Superfacialist by Una Brennan: Vitamin C+ Brighten Skin Renew Cleansing Oil...

Cleansing oils are by far my favourite way of taking off my makeup and cleansing my face. They're incredibly effective and leave my skin feeling soft and clean without feeling stripped. I picked up this Una Brennan offering after my skin went a little awry from running out of my DHC Deep Cleansing Oil.

I have a slight love/hate relationship with this product. Lets start with the hate... The packaging... a viscose oil product in a bottle with the widest neck ever and no pump?! Who's brain wave resulted in that. I dug out a pump from a old hair product to use with it after spilling a large amount down the sink. Secondly, it has a really synthetic orange scent to it. It reminds me of a Body Shop shower gel.

But putting those aside, the Superfacialist Cleansing Oil is actually really nice. It is not as heavy duty as the DHC one, it even advises on the packaging that it is a pre-cleanse product and should be followed up with a cleanser. It removes makeup well and leaves my skin looking radiant but not shiny which can always be a danger using oils on oily skin. My skin feels so soft after i've cleansed with this oil, and when used in conjunction with the other products in the range, my skin is hydrated and dare I say, radiant?

Like I say in all of my skincare posts, I have acne prone skin and I just can't stress enough how much oils have improved my skin. I have consciously made more of an effort to stay away from products aimed at acne prone skin (La Roche-Posay aside) as they strip the skin of natural oils and ultimately make the whole situation worse.

Have you tried anything from the Una Brennan range?

Much Love,
