Today I’m talking to you about the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser. The short story is that I love this cleanser. If you’d like slightly more detail than that, then stick with me and I’ll tell you why.
The Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser is Liz Earle’s only cleanser. That’s because the formula is designed to suit all skin types and ages. Sounds hard to believe, but after reading many blogger’s reviews with many different skin types, I think they’ve cracked it! Personally I have combination skin, it is mainly normal with an oily T-zone and I have to be careful that I don’t use products that encourage oiliness. The naturally active ingredients in the Hot Cloth Cleanser include cocoa butter, rosemary, chamomile and eucalyptus. The scent is lovely and calming, perfect for a pre-bedtime cleanse.
You apply the cleanser in two phases. Phase one, apply to dry skin and massage with your fingers to increase circulation. I’d never really massaged my skin on a regular basis before. Just a splash of water here, a rub of cream there, the occasional scrub etc, but taking the time to gently massage my skin has become a bit of a favourite of mine. The cleanser is so gentle and soft, yet it removes all of my makeup bar some very stubborn mascaras. It’s so gentle that I can use it on and around my eyelids, even when wearing my contact lenses. Then comes phase two, polishing off the cleanser with a muslin cloth. Rinse the muslin under hot water and wring it before buffing the cleanser away and gently exfoliating your skin. My skin is left feeling clean, soft and moisturised. I hate the feeling of tight, dry skin that some harsh cleansers give you but that is definitely not an issue with the Hot Cloth Cleanser.
As I said at the start of this post, I love this cleanser and am only sorry it’s taken me all these years to finally get my hands on it. I’ve read many, many rave reviews and tweets from other bloggers recommending this cleanser and now I can 100% say that I agree! Try out the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, you won’t regret it!
