What Tool Are You Using to Clean Your Face?

It seems like everyone is gaga over the Clarisonic. I like it but I’m part of that percentage where it didn’t really change the state of my skin like it has with some people. And that’s ok. So in looking at the phenom of using a tool of some sort to assist in the cleansing of the skin, I wanted to explore other vehicles, so to speak, that cleanse and exfoliate that won’t break the bank, and here are some I came up with that you may want to consider.

DEW PUFF Asian Clay ($7 @ – made from the root of konjac (a plant native to Asia), this puff feels more like a rock than a soft puff through the packaging but not to fret, once it hits water, it soften up nicely.; almost to a jelly-like state. Use with or without cleanser and just replace it every 3 months.


WONDER CLOTH All Natural Make-Up Remover Cloth ($15 @ – seems to be modeled after the muslin a little bit. This one removes makeup and cleanses the skin nicely, not to mention it feels better running across my skin than a washcloth, and can be used over and over. And the biggest bonus is that the white cloth doesn’t stain! It says on the box that it, “removes makeup instantly with just water,” but I found I had to use some kind of cleanser/makeup remover. I love the cloth though. 


I’ve also discovered that there’s a whole underground dedication to the Muslin Cloth. The Muslin Cloth is a specially woven thin cloth made with 100% cotton that was introduced to Europe from the Middle East. It’s used in dress making, culinary, theater set backdrops (it holds dye well) and even medicine as a type of gauze. I’m not sure when people started using it in beauty but the trend seems to be gaining steam. And it’s funny because part of what I like about beauty is how things look i.e. packaging, design etc and these just look like thin pieces of white or beige cloth. So they are nothing really to look at as you can see from the below photo.

Get Superskin With Liz Earle

Liz-Earle-Moisturizer-and-Concentrate I’m sure it’s colder where you are then where I am in Los Angeles but the air out here still has a nip in it most nights! So make sure you adjust your skin care products during these colder months as you want to make sure it has the right level of moisture. Give your skin a one-two punch with two from the LIZ EARLE line. 



Superskin Concentrate ($70/1.6oz) – is comprised of 100% pure plant oils including argan oil, which is known as the ‘gold of Morocco.’ Use this one under your moisturizer at night on the face, neck and decolletage.


Superskin Moisturizer
($60.1.6oz) – contains natural plant oils including cranberry seed oil, which is high in Omega-3, 6 and 9, borage seed oil and rosehip oil. Wow. This duo is a big recommendation. Both @

Liz Earle 2-In-1 Face Treat

The LIZ EARLE line is being touted as Britain’s best kept secret and if her Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser Starter Kit ($24.50/3.3oz + 2 cloths @ is any indication of the quality of the line, I’m a believer. I’ve always been a big fan of the washcloth when it comes to cleaning my face. I use a fresh one every night with whichever cleanser I am using at the moment and the fact that this one includes using one as part of theLizearle process makes me think they know what’s up. The cleanser is a cream and contains almond milk, rosemary, chamomile, and cocoa butter among others. After working the cream in the skin, work the muslin cloth that you’ve steeped in hot water (make sure you squeezed the water out first) around the face. This is the polishing part of the course and is perfect to help remove all your makeup at the end of the day. And now you’ve cleanser and exfoliated at the same time! After cleaning your face, rinse the cloth in cool water and remove the cleanser. I think because this is a cream, I felt no tightness in my skin after rinsing. And the cloth can be washed in the machine and reused. We love reusable beauty!


Just looking around the web to find out more info about the line, I read some of the reviews on, and I don’t think I’ve seen such a high rating of customer reviews for a product. This one received a 4.8 out of 5. One user even said this is a really great product if you have sensitive skin so there you go.
