What Is Double Cleansing?

And should I be doing it? Two very excellent questions which, do not worry, we’ve got the answers to.

First up, what exactly is double cleansing?

Exactly as you’d imagine, it is the process of cleaning your face not once, but twice. For some people, that wear SPF every day, or heavy, waterproof makeup, double cleansing can be brilliant. Even if you just choose to do so occasionally, perhaps after evenings when you’re wearing more makeup than you usually do. If minimal makeup is more your thing, or you feel like your current cleanser removes all of your makeup without leaving behind any dirt or buildup, then we’d recommend you stick to what’s working for you.

Down to try double cleansing? Here’s how to do it right…

First up, removing that makeup. Enter, our Light Work Rosehip Cleansing Oil. Remove SPF and stubborn makeup (yes, even waterproof mascara) by massaging cleansing oil into dry skin. Add some water to lift off makeup – you’ll notice the texture will become milky – then rinse it all away. Free from alcohol and harsh irritants often found in makeup removers, our clever formula means even the most sensitive skin can now have easy, powerful removal too. No stings attached.

Next up, a calming, moisturising cleanser – and for that our Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser has you covered. Pat face dry with a towel after makeup removal, then massage cream cleanser into skin, breathing in that beautiful rose scent as you go. Wet the dual-effect cloth and use it to remove cleanser. The terry side is best for sensitive eyes while the muslin side is best for gentle exfoliation.
