So like a lot of people if I eat a lot of junk food or drink too much alcohol it’s my skin that pays the price.
For me summer has been burger and gin fuelled – meaning in the last few weeks my skin has been paying me the ultimate pay back in the form of some pretty impressive breakouts.
So I decided it was time to upgrade my skincare routine and after a whole lot of researching I settled on Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser– otherwise refered to as the “Holy Grail” by every beauty fanatic in the blogosphere.
After reading so many great reviews about the the cleanser I purchased the starter kit which includes 100ml of cleanser and two pure cotton cloths which come packaged in a handy travel bag. It cost £16, which may seem a little steep for a cleanser but I’ve been reassured that it is totally worth it.
This is Liz Earle’s only cleanser as they claim their formula, which is made up of naturally active ingredients including cocoa butter, rosemary and eucalyptus, suits all skin types. As someone with a combination of oily and dry skin this made me extremely wary as I avoid adding any additional oil to my routine.
The product is used in two phases. In the first phase you simply apply one or two pumps of the cleanser onto eyes neck and face to remove daily makeup, even mascara. For the second phases you rinse one of the cotton cloths under hot water and then use this all over your face.
After just one use I can already say I’m so impressed. As an avid make up wipe and miscellar water user I was dubious about how well a cleanser would remove mascara but it came off in a few wipes, leaving no panda eyes. It also left my skin feeling super smooth and moisturised, not dry and tight like many face masks.
I’m already excited to use the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser tomorrow night!
Two Week Verdict
I like to give all new things a two week trial before giving my final verdict, so I will update this post shortly.
