Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish is deemed a cult product by the beauty industry. Is it worthy of such status?
In my eyes, absolutely yes!
As I have mentioned before, my skin is sensitive at the moment. I was using Dermalogica Anti-Bac facial wash in the hopes of clearing the breakout on my chin. Low and behold, instead of clearing my skin up it made the situation much worse. I was left with dry and further irritated skin and even more spots.
I have used Cleanse & Polish in the past but I got distracted with trying other products. I ditched the Dermalogica product and switched back to my beloved Cleanse & Polish eight days ago.
It’s a natural product with plenty of ingredients that are known to benefit the skin. It smells of Rosemary essential oil to me, which is a little Vicks VapoRub- esque. It’s super creamy. I massage one squirts worth into my skin with my fingers and then rinse off the product using a muslin cloth.
Although the product itself in excellent at removing make-up and soothing the skin the real winner is the muslin cloth. It gently exfoliates without causing any irritation. That being said, I have tried the muslin cloth with other cleansers and not had the same results – usually because the cleansers in question were irritating my skin beyond belief.
I use it tandem with the Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser for combination skin. I couldn’t be more delighted with my skin. It’s looking better every day. For me, gentle products and a gentle skin care routine is the key to clear skin.
I’m going to order the 100ml Starter Kit from the Liz Earle website. The set includes a bottle of Cleanse & Polish and muslin cloths, it costs €15 (above). I have never purchased the 100ml pump bottle before, I opted for the tube the last time. I may order the mini size for travelling too. I also have my eye on the light moisturiser. Shipping to Ireland seems pretty reasonable too.
Have you tried Cleanse & Polish? Do you recommend any other Liz Earle products?
