I have used this product on and off for a while and like the results. As I have combination skin some wash off cleansers can be a little harsh on my dry areas and some creams are just too heavy.
There are several similar products now on the market but Liz Earle is still my favourite. Liz Earle stresses that their products are all natural. If you tried this some time ago you should be warned that the ingredients have been changed and now the product contains quite a lot of cocoa butter. Despite using this cheaper ingredient the price hasn't changed.
The product is suitable for morning and night use and consists of a cleanser and a muslin cloth. Please warn your other half that this cloth is for you and he should not use it for cleaning the sink!
The blurb on the product explains it should be used in two phases.
Phase 1 massage gently onto dry skin over your eyes, face and neck to purify, soften and stimulate the circulation.
Personally I like to use small circles to massage over my cheeks and t-zone. I find the smell of the cleanser acts as a nice wake up to my skin and mind as it contains eucalyptus.
Phase 2 rinse the muslin cloth in hand-hot water and wring out before polishing off the cream. Finish by splashing your face with cold water.
I find my skin nice and soft afterwards but not greasy. I have not experience any adverse reactions and it does remove make -up although I prefer to use eye make remover to get rid of my mascara.
There are several sizes and dispensers available. I like the pump version to the tube version. The former comes with two cloths and in 100ml and 200ml sizes. They cost approximately £13 and £23 respectively. It can be purchased from the Liz Earle shop, certain departments stores and also online and QVC.
Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish hot cloth cleanser, I've been usuing this cleanser on and off for several years now, I try others but always find I come back to this one.
I have dry, sensitive excema prone skin, so I have to be careful with the products I use, this has a lovely rich creamy consistency, you gently massage it into the skin, it is gentle enough to use around the eye, it removes all trace of my waterproof mascara without the need to rub or scrub, it feels as if my make up is melting away, I then use a muslin cloth and warm water to rinse it away, the muslin cloth isn't at all scratchy, but it gently exfoliates the skin as you cleanse. I happily use this on my daugthers skin to remove face paints, which it does really well.
If you purchase this cleanser as part of a skin care kit you usually get a couple of the muslin cloths included, if not I have used a face flannel in the past.
This product is full of naturally active ingredients including rosemary, chamomile cocoa butter and eucalyptus essential oil, which gives it a lovely clean and fresh fragrance.
It is suitable for all skin types and comes in a 30ml travel size tube, 100ml pump and 200ml tube, prices range from £5 to around £20. I find it far cheaper to purchase this cleasner as part of a skin care kit, avaliable from Liz Earles online store, QVC or John lewis, I have also purchased this from ebay and had some very good bargains.
I discovered Liz Earle many years ago on QVC and was impressed with what the product promised and it seemed like value for money. I was also prepared dismiss it as another of my "impulse buys"( - there are many!) if it didn't live up to expectations. Oh but it did, big time! This cleanser is perfect for me. It is extremely gentle but at the same time deep cleansing. It's made of natural ingredients such as almond and eucalyptus oils and also proven skin softeners like vitamin E. All it takes is one pump of the cream from the applicator onto the back of your hand smoothed and massaged over your face. The cream is light in texture and smells gorgeous and is so gentle you can remove eye makeup too. Just remove it with the damp hot muslin cloth and finish with a splash of cold water. After the first time I ever used it, my face felt like it was glowing and I received loads of comments, asking what was different and was I wearing new makeup! That was over ten years ago and even as a lady "of a certain age" I still receive compliments about my skin, I truly believe I can thank my Liz Earle for that - it can't all be down to good genes!
I first had of Liz Earle through my Mum who had been using it for a few years and was raving about the products. Anyway, as a Christmas gift, she bought me the the skincare set and I have never looked back since.
The Liz Earle range of products all come from natural ingredients. The cleanser contains almond milk, cocoa butter rosemary, chamomile and eucalyptus essential oil. It also has an incredibly pleasant smell which I really like in the mornings. All of the packaging is really well made too and looks great in your bathroom.
To use the product, you pump a small amount from the bottle (a small amount goes very far) and you then massage it into your face and neck. Using the muslin cloth that is provided in the starter pack, you then rinse this in lukewarm water to remove the cream whilst exfoliating your face at the same time. You then splash your face with cold water. Thats it...very simple and easy to use. Your skin care routine is then finished by using the Liz Earle skin tonic and skin repair moisturiser.
A beautican once told me that you can't use cheaper products on the market to look after your face and I know this is probably a gimmick by then to make you purchse their products, I would agree when it comes to the Liz Earle products. I will never go back to using another skin care range and highly recommend it to others.
