Double cleansing is having a major moment, both in the beauty world and in my skin care routine! Taking care of my complexion is major, for me and I'm always happy to try new, quality skin care that helps me do just that. If you'd like to know more, read on.

What is Double Cleansing?

Simply put, double cleansing is a two step process that thoroughly sweeps away makeup, even waterproof and long wearing formulas as well as dirt, excess oil and pollution, leaving skin sparkling clean and fresh without stripping it of it's natural moisture barrier.

Step One:

After removing my eye makeup, I dispense a dollop of Dermalogica Pre Cleanse Balm - $45.00, 3.0 oz. - into the palm of my hand and apply it to my face, working it into my skin in circular motions, letting it soften and begin to break down and lift the detritus of the day. Next, I add a little water to emulsify the balm into a creamy cleanser and I grab the included soft, nubby silicone cleansing mitt and go to town. Rinse and move on to step two to complete my Dermalogica Pre Cleanse. Dermalogica Pre Cleanse Balm has the gentlest hint of a mint/lavender scent that doesn't linger.

Ingredients:
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Laureth-4, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Ozokerite, Bis-Stearyl Dimethicone, Glyceryl Behenate, Tribehenin, Stearyl Stearate, Stearic Acid, Phospholipids, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Oil, Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Peel Oil, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Oil, Lavandula Hybrida Oil, Glycol Distearate, Sorbitol/Sebacic Acid Copolymer Behenate, Tocopherol, Glycolipids, Eucalyptus Staigeriana Branch/Leaf Oil, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Sterols, Linalool, Citral, Limonene, Phenoxyethanol.


What's the Deal With That Mitt, Anyway? 

Grey, made of baby soft silicone, on one side, are many (how many? I don't know... I didn't count them, Dude) soft fingers that gently get deep down and power the gunk off of my skin. On the other side is a demi lune of firmer nubs that massage and stimulate and leave my complexion feeling rejuvenated and alive. After use, I give it a quick wash with liquid hand soap, rinse and pat it dry with a clean towel and it's ready to go, the next time. I really dig that little mitt and it works great with a lot of different facial cleansers. It would also be nice to take along on a trip, rather than lugging a powered facial cleansing device.

Step Two: 

Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel - $37.00, 8.4 oz. -is a soap free deep cleansing gel enriched with Quillaja Sopnaria and Lavender Extract that remove impurities and enhance cleansing while Balm Mint cools and calms my skin, leaving it feeling refreshed, comfortable and ready for the rest of my skin care. Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel has very little scent; it smells like clean skin care with the barest zephyr of lavender. 

Ingredients:
Water/Aqua/Eau, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Disodium Lauroamphodiacetate, Sodium Trideceth Sulfate, Hexylene Glycol, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Extract, Melissa Officinalis Leaf Extract, Quillaja Saponaria Bark Extract, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, PPG-5-Ceteth-20, Citric Acid, Sodium Chloride, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.
Dermalogica skin care is available at ULTA Beauty, online and in store, and Nordstrom. Dermalogica is cruelty free.

  10. I feel like I don't need to spend this amount for skincare. I use Lush and it's medium priced and works well for me.
