Dig Beyond the Surface With Our Deep Pore Cleansing Duos

While “SPF all day” is the golden rule of skincare, "wash your face" definitely takes second place. A clean face is a healthier one—and ultimately, one that's better able to absorb and benefit from the skincare you apply afterward. Double cleansing takes that goal one step further. 


Typically, the concept behind double cleansing is to use a cleansing oil or balm to first remove the debris of the day, and then follow up with a regular cleanser. The initial emollient oil cleanser bonds to makeup and  debris of the day , clearing the way for your regular face wash to cleanse your skin and effectively allowing the rest of your skincare to properly do its thing. Imagine mopping your floors before you sweep them; you want to remove the dirt before cleaning the skin, otherwise you’re just spreading it around.

As our pros say, cleansing with Tuel’s Deep Pore Cleansing Duos isn’t difficult, but it is different. Our cleansing duos not only cleanse, but nourish your skin due to all-natural ingredients tailored for your skin type. We start by using a nutrient-rich cleansing oil to dissolve surface  sebum and go deep into your pores, drawing out more dirt than your average cleanser. The process attacks all potential issues such as pollution, makeup, sweat and grime. The second step uses an herbal toner that renders the cleansing oil,water-soluble to cleanse thoroughly and gently exfoliate, all while adding hydration back into the skin and keeping everything ph neutral. 


One of the most common double cleansing myths is that acneic (acne)  or combo/oily skin types should avoid oil, which actually isn’t the case at all. When it comes to our oil cleansers, everyy skin type can use them–and yes, that includes oily skin. In fact, double cleansing is superior for these skin types over the more common styles of cleansing, as many cleansers for acne or oily skin tend to dehydrate and change the ph, which is not beneficial at all.  


Out of our illustrious duos, the Deep Pore Cleansing Oils lend themselves to having more benefits that surpass aiding skin on our faces. Brows, lashes and beards  are conditioned and strengthened under the myriad of replenishing ingredients found in each cleansing oil. So safe to say, you can spend extra time focusing on these areas in your routine if they need a little TLC.

Fun fact: since cleansing oils are meant to bond to debris, try using a couple drops on your makeup brushes! The oil bonds to the old makeup, allowing the bristles to be gently cleansed and nourished,  just as it would with your lashes and brows. 


When it comes to moisture and hydration, our bodies can’t be afterthoughts. After all, the skin is our largest organ, and therefore our first line of defense. Because of the cleansing dous’ natural formulations, those who experience flare-ups from eczema, psoriasis and rosacea can benefit from the double cleansing process. We recommend treating the affected areas just as you would the face, while finishing off with our Super Soothe 2 in 1 Calming Mask or Moisture Plus Nourishing Mask to give your skin a reboot.
