A New Holy Grail Product: Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser

I was sent Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser* as part of Sophia's #MyLittleSkincareProject and if I'm honest I was really nervous to finally have the opportunity to try it out. I've read review after review about this cleanser and I was actually quite worried that the hype would leave me feeling a bit disappointed. I've been using Cleanse and Polish for a long time now, nearly two months, and I've finished one 200ml tube so I finally feel ready to talk about it in full.

The way you use Liz Earle's Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser is described in the above photo (which is of the back of the tube). You apply it to dry skin (it feels like a thick cream), work it into your skin and then remove it using a muslin cloth soaked in hot water. The Cleanse and Polish cleanses your skin whilst the muslin cloth gently exfoliates and removes the cleanser. The result is very clean, very smooth skin. The muslin cloth I used came as part of a set, so it was Liz Earle muslin cloth, and using a muslin cloth with this cleanser really does seem essential. They work perfectly together because they were designed to do so!

I'm happy to say that Cleanse and Polish really didn't let me down, it hasn't disappointed me at all. Its hype is well deserved! I think that it is one of the best cleansers that I've ever used, in fact it might be the best cleanser I've ever used. It was so effective at cleansing my skin but it didn't strip it of any moisture and it didn't aggravate any sensitive or dry areas. It really did do my skin wonders, in ways that I didn't think a cleanser could. I'm very lucky to have been given the opportunity to trial and review this product and I want to emphasise that this is a product that performs (maybe even outperforms) at its price point, you really do get what you pay for with Cleanse and Polish. 

You can get a Starter Kit (100ml bottle of cleanser with a muslin cloth) for £14.75 or the 200ml tube that I've just finished costs £24.75* - there are also lots of other alternatives, all of which can be found on the Liz Earle website

Have you ever tried Cleanse and Polish? What's cleanser(s) do you love? 



  1. I love the sound of this and will at some point try it, every review I have read about it raves about how good it is x

  2. I have a sample from when I ordered the Instant Boost Skin Tonic but haven't got round to trying it yet. I've seen some reviews saying it made some people break out, so I hope this doesn't happen! xx

  3. For a cheaper alternative I love Superdrugs Vitamin E hot cloth cleanser. Never had better skin!

  4. I really like this :) although I have the nSpa version from Asda which I may even like's so similar you wouldn't believe! xx

  5. I absolutely swear by this product. It lasts forever and seems to be the only cleanser that removes all my makeup and leave my skin feeling clean without drying it out or causing breakouts. I couldn't agree more with it being a holy grail product! xx
