* MY SKIN - Combination and t-zone oily in the summer and drier in the cold winter months with dry spots and flaking. Occasional (and sometimes more than occasional!) adult acne.
* HISTORY - I've tried just about every cleaning accessory for the face including, but not limited to: regular facial washing towels, washing facial brush, facial buffer sponge, etc. You name it, I've probably tried it. And when I read about this on MUA, I was initially skeptical but intrigued at the same time. I just had to try it out!
* NOW - I love this microfiber towel! It's so very soft and gentle yet it is also incredibly effective at deep cleaning. I first lather up my face with a pea-sized drop of La Roche Posay Toleriane Foaming Cleanser and then I gently massage my face and neck with this towel, focusing extra attention on areas where I've got acne. I use the "fluffy" side of my towel to slough off any dry flakes. My skin is feels truly squeaky clean and soft thanks to this towel. The best part: my double-sided pink microfiber towel pictured above is so "handy" (pun intended) because I can just slip my hand in like a glove and use it effortlessly. And it was only €1!
* VERDICT - This microfiber towel beauty accessory discovery is a clear winner for me and it puts all the other facial cleansing accessories (mentioned above) I've used in the past to shame. Thank you MUA!

Ok, so these are cheap, right? Well, here's where I get them for even cheaper!
The automotive department @ walmart! I get a pack of 10 for $5! You can never have enough of these, and they even come in different colors. And, honestly, I think they are better quality then the one my sister bought at the dollar store...These ones are fluffier & they are sooo soft! (But do do a feel test. Some feel rougher then others. I manhandled all they had before I picked the ones I wanted)
So, these are the bombdiggity! They have a million applications around the house: they are good for cleaning fragile things that are prone to scratching (glass, metal, etc), picking up dust... I use them to clean my cat's & dog's teeth, face, ears, etc... and for what most people use them for, which is to remove makeup, cleanse & gently exfoliate. My sister wear a lot of bright/dark/heavy make up and she swears by microfiber cloths. (she cuts hers in half)
But, here's why I am in love with them: I use them to dry my naturally curly hair! If you have curly hair, you know that you need to not touch it as much as possible while it's drying. My hair takes FOREVER to dry, and so I use this to gently squeeze out extra water and encourage curl. Works amazingly! My hair dries much faster now, and it is a lot less frizzy then using a regular towel. It is jsut a little but bigger then my hand, but it soaks up a TON of water! I have bought several towels made specifically for curly hair (Curlease & Curls Like Us towels) and this works better! It is baiscly a cheaper version of the DevaCurl microfiber towel, only its FIFTY CENTS! You can buy bigger versions if you want, too, for a few bucks more, if you prefer to wrap you hair in a towel, but for me this works better - I just scrunch with this & go! My hair is dry be the time I get to where I am going, while before it could take 2 hours to dry!
I've stocked up, so I always have some clean ones handy to use for my face & hair and whatever else .... the are indispensable in my household. I use them for everything!

Me: Extremely sensitive, rosacean, acne-prone and oily. Fun times! I've had problems with my skin since I was 12 years old...mild acne, then cystic acne controlled by a round of Accutane, more mild acne accompanied by plenty of scarring in my twenties, a diagnosis of subtype 2 rosacea at 29 and now, in my thirties, generally bad, uneven acne-prone skin with the beginning signs of aging. Previous to these amazing little cloths, I'd tried literally hundreds of dollars worth of skin care products, a few "natural" remedies and even a Clarisonic to try and solve my skin woes. I wish I'd known years ago that a $1 cloth at the dollar store was the answer! I use mine with nothing but water and gently wipe off my makeup. It removes EVERYTHING, even waterproof mascara. I didn't believe it until I tried it. After removing makeup, I scrub yucky spots a little bit (acne, rosacea papules & pustules, dry spots, scars) and then rinse with water. My skin is a bit pink afterwards, but when I wake up in the morning, it's clear and brighter than it's ever been! I do the same thing in the morning, only using less pressure, top with a sunscreen and I'm good to go! I find myself using WAY less makeup (especially concealer!) and also using lighter formulas than my old heavy foundations. If you have skin problems and nothing else has worked, give these babies a try. Give it at least a week before making up your mind. That's how long it took for me to see noticeable results. I've stocked up so I'll never be out, but I will definitely repurchase when they starting looking old.
UPDATE: 1/24/11 These are overkill if used too often, I've found. I alternate now with a gentle cleanser in the morning and use these about every other night. Nothing works better at gently exfoliating and removing makeup!
ANOTHER UPDATE: 3/9/11 I've decided that chemical exfoliators are best for my skin type. Scrubbing with these cloths definitely removes makeup and grime, but my skin gets a little irritated when I use them consistently. I now save them for occasions when my skin is really flaky and then only use them gently.

