I have a confession to make – I’m a cleanser addict – there are worse things I could be addicted to. I’m not normally one to have a hoard of products – I usually have one item, use it til it’s gone and replace. As I put in my worst blogger post, in the world of make up I have one mascara, one foundation, one blusher, one concealer etc and the same applies in skin care…until I discovered Caroline Hirons and her world of ‘Double Cleansing’. I thought I’d do a run down of what products are currently in the bathroom cabinet…
I always start with this product for my first cleanse. This contains no sulphates or minerals so is great for super sensitive skin like mine. It completely melts away my make up – I simply put two pumps into my palms and then gently massage into my face and if I’m wearing make up, you can see it start to slide off. I then rinse off using a warm flannel. It even tackles waterproof mascara easily. It’s a no nonsense product that does exactly as promised.
£18.00 for 100ml
This seems to be the bloggers skincare of choice and I can definitely see why. With Vitamins A, C & E, Omega 6, Starflower Oil, Pumpkin Enzymes, Chamomile & Rose it’s got lots of super ingredients to help all skin types. I love how it melts away make-up leaving my skin feeling completely clean and soft. It has a great soft smell of rose which isn’t over powering at all. If I use this product for a few days in a row I can see a difference in my skin and it’s been helping clear up the nasty scars I have left over from acne.
£29.50 for 100ml
Caroline Hirons has worked with Pixi to launch her own double cleanse pot and I can see why it sold out straight away! I was lucky enough to get my hands on the first batch that was released. It’s a product that I’ll reach for time and time again especially if I’ve been out in the evening and I’ve had a heavy load of makeup on. There are two sides to the pot – a solid oil for your first cleanse and gentle cream side for your second step. The solid oil contains evening primrose oil, vitamin E and camellia oil whilst the cream contains ingredients that help with renewal and elasticity, and helps promote collagen.
If we’re going away, I add this to my toiletry bag as it’s two products in one therefore less bottles!
£24.00 for 100ml (50ml of each product)
This featured in my January favourites post and it’s still going strong. This product can also be used as a face mask if you leave it on for around 10 minutes. The balm melts away any left over traces of makeup. I do sometimes use this as my first cleanse if I fancy changing it up from the Caudalie and it can handle the tricky mascara issue. It smells a little like a product you might find in a spa as it has aromatherapy oils in which are soothing and relaxing. This is another one of Caroline Hiron’s favourite products so I had to try some!!
£38.00 for 100ml
This is the product I always reach for in the mornings. It’s thick, creamy and feels luxurious. The ingredients make your skin feel soft, smooth and moisturised. I find that this product doesn’t dissolve the mascara like the other products which is why I use this in the morning to wake my skin up.
£15.00 for 100ml
