Using a muslin cloth to help cleanse the face seems to be a fasionable thing and must have for a lot of skincare brands-but Liz was one of the first if not THE first to have used this product with her Cleanse and Polish. I, like many other reviews have stated, didnt buy these cloths on their own, but they came in a kit. Its good when they come in a kit because you dont have to worry about purhcasing them and the products are ready to go!But its also great that they started selling them on their own as you can nevre have too many. I currently have two-so when one is in the wash, the other one can be used.
I tend to use this taking cleanse and polish off, masks ( not just Liz Earle ones ) and some exfoiliants. It takes all the product off and I only need to apply the slightest of pressure-more of a hand sweep. They add an extra element to cleansing which is a slight exfoiliation action, leaving skin feeling clean, fresh and smooth ready for product to be put on.
After a while, they will look alittle worn, wont be the perfect white they were when they were first used, but they do the job fantastically!
When I bought my first Liz Earle product which was the cleanse and polish, it came with 2 muslin cloths. The cloths work well for removing the cleanser from the skin. I have bought the No 7 hot cloth cleanser which comes with a cloth but this cloth isn't anyway near as nice as the Liz Earle cloth. My cloths from Liz Earle became a little worn and grubby and so I decided to buy some more.
The cloths are an oblong shape and have a light green stitched edging. They are white in colour and a fairly thick muslin material. The muslin is a soft material and it doesn't scratch my skin when I use them to wipe the cleanser from my skin. They are very strong and a very good size and measure approximately 13 inches x 12 inches and almost square shape, so a really good size to wipe away all of the cleanser, also to hold comfortably in the hands.
They are washable cloths and so can be used time and time again. They wash really nice and I usually just pop them into a white wash load and they are nice and clean, also ready to use again.
They are pure muslin and they exfoliate the skin and feel nice against my skin, I have sensitive skin and so these cloths are ideal. They work well alongside a hot cloth cleanser and these work much better than the No 7 one because it is much softer on the skin and so the cloth doesn't make my skin sore or irritated. They help remove all of the dirt on the face and the dead skin cells too.
All you need to do to use these cloths is to run it under hand hot water and wring it out and then just wipe it across the face. It is soft enough to glide across the skin and is extremely good for cleaning the nose area and reaches all of the area of the face. It feels really nice on the skin when it is wet. After using it, just rinse it under hot water and leave it to air dry and it is ready to use again. I wash them on a 40% wash as that is the recommendation for washing these cloths. This temperature cleans them really well. I wash them after I have used them twice because I don't want any bacteria on my skin and to cause any blemishes etc. If after one use the cloth is quite dirty, I wash it before using it again but I don't wear thick make up and so washing them after 2 uses is fine for my usage. Also after they have been washed continually they do become even more softer.
I bought a pack of 2 cloths from the liz Earle website for only £4 plus £3.75 postage. They are available in a larger pack of 3 packs of 2 cloths in each pack for £10. They may appear expensive to some people for a cloth but these ones are of a very good quality and worth every penny spent. They last for ages and I would say a good year or so if washed correctly after using them. I think they are good value for money for the work they actually do and for the softness of them compared to the No 7 brand which comes with the cleanser in my opinion.
I cannot fault these cloths, they are good for removing make up and I have used them with a hot cloth cleanser to just clean my face on a day I haven't worn make up because they exfoliate too and so they have more than one use.
Liz Earle prides herself in selling nice product and accessories. Liz tries and tests all of her product well before selling them and she is proud of them because people buy them continually and that shows how good these cloths actually feel on the skin.
They can also be purchased on the QVC website for a pack of 14 cloths for £24 plus postage. This price is still good but I would rather just buy a couple at a time because it suits my budget a little more and for the length of time these cloths actually last.
I highly do recommend these cloths for anyone who has ever bought the hot cloth cleanser and want to replace the cloths. They are absolutely worth their weight in gold for removing my make up and for cleansing and exfoliating my face.
