Fetched from the 14th century, double cleansing is originally an ancient Asian skincare lesson. Resurging now into the 21st century, this age-old cleansing routine has faced an unfair share of discounted opinions. It was early in 2019 when I first heard about this ‘new’ skincare trend that everyone was either loving or hating – there was no in-between. That time, my skin was recovering from listening to the internet and using coconut oil as a makeup remover, and I did not have the guts to try another oil cleansing fad.
As I peeked out of my ‘no new internet trends’ zone, the skincare world was divided in half – a small group that was an instant fan of double cleansing and would swear by it, and a much larger group that wanted to wash their hands off of it. Maybe that small group of pro-double cleansers actually had their skincare game right, because it’s 2 years later, and the beauty industry cannot find enough prescriptions to jam into the now loved double cleansing routine. We have innumerable formulas of cleansing oils, cleansing waters, cleansing balms, cleansing creams, and whatnot. A culprit of prejudice, let me try to redeem myself by highlighting the best cleansing oils in 2021 that are doing justice to the tried and tested double cleansing routine.