I'm on the fence. I went out to the supermarket and bought something that was labeled "microfibre face cloth" (yes, that's an "re" not an "er" because I'm in Australia). It was the store brand and it came in a pack of four. It was cheap. It was made of polyester. Is this right? Polyester? On my face? I mean, polyester shirts feel itchy and I know this because I got a lot of 70s hand-me-down clothes when I was growing up. But being brave, I pressed on with the experiment and attempted to wash my face with the cloth in the shower. Holy red face, Batman! I guess I'm sensitive to rubbing or something but I never got such a bad reaction to 100% cotton face cloths, which I really do like. I had to apply a layer of Sudocrem to my entire face just to get the redness down. I will attempt to find "microfibre/er" cloths that are not polyester and perhaps update this review. In the meantime, the cloths I bought are going to be used as rags -- they are, so far, really good at cleaning the kitchen table but I will let you know if I have to apply Sudocrem to that too.

I bought a pkg of "Original Dermal Micorfiber Cloths" from Thank You Stan on Ebay.
I do not know what these are supposed to do, but I really don't find them effective. Ive used them on my face and body. I got pimples, that was about it, but as far as exfoliating, Ive used papertowel that does a better job. And I would not use the ones they sell at the dollar store on my skin. Don't people realize that the stuff @ the dollar store is cut rate because it's defective merchandise?

A couple months ago I read the reviews on the Clarisonic system after my sister told me she had purchased one. I was tempted to save up to buy one too ($200 CDN) when I found a cheap, knock-off version at Walmart (you would not believe how little I paid!!!) Then I saw a pastel pink microfiber wash mitt at my local drugstore for $2.99 and decided to try it out, thinking hey, the microfibers are great at grabbing the dirt/dust from my floor (I have a microfiber mop), I wonder if it would work on my face for dirt and makeup? Well, long answer short, yes it does. I only use my Clarisonic dupe to deep clean once a week as I do find the brush a little abrasive, but I use the washmitt every day, morning and night, and wow! My skin hasn't been this smooth and soft in over a decade! I also switched to a very gentle cleanser, Potent and Pure Creamy Face Cleanser by Kiss My Face. The combination of all these things have left me with a face I am very happy to see in the mirror! My skin looks and feels healthier, my makeup wears better, my facial products all work better as they seem to penetrate deeper, it's just amazing! Every couple of days I toss the mitt in the wash with my towels and linens, and voila! I have saved SO much money, and now I come on MUA and find others who have made this their HG too! Note, I have very sensitive and dry skin, and the dry patches have virtually disappeared since I started this routine, and no breakouts either. I want one in every color now, and at less than $3 each, I could have a dozen and still come out way ahead! My skin has never been so happy!!! :)

I use microfibre cloths around the home and was always curious to see if they would work on skin too, but a bit cautious. I started off with a 'facial' one, was pleased with that, and since have progressed to softish normal ones which I think are basically the same. In an unusually crafty impulse, I cut the large square ones in half and stitched them roughly along two sides to make little mits, as well as putting a loop on with a bit of old ribbon so they dry better. It's important to have a few so you don't need to use them for more than a few days at a time before washing. I use them just with water to take off all makeup and grease, sometimes several times a day. I follow with a light moisturiser. After a couple of weeks, I'm extremely pleased with the results on my skin - it looks better than it has done in ages - much less spotty, smoother and healthier. They clearly work much more effectively than cotton flannels. I'm starting to believe that detergents and other cleansers DO make (even oily / spotty) skin worse by drying out the skin's natural oils. It makes me feel like I'm treating my skin like a living thing - a fine bit of furniture that I would not clean by sloshing a load of cheap chemicals over. Plus I'm delighted to save money and more importantly the environment by not buying endless bottles of cleanser and face wash. Time to put the cosmetics giants out of business!

