How truly effective is the Korean Double Cleansing?

double cleansing technique
One of the good things I’ve realized in running this women’s lifestyle weblog is having a chance to discover new beauty techniques and constantly testing new beauty products available. I tell you I even can’t remember how many beauty products are now in the market (a hundred thousands, perhaps?) and one of our quest is to find the right one suits for our needs and skin-type.

So for today, I’m here to share you my personal take on the Korean Double Cleansing technique.

This is what I love about Korean cosmetic industry. They keep on innovating and discovering new beauty products that suits every skin-type for all genders of all ages.

Since last week, I’ve been testing the Korean double cleansing technique and see for myself how true and effective it is for me.




What is Double Cleansing?

During my pre-beauty blogging era, I was just washing my face with any available face soap I have, massaging it in circular motion and put some moisturizer after.

But that was long time ago.

Until I’ve learned that what I’m previously doing is very wrong.

And this current beauty blogging era, I’ve learned to enjoy the glorifying effect of double cleaning.

Double cleanse starts with an oil cleanser followed by a foaming cleaner – you need to use two different formula to thoroughly cleanse your face.

First you have to cleanse your face with oil cleaner to remove those sebum, dirt, including your make-up. I’m using Celeteque Advanced Anti-Aging Cleansing Oil (5ml, got this as a gift). This thoroughly washed-off all the pollutants I’ve acquired during the day, at the same time give moisture on my face.

Just put a small amount of Celeteque Advanced Anti-Aging Cleansing Oil on your dry palm, and smooth over to your dry face and neck. Then add a little water and rub your face and neck with gentle upward stroke to remove those dirt for deep cleansing.

You can also use Celeteque Advanced Anti-Aging Cleansing Oil as your make-up remover. Put a little amount on cotton balls, then start removing your make-up.


You may use Biore Cleansing Oil Makeup remover as alternative. I also gave 5-star for these oil cleansers.

Rinse you face with lukewarm water.

Next is washing your face with cleansing foam.

I use POINT Deep Clean Cleansing Foam with Moringa seed (175grams). This foam cleanser deeply cleans my pores removed all those sebum and pollutants. It has a creamy white formula and has a mild scent of Moringa.

Adding some moringa seeds to this formula, a good antioxidant that lubricates and nourishes the skin.


Moringa contains:
• Two (2) times the amount of protein of yogurt
• Our (4) times the amount of Vitamin A as carrots
• Three (3) times the amount of Potassium as bananas
• Four (4) times the amount of calcium as cows’ milk
• Seven (7) times the amount of Vitamin C as oranges

After using cleansing oil and thoroughly rinsed off, squeeze a small amount of foam/cream cleanser onto your palm, mix it with a few drops of water and start lathering it first to your palm to make it foamy. Once it’s foamy put it on your face and massage your face on upward motion. Then rinse it with lukewarm water.

Repeat doing the cleansing technique two (2) times a day – morning and night time and you’ll see its amazing result. I’ve just doing this double cleansing for a while now (and just tried this POINT Deep Clean Cleansing Foam and Celeteque Advanced Anti-Aging Cleansing Oil two weeks ago).
The double cleansing technique plus the products I’ve been using gives me that clean and fresh look, and not worrying about breakouts!

Yeah, I admit that during my pre-beauty blogging era I was a bit lazy and always in a rush in cleaning my face. And after all constantly reading and doing self-studying online, I discovered I was doing it wrong. Changing my beauty routine isn’t bad after-all! And I avoiding my laziness attitude towards skincare.

I tell you that being lazy makes you ugly.

Yup it’s true!

(But we can’t blame cats for being lazy. They are born to be that way… and they are born as cute as ever!) LOL. Sorry no cats memes today coz he’s still sleeping, ZZZZZZZZ

I think that double cleaning works on me and it’s not actually that difficult.

In order to get the positive result that we want, all we have to do is consistently doing it day and night and we will achieve that glowing look!

Okay ladies, I’m done washing my face and I’m ending my review here. Because I need to take a bath now, hahaha.

Hope ladies you’ve learned something from my quick review!


