Hello my lovelies,
So I love cleansers, more recently I have been delving into the hot cloth cleanser world and breaking away from my beloved Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser. Removing make-up is so important to me. I value my skin and although I love applying make up you should make sure that you spend time of an evening taking it off. Trust me you’ll thank me in the long run!
I love getting to the end of the day knowing that I will be removing my make up with a hot cloth cleanser because it feels so damn good. There is nothing better than applying a cleanser all over your face and your eyes so you look like a panda to wash it all off with warm water and a flannel/cloth. In my eyes it just can’t be beaten and no other method of removing make up makes you feel like that.
In my February Buys I mentioned that I picked up the Soap & Glory Ultimelt from Boots I was on a hunt for new cleansers and I love the Peaches and Clean Cleansing Milk from them so much I thought it was time to try out their hot cloth cleanser..
When I took the product out of the box it made me think of toothpaste. I find it a little weird there is no pump or anything fancy but I suppose it does make sure you can use every last bit of the product up. The packaging is simple, nothing special about it which is very different to the branding of other Soap and Glory products which actually I like, it doesn’t seem childish in any way.
So it claims to be super concentrated, smoothing, revitalising and deep cleansing – like a detox spa for your skin. Now the smoothing and revitalising I completely agree with, I love the look and feel of my skin after I have used this. It feels as though I have just had a facial and everyone needs a pamper so to feel like this every evening is a winner for me.
Deep cleansing – hmm, this is a tricky one for me. It cleanses and it really does remove my make up so easily and the biggest test was my eye make up and it proved no problem. It didn’t irritate my eyes what so ever it melts everything away as it claims – it’s a dream! . A deep cleanse though? I wouldn’t say so. I don’t feel that it gets into my skin and removes all the rubbish. It does my outer layer no problem but it doesn’t do anything for my inner skin layers which is a shame.
It is for all skin types (except those that are sensitive to essential oils) which is brilliant. It doesn’t irritate my skin what so ever – it doesn’t have much of a scent either so it can’t really offend any one. I have skin that is slightly on the oily side and when I use this the cleanser removes the oils and my skin feels a lot brighter and clean.
Now the instructions say that you only needs a grape sized amount of product to apply to your face and neck for two minutes. I tried this whole grape sized amount and it didn’t do a lot for me with the make up I wear I need more than that. If you are using this product as a second cleanse then a grape sized amount would be fine but just be warned. I have used it a fair amount and I already feel like I am running out which is disappointing.
Overall, I am pretty impressed with this product. The way it removes my make up with no need for hours of scrubbing is amazing. The product really does live up to it’s name. I’m just not so sure on the deep cleansing part. I will continue to use it for the removal of make up without a doubt but I do feel I need to use a different cleanser after just to make sure I cleansed and cleaned my pores out. Which is fine if you have all the time in the world for a long, time consuming skincare routine but not if you are a busy person with limited time.
For the price of £10 I am impressed but I am not 100% about it. Which is a shame, I think I would repurchase it but I don’t think it will become ‘I can’t live without it’ product. But that’s ok – you can’t be obsessed with every product you buy. I do highly recommend checking out Soap and Glory’s skincare range it’s quite broad and there are so many things to try out. I am sure I will be visiting there stand again soon and picking up a few more bits to try out.
Have you tried any Soap and Glory skincare products – what would you recommend?
