Acne Skincare Super Facialist

Super Facialist by Una Brennan || MagpieMagpie

I’ve always loved skincare, but over the last couple of years I’ve become more confident in my choices. If you’ve been over to my YouTube channel you’ll know that this year I aim to make more of an effort to share what I use on my skin and how.
 
One brand I’ve been loving over the past 6 months is The Superfacialist by Una Brennan. I have no idea what made me buy it, or even take a chance on new skincare as I hardly ever change what I use. In the past I’ve had some HORROR stories, but as of late my skin has been “good” and I was in the market to try something new. 
 
I was in boots on the hunt when I spotted a new product that was on special. The Superfacilist range by Una Brennan. There is a great selection of products for all skin types, but of course I was attracted straight away to the Salicylic Acid Anti Blemish! 
 
I really liked their packaging too. It’s white, which I usually try to stay away from coz I get makeup EVERYWHERE but, its that type of plastic that can be easily wiped clean. There something about the clean, clear and crisp lettering I really like too.

The product is a clear gel with not very much fragrance, it does smell but I can’f really figure out what it smells like.  I love the lack of a strong smell coz my nose can be very fussy, if it doesn’t like the smell it seems to get stuck in there and can give me a migraine! So yea, I like the smell / not strong smell!
 
It lathers up well and leave my pre-cleansed skin spotless!
 
I don’t ever just wash my face, I always pre-cleanse! After I’ve removed as much of my make-up as I can, I wet my face and lather up about a pea sized amount of the facewash and then just go crazy! It desolves away anything that is left of my face (except any barry m mascara, they are a nightmare to get off!) I love the feeling when I use it and I LOVE how my skin feels after it. It leaves my skin so soft and smooth and it just feels amazing. I can for 100% say that it helps with my acne. My blemishes clear up much faster and don’t seem to be as aggressive.

All I can say is I’m so glad I reached for these products and they will 100% be a staple in my skincare routine. As Ive said before I have very sensitive skin and now that I’m on the Minocycline again it tend to be even more sensitive, but my skin just loves this product. If like me you have adult acne I’d encourage you to at least try out this product. It comes in just under £10, I tend to get mine in Boots, but sometimes if you are lucky they can be on special.
 
Let me know if you’ve tried out any of the Super Facialist stuff and what you thought! Or even if there is a product you think I’d like that I may not have tried before.

The Body Shop: Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner

TheBodyShopTeaTreeToner
Let’s talk toner. Toner is a crucial step in my fight against acne. The one I’m using at the moment is The Body Shop: Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner. It comes in a 250ml bottle which usually lasts me about 3-4 months depending on how sparingly I use it. It smell like tea tree, it’s a water consistency with a sort of clay like substance at the bottom that you must shake in before use, the texture then changes to a sort of foam; and finally it’s green in colour.

A good face wash is a very important and key in the fight against acne. Over the past few months I have been trying many but the first I want to talk about is Simple Oil Balancing exfoliating wash.

It has a thick gel like texture with fine exfoliating granules in it.

I really like this product. I always found it really difficult to find a good cleanser / make-up remover as they are all usually creams. I never realised it until I started this blog but I have a real issue with creams. I don’t seem to like them very much, whether it be a cleanser or a wash of even a face cream, I can be very very fussy about a product. So when I saw this product I HAD to try it.

If you have acne it’s super important that you use a face mask once a week. I know it doesn’t seem like the best idea as you want to hide your blemishes but the mask will help bring everything out so you can remove them naturally.
