Superfacialist By Una Brennan

Superfacialist Tea Flower Purifying Cleansing Wash - £7.99
Superfacialist Rose Miracle Makeover Facial Oil - £14.99 / Superfacialist Rose Calming Creamy Cleanser - £7.99

On a daily basis I normally opt for three different cleansers - Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm twice a day followed by REN Mayblossom T-Zone Control Cleansing Gel in the morning and REN ClearCalm 3 Clarifying Clay Cleanser at night. This trio is absolutely perfect for my combination skin type but all together they come to a total cost of £70! I'm determined to stick to a budget this month so when they all ran out at the same time a couple of weeks ago I decided not to repurchase any of them. I bought some cleansers from the Superfacialist By Una Brennan range instead for a total of £30. I might've been playing with fire by changing out three of my skincare staples but my more frugal replacements have actually been serving me rather well.

There are three ranges available: Rose for hydration, Tea Flower for deep cleansing and Neroli for firming. First of all I went for the double cleanse system in the Rose collection. I tend to think of facial oils as an alternative for moisturiser like the Clarins Lotus Oil but the Miracle Makeover Facial Oil is a pre-cleanse product. I've used a couple of cleansing oils in the past such as Dermalogica Pre-Cleanse and a Shu Uemura cleansing oil but both of those are quite pricey so I've never repurchased them. I do really like this one though. The rose scent is gorgeous & it feels lovely on the skin. Some oils can leave a greasy film when you wash them off but this one doesn't at all. It does a decent job of clearing off makeup, even mascara & eyeliner. Oils are brilliant at unblocking pores, especially blackheads. If you struggle with blackheads then you need to try a cleansing oil ASAP! The Rose Calming Creamy Cleanser is a great follow up cleanser to the facial oil. It's very soothing & effective at reducing redness in my skin. The rose products leave my skin feeling so soft & supple. They are so gentle & suitable for even the most sensitive skin. These products would be great for anyone with dry, dehydrated or combination skin as they cleanse, hydrate and balance skin very effectively.

I also bought the Tea Flower cleanser for those days when I'm feeling a bit oily or spotty. It contains Salicylic Acid, a BHA that really clears out congested pores & combats blemishes. It is a gel based cleanser that foams up a tiny bit so it's a nice one to use with my Clarisonic. It does leave my skin feeling very clean, albeit a little bit tight. The rest of my skincare routine soon sorts this out though. The Tea Flower range is ideal for anyone with blemish-prone skin so I think I'll be trying some more of those products soon.

Superfacialist By Una Brennan is currently exclusive to Boots. At the moment you can save 1/3 off all the Superfacialist products so now would be the ideal time to try out these fab cleansers. I'm really impressed with everything I've tried so far. I have never come across skincare products as good as these at such a low price. Think I need to buy the Tea Flower Pore Purifying Clay Mask next!

  1. I can't stand rose scents but I really want to try the oil!! It sounds so lovely.
    I have the tea flower cleanser and I quite like it! I tried it with my clarisonic and there were SO many bubbles everywhere, I couldn't breathe!

  2. I've seen a few people post about these and I'm tempted to try them out, however the rose scent does put me off a little. If they work for me though, id be happy to brush that off!

  3. I really want to give this cleansing oil a go, I was only thinking today that I want to tackle the dreaded 'black head' situation, which I will say isn't that bad but I just hate them!

    I'll take a look at this next time I'm in Boots, ty :D

  4. I am so tempted to test out that facial oil!
    My oily t-zone is highly annoying.


  5. These sound like a really lovely and affordable skincare regime, and the bottles are really cute too! xx
