Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish – A Review by Siobhan from A Handful of Sparkle.
Hi guys! How are you all doing? And how is your week going so far? Well this is something very exciting for me, and when the opportunity arose, I obviously jumped at the chance to be a guest blogger here on Claire’s amazing blog.
No doubt, you will have heard a million and one different bloggers talking about this product, and I know I am very late to the game with my review of the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish. But, I do have a very good reason!! I have incredibly sensitive skin, so much so that, 2 weeks ago, my sister suggested using my regular moisturiser to hydrate my skin more, by letting the product sink in on its own, rather than massaging it in. And guess what? My skin couldn’t cope with the product and had a massive reaction. It turned bright red, it felt like my face was literally on fire, and it was stinging! All this from a product I had used before. This was why I didn’t want to risk spending £15.50 for the starter kit (100ml pump & 2 muslin cloths) to have a reaction to the product.
So when I saw on twitter a couple of weeks ago, that for a 24 hour period on the Liz Earle website they were selling the starter kit for £9.50 (the original 1995 price, to celebrate their 20th anniversary) I figured it was about time I gave it a try.
OH MY GOODNESS. I am so glad I bought this. It is amazing. It certainly lived up to all the hype and I will definitely be repurchasing when I’ve finished this bottle! The packaging is very plain and basic, but still looks super high end, while still being middle of the market in terms of pricing.
I have been using this morning and night since I initially bought it, and the difference in my skin is incredible. I have been struggling with dry skin in my t-zone for quite some time, but this cleanser has completely sorted that out. There have been days where I literally have come home from work late, had no energy whatsoever, removed my make up with this and gone straight to bed. The next day? My skin is no worse off for not using moisturiser.
The product itself has a wonderfully thick/clay mask like consistency when you pump it out onto your hand, but then as you massage this into your skin, the consistency changes and it is lovely and creamy. The muslin cloth that you have left soaking in warm water, then gently exfoliates your skin while breaking down any trace of make-up and removing this effortlessly. Your skin feels super moisturised without having an oily residue and because of this, the product is suitable for all skin types. As I mentioned earlier, I have super sensitive skin, and the other thing I was worried about with this, was the scent, as sometimes scented products irritate my skin too. While this product is scented, it is only a very light, natural scent, so doesn’t have any negative impact on my skin.
All in all, the Cleanse & Polish is amazing and I would highly recommend this to anyone, regardless of skin type! Does anyone use any Liz Earle products at the moment that I am missing out on?? Let me know in the comments!
Thanks for reading guys – and thank you Claire for having me!
