Why do you need to double cleanse?

How does double cleansing have the power to transform your skin compared to your beloved bottle of micellar water? Simply because it can revolutionise your skincare routine:

  1. It’s the first step in an anti-ageing routine because thoroughly cleansed skin is essentially skin that ages more slowly!

  2. You effectively cleanse your skin and thus reduce imperfections (including blackheads, uneven skin texture and other skincare issues.) 

  3. You’re preserving your protective skin barrier! Say your goodbyes to uncomfortable skin and redness! 

  4. You enable all your other skincare treatments to work! In fact, you’re maximising your beauty routine and allowing your skin to optimally regenerate throughout the night.

How does double cleansing work?  

In two simple and effective steps: an oil-based phase and a water-based phase. The first phase entails using an oil-based cleansing to dislodge oil-based impurities that have accumulated throughout the day, such as makeup, pollution or excess sebum, without aggressing or drying out the skin. The water-based phase involves applying a second water-based cleanser, such as a cleansing milk or a gel depending on your skin type. This step refines the cleansing process by removing the remaining toxins while addressing various skin concerns.  

Start by massaging a makeup-removing oil or cleansing balm to your dry skin (even the eyes), rinse and apply your second cleanser (gel, milk or foaming cleanser) before rinsing. Trust us when we say it doesn’t take as much time as using cotton pads on cotton pads…

“Very satisfied, the combination of the makeup removing oil and the cleansing jelly leaves my face free from all makeup, pollution, and sebum. Not irritating to my eyes, I remove eye makeup by hand and there's no oil residue in my eyes. Indeed, the container releases drops one at a time, but at least there's no waste.”

- Adelie on the Makeup Removing Oil

"Zinc does the job, it clears up pimples, skin texture is slightly refined, I now only use this cleanser. I recommend it!"
