Double Cleanse = Instant Glow

We have all been there…you wash your face thoroughly yet you still find make-up on your skin. Or your power-packed face oils, serums and cremes just are not working for you as well as they work for your best friend.

Why?

Because one wash just is not enough. If you wear make-up daily or live in an area with pollution or sweat from a daily work-out or have any other reason for build-up on skin, you need to cleanse your face deeply.

Removing debris (think make-up, sunscreen, product build-up, pollution, sweat) is ESSENTIAL to clearing your pores and paving the way for your face oils, serums, and cremes to sink in deeply and effectively.

If you do not wash your face thoroughly enough you block the path for all the fabulous goodness of your serums and moisturizers. They just cannot do their job well if you do not first wash well.

We have a great special going right now!

Double Cleanse Duo

Enter the Double Cleanse.

Double Cleansing is exactly what it sounds like – washing your face twice in a row with two different cleansers. The first cleanse is to gently dissolve make-up, debris, and impurities. The second wash is to sweep them all away and purify pores.

Double cleansing prepares your face to receive all the amazing goodness in your face oils, cremes, and serums so that you get the most bang for your buck.

Can I just wash my face twice?

No. It’s not that simple. Pairing the wrong cleansers can result in drying or even damaging skin's mantle as some cleansers and make-up wipes can be very harsh.

Make sure you have products paired specifically for double cleansing. For the right results pair a pre-cleanse or oil based cleanser with a cleanser that works for your skin type. At Brown Barn we recommend pairing Botanic Pre Cleanse Elixir with Willow & Iris Gentle Purifying Cleanser  or 7 Day Glow CLARIFY Hydrating Cleanser. For those with especially oily skin we recommend following Pre Cleanse Elixir with our Tea Tree & Rosemary Goat’s Milk Cleansing Bar.

Choose the Protocol that works best for you.

Double Cleanse Protocol Number 1: Layering
  1. Pump a few drops of Botanic Pre Cleanse Elixir onto fingertips.
  2. Massage onto DRY skin. Massage gently, paying special attention to problem areas, large pores, and where any build-up may occur. Pre-cleansing works to dissolve impurities and make-up.
  3. Pump a small amount of Willow & Iris Gentle Purifying Cleanser  (or your cleanser of choice) onto fingertips.
  4. Layer cleanser over your face. DO NOT rinse off Pre-cleanser before applying Willow & Iris Cleanser! You are combining them.
  5. Massage a few moments more, just until you are sure you’ve dissolved any make-up, sunscreen, and impurities.
  6. Wipe away with a warm wet washcloth.
  7. Follow up with your regular regimen of face oil, serum, and moisturizer.
Double Cleanse Protocol Number 2: Separate Applications
  1. Pump a few drops of Botanic Pre-Cleanse Elixir onto fingertips.
  2. Massage onto DRY skin. Massage gently, paying special attention to problem areas, large pores, and where any build-up may occur. Pre-cleansing will work to dissolve impurities and make-up.
  3. Rinse well with warm water or wipe away with a warm wet washcloth.
  4. Pump a small amount of Willow & Iris Gentle Purifying Cleanser (or your cleanser of choice) onto fingertips.
  5. Apply Cleanser over your face.
  6. Massage a few moments more, just until you are sure you’ve dissolved any make-up, sunscreen, and impurities.
  7. Wipe away with a warm wet washcloth.
  8. Follow up with your regular regimen of face oil, serum, and moisturizer.
How to Remove Eye Make-Up:
  1. Apply Botanic Pre Cleanse Elixir to eye area using a 100% cotton pad (avoid synthetic pads as they can cause break-outs). Work gently, sweeping from the outer area of eye inward to avoid pulling on the tender eye area.
  2. Rinse well or wipe away with warm wet washcloth.
  3. Follow a second time using the same protocol with the Willow & Iris Cleanser if you find more cleansing is needed to remove stubborn eye make-up.
How to Double Cleanse with added Exfoliation:

  4. Pump a small amount of Willow & Iris Gentle Purifying Cleanser onto fingertips.
  5. Apply Willow & Iris Gentle Purifying Cleanser over your face, massaging with fingertips

  7. Wait for 5-10 minutes while the Resurfacing Mask goes to work loosening dead skin cells.

  9. Follow up with your regular regimen of face oil, serum, and moisturizer.
