Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse.

Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse.

I’ve always been interested in Double Cleansing. It makes sense, doesn’t it? Why would you use just one cleanser in the hope of removing everything the day has thrown at your skin from the likes of makeup to pollutants? One cleanse just isn’t going to be enough. I have tried in the past to double cleanse using two different cleansers but always ended up being lazy about it. So, when I discovered the Pixi Double Cleanse, I had to buy it.

Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse.

So first off, if you haven’t heard of Double Cleansing before, I’ll guide you through it. It’s basically using two different cleansing products at night to remove all the day’s gunk gathered up in your pores and makeup too, of course. Essentially, you need an oil based cleanser first and then a lighter gel or cream after. The first step is to remove dirt from the surface of the skin and the second is to remove anything left over to really clean the skin.

The Pixi Double Cleanse was created in collaboration with Caroline Hirons, who I’m sure you’ve all heard of but if not (where have you been!?), Caroline is a blogger and qualified advanced aesthetician whose blog I adore when it comes to skincare recommendations. So, I knew that this product was probably going to be worthy of my money as I trust Caroline’s opinions and reviews a lot.

This is a 2 in 1 cleanser, one side (the first step) contains a solid cleansing oil that is used to break down and remove the day’s makeup and dirt. I had never used a cleansing oil before this one and it feels so luxurious on the skin! One thing I will say is to try and avoid using this to remove eye makeup as it really stung my eyes! Probably not my wisest move, hey?. The solid cleansing oil contains some lovely ingredients including Vitamin E and Primrose Oil.

The second step is the lovely lightweight cleansing cream used to remove any leftover makeup and nasty stuff. I will also sometimes use this to remove any eye makeup as, as I said before, the oil is a bit too much for that area! The cleansing cream contains Vitamin C and Peptide complex which helps plump the skin. After this step, my skin is left grime free, looking nourished, all prepped and ready for the next skincare step. I have been loving using this every night, my skin feels and looks like it’s had a good pamper every time!

For my lazy self, this 2 in 1 cleanser has been a welcome addition to my routine. Housed all in one tub, it’s easy and less time consuming. I love the sturdy packaging, however, I do wish it was perhaps a little bigger as I can’t see this lasting me very long and whilst at £24 it’s not the most expensive cleansing product I’ve owned, it’s still not cheap!

I can safely say, I’ll never go back to using just one cleanser in the evenings.

Do you Double Cleanse?

  • Thank you for sharing your thoughts, I have been deliberating on getting or skipping on this and I think I will skip. It sounds gorgeous and I love Caroline Hirons but I just don't think it would last long enough, although now I think about it, it could be good for travel? I do think double-cleansing is a must, but there are so many affordable (not that, like you said, this is really expensive) cleansers out there I have yet to try. I love the Pixi Glow Mud Cleanser that, to me, is worth every penny and lasts forever. Great post! Hope you are having a brilliant day xxx

  • I wasn't sure how I felt about this at first but I've since been loving it! I found i'm running out of the cream cleanser a lot quicker than the balm. Which is annoying xx


  • Great honest review. I will most likely buy this as I'm obsessed with Pixi!

  • Yeah I reckon it'd be good for travel, if you travel a lot! I'd say if you use it every night it'd last about a month so yeah it's a bit pricey in that aspect 🙂 I need to try the Glow mud cleanser, it sounds fab! Glad you liked the post and thank you, you too!! xo

  • Yeah, I use a lot more of the cream than I do the oil! Very annoying haha xo

  • Thank you! xo
