I have a pot of ‘Organic Wild Rose Beauty Balm’ by Neals Yard Remedies, which I use to give myself a little facial with every week. It comes with an (organic) cotton muslin cloth used to steam the face, but I was looking to use something slightly more exfoliating, so as to rid myself of dry skin. I picked up a ball of organic cotton in this gorgeous shade of lavender blue and managed to crochet myself a face flannel/face cloth in just a couple of hours. Being organic cotton, the cloth is incredibly soft and gentle on the face; but the stitch pattern has just enough texture in it to provide a light exfoliation. It was a very quick and easy project, and it’s lovely to be able to use my own handmade items in my daily routine!

It’s incredibly pretty as well as being easy to make. It would make a lovely gift, especially if used to wrap a bar of delicious soap. I can foresee myself making a number of these to give away, as it would be a good project for a dull morning commute: small and portable, with enough variation in the stitch pattern to keep it interesting.
