By now, I’m sure you’re all familiar with Caroline Hirons – a skin care expert, trained aesthetician and social media phenomenon, who recently teamed up with Pixi Beauty to release ‘Double Cleanse‘.
Those who follow her channel religiously will know how much of an advocate she is of a good double-cleanse, and for those who don’t, and are still to discover the benefits of pre-cleansing… your world is about to be turned upside down.
Gone are the days when it would be socially acceptable to use a makeup wipe, splash your face with water and accompany it with a pump of the cheapest foaming cleanser you could find in the skincare aisle of the local drugstore… it’s time to say goodbye to ‘morning panda eyes’ and hello to a SUPER fresh face.
Pixi Beauty + Caroline Hirons’ Double Cleanser is a two-step product, one half is a Solid Cleansing Oil and the other half is a Cleansing Cream.
The Cleansing Oil has been solidified, which is something I’ve never really seen before; I quite like the convenience and no-mess approach this provides.
When scooping a small amount of the product onto my hands and rubbing onto the face, it really reminded me of the slightly greasy but natural texture of applying Coconut Oil to the skin, with the added benefit of some high-performance ingredients.
Once removed with a wet flannel, I then applied a layer of the Cleansing Cream to my face, using a face cloth to remove this also.
The cream felt really luxurious and nourishing; it leaves my complexion extremely soft, all thanks to a combination of skin-loving Allantoin, Aloe Vera Powder and Glycerin, among a selection of other moisture-rich ingredients (which I, for the most part, cannot pronounce).
The finished result?
A face which feels BEYOND clean.
And as for long-term results, I’ve definitely noticed the rebalancing effects that this product delivers through regular application; my skin feels smooth and imperfections are softened.
Obviously, I have far too many (in the hundreds) of cleansers to mix and match, but for now, this skin treat will maintain permanent residence among my daily skincare stash.
