The Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse is a 2-in-1 cleanser created by skin care deity blogger Caroline Hirons and (I’m sure it’s clear now) one of my favourite skin care brands: Pixi by Petra. Those two uniting to create a cleanser is like when Michael Jackson met Quincy Jones to record Thriller or when Steve Jobs met Steve Wozniak to start Apple: a match made in heaven.

So, what is it supposed to do?
The Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse will thoroughly cleanse your face (duh) with a bunch of skin-loving ingredients.
The solid oil will protect, condition, nourish, heal and moisturise your skin.
The cream cleanser will promote collagen production, relax fine lines, plump and protect your skin, improve cell renewal and elasticity.
What I think of the Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse
Well, I think it’s the best makeup remover I have ever tried and I can’t get enough of it. The cleansing oil melts full faces of makeup, waterproof mascaras, gel liners, and Halloween makeups in no time. All it takes is a quick massage of the product onto the skin. Wipe off with a warm cloth, your makeup will be 95% gone and the cleansing cream will take care of the rest. The Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanser will leave your skin clean, feeling fresh and soft, and fully prepared for the rest of your skin care routine. Of course, you can use it as a PM cleanser even if you haven’t been wearing makeup (it’s highly recommended to double cleanse even if you’ve just worn SPF).
However, the huge drawback is that you run’ll out of it very quickly because there’s just not a whole lot of product. I know the spatula is provided so that you can use the appropriate quantities, but I’m not an appropriate kind of girl. I like to get my fingers in there. I’d love to see this come in a 2x 100ml jar. I don’t care how big or expensive it would be, I can’t picture my life without the Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse.
