Jjimjilbang. Yes, that's a word that I'm not going to try and phonetically pronounce. I'll leave that mystery to you. Jjimjilbang is the Korean bathhouse. Lately, I've been reading countless articles on how we should be paying more attention to the Korean way of beauty routines. They seem to have skincare down to a T and we're just about catching on in the bodycare department. Now, in the comfort of your own bath you can scrub yourself down and remove that layer of grime and city pollution from your skin without the need to sit awkwardly in a bathhouse. These scrubbing mitts come in a selection of bold colours (go green!) and kick those pretty little "shower puff/bath lillies" out of the water.
There's a more scrubby exfoliating side and then a gentler towel based side. How hard you scrub is up to you and you can even add your shower gel onto it for a deeper clean. Great for feet as well as legs before a shave. Personally, my skin can be quite sensitive so I would only use this three times a week max but it's a neat, cheap and trending way to keep clean!
My personal favourite has to be my discovery of mitts...to use on your face! The Sarah Chapman Cleansing Mitts are these luxurious thick mitts to use instead of a hot cloth for cleansing. There's a light exfoliating side and then a very soft side that's suitable for around the eye area. They also retain heat and moisture well to allow you to create that professional facial at home.
I just stick these in the wash with my face towels and they dry clean and fluffy again. For just £12.00 you get 4 mitts that I can vouch for being high quality. I can definitely see myself picking up another pack of these and trying to get everyone else to give them a go.
Now that I've sorted out my beauty mitts, time to get myself some Winter warmers...
