As you may know (if you have read my post here), I got to spend some time with Liz Earle last month when she was visiting Glasgow. I had always known about the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser as it has had cult status in the skincare world for a long time; but I’d never got round to trying it for myself. When I met Liz, I was given a bottle and the accompanying muslin cloths by the Liz Earle team and I’ve become addicted to it now.
This product definitely deserves its cult status as it works incredibly well and is a joy to use. The version I have comes in limited edition packaging for the brand’s 20th Anniversary. It’s the same amazing formula, but with a fancy canister container. The 150ml bottle comes with two pure muslin cloths (£20.75 from uk.lizearle.com) and makes a great gift, or just a treat for yourself.
I love that it is dispensed via a pump as it makes it much easier to use only what you need and not waste any. You apply the white creamy cleanser to a dry face and massage it into your skin. It is great at removing makeup, but it will smear it all over your face until you get in there with a muslin cloth. Soak the cloth in hot water and use this to remove the cleanser and makeup residue from your skin. The cloth is quite coarse so it exfoliates your skin as your rub- this is where the ‘polish’ part of the product comes into play. I have been loving using this both in the morning and also at night to remove makeup.
The Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser is designed to suit all skin types and is good for those suffering from acne too. My dry skin has been loving it, as the cocoa butter, pro-vitamin B5 and beeswax it contains are great emollients. The scent is very pleasant too- it has a botanical smell that’s very clean and fresh, due to the eucalyptus and rosemary ingredients. My skin always feels very refreshed and supple after using it. If you are on the hunt for a new cleanser, I’d definitely recommend giving this a try- I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!
