Superdrug's take on Hot Cloth Cleanser

We have seen an era of Hot Cloth cleansers with brands such as Liz Earle, Boots, Soap & Glory and Eve Lom taking the plunge on to the bang wagon and presenting a 'unique' adaption of the product.

As far as I know, it was Liz Earle originally who introduced the concept of a hot cloth being used with a cleanser quite a few years back. It's a classic and remains my favourite till date. However I have to admit that Superdrug's Hot Cloth Cleanser is a tough competitor!
Firstly because it comes in a humongous 200ml tube, with a muslin cloth for a mere £3.99. Now this is a bargain none of its counterparts can beat.

Secondly, its easily accessible on the aisles of any local Superdrug which is a massive bonus point, considering that tonnes of consumers do not have access to fancy skincare boutiques in their area.

and last but not the least due to its superbly thick, lotion like texture and a pleasant almond oil smell. I have been using it since the past few weeks and it has improved the texture of my skin to a great extent. It feels blemish free and smoother than before.

The consistency of the cleanser being thick means that you do not get that 'tight face' effect after use at all. Skin feels moisturised instead! It works quite well at removing every last speck of make-up from the skin and does not irritate when its near the eye area.

It is rich in Vitamin E and antioxidants and is suitable for normal to dry skin. It would be a bit too rich for oily skin types I suppose, but for the price you may want to try it out for yourself.

I am hooked to this product and it is hands down, the best hot-cloth cleanser in the market in my opinion. Oh, and I know one can be lazy but always try and use it with a hot cloth, as that way it works wonders for the skin.

Thank you for the tip! I've heard good things about their line of mud masks recently so I'll be giving this a look, too!

I prefer the balm formulas but agree that this is unbeatable in terms of price!

Claire said...

Thanks for this, I know what I'll be picking up tomorrow!

That really is a bargain price, especially as you get the cloth as well.

This is more purse friendly than the Liz Earle so I'll be picking up this asap!

Almond scent? Mmh I must try then! What's the actual cloth like? The one with the Number 7 is thin and disappointing, mind you here for the price I wouldn't expect the thickest cloth!!

@Lucie - its not that bad really. I have washed it a couple of times too and so far so good. It is a little less softer than the ones Liz Earle provides but no where near abrasive.

this sounds amazing!! will have to be the next cleanser I try. I love the hot cloth system too, and to be honest I always think liz earle is the best of what I try but this will be extra amazing if it does turn out to be better!
