Speed Review: Superdrug Naturally Radiant 2-In-1 Moisturiser and Serum

I've previously tried a couple of products from Superdrug's Naturally Radiant range, namely the Hot Cloth Cleanser and Brightening Renewal Face Mask, both of which I quite liked. As such, when I was browsing the shelves of Superdrug recently, I decided to try out another product from the range and opted for the 2-In-1 Moisturiser and Serum.

Superdrug Naturally Radiant 2-In-1 Moisturiser and Serum is described by the brand as being formulated with a unique energising complex and infused with kiwi fruit & mulberry extracts to help even out skin tone. They state that it is enriched with nourishing fruit acids and that it has a rich, velvety formula to deliver long-lasting moisturisation, whilst also helping to refine skin texture & clarify, for a smoother & more radiant complexion.

I feel that Superdrug have been quite clever in the naming of this range- after all, who doesn't want naturally radiant skin?! The range has gained something of a following within the blogging community and it is certainly the range which I always have a glance at in Superdrug, in case there's anything new which jumps out to me.

Superdrug Naturally Radiant 2-In-1 Moisturiser and Serum is packaged in a small plastic bottle with a pump and this is presented inside an outer box, which adds a little something extra considering it's an affordable brand. That said, I wouldn't say that there's anything luxurious about the packaging. The green colour and text isn't the most modern and it's obvious from the packaging that it's an affordable product. Whilst I appreciated the functionality of the pump dispenser, which lends itself well to the texture of the product and also helps to avoid wastage, I would have preferred if the bottle were transparent in some way so as to be able to tell how much product was remaining.

I found that 2 pumps provided sufficient product to cover my face and as such, it feels as though the bottle would last a while & provide good value for money. The texture is an opaque gel and during use, it reminded me more of a primer than a serum. Despite initially feeling as though it was merely sitting on my skin, I did find the product to be easily absorbed. It has a pleasant, fresh & fruity fragrance which I didn't find overpowering.

Personally, I don't think that this is a 2-In-1 moisturiser for all skin types. Certainly, I couldn't forgo moisturiser and still used it on top. That said, those who usually choose to skip this step or those with very oily skin might get on well with this product.

This isn't my favourite serum and whilst my skin was left feeling hydrated, it wasn't to the same extent as with other products I've used. I feel that the claims are rather over-enthusiastic and as a result, the product is a little disappointing because it fails to deliver on them in my opinion. That said, if you take the claims with a pinch of salt and want a simple product, this might be worth a look. It worked well under makeup but I wouldn't say that it particularly boosted my skin's radiance.

At £5.99 for 50ml, this is an affordable product but one which I personally wouldn't repurchase, simply because there are other serums which I prefer.

  1. Can I ask what skin type you have and what other products would tou recommend?
    I found that instead of using two pumps I use mich more and actually feels very nice on skin. I like it like this but if you would recommend other products you think are better I will give them a try. I am a mixed skin type. Thanks.
