I’ve been a beauty therapist for over 25 years and have owned X-clusive Image for 15 years. I started using Smittens in my facial treatments about 5 years ago and absolutely love the results I get with them! They remove makeup and dirt very easily and gently. 80% of my clients use them at home and they all love them! Their microfibres exfoliate the skin without stripping it and they help to reduce fine bumps on the skins. You have to try Smittens to understand how great they are!

I was fortunately gifted my first Smitten as a birthday present over a year ago now, and I’ve been using them ever since. After receiving my Smitten and introducing my new friend into my skincare routine, I immediately fell in love with the convenience and efficiency of this microfibre cloth mitt. The design is so easy to use because it just fits snug on your hand, no sliding or anything. And with some warm water, it effectively removes my makeup in the evening or freshens my skin in the morning. I love my Smitten and don’t go anywhere without it, because it’s also perfect for travel! Convenience and happiness all round. Couldn’t recommend them more. My family use the Smitt (for men) and Smitty (for babies) and they love their mitts to bit!

Loving it! I never wear makeup, but have now been wearing mascara daily as I know how easy it is to remove.

I love love love my Smitten! Two of the basic things you need when it comes to skincare is a cleanser that doesn’t disturb the skins natural pH and regular exfoliation so that your serums and moisturizers can be absorbed properly; my Smitten does just that so quickly and easily and I’ve noticed such a huge change in my skin texture since using it. Added bonus – I bought a Smitt for my hubby and I can’t believe the difference in his skin, his pores are smaller and no more ingrown hairs from shaving either because the Smitt exfoliates. It’s the one skin care routine that your husband will most likely stick to.

I used my Smitten last night and I am smitten! I didn’t use an astringent, just the mitt, but when I applied moisturizer, I felt that beautiful tingling sensation. I “felt” the deep cleanse!

I like that I do not have to use any products or detergents. Very effective and gentle. Most of all I love that it rinses clean every time.
