Cleanse Off Mitt

Have you heard of the #campaignbinthewipes on twitter? I have come across the hashtag quite a few times and whilst I admit to using them, more when I am in a lazy mood than everyday, I was intrigued.


When I have had a long day at week and am totally tired out, the thought of taking my make-up off suddenly becomes quite a chore, it shouldn't be, but when all I want to do is climb into bed and sleep, it is. Then I was asked if I would like to try the Cleanse Off Mitt which claimed to "quickly remove all make-up naturally - including mascara" and all you needed to do was just add water, I jumped at the chance.


The Cleanse Off Mitt** is a microfibre knit designed to remove all of your make-up, even the most stubborn bits without irritating the skin.  Face wipes aside, I do tend to use a flannel and some warm water to remove my make-up in an evening and instead of doing that, I started to use this mitt instead, not everyday and evening because I don't believe that is the intention, but when I have had one of those days and everything other than getting into bed is going to become a chore.


So all you need to do is pop it over your hand, it is after all a mitt, then under warm water, not hot, simply wipe your face as you would do with a flannel, cloth, wipe or whatever else you might use.  The first thing I noticed was how incredible soft this was on my skin and then when I looked at the mitt, I was horrified at the colour it had turned, which you can see below.  I know living in London means I am going to be dealing with a lot of pollution, but ewww it did make me feel a little bit sick.

I have seen a few people moan that this product isn't that good, perhaps they should have read more about it because it is designed to be used as a pre-cleanse, not in replacement of.  When I use it, I use the mitt first and then I cleanse before moisturising.  The purpose being to stop using wipes which I know are bad for your skin and often strip it leaving a feeling of dryness.  So if you are about to reach for a wipe to remove your make-up and daily grime, stop, think and grab your mitt.


Each mitt has a life of between 3-6 months depending on how often you use it and it is machine washable thankfully! They are also good to use for anyone who goes to the gym a lot and shower immediately after working out and also for people who travel and worry about how many products they can legally take with them, also for the mummies and those of us on the go who want a hassle free solution.



For a mere €5 this Mitt is affordable and gets the bitpg thumbs up from me, it is hassle free and easy to use and as you can see from the photos, it does remove gunk from your face without leaving it dry.  It is reusable, hygienic, lightweight, chemical free and hypoallergenic to name but a few things.  You can purchase your Mitt via the beauty emporium.ie and it should be available in selected pharmacies nationwide over the coming weeks.