On Liz's website it gives a list of shops you can purchase them from too and you can see if a shop is in your area. I think there are not many shops and I think they are scattered around the country.
Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.
I received my muslin cloths with Liz Earle cleanse and polish from QVC originally. They are £2.00 each otherwise which isn't bad considering you can use them again and again by putting them in the washing machine. I usually throw them in with my whites.
The muslin cloths are a great way of exfoliating your skin using a circular motion and are better for retaining heat. Which is probably why Liz Earle chose this cloth for the hot cloth cleanser as the idea of this product is to use a hot cloth with the cleanser.
You can purchase the cloths in a set that come with the 'Hot cloth cleanser' or you can just buy them separately. The cloths are white with a light natural green trim on the edges. This really goes well with the other Liz Earle products as some of them are packaged in bottles that match the same colour as the green trim.
I like the fact the cloth is white because you have a good indication of how much dirt or make-up you have removed. At first the cloths are quite hard but once they have been washed a few times they become really soft. I do use this cloth to wash off my make-up every now and again (When I'm not feeling lazy and just use wipes) and it has been incredibly affective. It removes make-up I feel much better than using skincare wipes and also the foundation and mascara doesn't stain the cloth once it has been washed. Which is always a good thing, as most cloths, bedding and so on do remained stained when foundation has been on them.
Exfoliaters can leave your skin feeling quite sore, but this particular way of exfoliating makes my skin feel really nice and soft and has the great affect of cleaning my skin too. It saves doing two jobs.
After using the cloths I wash them in some water and then use again. I tend to use them twice before putting them in the washing machine, however, if I had more I would probably use a new one each day which is probably recommended. Once I give the cloth a rinse I leave it to air dry, so its dry for the next morning or by the evening if I am removing make-up.
Overall, I love the muslin cloths by Liz Earle; they are a great way of cleaning and exfoliating ones face and are pretty cheap too. 5/5
Liz Earle muslin cloths are intended to be used in conjunction with Cleanse and Polish. Muslin cloths help exfoliate skin and remove dead skin cells and impurities while stimulating the circulation.
The cloths an be purchased in packs direct from Liz Earle, or they may be included in some orders of cleanse and polish. At present as pack of 2 muslin cloths retail at £4.
The cloths are 13" x 13" in size and have a green trim to them. They are 100% pure muslin and are soft to the touch.
When using the cloths, they quickly absorb water and are easy to wring about before using on the face. When rubbed over the face the cloths are gentle yet effective in taking off cleanser and exfoliating. The cloths pick up and absorb what is on the face, rather than just wipe it around like some muslin cloths can do.
These cloths are gentle enough to be used around the eye area without scratching or dragging the skin either.
To clean the cloths, Liz Earle recommends washing at 40oc and air drying. I have washed mine several times now and they are still white and in good condition.
Overall. these are the best muslin cloths that I have used and they are more gentle than a cheap flannel. I would recommend investing in a couple
When I received my Elle Subscription gift of Liz Earle goodies, my box contained 4 of these muslin cloths to use alongside my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser (Review is now up!).
I couldn't really see how using a muslin cloth could be any different to me using a regular facial flannel but it makes a huge difference.
The Liz Earle Muslin Cloths are sold in either packs of 2 or 8 and are priced at £3.55 or £8.65 respectivly. These also come with various sets you can buy on the Liz Earle website.
The cloths themselves are of a very good size, white in colour with a pale green trim around the outer edges. They feel super soft and I have had mine for around 4 months and have all been washed many many times and still feel super soft and have not gone bobbly and they also still remain white in colour which I thought after using them to take my makeup off at night they would be now covered in various mascara and foundation stains.
The muslin cloths are great for exfoliating skin on a daily basis as they are not too harsh and you can't cause any damage to your skin as they are so gentle. They also help to stimulate the circulation as you are at the same time as cleansing your face, exfoliating at the same time.
On the Liz Earle website it reccomends that you use them in a circular massage movement to help stimulate the skin, get rid of dead skin cells and lift away makeup.
