A nice combination. Una Brennan Rose Hydrate Oil and Aurelia Miracle Cleanser


So I'm using the Una Brennan Superfacialist Rose Hydrate Miracle Makeover Facial Oil (!!) pretty much every evening. What's not clear with her two oils, despite the inordinately overlong name, is that they are designed as a pre-cleanse. I've been asked if they are suitable as a facial oil - I can't see any reason why not - although I only use it as pre-cleanse. I prefer my treatment facial oils to be slightly thicker - better massage.

It's a strange one the Una Brennan range, I suspect the line is a joint venture with Boots - it's still the only place you can buy it and there is little from Una herself directly online. No website, just reviews from mags/blogs. Having said that - it's a good priced range and the products are for the most part, good.
This oil is great for loosening all makeup before your actual cleanse. 

The Aurelia Miracle Cleanse is a really good follow up cleanser. It has the smell and kick of Cleanse & Polish but leaves the skin much softer and hydrated. It's the product I've used the most whilst trialing Aurelia and I previously reviewed it here.

A lovely twosome.

Stop the press: I was just sent this link by a lovely reader: http://www.superfacialist.co.uk/ Apologies Una!

Una Brennan is available here.

Aurelia is available here.

  1. Una Brennan does have a website for the range, which is strange as it does not come up when you google it! Here it is:

  2. Sounds like a great product. I'm always looking for a good cleansing oil.
    I'm in the US. Am I correct that Hydraluron and Indeed Labs are only sold through Boots? A shame they do not ship to the US.
    Love your blog. I am ordering Liquid Gold today.

    1. Sorry to butt in! Walgreens sells Hydralauron in the U.S, that's where I got my tube =)

      I checked their website just now and they don't seem to have it currently..

      But after a quick search I read they do sell it in some of their stores so keep your eyes peeled.

      Hope this helped!

  3. I've got the Neroli oil from the Una Brennan range, which I adore (very EH-smelling), and 99.9% of the time, I use it as a pre-cleanse. But, occasionally I have used it in the regular facial oil way, and it suits very well. The only thing, for a pre-cleanse, it's fairly expensive; I always wait until it goes on offer.

    Incidentally, I bought the Aurelia cleanser after your first review and am absolutely loving it. It leaves my skin so soft and bright. Definitely looks like it's becoming my go-to summer cleanser.

  5. Haven't tried Unnan Brennan Products and I haven't tried applying facial oil at night, but I might consider doing it for me to know what would be the effect on my face. With this great review, I'm actually thinking that it's a great product, so I should give it a try. Thanks for the review!

  7. I tried the Neroli lifting mask & it was a disaster. Had it on for a couple of minutes and had visible burns. Actually took photos and sent them off to complain. I think I over reacted slightly as it had mostly gone by the morning but I've necer had such a dramatic reaction to anything. To be fair their customer service was fantastic and they said they're adding a warning to the box.

    I love the rose range though. I've used the oil, cleanser and day cream and all are lovely.

    1. Haven't tried the neroli - maybe you're actually allergic to the neroli if you can use the rest?xx

    2. I had the same reaction as did my friend who I passed this onto... it seems when I googled it a lot of bloggers had similar reactions. I THINK its be recalled!

    3. Hello there - Jess, Sharon and Caroline. I used the Neroli lifting mask this evening - and had the same reaction as you. Face turned right, burning sensation…I washed it off and put some Jurlique Calendula cream on top to calm it down. I have the most tolerant, non-sensitive skin on the planet. I can use retin-A, vitamin c serums, glycolics (alternating)...the works, with not so much as a flake or red patch. My skin is made of steel and I'm surprised it reacted so acutely to this. I do think this product is not safe, and there is some high-level skin irritant in it. Boy oh boy -- glad I got it for a good price at TJ Maxx in the US. Take care!

  8. Is the Una Brennan suitable to use on eyes to take of eye make up? I love my EH but would really like to try this as an alternative. Thank you.

  9. Hi, Thank you for the reviews. Was looking for a cream cleanser & thinking of trying pai but I am going to give the Aurelia a shot along with the oil cleanser, but can you please advise me first is this suitable as a morning cleanser on it's own or more suitable as a night time second cleanse. Thank you if you have time to answer :)

  10. Hi Caroline, I posted before requesting a breakdown of your staple (as near as possible) skincare routine. Probably got swallowed in the comments section. I know you're so busy but I'd really appreciate any recommendations for moisturiser and serums for sensitive skin (late 20s). Thanks so much. X

  12. One of the perks of being a woman is to maintain a beautiful face! Ah these products you featured in your post are just the thing that I need to keep my skin soft, smooth and radiant. I think you are using the Rose Hydrate Miracle Makeover Facial Oil right. That should be used in the evening before going to bed to remove all the make-up and help your skin recover. It's good that you've mentioned how reasonably priced these products are, makes me more interested to try them. As for the Aurelia Miracel Cleanse, thanks for sharing its good effects on your skin. This review has helped me a lot in evaluating whether these two products are worth trying or not.

  13. Does anyone know if these brands are available in the USA or Canada? If not, are there any nice equivalents? I love trying out skincare products and would really like to give these a go.

    Thank you! xo

    1. Net-a-porter has Aurelia right now, although the company will ship directly for only 6,50 GBP. Hope that helps.
