Happy Monday lovelies!
Today I have a review of Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser and Instant Boost Skin Tonic from the Liz Earle range. I was interested to trial this beauty duo, surprisingly I’d never heard of these popular cult products before they landed on my desk. The Hot Cloth Cleanser has won multiple beauty awards, so they must be onto a good thing.
What they say:
“Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser – Our plant-based cleanser has a two-phase action. Phase one is the cleansing. Free from mineral oil, it has a rich and creamy texture and swiftly removes all traces of face and eye make up, even stubborn mascara. Phase two is the polishing. Polish off the cream using the pure muslin cloth to gently dislodge dead skin cells and help reveal clean, soft and radiant skin.”
“Instant Boost Skin Tonic – This heavenly scented, non-drying floral tonic revitalises, soothes and brightens. Gentle and alcohol-free, it also adds a fine layer of moisture. With conditioning natural source vitamin E, hydrating aloe vera and rose-scented geranium.”
No alcohol & no animal extracts
Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser £13.25 – 100ml (3.3 fl oz), active ingredients rosemary, chamomile, cocoa butter, eucalyptus essential oil. 30 months shelf life.
Instant Boost Skin Tonic £13.25 – 200ml (6.7 fl oz), active ingredients organic aloe vera calendula, rose-scented geranium, cucumber & natural vitamin E. 12 month shelf life.
I have to say, I can see why the cleanser is so popular. I am absolutely loving the 2 step process and the exfoliating effect it has. Step one might take a little getting used to, but you pump the cleansing cream into your hand and massage into your face without water. You then wet the muslin cloth in warm/hand hot water and use it to wipe and exfoliate the cleanser away. The fragrance of the cleanser is very strong and natural.
The skin tonic was a bit of a bust for me, and I didn’t like it as much as the cleanser. It has a lot to do with the fact the weather here can be so humid, and toners tend to give that effect. In cooler weather, I can definitely see this toner being a great skin boost, so I recommend giving it a try to see whether it works for you. The smell is also very natural and pleasant.
Would I recommend this? Definitely try it if you have the chance. This style of cleansing might not work for everyone, but it is very gentle and hydrating on the skin. The exfoliating with the muslin cloth is my favourite part, its gentle enough not to aggravate the skin, yet effective enough to reveal fresh radiant skin daily. I would choose this type of exfoliation over granulated exfoliators anyday!