After the first time of using one of these alongside my cleanser I could not believe how smooth my skin felt and the next morning after using it, I could actually tell a huge difference as I was applying my makeup and since using these I have had lots of comments about how smooth and soft my skin looks, something that I have never had before.
Each time I have used one of these cloths I rinse well in some hot tap water and then I hang to dry over my towel rail in the bathroom, by the next time I go to use them they have dried out and are ready to be used again. Every few days (usually 2) I just pop them in the wash with my whites and it keeps them fresh and clean also.
I would definately re-purchase these as I really feel like they make a big difference towards my skincare routine.
Liz Earle Muslin Cloths are used within the Liz Earle face care range. When you purchase the Cleanse and Polish starter kit (much hyped cleanser- absolutely fabulous- see an earlier review) you receive two muslin cloths alongside it.
Basically they are a square piece of white fabric- approx 20cm by 20cm, which is hemmed around the edge- this is good as it prevents fraying of the material. They are quite soft to the touch.
The muslin cloths are required as part of the Cleanse and Polish process. After applying the cleanser, the muslin cloth is rinsed under warm/hot water and massaged on the face to remove the cleanser. I use sweeping motions for this and find it very relaxing. After this, I rinse my muslin cloth in cooler water and lay over my face- this feels amazing and my skin feels invigorated. I like using the muslin cloths as I feel that I am gently exfoliating my skin and removing dead skin cells without the harshness of some brash exfoliater products that are available on the market.
After using the Cleanse and Polish skin care range for a few weeks, I can definitely see a difference in my skin- it is brighter, clearer and does glow a little. I think that my make up applies more evenly and lasts longer, and I have had far fewer break outs. This could be because using the muslin cloths to remove the cleanser rather than cotton pads ensures all the dirt and debris of the day is removed.
The muslin cloths are also recommended for use to remove some of Liz Earle's face masks.
On a plus note, the muslin cloths are machine washable and as there are two, I can rotate them so when one is in the wash the other is in use. I tend to wash them every couple of uses.
I have used other "hot polish cleansers" on the market which also provide you with muslin cloths. I have found these ones to be, by far, the best quality.
Two can be purchased on the Liz Earle website for £3.55, I also find that John Lewis stocks the Liz Earle brand.
These muslin cloths are used generally for after exfoliating. You basically exfoliate your face, and then when rinsing, use this cloth to wipe your face. The key is to rinse it with hot water, drain it out a little, and then clean your face.
It is advertised as sloughing away dead skin cells. It definitely does this, and after use my face does feel very fresh and clean. I feel that this cloth is useful for people with especially oily skin, and this cloth gets rid of all the dirt/impurities.
Whilst this cloth is for exfoliating purposes, I do not see the harm in using it after cleansing the face. The cloth is white with a pale green strip and is quite thin, yet surprisingly very durable. I tend to use this cloth at any time now as it just makes my skin feel more healthier than a flannel.
Whilst this cloth is very useful, it does take a while to become effective. I have heard people do not see the point in it straight away, however after about a week you will start to see and feel the difference.
The cloth can be bought from shopping channels such as QVC, or on the liz earle website. It generally can be bought with exfoliating or other face products too.
I would definitely recommend it as a good alternative to a flannel.
Like many before me, I received two muslin clothes in a set with Liz Earle's Cleanse And Polish. The idea behind these clothes were the fact that they are just like a handkerchief rather than flannels which means that they are not too harsh or abrading on the skin. They are finely woven to catch and take off dead skin cells, which is the main cause of spots, and so I thought I'd try them out...
I was quite astonished by how well they worked, my skin no longer dries out after using flannels but the gentle brush over my face with a cloth sure does a lot of good! Also the reduction of spots and redness does work but only slightly. I have started using these clothes to wipe a cleanser off the surface of my face rather than rising my skin with water, as this leaves some cleanser residue in my pores which has really helped with spots. I have recently converted to using honey on my face and wiping it off with a damp muslin cloth which works wonders and I highly recommend these to anyone.
