The Super Facialist by Una Brennan – Tea Flower Deep Clean Pore Purifying Clay Mask

all that slap allthatslap

The Super Facialist range is a new range of skincare product created by the super experienced and well known Una Brennan. This range is divided into three regimes – Hydrate/Rose, Deep Clean/Tea Flower and Firming/Neroli and there are a total of sixteen products.  Not all of them have been released yet, a few like this mask are available now, the rest are released in August. The line is sold in Boots stores.

Here is a picture of some of the items in the range:

 
What I think is great is that the whole range suitable for all skin types even the most sensitive skins and all Super Facialist products are free from mineral oils/petrochemicals, animal ingredients and synthetic colours and not tested on animals – all pluses if you ask me!
I bought the Face Mask to try and here are my thoughts on it!
Summary:
Mask costs £8.99 for 125ml
Sold in Boots stores and online
Smells gorgeous and not over powering
Not to heavy in texture – spreads easily
Effective and pleasant to use
4/5

This is what Super Facialist claims:

“Clear your skin of dirt, excessive oils and toxins which lead to breakouts with this Pore Purifying Clay Mask.

It contains Salicylic Acid proven to help unclog congested skin and oil-absorbing Dead Sea Mud rich in magnesium, calcium, potassium and iron for the perfect detox facial at home.

Avocado oil rich in Vitamins A, D and E with Acacia Honey further help skin rebalance itself to reveal a clearer, refreshed-looking complexion.”

Review:
Firstly this smells gorgeous, refreshing scent with herbal undertones. Never smelt a mask like this before, its just amazing and you have to smell this, even if you dont want to buy it! Fragrance comes up quite high on the list which may bother some people (not me).
This mask is a lot lighter in texture than any of the clay masks I have tried before, making it easy to spread on your face. As it dries it tightens like any other clay mask. I also feel a slight little tingle but nothing uncomfortable.

You leave this on for 5 minutes and then wash off with warm water. As its not as thick as a regular clay mask its easier to wash off.
Once I have dried my face my skin feels really clean, very soft and highly refreshed! I then apply my night serum or Argan oil. This is a lovely pampering treatment and its recommended that you use it twice a week.
I had a painful spot under the surface and the mask bought it to a head so it really does work to draw out impurities and clarify. I have used it 3 times in total now and I like it more and more every time I use it! Impressive.
This mask is a pleasure to use and an all round effective and great product!
Ingredients:
Aqua (Water), Kaolin, Silt, Cetearyl alcohol, Glyceryl stearate, Polysorbate 60, Sorbitan stearate, Butyrospermum parkii (Shea butter), Mel (Honey), Persea gratissima (Avocado) oil, Phenethyl alcohol, Citrus aurantium dulcis (Sweet orange) peel oil, Citrus aurantium amara (Bitter orange) oil, Canaga odorata (Ylang ylang) flower oil, Parfum (Fragrance), Maltodextrin, Caprylyl glycol, PEG-20 stearate, Xanthan gum, Coco-glucoside, Citric acid, Salicylic acid, Glycerin, Equisetum arvense (Horsetail) extract, Nasturtium officinale (Watercress) flower/leaf extract, Urtica dioica (Nettle) extract, Sambucus nigra (Elderflower) flower extract, Potassium sorbate, Sodium benzoate, Amyl cinnamal, Benzyl benzoate, Benzyl salicylate, Cinnamyl alcohol, Geraniol, Hexyl cinnamal, Limonene, Linalool, Dipropylene glycol
I really like this however, compared to other clay masks out there, this could be a little expensive and out of some girls price range. Having said that its much cheaper than something like the Murad Clarifying Mask which is not as effective as this!
However, having said that its great quality, lovely ingredients and given that its something you use a couple of times a week as opposed to daily, one tube of this will last quite a long time.
I am now keen to try more products from the Super Facialist range, and when I do try them I will be writing a review of them for sure.
There are a few products like this mask out now, and the rest of the range will be launched in August – so later this week we can all sample them!

Thanks for reading, Grace xx

  • [...] I love face masks, as you will know if you are a regular on the blog! I cant get enough of them and I tend to go for clay masks as I have acne and need help to clear my blemishes. This mask seemed to be just right, and its rather good. It smells really really nice and it has a great consistency. Its thick but not hard to spread and a little goes a long way. I do think this is a good mask, it helped to draw impurities from my skin and made my skin feel soft and pampered but the price is steep in my opinion. You can find similar masks for a lower price and that is why I would not buy this again. A clay mask I am loving is the Una Brennan mask I reviewed last week- you can see that review here. [...]

  • [...] results – the Herbalife one reviewed here and my current favourite from Uni Brennan, reviewed here are much more effective and not to mention a lot cheaper [...]
