the £4 Pink clay cleanser you need to try

I am a sucker for a cheap makeup product that actually works and on my weekly Aldi shop, I discovered what I can only describe as a Liz Earle hot cloth* dupe. Im not gonna lie, I feel like as a blogger, I should be knees deep into a skincare routine by now- but truth is, my skin has survived the last 20 years without using expensive face masks and cleansers and why fix what aint broken?

After being *abit* hesitant as to whether or not I should pop it in the trolley, I decided to give it a go. Im not gonna lie, my normal skincare routine is a quick makeup wipe over my face and then a generous helping of Superdrug’s own vitamin E leave on mask, but during the winter months my skin really does go through it and I thought now is a time more than ever to buck up my ideas and give my skin some much needed attention. *lets also mention the effect makeup wipes have on our planet. Got. To. Go.

The Hot Cloth Cleanser retails at £3.99 and states to “gently cleanse to reveal naturally healthy looking skin”. It contains loads of natural ingredients, can be 100% recycled AND its cruelty free! Go onnnnn Aldi!!

The cleanser comes with a muslin cloth and the instructions are very simple –

  1. Apply cleanser
  2. Soak cloth in very hot water
  3. Lay cloth over face to open pores
  4. Use the cloth to wipe the cleanser off
  5. finally, splash face with cold water to close pores

The cleanser 100% feels like a clay, and its nice because it warms up a little from the warmth of the water/your hands. The product is a lot thicker than the Liz Earle one*, which actually makes it feel a little drying once wiped off the face and you definitely only need a small amount- certainly does the job when it comes to removing makeup and cleansing your face.

I don’t use mascara and even when I wear eyeliner, my lash lady would drop dead on the spot if she knew I’d been using any form of oily substance near my Russians; so I cannot vouch for how the cleanser removes eye makeup, BUT my ItCosmetics CC cream* fuses to my face and refuses to move from the moment I put it on and this cleanser seems to remove it straight away. 10/10.

For £3.99 you can’t go wrong really, the product looks and feels so luxurious and really does leave you with Glowy skin. I can’t recommend enough!
