Soap and Glory Hot Cloth Cleanser - The Ultimelt

You might have noticed my recent obsession with Hot Cloth Cleansers. This year I was introduced to the wonderful world of creamy make-up removers with the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish, and then I tried the cheaper No7 Beautiful Skin Hot Cloth Cleanser. Today I want to tell you about my most recent Hot Cloth find - an offering from my much loved Soap and Glory - The Ultimelt. At £10 for 100ml it comes in as the midrange priced product between the two others I've tried, but is much closer in price to the luxury Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish (although, saying that, it's nearly always on 3 for 2 at Boots). This cleanser comes with one cloth which I find a bit too small for the whole face, but really nice and satisfying tube packaging. I found this cleanser to be a little less 'creamy' and a little more 'greasy' feeling on the skin, but it removes makeup very well. The greasiness didn't cause any breakouts, and all in all I experienced the same results as with the No7 Cleanser - smoother softer skin with reduced redness and less sensitivity. It's a lovely product, but for the price I'd recommend going for either the cheaper No7 offering for a very similar product, or paying that little bit extra for the Liz Earle luxury experience. 


  1. Always wanted to give this a go but I'm not too sure on the greasy feeling! Xx

  2. I've been wanting to try this for ages, but the No7 one sounds just as good :) xx

  3. This sounds brilliant, although it's still quite pricey for 100ml and I'm not entirely sure my skin would get on well with the "greasy feeling" of this!

    If you're a big fan of Hot Cloth Cleansers, I would definitely recommend the Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser, its so cheap, and easily comparible to many of the higher end versions!

    1. Ooh yes, thanks for the recommendation - I've had my eye on that one :)

  4. I love the Liz earle hot cloth cleanser :) Shame that the soap and glory one is a little greasy :( xx

  5. I'm a fan of Soap and Glory but haven't tried this product before so I really enjoyed reading this review. It's a shame this product leaves a greasy feeling rather than creamy, it's put me off it a little.

  6. Ooh this looks nice... I'm not ashamed to say I'd be suckered in by the packaging. But I already own the No7 Hot Cloth Cleanser, so will stick with that! Great review, thanks :)

  7. Not sure I'd like the greasy feeling - I can't stand to feel greasy AFTER removing everything! That being said it's just soooo relaxing to use hot cloth cleansers, don't you think?

  10. The Body Shop have a lovely cleansing butter from their camomile range, I came across this when my hot cloth cleanser was finished you should give it a try some time too. xxx


  11. not too sure if I would get along with this, my skin is quite sensitive to essential oils

  12. I got into hot cloth cleansers last year but never actually tried the Liz Earle one. However I do like the Soap&Glory one and would definitely recommend checking out the Superdrug brightening hot cloth cleanser and the Balance Me one, they're both gorgeous :) x
