Flannels, face cloths and properly cleaning your skin

August 23, 2018

At Votary we couldn't love flannels and face cloths more. Every one of our beautiful plant oil cleansers comes with a white, soft, fluffy cotton flannel to help you clean your face properly. They work with the cleanser to give you properly clean skin and a beautiful dewy glow.

Why do they work so well?

Flannels (face cloths if you are American) are a crucial part of the Votary 3 step routine. They're brilliant multi-taskers.

Firstly, when wrung out in hand-hot water and applied to your skin after cleansing oil, they bring steam and warmth to the mix. This helps your skin to release all the clogging grime of the day and maximises your Votary cleanser's natural plant-powered potency. It also gives you time to relax, to enjoy the warmth and the fragrance, and to allow your mind to settle. It's an uplifting moment of self-care.

When you begin to wipe your face, a flannelhelps to take off every scrap of make up and SPF. The soothing mechanical action also means any dead or compacted skin is gently exfoliated away, adding to your skin's healthy glow. It's a natural, gentle way to exfoliate which doesn't cause any redness, soreness or inflammation.

Flannels are also better for the environment because you can use them again and again, unlike daily wipes which are not recyclable and can cause real environmental  problems.  Flannels out-perform muslin cloths too, because they hold their heat and shape for more thorough exfoliation and are gentler on the skin's mantle because they don't become thin and scratchy. They can be washed alongside bed linen or towels, and ours remain soft and fluffy after repeated washing.

And, what's not to love about the note of chic luxury which a pile of freshly laundered white flannels  brings to your bathroom game?

So many Votarists asked us to produce a box of our flannels, so we did. Our five cotton flannelsare made from pure cotton terry, and feel soft and luxurious on your skin. They maximise everything your Votary cleansing oilsdo to give you a healthy, radiant complexion. Read here to see how.

And, if I still haven't convinced you, here I am talking flannels and face cloths in my bathroom!
