I am a big fan girl when it comes to Super Facialist and I don’t understand why people don’t talk about the brand more. They are a lovely little gem within the high street beauty selection. Super Facialist (used to be Super Facialist by Una Brennan until Una Brennan, a well-know London facialist, decided to step back from the brand and focus on her clientelle) has quite a tight range but they seem to be very much in tune what the modern skin needs and have a very smart, carefully curated selection. I am already in love with the Rose Hydrate and Vitamin C Brighten products but they offer a Retinol, Salicylic Acid, Neroli line too.
Only recently I discovered that they have come out with a new Hyaluronic Acid Firming line (a cleanser, a serum, an eye cream, day cream, night cream, neck and chest cream) in Boots so without hesitation I went for their cleanser to try it. Here are the details:
What it is: an anti-ageing gel-like foaming cleanser with Calcium, Copper, Mango seed oil, Sunflower seed oil, Vitamin E loaded beads, polysaccharide and Hyaluronic Acid.
What it does: cleanses, has firming qualities and hydrates.
Who it is for: I can see this working more for oily, normal and combination skins.
Packaging: practical tube, easy to handle because the formulation is not too runny, fresh white-blue design.
How to use it: apply it morning and night on damp skin, gently massage it in and wipe it off with lukewarm water and a flannel. I would use this as a second cleanse at night or a morning cleanse. I wouldn’t use this to remove my makeup. (They offer alternatives for that – the Vitamin C cleansing oil and the Rose Hydrate cream cleanser).
How it worked for me: this cleanser is pleasantly light and refreshing in the morning, the Vitamin E beads bursting on the skin is a nice experience and I love the fresh scent too. Most days I followed it with a super-hydrating skin care routine and added my The Ordinary HA serum too for an extra plumping effect which seemed to work really well together.
If you are concerned about Sulphates, however, this might not be for you, it is at second place on the ingredient list but never mind, the Rose Hydrate or the Vitamin C cleanser is an excellent alternative for you within the brand.
Value for money: great as all Super Facialist products, you get 150ml for £8.99
It is exclusively available in Boots and Boots online.
