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

Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse Review

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!

You can find the Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse online at Cult Beauty as well as in M&S Beauty Halls for Β£24 (M&S have a deal on now where you can buy 2 products and get a free full sized 24K Eye Elixir worth Β£22)

Have you tried this cleanser?
If not….WHY NOT?! haha  πŸ˜‰

  • I see this more and more these days! Celebrities and influencers saying "this cured my skin it's amazing" but then don't talk about the fact that they get monthly facials and use acids and retinol on a daily basis. Yeah I totally believe you it's down to that crappy physical scrub you used once πŸ™„πŸ˜’ What's worse is when I see celebs/influencers promoting supplementation that isn't even proven to work! Supplementation is literally useless unless you are deficient. No your hair won't grow to super lenghts because you a gummy once a day.

Don't get me started on these "fit teas" that are essentially expensive laxatives .

  • I get asked if oily skin should moisturise a lot and I'm here to tell you it's a resounding  YES!

I know the idea of making your skin oily again doesn't sound like fun but hear me out. Stripping your skin won't do you any good our skin needs to contain oil it's essential for skin health.

By taking care of our skin and using a light moisturiser say in a gel form for example will actually help to cut down on the excess oil as your skin won't be trying to protect itself when you strip the oil away.. Its really interesting when you realise a majority of oily skin types are really dehydrated so we need to look for moisturisers that are light in texture and contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin etc. I personally love the @cliniqueuk Hydrating Jelly it's a great serum/moisturiser for oily skin.

  • (Originally uploaded to Live)

Check out the 2nd episode of weekly skincare routine video! i will hopefully be making these every Saturday at 8pm UK time! make sure to keep an eye out.
  • I hate to say it but skincare is not a quick fix you can't use a product 3 times and expect miraculous results.

I see a lot of people using products sporadically and then getting annoyed when they don't see any results even though it's only been about 4 weeks of use.

While hyaluronic acid serums will show results right away you will look plump and hydrated, HA is generally an exception to the rule.

A majority of actives will take time to show results. Take retinol for example you might see a small improvement early on but it can take upto 6 months for you to notice a profound difference.

You need to be consistent in your use just because something doesn't work right away it doesn't mean it's useless, we also have to manage our expectations as well sometimes we hope for too much and are let down by the results. 
Skincare can only do so much so it's important to have realistic expectations.

It might not look like much is happening to start with but you need to keep going you need to push past the idea of "this isn't working" 
Think to yourself why do you think it's not working? Are you using it often enough? Are you using enough product? What are your expectations? .

  • Can you believe that it's been 10 years since the launch of @emmahardieskincare 😱😱 Usually Moringa Cleansing Balm is a gateway product to the brand because of its cult status but for me it was the other way around. This is the last product in the range for me to try out 🀣

I use it for the first time during my Instagram live the other day and I really liked it. It removed everything really well and didnt leave my skin tight or dehydrated like some cleaners do.

A day doesnt go by where I don't use an oil based cleanser as they just work best for my skin. It's a common misconception that oily skin shouldnt use oils but it's actually really good to use an oil cleanser as it doesn't disturb your skin barrier and it's much easier to cleaner oil with oil.

Moringa Cleansing Balm contains a mixture of ingredients such as Moringa seed extract, an emollient which is rich in nourishing and moisturizing fatty oleic acid as well as wild sea fennel and vitamin e.

The only real problem I have with this cleanser is the addition of fragrant essential oils which in my opinion don't really need to be in this formulation. There are a few citrus oils in the cleanser such as orange, mandarin and neroli which are not only irritating but can cause photosensitivity. 
I would say to leave this as a PM cleanser because I would hate to see what would happen if someone didn't cleanse this off properly and went out in the sun and didn't have a proper sunscreen on.

Apart from the addition of fragrant essential oils I really liked how this cleansed and how it felt after it was removed. My skin isn't really sensitive to essential oils even though I do try to avoid them where possible.

If you do have sensitive and reactive skin I would maybe try a sample of this cleanser before buying just incase.

  • It's not enough to be just using a moisturiser in your skincare routine. 
There seems to be a common misunderstanding that cleanse tone and moisturise is enough while it's a good starting point it's not a long term plan if you want to keep your skin tight, plump and wrinkle free you need to be using actives.

A good moisturiser just hydrates and seals moisture into the skin it really doesn't do much more than that.

If you're serious about a good skincare routine and you're 30+ you need to be looking at actives like Retinol, AHAs, Vitamin C etc 
These ingredients have an actual effect on the skin some of them stimulate collagen which depletes as we get older, some help to firm the skin and others will help with any pigmentation etc 
You don't need to be spending Β£50-Β£100 on a moisturiser because something Β£10+ is gonna do the same job. A M
moisturiser is one of the steps you can skimp on and not spent much money.
