Super Facialist Una Brennan Skincare Oils

I have been using Una Brennan Skincare since a while now, her Face Masks in particular but nothing has impressed me as much as her facial oils. Oh my god, these are holy grail. You need and you must indulge in my fellow skincare geeks. Especially if you have confused, combination-dehydrated skin like myself. These will not dry out your skin out or cause a breakout - they are simply ingenious!

The Rose Hydrate Miracle Makeover Facial Oil is my favourite. Containing carrot oils, avocado oil and omega fatty acid, its super moisturising without causing any breakouts at all. May be because of it's two in one purpose which also makes it a cleansing oil? I mean you'll hardly come across cleansing oils that will break you out. Although it works great to remove make-up as a double cleanse step, I prefer it to use as a face oil after cleansing as it helps skin feel soothe and calm. Bliss! 

The Vitamin C Cleansing Oil as previously raved about by Caroline Hirons is surreal for the price it retails at. It puts high end, cult-favourite, hyped up cleansers to shame by it's simple efficiency and brilliant results. I hardly come across facial cleansers that I repurchase. Being a beauty blogger, constant road testing is a part and parcel of my life. But when I do decide to repurchase, it has to be bloody brilliant to make a place in my skincare basket when there's a pile of cleansers in storage to go through. You're a survivor, you clever clever cleansing oil. 

Lastly, a special mention goes to Neroli Firming Lift and Hydrate Facial Oil. Containing Borage Oil and Rosehip, it works hard at banishing those pesky fine lines and giving the complexion a supple boost and a plumper look. No dry skin and increased brightness helps at battling that prune like ageing look. Working in a similar way to the Rose Hydrate sibling, it can be used as a cleansing oil or a topper upper serum after cleansing. I prefer the latter due to the small size of the bottle which will get used up in a week if I start cleansing my humongous with it...hah! 

Moral of the story. Una Brennan's skincare range is the bomb. Her facial oils, so very aptly named. She must be one heck of a Super Facialist to come out with these genius formula's.

I love using oils as part of my skincare and they both sound beautiful and they probably smell amazing too :o) Xx
