For the last few weeks I've given up my usual face care routine (you can see my usual products here.) and I have been trying out a new little product.
The Fab Pore Hot Cloth Cleanser contains panthenol (vitamin B5 - reduces wrinkles, is used to help acne problems, helps repair skin damage), sweet almond, orange and lavender oils.
clean over backwards instructions on the back of the tube read as follows:
'Squeeze out a generous splodge of The Fab Pore Hot Cloth Cleanser, divide it between the pads of your fingers and then massage onto your face and neck for at least 60 seconds (concentrate most on your nose, chin and other clog-prone spots.) Leave on for another minute (if you're too 'type A' to wait fill the time by flossing,) then press it all off with a warm, wet muslin cloth.
When using The Fab Pore Hot Cloth Cleanser to remove mascara, follow with meticulous rinsing. The cleansing cream is infused with a blend of essential oils which (while amazing for most) may cause irritation on extremely sensitive skins.'
The smell of this product might now be for everyone, but I love it. It's a real natural oils kind of smell. It's quite strong when you apply it, so be aware of that.
Now this product is meant to melt away the makeup and grime on your face. And it does! After leaving it on for the required amount of time, it removed all traces of my makeup.
After I've applied it, I move onto another task (like brushing my teeth) while I wait for the minute to pass. The texture of the cleanser is quite thick and creamy.
The cleanser comes also comes with the muslin cloth, which is now an important step in my skin care routine. Not sure what the benefits of using the cloth are? Well, I'll tell you!
A muslin cloth has a gentle exfoliating texture that helps leave you skin soft and smooth. No wonder my skin feels so amazing afterwards! Combine the cloth with a gorgeous cleanser and you have the softest skin you can imagine.
The cloths also help remove all traces of makeup and grime, whilst still being extra gentle on the skin. No needs for rubbing and scrubbing.
They are reusable. Just stick them in with the washing, and you can use it over and over again. Keep a few handy, so when one is in the wash you still have a backup to use.
The open weave design of a muslin cloth allows it to dry quicker. This helps prevent bacteria growing.
After a few weeks of use, I can say I am so happy with the results of this product.
I have been also using this in conjunction with the Soap and Glory Make Yourself Youthful Rejuvenating Face Serum (you can read more here.) and my skin is just glowing.
This product will be great for those with sensitive skin. It doesn't dry out the skin when applied and you can easily use it to remove eye makeup without any sign of irritation.
I've noticed my blackheads on my nose clearing up and my pores are much smaller.
(and who couldn't fall in love with the gorgeous Soap & Glory packaging!)
If you're looking around for a new cleaner, consider giving this one a go.
The only downside is the waiting time. If you're one of those people (like I am sometimes!) that just can't be bothered and wants to just fall into bed wearing a full face of makeup at the end of the day, or has about 5 seconds to get out the door for work in the morning because you slept in - make sure you have a backup for those times you want a quick solution.
Have you ever tried using a muslin cloth with your skin care routine?
