I thought I'd write a little review today on my absolute favourite skin care product: Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish. I'm aware that everyone in the blogging community seems to have reviewed this however it doesn't hurt to have another opinion, especially if you're new to reading blogs! I have not been sent this, I buy it myself and want to share my love for it!
What is it and how does it work?
The Cleanse and Polish is a 'hot cloth cleanser'. To use it, I massage the thick cream into my skin (with or without makeup on- personally I generally use this to remove my makeup) for a few minutes. Next I take the muslin cloth provided in the starter kit and run it under hot water. I squeeze out the excess and buff the cloth onto my skin in circular motions to remove the product and gently exfoliate at the same time. I finish by rinsing my face, patting it dry and admiring the baby soft skin that is left.
What I like about this product:
The consitancy is amazing. It's thick and creamy so literally melts into the skin. Heavenly.
The smell is lovely, it's a light, fairly floral fragrance which makes the cleanser feel luxurious when used.
The use of the muslin cloth means that my skin gets a mild exfoliation everyday which keeps it looking bright and clear. It also helps my skin to feel so soft upon use.
The ingredients. This cleanser contains Chamomile for soothing, Rosemary for it's antioxidant properties, Hops extract for toning and Cocoa Butter for moisture.
I've been using this product since before I'd even heard about blogging and Youtube. In fact, it was my Mum who first introduced me to the Liz Earle cleanser when, aged 14, I needed to remove the thick stage make-up I had on for a dance show. Of course I hardly wore make-up then so didn't start using it regularly until I was 15/16. However four years on from that day and I still remain loyal to this product. Although I have dabbled into the realms of other cleansers, I always come back to this and I rarely break out when I'm using it. In case you're wondering, I have dry/ normal skin, however I know that this works for people with oily skin too so whatever your skin type, don't be afraid to give this a try.
I buy the 200ml because I think it's the best value. I know that I like the product so I'd rather buy the big size every few months. You can buy it directly from Liz Earle- Link!
Have you ever tried this cleanser or do you have another favourite?
