Cleanse & Glow The Results

Acerola Cherry

Exceptionally rich in antioxidants, our acerola cherries are handpicked while green to retain maximum nutritional content. Grown on small-scale farms in Pernambuco, Brazil, a single cherry can contain up to 80 times the vitamin C of an orange!

Renowned for its soothing and balancing properties, our potent organic black bee honey is created by protected rare black bees from alpine flora high in the Swiss Alps. Naturally fermented to boost its active properties, the honey is carefully harvested by hand.

Elderberry Oil

(Sambucus nigra)

With a smoothing and nourishing texture, our elderberry seed oil is sustainably wild-harvested in Podlachia, Poland. The nutritious seeds are a natural by-product of the juice industry and rich in essential fatty acids to support the skin barrier, plus protective antioxidants called anthocyanins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely and Fresh As I have to be careful what I use on my face, I wanted to give this Cleanse & Glow a try - a summer treat. It smells gorgeously fresh and so gentle on the skin.....up to now it hasn't affected my sensitive dry skin. As you need to use a little at a time, it's certainly good value for money. Would definitely recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gentle and gorgeous light fragrance Gentle cleanser used every morning in the shower. A wonderful process of watching it turn from a gel to creamy liquid. Feels gentle but effective. Does not dry out my skin and has a subtle gorgeous scent. I ran out of it for two days and really noticed a difference. I follow this up with the Cleanse and Glow Illuminating Gel Moisturiser. A great morning routine leaving me feel fabulous!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than cleanse and polish Perfect cleanser, gel, to oil to milk. I am on my third tube and have (almost) replaced my usual routine of hot cloth cleanser with this, love it! Throughly cleans without stripping, skin feels soft and improved texture over time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective and easy to use This is the perfect facial wash under the shower, in my case, in the morning. There’s no need for a muslin cloth, just your own hand. It comes off readily, has a good scent and leaves the face clean. Pleasant to use, affordable and effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels and smells amazing Thought I would try the glow collection after using the original cleanse and polish for the last 16 years. I am 30 and my mum got me hooked and I won’t use anything else. I love that it is all natural ingredients but as for this specifically, the feel of the gel in my skin and then melting into a creamy milk consistency while massaging it in encourages me to massage for longer, I have found my new favourite.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gel to milk cleanser does not glow As a devotee of cleans and polish since it’s launch in the late 90’s, I thought I would give cleanse and glow a try. Sadly very disappointed. firstly it doesn’t remove eye makeup as efficiently as it’s predecessor. But worst of all, it leaves my skin feeling tight and dry like a cheap cleansing milk from the 70’s Not for me…

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great luxurious cleanser Bought as a ‘try and see’ product. Loved how it left my skin…smooth and hydrated. Sadly the tube split before I’d finished it. Was it a one off? I bought a second tube as I liked the product but that did exactly the same…probably won’t buy again!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warming soothing glow I love this product it’s like magic how it warms in your hand and smooth gel across your face then becomes a cleansing milk. It’s like having an expensive facial in the comfort of your own home . I love it

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Interesting I had this as a free gift after buying usual products from John Lewis. I was looking forward to trying a different product and was intrigued by the gel to lotion formula. Sadly, I didn't get on with the product at all. I found it messy to use. I tried applying differing amounts of gel and damp to wet cloth to remove but couldn't find a pleasing method. I didn't feel I 'glowed' any more than usual and needed a good application of toner for my skin to feel clean. I shall stick with my tried and tested Cleanse and Polish which I have been happily using for eighteen years and am really pleased with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Face wash game changer! My favourite face gel/wash I have ever used. Massaging the gel in to a dry face before it turns to dreamy silky oil with the heat and then wash off with warm water. Face washing game changer!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Cleanser 😊 Amazing cleanser! Leaves my skin radiant, refreshed and not overdry. When you rub it into dry skin it turns from a gel into an oil and then into an milk after you massage water into your skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Embrace the change! I got this as part of a kit - which included the toner (I highly recommend the gorgeous toner). Initially, I didn't like the oil to milk faff, as I ended up splashing water all over the place. However, don't give up - the massage part of the cleanser is the absolute best part. I've always loved original C&P because I believe that facial massage is beneficial - with this gel cleanser it's on another level. Massaging the gel into your skin, feeling it warm up, really wakes me up in the morning and I can feel my face responding (I also use at night). I didn't enjoy throwing water on my face - so have gone back to gently removing the gel with a wet flannel - so you get a bit of the milk texture, but it doesn't go everywhere. I wouldn't use this to remove eye make-up - it can sting a little bit. You can't beat C&P for removing eye make-up. But, for non make-up wearers - go for it! For someone absolutely wedded to C&P this has been a revelation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love thus product I really like this product, leaves skin looking so healthy and glowing, I just have to be careful that I don't get it in my eyes as it does sting slightly something I have never had with cleanse and polish.

