As you may know, I was fortunate enough to be sent a parcel of goodies to try from Liz Earle and I’ve been using them for a week or so now so i’m starting to roll out the reviews.

I’ve been thinking about using Liz Earle stuff for some time based on the good reviews I hear all over the place but I was too poor and had a lot of other things to use up first so this was most fortuitous.

First up we have the cult product, Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser. I was sent the 100ml pump with two muslin cleansing cloths. I understand this costs £12.75.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser

They say:
The original, multi award-winning, concentrated cleanser. Used with the pure muslin cloth, it quickly removes everyday grime and make-up, including stubborn mascara, to leave all skin types soft and smooth. Radiance boosting and packed with naturally active ingredients, try this best-selling cult classic today.
It is extremely gentle and safe to use around the eyes to remove even stubborn mascara.This cleanser contains cocoa butter to moisturise, eucalyptus oil to purify and chamomile to soothe the skin.Fill a basin with hand-hot water.
Apply 1 or 2 pumps of Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser onto dry skin and use your fingertips to gently massage the cream over your face and neck. Work in circular movements from the centre of your face outwards. Massage over your eyelids and eyelashes last to avoid spreading eye makeup over your face.Rinse the pure muslin cloth in hand-hot water and wring it out so it’s damp, not wet. Use the muslin cloth to wipe off the cream using a clean section for each part of your face. Place a single finger inside the cloth to thoroughly clean more awkward areas such as around the nose. Be gentle around your eye zone when removing eye make-up. Rinse the cloth thoroughly during cleansing. Rinse your skin in cool water and carefully pat dry using a soft towel. Rinse the muslin cloth thoroughly and allow it to air dry naturally. Follow this routine morning and night then use Instant Boost Skin Tonic before massaging in Skin Repair Moisturiser to finish.
Muslin cloth care: To keep your cloths fresh and clean pop into a 40° white wash after every 2 uses, allow to air dry naturally. 

Sounds good and simple. It’s a nice thick cream and one pump is enough for my face. Its strongly scented with eucalyptus oil which isn’t my favourite but it’s not offensive. It clears my make up with no problems at all and is easy to use. My skin feels crystal clear and smooth. I really like it. I’m not sure how long that size tube would last me, I’d be better off  buying a larger one but then it starts to get a little pricey for my budget. I think the next size up is 200ml and £22.75.

I’ll definitely finish this up and would like to think I could afford to replace when I’m done as my skin feels so incredibly clean! The biggest test for me will be my lazyness, I am so lazy with my skincare, often reaching for wipes but I’m determined not to this time!

I highly recommend this stuff, it’s worth the hype. It shifts my make up, leaving my skin feeling clean and smooth. It’s natural, with lots of good ingredients, which I like and it SMELLS natural which I didn’t realise was important to me until I tried Boots Protect and Prevent. Yuck.

More reviews to come over the next week or so, so watch this space!

    Liz Earle also have an outlet on Ebay which is well worth checking out. The products come from the same place but may have slightly substandard packaging.

    Just needed to point out though, that it’s not entirely accurate to say ‘it’s natural’. Cleanse and Polish contains Propylene Glycol which lots of people who like natural stuff aren’t so keen on. However Liz is very knowlegeable about the ingredients she uses and has an excellent defence of the use of this and parabens in her October 2007 Blog. x

    You’re quite right of course. Thanks for pointing that out. Very helpful. And thanks for the ebay tip.
