Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser is by far the best skin care product I have ever tried. No I’m not exaggerating. It has been a firm favourite for 6 years now and I honestly don’t see myself going back to anything else.
So I’m sure you can guess by my opening sentence that this is going to be oh hell of a positive review and I can tell you that you are in fact very correct in thinking so. I’m not sure whether I can put in to words how much I love this cleanser but I will try.
My first venture into this cleanser was with a tiny sample sized tube about many years ago. My skin doesn’t tend to agree with many products, either they make my skin too dry or they make me break out so I never hold out much hope when it comes to trying new skincare products. I ordered a small 30ml travel sized tube of this to try out and oh my Christ! My skin has never loved me so much in my life! I even featured it in my Holy Grail Cleansers of 2013 and My Favourite Blogger Hypes.
I wasn’t keen on the smell at first, it has quite a strong natural plant smell but as I’ve got used to it I have grown to actually love it, it’s really fresh and clean smelling without overpowering perfumes which is perfect for me. I started off by using the 30ml tube which lasted me a little over two weeks using it to take full make up off at night and cleanse in the morning which is pretty good for a little tube! I then bit the bullet and bought the 100ml pump version and the consistency of the pump seems a lot firmer than the tube did which I think I prefer although I’m not entirely sure why they differ at all but the product still works just as well! I have since then gone on to buy many, many tubes and even got my Mum into it too.
All you do with this is squirt some onto your hand, (about one full squirt will do my entire face with full make up) massage it into your face in circular motions leaving your eye make up until last to avoid smearing it all over your face, run the muslin cloth under hand hot water and wipe your face like you would a make up wipe and you’re done! Wash your cloth out and leave to dry.
The consistency is very creamy and soothing so it’s perfect for all skin types including sensitive skin, when I’ve had horrific skin at each end of the spectrum this has helped immensely and I can always rely on it to get me out of a crappy skin rut. I’m also partial to using it as a mask, I just whack it on my skin whilst I’m in the bath and leave it for 5-10 minutes and it helps with any break outs or dullness I might have.
I cannot see myself using anything else ever again it’s that great! My skin looks SO much better since using this, it’s truly amazing. It retails at £13.75 for a 100ml pump which is a bit expensive compared to a lot of other cleansers but it really is worth every penny. My last purchase was the 200ml Tube which is £26 and it’s lasted nearly 2 years. It’s suitable for all skin types and is basically just amazing.