Can the cleanse and glow be used as a face mask? I have used Tamoxifen for ten years now and now have really dry patches where the skin flakes off. Only your Superskin for dry skin seems able to put it right. Might this gel also help?

Asked by: WendyEmma
I have used the cleanse and glow as a face mask. It lathers up pretty well. You could try it as a face mask Sorry that I can’t be more helpful Bea

What is the difference between this and your cleanse and polish? Can I use this morning and evening and will it remove makeup? I prefer this to messing about with cloths, even though it gets great reviews Thanks Diane

Asked by: Di25
Thank you for your question. Our Cleanse & Polish is a two-step cleanser that requires a cloth to remove the product and gently buff the skin. This cleanser has a creamy texture and offers a rich and deeper cleanse to reveal clearer-looking skin. Whereas our Cleanse & Glow has 3 textures (gel to oil to milk) and is a one-step cleanser that does not require a cloth and you can simply remove it by splashing your face with water. This cleanser delivers instantly brighter and radiant-looking skin. Both are ideal for all skin types including sensitive skin can be used to remove makeup and around the delicate eye area. If you prefer the convenience of a one-step cleanser you may wish to give our Cleanse & Glow a try. Please be assured that we have a great 60-day returns policy in place which gives you a great opportunity to try this at home, and if you are not a fan of it you can return this to us for an exchange or refund.

Can this be used on eyes 

Asked by: Al 25
Thank you for your question. We can confirm that our Cleanse & Glow can be used around the eye area to remove eye makeup. However, if you wear heavy or waterproof eye makeup, you may find Cleanse & Polish more suitable for your needs. Alternatively, our Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion can be used before or after your facial cleanse to help remove remaining traces of eye makeup. We hope this information helps. Quality and service are at the heart of everything we do, so please do not hesitate to email us at or call our customer centre on 01983 813913 if we can be of any further assistance. - The Liz Earle Customer Centre Team.

My skin is very dry after having covid19. I’ve been using cleanse and polish for years. Would this help me?

Asked by: Lulu26
I have quite sensitive skin and don't find this drying at all. Unlike foam cleansers it doesn't lather up on your skin and rinses of as a mild milk. I'd recommend trying it.

Hi I’ve read a lot about double cleansing (in Caroline hirions skin bible!) and currently use cleanse and polish . Would you recommend this for a double cleanse or just a nice addition instead of cleanse and polish sometimes ? 

Asked by: Chipshopblonde
I feel its nice to change your skin products so i do a few weeks with 1 and then switch back to cleanse and polish..

There are so many products now I find it very confusing. Does this replace the normal cleanse and polish or should it be used in addition? If so, how often? 

Asked by: Betty Boop
I find this works better for me if I use it in the morning to wash of any creams/serums I've applied overnight. Not enough to remove my make up at the end of the day as I don't think it would clean my face enough so I get a better cleanse with the cleanse and polish of an evening. It's a quick new addition to my skin routine for the morning and does leave my skin feeling plumped and glowy which would be lost on my pillow if I did use this of an evening . I have maturing sensitive skin, pro biotic range bought me out in tiny red spotty rashes so avoid now at all coats but cleanse and glow is so far OK .

Is this suitable for someone With roseaca prone skin?

Asked by: Pwincesschurchy
Thank you for your question. This cleanser has been tested on, and proven to be suitable for, sensitive skin. However, if you have sensitive or rosacea prone skin, we recommend doing a patch test with any new product, applying a small amount to your inner elbow and leaving for 24 hours to test suitability for your skin before using on your face. If you do not find Cleanse & Glow™ suitable for your sensitive skin, our Pro-Biotic Balancing Milk Cleanser may be a better match for you.- The Liz Earle Beauty Co Team.