The only small disadvantage to the products is that they can only be purchased by mail order or via QVC, however, in recent months, a number of John Lewis stores have now started to stock the products.
I first heard about Liz Earle because it is a brand that originates on the Isle of Wight, which is where I am from. I started using this cleaser two years ago and now would never swap back to anything else.
The cleanser comes in a pump dispenser which means you only get out what you need, which minimises waste. The cleanser is creamy and you simply massage it into your face then remove it with a damp muslin cloth. The cloth gently expoliates the skin as the cleanser removes dirt make up and bacteria. I have sensitive skin but this cleanser leaves it beautifully soft and clean and has never irritated it. It smells gorgeous too.
This cleanser is mid-priced, but a bottle lasts a long time. Before I tried Liz Earle I used various brands, but found none to be as gentle and effective as this one. I'd definitely recommend trying this- sample sizes are available so you can check whether this suits your skin type.
THis is a fantastic cleanser, which I have returned to after many years in the wilderness. Nothing has ever made my skin feel as soft and sparkly clean. It smells really lovely too!
It follows the same idea as Eve Lom cleanser (massage on and then remove with a muslin cloth) but is much less gunky and a fraction of the price.
I have very sensitive skin which can be prone to breakouts but at other times be very dry. However, I find that this cleanser keeps all of the above in check, being gentle, yet also keeping spots at bay and skin soft and velvety. I find I do not need to use so much moisturiser either.
Though this cleanser is not available in the shops (Liz Earle has a shop near Bond Street), it can be bought from her site online and a small sample version can be bought very cheaply if you want to try it out without buying the full size.
Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser is undoubtedly the best cleanser I have ever used - and believe me I've tried a few!
I am a self confessed beauty junkie and am often trying new things including very expensive top brand skin products, lured in by the promised of the wonderful things they can do for your skin. Well no longer is that the case!
A good friend bought me this one birthday several years ago and I have never used anything else since. It comes very highly recommended by the editors and testers of The Beauty Bible book which is also worth a look at. One tester apparently gave it 11/10!
OK down to the product itself. It comes in a 100 ml (or 200 ml) pale blue pump tube. The packaging is nice and simple and looks good in the bathroom if you like to know about that sort of thing. You need some sort of cloth to wipe it off. I use the muslin cloths that you can buy with the product - more about that later.
The cleanser is a slightly thick white cream type cleanser, which is good as I tend to lose half of the runny ones down the plughole! As it says on the packaging, this contains naturally active ingredients of almond milk, rosemary, chamomile and eucalyptus essential oil. It also has cocoa butter and soothing hops. Whatever is in it, it has the most gorgeous herbal, aromatherapy smell to it. It also contains no animal products and is not tested on animals.
You simply need to squeeze a little out, I use 1 pump which is about a heaped teaspoon and massage it into your face and neck. The aim is the cleanse with it not try and get it to soak in. You then get your cloth, you can get muslin cloths with the cleanser, either as a set or separately, and you rinse the cloth in water as hot as you can stand - obviously that is a personal matter but don't have the water so hot that you scald yourself! You then use the muslin cloth to remove the cleanser and this has the effect of exfoliating at the same time.
You are then left with soft clean and glowing skin. It takes away all the day's dirt and grime and even heavy duty eye make up without the need to scrub. I usually follow with their toner and a light moisturiser but depending on your skin you may not even need that!
This cleanser is totally suitable for all skin types from young blemish prone skin to dry mature skin as the natural ingredients both cleanse and moisturise. I have quite sensitive combination skin and my skin has never been irritated by this at all.
Ok - so where do you buy this miracle product. Well that is the slight downside. You can only get mail order or in certain limited shops (I think Isle of Wight and London) but the good news is that the mail order service is great. The staff are really helpful, everything comes beautifully wrapped which makes you feel like you are getting a present and they usually include free samples of other products.
This product is around the £10 mark but it lasts for ages so is really good value for money.

About 12 years ago my mum ordered some Liz Earle products from QVC. She has very sensitive skin and had previously never found a product that her skin did not react to. After using the cleanser, her skin was fresh and only slightly red from the hot muslin cloth, which is used to wipe of the cleanser. This soon went after using the Tonic, which is recommended to accompany the cleanser. I at this time was still at school and although I did not suffer with acne, I did have teenage skin, which was sometimes very oily. My mum recommended that I try this and after a couple of weeks I had perfectly clear skin. Since that time I have only really used Liz Earle skincare products as they make my skin feel fresh and alive, even first thing in the morning. They are very affordable products with amazing results. They are all made from natural ingredients and not tested on animals. I would highly recommend any Liz Earle products and have on many occasions, so much so that many of my friends and relatives are also addicted.
