Nothing beats a good cleanser. Really. That feeling of having a deeply clean and not dry skin is just wonderful. It seems to strip away the daily stresses. And that’s how the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish hot cloth cleanser make me feel.
This cleanser is a cream that should be applied to dry face and massaged delicately in circular, upwards movements in every inch of you face, neck and decollete. It is white in colour with a thick creamy consistency. It spreads easily on the face and it smells tiny bit eucalyptus-y, which makes it deliciously refreshing on the face.
It contains beeswax, eucalyptus oil, glycerin, hops extract, D-panthenol, cocoa butter, rosemary and chamomile essential oils/extracts. As all Liz Earle products, all ingredients are responsibly sourced, not tested on animals, no animals ingredients and preservatives kept to a minimum.
Upon application you can see makeup melting, including eye makeup. after applying in the whole face, use the muslim cloth soaked in warm water to remove the cleanser, makeup and polish the skin. It removes eye makeup much better than I expected, without rubbing!
The warm cloth feels lovely against the skin – make sure you are delicate, especially around the eyes. I usually re-soak the cloth twice or three times. No need to rinse again, but it is nice to splash the face with cool water afterwards. I usually follow up with the Liz Earle Instant Boost tonic and their Skin Repair moisturiser.
With so many pros, the only extremely minor con is that is does take a little more time than normal washing, but it also cleans much better. Plus, the time you won’t take removing eye makeup afterwards kinda makes up for it!
Skin feels fresh, squeaky clean and nourished, which is great! I just love this cleanser and have incorporated it to my evening routine!
The Cleanse & Polish hot cloth cleanser is available from the Liz Earle website in various sizes (starting from a 15ml sample size for £3.75). I do recommend the 200 ml starter kit which costs £26.25 and comes with a muslin cloths.
