Product Review: Soap & Glory Fab Pore Hot Cloth Cleanser

I don’t normally stray too far from my favourite facial cleansers, but the novelty of this one was too much for me to pass by. The most popular hot cloth cleanser on the market right now is probably Liz Earle’s Cleanse & Polish, and this one from Soap & Glory is along the same lines but at a slightly cheaper price point. To use a hot cloth cleanser, you apply the product to your face & massage it into your skin for around a minute or so if you have the time, and then remove the excess with a muslin cloth (in this case the cloth was provided). I actually really like this cleanser, and it’s unlike anything I’ve tried in the past. I don’t like the scent as it’s a slightly botanical, essential oil type of smell and not my cup of tea at all but moving past that the product itself is wonderful. After I remove the cleanser from my skin it does not feel tight or irritated in any way. In fact, when I hop out of the shower (which is where I tend to use it most) my face isn’t red in the slightest which is unusual for me and my sensitive skin. It also doesn’t leave my face feeling stripped and ‘squeaky clean’, it almost feels like there is a very small layer of oil left on my skin but not in an unpleasant way at all. I am now using this product sans-the supplied muslin cloth as our house guest a couple of months ago mistook it for a rag to clean the bathroom sink with (sigh). The Soap & Glory Fab Pore Hot Cloth Cleanser retails for $27.95 AUD and is available online from Kit Cosmetics. (note: this product was sent for consideration for review)
