(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.


(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.


(Jojoba esters)

Prized for their gentle exfoliating action, jojoba beads leave skin clearer, brighter and more polished. To create our naturally biodegradable beads that are kind to the environment, pale yellow jojoba oil is hydrogenated to create a hard white wax, which is then warmed and dropped from a height to create smooth spheres.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product but always out of stock Liz Earle Gentle Exfoliator is a great product but it is never available to buy on the site and places like boots are always out of stock too ... so if you are lucky enough to have bought 2 or 3 in advance you have a fantastic product and it makes your skin feel amazing ... but it is frustrating that such low stock is produced ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a lovely surprise I was given a free sample of this facial exfoliator with my recent order. What a treat! Used it pretty much straight away and was delighted with the result - gorgeous product, gentle on my sensitive skin, leaving it feeling so smooth. Will definitely be buying some in my next order.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the product, but not the new packaging Love Liz Earle products, with the Gentle Face Exfoliator being a bathroom staple for several years. Effective product, pleasant to use and subtle, fresh fragrance. I’ve tried other ‘luxury brands’ facial exfoliators, but nothing tops this one. The new tube is fine until you get towards the end, then it’s tricky to get the last of the product out, plus squeezing creates sharp corners (similar to the old fashioned metal toothpaste tube). Please please change the tube back to more user friendly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gentle but effective This exfoliator is a lovely, gentle, effective product. It’s ideal for sensitive, older skin and I really love it. I use it once a week and it works, beautifully, for me. I certainly see it becoming part of my regime, so I foresee future orders.

I know you use this after cleansing, but should it be used on dry or wet skin? Thanks 

Asked by: Riah
It’s best on damp skin. The exfoliator itself is great, however due to the dreadfully impractical packaging I just cant use it anymore.

Could you tell me if you are actively looking at different packaging options for this product in light of the reviews or not? I won’t be buying it again until the packaging is sorted.

Asked by: Leona
Hi there, thank you for your question. As part of our journey to tread as lightly as possible with the impact we have on the planet, we have updated our mask and treatment range to be much easier to recycle from home. Our new packaging is made from recyclable aluminium. Not only this, the range looks much more consistent with one another, making it easier to find the targeted solution for your skincare need. Whilst we can confirm we are not currently looking to change this packaging, we will certainly pass your feedback on to our Packaging Team. Comments from customers really help us when making future improvements. In the meantime, we can confirm that our Gentle Face Exfoliator 15ml travel size does not come in an aluminium tube, but instead comes in our recyclable plastic tubes. We hope this helps, but for any further assistance, please do contact our customer centre team on 01983 813 913, or email us at - The Liz Earle Customer Centre Team.

What is the difference between your 2 exfoliators please?

Asked by: TrudyW
I use Cleanse and Polish most nights, the Gentle Exfoliator about once a week. I am aged 70. My daughter aged 42 uses Cleanse and Polish every day both morning and night as a 'refreshing daily cleanser' as she describes it. She uses the Gentle Exfoliator every few days, a.m. only as a deep scrub. I love the the Brightening Treatment Mask and use it about 2 or 3 times a week in the morning. It is not like a heavy mud or mask which tightens on the skin, just revitalises and makes one feel and look good.

Gentle exfoliator says all skin types but on the back it says not for sensitive skin.

I hope this helps however, should you require any further assistance with this, please contact our Customer Centre by emailing - The Liz Earle Beauty Co. Team

Hi, is this suitable for teenage acne? is the product non-comedogenic? How often should I use the scrub?

Asked by: mmauve
Hi, thank you for your question. Our Gentle Face Exfoliator is ideal for teenager acne prone skin types where it contains moisturising cocoa butter to soften skin, purifying eucalyptus and fine jojoba beads which gently buffs away dead skin cells and impurities to help clear up blackheads, blocked pores and congested skin. We would recommend using this 2-3 times a week. 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.

Is this an enzyme, chemical or physical scrub exfoliator? Thanks

Asked by: Rsr7690
Thank you for your question. We can confirm that our Gentle Face Exfoliator is a physical exfoliator where you lightly massage onto face and neck in circular movements, concentrating on the forehead, nose, chin and jawline, avoiding the eye area. It contains jojoba wax beads which are prized for their gentle exfoliating action, jojoba beads leave skin clearer, brighter and more polished. We hope this information helps. If you do require any further assistance with this, please email, contact us via Social Media, or call our Customer Centre on 01983 813913 and we'd be happy to help - The Liz Earle Beauty Co Team
