Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser - Review

Since working in London my skin has suffered. The grime has not been my friend. For the first time in my life I have been suffering with breakouts and greasy hair. So when I was kindly contacted by Liz Earle offering me the chance to review their famous clense and polish cleanser I jumped at the chance. I was given this quite a few weeks ago but wanted to nearly finish the bottle so that I can give it a full and honest review.
I must admit that I am not beauty expert but I am all game for trying out new things. I spend far too much money on my local Boots buying any new potions and lotions that I can get my grubby mitts on.

I was gifted the starter set which comes complete with two muslin cloths costing £13.75. I have been using the cleanser at least once a day for the past few months. I try to do it twice a day but sometimes my bed shouts at me too much at the end of the night so I have to give it a miss. It feels lovely and luxurious on my skin. I think this is down to the fact it contains cocoa butter. This is my all time favourite ingredient, my boyfriend always comments on the fact that I smell like milky bars!
The website states that it "quickly removes daily grime and make up to leave skin clean, soft and radiant." The cleanser contains rosemary, chamomile, hops and eucalyptus. It has two stages. First you massage the cleanser into your skin and then you rinse the muslin cloth in warm water to "polish".
My skin has really benefited and I have really noticed the difference. My skin feels so soft and I haven't experience any tightness on my skin, a problem that I have experienced with a few cleansers. I haven't been using it to take my make up off as I prefer to use wipes but as a cleanser I can't fault it. I am a sucker for packaging, it has to really grab me in the shop. I think the Liz Earle range looks sleek and expensive and it looks fab on my dressing table. I love the idea of using a muslin cloth as it feels so much more better on my skin than cotton wool. It doesn't feel as harsh and it is great that it is reusuable. Helping the environment and all that jazz!
I am a complete and utter convert. I am dreading the day that this runs out and will be hot-footing it over to the Liz Earle website to repurchase. While I am at it I might cheekily treat myself to the toner and moisturiser. Hurry up payday!

Once again, like a broken record, so sorry for the quality of pictures. Still no camera!


  1. Love it when someone converts to a worthy product. Great review.

  2. I've had problems with breakouts here and in NYC. I'm oddly happy to know that I'm not the only one. I'll definitely be giving this a go

  3. I love Liz Earle products, their skincare is all I use now (can thoroughly recommend the toner & moisturiser). it is really gentle & kind to your skin. I do sometimes skip the muslin cloth bit and just wash with it...don't tell Liz! x

  4. This cleanser sounds great, I'm sure my skin would benefit from a little pampering and I keep hearing great things about Liz Earle products! x

  5. I'm terrible at cleansing etc in the evening- I just use face wipes,eek. I'd love to start using things like this but I'd need to be more organised!

  6. I totally abuse my skin and really ought to invest in some products to treat myself nicely with

  7. I love this -- i love hearing all of the different ways of maintaining your skin!
