Happy 50th Birthday Superdrug!


High street health and beauty superstore, Superdrug, celebrates being 50 this month.

We can’t help but think about the many beauty regimes that have changed since the opening of one of our favourite beauty stores 50 years ago. Back then, a full face of make-up would have set you back just over £1.00, nowadays we are lucky if we even spend under £10 on a mascara alone!

The adverts have definitely changed too. Check out the ‘beauty on a budget’ ad from the 60s in comparison to the visually stimulating Rita Ora for Rimmel campaign of 2014.

To celebrate its 50th milestone, Superdrug decided to create a list of its best selling products. We have decided to replicate that and make our own:

1) Tresemme Freeze Hold Hairspray

Tresemme Hairspray

This hairspray is the real deal. Having thick hair that does what it wants, finding a product that keeps it in place is such a struggle. Luckily this product exists for the hold I need for as long as I need it.

2) Superdrug Superberry Mud Mask

Raspberry Clay Face Mask

With China Clay to absorb any excess oils, this face mask helps keep you shine free and the raspberry seeds gently exfoliate for a healthy glow.

3) MUA Eyeshadow Palette Undressed