I really wish I could use these on my face but I would get a huge pimple all three times I tried. I hardly used any pressure at all. My skin is super sensitive so I guess I can only use a chemical exfoliant.
Well on the upside... at least they make great hair towels!

I don't use anything else but microfiber wash clothes on my face. They rinse out very well and dry quickly. I use the OCM and find these clothes are perfect for that. This is one item I will buy at the dollar store because they are so inexpensive. You don't feel bad about tossing one when it has seen better days.

Yep, I use this product for exfoliating my face. A word of caution: go easy! I always use it with a foaming cleanser to add an extra layer of "slip," and I use it only once a week in my morning shower. I exfoliate my lips with this as well, using just water in the shower, rubbing gently. Scrubs simply do not do it for my congested skin, and this gives much better results than a washcloth alone.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette, Medium Eyes: Green
This is way better than using a wash cloth IMO, it's a lot softer and I think it picks up more dirt/MU. That being said, I haven't noticed any huge improvements or anything in my skin. I bought one of these online but then I saw that they were sold at the dollar store lol!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Black, Wavy, Coarse Eyes: Brown
I bought these in two sizes: a very big one the size of a regular towel that could cover my whole head and small ones for my face. I tried using these to exfoliate my face for a few days and first of all, I have pretty dry skin from using benzoyl peroxide and aha for my acne and this did exfoliate a little bit but not very well, not better than my regular scrub. Also, I find that rubbing this on the skin to exfoliate kid of tugs on it and if I try to do it for longer, it gets my skin quite raw but not super exfoliated like I want it to be. Then, I also used the big one on my hair. I would lay it out onto the floor and drop my hair onto the towel accordion style and then wrap it up like I saw in this one video for jessie curls or something like that. It did work in the sense that my naturally wavy hair came out of the towel less frizzy and the waves are more defined and wavier than usual. However, I would not follow through like the video says and dry it w/ a diffuser. I've tried to sleep w/ the towel on but that doesn't work too well b/c it comes out wavy in the morning but it is a very untamed, frizzy and messy kind of way. I generally keep this on for fifteen minutes from when I first get out of the shower til about thirty minutes max and it does give me quite nice waves but really not too much of a difference from my regular towel since my hair is quite thick and not very frizzy in the first place. I was just hoping it would enhance my waves but it seems to not do it that much better than a regular towel.

*UPDATE* I have finally realised that this is too harsh for my sensitive
skin and I will no longer be using this method :(
I love how this towel leaves my face feeling after I have used it. Once I've used this I really feel that my face feels lovely and soft. Would recommend to someone who hasnt tried it =)

I do not live w/o tons of these microfiber cloths & towels in my home & in my life. They are amazing for absolutely EVERYTHING - kitchen, bath, beauty, travel, kids, pets, cleaning, crafts, automobile - you name it!
I don't know how life would go on w/o them. And am happy their cost has lowered over the years. I remember when they were tremendously expensive about 10 yrs ago. Now I can find them everywhere for just a couple dollars & in convenient multi-paks. Thank God.
My #1 favorite use for a microfiber towel is to really soak up all the excess water from my hair after a shower. Really speeds up hairdrying time.
I don't use these cloths to scrub or wash my face but rather to dry them after cleansing & remove any leftover dead skin cells after exfoliating in the shower.
For travel these towels & cloths are amazing b/c they are super-lightweight & thin, taking up so much less space in luggage than regular terry towels.
Nothing polishes up my glass & electronic surfaces like a lint-free microfiber cloth (including glasses/sunglasses & gem jewelry)
Wash these w/detergent & very hot water, then tumble dry. No fabric softener! No bleach! These will ruin the cloth's magic absorbent abilities.
I keep these everywhere - home, work, cleaning cabinet, purse, luggage, & if I had a car I'd keep one there too!

