Pixi x Caroline Hirons’ Double Cleanse has finally found it’s way to Canada. I picked up my tub from Shoppers Drug Mart a couple of weeks ago and have been putting it to the test ever since.
First thing’s first, if you don’t know who Caroline Hirons is crawl out from the rock you’ve been living under and head over to her blog right this instant. Caroline is a beauty and skincare expert from the UK, with years of experience working in the industry. She has been my go-to person when it comes to reviews and expert opinions, and her YouTube channel is hands down of of my favourite places on the internet.
Caroline isn’t new to the world of Pixi either, in fact she’s been working with the brand for several years, with the Double Cleanse being her first foray in to co-created products with the brand.
As for the product itself, the Double Cleanse does exactly what it says it does. The 2 x 50ML Tub contains both a solid oil cleanser (read: balm) and a cream cleanser. Caroline has always been a massive advocate for double cleansing at night – that’s cleanse first to remove any makeup or dirt, and then a second time to actually cleanse the skin.
To use the Double Cleanser, first apply a coin sized amount of the balm to dry skin and massage until it becomes an oil. Caroline will always say to remove this with a moist facecloth, but I tend to just use water. Follow your first cleanse by applying a coin size amount of the cream cleanser on the the skin, massaging again and removing with a facecloth or water.
Both cleansers are gentle enough for daily use, but still manage to make your face feel incredibly clean. The only thing I really dislike about this product is the pot itself – I’m just more of a pump-cleanser kind of gal. But besides that, I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking to take their skincare regiment to the next level, without breaking the bank.
Absolute A+ Pixi and Caroline Hirons! Well done!
