Double Cleansing is something which I have done for years, thanks to the advice of skincare queen Caroline Hirrons, which is why when she collaborated with Pixi to release a product dedicated to the Double Cleanse, I knew I had to get on board.
Before I talk about the product – for those of you who may not know, Double Cleansing is something you do in your evening skincare routine. As the name suggests you cleanse your face twice, the first time to get rid of the grim from the day and the second to give your skin the nourishment and vitamins it means. I usually use a micellar water and then a cleansing balm such as the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel.
The beauty of the Double Cleanse is that you get two cleansers for the price of one. The first step is the cleansing balm and the second step comes in the form of the cream cleanser.
My favourite part of the Double Cleanse is the Cleanser – I applied it for the first time and fell in love with it almost instantly. The cleansing oil is extremely nourishing, breaks down all of your make up without harming the skin and is not overly fragrant which I enjoy. You can really feel the effects of the Camelia Oil which helps to break down dirt and pollution from the day.
The cleansing cream took me a little bit longer to get use too – mainly because I have not used a cleansing cream before and wasn’t sure what to expect, however I have to say I adore it. It is light, doesn’t foam up on the face and gives your skin an extra cleanse. As it is a cream cleanser – it can feel like a moisturiser when you are applying it which I wasn’t expecting but also means it is soft and gentle on the skin – perfect if you have sensitive skin.
If you want a fuss free, gentle cleanser, I would definitely recommend the Pixi Double Cleanse. Retailing at £20, you really do get more bang for your buck. It is gentle and would work on even on the most sensitive skin. Caroline is one of the very few people I will trust when it comes to skincare without any hesitation and both Caroline and Pixi hit the nail on the head with the Double Cleanse. If you are a fan of something like the Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm, you will adore this.
