Saving money and nabbing a bargain has definitely become a-la-mode over the last few years. No longer do you have to sneak your cheap and cheerful lipgloss back in your bag, or feel guilty for picking up an own-branded product instead of the more expensive counterpart. The rise of affordable fashion (hello Primark!) and sites such as eBay and Etsy has seen a complete change in the way we buy our wares; we now celebrate the fact we picked up a bargain and show it off to our mates with pride. Dupes and more affordable alternatives are always incredibly popular when I feature them on LBQ, proving there’s a demand and thirst for efficient ways to spend your hard-earned cash. As a result, I’ve teamed up with Superdrug bring you a week long edit of dupes and suitable swaps to celebrate their new Swap Shop campaign! They want you to make the switch to one of their own brands and I’m here to help…
Did you know the average Brit could save over £150 a year by swapping from pricey brands to ‘own brand’ beauty and toiletries? Why not get involved with Superdrug’s Swap Shop this June and save some pennies – just in time for the summer holiday season when we need them most. If you pop into store this June, any member of Superdrug staff will be happy to suggest an own brand alternative to your usual branded product choice; not only will this introduce you to the huge (and fabulous) portfolio of Superdrug ‘own brands’, but it will save you a fair few quid too. If you aren’t completely happy with your alternative then Superdrug will offer a 100% money back guarantee, with a 25% off voucher for your next own brand purchase – so there’s really nothing to lose! To start you off, here are a few brilliant ways you can switch up your usual products and save a decent amount of cash… Without compromising on quality.

Superdrug have some incredible brands and products on offer in store, especially their ‘B’ skincare range which my Mum and Nan loved after testing it for a number of weeks. I’m a big fan of their suncare products, spent my youth stocking up on their body range and couldn’t do without a huge stash of their beauty tools for essential grooming. All week long I’ll be bringing you my must-have dupes, cash-saving alternatives and products that you’d never know cost only a few quid – proving that a trip to Superdrug is well worth a weekend diversion. To kick the week off in style, we’re giving away a huge hamper of goodies worth up to £200 to one lucky person; the winner will be asked to provide a list of all the usual products they use or like, and Superdrug will send them a bundle of their own brand treats so you can try the portfolio of own brand products they have to offer for yourself. What an opportunity! If you want to be in with a chance of winning, just enter via the widget below… Now let’s do this and save some serious cash (so we can spend it on a few summer cocktails!)
