My new favourite double cleanse duo! – L.K.
As you may know, I bloody love searching for great cleansers. I’m partial to all kinds of textures, creams, gels, oils, balms ect.
But these 2 little beauties are what I’ve been reaching for most nights for my double cleanse.
So double cleansing is exactly what it says on the tin, cleansing, wash, then cleansing again, wash. This is to ensure your skin is completely clean before your PM routine, because if it’s not, what’s the point of wasting money on your serums, oils and moisturisers if they’re not going to fully penetrate the skin?
You can use the same cleanser, but I believe using 2 different products with 2 different properties works better in getting your skin squeaky clean.
Like this review will show, (I will get onto the products soon I promise), I think an active oil (balms work equally as good) to begin with, breaking down make up and spf, which are designed to stick to your skin like GLUE. Something you can slip around your face getting into all the nooks and crannies. Then followed with a cream (or milk) to sooth, hydrate, and truly get the skin clean and rid of excess sebum. I wash my cleansers off with white flannels (or wash cloths for the US friends), clean, obviously, one side for the 1st cleanse and the other side for the 2nd.
Super facialist is a very affordable skincare brand, I’m always seeing their products being spoken about on social media and forums on a daily basis. They are sold in various places online and in stores. Boots, Feel Unique and Amazon to name a few.
They are known for their ‘Collections’, which focus on a main ingredient, to which they base a whole skincare range around it. My 2 are the Vitamin C and the Rose range. Others include Salicylic Acid, Retinol and Hyaluronic Acid.
VITAMIN C SKIN RENEW CLEANSING OIL
So I, (as a lot of my stash), got this solely on word of mouth. It was actually the ’30 minute oil cleanse’ trend that sky rocketed this cleansing oil into everybody’s bathroom cupboards, (though it has been being sold for years). The reason this trend was so popular is because people seemed to find little black grains coming from their skin, thinking they are blackheads, they’re not. Massaging oil on your face doesn’t exactly extract blackheads, you need tools for that stuff. It’s bits of dead skin and sebaceous filament gunk that are pilling off the skin. You don’t need to rub your cleanser around your face for so long for it to be effective, save your time.
The smell is a lovely citrus scent, due to it’s many fruit, flower and seed oils that are used. Fragrance is quite far up on the INCI list, it doesn’t bother me, but if you are easily irritated this might not be great for you.
Make up/spf literally dissolves when massaged in.
Oil attracts oil, so dry hands and dry face, the molecules in the oil latch onto those on your skin and get to work instantly! Olive oil is also incorporated, which gives it a greasier feel. My skin feels so so soft post application, and the same has been said for those who I have persuaded to buy it. Baby’s bottom vibes!
If you have oily/combo skin, and are thinking, ‘oh I couldn’t possibly use this, it will make my oily skin even worse’, that is not the case. Remember when I said oil attracts oil? You’re cancelling out the excess oil produced in a way, but also replenishing the skin in the same breath. That being said, this is also perfect for a dry skin type. It leaves the skin supple and bouncy to the touch, skin tone looks more even and physically brighter too.
If I am wearing quite a bit of make up/spf, I like to decant a 10p sized amount of oil into my palms, massage it in, then another 5p amount and emulsify with a small amount of water and let it work my skin, then wipe off with a wet, warm flannel. (All first cleanse).
The bottle is a very decent size, 200ml (100ml is also available). and is clear so you can see all of the lovely oil inside. £10.99
I’m so glad I gave this product a try, will 10000% be repurchasing.
ROSE CALMING CREAMY CLEANSER
I didn’t really plan on getting this, but I seen it while I was nosing around Boots and thought eh, why not?
The smell of this did take me by surprise, it’s very strong rose scent, almost like potpourri or something your gran would like (in the nicest way possible). It will be too fragrenced for some.
The texture is super rich and creamy, but melts into the skin nicely for a relaxing massage while cleaning the skin.
The ingredients aren’t as great as the oil, but there are some lovely seed oils incorporated.
Skin feels smooth to the touch after use and works perfectly along side the oil.
This is a gorgeous cleanse for if you’re not wearing any make up or spf and still want to gently cleanse the skin.
Another good sized bottle at 150ml. and just £7.99!
Giving you’re ok with fragrance, I highly recommend pairing these 2 cleansers into your routine. Skin feels so clean but not stripped after use. I love them!
