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 Cleanse and polish I have used Liz Earle cleanse and polish for many years and absolutely love it, unfortunately I ran out of it just before going on my hols so had to buy something while away, but it most definitely did not stand up to Cleanse and polish, I have ended up with really sensitive skin around my nose very dry and peeling, I had too go to the doctors. So now I’m back with the best cleanse and polish, I hope it will help get my skin back to normal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing so pleased with results I've only used Cleanse and Polish and Cleanse and Glow for less than a week and I can't believe how good my skin looks.

Can't recommend this and the Cleanse and Glow enough!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good cleanser Used to love cleanse and polish but somehow, it isn't the treat it used to be. The smell of the original used to be heavenly, as was the toner. As a cleanser it's good but it's lost the treat appeal for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Different texture?? This most recent purchase seems thinner in comparison to my other and my skin doesn’t feel as clean after rinsing. It feels more greasy as if the product has left a film on my face. If alterations to the formula have been made, please revert to the original.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Have been using Cleanse and Polish for quite a few years now and I cannot imagine changing to any other cleanser. It is such a pleasant experience to wash and massage your face with such a lovely cream that it doesn’t matter if you think you are too tired as you come away feeling so refreshed and your skin is silky smooth from using the muslin cloth. It’s not often a product lives up to all the hype!

Hi can I ask why does this pump no longer come with a muslin cloth? Always used to unable to use cleanse& polish without it all the other c& ps have one makes it Very expensive having to buy an additional cloth regards Pearl 

Asked by: Star girl
Hi there, thanks 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.​ Whilst there are currently no plans to discontinue our Cleanse & Polish in the pumps, we have made the decision to no longer sell our Starter Kits with the cloths in the pump dispenser in the hope, that more of our customers will choose to purchase our fully recyclable 100ml Tube Starter Kit which comes with two cloths. We hope this information helps however, should you require any further assistance with this, we would ask you to kindly contact our Customer Centre by calling 01983 813913, or email naturallyactive@lizearle.com - The Liz Earle Customer Centre Team

In this hot weather can you use cold water instead of hot, does it still give same benefits 

Asked by: Mims69
Hi there, thanks for getting in touch. Once our Cleanse & Polish has been removed with the pure cotton cloth, you can then rinse your skin in cold or warm water however, we would not recommend using extreme hot or cold water on the skin as this may cause some redness or sensitivity.

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.

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

Asked by: Alixx
Use it every morning and evening. It is wonderful, gentle and removes all makeup at night and wakens the skin in the morning. It does it all!

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, is this suitable for teenage acne? And does the 200 ml come in a pump form? Should I use the cloth twice a day? is the product non-comedogenic?

Asked by: mmauve
Hi, thank you for your question. Our Cleanse & Polish is ideal for teenager acne prone skin types it contains eucalyptus and rosemary which gently purifies the skin, ridding it of excess oil without harshly stripping the skin (which causes more oil production). The exfoliation of the cotton cloth also helps to free the skin of blackheads, blemishes and excess oil while keeping the pores clear, for a clearer brighter complexion. For the best results we would recommend cleaning twice a day using the cloths. We can confirm we have a variety of sizes a 100ml or 200ml tube, and also a 100ml pump. None of the products in the Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare range have been tested for comedogenicity. However, we believe that one ingredient that could cause a product to be comedogenic is mineral oil and this is not something that is used in our skincare range, as we believe that plant oils are better for the skin. We hope this information helps. - The Liz Earle Beauty Co Team.
