Una Brennan is a Norn Iron girl done good: she’s recognised as one of the best facialists around. Now based in London, she has massaged the skin and squeezed the blackheads of the great and the good as a celebrity facialist.
So it was only a matter of time really before she launched her own range. But is it any good?
Well I was dying to try the cleanser which has been heralded as the star product in the range – and I’ve given it a good whirl for you. For me it’s a no brainer. If you like creamy cleansers – like Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish – then this will be right up your alley.
Rose Hydrate is a rich creamy cleanser that removes makeup as well as cleansing effectively, and if you use it with a muslin cloth or facecloth you’ll boost its effectiveness really well. Shea and Cocoa butter along with Marshmallow are all softening and moisturising ingredients which make this gentle – the hydration is particularly suited for dry skin. It’s marketed as a sensitive skin cleanser so check out the list of ingredients below to make sure that there’s nothing that’s likely to irritate yours.
And the cons? Well it smells kind of old lady. There’s a distinct bang of Yardley about it because of the very strong scent of roses (the clue may have been in the name) so some of you won’t like the fragrance. There’s been a lot of hype about this range too but it just didn’t blow me away.
I’m sorry. I’m going to damn with faint praise. It’s grand. Nothing more, nothing less, any hot cloth cleanser will do the same job.
