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 A FANTASTIC product I was given this for Christmas and have already bought a larger size in the sale. This will be my cleanser forever. I don’t use the cloth, l just rub the cream on gently, wash off with warm water and splash with cold. My skin feels great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No other cleanser necessary My niece bought me my first kit as a present, since she swears by it. I’ve used it exclusively ever since.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from great skin cleanser but creates eye puffiness! After using decade of eye makeup remover, the rep at Boots suggested that I try this for removing my eye makeup. It does work very well with only 2-3 swipe to get makeup off. However, every morning I wake up with a massive puffiness and dark circles under my eyes. I really think the moisture from this product is the culprit. Hence, will only use it to take off foundation and avoid the eye areas. Too bad... :-(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use cleanser I use this cleanser all the time and have noticed a real difference in my skin. It’s texture is improved and where I was once prone to spots, I hardly ever get them now. A 100ml pot lasts for ages so really good value

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fir Dry / Sensitive Skin I have been plagued with eczema from birth. Finding a face cleanser to suit my sensitive skin is very difficult and especially when you want to treat yourself to something special. Well Ladies (and gents), this is it! Touch wood, Luz Earle’s Cleanse and Polish is lovely, leaving my skin feel clean-the facial scrub is gentle too. So if like me you want to treat yourself and not get bogged down with plain cleansers, try this one. It’s one treat I can afford

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it usually It’s my go to product but I didn’t receive my package this time. Emailed Liz Earle and I’m yet to hear back from them. Will essentially be a Royal Mail issue but would like my products please.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG game changer I received this product from a friend as a Christmas gift. What a game changer! Never has removing make up before bedtime been so easy. I’m left feeling very cleansed. Product for life! A must buy!!!!!!!!!
Date published: 2022-01-10
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice but overpriced. I bought this as a Christmas gift. It’s pleasant to use but ultimately is only on the skin for seconds before being washed away. I find a cheaper cleanser with a flannel or cloth just as effective and won’t be repurchasing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny My mother-in-law started using this product when it was first introduced. When I first tried it I was hooked, not only because it is the best face cleanser but because I only buy animal-friendly products. I went off the product for a while due to a price increase. But today my 49-year-old skin very much responds well to this product like no other.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love this cleanser I've been using Cleanse and Polish for many years and I love it, even as my skin ages. It's gentle and yet perfect for removing make up. My only complaint is that it's difficult to buy without the cloth included - I have so many of these and would prefer to only buy one when I need them. Still love the cleanser though

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful texture I have been using Cleanse and Polish for many years now, having bought my first ever pump on the Isle of Wight when I had just been made aware of Liz Earle! I am devoted to it and feel very bereft if for any reason I run out of it. I find it cleans my face very well without being harsh and leaves my face feeling soft and fresh. Thank you, Liz Earle!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stalwart of my cleansing regime. Have been using this product for several years. Although in my seventies now, my skin has remained in excellent condition. It is great for sensitive skin, and is mildly fragranced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never use anything else. I have used Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish for quite a few years now. I don't think I have ever thought about any other cleanser. It is just second nature to me now. I use it morning and night. My granddaughter who is only 20 asked for Liz Earle products for her birthday. Cannot think of a better recommendation.

Thank you for your question. We can confirm that we do not use either sodium lauryl sulphate or sodium laureth sulphate in any of the Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare range, including our Cleanse & Polish. Hope this helps. - The Liz Earle Beauty Co Team.

Please bring back the pumps. I find it difficult to squeeze tubes, I think I have now bought up all the stock of pumps from Boots & John Lewis!!

can i still purchase 100ml pump cleanse and polish ?

Asked by: Helen B
Hello, thank you 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. Rather than remove the Cleanse & Polish pump from our range just yet, we are giving our customers all the tools they need to make an informed decision about whether to buy the pump or the tube. As to avoid any unnecessary waste, you may see both our previous (Cleanse & Polish pumps) and new packaging (Cleanse & Polish tubes) on shelf together at this time. Thank you for being understanding whilst our packaging transitions. You may find how packaging is the top of our agenda an interesting read: .We hope this information helps. - Liz Earle Beauty Co.
