I have just started a cleanse + polish 'regime' using Sanctuary cleanser and the muslin cloth which came with it. Loving it so far but was wondering if a regular cotton flannel would do the job just as well, or possibly even better as it's a bit rougher. Any thoughts? TIA
i use liz earls cleanser and sometime use a flannel, i like to use a clean cloth each day and don't have load of muslins, when you wash don't use softner, i do find over time the cloths soften. I think i prefer the feel of muslins but wish they wasn't white,my makeup stains them.
toptip (or maybe dull, crap tip - you be the judge): If you like the whole Eve Lom shebang with the fancy muslins - you can cut cheapo baby muslins from asda into 4 and they do the job just as well. Then you can have loads, and bleach the hell out of them as and when. They exfoliate etc just as nicely as the Eve Lom ones, and you don't feel such a self-indulgent money-wasting princess so extravagant paying £££ for a glorified hanky.
I use flannels. I don't like the way the muslins scrunch up into nothing in your hand, and the flannels feel pretty much exactly like the 'facial mittens' the therapist uses to remove the cleanser when I used to have Guinot facials.
Wilko's do 5 flannels for a quid IIRC (disclaimer: other flannel retailers are available) Happy cleansing OP but I am a bit disappointed as I thought this was someone posting in the style of a Jane Austen heroine.
ROFL Olivia - 'muslin is so pretty but it picks up grass stains as I trudge over miles of parkland to gaze on Mr Darcy's estates. Flannel wears much better but AIBU to think it makes me somewhat masculine?'
