The MRL facial microfibre cleansing mitts are non irritating and contain no chemicals. The surface area of a microfibre cloth has a dense pile that is made of many tiny threads, more than a normal wash cloth. The many micro-fibres enables the mitt to lift make-up from the skin surface. Smaller fibres can get into cracks too small for normal facial cloths, and can get under finer particles of make-up and daily grime with less irritation. It can be used alone with water to remove make up as a pre cleanse, before using the Goji Mallow Cleanse , or on its own as an alternative to facial wipes.
