite soothing and didn’t cause any allergies. I would say it is quite a ‘basic’ cream though – now this will suit some people but for my aunt who used this cream for a few weeks, she found it wasn’t enough for her dry skin.
I’d say this would work well for people who want quite a basic, organic cream and who do not have dry skin.

There’s tons of other products on the site! I am considering trying out the scrub or cleaners, since I find cheaper cleansers are just as good as expensive ones, and if its organic, even better!
