Beauty Panel: Neutrogena Double Cleansing Method

Are you washing your face correctly? Your regular cleansing routine may be leaving a lot behind, resulting in breakouts and dull-looking skin. That’s why NEUTROGENA® wants to get the word out on the double cleansing method, a popular skincare trend in Asia that promises to leave your skin feeling cleaner, looking clearer and more radiant.

We asked our Beauty Panel to test out the Neutrogena double cleansing method for themselves. Each panelist received a set of Neutrogena All-in-One Make-up Removing Cleansing Wipes and a Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser. They had to complete the two-step process by removing their makeup with the wipes, then washing their face with the cleanser to get rid of any leftover impurities. After just a few days, they reported back on the results. Read on to find out what they thought.

I’m going to be honest (which is a shock, I know): to me, face cleansers are like Russian roulette, in that my skin is hugely temperamental and tends to hate 99% of every new product I try. But here we are. To start, I committed. I really committed. While I normally only muster up the strength to use a face wipe before passing out every night, I abided by the two-step regimen and accompanied said Neutrogena face wipes with the Neutrogena face wash as well, telling myself it would all be worth it.

Spoiler alert: it was! At least so far. Since my skin tends to vary depending on what time of the month it happens to be, I can confidently state that as of now, my face hasn’t broken out (the way it normally does when I stray from my tried-and-true face routine) — which is an actual miracle. That being said, hit me back in about a week or two, when my skin tends to morph into the worst scenes from The Revenant, and I’m left wondering how at 30, PMS still equates my high school nightmares.

I’ve never followed a double cleanse system before and was worried using the Neutrogena wipes and the foaming cleanser would dry out my skin; but I was pleasantly surprised that wasn’t the case at all. Although gentle, this double cleansing method took off my makeup with ease and didn’t have me rushing to moisturize right after. Adding a second step wasn’t at all time-consuming either. It simply left my skin feeling much cleaner than if I’d stuck with either of the products alone. It’s a system I’d keep using ” especially when I wear heavier makeup.

I was lucky to film a double cleansing tutorial video for Neutrogena (watch below), which meant I literally spent an entire day on set, cleansing and double cleansing, take after take, to make sure we got the shot. I decided to test the wipes and foaming cleanser, and the method, a week before the shoot to make absolutely sure my skin was used to the products before the big day. My typically sensitive skin reacted really well to the products; no redness or irritation in sight. The breakout that was starting to form a few days before trying the double cleansing method vanished, which was a huge relief (nobody wants a pimple immortalized in a commercial forever).

What I love about the All-in-One Make-up Removing Cleansing wipes is how effortlessly they remove makeup. There is nothing worse than attacking your face, pulling your skin in all directions, and filling and entire garbage bin with wipes when they are supposed to make cleansing easier, not harder! If you want something that works in just one wipe, these are definitely the best for the job. Second, the Fresh Foaming cleanser doesn’t dry out your skin. This is especially key in the winter months when we are all suffering from dry, cracked skin. Thus, with this two-step process, not only are you cleansing deeper and banishing breakouts, you are leaving your skin feeling soft and supple.

Taking care of my skin is very important to me, and properly removing makeup after a long day is a big part of maintaining that care. Of course, after a long day, it can often feel like the last thing I want to do, which is why I love anything that makes it easier! Neutrogena All-in-One Make-up Removing Cleansing Wipes and Fresh Foaming Cleanser are amazing for a quick and easy deep cleanse that gets the job done. After using these products my skin feels squeaky clean but still moisturized and soft, I’d definitely recommend for everyone to try out this new routine!

I had never used Neutrogena before, and I love skincare so I was really excited to do the Neutrogena double cleansing method with the All-In-One Make-up Removing Cleansing Wipes and Fresh Foaming cleanser. I have very sensitive skin and the wipes did not irritate me at all. They did a great job at removing my makeup and I didn’t have to tug at my face or eyes when removing, which was a huge plus for me. I wear quite a lot of makeup on a daily basis and I could do my whole face with one wipe. The cleanser was very gentle as well. It worked into a perfect foam and did not aggravate my skin at all. My skin felt refreshed afterwards. I love this combination, and having two products that are meant to work together made a huge difference on how my skin felt over all.
