I’ve had this one for a long time but because it hasn’t been purposed as a use every day cleanser I’ve forgotten to mention it. This the Superdrug Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser I must have bought 2 or 3 months ago. It’s the first one I’ve used where it’s a thick white balm with a fruity sort of scent to it. I didn’t give this much-loved to begin with and it’s not my favourite but I trust it to do the job.
Hot Cloth Cleanser?
The idea is its thick consistency helps to lift the make up and general grime from the day. You then take the muslin cloth and run it under warm water and use this to rub the hot cloth cleanser back off. I can use it this way but I’ve found other ways I prefer and it’s become multi-purpose. The thing I’m not so sure on is the Brightening side of this as I can’t really tell the difference.
How I use this hot cloth cleanser?
I’ve mainly used this as a pre cleanse to applying face masks. Sometimes you have already applied moisturizer or even just need to clean the face to prep it for the mask. I don’t use the muslin cloth it just doesn’t feel substantial in my hands I much prefer a flannel. It’s cheaper to get more (hint a reason to go into Primark) and feels like it’s getting it all back off. This exfoliated just as well as a muslin cloth does.
This is great as a first cleanse to remove makeup. I don’t know why but this is the first cleanser I’ve used over my eyes and not worried about irritating them. It won’t get every bit of mascara off but it’s a good first step for the rest of the makeup. To me it almost feels like a nice way to massage the face while you do it after a long day especially in this heat.
The third and most recent way I used this was while I dyed my fellas hair. This basically works the same way at Vaseline does by creating a barrier. The difference is this doesn’t feels super greasy or sticky. You can get the hot cloth cleanser off after you’ve washed the dye out and you don’t end up with a dyes face. If anything you get a nice clean one instead, I can’t be the only girl to hate having to scrub stains off or try to hide them.
