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 Lovely Cleansing Ritual I have used the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish for some time now, I thoroughly enjoy the cleansing process using this wonderful product and I always recommend to friends and family. It's my little bit of me time in the evenings, something I look forward to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleanse and polish I love this product and have used it for some time. Is it possible that the free product that you get with it would be a travel size cleanse and polish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful refreshing facial cleanser I have been using Cleanse and Polish in excess of 25 years and never intend to stop. It leaves my skin lovely and clean and refreshed. I have recommended to many of my friends and family and converted many. I don’t know what I would do if I could never get it again. Well done Liz Earle for making one mature lady very happy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice product I started to use this product as well as other Liz Earle ones, I have found that I break out in spots a lot more then I ever did before but I haven’t narrowed it down whether it’s this or a different one. The product is very nice to use and takes make up off very well. I love the hot cloth which makes my face feeling very refreshed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous I have been using Cleanse and Polish for years and wouldn’t change to any other. Fabulous cleanser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! Im fairly new to Liz Earle products and I’m starting to discover my favourites. This is one of them. The eucalyptus hit in the morning when inhaled is wonderfully awakening (my routine is that I spread it into both palms and cup them over my nose and mouth before rubbing it into my face! Same with the exfoliating when using in the shower.). The cloth used to remove the product really does gently exfoliate and my skin (mature) feels so clean and soft. I’ve ditched the more expensive stuff I have been using for years! So glad I tried it.

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!!

Asked by: Sue 63
Hi, thanks for getting in touch. Our Cleanse & Polish in the Pump is still available to purchase and can be found here on our website https://www.lizearle.com/skincare/our-range/cleanser/F01113.html I hope this helps - The Liz Earle Beauty Co. Team

Is a wash cloth included with the 200ml cleanser?

Asked by: Frenchliving
We sell our Cleanse & Polish (200ml and 100ml tubes) both with and without cloths, as we appreciate that the cloths may not be required each time and we like to provide a choice to our customers. Its called a 'starter pack' with the cloths included which comes in a green box along with the cleanser, and if the cleanser is without the cloths it will be the tube or pump on its own. The price is also reflected both with or without the cloth accessory. Furthermore, our trio sets of Cleanse & Polish do not include the cloths and they are the singular items on their own. Hope this helps. – The Liz Earle Team.

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

Does the actual packaging changed?

Asked by: Anonymous
Hi there, thanks for getting in touch. We can confirm that we have updated our Cleanse & Polish packaging and the new packaging of Cleanse & Polish is 55% r-HDPE (recycled High Density polyethylene) & 45% ULDPE (ultra low density polyethylene).   So it is a mix of polyethylene which will be widely recyclable via kerbside here in the UK. We do hope this helps. - 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

Are your products gluten free?

Asked by: Revlaurajane
Hi, thanks for getting in touch! Our suppliers have confirmed to us that the wheatgerm oil we use is gluten-free. The oil is cold pressed and deacidified; these processes mean that gluten is left behind and will not be present in the oil. Also, the Natural Source Vitamin E (Tocopherol) we use in our products is derived from soyabean oil and as such is also gluten-free. Nevertheless, as a common sense precaution we would always recommend a 24 hour patch test is conducted prior to the first use of any new skincare product. It might help you to know, that a full ingredients list for each of our products can be found on our website. I hope this information helps however, if you do require any further assistance, please reach out to our Customer Centre by calling 01983 813913 or email naturallyactive@lizearle.com – The Liz Earle Beauty Co.

Is rose and lavender cleanse & polish availed in  pump, also do you still sell 200mi pump?

Asked by: Frannie
Hello Frannie, Our Rose & Lavender Cleanse & Polish 'Relaxing Edition' is now packaged in our new eco-conscious recyclable tube, made with 55% recycled materials. The pump is no longer available. Our classic 200ml Cleanse & Polish is available in a tube but not in a pump. 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 hope this helps.

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: https://www.lizearle.com/content/our-packaging.html .We hope this information helps. - Liz Earle Beauty Co.
