Double-Cleansing Routine Feat. Caudalie

Double-Cleansing Routine Feat. Caudalie

Maskne begone!


I get asked about my skincare routine on a daily basis. While it is uplifting to hear positive feedback from my beautiful readers and Instagram friends, truth is that I experience problematic skin days just as much as everyone else does. However, I did discover a couple of amazing products that help me maintain a healthy balance. In this post I am going to focus on my current cleansing routine, featuring a couple of favorites from Caudalie.

Step One

So long pollution and grime

Caudalie Make-Up Removing Cleansing Oil (28 USD; Made in France) – has been my go-to “first step” cleanser for many moons now. It melts away makeup, all while keeping your skin soft and semi-hydrated. If you have been reading my blog for a while (hugs!), chances are you already just how much I adore this product.

The reason why I love this oil-based cleanser so much is that it removes both your face and eye makeup in one go. Gentle, made of excellent green ingredients and always effective. This is the best formula (that I have discovered in my blogging years) for people with not only easily irritable skin, but also extra sensitive eyes. Make-Up Removing Cleansing Oil does not blur your vision, damage your lashes or leave a heavy, sticky residue/film on the skin like most balms or oils do. It breaks down all kinds of makeup in seconds (even the most waterproof or generally stubborn formulas), leaves your skin feeling refreshed and ready for the next step in your cleansing routine.

Step Two

Panda who?

Caudalie Micellar Cleansing Water (28 USD; Made in France) – is a beautiful, soap-free and antioxidant-rich micellar water solution that will lift impurities and soothe your skin.

From my experience even after using a heavy-duty oil-based cleanser, often times I still find makeup residue around my nostrils, underneath my eyes (we are all familiar with the mascara panda face) etc. Nothing dramatic, but obviously you do not want to just leave it there. Instead of using Make-Up Removing Cleansing Oil again, I saturate my cotton pad with micellar water and swipe it over entire face and neck. Usually there is little to no makeup on the cotton pad, but it is reassuring to know that at this point my skin is 90% clean.

Unlike most products of its kind, Micellar Cleansing Water actually feels hydrating and, in my opinion, it is the most gentle formulation that you can use to remove residual makeup around delicate eye area. I do not recommend using it to dissolve mascara or gel liners though. That’s what you have Cleansing Oil for.
