I've been on the hunt for some more purse friendly skincare items to take the place of my more costly cleansers and facial oils, so when Alix popped this post up about the Una Brennan skincare line I headed straight for my local Boots. The Super Facialist line offers up three ranges which include: Rose for hydration, Tea Flower for a deeper cleanse, and Neroli for firming. As I find my EH Cleanser does a good enough job in terms of a deep pore cleanse I opted to pick up some bits from the Rose Hydrate range as my skin has been irritatingly dry and de-hydrated as of late.
Now, I do adore my REN Clear Calm Clay Cleanser for days when I'm a tad more prone to blemishes and the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm for the evening but I felt my stash was lacking a more every day gentle cleanser, and that's where the Rose Hydrate Calming Creamy Cleanser comes in. The Creamy Cleanser and the Miracle Makeover Facial Oil are a great cleansing duo that has given my skin a new lease of life and added a much needed radiance.
The stand out product for me has to be the facial oil which acts as a pre-cleanse to the skin, I literally use a pump of this and massage it onto my skin in circular motions. Not only does it give off a subtle rose scent which I happen to love but this oil doesn't leave a greasy film on the skin which I have experienced with cleansing oils in the past. Only problem is I can see this running out very quickly!
Next up, after washing off the Facial Oil I then up the anty with the Calming Creamy Cleanser. I find this cleanser great for those of us with sensitive skin as it is super soft and brilliant at reducing redness which is something I tend to suffer with. My skin feels so refreshed and supple afterwards and I can see this becoming a fail safe team within my skincare line up.
Last up on my Una Brennan binge is the Radiance Day Cream with SPF15, I picked this up due to a severe lack in daytime moisturisers. Let me tell you, this day cream is SO soothing, the cucumber oil and marshmallow extracts work wonders at calming the skin which offers up a healthier base before applying my daily make-up. My skin does appear more radiant, nothing too radical but definitely a product I would re-purchase purely due to the way it calms and hydrates my skin. I thoroughly recommend Una Brennan SF, great skin care on a budget, what more could you want ;)
My eyes are on the Tea Tree range next! Have you bought anything from the UB Super Facialist range? I also recommend keeping an eye out for the 3 for 2 offers in Boots, as it saved me some penny's!
