Una Brennan Super Facialist daily brightening cleanser

Another #LiveBloggers goody review. This is the Una Brennan Super Facialist daily brightening cleanser (part of the firming regime), which I have been using for over a month.
This is a foaming cleanser, which I have been steering clear from based on the advice of Beauty Mouth after I attended her live clinic at 'The Only Way is Blogging’ earlier this year. That being said, the cleanser does feel nice to use, foams up well and isn't drying. The disappointing thing is that I didn't find that it removed all my makeup with one wash and after double cleansing — another no-no with a foaming cleanser according to Mrs Hirons — my skin did feel dry and tight. I have dry skin anyway, so this may not be an issue for anyone with normal or oily skin, but I would still recommend using a separate makeup remover first.

In terms of the scent, it is pleasant. I'm not going to lie, I have no idea what neroli smells like and the smell of this isn't something I'm guessing that's neroli.
The product says that the cleanser is meant to help to ensure skin is left more youthful-looking and contains antioxidants, a tightening polysaccharide and hyaluronic acid, which in combination, should cleanse, brighten and firm. In terms of the firming properties, I haven't noticed any difference in my skin, but I would want to try out all of the range together before making a comment. My skin has been in very good condition and looking clear and less congested recently and I do believe that this has helped to brighten and I am glad that I have noticed any changes for the worse since using it.

I hadn’t heard of this brand before #LiveBloggers and my first impression from the packaging was that it would be something pricy and difficult to get hold of, but it can be found in Boots for a reasonable £7.99. I am tempted to try out some other products in the range, such as the pre-cleansing oil, which I imagine will be an ideal product to use in combination with this cleanser.

Have you used anything from the range, if so, what do you recommend?
