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.

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!

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.
