Double cleanse

Is cleansing your face with the same cleanser twice (instead of using a oil cleanser), considered as double cleansing? Edit: what are some of the non-comedogenic cleansing balm/ oil cleanser you recommend? Thanks in advance!

Yeah, you dont need to specifically use and oil cleanser then a water based cleanser for it to be classified as double cleansing. Just washing your face twice with your regular cleanser is good enough (i think so anyways lol) It can be easier to remove the likes of sunscreen and waterproof makeup with an oil though.

I think its’s a No ? Cleansing oil helps you remove the oil base stuff you put on the face, so it helps you clean more deeply and helps clean what cleanser can’t. Personally, I think using twice face wash might dry up your skin ( depend on your skin n face wash )

Yes it is, as long as it is effective in removing dirt traces or sunscreen residues..

I agree! Sometimes, I even "first cleanse" with a clay mask to get the oil and sunscreen off; my face really likes that too!

No, it is not. The origin of double cleansing revolves around an oil cleanser and then followed up by a foam cleanser based on the history of Asian beauty/skincare.
