Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse Review

Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse Review

Hey Beauties!

I will be the first one to say i was really late on the whole Pixi train which seems to be a common theme with me, i always let the hype pass me by and then if people are still talking about something months later then i know its something i have to try and the Pixi Double Cleanse was no different.

Lately ive gotten really into skincare and for the first time i have a good solid skincare routine in place that seems to be helping pretty well thanks to Double Cleanse!
I think a lot of it is thanks to the amazing Caroline Hirons, i think ive watched every one of her videos and i have learnt the most of what i know about skincare from here to the point where i hear the words “Makeup Wipe” these days and shudder haha

Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse Review

So what is Double Cleansing? Double Cleansing is a method that has been used by facialists for years but has only recently come into the public eye as something you should be doing, i know the idea of cleansing your face isn’t fun and sounds bothersome but really is worth it. The idea with double cleansing is that you start with an oil based cleanser (fight oil with oil) the oil breaks down makeup, spf and the daily buildup of pollutants and environmental gunk, the second cleanse usually a milk, cleansing cream or gel is used to clean the skin and helps to protect it.

Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse Review

Double Cleanse itself comes in 2 parts, a solid cleansing oil that is contains all sorts of skin cleansing goodies such as Evening Primrose Oil which is a plant oil whose fatty acids can have significant skin-soothing and emollient benefits on the skin, Camellia Oil, potent antioxidant which has fantastic skin smoothing properties, Avocado Oil another powerful antioxidant which is a good source of skin-replenishing fatty acids and finally Vitamin E which helps to protect our skin against free radicals and protects against and mop up daily environmental and pollutant gunk
This is applied to dry skin and massaged in circular motions to remove as much makeup, spf etc as possible then wash away with a micro-fibre cloth

The second cleanse is a gorgeous cleansing cream this will help to remove anything that is left over that wasnt hit in the first cleanse but it wont leave the skin feeling stripped or tight as it contains Vitamin C in the form of Ascorbic Acid which can balance and actually increase the production of collagen,so you can understand that this is a powerhouse of an ingredient especially when mixed with other antioxidants, Argireline usually called “Botox in a jar” as it stops the repetitive movement of muscles in the face which end up causing wrinkles- it also has has water-binding properties and a theoretical skin-restoring ability, Arginine is an amino acid considered essential to human development again this has antioxidant properties and finally Aloe which is well known for its soothing properties, antioxidant qualities, and serves as a hydrating agent for skin.
This is applied to damp skin and massaged into the skin in circular motions and washed off with a Micro-fibre cloth

I have been using this for about 2/3 weeks now i knew after the 2nd time i have used it that i loved it, i didnt want to believe the hype but it was actually amazing. This isnt your bells and whistles cleanser its a cleanser that everyone can use on a daily basis no matter your skin type which i think is fantastic because sometimes less really is more!

8.5/10 Overall
Pros

Cleanses thoroughly

Little bit expensive

    I love double cleansing. Once I started, I can’t stop! I have been wanting to try this product but it doesn’t seem like the amount of product you get is worth the price to me. Maybe it won’t be an everyday product for me but a once-in-a-while treat :p

    • Oh i totally agree i think when you are wearing a full face you dont realise how much makeup is still left on your skin from just a single cleanse its pretty insane!
      You could try to find it when its on deal? i got mine when it was buy 2 pixi products and get a free third product

  • Hey Andrew fantastic review,Yes I’ve used double cleanse now for quite a while. I don’t use every night but when I’ve got a face full of stubborn makeup then I do as works fantastic. It leaves my skin feeling lovely soft and refreshed. Plus i really think Caroline is fantastic xxx 🙂

    • Thanks hun i really appreciate it!! Yeah its good for a full face but usually i will just use the oil side if i have just had a no makeup day

  • Tiffany Twisted

    I’ve never tried Pixi–I swear I saw it in Walmart and thought it was for kids LOL I’m testing out a new skincare line right now but definitely will put this on my list of things to try this year!

  • Maggie Abbonizio

    I have always wanted to try pixie but haven’t made it there yet, now I will!!

    • I was the same! its funny how i never had anything from pixi now i seem to have a lot haha in the space of what 2 months? haha

  • I have read so many great things about this cleanser – I’d love to give it ago without having to go for the full £24 straight away <3

    G is for Gingers xx

    • You know thats such a smart idea! they have a travel size glow tonic how good would a travel size double go be! suggest it to the brand im sure they will be receptive to listening

  • Jessica Martin

    I have read great things about this, but also on the other hand I’ve seen that it runs out very quickly and for the price you don’t get a lot. Really interesting read! xo

    • Thanks for reading! well ive been using it for about a month now and its still going strong, i think the people who go through it fast are maybe using a bit too much? i use about a 10p size each time and its still there

  • I have to give this a try. I remember when I worked at Sephora double cleansing was a big trend they made us promote it to clients I think for a month lol.

    • Totally! i think double cleansing is a really smart idea i will usually only double cleanse if ive been wearing makeup or a really heavy SPF that day other wise i would probably only just cleanse once with the Oil side

  • I have yet to try this cleanser but it’s definitely in my list to purchase!

    • Its literally so good haha! so its been nearly a month now and still going strong i love the way it feels when i cleanse now!

  • I’ve been seeing this cleanser everywhere! I like the idea although I feel like I’d run out of one before the other… they should sell the steps separately as well!

    • You know im one of those people that always runs out of conditioner before shampoo but with this cleanser i feel like its running out at the same time i think maybe because you only need the same amount each time

  • I don’t know why I haven’t tried this yet (maybe because I already have about six cleansers on the go, ha!) but I seriously need to, it sounds gorgeous 🙂

    • You were the same as me i kept thinking to myself why havent i bought this yet then i though meh just go for it! now im hooked haha

  • I have never tried this product, but would like to purchase it after your review 🙂
