Cleansing Pillows?







I'm not sure about you ladies but I'd never heard of cleansing pillows prior to picking these Aapri Exfoliating Pillows up whilst shopping. I'm pretty sure it was in Home Bargains (which if you're a foreign reader, is a cheap shop in the UK), but don't quote me as I can't find them again! I thought they looked quite interesting and they were only about £3 ish. I have trouble with milia re-occurring around/on my eyes quite often through lack of sleep, and I was hoping this would help without damaging the sensitive skin around my eyes.

Firstly, they are so soft! There is a soft side, which is used to cleanse and remove impurities and then the textured side, used for exfoliating and removing dead skin cells. The textured side isn't too rough that it hurts or damages your skin in any way. I've been using this combined with my favourite scrub at the moment which is Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit. They work extremely well together and afterwards my skin feels really soft and thoroughly cleansed. I make sure I cleanse completely before this to get rid of all traces of makeup. I wish I remembered where I found them, as I'd definitely stock up next time I spot them!

You can buy them on ebay though all on this page or the best deals I've found are:
3 x box of 30 pillows for £9
1 x box of 30 pillows for £4.49
1 x box of 30 pillows plus 2 small scrub and scrub gel for £4.99

They also apparently stock in Savers, Boots and Superdrug, so if you've seen them then let me know so I can go and stock up!

Would love to hear your thoughts on these or if you've tried them. What do you think?
