I hate to admit it but I’m one of those awful people who takes their face off at night with a makeup wipe. I justify it by thinking ‘It’s got to be better than sleeping with my makeup on right?’. But after following certain beauty bloggers for a while, it makes you want to be better at looking after your skin and I thought this product would be a great place to start.
I’ve tried a couple of Pixi products before, obviously the Glow Tonic and my personal favourite the Glowtion Day Dew moisturiser, so after hearing they were teaming up with Caroline Hirons I knew that this was definitely one to try. The theory behind double cleansing is essentially just using more than one product, no matter what it is, to remove your makeup. Simple.
The Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse is a 2-in-1 jar containing one side of a solid cleaning oil and the other side with a cleansing cream. For me, as someone who isn’t hugely into cleansing, it is so easy having the products right next to each other and not having to fuss around with having to find and use loads of different potions and lotions.
I have literally never used a cleansing oil in my life. As someone with oily skin, they’re not usually the type of products I go for. But this really is a dream. You only need a very small amount and it just massages so smoothly into your skin and your makeup just melts away – like magic! Then onto the cream, it’s a really nice consistency. Just thick enough to scoop out without feeling too thick and heavy. Cooling, soothing and hydrating is how I would describe it and my skin really did feel clean and fresh once I was done.
Overall, I really did like the process of double cleansing and a cleansing oil is an absolute revelation. Is it good enough to tear me away from my much-loved makeup wipes though, who knows?
