What are everyone's fave Superdrug products? I'm heading out there later to pick up some body lotion. What's too good to miss? (I really like the handcream in the blue tube; miles better than other far more expensive brands).

I love the dental floss in the white packet, the acetate free nail polish remover, their shaving gel with the peach coloured lid & the plum & red cherry handwash & bubble bath.

Their Fresh deodorant, antibacterial hand gel, pore strips, whitening toothpaste, and tea tree face wipe thingies too. And they have Samy hair products and GOSH make up there too.

Nice, those new bubble baths (the cherry / plum & the cran / pom) smell so good...the only problem is that Nick keeps stealing it all!

Just wondering, there's a few products on the Superdrug site I'd like to order
But they don't show the ingredients
Does anyone have a link/list of their vegan products?
Thought I'd ask before I email them

Does anyone know what I can use on my hair for eczema? I was using the co-op anti-dandruff shampoo and it worked really well but they don't seem to be selling it in my co-op anymore which is crepe.

Also, the toothpaste and mouthwash in Superdrug are 2 for £1.99 and if you buy the Superdrug brand razor (not the disposable kind) you can get the shaving gel for free. I was very pleased with my little trip there today.


I have scalp psoriasis that reacts really badly to most chemically hair products and I'm finding Samy shampoo & conditioner great for both my scalp and hair. You can feel the moisturising silkiness in both the shampoo & conditioner.

Superdrug fans, don't forget to fill in the online survey (if you've got a receipt that's less than 30 days old, check the back of your receipt) and you'll get 25% off own brand and 10% off named brand products. I got £70 worth of stuff this week for £40 using the discount code and 3 for 2 offers, sweeeet!

Thanks Fezza, I have been looking for a good shampoo for so long so I will definitely try Samy out.

I got some Superdrug body scrub and sensitive toothpaste today. I have the most sensitive teeth in the world so if
this works I'll be squealing.

I didn't realise any of the superdrug toothpastes were vegan, excellent!

Reading that made me run to the bathroom and double check and they are definitely vegan friendly!

Oh this is so good to know! I am almost on the point of definitely needing new toothpaste. And maybe some makeup, for the three times a year I want to wear it. I would have never thought to look in Superdrug.

Only the deodorant, which made me smell worse than wearing none.

Oh, not a good thing. I was looking at their face wash and moisturisers... My problem is that I have to order pretty much everything online and I'm trying to minimize shipping costs.

I bought the Samy shampoo and conditioner and I am in love. My hair had started to really dry up and I have already had a few people mention how healthy my hair is looking! I also got the Amie skincare stuff and it is really helping my skin (which can get quite oily). I have so much love for superdrug right now.

I get psoriasis too, which Samy ones did you get because they have quite a few products in my local Superdrug?

Yaayy, glad you still like it! I'm using the colour protect one and can even go for 4/5 days now without washing my hair if needs be (if I don't use styling products). Normally I have to wash my hair every other day to control the psoriasis.

I got Superdrug's dry skin relief cream today. I've just tried a little on the eczema on my hands and it seems really good. I wanted a good body lotion in case I want to slap a bit of fake bake on over the summer. I also wanted fragrance free so I can put a couple of drops of my favourite essential oils in, perfect!

I love that cream. I had never thought about adding essential oils!

Just make sure they're skin friendly oils and bob's your uncle! I love slathering on lavender lotion when I'm having a rough day but the only one I like is Jason and it's too expensive. You could probably use things like vanilla or ginger extract too, nomnomnom!

I was thinking lavender because I always want everything in the world to smell like it but I love the idea of vanilla. I want to smell like baked goods!
