What is Double Cleansing?


You may hear or be advised to double cleanse as part of your skincare routine. It is quite self-explanatory in the fact that you use two cleansers, instead of one.

For double cleansing you can use our oil-based Reviving Cleansing Cream and Brilliant Balm or use them alongside another cleanser such as a milk, gel or liquid based cleanser. The main thing about double cleansing is using two different cleansers as they have different ingredients and do different things. You can use the same one if you wish though – it really is personal preference.

Think of the first cleanse as removing spf, make-up, dirt and grime and then second cleanse as the massage stage, working the product into the skin and getting rid of any leftover unwanted product and grime build up.

When cleansing, make sure you are not rubbing the skin or dragging it. If you feel as though your skin feels sensitive from doing a double cleanse then stick to just one, as it’s important not to irritate the skin.

Double cleansing is something you want to do in the evening, to remove daily grime, spf, and makeup, ensuring that your skin is a clean slate for your next skincare steps. In the morning, one cleanse is enough to get your skin ready for the day.
