Mama knows best : take if off ALL of it off

Rating ; CLEAN : SQUEAKY CLEAN change your life cleansing cloths ; 4 for £10 lasts forever

Inside scoop; your Mum always said take your make-up off at night, did you listen? Maybe : maybe not ; but trust me whether you cleanse’n’tone, cleanse’n’polish or just splash & dash, these super soft cloths take it ALL off fast and gently.

Cleansing is everywhere these days oil-to-cream, cream-to-oil, micellar water, cleaning milk, balm, cream, foam, oil to foam; milk to cream to oil ; it all pretty much aims to do the same thing ; GET IT OFF ; why?  So you can start again the next day!  Well there’s more to it than that, but key is clean face for a great base I say.  These cloths changed it all for me, fast, super-soft, re-usable (forever), whatever your cleansing weapon of choice these just make it better.  Pop them in the washing machine after a day or so, voila, good to go again. Oh and Mum’s top tip; give the kids a super quick once over whilst you’re at it; boom family done.
