I've always loved shopping at Superdrug for beauty essentials such as my body butter, sun cream and some the brands that they stock on the high street that others don't! Recently I was introduced to Superdrug's Swap Shop where if you 'swap' what you would usually buy for Superdrug own equivalents and if you're not 100% happy with the swap you get your money back!
Another bonus of doing the swap is 25% off your next shop, which in my eyes you don't really have much to loose! So what products did I swap and what did I get as a replacement? I found from swapping my branded products to the Superdrug own brand I saved £35.50 which is a hell of a lot of money when it's all added up, like a new pair of shoes, a whole weeks shopping or even a full tank of fuel which is definitely a switch worth making!
For the swap I swapped the following and got in return what Superdrug class as their similar product:
-Schwarzkopf Salt Spray
-L'Oreal Micellar Water
-Burts Bees Lip Balm
-The Body Shop Cocoa Body Butter
-Bastiste Dry Shampoo
-Balance Me Radiance Face Mask
So I am I won over by the Superdrug alternatives?
As far as the Micellar water, the body butter and the face mask go I'd happy swap products of what I usually buy full time as I found them to be just as good, if not better in some cases. With the Sea salt spray although it was good and I like it, it didn't give off the same smell which the the Schwarzkopf which is one of my favourite parts of the product. I love love love the Burts Bees Lip Balm so it would be a pretty hard product to beat and unfortunately it's just not the same sort of texture and doesn't smell the same as the Burts Bees, so I think I would stick to that and I am pretty sure no matter how many dry shampoos I may try none of them will ever be as good as Batiste which makes my hair feel freshly washed every single time I use it. Although the Superdrug is good for the money, and has a pretty smell, I don't feel like it doesn't the job quite as well!
Will you be taking part in the swap?