I love how quickly this dries. I just use hot tap water and this towel to wash my face and all my makeup comes off. (I wear mineral makeup foundation, powder, and sometimes I will wear lipstick, but eyeshadow and liner and mascaras are not an everyday thing for me. Eye makeup does not all come off with this and I would need to use a cleanser in that case). I first use hot water and just steam my face with the wet hot washcloth. Then I steam again when it cools. And then I use the hot wet washcloth to wash my face, rubbing lightly but thoroughly. I follow with a homemade facial oil of jojoba oil and essential oils that are in Decleor Arromasense. Off the top of my head, they are ylang-ylang, bay, geranium, rosemary, and lavender. If it is evening, I may skip this and go straight to my night cream (right now it's alternating nights of Neutrogena deep wrinkle night cream and the Roc retinol correxion night cream on top of Ambi fade cream. Every morning I use my facial oil mixed with a few drops of homemade vitamin c serum. (See my review of my latest vitamin c concoction) My skin looks awesome. Some nights when I am putting the fade cream on after washing my face with just hot water and a microfiber cloth, plugs of dirt come out. I haven't had a pimple or blackhead since I started using these about a year ago.

Well the Dollar Tree is where I purchased this gem! After reading the reviews I trekked to the closest dollar store and searched for this. They only had the hand towel size. I bought one and cut it in half. I LOVE this wash cloth. It works wonderfully with my creamy cleansers. A word of warning, do not be fooled this baby is powerful! I do not use it without a cleanser. To rinse my face I soak it and gently press it on my face. I do NOT rub as it can be abrasive for for my combo skin. I have since purchased several more. They launder well. For the price that cannot be beat I HIGHLY recommend. Thanks MUA reviewers for sharing!

This is an HG for my dry, acne-prone skin. I would never have even though about using this for my face until MUA! No matter how much I exfoliate or how well I moisturize, I always have flakies (chin, cheeks and right above the nose area) on my skin because it's so dry. And of course, my makeup doesn't go on well because of it. This is a cheap, perfect solution to the flakies problems. It gets rid of the all dead skin without being too harsh or harming any of your other skin. Just don't scrub too hard because you could actually make your skin raw. I use this every single morning so my makeup goes on more smoothly and sometimes at night. This coupled with Aquaphor gets rid of every single flake, which is a miracle for me! I do get weird looks for using this on my face since most people use it on their cars and for cleaning, but oh well! Try this! Your skin will look so smooth, and if it doesn't work, you can using it for something else!

I've been using microfiber washcloths for over a year now for the purpose of getting my face clean, and not for exfoliating. I have rosacea and oily, sensitive skin. I purchased the expensive, much hyped Clarisonic a few years ago and it proved to be too harsh for my sensitive skin. My morning and night routine is to lather my face, using my fingertips, with a mild cleanser. I then use my wet microfiber cloth to remove all traces of the cleanser and/or makeup. My face is less red and using this cloth has greatly reduced the number of blemishes that I get. I purchased my cloths at the local Dollar Tree in the bath section. I like the fact that the cloths are just the right size and thin, which means that they dry on the towel bar quickly. I have washed them 50 or more times and they look practically new. When I travel I take a few with me in a plastic bag because I cannot bear to use a regular, scratchy washcloth ever again. I own several colors but I like the white ones the best because after rinsing the cloth several times while cleaning my face, when I no longer see any traces of makeup, I know that my face is squeaky clean. Some reviewers have stated that these cloths are too abrasive, but I have found that they are so much softer than a regular cotton washcloth. Maybe there is a difference between the kind you buy in the automotive department compared to the ones sold in the bath department. If you have sensitive, acne-prone skin save yourself a lot of money and try these washcloths before you try anything else.

I am really torn by this. I think this cloth imight be alright if used to apply a foaming cleanser with lots of water, but I use cream cleansers and need a cloth to rinse. I feel like the microfiber tugs at the skin which is obviously a no-no. Use with caution.

I LOVE THIS PRODUCT.
I purchased just a regular cleaning microcloth and i found it abit too drying to use on my face because it cleaned SO well. However I use this on my body in the shower and it leaves my skin squeaky clean. I use to get the odd pimple on my back but since using this, haven't even had one.
It's also really cheap and you can just throw it in the wash or replace it for $5.
