I have a fab cleanser to talk about today, Una Brennan Superfacialist Rose Hydrate Calming Creamy Cleanser. I originally heard about the range from Ruth Crilly of A Model Recommends, so when I was in the market for a new cleanser I found myself browsing on the Boots.com website and I came across the range. Una is a facialist of many years experience who wanted to create an affordable, honest and uncomplicated skincare range. There are sub ranges within the brand depending on skin type, Rose for sensitive skin, Neroli for firming and plumping, Salicyclic Acid anti blemish, Vitamin C for brightening, Retinol and Probiotics collections.
I don’t have particularly sensitive skin, but really enjoy using a cream cleanser and this one is versatile. It takes makeup off very well without stinging, the rose fragrance is quite strong which doesn’t bother me, however if you dislike strong fragrances I would say that Superfacialist isn’t a range for you.
This cleanser is Cocoa Butter based with Shea Butter, Glycerin and Rosa Damascena Flower Water making this formula suitable for dry, combination and sensitive skins. If you are particularly acneic this may not be great for you because of the Shea Butter content. It’s a moisturising cleanser which doesn’t strip your skin, you definitely feel clean after using but not in an ouch take me to your moisturiser way.
I use the size of a 50p piece for my face, neck and decollete, I am quite generous with product so you may want to try using less. You don’t need a huge amount and what I love about it is that it’s a rich cream that rinses clean so perfect for use in the shower in the morning. When I’m doing an evening cleanse, I always remove with a cloth as I wear SPF and want to make sure I am removing it properly.
The value of this range is superb and in my opinion great quality. I have tried many cleansers over the years, I always think a cleanser is a good way to test a new range, if they can get their cleansers right then generally other products follow. In fact I was so impressed with the Rose that the day I tried it, I went and ordered the Neroli cleanser as well.
Superfacialist Rose Hydrate Calming Creamy Cleanser is £7.99 for 150ml and is available from http://www.boots.com.
