Superdrug Optimum PhytoCalm Bedtime Cleansing Balm…{Not an Ad, gifted. I purchased this myself}

Hello my lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

I have been using this cleansing balm for about 6 weeks now and I actually got very disappointed that I wouldn’t be able to share my thoughts with you. As soon as I bought it from Superdrug Online I tried it and really loved it and I decided to get another one so that I had a backup. To my dismay it was no longer available, even though it was a new product. I have since found out that it is still available, but it appears to be in store only right now. 

As I said at the start I really love the Optimum PhytoCalm Bedtime Cleansing Balm. It’s a Superdrug own brand which I am a huge fan of. 

Although this says Bedtime Cleansing Balm, I have been using it in the morning as well as at night. For night time, if I have been wearing makeup I remove it first with another Superdrug product, a miscellar water. I then massage all over my face including eyes with the balm cleanser. It’s not a massively hard balm it’s easy to get from the pot to use and it does move easily over the skin and melts almost oil like into my face. It doesn’t sting or irritate my eyes, and it takes away the last traces of makeup that the miscellar water has left behind when I remove it with a wet face cloth, or muslin cloth. It does smell amazing too, very sweet and floral, which would be from the Four O’clock Flower which is within the product. This beautiful fragrant plant is often used in skincare for sensitive skin due to it’s calming, hydrating and strengthening properties. The Optimum PhytoCalm Bedtime Cleansing Balm will always be a repurchase for me now for as long as it’s available, it’s just lovely and leaves my skin feeling clean, soft and smooth. There’s an overnight mask available which I shall share with you soon. 

The Superdrug Optimum range of skincare is cruelty free and suitable for vegans. See more products HERE



A Small Superdrug Haul……

Hello my lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

I had these gorgeous products sitting in my basket on the Superdrug website for some time now, so I thought it was about time to actually click “pay” and purchase them. In the interest of transparency I have to tell you that nothing in this beauty booty is pr gifted, I paid for it all myself. I have previously worked with Superdrug and had products from all these ranges gifted to me in the past, that’s why I buy them myself now to be honest, I know they work for me. Although I’ve never had pr from Rimmel, ever. I shall just have to dream about that, loving Rimmel nail care and polishes like I do!

For me, anything that has the Superdrug name on it works for me. Be it their varying ranges of skincare or their own range of makeup that is B. by Superdrug. The Optimum range of skincare is one of my favourites, and that range in particular caters for anyones skincare needs, whatever age. The newest range from Optimum is the night-time or bed time range of products. I treated myself to the Cleansing Balm and the Moisture Mask. I also got myself two products from the Optimum PhytoSurvive range, the Multi Protecting Serum and the Multi Protecting Day Cream.

Another Superdrug own brand of skincare is B. Skincare. I chose two cleansing products. A mahoosive bottle of Micellar Water, and a simply delicious bottle of the Micellar Oil, which is an oil to milk cleanser. From B. Makeup I picked up the Flawless Duo Concealer. All Superdrug own brand products are Vegan friendly.

Lastly I treated myself to two Rimmel 60 second super shine nail polishes, in the shades Black Cherries and Berries and Cream.

Well that’s just a few of the gorgeous products that I picked up from Superdrug a while back, and I’ve since added a few more to my basket, like Flower Beauty’s foundation and concealer ( a lovely looking makeup range by Drew Barrymore, the actress) I can’t wait to get my hands on those in a few weeks.

Thank you for stopping by today, I’ll come back soon with reviews of some of the products in my haul.
