Jane Iredale’ Magic Mitt

The magic mitt, something I never ever thought I would be bothered owning. I am used to roughing it up with a plain old face cloth or cotton pad. I am becoming a woman of luxury being the owner of my very own micro- fiber cleansing cloth. This cloth removes make-up, including mascara and eye-liner without the need for a cleanser. All you have to do is wet the cloth with warm water. The theory is that once water is added, the micro- fibers become capable of penetrating oil films. That means the make-up turns into an emulsion and can be easily removed.

I really love this mitt, it’s truly magic. Purely for the reason that it has made the tedious job of taking make-up off at the end of the day a doddle. I will confess that I am awful at taking my make-up off after a night out and suffer the consequences the next morning. Without fail I always regret it but easily fall back into my bad habits. The Magic Mitt has changed all of this. I never go to bed with an ounce of make-up on now. It’s a miracle!

Although it does say you don’t need cleanser I am a creature of habit and still use one in my routine. I rub the cleanser into my skin with my finger tips and take it off using the wet Magic Mitt. If I have particularly heavy make-up on I complete this twice. Regarding my eye make- up and mascara, a light continuous rub takes it off without fail. At the moment with my delicate eye-lashes I am trying to be as gentle as possible and not be too aggressive. It really removes the need for irritating make-up remover wipes and other products for eye make-up removal.

My skin is feeling really soft at the moment and I really believe this mitt has greatly contributed to this. Having a decent cleansing routine is important and the Magic Mitt makes it easy. Also it seems the micro-fibers do not affect the acid mantle of the skin. The acid mantle is an acidic film secreted by the sebaceous glands and acts as a barrier to harmful bacteria, viruses and fungi. My skin definitely feels healthy and not stretched or tight after using it. It costs €17 but is re-washable and will save on buying products. We all love a little Magic!
