Una Brennan Super Facialist Skin Renew Cleansing Oil

In the past I haven't had the best of luck with cleansing oils. The MAC Cleansing Oil was fine, but a bit pricey and The Body Shop Cleansing Balm and Cleansing Oil just gave me major breakouts. Now rumour has it, this cleansing oil from Una Brennan is like ‘‘the one’’ when it comes to drugstore cleansing oils, so I was very lucky to finally get my hands on one when I went to London in January.

Super Facialist by Una Brennan is overall a very good skincare range. I've heard quite good things about many of their products so I had high hopes that I would fall in love with the Super Facialist Skin Renew Cleansing Oil (£10,99) too.
Now the first thing I was worried about when using this were the breakouts. After using it for a couple of days there were still no spots in sight and even now I still don’t get a lot of breakouts. The ones I do get are more likely caused by all the chocolate I eat than this cleansing oil haha. The scent is very strong and orangey and strangely enough I like it a lot. It reminds me of summer holidays to England when I was little.

The cleansing part is amazing too. That's why I really like cleansing balms and oils in general; they just get the job done very quickly! I take a bit of oil into the palm of my hands, massage it into my skin and rinse it off with a cleansing cloth and warm water. I wouldn't recommend this on your eyes though. At least for someone like me who always uses waterproof mascara, this doesn't work as well. And besides that, I don't really like smearing my entire face with old mascara. Raccoon eyes are more my thing!
After the cleansing oil I use a tiny bit of my F.A.B. cleanser to make sure every single bit of make-up is removed and then I apply some Pixi Glow Tonic on a cotton pad and swipe it over my face. After that whole routine I am left with super clean skin that feels and looks amazing. It's also supposed to be very brightening and give the skin an amazing glow. I am using a lot of other brightening products, so I can't tell if it's because of this oil, but my skin definitely looks more radiant.

This is the first cleansing oil that really works on my skin and of course I have to travel all the way to England to get it. Oh well, at least I have a good excuse to book my next London trip!
