Cleansing oils. After the Miscellar Water buzz, cleansing oils have become the next-big-thing in the beauty industry. With this many choices in the Cleanser aisle, it sure is very overwhelming. One nod of Caroline later, I settled with the Super Facialist by Úna Brennan Vitamin C+ Brighten Skin Renew Cleansing Oil. Which sure is a whole lot of words for just one product.
I use this oil in my night-time routine, as part one of my two-step cleanse. When applied on my face, I make use of the chance to give myself a mini massage for about 30 seconds. After that, I just rinse it off my face with cold or lukewarm water, where it will turn in some kind of milky consistency. Worry not, it doesn’t leave some kind of film behind and leaves no traces of make up either, as confirmed by the infamous cotton pad test.
As the name suggests, it’s infused with Vitamin C to brighten up the skin. Besides that, it’s also packed with Olive, Grapeseed and Rosehip oils to nourish the skin. Because of this blend of ingredients, the oil smells wonderful and is very uplifting at the end of the day. The only thing I’d complain about is the packaging. Don’t get me wrong – I love the big, chunky bottle. It’s just that it can become quite a mess when trying to dispense the right amount of product. Now I won’t say I’m all Edward Cullen after the cleanse, but it certainly does make my skin look more plump and glowy afterwards. You’ll be able to get your hands on this at your local Boots and will only make you 11 quid lighter. Bargain!
