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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cleanser I first tried cleanse and polish through birch box. I fell in love with how thoroughly it cleans all my makeup off. The scent is so soothing and I never feel dry afterwards. I fells like it leaves my skin so clean and never dry. I alway buy several of the large cleanser at a time because the price is so reasonable. I was super disappointed when they stopped shipping to the United States during the pandemic. But I recently was able to purchase again and bought several because I do not want to run out. The packaging is so nice, when I receive the product it feels like I spent a fortune. I know they take pride in their product. I have not found a better cleanser for my face - I will continue to buy this as long as they sell it!!!! I absolutely love it!!!

Hot important is it for the cloth to be hot?

Is it important for the cloth to be warm or does it work just as well with a cold cloth?
Asked by: Preston
We advise rinsing the cotton cloth in hand-hot water before gently polishing off the Cleanse & Polish. However, if you choose to rinse the cloth in cold water, this will not affect the performance and will still remove the product effectively.

Is this good for acne prone skin?

Could you please advise if this product is good for acne prone skin? If not, then what other products would you recommend for acne prone skin? I’ve never tried these products before and looking for something that is good on acne prone skin?
Asked by: PJassal
Cleanse and Polish is great for all skin types and ages. I started using it several years ago on my 50+ year old skin having seen it recommended on a TV shopping channel. I was so impressed that I advised my 70+ year old mother to start using it. I was getting so many comments about how good my skin was looking - a first for me! I then advised my teenage sons to use it to help with their teenage skin and then one of their girlfriends started using it to help with her acne. The Cleanse and Polish was so successful that it improved her skin and worked far better than the hospital prescribed meds. Everyone that I have recommended it to over a very wide age span has been so impressed with the Cleanse and Polish. Give it a go and see how you get on. I’m totally hooked!
