I like simple cleansers. I have always preferred the one-stop shop varieties, which leave skin clean, eye makeup removed all while not being irritating in the slightest. If you would have asked me 3 months ago what my thoughts were on the double cleanse my response would have been along the lines of ‘pointless’ and ‘wasteful’.
But you beauty bloggers are persistent bread. Post after post, double cleanse this and my skin looks so amazing that… I caved in.
Walking into THEFACESHOP for the first time I felt like a child in a candy store. Cute packaging, affordable prices, a wall of facemasks and helpful staff of course added to the Disneyland for makeup lover’s effect. Taming my inner shopaholic (1 point for me) I left with a couple things and the Mango Seed Cleansing Butter. Wanting to dabble in the “double cleanse” and a brand new brand this $12.00 butter cleanser seemed like experimentation at a good price point.
This thick cleanser smells absolutely amazing first off. I can’t put my finger on it but it kind of smells floral yet still smells like mangos. I know perfume can be harsh on skin however I had no sensitivities to this. As for the product this “butter” melts immediately on to skin, making it easy to message. Actually the whole message part of double cleansing is really nice. While facial message helps work in the product for a deep clean it also encourages circulation and a handful of other great things. THEFACESHOP suggests you remove this by a tissue. If you’re cool with having left over tissue on your face go for it, but I highly suggest you use a face cloth. This cleansing butter is a true two-step cleansing process. While this leaves you face nourished and moisturized this also leaves your skin with a slight residue. To remove the excess product I follow with my Clarins cleanser.
I don’t think this double cleanse is for everyone even though it should be. Yes, it takes more time and you use more products but personally my skin has never looked better. In conjunction with the Clarins Energizing Gel (review here) my skin looks and feels better then it ever has. I am completely hooked on the double cleanse ladies. If you wanted to dabble THEFACESHOP’s Mango Seed Cleansing Butter is an excellent choice.
