We're not supposed to use wipes - they strip our face of moisture - and we're sometimes too tired or just too damn lazy to stand over the basin and cleanse our face with cleanser and suds and water. Too often, we slip into bed with a full face of makeup yet we know our skin will make us pay.
Answering all lazy-girl prayers along comes The Skin Nerd with the dream product; the Cleanse Off Mitt.
Get this: you don't need anything other than the mitt and some warm water. Say goodbye to your face wipes forever and replace them with this award-winning and reusable microfibre mitt (it's good for all ages, all skin types and both genders), for those nights when you could really do with indulging your lazy side. Jennifer Rock - AKA The Skin Nerd - warns that facial wipes can irritate the skin and exacerbate underlying sensitivities. Similarly, cotton wool, which typically is made up of many binding agents and silicon fibres, is known to irritate the skin's top protective layer.
This baby, however, is made of tiny loops of microfibre material, which are the same diameter as each individual human head hair. The tiny loops manage to break the surface tension that binds oil and makeup to the skin's surface, gently hooking the oil and removing debris. Unlike regular, one-dimensional face cloths, this is able to scoop the makeup off with ease.
It's pretty handy for a quick cleanse after the gym too!
