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, Humulus lupulus (hops) extract, Rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract, Anthemis nobilis (chamomile) flower extract, Phenoxyethanol, Panthenol, Benzoic acid, Ethylhexylglycerin, Dehydroacetic acid, Sodium hydroxide, Limonene, Citric acid.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very dissatisfied Bought the hot cloth cleanser assuming there would be a cloth with the product. At 15.50 a bottle you would think a cloth would be provided, no mention of buying additional cloths for the product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only for the girls? I used to think that products like Cleanse and Polish were for the girls - but not any more! My wife bought it for me - I put it off - but once I started to use it I can’t stop. Before, after I’d washed my face, it soon began to feel oily or greasy - so I’d wash it regularly through the day and it became sore… After cleanse and polish my skin feels clean and fresh for the whole day. Not just for the girls!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good cleanser Purchased for my son…skin feels thoroughly cleansed A pleasure to use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product but why no cloths? The cleanser is great but as a first time user I didn’t know I needed to buy the cloths separately. It’s a bit disappointing. If you can’t user the cleaner without them why sell it in its own?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from spotless first time i have used this product, i am very impressed with it. I have used it for a month with great results so far, so decided to come back for more. From a mans point of view, it has helped me personally, with great results, so many thanks for that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I have been using this for 10 years an excellent product would look forward to a bigger dispenser (200ml) like the womans cleanse and polish
Date published: 2021-06-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is amazing. I tried Liz Earle not expecting to be so amazed by the products!! The face and body wash is incredible, it leaves me clean, my skin feels moisturised and healthy and the smell is amazing!!. The price is reasonable as you only need a small amount on a sponge or scrunchie. Using the face and body wash has led to me trying other Liz Earle skin care products and I'm finding all of them 100% perfect for me!!. The mens products are great but to be honest I would describe most of the products as unisex.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I bought this for my sons as they first started using my cleanse and polish and loved it so I now get them the one for men. It’s the best cleansing product around and 100% has assisted with their outbursts of spots. Would definitely recommend....
Date published: 2019-12-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality products! I've been using this product for over 10 years. This and the moisturiser are the only products that haven't reacted with my skin, and I've tried many brands. I've been using Liz Earle in total for over 20 years!
Date published: 2019-10-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for teenagers I bought this for my 14 year old son who has suffered from teenage spots and flare ups for around a year. He has been using other skin cleansers but with limited effect. Having read other reviews I persuaded him to give this a go for 3 weeks to see if it made a difference to his skin - I am amazed that only one week in we can both already see a significant improvement and are really impressed with the results. I would definitely recommend.
Date published: 2018-11-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Iv been using this whole family of products and never disappoints, well woth a try for any skin types, the product is easy to apply and wipes away leaving your skin soft and smooth, in most cases I don't use any moisturiser! Big thumbs up!
Date published: 2017-02-21
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good - Varied Results I have struggled with acne for a while now and I feel as though I have tried everything out there! This product was recommended to me and it has been ok since I have started, I have been using it for around 6 weeks and some weeks my skin has been great, others I have seen spots come back. Not sure why my skin has fluctuated so much as I have kept to the same routine throughout the past 6 weeks. If anyone has any suggestions that would be great. Great price and I think the most natural skin product you can actually get.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A revelation! This face wash is nothing short of a revelation. It smells amazing and I love the recommended way of applying it to dry skin, massaging it in, then removing it with a warm, damp muslin cloth. Especially at night when I can't be bothered washing my face and usually end up grabbing one of my wife's disposable face wipes instead. Not any more. My skin feels fresh and looks fantastic (according to my wife). I'm totally hooked on this glorious cleanser now. It's superb.
Date published: 2016-11-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great, easy-to-use product for gents. This is the first face-wash-type product that my husband has liked! He is impressed with the 'hot cloth' method of use and he also likes the smell.
Date published: 2016-06-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A mans opinion My Husband aged 72 has never bothered with his skin care before after trying he is completely hooked!
Date published: 2016-06-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! After using the women's version myself & buying it for my teenage daughter, I realised when my 10 year old boy started getting breakouts - this would be just the thing! I wasn't disappointed! It has really improved his skin & he loves using it. I think it's a good thing to get our children in to good skin habits, Liz Earl products are so kind to the skin it's gentle enough for our younger ones too!

Hi - Does the Men’s cleanse and polish not come with the cloth?

Asked by: Lrobertson
Hi there, thanks for getting in touch. Our Mens Cleanse & Polish is available purchase as a stand alone item, and the Pure Cotton Cloths do not come as standard. However, they are available to purchase separately. I do hope this helps! - The Liz Earle Beauty Co. Team

What age can this be used from? My son is almost 11 and starting to get the odd breakout. I'd like to get him into a good routine to help minimise them, but unsure if this would be suitable for him, or if I'm best to stick with the original?

Asked by: Kirsty89
Hi there, thanks for getting in touch. Both our original Cleanse & Polish and our men’s edition offer the same experience and both deliver visible results. There are some minor differences in the formulation however these don’t affect the way the product works and you will get the same great results from either product. We do hope this helps. - The Liz Earle Beauty Co. Team

Could the pure cotton facecloth be used instead of the muslin cloth? I bought the men’s version but, sadly, no cloth.

Asked by: Mishlmart
Hi, thanks for getting in touch! For best results, we would recommend removing our Cleanse & Polish with the pure cotton cloth, as the cloth helps to remove dead skin cells, keeping your skin clean and clear. Our Men's Cleanse & Polish is available to purchase with our without cloths, as we are aware that some customers don't wish to have the cloths every time they purchase our cleanser. I hope this information helps however, if you do require any further assistance, please reach out to our Customer Centre by calling 01983 813913 or email
