Review: Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser

OK this is my first review so bear with me!



The first thing that attracted me to this product was the price - at £2.99 this product is excellent value. For about 6 months now I have umm'd and err'd over buying Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser however I could never justify the £13.25 price tag for 100ml of product. Plus while my skin isn't prone to breakouts I do flush easily and the wrong product can leave me with stupidly red checks so I'm always a bit hesitant about trying new skin products.

Packaging:
The product comes in a 200ml plastic squeezy tube with a good sized muslin cloth - both are inside a cream cardboard box. To be honest both the packaging and design are a bit boring however for the price tag I'm not going to complain that the packaging isn't super glamorous or eye catching.

Product:
The cleanser is white and creamy with a subtle scent. To me it smells slightly almondy but not overwhelmingly so, however I am notoriously bad at picking out scents so you'd be best trusting your own nose on on this one! You apply the product to your dry face & neck and rub in for a minute or so. I thought, perhaps stupidly, that the product would lather when applied to my face but it doesn't. However it goes on smoothly and it's very creamy. Once you have rubbed it in you run the muslin cloth under hot water, wring it out slightly and remove the cleanser with it. Then splash you face with cold water to really refresh your skin.

Effect:
My initial thoughts were "wow my checks are so red!!" however as the muslin cloth provides slight exfoliation I shouldn't have really been surprised by my skins reaction. I used the product before bed and by morning my checks had returned to their normal pink state. I also experienced a little tightness in my skin however I find this with almost every product and may just be something I'm prone to. The next morning my skin felt great - it was soft and seemed less dull and more bright than normal. I could definitely tell a difference in my skin from using it.

At the moment I am using this every other day as I think it's too rich to use on my skin every day so my skin isn't very dry. I love the results it gives and while I've only been using it a few days I'm excited to see the ongoing results. I think this is a fab product and it is a great introduction into Hot Cloth Cleansers!
