The new-look pink packaging Cleanse Off Mitt works the exact same way as it did before its costume change but do you know how to cleanse with the Cleanse Off Mitt anyway?
So, while our COM has undergone something of a glow-up, it just goes to show that it's what’s inside that counts. Now that she’s looking so utterly fresh to death is the perfect time to remind ourselves just how to use the COM to the best of our ability.
Step 1: Admire The New Cleanse Off Mitt Packaging
Just take a hot min. That’s all you're going to need. Any more and it’s a bit silly - but we’re kind of shook. First of all, we’re loving the Pretty In Pink vibes. Second of all, on Wednesdays, we might wear pink, but our COM is wearing pink 365 nowadays - iconic.
Not only is our new COM packaging reusable, and resealable, and perfect for travel or play, but it’s also here for a good time and not a long time, because by 2020, we are COMmiting to having fully biodegradable COM and packaging. It's an ideal time to learn how to cleanse with the Cleanse Off Mitt.
Step 2: Soak Your COM in Warm Water
You should always rinse your COM before you use it for the first time. Then, when it’s time to get cleansed, you should run your COM a bath. Warm water is best for ideal usage of the COM. Make sure the water is the correct temperature, and make sure your COM is completely saturated. Squeeze it out a little bit before you slip it onto your hand - cooling water running down the sleeves of your pajamas is a horrible feeling at the best of times.
Step 3: Precleanse, Baby!
Just your COM + Water: all you need. Slip the COM over your hand, and starting from the centre of your face, gently run the mitt in small circles over your skin, and watch any makeup which you might be wearing disappear. It might seem like magic, but actually it’s just science. The microfibre COM works by employing the tiny microfibre hooks to scoop product, pollution, dead skin cells or even an excess of oil out of your pores. Either way - with just warm water and your friendly, neighbourhood COM, your face is about to be cleansed.
Step 4: Double Cleanse All Day Long
Your COM hasn’t done its night’s work, however. You can use it to perfect your double cleanse if you have the inclination. You COM’s also perfect for cleansing with whatever product you like to use next. You can use the clean side of it to massage the product in, and help you to make sure you’ve gotten it all off your skin post-cleanse. We are anti-splash-and-dash, because you’re too important and grown to soak your own bathroom.
Step 5: Clean Your COM
Straight after use, you should clean your COM in the sink with soap in order to get the heavy makeup marks out and avoid staining it. Then, you can pop your COM into a 30 degree celsius wash. If you want to, you can wash it with a bar of soap or liquid soap to get another use out of it before it has to go in the washing machine. As long as this soap is antibacterial and suits your skin, you’re good to go. If you have three COMs on the go, it means that you could almost go a week without having to machine your set if you want to. We like to throw them in the machine throughout the week so we’re not stuck, however.
Step 6: COMs Away!
Stick your COM back into its reusable bag (preferably dry, but if this isn’t possible, be sure to leave the bag open to allow it to dry fully before you close it up again!). With the new packaging, your Cleanse Off Mitt can slip into your gym bag, your weekend bag for sleepovers, or your case for any trips which you might have planned - and stay nice and clean!
So there you have it, COMverts, and now you know all about how to cleanse with the Cleanse Off Mitt. Just like a celeb going back to their old home town, COM might look a million dollars, but it’s still the same COM we know and love. It’s staying #humble, even if it’s looking fire.
You can get your hands on the COM, COM 3 pack, 7 pack or even a 20 pack here!
