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 Can't live without it.. I had been buying this for years in the UK, sometimes from the LE stores and often from QVC. I moved to Australia in 2021 thinking I could live without it but soon realised I can't. I love everything about it. I have reactive skin and just can't find anything else that works without causing some sort of skin concern. I'm so thankful for the international shipping (including the overseas discounts) meaning I can still get this whenever I need it although I tend to stock up to reduce my carbon footprint in postage. My only negative is that I wish it could be made without beeswax in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from hot cloth cleanser Parcel was beautifully packaged and arrived on time. The texture and consistency of the hot cloth cleanser is not as soft as I am used to using, so it might take longer to get used to using it. For me it doesnt glide as easily as I would like so I take extra care around the eye area. It takes a few goes with the cloth to ensure all the product has been removed prior to applying tonic/serum. I try warming the product up in my palms before applying which seems to help a bit for me. Would have preferred the product to be softer in texture, particularly for using around the eye area. I have only been using for about a week so very new to using the product. I will persevere as this product gets great reviews and maybe I just need to get used to using it:) There is another cleanser in the LE range (but not for use in the eye area) which looks as if it could be softer? Might give that one a try.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing Reformulation I noticed there was a distinct difference recently with this product. I have used the cleanse and polish for many years and love/recommended it to many people. The new version of the cleanser is grainy, almost like it has not emulisified correctly and is tough to get out of the tube. My skin has also not been as good as it used to be since using this new forumala. I have compared two bottles (one older, one newer) and you can see a difference in the order of ingredients listed and also some different names etc. The same thing happened previously to the skin tonic, and I really hope they revert back to the older formula, like they ended up doing with the skin tonic too!

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 have been using this for 20 years and I’ve most recently noticed that this is now leaving scum in my sink after use and it never did that before. There must have been a change to some cheaper ingredients for it to do this. The original smell is also changed as it’s lost that eucalyptus scent.

How to useLIZEARLE Naturally active napkin?

Asked by: EUGI
Hi, thanks for getting in touch. Used alongside our Cleanse & Polish, our Pure Cotton Cloths will gently exfoliate the skin. Rinse the cloth under hand-hot water and gently wring it out, then wipe away all traces of cleanser from your skin. Use with circular movements to stimulate the skin, dislodge dead skin cells and lift away impurities and make up. Rinse thoroughly after every use and allow the cloth to air dry naturally. We recommend that you pop them into a 30 degree white wash after every few uses to keep them fresh and clean. We hope this information helps - The Customer Care Centre

Has this changed, over the last few months I noticed a distinct sludgyness in the consistency, am looking for something else instead. It definitely not as good as it used to be.

Asked by: LeighMccc
Hi, thanks for getting in touch. We can confirm that there have been no recent changes made to the formulation of our Cleanse & Polish. Sometimes, due to differing harvesting methods we use along with the different locations and seasons, this can affect the natural plant oils and botanicals we use in our formulations. This may impact the colour, aroma or texture of a formulation. This should only be very minimal though and does not affect the performance of the product. We hope this information helps however, should you require any further assistance, we would ask you to kindly contact our Customer Care Centre by calling 01983 813913 or, email naturallyactive@lizearle.com - The Customer Care Centre

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

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.

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 naturallyactive@lizearle.com - The Liz Earle Customer Centre Team
