Do you know what Double Cleansing is?

Do you know what Double Cleansing is? And no, it is not just washing your face twice!
Double cleansing is part of the Korean 10-step beauty ritual, taking up steps 1 and 2. It involves an oil-based cleanser as well as a water-based cleanser. It’s simple really! Oil and water don’t mix, so to truly be clean you need both types of cleansing!
In Singapore’s crazy heat and sun, many of us rely on SPF and strong waterproof make-up. Without proper removal and cleansing, these could accumulate in your skin, leading to breakouts and uneven skin tone. To be truly flawless, double cleansing is a MUST!
Step 1: Oil cleanser
The first step in double cleansing is to use an oil-based cleanser to remove your SPF and make-up! Different skin have different needs, so be sure to find one that is gentle and moisturising so it doesn’t strip your skin of it's natural oils! A great one to consider would be Erborian Solid Cleansing Oil. For those of you with more sensitive skin, why not try our Erborian Cleansing Water?
Erborian Cleansing Water is a 3-in-1 micellar water that removes make-up and impurities gently. What is micellar water you ask? Micelles are tiny oil molecules that are attracted to dirt and oil, so they cling on to and get rid of impurities without drying out your skin. Micellar water can be used as a make-up remover, facial wash and moisturizer all in one! It’s true!
Best of all, it even contains a complex of 7 herbs to nourish your skin while cleansing!
Tiger Grass: Anti inflammatory, helps healing
Rosemary: Anti-stress and antioxidant
Small Chamomile: Restorative effect on dry, sensitive and Irritated skin
Japanese Knotweed: Relieves pain and treat scrapes
Licorice: Reduces melanin generation at the origin of pigmentation
Skullcap: Promotes skin lightening and mitigation tasks
Green Tea: Prevents damage caused by UVB rays
Apply the Cleansing Water to your dry skin using cotton pads. Swipe gently to remove make-up, then move on to step 2!
Step 2: Water cleanser
Now that you have removed your make-up, it is time to wash your face “traditionally”! We recommend using a self-foaming cleanser to minimize the rubbing of your skin. (The tugging of your fragile skin on your face is bad for you in the long run!)
It’s time for our Double Mousse Cleanser! Not only is it mousse-y (is that a word?), it is doubly mousse-y and doubly luxurious!
It is a 2-in-1 beauty solution. It's rich, fine foam gently cleanses and helps eliminate impurities. It then helps to visibly refine your skin's texture for a flawlessly smooth effect. Plus, it has the same 7 herbs to keep your skin feeling happy after a shower. None of that tight-skin feeling here! Just clean, supple skin that you will love.
Wanna try them both in your double cleansing routine? We have good news for you! You can get our Cleanse Genius set: Erborian Cleanse Genius which has both products at a special price.
It’s time to be flawlessly clean with Erborian!
