In the beginning, a year ago, when I got these I truly thought them to be a miracle. They are wonderfully soft on the skin, really grabs dirt and removes it without effort (I highly recommend these to gardeners). The problem is, that as well as they work as wash cloths they do stain quite badly after a while, they are a pain storing (how to you store something that dries into a hard board when hung to dry?) and after a while I just stopped using them because they just started to look worse for wear. I still do use the ones I have to remove facial masks. They are excellent for that, really, truly excellent. Just wet them, pat onto face, repeat until the mask is moist again then wipe the mask away with the cloth and rinse. Saves a lot of mess and time and is much gentler on the skin than scrubbing with your hands. Though, as ordinary wash cloths go, I have found other ones I prefer that can be easily washed, hung to dry and stored. So, a four. If it was not for the staining, drying and storing a five.
Great facial cloth for removing masks! It's like a spatula for your skin. The texture of the flannel is a bit silicone-y but it does NOT irritate skin at all. It's very easy to wash out by hand if it gets stained (even machine washable). The flannel will harden when it dries - kinda like a sponge, but the second it touches water it goes soft again.

I was using the Aveda shammy cloth, which was excellent, however needed to buy a new one and decided to check this out as it's cheaper (a lot cheaper..!) than Aveda.
It's fantastic: softens very quickly with water, feels gentle on the skin, and is very easy to wash out.
Just make sure you store it properly to dry, afterwards - me not doing this with the Aveda shammy led it its demise ;-)
This cloth is especially useful if you use oil for cleansing, and for removing face masks.
It really gets makup of, and i feel like it also gently exfoliates. but i have very sensetive thin skin and it is a little harsh for me. i think it would be great for someone with a different skin type. i still use it almost everyday with some cetaphil before i go to bed, but i try not to use it more than once a day.
This is a great product for thoroughly removing makeup. I was shocked to see how much came off with the flannel after I had used my standard and eye make up removers.
I have dry but not overly sensitive skin and feel that this is too harsh for me to use twice a day (when I cleanse). I am trying it alternate days now to see if this is kinder on my face.
Great value purchase.
This product is wonderful for removing all traces of makeup, while being extremely gentle. I have sensitive skin and avoid harsh scrubbing products - this washcloth is soft and smooth. It even removes flakies when dry skin is present in the winter. Dries quickly which is supposed to decrease bacteria buildup. Before I used this cleansing cloth I would always find residual makeup on my cotton ball when using my toner. Now, the cotton swab is always clean, and it doesn't seem to matter which cleanser I use - the facial flannel makes all the difference.
My mom now uses this also and we both need to purchase another one to have as a backup! Will definitely be repurchasing!
After I scrub some of my facial cleanser on my face, I use this cloth (soaked in water so it is soft) to wash my cleanser off my face.
I also used it to help wash off excess face mask product off my face as well.
A must have - more gentle than rubbing a face cloth on your face!
I bought this when I got stuck in the airport during an extended layover and I really needed to wash my face and freshen up in the bathroom. The Body Shop was right next to my gate so I went in to look for some small size of face wash (mine was packed in my checked baggage) and wash cloth. I had remembered they had wash cloth sorts of things but never bothered to buy one because I just use a traditional wash cloth. I LOOOOOOOVE this! I would definately recommend this to anyone. This is the only thing I use to wash my face with now. I have even recommended it to people who have uber-sensitive skin or really bad cases of rosacea and can't use traditional wash cloths because they are too abrasive to their skin.
Its great to travel with because it just dries up and you can put it in a baggie and take it along. Good stuff. Would repurchase!
I'm usually a fan of The Body Shop's various beauty tools, and this one is pretty nice too. This "facial flannel" is actually quite nice tool for cleansing with. I like to use it to wipe off a scrub or mask after use. Basically it feels almost like a very thin wetsuit-like material, I know that sounds strange, but it's not exactly a cloth - it's much more sturdy than your typical face-washing cloth. It's pretty soft when dry, but when you get it wet it becomes super soft. The only drawback is when it dries out, it hardens, so you have to re-wet it to be able to use it again. It's also very durable and can be thrown in the wash. For $6, I will definitely repurchase.
