Review: Superfacialist Vitamin C+ Brighten Skin Renew Cleansing Oil

It's no secret that I love using an oil based cleanser to remove my makeup, they just get the job done without  stripping the skin of moisture. I've repurchased The Body Shop's Silky Camomile Cleansing Oil many times and it's one of my firm favourites, however when seeing Vivianna Does Makeup rave continuously about the Superfacialist By Una Brennan Vitamin C+ Brighten Skin Renew Cleansing Oil (£10.99/200ml) I really wanted to see what this one was like.


I actually really love this cleanser, it gets the job done nicely, I apply this to a dry face and massage it in and it gets to work by breaking down the makeup, I add a bit of water to my face to make a milky lather and then massage some more before rinsing all the makeup off and voila, no more makeup! I then follow through with my La Roche-Posay cleanser to clean my face now that my makeup have been removed. Although this can take off eye makeup, I usually like to use my Nivea Daily Essential Double Effect Eye Makeup Remover to remove my eyeliner and mascara since I don't like to rub my eyes too much.
There was a few differences that I noticed about this cleanser, firstly it was slightly more oilier than I am used to, which is good because you can use less. Next, this bottle is quite compact and travel friendly, it has a lid that closes and filter that stops you from applying the entire bottle on your face. Lastly, the smell is amazing, it's like oranges - really nice and citrusy, it makes you enjoy the process of cleansing your skin. 


What I really like about this product is that it brightens my skin too, it's nice to have the additional feature of Vitamin C+ that actively works while I am cleansing my face and that's what makes it unique to me as opposed to others that I have used. 
I'm also going to India next month and because of how travel friendly this item is, I will definitely take it with me because I know it won't leak in my luggage! I would rate this the same as The Body Shop in terms of result however because of the additional features such as the brightening and the packaging, this one is definitely my new favourite!
What do you use to take your makeup off? I would love to know! :)

  3. I've never tried this cleansing oil but I also enjoy these kind of cleansers so will definitely try it in the future. I've used the DHC Cleansing Oil before and loved it. x
