Cocoa

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.

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.

Jojoba

JOJOBA BEADS
(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 3 out of 5 by from Great exfoliator - shame they changed packaging Lovely to use on my skin without being harsh. Have used it for years - however SO frustrating they have changed packaging. The pump was so much easier to use in the shower and control how much used then this fiddly container, please bring back option of a pump!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So gentle! I have extremely sensitive skin ( eczema history) . Have had steroid injections etc. can only use cleanse and polish and gentle face exfoliator . They are both outstanding for me. Can’t use much else because of fragrance etc so for people like myself these two items are a godsend . Please don’t change the range! Great as they are .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exfoliating Love the product. Actually prefer the new packaging , can get every last bit of the cream out .

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hate the new packaging Been using this for years and love the exfoliator. However I absolutely hate the new tube and may not buy it again because of this! I'm used to grabbing it in the shower and hardly having to look to use it. Now I'm stood there trying to get the lid back on. It's a pain and I assume a cheaper option. Why do they have to change something customers have been buying for years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great product - new packaging is awful Love this exfoliator, have used it for years, and it keeps my skin looking beautifully clear without drying it out. But the new packaging is not fit for purpose, hard to get the product out, the lid doesn’t go back on well and I keep this in the shower and it has grown mould over it - unlike any other product in my shower so I assume it’s the metal tube. Unfortunately am now going to have to find a new exfoliator.

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. 

Asked by: Bev62
Hi, thanks for getting in touch. If you have particularly sensitive skin, we would advise caution when using our Gentle Face Exfoliator due to the stimulating nature of this product. I hope this helps however, should you require any further assistance with this, please contact our Customer Centre by emailing naturallyactive@lizearle.com - 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 naturallyactive@lizearle.com, 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
