I am rarely amazed by the performance of even high-end cleansers and skin care, but the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish experience really is one to get extremely excited about.
It’s not very often that a product continues to deliver amazing results for everyone with every use, but the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish hot cloth cleanser is a real exception to this rule. The creamy consistency of this cleanser and the original hot cloth methodology combine to leave skin feeling clean, refreshed and smooth.
The luxuriously textured and scented cleanser is so “Spa”. It is not drying for those with dry skins, nor is it greasy for those with oily complexions. The cruelty-free naturally active ingredients (which include eucalyptus and cocoa butter) in the formula help to balance natural oils and dryness without irritation from harsh chemicals and mineral oil. I’d liken the formulation to that of a moisturiser, rather than a traditional soapy or cream cleanser. It melts into the skin; soothing whilst gently loosening makeup in preparation for the next step in the two-phase process.
The hot cloth methodology is simple – when moistened under hand-hot water and applied gently to the skin in circular motions, the natural muslin cloth gently polishes and micro-exfoliates the skin on the face and neck, buffing away all types of makeup, dead skin cells and the build up of excess natural oils.
Simply end the regimen with a splash of cold water, a swipe of Instant Boost Skin Tonic and a slick of your choice of Skin Repair Moisturiser (Light – Combination/Oily, Normal/combination or Dry/sensitive). But be warned – side effects include silky smooth skin and an inability to keep your new-found miracle to yourself.
Get it here. And if you’re feeling really generous to yourself or someone else, go for the Liz Earle 8 Piece Radiant Skin & Hair Collection. This includes the Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, Instant Boost Skin Tonic, Skin Repair Moisturiser (a choice of normal/combination, dry/sensitive or combination/oily to suit your skin type) and two muslin cloths, in addition to some other products from the wonder-range including the Brightening Treatment Mask, Gentle Face Exfoliator, Botanical Shine Shampoo, Botanical Shine Conditioner and Orange Flower Body Wash, all for a very purse friendly £46.50.
