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.

Aqua (water), Caprylic/capric triglyceride, Theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, Cetearyl alcohol, Cetyl esters, Cera alba (beeswax), Glycerin, Polysorbate 60, Sorbitan stearate, Eucalyptus globulus leaf oil, Rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract, Humulus lupulus (hops) extract, Chamomilla recutita (matricaria) flower extract, Propylene glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Panthenol, Benzoic acid, Dehydroacetic acid, Sorbitol, Limonene, Ethylhexylglycerin, Polyaminopropyl biguanide, Citric acid, Sodium hydroxide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best cleanser This is the best cleanser I’ve found. The fact that it is vegan too makes it the only one for me. I love its texture and how clean my face feels after use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleanse & Polish Ever since I first found Liz Earle, I think it was late 1980’s I have tried to use it every day since. I do prefer it with Neroli added.. I have recommended all of Liz Earle products to family and friends and have been thanked quite a few times for sharing. It’s getting a bit more expensive now because I buy for both my daughter and granddaughter. I would definitely recommend to anyone, your skin will thank you xx

Amazing product! Would love to figure out an expiration date: my product's batch code is U9198J. I will appreciate your answer!

Asked by: InnaM
Hi, thanks for getting in touch. Our products have been tested in accordance with industry standards and show a minimum shelf life of at least thirty six months. Many specific environmental factors influence the shelf life of a product, which means that we are unable to confirm for how long your Liz Earle product can be stored unopened once it has been despatched to you. On each of our products you will find the EU standard Period After Opening (PAO) symbol which identifies the 'lifetime' of a product once opened for the first time. It can be used as a guide once your product has been opened. The number inside the image of the pot tells you the number of months of this product's lifetime once opened, for example 9M indicates 9 months. We hope this information helps - The Customer Care Centre

Is cleanse and polish suitabke for teenage boy skin with breakouts?

Asked by: 1Tootsie
Hi, thanks for getting in touch. Suitable for all skin types including sensitive, the whole family can enjoy our Cleanse & Polish which is suitable for children from 10 years. This deeply cleanses and will gently exfoliate, to reveal clearer-looking skin. Used with the gently exfoliating pure cotton cloth, it lifts away dead skin for a smoother, brighter-looking glow. All our formulations are suitable for even the most sensitive skins however, as with all our products, we would recommend that you carry out a patch test when using any product for the first time. We hope this information helps however, should you require more bespoke skincare advice or, product recommendations, we would ask you to kindly contact our Customer Care Team by calling 01983 813913, and one of our friendly skincare experts would be happy to assist you further - The Customer Care Centre Team

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.
