Cleanse & Polish The Results

Cocoa flower

(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.


(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.


(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 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 Love this product Bought Liz Earle as I have never bought any products from this range, so I thought I would try something different. Fab products, and would definitely buy again especially if offers are on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wouldn’t use anything else! Have used Cleanse and Polish for more than a decade. I wouldn’t use anything else. Gentle on my skin but cleanses thoroughly and removes make-up. I have had problematic skin but Cleanse and Polish suits it perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have used this for over 16 years , I cannot imagine using anything else that works as well

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleanse and polish I’ve had Liz Earle products for many years now. I enjoy the refreshing feel and look of the Trio. Especially the Hot cleanse and polish. I use on a daily basis. A rich clean feel on your face. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! I came back to LE cleanser after a dabble with other brands. In the end I decided to simplify my routine and I know cleanse & polish works, never dries my skin out and leaves it cleansed and soft. I am a mature lady and feel it is kind to my ageing skin. I like the fact the ingredients are pure and the muslin cloths seem to take the cleansing process to another level, removing makeup and the day’s grime. Ordering is easy too and it’s a pleasure to open the parcel ( one thing - are the packing noodles recyclable?)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth Skin I have been buying this for a few years now and my skin feel so fresh and smooth.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bergamot and Juniper is better Used the Cleanse and Polish for several years until LE brought out the Bergamot and Juniper version which is much better. Sadly it's not always available so I had to purchase it from a different source

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Collection Really like this set, perfume ideal for everday and rest of prcoducts compliment
Date published: 2022-02-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely product I needed a change early last year and as I haven’t used Liz Earle before I decided to try it. The formula is rich and creamy, smells lovely and removes all my makeup without my skin feeling taut or dry. Removing it with a moist cloth leaves it feeling fresh and clean. My skin feels plump, soft and moist and I am very comfortable in it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect cleanser. Moisturises, doesn’t strip. Works with my sensitive eczema and allergy prone skin. Perfect fresh, clean smelling scent.
Date published: 2022-01-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleanse & Polish I've been using Cleanse & Polish for over 10 years now and can't imagine using anything else. It's kind to my skin which always feels very clean after use and I have to say my skin is much better now than it was before using C & P.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trustworthy I have been using Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish for more than ten years! I believe it is an outstanding product. I strayed once trying a different cleanser, but returned to Cleanse and Polish. I have recommended Liz Earle products to my friends who also use some of the products. I also like Instant tonic boost
Date published: 2021-12-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have used Cleanse and Polish for approximately 20 years, and wouldn’t use anything else on my face. It leaves me feeling refreshed.
Date published: 2021-12-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would give 10 stars! I cannot rave about this product enough. I won't use anything else. My 51 year old skin loves it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and effective product My wife has been using Liz Earle products for over 20 years and everyone comments on her lovely skin would never be without her cleanse and polish and moisturizing cream
Date published: 2021-11-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE only cleanser I have been using Cleanse & polish for years. THE best cleanser ever. Needed a couple of small ones as I am going away for a short break. Glad you stick this.
Date published: 2021-10-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazed beyond words I’ve had these products for around 2 weeks now. My skin before was so red and sensitive, but now the redness has cleared up massively. I’m almost at a point where I can go out without worrying about putting make up on!
Date published: 2021-09-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A daily dependable, in a small package. I have been using Cleanse & Polish for many years, since being introduced to it as a present. I hadn’t realised just how much I had been missing actually “washing” my face as opposed to using cleaning creams or gels. In fact, I had sometimes given in to trying various soaps but hadn’t found one that didn’t cause problems for my eyes. No such issues with Cleanse & Polish…make-up, including mascara, is removed easily & completely without any unpleasant soreness to the eyes. My skin is left feeling totally clean & fresh without any dryness or tightness. I use a pump container at home but always keep at least one 30ml tube handy for weekends & holidays away. I wouldn’t want to try anything new now that I have found my perfect cleanser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why all the cardboard?! I'm a huge fan of all LE products and have been for many years. I ordered 2 travel sizes of cleanse and polish during the current sale with free P&P but was shocked to unwrap the parcel..each little tube was in its own box wrapped with the cleaning cloth. Then it was all enclosed in a larger box with the foam noodles and tissue paper,plus the card saying who had packed it! It could all have gone in a jiffy bag and I'm sure it would have been fine! In these times of trying to reduce packaging,LE seems to be increasing it! I know it can all be recycled,but what a waste..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My best friend I am in love with this product, and I couldn't do without it. I have been using cleanse & polish for many years
Date published: 2021-08-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good Debated purchasing this for a very long time. Glad I have, only used this for a couple of days but skin feels soft and clean. The cloth is a great Tool to really clean the skin. Feeling positive that this will be a permanent addition to my skin care routine