I am Danish but my sister lives in the UK and bought this product on qvc about a year ago. She was so impressed with it that she also bought it for me to try out, because we have very similar skin. I am 30 years old and still have problem skin with lots of acne - teenage style...
This entire series of skin care products is the only one that has ever helped me - and I have tried a lot! My skin is now as good as when I was on medication in my younger days - and still improving. Glad I don't have to go down that road again!
It has completely changed my appearance, and I can now hopefully look forward to having beautiful skin on my wedding day next summer - HOORAY for Liz Earle!!! :o)
So....all young women get into a solid skincare routine, do they ?
Yeh, right !I havent had a skincare routine since I was a baby and my mum washed me !
Ok - so I have pretty crappy skin as a result - prone to breakouts, oily t-zone - all my own fault.
But, praise the Lord for Liz Earle skincare products.
Made with naturla ingredients - this range is superbly priced, put together and offers an improvement in skin condition.
The cleanser comes in 100 ml pump - allowing easy use and preventing you from overdoing it.
Apply to dry skin (not wet) and massage all over face and neck.
Wash off with the special muslin loth often comes with the pump.
Mild and creamy - with a great scent (eucalyptus, I believe) -this cleanser is a supreme addition to your dialy routine.............well, for those who have one.
Now, to the undoubted horror of beauty editors everywhere, I must admit I have never really settled down to a skincare routine of the type we are urged to adopt. Its not that I havent tried. I must have spent a fortune on products over the years, ranging from the cheap and cheerful to the hideously expensive, but so far I have failed to find anything about which I thought, This is great Im going to stick with this one.. But having discovered Liz Earles Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, I think my search at least as far as cleansers are concerned may finally be over.
I was encouraged to try the product, which I hadnt previously come across, after reading the glowing reports of product testers in Sarah Stacey and Josephine Fairleys 21st Century Beauty Bible (indispensable reading for anyone confused by the bewildering array of beauty products on the market, by the way). One of the great things about this book is its focus on independent and honest (and certainly not always positive) experiences of various products by a wide range of women with various skin types, and I think Cleanse & Polish came out with the highest overall rating of any product in the entire book 9.5 out of 10, with no testers reporting any negatives about it whatsoever. (Very unusual, as even the most highly-regarded products rarely agree with everyone!)
Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare offers a range of beauty products which, as the name implies, are produced using natural ingredients. Obviously this applies to many other products, but the difference seems to be that Lizs products include these ingredients plants, herbs, essential oils, vitamins at levels which actually work, rather than just sounding attractive and looking pretty on the packaging.
The stated philosophy of Liz Earles company is quality and service always, and they state that this means sourcing the best quality naturally active ingredients which are, where possible, harvested from wild, sustainable sources or grown organically. The results are extremely gentle formulations suitable for all types, ages and colour skin.
Heres what the company itself says about Cleanse & Polish: This award-winning, concentrated cleanser quickly removes everyday grime and make-up, including stubborn mascara, to leave all skin types feeling healthy, clear and soft. And heres what Beauty Bible has to say: Thank you to Liz and her team for creating a wonderful and affordable product that always delivers the goods for my skin, day in, day out."
So, what actually is this wonder product? The first thing you should probably know is that Cleanse & Polish comes with its own muslin cloth, which is used for the polishing stage of the process. The actual stuff itself is available in either a tube or a pump type container in Liz Earles distinctive pale green Naturally Active Skincare packaging. On examination, the cleanser proves to be a medium-thick white cream which is applied to the skin using fingertips. Next, the famous muslin cloth, soaked in hand-hot water, is used to gently remove the cleanser; the final stage of the process involves rinsing the face with cold water.
The cleanser contains cocoa butter to moisturise, eucalyptus oil to purify and chamomile to soothe the skin. It is extremely gentle and safe to use around the eyes to remove even hard-to-shift mascara. Liz Earle advises that Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser is best used with the muslin cloth, to leave skin exceptionally clean and smooth. I would have to agree after first using the product, I was entranced with how clear and velvety smooth my skin seemed. I have now been using it regularly for about 5 weeks, and to my amazement the effect has continued. The cleanser really does leave your skin feeling very clean, and works wonders at removing make-up or rather transferring it onto the muslin cloth, where it is easily rinsed away.
Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish is not the cheapest cleanser on the market, but neither is it prohibitively expensive. The product is available in various formats, but I chose to purchase the Starter Pack 100ml pump plus 2 muslin cloths, at a cost of £10.75, which is still going strong. The only disadvantage, possibly, is that the packaging makes it difficult to assess how much of the product is left, so I may get a nasty shock one morning when I find the container empty! I really must re-order
Which brings me to the other disadvantage, if you can call it that, of Liz Earles products generally, they are only available via mail order. You will not find them on the shelves of Boots. I say generally as according to the website, they are available over the counter in a very few places Liz Earles own shop, Union, on the Isle of Wight, and a few outlets in London including Browns. The products are also available over the QVC Shopping Channel. However, I purchase mine via the website, www.lizearle.com , which is well-designed and easy to use. The company can be contacted by phone on 01983 813913.
I put disadvantage in inverted commas above as I dont think it really is one, unless youre in a desperate hurry. The mail order service provided by Liz Earle is excellent, with products arriving beautifully packaged and in good time. Customers can choose first or second-class postage, at a rate of £2.50 for orders under £20.00 and £3.00 for orders over £20.00 for second class, and £3.50/£4.50 for first class. Customers are kept up-to-date with products and news via regular newsletters and catalogues. My order was also accompanied by some trial-size samples of other products, which was nice.
Im delighted to have discovered this lovely product, and plan to stick with it for the foreseeable future I may diversify into other Liz Earle skincare products as well! (I can also recommend some of her bodycare products which I have tried and which are also excellent.)
It has taken me many years and lots of money to find a solution for my problem skin, then one day I discovered a range of skin products by Liz Earle. All of her products do not contain animal extracts and they are also not tested on animals. I used to suffer from very oily skin and I also used to have very large spots that were very sore. That was until I started to use Cleanse & Polish, this product is wonderful. It has a texture like clotted cream and smells lovely. It has naturally active ingredients of Almond Milk, Rosemary, Chamomile and Eucalyptus Essential oil.
I buy mine from QVC, I buy a twin pack which you get two 100ml tubes with a pump action and also two muslim clothes. I need to buy two as my daughter who is 14 uses it all the time. When my daughter went into her teenage years she also suffered very oily skin and used to suffer with black heads, but now she has her problem under control.
You should use this product twice a day morning and night to get the best results. Cleanse and polish is a two stage process the first one is to apply to the face and neck by gently massaging into the skin and because it is so gentle you can also use it on your eyes to remove your make-up, it also removes water-proof mascara. Then the next stage is to rinse the muslin cloth in hand hot water and start to polish off the cream. When all the cream has been removed you need to finish off with a rinse in cold water. The almond milk and cocoa butter soften, smooth and moisturise while the chamomile calms sensitive skin.
This product is not just for women, men can use it as well and it is for all skin types.
After using virtually EVERY skin care product out there and finding they either made no improvement to my blemish prone / uneven skin or made it worse !
Then a friend suggested I try Liz Earle - I ordered a mini trial pack and after only 2 days of using them i ordered the full size products.
The Cleanser is amazing - your skin feels really clean without that tight feeling some cleansers give you and without any oiliness that others have.
My skin is smoother / clearer and looks clean :)
Her products aren't the cheapest around but they are not the most expensive either - and all products come wrapped in tissue paper so you feel really special when they arrive.
Combined with her Skin tonic and Repsir lotion my skin is the happiest it's ever been
I have spent enormous amounts of money on products from all over the world. Always had problems even when using the other problems, My skin never felt as clean as I thought it should be until I used this product. I am 67 years old have been using it for 3 years now, my Daughter who is 36 has been using it for 2and a half years. It makes me feel proud to think we have someone in this country who can make such an amazing cleanser.
Ordered a special offer kit of Liz Earle products after watching them demonstrated on QVC - money back guarantee is great. Over the years I must have chucked out loads of unfinished products ranging from cheap hight street chemist own-brands to expensive department store named brands. All promising to work wonders on my sensitive spot prone skin - and either having little to no effect or actually aggravating my skin. Well no longer - this cleanser is a joy to use - I actually look forward to cleansing my skin with this product as it feels and smells so good - and most importantly makes my skin look better than it has in years. I wouldn't dream of using anything else now.
At £18 for 200ml + 2 muslin cloths, this should last around 3/4 months - this works out about £1.50/week - and worth every penny. I would rate this as a mid-price cleanser - there are actually much more expensive ones to be found at the big name beauty counters in department stores.
Massage on to cleanse then wipe away with muslin cloth dampened in warm water to polish. This has a very gentle exfoliating action. Those with sensitive skin will know that most grainy exfoliators are just too harsh - no matter how gentle they claim to be on the packaging. A final rinse in cold water suffices to tone skin but following with the Instant Boost Tonic is an added luxury as it smells so nice! This is however an added cost and the cleanser alone is really enough to get your skin looking and feeling really clean.
If you have struggled with problem skin for years - try this - it really works.