POINT Deep Clean Cleansing Foam (175grams) which I’ve purchased for Php200.00 recently at Sun Han Mart 24HR Korean-Store located at Bonifacio Global City. I’m not sure where else here in Manila you can buy it, but you can check it online through Amazon or any Korean online stores.

Celeteque Advanced Anti-Aging Cleansing Oil is available at most beauty store nationwide!




What is your cleansing routine? Have you tried the double cleansing technique? I would love to here your stories here!

    1. Hello Kyla,

      You should try it, and you can use any cleansing foam and cleansing oil available near you and suits your skin type. If you are a bit hesitant, try it first on your hand, twice a day :D It you haven't got allergies, then its good to go for your face.

      Through this beauty blogging, I've learned that there is no such thing as too much when taking care of our skin. You should do it again!

  4. This sounds like a great product and for someone with sensitive skin it would be worth trying, unfortunately we do not have most of these products over here but I will be sure to look out for it.

    1. Hello Sheri,

      You may use any substitute products - any variants of cleansing oils and cleansing foam is okay, as long as your product of choice suits your skin type.

    1. Hello Roxy,

      You can grab a cleansing oil and cleansing foam for a trial pack, most of the beauty stores give it out for free. If the products suits you, then you can buy it in full size :)

    1. Yeah so better test it first on your arm or at the back of your hand for two to three days and see if you got some bad reactions.

  11. This sounds good! Your skin looks really clean, though! I think I need to try this one out. But lately I use the Aveda Tulasara: https://esseremoda.nl/stress-away-with-tulasara/. These products are amazing! My stress bumps on my forehead are finally gone :) X

    1. Aveda is also good! I also love their body lotion and bath products, but recently forced to switch to other brands because Aveda was out-of-stock, lol.

  12. And I thought double cleansing was just doing it twice lol. I had no use you neede two different products. I think I would like the oil cleanser but having dry skin anything foamy is usually too drying for my skin. Glad you get to test out so many new products and I dare say there are indeed hundreds of thousands.

    1. The good thing about double cleansing, and using the cleansing oil is that the oil gives us moisture after cleansing. This is good especially if have super dry skin.

  13. Very interesting way of cleansing your face. I just keep it simple and use one product. This seems to give a very deep cleansing though. Nice to learn new methods.

    1. Yeah it is.. but this is just an additional technique. If yours already suits you, stay that way. :D

  14. Never even heard of double cleansing. I keep my routine extremely simple and fast. My skin never breaks out and so my mentality is, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

    1. Lucky you CJ! Weather also affects the skin to break out. We are located in a hot tropical weather which makes our skin fucks up every now and then, so that's why we're kind of obsessing to have a good skin... I personally put that on my life bible... I don't wanna see my self in the mirror wrinkled and old like a sharpay :D

    1. You must try it. Korean beauty products are almost breaking the internet, and even the big cosmetic companies in Europe and US are starting to invest with Korean cosmetic companies.

  18. I can totally relate to it. The number of beauty products available creates so much confusion in finding the appropriate one. But yes if you do find the product you are looking for, you are sorted.

  20. I was absolutely clueless about double cleansing. This post is like a wake up call for my skin regime will look out for this product

    ReplyDelete
  21. Looks interesting, you're giving me ideas to have more attention to my skin. I'm so lazy and my skin is very delicate, so it's rather difficult to find the right product.

    Do you spend a lot of time on caring about your skin or is it more connected to a few precautions?

    Replies
    1. I spend time (but not all my time) for taking acre of my skin, both morning and before bedtime. I don' have skin allergies, its just that having a good skin is nice... more reason to wear less makeup.

  22. Your skin looks great so you know this must work. Definitely worth looking into.

    1. Yeah it is, until I haven't found much better to these products, definitely I'll stick to these.

  23. This sounds like a great product and I think I need to start this one! Thanks for sharing!

  24. Hi, I use double cleansing too! It actually help removes the make-up and other excess dirt after the first wash. I use Biore for both. :)

    1. Hello Gryselle, welcome to the double cleansing club! Biore is also my favorite! And all their products are very gently, right? :)

  25. Perhaps I am the only one who uses soap for cleaning my face, but never mind that. I think fresh face is always important when going to bed, so this way or that way we can agree on one thing. Maybe one day I switch to cleansers
