A First Look At Superdrug’s Expert Winter Beauty Boxes

Superdrug’s two new guest-edited beauty boxes are up there with the best. One’s curated by make-up artist Bryony Blake, the other’s been put together by skincare expert Nadine Baggott. Together they contain everything you need to feel pampered this Christmas – including plumping serums, glow-giving highlighters and voluminous mascaras…


For Healthy-Looking Skin…

Nadine Baggott: The Winter Skincare Box


Nadine Baggott’s last skincare box for Superdrug was such a huge success, it’s no wonder she’s back with a new one – this time dedicated to restoring dull, dry, winter skin to its former glory. Inside, you’ll find a beginner’s retinol, plumping moisturisers and glow-giving exfoliation pads to get rid of dead skin cells.


“My favourite product in this box has to be the new Optimum Extra Strength 0.3% Retinol,” says Nadine. “A perfect retinol for beginners, it’s been chosen to sit alongside the other products to keep your skin healthy and soft throughout the winter months.” 

Worth: £50
Costs: £30


“My box costs just £30 but is worth £50 (if you were to buy each item separately), so it’s great value for money – plus, I’ve ensured it’s suitable for all skin types. Everything has been chosen to help you build in an easy skincare routine that involves just six products – cleanse morning and night with the Me+ Hyaluronic Cleanser, teaming it with the Nat Rad Reusable Cleansing Pads. Afterwards, apply your vitamin C Booster, then the Me+ Ceramides Moisturiser. Finally, finish off with the retinol in the evening, and then your Vitamin E Serum.” 

The Box Contains…

Me+ Hyaluronic Acid & Niacinamide Cleanser, Naturally Radiant 3 Reusable Cleansing Pads, Optimum Extra Strength 0.3% Retinol Serum, Vitamin C Super Booster, Vitamin E Moisture Boost Serum and Me+ Ceramides Moisturiser.

For Day & Night Make-Up Looks…

Bryony Blake: Ultimate Make-Up Kit


Bryony Blake is one of the most revered make-up artists in the industry. She’s worked on some of the biggest TV shows – think The X Factor, Strictly Come Dancing and This Morning – and has a sound knowledge of all things beauty. Her guest edit is every bit as good as you’d hope, with plenty of fun tips included…


“I love everything in my Ultimate Make-Up Kit, but the one item that stands out is the I Heart Revolution Nudes Mini Palette,” says Bryony. “You can create so many looks with it depending on your mood. Some of the shadows can double-up as a highlighter, too. I’m also a sucker for a multi-use product and a lot of the items in this box can be used for more than one thing.” 

Worth: £70
Costs: £40


“Everything included here is something I use myself regularly, so I know how easy they are to apply. It was also important to me that this kit worked for everyone, regardless of age, skin tone or whether they’re a total beauty novice. Everybody can enjoy it. Use the Missguided Eyeliner’s sharp tip for precise, graphic lines, or blend it out for a soft, smokey effect. As for the brushes, use the bigger one through the crease of your eye for a natural contour, and the smaller one for adding detail to your lids. Finally, apply ELF’s Putty Blusher directly onto the apple of your cheeks – smiling will help guide you. Using a patting motion, gradually blend it up towards your ear. It can be used on the lips, too.” 

The Box Contains…

Missguided Eyeliner (Espresso), I Heart Revolution Nudes Mini Palette, ELF Putty Blush (either Tahiti or Turks and Caicos), Nails Inc Nail Polish in Shade Fly By Victoria, Flower Warrior Princess Mascara, Revolution Fixing Clear Gel, MUA Lipstick in Trophy, Revolution Pout Bomb, Studio Dual-Ended Brush, B. Eyeshadow Brush, B. Lash Curler, B. Brow Groomer.
