Pixi Double Cleanse: Worth The Hype?

If I had to pick a skincare item I’m most drawn to, it would probably be cleanser. My bathroom shelves are lined with balms, oils, gels, foams and creams, all formulated to remove my makeup and leave my skin feeling lush.

With this in mind, I’m pretty picky when it comes to the product itself. I’m a double-cleanse convert so I like to use something that’ll remove my makeup, and then follow it up with a cream or light balm that will deep cleanse my complexion. It’s been a mission to find a duo that ticks all the boxes!

The Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse was basically music to my ears – Caroline and I seem to be on the same level when it comes to skincare, so I had a feeling that this would be the ideal product for my cleansing conundrum!


The Double Cleanse contains two purifying cleansers to remove makeup and impurities, and leave skin feeling nourished and super supple. On the left side, there’s the Solid Cleansing Oil, a light, buttery balm that melts on contact with the skin. It melts away makeup and removes the day with very little effort. It’s a dream come true for lazy gals like me!

The second side is a Cleansing Cream, a very light formula that works to get rid of any traces of makeup and grime left on the face. It’s oh so easy to massage in, and even easier to wipe away with a damp face cloth when you’re done.

I couldn’t imagine a more perfect pairing; I usually struggle with balms because they make my eyes (and skin!) all glassy and tacky after use, so it takes a special formulation to work with my tricky peepers.
It really makes such an effortless job of removing makeup, and my complexion looks purified and radiant after use.

The price point is spot on too – £24 for two products – and Caroline mentioned on Twitter that she would be releasing individual pots of the products too.

This is really all you need to get happy, healthy skin in just a few minutes. No excuses for not removing your makeup after a late night…

Have you heard of the Double Cleanse?

  • This sounds interesting! I love double cleansing, and this one would probably be super handy for travelling too, since it´s a two in one 🙂


  • Yes and I absolutely love it. Caroline is pretty much my skin care guru – I trust her so implicitly when it comes to my skin – that I just knew it was going to be brilliant xx

    • She’s so true to her word! It’s great stuff isn’t it x

  • I love this! So nice and effective x

  • I really want to try this, I love Pixi! x


  • So cool because i was very tempted to try it out but hesitant too about the balm part, now i think i’m definitely going to give it a go so thanks Kate!

    • Balms are so hard to get right!! But since this is more of a solid oil, it’s lighter on the skin… I think that’s why it’s been such a winner for me!

  • Sounds amazing! I would love to give it a try!

  • I can’t wait to try this! It sounds amazing. I haven’t tried the double cleanse before so this seems like a perfect product to test it out!

  • Laura Torninoja

    I’ve heard so many good things about this product and it’s amazing that it’s cruelty free too! I also love the packaging – it’s so cute! I’ll need to keep this in mind the next time I need a new cleansing product 🙂

    I got this today and I am so excited to try it!!

  • I have heard about it and naturally had to order it to see for myself. And while I adore Caroline and her approach to skincare, the second cleanser is not my favorite. I guess I am a spoilt person when it comes to skincare, but my skin felt a tad dry after using it. Not much, but enough to make me wish for just the oil on its own. And it seems my wish will be granted!

  • Good article. I’ve never used this particular cleanser but I would rather use ONE cleanser that does it all.

  • Yes I’ve seen so many Youtubers receive this but no review. Thanks for telling us about this!

    I’m so obsessed with this product. I even shared it on my March Favorites post on my site. It’s so incredibly good just like a lot of Pixi products.


  • i so want this as i never tried pixi and my skin hasn’t been the one lately. luckily i can get it via asos.


  • I’ve heard lots of really good reviews of this product so it must be good x


  • Heard so much about this and I’m glad to hear you love it as much as everyone else seems to! I definitely need to try some more cleanses so I’m adding this to my wishlist x

  • Wow, this sounds amazing! <3 I'm an avid believer of double-cleansing, and it's so cool that this little Pixi product offers both in the same container! 🙂 This is actually the perfect travel companion!

    XO, Elizabeth

  • I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the Pixi Double Cleanse, so excited to hear that it’ll be released as 2 separate products in their own pots!

  • Any double cleanse product that doesn’t make your eyes glassy, is a win in my book! I will definitely have to give the Pixi Double Cleanse a try. Thanks, as always, for a great read. xoxo

  • I haven’t tried this yet! I also love cleansers so part of the reason I haven’t tried it is because I have so many to finish before I buy any more.

  • I’ve been needing to pick this up for ages, but waiting until I use up all my other cleansers! I love that it’s vegan and free of nasties, so many good reviews so far 🙂

  • Hmm, I’ve never heard of this cleanser. I have been hearing a lot of hype for a lot of Pixi products! I am running low on cleanser so I might have to give this a try. (:

    I’ve heard a lot about the new Pixi ranges but am yet to try it. I’ve nearly run out of my Lush Ultrabland cleanser and thinking I may pick this up in it’s place to give it a go! A double cleanse sounds like just what my face needs after a long day at work! xx


  • This sounds so good, and there’s so much hype around it too! Definitely need to pick one up.

    Gemma Louise

  • I’ve heard so many amazing things about the pixi double cleanse – and I mean, it does sound incredible! Caroline certainly doesn’t disappoint, this is one to try out for sure!

    I really wanted to adore this, and I do like it more than their other balm cleanser but I would probably only repurchase if they started doing full size pots of just the oil/balm cleanser as I wasn’t so sold on the cream cleanser, it kind of left my skin a bit dry and I wasn’t such a fan of the texture. Still a good product, just thought it was a bit overhyped, imo xoxo Sarah from Iheartcosmetics xx
