This Christmas I was super excited to find not one, but two Norwex face clothes in my stocking, and I could hardly wait to try them out.
Now, I have to admit I was pretty skeptical when I first heard of them.
I mean, washing your face with only a cloth? No soap? Nothing? How is that sanitary?
But, seriously, I don't know if I'll ever be able to go back to my old cleansing routine after this.
I LOVE these things! <3
At first, my skin didn't feel all that different, but after using the cloths every morning and every night, for about a week, I noticed a change in my complexion.
My skin was less splotched, smoother, and had a healthy glow to it.
And it feels better than it has ever felt before. Honestly, I can't even tell you how wonderful it feels to use these cloths.
My parents gave me two cloths, one body cloth and one makeup remover cloth.
In the morning, I take the body cloth, wet it with hot water, wring it out slightly (this is recommended because I have dry skin) and wipe my face.
I can get a little aggressive sometimes, when I'm deep in thought and forget what I'm doing, and my skin will get a little red from all the scrubbing, but it isn't too bad.
The cloth exfoliates your skin while washing, so you don't have to scrub too hard, but don't be scared of rubbing. I like to rub in circles on my cheeks and around my jawline, because that's where I tend to have dry, dead skin.
I also like to exfoliate my lips just slightly with the cloth, because they can be dry, too.
Once my face is clean, I rinsed the rag one more time, wring it out, and hang it up to dry for later use.
Then I spritz my face with toner, rub in some moisturizer and primer, and go on to my makeup routine. Easy pie.
In the evenings, before I use the makeup removed cloth, I like to rinse my face with some warm water and wash all my mascara away (I use natural mascara that comes off easily), only because I don't like to get the black all over my cloth.
Those of you who feel like the whole point of the cloth is to skip splashing in water like a dog, you don't have to do this. The cloth removes mascara easily.
After that, I wet my makeup remover cloth, and wipe all the makeup away. Rinse the cloth, then hang it up to dry until tomorrow.
Just to make sure my skin is thoroughly clean, I follow with the same cloth I used that morning.
Again, I spritz my face with some toner, massage in some jojaba oil, and crawl in bed, with glowing, clean skin.
To clean my makeup remover cloth, I boil it in water for ten minutes, once a week.
And I am new to this whole Norwex facial thing, so I may be doing this all wrong, but it has worked for me so far!
I am greatly impressed with these handy little cloths, and definitely recommend them to anyone who wants to give them a try.
