5 of the best… Hot Cloth Cleansers

5 of the best… Hot Cloth Cleansers

So today I’m starting a new feature called ‘5 of the best…’ where I’ll do a quick review of my 5 favourite items in a specific category and explain why I like them and who each one would suit. My first review in the ‘5 of the best’ series is Hot Cloth Cleansers. What is a Hot Cloth Cleanser? Hot Cloth Cleansers are a fairly new popular way of cleansing the face, whereby you apply the thick creamy cleanser to your skin and then remove it with warm water using a soft bamboo or cotton face cloth that is provided with the product. Why do I need a Hot Cloth Cleanser? The creamy cleanser removes all traces of dirt and make-up while the cloth gently exfoliates the skin to keep it looking fresh and bright. As the cloth is so soft it’s safe to use every day, compared with scratchy exfoliating creams and sponges which should only be used once or twice per week. A lot of them contain...

My 3 favourite….. Lipcare Products

This is the second in my occasional feature ‘My 3 favourite…..’ in which I choose my 3 favourite products from a particular category.

It’s sort of a cross between a lip balm and a lipstick – it has been designed to enhance the lips’ natural colour, and it reacts with your lips’ own ‘chemistry’ to make lips look pinker, fuller and radiant.

My 3 favourite….. Face Masks

My 3 favourite….. Face Masks

This is the first in a new feature that I will be doing occasionally, looking at my favourite products. Today I will be discussing my 3 favourite face masks and explaining why I like them so much. There are so many face masks out there – drying clay masks, moisturising cream masks, clarifying gel masks – it’s sometimes difficult to know where to start, so I have picked 3 products that are all great at doing different things for your skin.   Origins Clear Improvement Mask The first face mask that really makes the grade is Clear Improvement charcoal mask from Origins. I first tried this out last Summer when I received a free sample of it, and I couldn’t believe it had taken me so long to find it. I now make sure I always have a full size tube of this clay mask in my bathroom cabinet. Clear Improvement is a thick black-coloured active charcoal face mask that helps to clear the pores. It dries extremely hard on...
