“ Brand: Wilkinsons / Misc House Type: Towel „
I buy quite a few face cloths as I use them so often for drying my face after using facescrubs/washes etc.
I normally buy most my face cloths from either superdrug or boots as they have a range of colours and I know the quality is good.
When at Wilkinsons I came across the cheapest face cloth i've definitely seen.. it was priced at 20p!
Thinking it was a bargain I put it in my basket to buy. The face cloth didn't come in any packaging and was just in a pile of other face cloths with a little wilkinsons tag on it.
The tag just stated the brand, price, and that it was cotton and machine washable.
On feeling the face cloth I could tell it wasn't as good quality as previous face cloths purchased but for the price I thought it would be good enough.
However it was only when using the face cloth a few times that I really didn't think it was even suitable as a face cloth! It seemed really harsh to my skin and not soft at all. Using it a few times you could tell the difference between better quality ones I didn't think it was worth using the face cloth daily.
Being made of cotton I thought it would be a nice fluffy face towel after washing it a few times but it made no difference and was starting to wear out just above the edges.
Im glad I only bought one of these and not a whole pile at the price they were being sold.
I ended up not using it as a face cloth for very long as I didn't think it was good quality, but I guess it still came in handy for the 20p it was bought at, as when my kitchen sink was leaking I used it to clean up under the sink! lol
So rather than using it as a face cloth it has been used more for cleaning up a burst pipe!
I give the cloth 2 stars as I guess you get what you pay for and it is cheap enough for it to not be seen as a complete waste of money.. but I really wouldn't bother using it as a face cloth and think if you do purchase it, it would be more handy to just use as a cloth at hand for around the house and find another use for it!
Thanks for reading :)

I bought the Wilkinsons Right Price Face Cloth a while ago from Wilkinsons in Cheltenham for the princely sum of 22p. I do find that I can often find some good deals in Wilkinsons......true, it does have a lot of crap, but it does have some good basic bargains in there - and I was hoping that this face cloth would prove to be another one. Unfortunately, I don't think it was the best buy I've ever made and it felt every bit of the 22p that I paid for it!
This flannel is made from 100% white cotton bit it is very thin and limp and really feels very poor quality. The cotton feels pretty rough and grainy and like it's been made from the cheapest cotton imaginable. While it is something that could feasibly be used to wipe a face, it really isn't something that I'd want to be using every day on my face because it feels so rough and like a flannel version of sandpaper! In addition to this, it frays very easily and started to look ragged after just a few uses - and so I think it might be the type of thing that might be useful if you were going backpacking or something and wanted something disposable that you didn't have to keep carting around.
While it can be washed, the more you wash it the thinner it becomes. I learnt after a few uses that I wasn't going to use it on me or my children, but I did use it on my dogs for a month or so. However, after a months very occasional use, I had to bin it because it was just threadbare and not really any use for anything.
While 22p sounds like a bargain, I would suggest keeping your 22p and not buying this product!
I own a lot of flannels. The reason for this is that I use them to remove the likes of face masks or for scrubbing off say fake tan that is stubborn and I tend to use them once and wash them straight after using them and thats the reason I have a stack of them.
I have what I consider to be my best flannels, ones that are Egyptian cotton no less and soft, fluffy and bouncy but they don't get involved with really dirty tasks.
Because I use alot of my flannels for somewhat mucky jobs if I see them cheap anywhere and they feel good enough quality (not one bit hard) I will buy them and these Wilkinsons Price Right Pure Cotton Face Cloths costing a mere 25p each seemed worth a go to me.
My cloth simply came with a red label on it telling me what it was and then on the other side that is cotton and machine washable and contact details for Wilkinsons are given. Simple label to remove, this is.
The cloth itself is white and I have only seen this option of colour available. It's slightly rough material and doesn't feel at all fluffy and it is a bit thin but when I picked it up in store I felt that maybe that cotton it is made of would go softer over time (Iwith being used and washed).
It is a large square shape and is edged which means the edges are sewn so it doesn't fall apart. Other than that it is incredibly plain looking.
As I have already mentioned this is machine washable on a 40c wash and depending on what wash products you use it can come up clean. I haven't found it to go softer really over time through washing but at the same time it hasn't gone thread bare or anything like that and has held together very well.
Basically this is an economy face flannel and although it isn't rubbish quality it really is only worth the 25p you'll pay for it at the same time!
