Apologies for the lack of posts in recent days – I’m on vacation in the Hamptons and by the time I get in at night I am so completely wiped that my laptop doesn’t even get flipped open.
I love it here, and I thought it would be the perfect excuse to try some new products while I was away, and one of the ones I have been reaching for the most is Una Brennan’s Miracle Makeover Oil. This little bottle combines many of my favourite things – rose, oil and cleanser (don’t judge!). This oil is something I hadn’t tried before – a pre cleansing treatment. Before applying my regular cleanser I just wet my face and pump some of this thick oil into my palms and smooth onto my face. Unlike other cleansing oils I have tried, this doesn’t change into a milky liquid. Instead, the rose scent remains, and I have a relax for five minutes while I let it sink in. This is heavenly in the bath. I then use a hot flannel to remove and follow with my cleanser. After this voila! Skin which feels completely cleansed but without a hint of that stripped feeling.
The smell is heavenly, as is the super-thick consistency. I have to say – for the price point this is one of the most luxurious feeling oils, and the smell is really beautiful. As well as using it as a pre cleansing treatment, the oil can be applied to cleansed skin as a moisture treatment. I haven’t used it in this way yet, but I can imagine it will be just as good! Since I have been using the oil, my skin is definitely more balanced, and there are less impurities too. This is a product which I will be running out to replace!
The Miracle Makeover Oil is priced at £14.99
