I'd use olive oil - in fact I do. Skin has never been better (have always had rubbish skin) smile

getorf- is the oil in a bottle like you would but olive oil?

Poppycock - unhygienic? Bung them in with a 60 wash and they are fine - it's a bit of cleanser on your face, nothing filthy grin

This may sound like advice from a 'how to be a cheap twat' article but I genuinely haven't had such good skin since I used coconut oil (80p from an asian grocer) and then hot flannels. With a skin peel twice a week.

You don't need to boil the flannels. Please explain in a scientific way how washing them normally is less healthy than boiling them.

love the N7 one - LE one give me large spots but the N7 one doesnt

ASDA do one in the N Spa range and it smells amazing. I bought it to replace my Liz Earle when it ran out as LE is currently a bit out of my price range. I have really sensitive skin and I was worried the fragrance might set it off but it didn't.

I second the vitamin e superdrug one - LOVE it

Any cleanser and use with a muslin cloth.

I use the packs of 7 white flannels from Ikea. one for each day and throw in with hot white wash smile

I was out of C&P recently so used aqueous cream instead and used the muslin cloth to wipe it off - skin looks as good as it did using C&P and it's way, way cheaper. I don't know how well it would work on waterproof mascara etc but for removing light makeup and a general clean it is great.

Why on earth boil? Odd

Fluffycloudland77 Sun 10-Mar-13 20:30:35

I have a fresh muslin twice a day.

AlisonMoyet Sun 10-Mar-13 20:22:52

Well it's as unhygienic of rubbing something clean on unbroken skin.

suebfg Sun 10-Mar-13 20:04:53

Soap & Glory do something similar which is very good. But personally I prefer their Peaches & Clean cleanser - it is amazing

Boots No7 one is fab. Huge bottle for less than fiver if you have a voucher. Pump is 200mls so twice the size of cleanse and polish. I used C&P for years but boots is just as good(for me).

I like the Sanctuary oil cleaner which I use with the Liz Earle cloths OR ages ago there was a thread about the cold oil cleaning method see here for the method www.theoilcleansingmethod.com/

BagWoman Sun 10-Mar-13 17:55:19

Unless you boil these flannels or wash on a really hot wash the whole process is very unhygenic.

StepAwayFromTheEcclesCakes Sun 10-Mar-13 17:43:33

I AM LOVING THE DERMA FLANNEL posh flannel
sorry for shouting but yes its fab I rub in my cleanser or a foaming cleanser in and soak the flannel under a hot tap drape it over my face for a minute, then rub and rinse, its amazing my skin is positively glowing

GettingObsessive Sun 10-Mar-13 17:22:45

Another vote for No7 - smells lovely (much nicer than the Sanctuary one) and in a pump thing which is more useful IMHO.

hettie Sun 10-Mar-13 17:17:12

I've tried boots no 7 and superdrug vitamin e.... prefer the no 7 one myself...

ArcticRoll Sun 10-Mar-13 17:14:40

Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser-£4.99 at moment-usually 5.99.

MooMinCow Sun 10-Mar-13 17:05:19

Boots No7 (especially with fiver off voucher) or Superdrug Naturally Radiant one (currently half price I think). I also think you would get the same effect using any rich cleansing lotion and hot flannel/muslin!

Cybbo Sun 10-Mar-13 16:42:24

YY boots no 7 . I think The Sanctuary do one, but it's only cheaper if 3 for 2 in Boots

AlisonMoyet Sun 10-Mar-13 16:38:31

Thanks everyone. I think I'll look at the no 7 one for her
