Cleanse & Polish The Results

Cocoa flower

(Theobroma cacao)

Famous for its excellent emollient properties, we source our cocoa butter from West Africa, where fermented beans of the cocoa tree are roasted, cracked and ground to give a powdery solid called cocoa mass, from which cocoa butter is pressed.


(Rosmarinus officinalis)

Used for its antioxidant properties, we source our rosemary from Spain, where the extract is filtered from the needle-shaped leaves of the plant.


(Anthemis nobilis)

Legendary for its skin-soothing properties, the flowers of this aromatic perennial are harvested in England in the summer, before the ingredient is solvent extracted from the fragrant flower.


(Eucalyptus globulus)

Renowned for its purifying properties and invigorating aroma, we source our eucalyptus from China, where our essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves of the fast-growing eucalyptus tree.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 25 years of use I could not be happier with Cleanse and polish. I have tried other products but nothing compares to C & P. I have a greasy forehead and C & P keeps it under control all day. Could not be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I have used this cleanser for so many years I have lost count, probably almost since it was launched. Whilst all the other facial products that I use constantly change, I have never wavered from cleanse and polish, it is that good. This not only cleanses effectively, I also feel that it is actively good for my complexion.

Does it matter if I soak the cloth into a cold water instead of hot??

Asked by: Larm
Thank you for your question. We recommend using warm water when cleaning, rather than very hot or very cold water as these two extremes can irritate the skin. We hope this information helps. Quality and service are at the heart of everything we do, so please contact us if you require any further assistance. - The Liz Earle Customer Care Centre Team.

Have you recently changed the formula in any way? I've been using this for years and have recently noticed it's not as creamy as before, plus the fragrance doesn't seem as strong

Asked by: KLMP
I've also been using the Cleanse & Polish for a great number of years and have noticed that it does not seem to be cleansing my skin like it has done in the past even though I am still using it twice a day.  I am really disappointed as I have sung its praises to many people over the years and had always been pleased with it until recently.  Why mess with an award winning product?

Hi can I ask why does this pump no longer come with a muslin cloth? Always used to unable to use cleanse& polish without it all the other c& ps have one makes it Very expensive having to buy an additional cloth regards Pearl 

Asked by: Star girl
Hi there, thanks for getting in touch. We are on a journey to improve the sustainability of our packaging, and pump packs present more of a technical challenge for finding an easily recyclable solution that can also work with our formula safely. We have been continuing to look into this issue with our suppliers, however, we hope our customers will enjoy getting all the same Cleanse & Polish™ benefits from purchasing our eco-conscious tubes, which are not only recyclable, but also made using 55% post-consumer recycled materials.​ Whilst there are currently no plans to discontinue our Cleanse & Polish in the pumps, we have made the decision to no longer sell our Starter Kits with the cloths in the pump dispenser in the hope, that more of our customers will choose to purchase our fully recyclable 100ml Tube Starter Kit which comes with two cloths. We hope this information helps however, should you require any further assistance with this, we would ask you to kindly contact our Customer Centre by calling 01983 813913, or email - The Liz Earle Customer Centre Team

In this hot weather can you use cold water instead of hot, does it still give same benefits 

Asked by: Mims69
Hi there, thanks for getting in touch. Once our Cleanse & Polish has been removed with the pure cotton cloth, you can then rinse your skin in cold or warm water however, we would not recommend using extreme hot or cold water on the skin as this may cause some redness or sensitivity. We hope this information helps - The Liz Earle Customer Centre Team

Hi. My ten year old has just started to get slightly congested/blackheads around her nose area. She is very young and only uses water. Would it be ok to use c&p a few times a week or once daily to cleanse her skin? Her skin type is normal.

As this says it's a gentle exfoliater would it be recommended to not use it every day

Asked by: Alixx
Use it every morning and evening. It is wonderful, gentle and removes all makeup at night and wakens the skin in the morning. It does it all!

My skin has started feeling dry after I have used the cleanse and polish. I am not sure why. Do you have any advice? I follow with your toner and then moisturiser.

Asked by: Suz27
Hi, thanks for getting in touch. We're sorry to hear that your skin feels dry after using our Cleanse & Polish. If your skin is feeling particularly dry or a little unbalanced, we'd recommend our Probiotic Milk Cleanser. Our Probiotic range will protect and strengthen skin`s natural moisture barrier to prevent water loss through the day/night for velvet soft, deeply hydrated and balanced skin. This can be used continuously, or when you feel that the condition of your skin has improved, you can try returning to our Cleanse & Polish. We hope this information helps - The Liz Earle Beauty Co.