The idea of stimulating circulation gives your skin a healthy glow and evens out skin tone. At £3.50 for two, these clothes are worth it, or at least worth the try, they are very cheap. Liz Earle have Muslin clothes particularly for men which is helpful.
Looking at any disadvantages, they get mucky pretty quick, especially if make up if worn! They will need a good wash in the washing machine after about a weeks use and L.E have thought about that and thus provide you with two clothes as a set (while one's in the wash, another can be used.)
The cloths do work especially well with the cleanse and polish but I cannot afford the product regularly personally as I am only a teen. If I could find a job I would probably be using this product with the clothes, it's a really good combination.
The cloth is white muslin and measures about twelve inch square and has a light green edging. You can buy these muslin clothes separately or they do come with the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish. Like the cleanse and polish I came across these cloths around ten years ago and have been using them ever since.
On using the cloth I found it isn't as soft as a flannel, as it has a slight rough texture to it but not too rough. The cloth is used to help take of the cleanser all you need to do is rinse it in warm water and wring out. I then proceed to make circular movements with it which helps take of cleanser and gently exfoliates my skin. It helps take of the cleanser more easily and you get a better glow and a cleaner skin, I have used the cleanser without the cloth but I have found it is best to use it has your skin gets a better cleanse. After using the cloth I notice my skin is a lot smoother and my dry patches are less, also after a week my dry patches have all gone. They are also very easy to clean, just put them in a 40 degree wash and leave to air dry. I tend to wash them once a week unless I have been wearing very heavy makeup, then it usually foes in the next white wash. They do last a while to, probably up to three months depending on how many times you wash them. I even use them on my daughter who is nearly two and they help get all the dirt off from when she gets herself in a big mess. I would highly recommend these from baby all the way to the older generation and they are gentler enough for sensitive skins.
Price and Availability

These muslin clothes provide so much more than your simple flannel used to mop up baby vomit!
To begin with, these clothes are ideal for simple facial care. They are specifically designed to provide exfoliation, removing the dead skin allowing the application of a simple moisturiser to keep your skin fresh.
I feel that using it with the provided cleaner provided excellent results fordaily cleansing.
The muslin can be washed and still worked as effectively. It still retained it's softness without having to use piles of softner in the washing machine.
Not the big question - is it worth the extra price. I feel that as an exfoliator it was very effective and the travel bag was zipable and could easily go on holiday with you.
After a few months however, the first clothes did get a demotion to being used for the baby vomit after all having said that. But unlike the cheaper own brand supermarket muslins they did stand the test of time and were still very effective.
As such, this product I feel would serve any family well with the quality usually found with Liz Earle products.
Liz Earle cloths are marketed for use with Liz Earle cleansing lotion, but they're a really useful beauty product in their own right.
You get six of these in a pack for £6. They're doubled layered, pristinely pressed white muslin cloths with lime green edging. To use, simply wet them and use them as a face cloth.
The brilliance of this product is that the muslin is slightly exfoliating. Without tearing at your skin, these will whisk away any dead cells, leaving your face feeling fresh and your skin glowing. They really have made a difference to my skin, getting rid of impurities and stimulating the circulation on my face to the point that my skin looks better than it has ever done before. Also, because they are quite thin, you can really get into all of the corners that a thicker, towelling face cloth would fail to reach, which is brilliant if you're a make-up wearer who wants to remove every last speck of slap at the end of the day, allowing the skin to breathe overnight.
Each cloth will last one to two days, depending on whether you wear heavy make-up and how dirty your skin gets in the day. Once you've used them, you simply pop them in a white wash to clean and sterilize them (you're not disposing of anything with these cloths, so they're a pretty "green" beauty product). They're very hard-wearing: my sister has had a pack of these for a year and a half now, and they are still looking as good as new.
Soft, pure muslin cloths provide a gentle way to exfoliate skin and enhance daily cleansing / By sloughing away dead skin cells and impurities, they also help stimulate circulation /
