I purchased these because I love a good facecloth. It's an important part of my daily ritual of self care. The Liz Earle cloths were thinner then I expected and seemed a little fragile. I have been using them at my gym, taking them into the sauna and steam bath, to cover my face while I steam . For this use, they are perfect! Light and breathable, easy to pack in and out and very sturdy, despite my initial assessment. After several washings, they are still looking quite nice!
