Have you seen the hype from vloggers on the new Pixi & Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse? Well a couple of the ones I’m obsessed with watching have talked about it, in either their ‘New In’ or ‘Monthly Favourites’ videos, which made me want to try it (damn Vloggers and their recommendations aha). But I had no idea where I could get one from.
I’ve changed jobs lately (I might do a post on that soon), and my new one is in my local town centre so on my way back to my car, I nip through the shops. On one of my cut through Marks & Spencers (or Marks & Sparks, whatever you call it), I saw a Pixi stand!! Did anybody else know that they sell Pixi? or am I just SUPER late to the scene?
Without even looking at the other products, I picked up the last Double Cleanse that was on the shelf and made sure that it was mine. I know I’ve been late to the cleanser scene but I have fell head over heels in love with the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser, and the idea of a double cleanser just boggled my mind, like why would you need to cleanse twice in one go?? But hey it’s meant to be super good for you skin and I am yet to find a bad review on it, so I was super intrigued to give it a try.
The night that I bout this I was actually going on a girls night out so I didn’t get to try it as soon as I would have liked. But one of the girls came round mine before we went out and she has even more sensitive skin than I do, but she still tried some of the cream cleanser on the back of her hand, and all she kept on saying that night is how soft her hand felt. So the morning of a hangover I decided to have a soak in the bath and try this out in hopes of making myself feel more human. And wow did it work!!
Like you can guess from both the packaging and the name of the cleanser, you use one side first and then the other. The first side that you use is a cleansing balm, which kinda reminds me of the texture of coconut oil. You are meant to take a coin sized amount and massage it onto dry skin and use a facecloth to remove it (i just use my hands tho). Then you take another coin sized amount of the cleansing cream, rub onto your face and again, remove with a face cloth (i still use my hands for this aswell). This not only removes ALL of your makeup, but leaves your face super soft. It even gives Liz Earl a run for its money. BUTTTTT the only down side to this is you really could’t use it everyday because it would cost you a small fortune! At £24 a tub, it goes down fast! A coin sized amount doesn’t sound alot but it soon adds up. I alternate between my Liz Earl Hot Cloth Cleanser and this which I use on average 3 times a week. So going back to the title, yes this is well worth the money (just maybe not for everyday use).
