When I travel to visit my husband’s family in France, and when I stay in French hotels, both in the U.S. and abroad, I’m always treated with what I consider a very cool, practical French invention – the pocket washcloth. (I’ve only ever seen this in France and French hotels so I’m assuming it was created by the French–after all, they did invent the facial and are known for meticulously caring for their skin.)
Many people wash either their face or their body using a washcloth, but having a square piece of terrycloth can be cumbersome while washing, because it can flop all over the place. The French have simplified the art of cleansing by making their washcloths into a pocket that you insert your hand into, so you can conveniently apply face cleanser or shower gel and efficiently cleanse without all the bulk of a normal washcloth. (In the picture is a wash cloth from my father-in-law’s house in France.)…
In France I do use these on my skin and body, but when at my own home, I prefer to wash my body with my Exfoliating Body Cloth and my face with my Facial Sponges. But nevertheless, it’s a very cool, practical French skin care invention.
