Products Worth the Hype

Products that I feel are really worth the hype they get in the beauty community

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser

What is it?

This is a cream cleanser made from natural ingredients that promises to gently remove every day grime and make up from the face, including eye make up.

The Product

I ordered this product along with several others on the recommendation of a make up artist I was working with regularly. I had been using a cleansing milk and toner from Lancome and although that genuinely worked for me I needed something that was less expensive and just as effective.

As soon as my package arrived I was already impressed with the information booklet and Product Guide included, as well as this I also received a free 50ml sample of their Instant Boost Skin Tonic (a gentle floral toner) and everything was beautifully packaged in tissue paper.

The starter kit came with 100ml of the cream cleanser and 2 muslin cloths all in a pale blue zip up bag (very handy for storage and travel).

I have to say I expected big things from this cleanser and was not disappointed. I wear a full face of make up (although, a natural look) for work, unless i’m shooting and this includes waterproof mascara as I spend a lot of time on the tube. This cleanser took everything off first time.

The instructions say to cleanse once, pat dry and then cleanse again. I followed these instructions and my face had no trace of make up whatsoever. Not to mention it didn’t irritate my skin or my eyes even when removing my eye make up.

I have been using this product for nearly 4 weeks now and although I have fairly good, even skin anyway, even I can see a difference. I’m only 18 and so occasionally still get minor break outs of spots and these have dramatically reduced in frequency and severity. My complexion is brighter and where I would normally have slight redness in the areas prone to break outs, these have completely disappeared!

 

Worth the money?

Yes! Every single penny. And so is the Skin Boost Tonic and Skin Repair Moisturiser! (but more on that later).

This is an absolute must have for me now and I love the fact that all the ingredients are natural and responsibly sourced. If you’re nervous about spending £14.25 for the starter kit (100ml product and 2 cloths) then why not purchase the 30ml tube that comes with 1 muslin cloth for only £5.50?

You could even check out their ‘Travel and Try Me’ kits 🙂 go on, I promise you won’t regret it!

The Company

Liz Earle prides itself on using natural ingredients harvested in a sustainable way and never tests on animals. It is also a British company 🙂

My Experience

A make up artist recommended I try Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser as I had mentioned to her that I use Lancome cleansing milk and toner (which is rather expensive).

After having it confirmed that she uses it herself (and had amazing skin!) I ventured on to the website which I found very user friendly and easy to navigate. There is lots of information on which products are best for which skin type and the site is brilliant if you are new to a proper skincare regime and are unsure of which products to go for.

Each product has several different size options in the drop down box to choose from before adding it to your basket. These ranged from a year subscription or multi buy packs to starter kits and tester size versions of each product which I thought was brilliant. 

The first order I placed I thought I may as well try out some other products from the line. The products I ordered are as below:

  • Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser Starter kit at £14.95 which comes with 100ml of cleanser in a plastic bottle with pump and 2 muslin cloths
  • Gentle Face Exfoliator at £13.50 for 70ml
  • Deep Cleansing Mask Starter Kit at £14.00 which comes with 2 sponges

I chose the standard delivery option for £3.00 and my order arrived in about 3 days, far quicker than expected and everything was beautifully packaged in tissue paper with a pale blue sticker instead of tape.

Inside my box was also a Product Guide, a letter welcoming me to membership on the website and a hand signed thank you note for my order, so far I was very impressed!

Even better than this, I was also sent a free 50ml sample of the Instant Boost Skin Tonic (a lovely, gentle floral toner) which was so exciting!

The Products

I was so impressed with the products and service I received that I went ahead and made a second and then a third order … I have gone a little Liz Earle crazy but these are gentle, effective products that really do what they say on the bottle.
