REN Rosa Centifolia Hot Cloth Cleanser - Review

REN Centifolia Hot Cloth Cleanser , Review, Hot Cloth Cleansers, Beauty, REN

Yes REN Centifolia Hot Cloth Cleanser featured in my March Faves but several uses since mean that this hot cloth hero is quite rightly entitled to a post all by its lonesome. It's that good. 

Hot cloth treatments are nothing new with Eve Lom, Liz Earle, No7 and more recently Soap & Glory all offering their own take on the ablution but there's something about REN (isn't there always?) that makes it just that little bit special.

I first tried this Centifolia rose petal infused cleanser while on a spa weekend a few weeks back and, truly, 30 minutes spent lolling in a hot back with a hot cloth on my fizzog was the most enjoyable treatment of the entire weekend - and it had stiff competition. 

The cocoa butter used in REN Centifolia Hot Cloth Cleanser are taking full blame for the incredibly soft skin this cleanser has been giving me for days on end. Massaged into dry skin as I prepare to hop into the shower, I heat the 100% cotton cloth (included) and just breathe out the day under the hot water. 

Once I'm done, the flannel (because that's what it is in reality) is just rough enough to remove every trace of makeup, quickly and effectively - though I always use a second cleanser for my eyes. 

I suffer from KP, which affects my jawline (and arm tops and thighs) when I'm stressed but REN has taken it in its hot hands beautifully. My skin is soft and radiant for the entire day after use, even under makeup. 

You might expect an eye watering price tag for a lovely little product like this but as I said back in March, €20 is the damage. TWENTY EURO. For that price I'll be buying a couple as gifts and saying nowt about the price.

You'll pick up REN Centifolia Hot Cloth Cleanser here for €19.85 with free delivery or, if you prefer to buy Irish, from Cloud10 Beauty here for €21.95 (with speed of light delivery)

What say you to hot cloth cleansers? Any faves?

Sounds amazing...I'm using Liz Earle's version at the moment (into my fourth month of a 200ml tube!!!) and I'm loving it....might get this for when Liz runs out....

Sounds gorgeous and really good price too! I don’t mind spending the bit extra on cleansers as they are important! Have yet to try Hot Cloth Cleansers though but do love REN so I must check this out!
