SUPER FACIALIST VITAMIN C+ SKIN RENEW CLEANSING OIL

Super Facialist is one of those brands which manage pull off feeling high-market whilst still being friendly to your purse. You can find their products stocked anywhere from Amazon and Boots, to online retailers and even your local supermarket.

Initially recommended to me by a friend and fellow skincare enthusiast, the Vitamin C+ Brighten Skin Renew Cleansing Oil isn’t my first run at a Super Facialist product, it is however by far my favourite.

Aiming to cleanse the skin, remove makeup and rehydrate, this cleanser is packed to the brim with oils (sunflower seed, olive, grapeseed, sweet orange, passionflower, rosehip and cucumber). You apply onto dry skin, massage to melt away makeup and grim, then follow up with warm water turning it into a milky lotion and wash off.

Clinching in those coveted antioxidants, the oil is also infused with vitamin c aiming to brighten and renew the skin. However it is worth noting, Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate (the form of vit c used in this cleanser) is quite far down the ingredient list, so it’s not going to be the most potent of vitamin c products you can use, but it’s a nice addition to your skincare regime all the same.

THE GOOD

  • The quality of the product you get, both oil and the packaging itself, are fantastic for the price. Retailing from the £8 mark for 100ml, there’s no reason not to give this a try if you’re looking for a new cleanser to test drive.

  • Thanks to the abundance of fruity and earthy oils, the scent is gorgeous and refreshing. My skin doesn’t feel stripped after use, and it hits the spot when I’m looking for some deep hydration.

  • The texture is on the heavier side for an oil, which is ideal if you’re searching for something a little more hard-working. It spreads easily, I found no issues cleaning off and found the product emulsified beautifully with water ensuring no residue is left.

  • My skin looks noticeably brighter and nourished after using it. This is usually part of my double cleansing ritual at night, however it also preps the skin wonderfully making a fantastic makeup base, so I will also use in the morning if my skin is feeling particularly dry.

THE BAD

  • I personally wouldn’t reach for this to tick vitamin c off my skincare list. As mentioned previously, the form of vit c used in this product is very low down the ingredients list. I wouldn’t expect it to be highly effective.

THE VERDICT

Did I like it? Yes. The price is fantastic, but that’s just a plus - the product itself is also impressive. I would be willing to pay more if I had to, but no one tell that to Super Facialist HQ…

Price? From £11 for 100ml as the standard price, although can usually be found cheaper if you do a bit of online snooping.

Would I repurchase? I would be hard up to find a reason not to.
