Superdrug Swap Shop

Superdrug Swap Shop

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?
