"Fight oily with OlAY!"

Once again I wake up to another day and look in the mirror...ahhhh..make up smudged from the night out before,making me look me look like something from michael Jacksons "Thriller".I stumble around the bathroom for a couple of minutes trying to find my mums new oil of olay daily facials she bought the other day, even though I'm not allowed to use them as for 6.99 for 30 thats quite an extravagant purchase for my mum, who usually insists on buying cheap soap that leaves you skin dry and itchy.But as i was still asleep my mind wasn't thinking properly..of I reach for the facial cloth,

I examine the back of the box and look at the pretty lady who is delicately wiping the cloth on her already imacualte skin..don't you just hate those people!

What you do with them.
THe instructions tell you to wet the cloth slightly with warm water allthough in my case cold would suit me fine in a morning to give me a nice morning wake up call.YOu then rub the cloth between your hands till it goes all lathery and bubbly...then away you go.The wipes that i used were for normal to dry skin and the cloth itself has a mottled pattern on it with lots of little holes so as when cleansing it exfoliates aswell leaving your skin feeling smoother.

The feeling of use and after use.
when wiping on your face it feels really nice and soft even though its gently exfoliating at the same time even around delicate eye areas it feels soft as the lather bulids up more and more,its almost as if youcan feel all the grime and dirt completely come away from you face.The make up and dirt comes off almost instantly and leaves the cloth an orangy colour from all the foundation.I wanted to see if it would get all my eye liner off that always seems to annoyingly never come off when using normal soap as its usually a very painfull and stinging experience, putting the soap right in my eye to get it all off.So i try purposely sticking the cloth right in my eye and it doesn't sting.....that is until about 20 seconds and then it begins, but the good thing its not as bad as soap and it does get all the eyeliner off with out that much effort and pain.Once you feel you have cleansed enough you rinse the cloth and then wipe away all the lather,though it is great fun giving yourself santa beards with the lather.
The feeling after use is great i love just stroking my skin afterwards,(though probably not a good idea as i put dirt all back on my face)your skin actually feels hydrated and super cleansed.It doesn't leave it dry or itchy as with normal soap.

Value for money.
The price of it is a bit steep at 6.99 for 30 but the feeling of your skin after use is worth it and being a teenager i've used lots and lots of different kinds of products to help clear my skin,but this seems to suit me best and leaves me feeling more confident about my skin,so over all i think If you want to treat yourself then its a good buy.YOU can buy this at most superstores and places such as boots or superdrug.
Just hope my mum doesn't read this now and find out i've been using hers! ciao
p.s have heard from people that theres an offer on at superdrug at the moment but need to check that out for sure ,thanks to all those people who informed me of that.
