Double Cleansing 101

Is it worth it? – you bet!

Double cleansing is a thing. We know, we know, it takes time, but it’s an important step to keep your skin happy and healthy (and even absorb your other products effectively.)



You wouldn’t shower and wash your body with your clothes still on, so why would you wash your face with your makeup still on?! Double-cleansing works in the same way.

Put simply, it’s a two-step process. The first involves removing basically everything that is sitting on your face at the end of the day – makeup, pollution, dirt, debris, even sunscreen. Reach for a makeup remover like Micellar Water or Cleansing Balm.


The second step then allows your cleanser (Gel or Creme) to do its job (properly), by deeply cleansing your pores and picking up any leftover residue the first cleanse may have missed (yes we are talking about the foundation left on the towel when drying your face).


The end result? Skin that is gloriously clean and ready to absorb your next skincare products. A stellar cleansing routine means that you’re set up for (skincare) success, enhancing the treatments you are applying after.
