Whilst I don't think I will ever run out of Soap & Glory products thanks to the purchase of a massive bundle before Christmas, I do always keep my eye out for something new to try especially when there is a 3 for 2 offer on.
I have been using The Simple Kind to Skin wipes and I really liked them, sadly having run out of them, Boots didn't have any in stock either so I looked around for something similar to use because work is really busy right now and I am doing early mornings and late nights, so I want to ensure that I can keep my skin cleansed, toned and moisturesed as much as possible and much of the time that means on the go, so facial wipes are the perfect solution.
Soap and Glory now have a 3-in-1 facial cloth called CLEAR HERETM CLEANSING CLOTHS - Deep Pore Purifying T-Zone Cleansing Cloths which retail at £4.50 for a packet of 25 cloths. A little more expensive than I had been paying but they were included in the 3 for 2 offer and well I hadnt tried them before, so I quickly purchased them.
These cloths are designed for Oily/Combination Skin and marketed with the following blurb "3-in-1 cleansing, toning and skin smoothing cloths. Infused with slow release Poreshrink-RSTM acid free exfoliator formulated to fight spots and blackheads". Which is exactly what I am wanting and looking for and because they are aimed at people who have combination/oily skin I find them especially appealing because I have an oily t-zone and tend to sway in favour of products which mention helping to deal with this problem. The packaging for these cloths comes as no surprise that it is a very bright fuchsia pink and in the middle of the packaging is a white label featuring the Soap and Glory Logo and then everything you need to know about the product and what it does along with some instructions on how to use and what they contain. The packaging is designed so that you can reseal it, this means the cloths remain moist and fresh throughout the whole time you are using them.
The reason I like facial cloths so much is because they fit in with my hectic working lifestyle during certain times of the year and give this packet isn't overly huge, it fits into my handbag without any fuss and I can carry them with me should I feel the need to use them and likewise when I am away overnight I can pack them in place of three separate products for ease of use and storage.
Inside the cloths themselves are really nice and moist and they are also quite fragrant and fruity and you get a definite hint of the well known Soap and Glory aroma. The cloths look exactly like any other facial cloth you might have used and the instructions for use simply state that you can use them once or twice a day and you wipe the cloth across your forehead and then down the centre of your face, around your chin before finally wiping them around the sides of your nose. Then should you feel the need to, you repeat the process. Then once you are finished you can simply flush your used cloth down the loo and that's the end of that.
When it comes to the ingredients and what is actually in the facial cloths there was no surprises, thankfully. The main things I noticed was Lemongrass oil which helps keeps your pets free from ticks and fleas but on your own body it helps to clear up oily skin, opens up the skins pores and tones the skin. Mandarin Oil, which helps to increase circulation to the skin and is therefore good for preventing stretch-marks. Then Orange Oil which helps eliminate toxins from the skin and helps to decongest the skin, so for those people who suffer break-out of spots and/or blackheads this oil is especially useful at helping to combat the issue. The finally the last one to note is Green Tea extract which helps to soothe the skin and reduce inflammation. All of those ingredients together brings about the fruity aroma I previously mentioned and it is a really relaxing aroma which is a pleasure to smell.
After using the cloths on my face, I feel an instant freshness and cleanness to my skin which feels immediately soft to the touch and as though I have managed to exfoliate, cleanse and moisturise all at once, funny because that is exactly what I have just done, but with one product and not three.
I have now finished using my first packet of these cloths and I really really like them and will continue to use them rather than revert back to the facial cloths I originally used. My skin is left feeling soft and smooth and whilst I do suffer from an oily T-zone, I've noticed that my face looks much less shiny. So for something that makes me feel comfortable and less self-conscious it is worth every penny.
