Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish - A Product Rave

I promised you this post in my recent Boots No 7 Radiance Boosting Hot Cloth Cleanser review so here it is a  product rave on one of my favourite products ever :) Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish has to be one of my most purchased ever products - the amount of bottles I've used must be well into double figures - I love it :) I first bought this about 7 years ago in a little travel kit and I have to admit I used, thought yeah it was OK and then moved on to something else. It wasn't until one of my relatives started using the range and started raving about it, that I decided to give it another go and to be honest I've never looked back.
My skin has never been that bad but I was prone to oily skin, congestion and blackheads I have to say I was sceptical how could such a creamy product clear my skin up - well it did! I don't know whether it was the ingredients or the exfoliating action of the muslin cloth but my skin is is 100% better than it was all those years ago.

Cleanse and Polish generally comes in a 100ml pump action dispenser, although sometimes you can get special 200ml tubes and you can also get little travel sized tubes. It has a creamy balmy texture and contains amongst other things Cocoa Butter, Rosemary Extract, Vegetable Glycerin, and Eucalyptus Extract. The Eucalyptus is the key ingredient for me, it has such a fresh clean smell, and it's especially good when you have a cold :)

To use it I generally massage a couple of pumps over my dry face to dislodge the grime and make up (the cleanse part), then I damped the muslin cloth in warm water (the warmer the better) and move it in circular motions across my face and gently over my eyes (the polish part). Cleansing and exfoliating in just one step simples :) This stuff really gets everything off from waterproof mascara, to long wear foundation. I have to say I prefer to use a separate eye make up remover because I don't like the pull on my eyelids but you really don't need to - this will take it off no problem at all.

My skin is still oil prone and I would probably describe it as combination, but it works just as well on drier or more mature skin. I must say Cleanse and Polish did break me out for the first few weeks I used it but from what I was told this is just because it is giving you skin a more through cleanse than what you have been using - so don't give up and don't panic your skin will sort itself out x

Cleanse and Polish leaves my skin super soft, clean and clear, and because of the glycerin and cocoa butter never dry or tight. I don't generally buy into the hype surrounding products (I don't honest;) but this product in my opinion deserves every bit of praise it gets - I even made a You Tube video singing it's praises and showing you how it works - it was in the early days of my channel so you may have missed it so I'll pop it in here for you x

I either buy my Cleanse and Polish from QVC or directly from Liz Earle, but you can also buy it in John Lewis too. As well as rave for Cleanse and Polish this should also be a rave for Liz Earle in general - if you order from her website you also get samples, and the customer service is second to none you really feel like you matter and that your custom is appreciated. Prices for Cleanse and Polish start at just £5.10 for a 30ml starter tube to £11.75 for a 100ml pump. Any questions please ask x
