Liz Earle - Cleanse and Polish

Hey girls, just before Christmas I went into John Lewis on Oxford Street looking for one last present for Mum, I had just been paid so had to keep my eyes to the floor as I walked through the make up/fragrance section at the front of the store……..well I tried to anyway, when all of a sudden my eyes caught the pale green colour of Tiffany & Co, my head jerked up, my eyes took on a slanted look, like a panther on the prowl! Except it wasn’t Tiffers!! It was Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish, right before my eyes, the starter kit everyone had been raving about in blogworld some months before. Suddenly it all made sense, of course Mum would love Cleanse and Polish as that last present. Hell, I would like Cleanse and Polish and what better person to try it out before she arrived…….ME!

Liz Earle website says;-
“We only make one cleanser because this formulation is the ultimate in concentrated yet gentle cleansing power and works on every age and skin type.

Our plant-based cleanser has a 2-phase action, phase 1 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 2 is the polishing. Polish off the cream using the pure muslin cloth to help gently dislodge dead skin cells and help reveal clean, soft and radiant skin.

Use morning and night with pure muslin cloths to reveal fresh, radiant skin.

Naturally active ingredients include eucalyptus and cocoa butter for smoother, clearer skin.

Suitable for all skin types”

How I use my Cleanse and Polish:-
• Fill sink with hand hot water, place lovely soft muslin cloth in the water.
• I use one large pump of the product on the tips of my fingers
• Massage onto dry skin including the eyes, not forgetting the neck too
• Wring out the water and softly wipe the product off your face, gently removing dead skin cells, to reveal clean, soft and radiant skin.
• Moisturise immediately, I use my new Oilatum Face Cream as recommended by Nic from Pixiwoo. (more detailed post to come).

What I love about this is you can open your eyes without worrying about the product stinging! We’ve all been there, holding our eyes shut tight with our hands out like Stevie Wonder trying to find that flannel/cloth/towel etc. Well not anymore! Open your eyes girlfriend! S’ok!!

Below are some reviews from Liz Earle Website I have to share with you.
“PLEASE, IF YOU HAVE SPOT PRONE SKIN OR EVEN MORE SEVERE ACNE THEN PLEASE TRY THIS, IT WILL HELP YOUR SKIN IN WAYS YOU CANNOT IMAGINE! I have very dry skin that a few months ago was covered in dreadful hormonal acne. I am an attractive woman who looks after my appearance and the change to my confidence and personality when the acne appeared was so dreadful that my GP was close to putting me on anti depressants. In a nut shell this has transformed my skin and the acne is virtually gone. I feel I have my life back and the joy is overwhelming, Even with my very dry skin, this, unlike every other product I have tried is just so wonderful on my skin and it has left it glowing and radiant. To actually receive compliments on my skin now is so outrageous considering what it used to look like! Give this 6 weeks, please and your skin will be transformed. I have to add that I have since started using the tonic and brightening mask, both that have enhanced my skin in a way I just never ever thought possible. Thank you Liz Earle from the bottom of my heart! I am me again and loving it!” sianfrost 18 November 2010

“I adore this product; I have been using the Liz Earle products for many years. A little while ago I used an alternative high street brand. Big mistake, my skin became dry, was not clear and bright and a few spots returned. Now returned to Liz Earle and almost instant results with clearer and brighter skin, even my husband noticed. I will not be tempted to try anything else again, I shall stick with this one as it really does make a difference. Just gorgeous products which are on my Christmas list”

Amazing huh, there's over 500 reviews for this stuff on there so if you need more recommendations you can take a look for yourselves HERE.

I have been using this product for just under 2 weeks and I’ve noticed a big difference already. No more dry flaky skin, just smooth silky skin that I want to show off! I would love to try out the Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser after my Oilatum has run out; there are loads of reviews about this moisturiser on the web. Nobody at work has noticed a difference in my skin but then they wouldn’t because I work on a building site (in the office) and most of my colleagues are men!

Not only am I fast becoming a massive Liz Earle fan, Liz Earle head office is based in Ryde on the Isle of Wight, which happens to be where my Mum and family live, where I grew up and where a lot of my friends are. This is fate, it’s meant to be!

You can buy the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Starter Kits HERE, they are £13.25 each and you will receive 100ml bottle of cleanser and 2 pure muslin cloths. They also do a 50ml starter kit for £8.45 if you wanted to try a smaller bottle before taking the plunge and falling in love!

Have any of you tried Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish? Is it your new best friend?


  1. Awesome post! I absolutely love the Liz Earle stuff - I started off with the cleanse and polish kit after seeing it on QVC (best late night viewing ever!) and I was completely hooked. The moisturiser is fantastic and the toner smells amazing :)

    My kid sister had wanted to try it for ages so last Christmas I got her the huge giftset which cost me a small fortune (over £160) but she genuinely loved every single item and wont use any other products now ♥

  2. Arrrg! (Sorry about the pirate noise - it's just that I keep on hearing such great things about this product and I'm in the US and it would cost me more and and and ...)

    Congrats on the results - I'll have to bump this product up on my to-buy list!

  3. i love love love this product and i found mine that my mum had around 8 years ago and it still works wonders .... bonus!


  4. I havent bought this for a while but i really need to as my skin is a bit of a mess!!

    Great post xox

  5. Cleanse and polish DOESS removes all of my stubborn makeup than any other makeup remover ID EVER used :)



Thanks so much for your messages girlies, they make my day! xxx
