I have owned a good few bottles of Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish in my time all of which I have gifted to family member, friends et al as one of the main ingredients is cocoa butter - the ultimate softening ingredient but for the longest time such ingredient broke my skin out in a horrid rash. The good news is that in the last year or so I seem to have outgrown such allergy, soft skin shall be mine and I finally have a real opinion on Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish.
Liz Earle's Cleanse and Polish is held within high regard in the beauty world, so much so that it is won over 100 beauty awards since it's launch. Not bad going huh? The whole concept behind this cleanser is that it both gently and effectively cleanses and exfoliates the skin in one quick step. How? Well you apply the thick almost moisturiser consistency cleanser to your face and massage in, as it is a little thicker than your typical cleanser it encourages you to really massage the skin, get the blood pumping and encourage the skin to glow. To remove you simply use a damp, warm muslin cloth which will both remove the product and "polish" the skin so to speak, getting rid of any dead skin cells. It is one of the few cleansers that I have used in which I have noticed results from the first use - skin is noticeable softer and there is a certain glow not to mention it makes the whole cleansing process almost luxurious.
So what are the main ingredients I hear you ask? Beeswax as it has skin protecting properties and helps to relieve chapped skin, Eucalyptus Essential for it's decongestant properties, Glycerine for hydration, Hops Extract to tone and for it's astringent properties, cocoa butter as it soothes and softens the skin and lastly Rosemary Oil for it's beneficial antioxidant properties. Now you know huh?
If you have yet to try Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish I fully recommend doing so, I have turned my younger sisters on to using it as it is so gentle making it perfect for all skin types and ages.
