I’ve had a pretty standard evening cleansing routine for a while now consisting of micellar water for makeup removal, then the Philosophy Purity cleanser to wash. It’s served me well for a while and will continue to.. I have tried many cleansing products/routines which I have loved but nothing has really tempted me as much as this. I know I’ve been lazy in not introducing a more luxurious/nourishing cleanse into my life whether it be for one or two nights a week so this is a very welcome addition to my routine, especially with winter here in Australia around the corner my skin will go dry so this is great for that. Having said that this is great for all skin types.
I only received this double cleansing product in the mail from an ASOS order a few days ago and have used it for 3 consecutive days. I have been so blown away by how gorgeous this is I just had to come on here and tell you guys! Plus it’s still a fairly new product on the market, it needs to be shouted from the rooftops!
Pixi is a skin care brand which admittedly I have not yet tried anything from, but I’m thinking their Glow Tonic is going to be ordered tonight while I relax with my glass of wine as I’ve heard so many great things about it! Caroline Hirons is a skin care guru/blogger/YouTuber who is just so lovely to follow I really respect her as a beauty guru because she knows her freakin stuff when it comes to skin care! I believe Pixi contacted Caroline to do a collaboration and with a lot of hard work to get it perfect, this is what Caroline came up with and she did not disappoint..
Double cleansing isn’t a new thing, it’s something that’s recommended to be a part of anyone’s cleansing routine, especially if you wear makeup! I have double cleansed in many ways, from using oil based cleansers such as the Clarins pure melt or Clinique take the day off balm, followed by a face wash, to using micellar water or cream cleansers again followed by whatever face wash I have (it’s been Philosophy Purity for an age now but it works!)
This however is so brilliant because it’s the first of it’s kind where they’ve combined two different types of cleansers, a solid oil for step one, and a cleansing cream for step two, in a pretty ‘ying-yang’ style pot! How perfect is that?
How to use it
Ok, so you start by scooping a ‘coin sized’ amount out of the hard cleansing oil, smear it your hands once and then work it into your makeup. This will instantly lift all makeup be it light or stubborn. The true test for me was how it melted my mascara as I like to wear a few coats! It dissolved the mascara along with everything else perfectly. You then grab a wet flannel and gently wipe it all away. Now when your skin is moist, you take the same amount of the cream cleanser and work that into your skin to remove any excess oil cleanser, clean a bit deeper and to really nourish the skin! This step is then followed again by the wet flannel and that’s it, you’re done!
I absolutely love cleansing in this way as it feels like such a calming, luxurious night-time ritual and leaves my skin feeling unbelievably smooth and clean I can’t stop touching my face! I always feel so happy with myself when I find something I can add to my all time favourites, I can see me repurchasing this for a long time to come! I will continue to use my trustee Philosophy Purity cleanser in the mornings, but this will definitely be taking its place most evenings. I’m in love!
