Review: Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser from Liz Earle

The most basic skincare regimen is making sure you wash your face twice daily. If you don’t clean the dirt from your pores, they will clog and give you blackheads and pimples. I’m not saying that you don’t already know THIS, but even I have had such long days with sick kids and a sick hubby and fell asleep without washing my face.. (AND.. it turned ugly) Even skipping one washing.
Washing my face relaxes me before I go to bed, and invigorates me in the morning. I am addicted to this Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser. I LOVE the feeling this cleanser gives me. You can FEEL it working on the deep down dirt that most cleansers leave behind.
001(Muslin Cloths not pictured)
The Muslin Cloths that come with it are AMAZING and feel so different from washing my face with a regular washcloth. It feels like heaven. You pump the cleanser into your hand, rub it in your hands, and smear it on your face and neck. You can immediately rinse this off, or leave it on for a couple of minutes. I’ve done both and was AMAZED when I left it on for a minute or so.
Then you run hot water and put the muslin cloth under the faucet, and wipe the cleanser off. There is nothing like a hot muslin cloth running over your face. I felt like I was having a facial at home. It didn’t take long to clean it, and my face was clean but not dry and stripped of it’s natural oils.
Before using this I had a very dry forehead. WHY- I’ll never know, but it kind of felt like plastic. Probably from using another cleanser that wasn’t working out so well, but I’ll talk about that at another time. This cleanser made the dry forehead disappear within ONE use.
It is thick and creamy and smells like eucalyptus which I LOVE the smell of because it smells so naturally clean. It has a nice cooling effect when applied and started to tingle my face. (Not BAD tingle, I mean like HOW DID YOU EVER LIVE WITHOUT ME? tingle).
When you use the muslin cloth it’s sort of like cleaning a window or brushing your teeth. WHY? Because you start in one section doing a circular motion and work your way down. I had makeup on and NONE of it was left after the first cleansing. My eye makeup wasn’t smeared and my mascara didn’t run. It got ALL of this!
My skin was so unbelievable. I couldn’t stop touching it, It felt like silk or satin. So smooth to the touch I wasn’t sure it was skin.. lol. It’s amazing what a great cleanser will do for you!
I have problem skin here and there. I get breakouts still sometimes. Not bad ones, but I still hate even having ONE zit or feeling like there are blackheads on my nose. Since using this, I haven’t had ANY issues with breaking out, and I am very impressed.
This is a high quality cleanser. Something I would expect a spa to use. I have never in my life used anything that made my skin feel so AWESOME in ONE wash. Usually cleansers take a couple of washes to show an effect on my skin. Where I have combo skin other cleansers were drying out my dry spots and not getting all the oil from the oily spots. NO MORE FOR ME! I am awestruck and in love.
I feel like a celebrity when using this, getting the best treatment!! And you can too.
The muslin cloth is bigger than regular washcloths but they are super thin. The thinness doesn’t take away from how sturdy it is and how clean my face felt. I have never washed my face with muslin, but let me tell you- I was MISSING out!!
The Muslin Cloths are easy to clean. You just handwash them in hot water and air dry them. Or you can machine wash and air dry. They keep their stability and work like a dream!
It is unique to any other cleanser because of the ingredients. It is packed with ingredients like eucalyptus oil, rosemary and chamomile extract, cocoa seed butter, includes a muslin cloth and a set of instructions.  You can go here for full list of ingredients
