Better skin with a double cleanse

We are all fans of the double cleanse by now.

The two-step make up removal and cleansing of the skin is an essential part of every beauty maven’s daily routine.

Choosing the right combination can be confusing, However once you choose the appropriate cleansing combination for your skin type and lifestyle, you are going to have success and much better skin.

Bioderma knows it isn’t one-size-fits-all when it comes to skincare and has developed micellar water for every skin type using a tailored dermatological approach to encourage healthy skin.

Its Sensibio H2O is designed to remove make-up, cleanse, and soothe sensitive skin. The lightweight product freshens, immediately soothes, and lastingly reduces feelings of discomfort. Sensibio H2O protects the skin against irritants leaving it less reactive and less irritated.

The Sébium H2O has been developed for combination oily skin. It gently cleanses skin, removing and preventing excess sebum. Active ingredients copper sulphate and zinc gluconate help rebalance the skin and prevent blemishes. Sébium H2O leaves the skin purified, clearer and smoother.

The Hydrabio H2O is ideal for dehydrated skin removing make-up, cleansing, and moisturising skin in one simple step. Thanks to glycerine and aquagenium, skin is immediately and lastingly hydrated. Hydrabio H2O leaves the skin feeling soft, supple and toned. The Bioderma H2O range (250m) is priced at €12.75 and is available from pharmacies nationwide.

Treat your skin to an ultra-gentle, effective cleanse with the CeraVe Micellar Cleansing Water (€11.95). Developed with dermatologists and suitable for all skin types, including sensitive, the facial cleanser is designed to sweep away impurities, pollution and makeup, while respecting the skin’s natural barrier.

The micellar water is fortified with three essential ceramides working to keep the skin hydrated for up to 24 hours. It also uses niacinamide, a form of vitamin B3, to help cleanse and purify your complexion. Aggressive scrubbing can disrupt the skin's barrier, pH and microbiome. This micellar cleanser is a gentle alternative on both skin and eyes, helping to leave the skin feeling balanced and refreshed.

Jumpstart your daily brightening routine with Image Skincare Iluma Brightening Exfoliating Cleanser (€43). It’s a luxurious cream-to-foam cleanser. It sweeps away impurities and exfoliates in one step to help visibly brighten skin. Its mushroom-derived enzyme, bamboo spheres and smart-sensing beads gently exfoliate dull skin, while natural extracts help boost luminosity and promote hydration.

The cushiony, non-stripping formula leaves the skin feeling soft and refreshed. It’s a one-step brightening cleanser + exfoliator to provide a truly lush experience from start to finish.

Nimue is a brand that I have a big love for. Nimue Cleansing Gel (€43) is a soap-free, two-in-one gel cleanser that gently removes makeup while providing light exfoliation to cleanse pores and clear away dead skin cells, revealing the fresh, radiant skin underneath. This cleanser creates a radiant complexion, promotes natural detoxification processes and balances sebum production without drying the skin. It is gentle enough to use twice a day.

Natural Blumain Geranium & Orange Cleansing Oil (100ml, €25) is an ideal first step in your double cleanse routine. It easily and effectively removes even the most stubborn makeup, SPF, etc, leaving your skin cleansed and ready for the next stage of your skincare routine. Suitable for all skin types, and with a beautiful uplifting scent, your skin will feel cleansed, nourished and fresh after each use.

The Hydrating Orange Blossom Cleansing Milk (100m,l €25) has the refreshing scent and effect of orange blossom water and orange essential oil brighten, while castor oil deep cleanses, and alpha hydroxy acids gently resurface the skin. Skin is left fresh and more refined looking.

It’s ideal as the second step in your double cleanse. It is safe for use morning and night.
