Two To Try: The Superfacialist Rose Hydrate Range

All you dry skinned gals out there will love 
these two products I'm about to share......

Superfacialist rose hydrate mask & oil


........

I received both of these in my stocking last Christmas and it was my first time to try anything from Superfacialist by Una Brennan. I fell in love with both of them and I've since been trying out a few more of her products. Una Brennan, you have a new fan!

Superfacialist Rose Hydrate Intense Moisture Mask - €11.99 -
As you all know by now my skin is dry and sensitive so I just had  to try this due to it's amazing claims to "boost skin moisture levels and radiance with Superfacialist thirst-quenching intense moisture mask developed even for the most sensitive skins".

It has a very thick creamy consistency and I don't think I've ever come across a mask with such a thick consistency. I'm not complaining though because it provides great moisture to the skin leaving it feeling smooth and soft. Also, my makeup applies easier whenever I use this - Love! It also feels incredibly luxurious - it definitely rivals some of the high end masks out there.

However, I do have to criticise the scent as I just think it's awful. I had imagined it being a light delicate rose scent but in fact it was quite strong, artificial and sickly sweet. Not good! It was very overpowering when applied but thanks be to god, it didn't linger on the skin.

The recommended application time is 5 minutes but I normally leave masks on for 10 so I decided to try leaving this on for an extra few minutes. That turned out to be a bad idea because after about 6 or 7 minutes it started to sting. Oops! So now I just leave it on for 5 minutes and it's all good! In my opinion it doesn't really need longer than 5 minutes as it's really moisturising.

Overall, it has a really thick formula which is easy to apply and wash off, it leaves the skin feeling smooth, soft and plump and it's affordable. Despite the scent it's a really lovely product!


Superfacialist Rose Hydrate Micracle makeover Facial Oil - €19.99 -
This oil can be used as a pre-cleanse as well as adding a few drops to your moisturiser. My preferred method is using it as a pre-cleanse because you get the most out of it's hydrating properties that way. It's really easy to use: all I do is rub a bit between my two hands to warm it up and then massage it onto my face, followed by wiping away with a warm flannel. It's suitable to use on the eyes but I tend to remove my eye makeup first with micellar water as I don't like using oils around my eye area.

It rapidly dissolves makeup leaving my skin feeling clean and soft. This stuff has transformed both the appearance and feel of my skin. Whenever my skin is dry or dehydrated I get awful dry patches and dehydrated lines but since incorporating this into my routine I don't have that problem anymore. It also makes my skin look a lot more radiant and I've had less breakouts. It doesn't leave a greasy residue, isn't harsh on the skin and doesn't cause me to breakout.  Unlike the mask, this scent isn't that strong. It smells lovely with a light hint of rose - No overpowering artificial scents here!

My only issue is that it's quite dear for such a small bottle. However, in saying that, it does last a long time. I've been using it almost everyday for almost six months and I still have a tiny bit left. That's pretty impressive!

This is a great product for the popular 'double cleanse' and I'd recommend it through and through if you have dry skin!

Overall I loved using both of these products! They left my skin looking and feeling amazing. And I'll definitely be trying more from this range!

What are your favourite hydrating skincare products?

Love,
Cliona xx

  1. I love the oil! I've used it as a pre-cleanse before and it left my skin so soft! I do agree that it's pretty pricey, though. I've just started using Superdrug's Vitamin E Moisturising Cream and I really like that, it's rich without being greasy :) xx

    1. It's amazing, isn't it?! I've just picked up the vitamin c cleansing oil so I'm excited to try it!! I've never really been a fan of facial oils but this one has me obsessed with them! I want to try ALL the oils now ;-) That moisturiser sounds lovely! I always find it hard to get a rich moisturiser that isn't greasy. Thanks for the recommendation - I'll have to check it out xx
