Fresh Finds: Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish


What it is: Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish

What they say: 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.

How to use: Cleanse daily, morning and night using this two-step process: 

Step 1 -- Massage one or two pumps onto dry skin over face and neck twice a day.

Step 2 -- Rinse the pure muslin cloth in hand-hot water and wring out before gently wiping off the cream. Rinse and repeat.

What I think: I first learned about the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish system, which includes the cleanser (pictured above) and a muslin cloth (not pictured) through my monthly Birchbox subscription. 

During that month, there seemed to be a lot of hype around the products; however, I can't say I felt the same way. Not to say this was a bad cleanser, because it wasn't by any means, but it also didn't leave a noticeable difference.

I've almost always used face washes that were liquid or foaming and required you to wet your face first. This one you start with dry skin and message on the cleanser which feels more like rubbing lotion on your face. This was odd for me. I actually had to remind myself a few times not to wet my face first.

You use the muslin cloth to wipe off the cream, which is supposed to gently exfoliate your skin as well. It does exfoliate to a certain extent, but not the same as face scrubs making this a good every day, gentle cleanser.

One thing I will say is that any time I switch up my face washes, I almost always break out immediately for the first few weeks before my skin adjusts. That was not the case with this Liz Earle one. It's gentle and natural formula didn't have any harsh effects on my skin.

Buy it online: Birchbox $24.50

    1. Thanks, I try to give my experiences, both good and bad, while still recognizing that what works or doesn't work for me might have the opposite affect on someone else. -- SC
