Derma V10 Make-Off Mitt

About a year ago I reviewed the Jane Iredale Magic Mitt. It's a £16 face cloth mitt that takes off your makeup without any products - just water. I was quite sceptical when I first heard about it and couldn't believe how good it was. I ended up taking it with me to New York and Vegas as it's perfect for travel, getting rid of any worries about leaking products.  Since then I've used it on and off and it's the perfect alternative to a makeup wipe.
When I heard about the DermaV10 Make-Off Mitt I couldn't wait to put it to the test and compare it to the high end equivalent.

So the obvious place to start is the fact that it's £15 cheaper. You don't get much for 1 pound these days so it seems crazy to find a make-up removing, cleansing mitt at such a low price. I'd never really heard of DermaV10 before but with a slogan of "Love Yourself for Less" it's definitely one to look out for.

The actual mitt works in exactly the same way as the Jane Iredale one. It's really soft flannel like fabric (the technical term is Microfibre) and all you've got to do it wet it then rub off your makeup gently.  It's amazing how easily your base makeup and even mascara and eyeliner come off. I found that it only took 2 "rounds" (if that's what you can call it) to leave me with clean, fresh skin. After that your skin is ready for moisturiser and sleep.

The thing I like about this for sensitive skin is you're not using any harsh products. Without using cleansers and soaps your skins pH balance isn't being altered so you're able to achieve clean, soft, smooth skin quite quickly. I don't like to use it every day though, I can't put Boots out of business.

The thing about the Jane Iredale mitt was you had to hand wash it after using it a few times. I didn't notice the same instructions for this one so I took the risk and threw it in the washing with the rest of my towels and it came out as good as new. Mascara does tend to stain a little bit but it doesn't have that much of an impact.

What skincare dupes have you found with such a saving?
