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 5 out of 5 by from Gentle Facial Scrub Thought I would try this product, as really like the Cleanse and Polish Cleanser... It is every bit as good as I expected...leaves skin soft and glowing.. Easy to rinse off too! Will definitely be buying this product again...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product but new packaging awful! I love this exfoliator, I’ve used to for years. It really makes my skin feel lovely after use. I don’t like the new packaging at all, the lid is difficult to replace, especially one handed when you have the product in your hand ready to use. The metal tube, while more eco friendly than a plastic alternative, makes it difficult to get all of the product out when you get near the end of a tube.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product I love this product and use it all the time. I prefer the old pump packaging as it is easier to use in the shower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the right texture I have been using this product for several years now and the texture is just right. It's not too harsh and has a creamy texture. Can be used on sensitive skin.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great exfoliator, shame about the packaging! I love this exfoliator and have used it for years. When I went to replace my last one I found the packaging had changed and it’s now in a tube rather than a pump. I’m really disappointed with it, it’s harder to use, the lid is difficult to get back on and the tube dents like the old style toothpaste tubes. Please bring the old pump dispenser back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cap Love the new packaging , tube much better than pump but the lid is so hard to get back on
Date published: 2022-02-16
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great product, awful new packaging I have been using this product for years. I've tried various other products but always go back to this. I bought some for my partner and it's all he uses now too. It used to come in a pump bottle that was easy to use in the shower, there was no product wastage and I only used what was needed. The new metal tube is awful. It squeezes out more than is needed, it's difficult to screw the top on and off in the shower, it can't be stood up and it still costs the same but it's in cheaper packaging and looks cheap.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful formula, annoying packaging. I’ve used this product for +10yrs. It’s creamy and gentle formulation is perfect for my skin, the aroma is beautiful and I often recommend it many others. However I’m not impressed with the new packaging-although I’m thrilled that it’s now recyclable, however I find it very faffy trying to decant (it’s like toothpaste tube!) the lid is also fiddly opening and replacing back on. The older packaging as a pump action was so much easier and more convenient to use by all in the family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results Have used Liz Earle gentle face exfoliator for many years. Usually use once a week, easy to use and leaves my skin feeling smooth.
Date published: 2022-02-10
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Packaging change I've used this product for years and love it. Recently the packaging has changed and I'm not impressed. The tube often spills more out afterwards and I feel its wasteful as I have the amount needed and now dont know what to with excess as cant get it to suck back into the tube. Also the tube doesn't look as nice after a while as all creased but thankfully it lives in the drawer and not out on 'display'. Much preferred old pump style packaging. Product is still great though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best exfoliate EVER! Fantastic product. Smells gorgeous, not too scratchy, large tube so lasts forever. What’s not to love …!
Date published: 2022-02-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works superbly Does exactly what it should, gentle exfoliation with superb results. I use once a week now , which is sufficient for me.
Date published: 2022-02-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best exfoliator for me This is so gentle on my skin, I use it twice a week just to keep my complexion clear and have been using this product for quite a few years now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great exfoliator but new packaging not great! I have used this exfoliator on and off for many years and keep coming back to it as it’s gentle but really deep cleans and the best one I’ve used and smells great. That said packaging has changed from a pump to a tube and I have no idea why-it’s terrible! The lid doesn’t screw back on very well and takes several attempts. I would normally squirt it on my hand and then put the lid back on immediately but it’s such a faff and takes 2 hands as you have to ensure it’s totally level for it to screw back on. I hope they change it again soon to something better. This type of packaging is new to Liz Earle and I’m not a fan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best by fat ! A very gentle exfoliator and smells gorgeous. I bought it in the sale so a great bargain with free p&p
Date published: 2022-01-24
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Face Exfoliator I have bought this a few times as I do really like it and use it together with the cleanser. It might be my imagination but with the new packaging it seems different. Not as creamy as it was previously. I still like it but definitely something different about it.
Date published: 2022-01-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Used this for years now. Helps keep my breakouts at bay but isn’t harsh on the skin at all. Smells so lovely too, wouldn’t be without this product.

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
