Double cleansing?! I hear you cry, you hardly have time in the day to cleanse once. I was the same! However once you try it you won’t go back. I was guilty of first using cotton pads with cleansing milk to remove make up and clean my skin followed by a toner to finish removing what the cleanser hadn’t. A big no no according to the Espa Team at Luton Hoo spa (if you didn’t read my blog about the facial workshop I attended you can here https://whiterobeandslippers.com/2018/07/23/espa-facial-workshop-what-i-learnt/ )
The cotton pad with toner on should always come away from your skin clean, the cleanser should do all the removing. They suggested that although cleansing milks are good I should use a cleansing wash first followed my the milk and finished with the toner.
How right they were. I am now a double cleanse addict. My skin feels so much cleaner and fresher. It’s appearance emulates that of just having had a facial and the glow I get is addictive. It doesn’t have to take long and if you have all your products to hand and a clean muslin or flannel you can get it done in no time.
My favourite cleansers at the moment to double cleanse alongside my cleansing milk are:
The Espa Pro cleanser which is also a mild exfoliate and can be used as a mask
The Elemis oil cleanser
A new one I have to try is the Liz Earle hot cloth cleanser. I have never heard a bad word said about this cleanser so I am super excited to try it for myself. I will be sure to let you know what I think!
If you give double cleansing a go let me know how it goes.
