Super Facialist Una Brennan Vitamin C+ Brighten Skin Renew Cleansing Oil


I’ve been raving on twitter for a little while how much I absolutely love Una Brennan’s Super Facialist Skin Renew Cleansing Oil. It’s everything about it and I just cannot get enough!


Costing £10.99 from Boots, I have always heard great things but for some reason just never got around to buying it. Now I’m annoyed at myself!

Vitamin C is known for its anti ageing and brightening properties and so it’s a welcome addition to my routine. Double cleansing is also something that I’ve become increasingly aware of and so I couldn’t wait to start cleansing with an oil first to remove grime and make up and then cleanse my skin properly with my usual cleanser.


As for the contents, here;s what they say:

 Infused with Vitamin C and nourishing Olive, Grapeseed and Rosehip oils, this highly soluble oil transforms itself, upon contact with water, into a light milky texture. Boosted with Rosemary oil, Vitamin E and soothing Cucumber oil it gently dissolves face and eye make-up and removes daily impurities.

Sounds like it might be alright yeah?



I simply pour a few drops of this into my palm and then apply it to my dry face and let it work its magic. It seems to melt off the majority of my make up really easily and even manages to get through the toughest mascara and the boldest of eye liners.

When you’ve had enough of rubbing it over your face you simply add water and it turns to a milk and can be rinsed off, easy peasy. I then follow this with a cleanser and hope that this is helping to cleanse my skin more deeply and thoroughly.


I cannot go any further without mentioning the smell. If I could drink this, I would and I have found myself sat in the bathroom just sniffing the bottle; I’m a fan of the old citrus scents and this one is fabulous!

Needless to say after using this for a few weeks my skin feels thoroughly cleansed and it hasn’t had any negative reactions whatsoever; I’m a firm fan and with Boots often doing 3 for 2 deals on skincare I can certainly see this becoming a firm favourite, especially for £10.99!

Have you tried any of the Superfacialist range? What’s your favourite? 

I’ve used a few things from the range before but this is my favourite so far!

    When I've used up The Body Shop's Chamomile Silky Cleansing Oil I might give this one a try! I like Una Brennan's hydrating Rose mask and the Tea Flower moisturiser xx
