Moonies are basically natural, unbleached muslin cloths which are hand-made by Kia. They are different in shape from your regular muslin cloth – Moonies are circular in shape, about 30x30cm each, they have brown thread edging and little label saying Moonie on each. Your order comes in an eco-friendly packaging with a little wooden character (Neil!) – the packaging is so cute and you can tell that Kia puts a lot of effort not only into making Moonies, but also into the whole business as such & its presentation. Oh, and have I mentioned that the material is sourced in the UK? Yes, yes, for all you patriotic beauties out there!
Kia also includes a few tips how to use them to their full potential, some of which I’ve never thought of before – you can put them in a freezer for treatment of puffy eyes, you can use them to take off your face mask, you can wrap up a couple of ice cubes in your Moonie to sooth skin after shaving/waxing… I’ve already tried a few, but will be definitely trying more & let you know how I get on! Most of the time I use muslin cloths with hot cloth cleanser (or any cleanser really) to take off my make-up every evening. Here comes the question – Moonie x any other muslin cloth? Because Moonies are unbleached and natural, they are slightly more ‘rough’ than your regular muslin cloth and therefore I find them much better for exfoliating my skin. After I use a Moonie, my skin feels so soft, almost as if I used a cleansing brush (who needs Clarisonic when you’ve got a Moonie, right?!). This is definitely a massive advantage over other muslin cloths I’ve tried. In addition, because the material is unbleached, the make-up (& dirt, yuck!), doesn’t seem to ‘stick’ to it as badly as it does to a regular muslin cloth. I washed one Moonie in a washing machine and the stains more or less came off – that just doesn’t happen with the other muslin cloths so I happen to throw them away pretty soon (because who wants to wipe their face with a grey/brown cloth, bleurgh). So to say, I do prefer Moonies to the other muslin cloths I’ve tried – for the material, the feel, the texture as well as the easier maintenance!
You can buy Moonies from Kia’s Moonie shop – each pack contains 3 Moonies & costs reasonable £5.99. Your Moonies come with their guardian Neil (although at first you may think Mr Moonie might be a slightly childish character, I guarantee you that you will fall in love with him, I’ve actually put him on my keys as a key chain, woops!) and if you’re quick you can get FREE 1st class delivery until the end of September!
