Happy Saturday lovelies!
Hopefully the weather is shaping up to belong to this time of year and everyone is out and about. i do love the first pub garden visit of the year! If not….at least it’s EASTER BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND! Hurrah! Chocolate galore!
You’ve probably heard of Una Brennan’s Super Facialist Range by now. I picked these up quite a while ago during a 3 for 2 deal as I’d heard such rave reviews about the range and for some reason they’ve just sat in my drawers.
I’ve decided to be good and rotate my products a lot more to get the best use out of everything so I’ve recently rediscovered them and here they are!
Her ranges are designed to give you the opportunity to give yourself an at home facial without expensive products and so you can get salon skin without the price tag.
It’s quite a big claim and I do wonder if anyone at all can succeed in this!
First up, the Rose Hydrate Intense Moisture Mask. This has been created so that it is even suitable for sensitive skin and is a thick white cream that you apply to dry skin for 5 minutes before removing it.
This allegedly boosts skin moisture levels and radiance by utilising white willow extract, vitamin U and urea with marshmallow to hydrate and replenish skin.
Applying this once or twice a week this should save my skin from the dehydration issues its been having lately.
As my skin has been that temperamental I was initially worried it would irritate my skin or make it extremely oily. I’m glad to say that this didn’t happen at all and my skin more nourished after use. I’ve even applied it as a moisturiser at night and left it on until the morning which was great too, no irritation and baby smooth skin!
Definitely a thumbs up from me!
Next up is the Miracle Makeover Facial Oil from the same Rose Hydrate range.
This pre cleanse treatment oil contains many natural oils including raspberry, carrot and avocado to eliminate impurities from the skin and encourage cell regeneration. It also contains brown algae and Calendula oil to soothe even the most sensitive skins leaving it feeling supple.
Sounds quite a lot from a little oil used before cleansing doesn’t it??
It’s directions state you apply a generous amount to your hands to warm it up before applying to your facial skin and massage it in circular movements to dissolve impurities and open pores before cleansing as you normally would.
I’ve used this a number of times and you need a few pumps (3/4) for a normal face of make up but if you’ve got heavy eye make up on you’ll probably require an extra 1 or 2 as it can be a bit stubborn when the oil is absorbing into your skin. Having said that I really like it and it does a great job of dissolving make up and has become a fixed part of my skin routine. I sometimes use a face wipe to remove the make up from my face before cleansing to dissolve some of the crap but this is definitely a less harsh alternative and works well without irritating my skin or coating it with oil. I just wash my face with my cleanser of choice as normal and I’m good to go.
The Mask retails at £8.99 but is currently on offer with £3 off, and the Miracle Oil retails for £14.99 but is currently £9.99 both from Boots.
Will you be trying either of these products out? What products have you tried from Una Brennan before?
I’ve heard so much about the Vitamin C brightening products I’m going to have to give them a go!
