In recent months, I have started to use Facebook more for joining interest groups than I have for keeping in contact with friends (although I do still, obviously), and one of the groups I have joined is Mrs Gloss and the Gloss. This group is full of (mostly) women of all ages asking for help and advice and providing opinions and the like to each other about fashion, beauty and skincare. I have lost whole lunchtimes and evenings before replying to a million posts that I can help shed some light on the query, and/or give my opinion on something, or point towards a particular product or treatment that I think is worth recommending. Sharing blog posts is not allowed (which is refreshing, even if sometimes slightly annoying if you/I have written about something that would be helpful), but you are welcome to point to people and sites worth checking out if necessary. This is a great group and very friendly, definitely worth checking out if this sounds like the sort of thing you are looking for.
Anyway, my point of this was to say that on a daily basis people share and ask for product recommendations. It was in this group that I was made aware of the Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser, and even though I was not particularly looking for a product of this type, when I was recently in a store and spotted it by chance, I thought it would be worth a purchase.
Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser
To date, the only other hot cloth cleanser I have tried is from Eve Lom that I received in a beauty box, and I liked the idea of it but I hadn’t seen an affordable alternative to make we want to incorporate it into my skincare routine more regularly. Until discovering the Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser.
The product costs £4.99 and it comes boxed with the muslin cloth inside. As you can see from the images, the packaging is simple but I prefer being able to squeeze out the product as opposed to having to scoop out the product from a tub.
As a formula, for some reason, I was expecting it to be more exfoliating but instead, it feels like a moisturiser which was a surprise. However, it feels lovely to apply and if you didn’t know it was a cleanser I think you would be quite happy to leave it on and let it absorb naturally into the skin. As it happens, this is when you rinse the muslin cloth in (hand) hot water and then polish the cleanser into and off your face. You can, of course, apply the Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser over makeup and use it as a remover, but personally, I prefer to use this product as a second cleanse so it can properly concentrate on cleansing the skin.
I have yet to have any adverse effects since using the cleanser, it works really well with my skin type (dry and oily) and I just love how my face feels after use. For the money, I just do not think you can go wrong.
Have you guys tried this out? Are there any other hot cloth cleansers you would recommend?
