Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser and Skin Repair™ Moisturiser

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser and Skin Repair™ Moisturiser Normal/Combination

I am always up for trying new skin care lines and Liz Earle is one that has me surprised and delighted. Sometimes I find a product that I know will become a forever favorite and I have found one from Liz Earle Naturally Active Skin Care. This line was created in 1995 and it’s cruelty-free and made with ethically sourced botanical ingredients. I tested the Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser ($24) and the Skin Repair™ Moisturiser Normal/Combination ($40), and one of them will forever be in my skin care lineup!

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser

I had my doubts about the Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser ($24) for several reasons going in. First, I am a huge believer in double cleansing. I get amazing results when I start by cleansing with a makeup remover then a creamy cleanser. I tend to use full coverage concealer and foundation and I also use dramatic mascara so this system of cleansing never lets me down. The Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser challenged me to rethink this method. This cleanser comes with two pure cotton cloths so you can always have one on hand whilst one is in the wash. You apply the creamy cleansing cream to dry skin – go ahead, smear it right over those eyeshadow and mascara covered eyes – then wipe it off with the warm, damp cotton cloth. This exfoliates and cleanses the skin, taking off makeup and exfoliating the dead skin cells at the same time. Like I said, I was skeptical…my makeup is pretty bulletproof and it needs a heavy-duty cleanser. But I am impressed! This cleanser cleans everything off, no problem. It leaves my skin feeling amazing…soft, hydrated, and clean clean clean. Even my eyes! No need at all for any makeup remover.

Second, I was a little reluctant to put this around my eyes because it has eucalyptus as an ingredient. It even smells a little like menthol. I thought for sure this is going to burn…but nope. It’s so gentle. I put it all over my face, all over my eyes, and absolutely no problem at all.

Third, I thought it would be too much to exfoliate every single day. Wrong again Lisa! The exfoliation is very gentle but wow does it make a difference.  My skin has never looked so good.  Soft and glowy and so smooth…it makes a huge difference.

I follow the Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser with a toner, a treatment serum, and then the Skin Repair™ Moisturiser Normal/Combination ($40). This is a very nice creamy, non-greasy moisturizer that is hydrating and soothing. It plumps up skin so it helps reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. The major ingredients are very nice, including avocado and borage oil, vitamin E, and echinacea. This is a medium weight moisturizer that is best for normal to combination skin. It would be too heavy for oily skin, and probably not moisturizing enough for very dry skin.

I like both products, but the real winner and the one that I will repurchase over and over is the Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser. With the 600 different cleansers I have on my bathroom counter, this is the one I reach for over and over. It’s a winner!! You can find Liz Earle products online at, on, and in the UK at various stores and boutiques.  – Lisa
