Is Double Cleansing Right for Me?

Oil cleanse or double cleanse, not sure which cleaning method to try?

Let's break it down. 


What is it?

Oil Cleansing is applying an oil-based cleanser to purify your skin.

Double cleanse is a two step cleansing process starting with an oil-based cleanser followed by a water-based cleanser. 

Why do it?

Oil cleanse to remove makeup, oil, dirt, and grime. It can either be used alone or as the first step of a double cleanse. 

Double cleanse for a deeper clean to remove anything left behind after step one.

Who's it for?

It is all about how dirty your skin gets. The deeper clean of a double cleanse is best of you wear a lot of makeup, live in a hot and humid climate, sweat from heavy exercise, or are exposed to heavy pollution. 

When to use it?

You can either oil cleanse on its own at night, or use it as step one of a double cleanse. When double cleansing, do so at night and either skip the cleansing step in the morning or use just oil cleanse. 

Which cleansing method is right for you? 

I oil cleanse only, and here's why:
  • I rarely wear makeup.
  • I live in a temperate climate.
  • I'm not exposed to heavy pollution.
I only cleanse once a day, so I use the oil cleansing method at night to remove dirt and grime from my day and clean and prep my skin to rejuvenate I sleep. sleep.
