Super Facialist by Úna Brennan: double cleanse method
Úna Brennan, “elusive beautician to the stars” has done it again and by “it” we mean changed the way we look at skincare. With the launch of her new skincare line, Super Facialist by Úna Brennan which includes 16 products exclusively sold at Boots, we are re-introduced to the double cleansing method.
While double cleansing isn’t something we haven’t heard of before, Úna’s line proves just how effective the methodology is. Simply washing your face twice a day isn’t enough to achieve beautiful skin. It never has been and never will be.
Here’s why: there are two types of dirt that clog up pores, oil-based such as make-up and oxidised sebum (your skin’s own oil) and water-based such as sweat. In most cases, after washing routines a layer of make-up and dirt is still left behind on the face, which continues to block pores and ultimately, deems the process useless. Anything applied afterwards such as serums cannot penetrate the surface and you are left frustrated and discouraged without understanding why.
Now that you know the reasons, no more excuses. It’s time to get double smart about your skin. Úna Brennan’s skincare line isn’t only affordable, but also does the work for you by laying out exactly what you’ll need.
First, start with the Miracle Makeover Facial Oil (30ml and £14.99). For some, using oil on the skin is something they fear, especially those prone to oily skin. However, oil isn’t going to hurt you but help you by working to remove all of the dirt and dead skin found on the face. Oil leaves the skin feeling smooth, but most importantly, clean, the right way.
“Cleansing oils are the best way to get rid of all traces of the day on skin, including make-up and sunscreens. Used as a pre-cleanse for the skin, a cleansing oil will help dissolve all the oil that has hardened with impurities and found itself stuck in your pores,“ Brennan said.
Second, apply the Calming Creamy Cleanser (150ml and £7.99). The combined efforts will leave your skin feeling healthy, balanced, moisturised and fresh while at the same time, oxygenating the tissues leaving a vibrant glow.
Finally, results you’ll love.
Úna offers different types of oils and cleansers to choose from, such as the Deep Clean/Tea Flower, Hydrate/Rose and Firming/Neroli. In addition, Úna’s line also consists of scrubs, masks, night creams and more.
