So rarely does a product come along that you know is immediately going to become a staple and leaves you wondering how you didn’t know about it sooner! Lucris Washi Cloths* are a range of essential cleansing basics which include the key product – the Washi Cloths – as well as two further products; the Skin Polishing Towel and the Spiral Cotton Buds. This review will focus on the Washi Cloths.
The Washi Cloths are small, cotton cloths that are used to remove cleanser and very gently buff skin; both incredibly basic functions that I’m sure most people do regularly. One of the many differences these cloths offer is that they are brilliantly produced; so they hold water and heat well, are soft and very kind to skin and are so easy to use.
The buffing element is perfect for my skin type as I’ve really tried to avoid anything too exfoliating ever since I started my new skin regime, yet I still love that ‘buffed skin’ feel that you can only really get from manual exfoliation. Washi Cloths are far more gentle than a flannel or even a muslin cloth (the latter of which I always find a little too tough on spots; especially if they’re infected) so the result is that skin is left feeling well polished without feeling overly exfoliated. The balance is absolutely perfect.
Another great thing about these cloths is that they’re so incredibly cheap, so you can buy a pack of 10 for £7.95 and I’d say each cloth can be used 4-7 times before it needs a wash…it’s worth pointing out that up until writing this review I thought they were disposable, but having read through the site they’re actually washable. I’ve been using mine and chucking them away so I’m now really pleased (and slightly miffed that I’ve thrown a few away) that they can be reused!
They come in a multitude of designs (although this relates to the packaging and not the product; all the cloths are pure white) and can be purchased in various amounts, for example you can pick a selection of individual designs or packs in different quantities and they arrive in lovely pink packaging that’s oh-so-pretty and would make a gorgeous gift.
These are total bargain wash clothes that I recommend if you do any kind of water-based cleansing (they’re great around the eye area too) and if you use any AHA or BHA products then these are ideal due to how gentle they are.
