What Is Double Cleansing & How To Wash Your Face

Discover how to wash your face with the double cleansing method using Charlotte Tilbury's innovative skincare cleanser range.

We know you know how to wash your face, but this guide is all about enhancing your skincare routine using the latest skin trend, double cleansing. This Korean-inspired skincare innovation is all about making your skin feel ultra-clean, purified and glowing.


You start by taking an oil-based cleanser to break down and remove any traces of makeup and dirt left on your skin, followed by a purifying charcoal cleanser to deeply cleanse and nourish your complexion. The idea is that by removing makeup then further cleansing a second time can really draw out impurities from your pores, leaving your skin feeling radiant and glowing.

    Step 1: Oil-based cleanser

    Massage your oil-based cleanser onto the face and around the eye area gently. Immerse a muslin cloth in warm water and apply to the face to melt off your makeup. For a magic steam-clean, press warm the muslin cloth onto the face for 20 seconds to open your pores.

  2. charcoal cleanser

    Step 2: Charcoal cleanser

    Massage your charcoal cleanser into wet face, avoiding eye area. Wet the muslin cloth in warm water and wash off.
