A while back I was introduced to the wonderful world of hot cloth cleansers. Yes, I'm aware how utterly sad that sounds, but it's been the best change I've made to my skincare routine in years. Instead of using facewipes or facewash with harsh chemicals to remove a face of makeup, a hot cloth cleanser is rubbed into the skin, disintegrating the makeup before you wash it off with a damp warm cloth. Hot cloth cleansers are a creamy consistency which is nourishing rather than stripping for your skin. I started off with the cult Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish (see my review here). I found this product made my skin softer and smoother, and reduced redness. My skin was generally happier for using a hot cloth cleanser, but if this was going to be a staple in my routine, I wanted to find a cheaper alternative. The Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish * is £14.75 for the 100ml pump bottle with two cloths, whereas the No7 Beautiful Skin Hot Cloth Cleanser is £9.95 for 200ml, which is double the amount of product! The packaging for the No7 offering feels quite high end, coming in a cute box, and with a very decent pump. The cream has an inoffensive light scent, but it's nowhere near as relaxing and spa-like as the Liz Earle one. When rubbed into the skin it's not quite as thick and creamy as the Cleanse and Polish, but still disintegrates the makeup well. The cloth included in the box isn't very nice and is almost scratchy, but I don't think it's fair to complain about that for the price. I would recommend that you find a different muslin cloth to use with it though. So, the results? My skin has continued to feel less tight and less sensitive. The redness has mostly stayed at the reduced level, and my skin is still soft, but not quite as smooth as it was when using the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish. The Cleanse and Polish will be something I'll buy as a treat, or perhaps before a big event, but the No7 Beautiful Skin Hot Cloth Cleanser is a great hot cloth cleanser for the price, and is now an essential in my daily routine.
