As a beauty blogger, skin care is super important to me. Whether we want to believe it or not, if our base is not looked after, no matter how good our makeup is, it will not perform to its potential. Therefore, not only removing my makeup, but also removing any dirt and pollutants from my face is extremely important to me. For about a year and a half, hot cloth cleansers have been at the heart of my routine. If I am honest, I have always been an avid Liz Earle user. However, after coming across a number of reviews regarding the Superdrug Vitamin E, hot cloth cleanser, I thought I’d give it a go.
What I love about hot cloth cleansers is that they just get down to business and remove dirt and makeup. For example, when I use a regular face wash, I still need to use Micellar water to remove any excess dirt. However, with hot cloth cleansers this is not the case. The Superdrug version is no exception. It has performed exceedingly well at removing makeup and dirt at the end of the day. I also like to use this in the morning to remove any dirt and bacteria that may have accumulated during the night.
Just as the Liz Earle cleanser, the Superdrug version claims to cleanse and moisturise with Cacao butter. The only major difference that I can find is that it does not directly claim to tone the skin as the Liz Earle one does. However, for nearly £20 less, I don’t think this is something to complain about. Another difference to note is the texture of the cream. The Superdrug cleanser is extremely thick compared to Liz Earle. However, although some reviewers have said that they do not like this, I personally do. Not only do I find it extremely moisturising but it has also meant that I am using less product. I have always found that my Liz Earle cleansers run out so quickly and for nearly £30 this has always been a problem. Therefore, for a product that costs £4.99 to be lasting significantly longer, this is an added bonus.
Now another obvious benefit to this product is the fact that it contains antioxidants and vitamin E. Therefore, not only does it remove dirt and pollutants that we don’t want on our skin but it is an anti-aging product also. Now I can’t vouch for it being good at anti-aging by saying it has stopped me having wrinkles but my skin does feel cleaner, smoother and more hydrated. One thing to note however, is that on the Superdrug website, quite a lot of the reviewers have claimed that this product broke them out. For me personally, it has done the complete opposite. When I first started using this, I was suffering from a really bad break out. However, within a couple of days of use, my skin massively calmed down. Therefore, the only thing I can think of as to why these reviewers’ skins are suffering is due to their skin type. This product is specifically designed for normal to dry skin. It has a lot of oils and therefore if you do have a more oily skin type I would probably stay away from this. I can imagine that a mixture of the oils in your skin and in the product will increase the chances of a breakout. However, if you are someone with normal to dry skin I would strongly recommend this. It is extremely moisturising, it has brilliant skin care benefits and it is great at removing dirt and makeup.
For £4.99 you can pick up a 200ml bottle and a muslin cloth, which to me is just an excellent bargain. Buy here
