About The Company

Take My Face Off™ is a Los Angeles-based company that creates washing mitts and other skin cleansing products that are totally genius, if we say so ourselves.


About The Founder

Driving home from a concert late one Friday night, musician Amanda McIntosh was daydreaming about her calming, soon-to-be-started bedtime routine.  The lite jazz* playing in her head screeched to a halt when she realized that all of her washcloths were in the laundry.  You see, Amanda likes to clean her face with oils (check it out — it’s awesome), but oils require something to wipe with.  Should she use soap, or just wipe the oil off with a paper towel?  Neither was sounding good.


*That was a joke.  Amanda wouldn’t be caught dead listening to lite jazz.


Amanda had been running out of washcloths a lot lately.  And every time she went to the computer to order more, she couldn’t bring herself to click “buy.”  She found washcloths ugly.  And awkward.  And coarse.  And she hated to spend money on them, even though she clearly needed them.


As she pulled into her driveway, Amanda thought—“Washcloths are seriously overdue for an upgrade.  How hard can it be?”


Of course, it turned out to be a lot harder than she expected.  Many sewing machines, too much wine-sponsored brainstorming, hundreds of test fabrics, and dozens of designs later, Amanda introduced her friends and family to the Mitty™.  While they loved it, some of them asked for more—a big one, a small one, a baby one, a soft one, and a scrubby one.  So instead of doing a victory lap, Amanda went back to the drawing board to produce something for each ungrateful wretch**.


**By “wretch,” we mean generous angels whose insights and encouragement helped shape the first wave of Mitty™products.
We’ve got loads more products in the pipeline, but our inaugural lineup has something for everyone in the family.
