Hope everyone has had a lovely bank holiday Sunday! Last one before Christmas yaaasss! I love Autumn/Winter time and everything about it fashion, make up, Halloween.... So much to look forward to! Anyways I've went off on a tangent there so let's get back to what I'm actually meant to be writing about.
So I had heard that term 'double cleansing' a while ago and hadn't really thought much of it. Then a few weeks ago my skin really wasn't looking it's best, it wasn't the worst it's ever been but it was a bit meh. There was texture on the skin and I had a few spots here and there. I wasn't using anything new on my skin so couldn't blame anything. So one night a couple of weeks ago I was taking my make up off and I had used a wipe and then for some reason I thought I would use some micellar water after it and the amount of make up that was still on my skin was unbelievable. I thought it was all off! That's when I thought I need to start double cleansing and hopefully that would mean my pores would be fully clean at the end of each day and it would sort my skin out.
So at a night I'm using the Lacura Caviar wipes which are only from Aldi and I think they were around about £3.99. So really inexpensive and I follow that with the Garnish Skin Active oil infused micellar water on cotton pads.
The Lacura wipes are not as wet as I would like as I feel like it makes the makeup harder to remove. When I first used these I didn't like them because of them being more on the dryer side and I felt like my make up wouldn't have been removed properly. However, when I went over my face with the micellar water I was so surprised. The wipes had taken all the make up off... I was shook haha! Although I do feel like the wipes are good and remove all the male up I still think it's important to go in with the micellar water after to really cleanse my skin and unclog all the pores and remove any extra make up. I really like the oil infused one and the regular micellar water Garnier do. They are really good at removing make up but do take more effort than a wipe... I'm just lazy I think. The one thing I'm not a fan of is it really stings my eyes when taking off eye make up and it says you can use it on eyes and it's for sensitive skin. I think my eyes might be extra sensitive though as they water really easily anyways and I just make sure to not use too much of it around the eye area now. Apart from that I love it.
And the final bit of cleansing I've started doing is on a morning. Now some people might find this disgusting but I used to wash my face on a morning with just water. However, I have started using the Garnier soothing botanical cleansing milk from the Skin Active range. I really like this cleanser I love the smell of it, how gentle it is and I love how it makes my skin feel. I don't think it would be strong enough to remove all of my make up at night but it is a great morning cleanser.
I have found that cleansing on a morning and the double cleansing at night has really helped my skin clear up and although there is still a bit of texture there, it isn't half as bad as it was.
I would deffo recommend giving these products a try if you haven't already and if you have or you double cleanse let me know below and what you think of it.
Until next time,
