Good skin. That’s what most of us have when we are younger and at some point it sort of goes wrong! I had fabulous skin, if I do say so myself. But as I get older it seems less angelic and more hellish. Hyper pigmentation, irritation, spots and occasionally a feeling of dryness thanks to the weather. Its just fun! It does give me a good excuse to try out new skincare products though. Not wanting to spend a fortune on lotions and potions, I decided to look at replacing my cleansing routine. I stumbled across Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser. 150ml for £2.88 (was on a special price promotion).
Why did I buy this?
Hot cloth cleansers are known to be a nourishing and effective cleanser. I needed something that would clean my skin without stripping or drying it out, and hopefully soothe it if at any point my skin decided to play up.
What’s a Hot Cloth Cleanser?
A hot cloth cleanser is a cleanser that tends to be thick in consistency, provides a good and thorough cleans and also a light exfoliation when used with a damp, muslin cloth.
What does this supposed to do?
Cleans the skin, gets rid of make up, impurities and generally grime. It has a mild exfoliating action when using a muslin cloth to remove it so helps to give skin a clean, fresh and smoother look and feel. Aimed towards normal to dry skin types.
Neutral in appearance, pale green in colouring it definitely gives me the ‘ its good for your skin ‘ vibe, with the undertone of it being somewhat natural. Comes in a plastic tube which is boxed, and houses 150ml of product. It also comes with a muslin cloth.
How to use
On damp skin, rub the hot cloth cleanser onto the face and neck by using a circular motion. Use a muslin cloth that has been placed in hand hot water, ringed out, and use to wipe off product off the face.
What I expected. Thicker than a typical lotion but more like a rich cream. White in colouring, and when you squeeze it out it holds it shape. So quite thick but not solid.
This smells clean, fresh with a slight berry/citrus tone to it. Delightful, unexpected but very nice.
I used a decent amount, enough to cover two of my finger tips. This was gently rubbed it into my face for at least a good 3 minutes. It didn’t sink into my skin and it felt very pleasurable to use. I took this over my eyes ( I am a dare devil ) and it didn’t cause irritation, despite having sore eyes thanks to hay fever. Taking this off with my the warm and damp muslin cloth was swift, easy and no residue was left. One thing I can’t comment on is how well this removes make-up as I don’t wear make up, except an eyebrow pencil. That was removed very easily though.
My skin looked super clean, fresh and looked and felt a little smoother compared to before use. This was after one application. It didn’t feel dry and didn’t look it, but my face was a touch tight. And this is only down to how clean it made my skin. I don’t actually think my face has been this clean at cleansing stage for quite some time and obviously really needed it.
This delivered exactly what it promised to do, cleanse and smooth my skin. Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Hot Cloth Cleanser was easy to use, great texture, lovely scent and left my skin feeling and looking fresher.
This cleanser should last a good 3 months used morning and night which makes this god value even at it’s full price. The gift of good skin couldn’t come any cheaper than this! If this sounds ideal for your skincare routine, get your bargain hot cloth cleanser here now.
