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 Wonderful I've been using Cleanse &Polish for a few years now ever since I had it as a Christmas present. I've not looked back since and actually wished I had this when I was a teenager. My breakout skin is so much better when I use this and the cloths are great for sloughing off the dead skin leaving it brighter and softer. I actually feel like I glow afterwards! Some might think it's a bit pricey but it's actually very good value as you don't need a lot and using it daily it still lasts a good couple of months. I'd say don't waste money con anything else, just try this and you'll see and feel a difference straight away.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No longer my favourite beauty product I’ve used the Cleanse and Polish routine for over 15 years, I was delighted to receive a couple of gift sets for Christmas but so disappointed with the Cleanse and Polish. It’s no longer a rich and buttery texture but a thin and slippery feel cleanser - what have you changed and why? Once I’ve used up the Cleanse and Polish from my Christmas presents I think I’ll be looking for something else.

My skin has started feeling dry after I have used the cleanse and polish. I am not sure why. Do you have any advice? I follow with your toner and then moisturiser.

Asked by: Suz27
Hi, thanks for getting in touch. We're sorry to hear that your skin feels dry after using our Cleanse & Polish. If your skin is feeling particularly dry or a little unbalanced, we'd recommend our Probiotic Milk Cleanser. Our Probiotic range will protect and strengthen skin`s natural moisture barrier to prevent water loss through the day/night for velvet soft, deeply hydrated and balanced skin. This can be used continuously, or when you feel that the condition of your skin has improved, you can try returning to our Cleanse & Polish. We hope this information helps - The Liz Earle Beauty Co.

Hi. My ten year old has just started to get slightly congested/blackheads around her nose area. She is very young and only uses water. Would it be ok to use c&p a few times a week or once daily to cleanse her skin? Her skin type is normal.

Asked by: Serena B
Thank you for your question. We can only support the use of skin care products, such as cleanse, tone and moisturise; for children that are 12 years and above, providing that the directions for use are followed correctly and as directed on pack. We would not recommend introducing any skincare items at 10 years or such as young age ideally. We hope this information is helpful, but please do not hesitate to contact our customer centre team on 01983 813913 if we can be of any further assistance. – Liz Earle Beauty Co.

Hi there,  I have something called bletheritis (eye condition) is this product sensitive enough for sensitive eyes?  Do you have any samples I could try? 

Asked by: Victor
Thank you or your question. Whilst we do have a number of customers with conditions such as bletheritis commenting positive results, our products are not intended for medical use. There are no guarantees our range will suit everyone, as we don’t know what ingredients your skin/eyes may be sensitive to. Therefore, we would highly recommend carrying out patch test the products before use, to make sure they are suitable for your skin. A small amount should be applied close to the area of intended use (behind the ear is ideal in this instance). Should you experience any redness, irritation or discomfort during the next 24 hours or at any point during use, then you should immediately discontinue use and get in touch with us. We do not have samples to send we’re afraid, where we have such a generous returns policy. If for any reason your purchase is not suitable for your use or you do not like, we are happy to exchange or refund within 60 days of you receiving your order, even after you've tried it. We feel this is more beneficial to our customers than providing samples, as it gives you the opportunity to try the product for some time to decide if it is suitable for you before committing to your purchase. We hope this information is helpful, but please do not hesitate to contact our customer centre team on 01983 813913 if we can be of any further assistance. – Liz Earle Beauty Co.

Hi, I’ve been using cleanse & polish for years & I love it. However since opening my last tube I seem to have developed really itchy eyes, have any of the ingredients changed at all?

Asked by: Hev66
Hi there, thanks for getting in touch. I am pleased to confirm that whilst the packaging has been updated, we have not updated the formulation of our Cleanse & Polish. Would you like to email us directly at naturallyactive@lizearle.com and let us know where your Cleanse & Polish was purchased, the size, and the batch code - which can be found on the base of a pump, or the crimp at the top of a tube, for example - U1234A. We look forward to hearing from you. - The Liz Earle Beauty Co. Team

Can the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polished be used with eye lash extensions (I.e. does it contain oil that will dissolve the glue used to keep eye lash  extension on?)

Asked by: JuneyP
Hi there, thanks for getting in touch. Our Cleanse & Polish has not been tested for use with eye last extensions, and so we would recommend speaking to your beautician for further advice. We do hope this helps. - The Liz Earle Beauty Co. Team

As this says it's a gentle exfoliater would it be recommended to not use it every day
