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 Feels like a mini spa treatment I just love this cleanser! It's really good at removing any makeup (even foundations that can't be washed off with soap) and it never dries out or irritates my skin. The smell is really nice and relaxing too and together with the hot cloth it makes me feel like I'm at a spa for a moment whenever I use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my sensitive skin! I have extremely sensitive and dry skin which is not great on a good day but worse when it flares up in the winter season or other times of the year. I have used cleanse and polish on my face for a few years now and find it great for my skin. It’s gentle for my sensitive skin yet effective in cleansing. Supporting the dryness of my skin it immediately softens it leaving it feeling more supple and a good foundation for me then layering my serum and moisturiser. I visibly see results after using this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love C & P. I've been using Cleanse & Polish since the pink packaging. I love it !!. My skin is so sensitive but, I don't realise it is because C & P is so gentle on my skin. It cleanses really throughly but really gently. Leaves my dkin so soft. I've even got lots of my family using it. I'll never use anything else As long as it doesn't change !.... Please don't change it 🙏....!!... I don't use the "skin repair " now. It's too greasy for me and the lovely smell that was, has gone... The skin Tonic tried to change and was awful !. Thankfully this was realised and the original skin Tonic brought back. 👌 I would rather the "original". Rather than the scented ones. Due to my sensitive skin. Please don't change C & P...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gentle and Clean This is my favourite cleanser. I have sensitive skin and have tried lots of makeup removers including balms, and all have ended with breakouts, so in the past I tended to avoid them and just double cleansed instead. This cleanser does both steps easily and leaves your skin feeling great and hydrated after

Has there recently been a change to the formulation of this or your matching toner? This and the toner used to be so good for sensitive skin but I’m finding it is triggering my eczema when it never used to so wanted to enquire whether you’ve changed it?

Asked by: Mmag
I have sensitive skin and also have used the tonic for years. I haven’t noticed any change as yet , but I am using tonic that is 6 months old .

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.
