B. From Superdrug

There are always those brands flying around online that are meant to be amazing and you never really get around to trying and, for me, one of those brands was definitely B. by Superdrug. I knew people rated this brand really highly, and I knew that they were cruelty free which is never a bad thing - but they were just a brand that I'd never really sought out in the past. When they offered to send me some bits and pieces in order to help me see the brand for myself, I eagerly accepted and I have to say; they really haven't let me down.

We have to start with the Fan Brush because I've been using this is quite a few videos over on my YouTube channel lately and it's better than I ever could have imagined. It's 100% synthetic, which I'm usually all about - but this is so soft that it's quickly become one of my favourite brushes. I wasn't sure about using a fan brush for my highlight because I love that shit bold - but this has really worked for a bold, concentrated highlight kind of look, and to be honest it'll only set you back £7.99 and so you'd be stupid not to add it to your collection, no offence.

Next up are their Makeup Brush Cleansing Wipes, but these are my least favourite of all the things that they sent. Now don't get me wrong, that's not to say that these are bad - but they definitely don't quite hold their own against the rest of the products; and they just weren't what I had expected. These really do clean your brushes - but I just find them a little redundant; they're too wet to use as a spot clean (i.e. you can't use them whilst swapping from shadow to shadow to use the same brush) and if I'm going to get them fully wet anyway to wash them I'd sooner just do a deep clean. If you're away or on lazy days though, these are definitely better than nothing in a pinch - and they're not to be sniffed at when they're only £3.99 for a packet.

Finally, and by far my favourite product that B. sent over to me is the Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spritz; and this is something that I didn't know that I needed in my life but I'm not quite sure how I lived without it now that I've been using it every day. This is just a really handy thing to have in my makeup bag - I've been using it to dampen my beauty blender, to spray over makeup when it looks a little cakey or, alternatively, just in between skincare layers in order to add some extra moisture when my skin is really dry and uncomfortable. Basically, this is clean, seemingly lasts forever and it's just a really handy little addition to go in your bag. It's £7.99 and so it isn't cheap - but in my humble opinion it's worth the price and more.

All in all, I've been really impressed with B. - there's just something about the brand that seems to be amazing, and effective, all whilst remaining affordable. Knowing that it's cruelty free definitely adds to the charm - but if you haven't tried B. yet I would definitely say give it a go if you get the chance.
