Instead of my usual posts which pretty much stand alone, I thought it would be fun to do a little series this week which follows products which I use on a daily basis. My skincare regime is one of the few parts of my day where I use a complete set of products, so I thought it would be a good place to start!
When I was away in New York, I was in desperate need of a product which would cleanse my skin of the impurities that walking around a city tend to throw at you, which is where Shu Uemura‘s new cleansing oil comes in. View Post
I’m going to go out on a limb and say I’m not the only one who struggles with early mornings. View Post
With all of the wonderful summer weather we have been enjoying, I thought I would bring news of the summeriest new skincare range out there now.
Super Facialist by Una Brennan has released an entire new range which focuses on boosting skin radiance and adding a much coveted glow through the use of advanced Vitamin C+. The details are all very science-y so to condense it down, just look forward to skin which is brightened and replenished after using the products.
I tried the Skin Renew Cleansing Oil, which is part one of a dual stage cleanser – you follow it with an exfoliator from the range – and I have to say, I am pretty hooked! To use it, you simply pour a little from the bottle into the palms of your hands, rub together and apply to your face, then I add a teeny-tiny little bit of water which then turns the oil light and milky, then use a clean, warm flannel to remove any makeup and impurities which can languish on the skin. The oil feels wonderfully rich and luxurious, yet once I have washed it off, there doesn’t feel like there is any type of film left behind – just clean, soft skin, which is left smelling faintly of oranges – blissful in the hot and sticky weather!
I am such a fan of the Super Facialist range, I can’t believe just how reasonably priced the products are – especially with how expensive they feel when used! The Cleansing Oil is priced at £10.99 and I just can’t wait to try the exfoliator and eye cream from the range!

I am always pretty dubious when a product self certifies as a ‘miracle,’ but NUDE’s offering is pretty impressive! The mask contains exfoliating particles as well as some much lauded AHAs which are designed to slough off any icky outer layers of skin.They warn that the mask will tingle when applied, and yes, it did a little, but it wasn’t anywhere near unbearable. The smell is light, and reminiscent of marzipan, but it’s pleasant. After the recommended 5 mins (or maybe slightly more) the mask had dried and washed off easily.
My skin felt super smooth afterwards – velvetly soft, and my skin tone showed huge improvement – it went from a little blotchy to uniform in colour. Moisturizer soaked in super quick, and my face felt the benefits all day long. Not only this, but even the day after using, my makeup applied better – smoother and more evenly.
The price is a little expensive, but the product holds up – you are only meant to use it once to twice a week, and only a little is needed at a time, but it does make a huge difference!
Along with the Miracle Mask, I also tried NUDE’s Cleansing Oil. I have tried similar products from brands such as Shu Uemura, and I have to say, NUDE’s offering is up amongst the best. It is thicker than the other oils I have tried, and even after washing, my face felt moisturized, as well as free of makeup.
Both products are great! They do the job they claim, whilst the natural ingredients are always a bonus!
The Miracle Mask is priced at £38
The Cleansing Oil is priced at £28
