The Superdrug Clearly Youthful skincare range comprises of six different products and I’ve already featured two other products from the range; the Clearly Youthful Glycolic Peel and the Clearly Youthful Cream Cleanser. Seeing as I was so impressed by both of the two Clearly Youthful products, I decided to purchase the Superdrug Clearly Youthful Resurfacing Night Serum £3.99 as I thought it might have a been perhaps a budget alternative to the lovely Ole Henriksen Invigorating Night Creme which I love but it’s £47 so I’ve been on the hunt for a budget alternative ever since.
Clearly Youthful Resurfacing Night Serum is a unique anti-blemish and youth-boosting solution containing the maximum permitted level of spot-fighting active Salicylic Acid, combined with anti-shine Cimicifuga and a potent anti-ageing complex consisting of Lactic Acid, Phytoprotein and a Polyglycan. It contains an highly concentrated formula, also containing a superior collagen boosting Tetrapeptide and an anti-pigmenting active Red Algae Extract, works while you sleep helping to replenish and nourish.
Working to resurface the skin’s texture, refines pores and evens out skin tone, controls excess sebum and provides long-term sebum regulation, protects against further breakouts with continued use, diminishes the appearance of age spots and hyperpigmentation.
Superdrug Clearly Youthful Resurfacing Night Serum’s Claims:
After 1 week of use:
Fine lines and wrinkles appear visibly reduced.
Skin looks visibly clearer and healthier.
After 4 weeks of use:
Blemishes, imperfections and dark spots appear visibly minimised.
Skin appears visibly firmer and more plump.
The Superdrug Clearly Youthful Resurfacing Night Serum is packaged within a clear plastic bottle with a pipette applicator. To use the serum the directions recommend squeezing two to three drops onto the back of the hand and apply with your fingertips in circular motions until fully absorbed. After applying the serum it’s important to apply an SPF moisturiser after use and the following day to protect the skin against the sun due to the active ingredients contained within the serum.
The serum has a slightly jelly-like consistency with quite a strong chemical scent which isn’t very pleasant but once the serum has absorbed into the skin, the scent does disappear – if it didn’t disappear, I’m not sure I’d be able to carry on using it as its such a strong scent.
Obviously the ingredients list in the Superdrug Clearly Youthful Resurfacing Night Serum and the Ole Henriksen Invigorating Night Creme are completely different but they are both lactic acid based and although I thought they might be similar, I didn’t expect them to be so similar.
They both have a completely different consistency, but the scents are similar and they give very similar results in that they both really help to resurface the skin’s texture and leave my skin looking and feeling so healthy and plump. I don’t think I can justify repurchasing the Ole Henriksen Invigorating Night Creme unless Escentual had one of their 20% promo events on, but until then this £5 option will more than suffice – I cannot recommend the Superdrug Clearly Youthful range enough.
