Cleanse & Polish The Results

Cocoa flower

COCOA BUTTER
(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.

Rosemary

ROSEMARY EXTRACT
(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.

Chamomile

CHAMOMILE EXTRACT
(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

EUCALYPTUS ESSENTIAL OIL
(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 Still the best Around 18 months ago I made a huge mistake and thought I could find a better cleanser. A bad case of acne and generally upset skin later, I’m back on the Cleanse & Polish. This just works for my skin. I’ll never leave you again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never use anything else! Before a friend pointed me to Cleanse and Polish and gave me a bit to try, I had a permanently red, sore looking face. Combination skin meant that either I was left with flaky, sore, dry patches, or greasy, spotty areas. I tried so many different products over the years, but it was the only one that produced a lasting improvement and really does the trick. I would never use anything else

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best I ran out of Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser so bought a much cheaper supermarket version hoping it would be as good. Wrong! I used it for a couple of weeks, it didn't feel as though it was removing all of my make up and my skin felt rough. So I had to order Liz Earle again. It's the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deeply cleanses This has been the only product that has actually worked in cleansing my excessively oily skin, and in clearing breakout prone areas. No more shine and fewer spots. My skin looks and feels CLEAN!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best cleanser Iv used Iv spent 35 years trialling and testing cleansers. And there are only a couple I would buy repeatedly. This is one of them and top of the list. The consistency is smooth, the feeling of being utterly clean afterwards is fresh and lovely and my breakouts, although rare are at a minimum. The only issue I have is that a cotton cloth or two should be provided in the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Product! I have been using this product for many years now. A few times I have tried alternative cleansers, but each time I have returned to Liz Earle because of the visible difference it makes to my skin. The values of a business are very important to me, and play a significant part in my purchasing decisions. I am delighted about Liz Earle's ethical credentials, and that it is cruelty free. A little goes a long way, so don't be worried about the price. It does deliver value for money. I can't recommend this product highly enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply bliss! Having been someone who never used a cleanser and in all honesty, didn't quite believe the hype surrounding the cleanse and polish, was totally blown away by just how beautiful this cleanser really is and have been hooked ever since! It has become a daily ritual that I wouldn't go without. Obviously premium products come with a premium price but in fairness, discounts are quite often an option. Buy and try and you certainly won't be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Product - Hope You Don't Change It This is something I have used for years now. It's a lovely facial cleansing product and you can use it on your eyes too, to remove mascara and eyeshadow that's welded into place if you use an eyeshadow primer. I really like this product and I hope it is not subject to change like the toner has been. It smells nice - not overpowering at all. I suffer with quite oily skin even at 50 and this helps keep my skin under control from break outs. Product is a little pricy at full price but if you can't get this on any offer at all then it's worth every penny if you do have to pay full price. As always, quick delivery from Liz Earle in environmentally friendly packaging.

Is a wash cloth included with the 200ml cleanser?

Asked by: Frenchliving
We sell our Cleanse & Polish (200ml and 100ml tubes) both with and without cloths, as we appreciate that the cloths may not be required each time and we like to provide a choice to our customers. Its called a 'starter pack' with the cloths included which comes in a green box along with the cleanser, and if the cleanser is without the cloths it will be the tube or pump on its own. The price is also reflected both with or without the cloth accessory. Furthermore, our trio sets of Cleanse & Polish do not include the cloths and they are the singular items on their own. Hope this helps. – The Liz Earle Team.
