I got one of these with a sample of cleanser from Sephora. Can't say much about the price since I don't know how much they are but I'm sure they are somewhat pricey. The product is great, thought. I have very oily, acne-prone skin that seems to do better with exfoliation. This cloth is soft, yet just abrasive enough to feel like it is cleaning my skin. Didn't know soft and abrasive could occur with the same product but it does. I would buy another one of these. I will use this one until it starts to get worn out and see how I feel. So far, so good!
These cloths are positively remarkable. I'd long thought "what the HECK, they're just WASHCLOTHS, for pete's sake" -- ohhhh, I was so wrong. They make my evening cleansing ritual so much easier (I can merely rub my cleansing oil into my skin, run a wet one of these all over my face, follow with a swipe of koh gen do cleansing water, a little serum and some moisturizer and I am DONE -- I've got it down to where it takes little longer than running a cleansing wipe over my face, and the results are so much more gratifying) and they easily rinse clean like magic. Hang it up to dry and it's ready to roll again come morning. I cannot remember my skin being this happy, and the only thing I changed in my regimen was a swap from [whatever brand] lazy, pre-moistened cleansing cloths to these -- WHY did I wait so long to give these a shot?! (Note: I still use my beloved Clarisonic Pro when I shower -- but I swear sometimes these are doing an equally good job at exfoliating...)
I received a sample Eve Lom Cleansing Cloth along with a sample of her cleanser and mask from Sephora - maybe used 100 points to get it? Anywho, one try of the muslin cloth & I was hooked. (Not hooked on the cleanser at all & see it gets low reviews here.) I've since ordered a 3-pack of the cloths & am in facial heaven with them. They are magically smooth, yet offer amazing friction, so your skin is beyond baby-soft when you're done. Truly amazing. I do not wash them after each use, as I rinse them out well & hang them to dry - no bacteria issues, or any others.
Yes, expensive, but everyone says they last forever, so I'm on-board big time. It's the most natural way to exfoliate that I know of, & I love it. An indulgence that's worth the cost IMHO.
This is the Muslin Cloths we are taalking about, yes? Well I like 'em a lot with the cleanser. But Im gonna rate them as 4 because they are pricey to buy individually and they are a BITCH to wash. I wash them in boiling water, sometimes with dettol or alcohol-based cleanser and dry them by my heater if I can. Sometimes I just dont use them and become lazy with the skin care routinue as they are sooo annoying to wash. Per one cloth you can cut it in half and sew the raw edges on your sewing machiene. Then you have to cloths for the price of one!. I am I the normal weight range with a small face so 1/2 the cloth is enough for me and I think it would be fine for most people. I wouldnt buy the cloths individually cause they are way too pricey and you could probably find similary material at the craft store. I just buy the tubs in advance and then use the cloths out of these. I use my cloths once per cleanse and I leave them in wter 10 days to 2 weeks before I wash them. Be careful though some of your cloths may get a spot of mould or two though.
Larger and more effective than other cloths - last for a long time (a few years) although when they get too soft they are not that effective any more so I chuck them into the shoe cleaning kit. Wash every couple of days - good tip is to hang an attractive plastic bag storer (I have one from Cath Kidston) on the back of the bathroom door and once washed and dried I put them back there so they are not draped all over the bathroom.
Very expensive & smaller cloths than Liz Earle so not as effective for me. Will stick with Liz Earle.
I'm embarrassed to admit how much I love these extremely overpriced cloths. They are such a treat to use. I've tried others like LE and homemade and they simply don't compare. I want to know why EL muslin feels so different than the other muslin I've bought. I have had mine for years and they still work extremely well to clean and gently exfoliate my skin. They work better than any other wash cloth I have tried. Now I just have to save to buy more.
Well I have to say the last of my eve lom cloths has finally bitten the dust but I have had 12 good years use out them so you can't say fairer than that can you.
However while I do really like them (they have more 'bite' than Liz Earle's cloths) I just haven't the budget to spend £12 for 3 just at the mo so I have bought the Dr Haushka (sp) ones off ebay and so far I am really chuffed with them. I got 3 for £5.99 and just like my Eve Lom ones they too have 'bite'.
The reason I don't like the LE ones is because they are too soft and clump up when I'm cleasing (they get better with use however) so it's taken a while to find some with the same weight as the Eve Lom ones, now lets see if they last 12 years too!!!
I have to say that these are the best muslin cloths full stop. Oh yes I have been down the "oooh-these-are-expensive-lets-try-muslin-squares-from-mothercare! route and I even got my poor mother to hand stitch and roll the edge, but they are not the same. And much as I love Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish her cloths are far inferior. I don't know what it is, whether it is the weave, the size (they are pretty large and don't shrink in the wash) but they are the best I have used, and I have some which are more than 10years old and still do the biz.
love this clothe! i like to use this when i am removing masks...hate the price though...so far havent found another muslim cloth as soft as this! reminds me of babies nappies though...
