Cleanse Off Mitt

One of the buzz products in the beauty world for 2014 is the Cleanse Off Mitt.  The blue mitt promises to remove all traces of make-up and is part of the Bin the Wipes campaign.  It can be used repeatedly.  Having read great things about the mitt, I decided to give it a try.  I must say, I’m not easily convinced about “miracle” products so I was very interested to see how the Cleanse Off Mitt would perform.

To use the mitt, one saturates it with water.  That’s it!  I tried it on a full face of make-up including waterproof mascara and water proof liquid liner.  I thought these would be a tough test for the mitt.  My face was left spotless.  I was very surprised by the results.  The mitt had passed my first test, but the real challenge was still to come.  I created an eye look with lots of strong pigments, waterproof liquid liner and mascara, glitter and false lashes.  I used duo glue on my lashes which is a very strong adhesive and can sometimes prove a pain to remove.  I did loosen the lashes with an oil based eye make-up remover first.  The mitt removed every trace of make-up on my face.  There wasn’t a single hint of glitter left on my skin.  The mitt was also great for dislodging stubborn traces of the duo glue on my lashes.  I was very happy with the results.  When I woke up the next morning, I was wondering if I might have smudges under my eyes which can happen if some eye make-up hasn’t been removed properly.  My eyes were gleaming.  There wasn’t a hint of make-up on them.

As a make-up artist, I think this product is fantastic.  I create a lot of my looks and experiment at home, usually whilst watching television in the evening time.  I find that repeatedly cleansing my face with make-up remover between each look can be a bit of a pain.  I have very sensitive skin so often the skin can look quite red and irritated from the repeated rubbing.  I experimented with a couple of looks last night and used the mitt to clean off each one.  I found it great, I was able to start my next look on a clean, even canvas.

To clean the mitt, wash with hand soap (a bar) immediately after use.  You can also wash it inside out in a very gentle cycle; once a week is probably enough for a spin in the machine.

The Cleanse Off Mitt costs €5.  I purchased mine from beautyemporium.ie but I understand that it will be available in most pharmacies over the coming weeks.  I would definitely recommend it to all as it is a very quick and easy way to clean your face.
