Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser

Sunday, 13 May 2012

I'm pretty sure that Liz Earle's Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser needs little introduction.

The beauty world, both bloggers and critics alike, have been raving about it for some time now so when I read on Sandra's blog that Red magazine were giving away a free sample (which included a 30ml tube of cleanser, a guide on how to use it, a muslin cloth, and a list of ingredients) in their May magazine I was determined to finally try it.

What Liz Earle's website says:

"We only make one cleanser because this formulation is the ultimate in concentrated yet gentle cleansing power and works on every age and skin type.

Our plant based cleanser has a two-phase action, phase one is the cleansing.

Free from mineral oil, it has a rich and creamy texture and swiftly removes all traces of face and eye make up, even stubborn mascara.

Phase two is the polishing. Polish off the cream using the pure muslin cloth to gently dislodge dead skin cells and help reveal clean, soft and radiant skin.

Naturally active ingredients include eucalyptus and cocoa butter for smoother, clearer skin."

What I have to say:
Wow. I've tried some pretty decent cleansers in my time, but this is by far the best.

I could see the difference in my skin from the first time I used it, and the area on my chin that was covered in blackheads has cleared right up.

I did wonder whether the muslin cloth was worth it but my face feels so much cleaner and using it is straightforward - you just work the cleanser over your face, wipe it off with the damp cloth and rinse your face with cool water.

The cleanser has a gorgeous creamy texture and although the smell of eucalyptus is quite strong I liked it.

If you haven't tried Cleanse & Polish yet I would totally recommend it  you can buy the sample size, which includes a muslin cloth, for £5.50. For more information on Liz Earle products, go to their website.
