The Double Cleanse.


I've been double cleansing for a good year now, thanks to the skincare guru that is Caroline Hirons. I can honestly say my skin hasn't even been happier than it is now - I know it's not just down to the DC but I'm sure it has improved my skin a huge amount. 

I begin my cleanse using the No7 Beautiful Skin Melting Gel Cleanser. This is the perfect consistency for removing make up and leaving my skin ready for my second cleanse. This goes on as a thick gel but the second it comes into contact with water it turns into a milky cleanser. It reminds me a lot of the Clarins Melting Gel Cleanser, I think this is a great dupe.

For my second cleanse I use the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish.  I've recently been converted back to C&P and I'm now wondering why I even moved away from it. I love the creaminess of this cleanser and how therapeutic massaging it into my skin is - plus it smells amazing fresh. I think this is the perfect second step in my cleanse as the C&P really gives my skin that much needed nourishment without stripping my skin.

I've raved about the Sarah Chapman Cleansing Mitts before, but this is what I use to remove my cleansers and what I wash my face with everyday. I love the ease of these mitts, they are lovely to use and leave me feeling super clean. I tend to remove my make up or first cleanser with the 'flannel' side and the C&P with the softer 'muslin cloth' side.

If you don't already DC, give it a go for a few weeks - you might be surprised at the results!

Do you double cleanse?

  5. I don't often double cleanse but I think I should start! I like the No7 Cleanser too but have been using my Merumaya Cleansing Balm a lot this year.

  6. I cannot get away with not double cleansing anymore! My skin FREAKS out if I don't do it haha. It just goes to show how much you need to do it.
