Double Cleansing

April 05, 2019

Double Cleansing

Have you heard all the buzz about double cleansing? Below you'll find a basic how-to and defense for double cleansing (with Some Call Me Crunchy product suggestions, of course)! 

Why double cleanse?

Double Cleansing is a must because having a clean canvas to apply toners and skin nourishing serums is very important. If you spend lots of money on serums and hydrating creams, but your skin isn't clean, those powerhouse products won't actually do very much. 

How does double cleansing work? 

Double Cleansing doesn't have to be super complicated and really isn't that much more work. I recommend doing the double cleanse (steps below) 2-3 times a week and adjusting the frequency according to how your skin responds (e.g. if it's drier, cut down on the days that you double cleanse). 

Here's what you do: 

  1. Use the Some Call Me Crunchy Oil Cleanser that is best for your skin type. If you're not sure what cleanser you need, feel free to email me at and ask for recommendations. We offer three versions: oily/acne prone, normal/combo, dry mature. This cleanser also removes makeup!! Win/win, right? 
  2. Immediately after cleansing with the oil cleanser, use either one of the natural soaps (Castile or Activated Charcoal) we carry to wash your face. These lather up and ensure that you're getting a clean surface to apply your remaining products. 
  3. Continue with the rest of your skincare regimen. I recommend using one of our Complexion Mists (Lavender Rose or Calendula Frankincense) and then one of our serums (Balance, Soothe, or Restore).

Tip: Don't double cleanse on days that you are using a clay mask

Book Review: Hannah Coulter by Wendell Berry
Book Review: Hannah Coulter by Wendell Berry

I underlined half the book and cried many times. Anne Bogel from Modern Mrs. Darcy puts this title in the “books to read when you feel like the world is falling apart” category and I wholeheartedly agree. In a way it reads like poetry as Wendell tells the story of Hannah, her husband Nathan, and the rest of the Port William membership. There are a handful of books set in this same town including Nathan Coulter, Jayber Crow, and Andy Catlett...

Transitioning Your Skincare for Winter
Transitioning Your Skincare for Winter

October 10, 2019

A while back, I wrote a post about switching up your skincare routine for summer. It can be so very frustrating to think you've gotten your skin figured out only for the season to change and it's almost like you're starting over at ground zero. The truth is that our skin can actually be very different depending on the season. My skin is oilier in the summer and super dry in the winter ...
