Pro-Biotic Balancing Milk Cleanser


About this cleanser

Protects and strengthens skin’s moisture barrier for visibly healthier-looking skin. This ultra-gentle, milky cleanser effectively cleanses without stripping skin’s goodness, leaving even the most dry, sensitive, and reactive-feeling skin looking calmer, clearer and healthier.


With our unique blend of nutrient-rich pre, pro and postbiotics, this kind-to-the-skin formula effortlessly melts away impurities, pollution and make up while strengthening skin's moisture barrier for a nourished, soothed, healthy-looking glow.


Powered by ingredients expertly selected for their efficacy, including chicory, lunaria oil, jojoba oil and oat extract.


We recommend rinsing off your cleanser with warm water, no pure cotton cloth required.


Strengthens the moisture barrier to dramatically improve the look of dry, sensitive skin in 7 days​*


Whilst our Pro-Biotic range is free from synthetic fragrance, you may notice a slight ‘oat-like’ scent. This is simply the natural scent of our powerful naturally active ingredients.


Dermatologically tested.

Pro-Biotic Cleanser The Results


(Cichorium intybus)

Sustainably grown on an organic farm in France, chicory is a natural prebiotic with skin-soothing properties. It has been used as a traditional herbal remedy for both skin and digestive health for hundreds of years.


(Simmondsia chinensis)

One of the skin’s most naturally compatible oils, jojoba promotes a healthy-looking glow without clogging pores. The jojoba shrub we source is native to the Sonoran Desert in the US, and Patagonian Desert in Argentina.


(Lunaria annua)

Lunaria oil is naturally rich in skin-compatible fatty acids, and is known to nourish and provide long-lasting hydration. Our lunaria is grown on 2 farms in Lincolnshire & Essex and is recognised by the Royal Horticultural Society for benefitting local insect populations.

Oat Extract

(Avena sativa)

Sustainably grown in Sweden and Finland, the oats we use are specially selected for their higher levels of Beta Glucan, a fibre known to help soothe and improve the appearance of skin. Our oats are fermented to produce a unique strain of Lactobacillus (friendly bacteria).

Aqua (water), Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, Glyceryl stearate citrate, Hydrogenated vegetable oil, Cetearyl alcohol, Coco-caprylate/caprate, Propanediol, Lunaria annua seed oil, Avena sativa kernel flour, Squalane, Cichorium intybus root extract, Sphingomonas ferment extract, Avena sativa (oat) kernel extract, Lactobacillus ferment, Helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, Cetearyl glucoside, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl glycol, Sodium stearoyl glutamate, Sodium gluconate, Sodium benzoate, Sodium hydroxide, Citric acid, Potassium sorbate, Tocopherol (vitamin E).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great cleanser but…….. I have used Liz Earle products for years and they have always worked well for me, this cleanser also works for me, it easily removes make up and my skin, which is dry, is left soft and clean but sadly the smell puts me off and find that I hold my breath when its by my nose as it smells like rotting grass, which is not nice when I am used to beautiful vanilla or lavender. Ive got 2 tubes that I will use up but then back to clean & polish.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A little disappointing Sadly not a great product. Although it removes makeup well it has a very unpleasant smell. The product goes on well but left my normal/dry skin with a slight stinging sensation and tightness. I wouldn’t buy it again. Which is a shame as I’ve been waiting for an alternative to the cleanse and polish product for ages.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unfortunately, not for me After the first day of using this range, my skin became spotty and dry. It obviously just doesn’t suit my skin., which is weird as my skin is fairly sensitive. I tried for 3 more days to ‘give it ago’. Shame. The Alt range however is fantastic, so back to that. Sorry, I hated giving it a negative review.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not sure about the smell Am sure it is a good cleanser but only used it once and the smell put me off using it again. I’ll try and use up what I have but won’t buy any more unless the smell improves. Positives are it’s a nice texture.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice texture. Not sure about the smell. Really lovely texture. Feels very soothing on stressed skin. Not keen on the scent. I do miss the lovely Liz Earle fragrances with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skin soft as silk I have only just started using this I normally use cleanse and polish and have done for over 10 years however this little beauty has now become my firm favourite. My skin texture has changed over time and this leaves it smooth and silky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product! I bought this product for my aging skin and my daughter's oily skin. It has worked on both skin types. My skin is softer and therefore its easier to apply make up and my daughters is more balanced, less oily and easier to apply make up. This is a beautiful product thick and creamy that gives good results.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good As the formulae has changed on the original cleanser and no longer serves my skin, I thought i'd try this. It's quite drying and doesn't do anything, also disgusted at the size of the bottle. It's more expensive that the cleanse and polish and at half the size too, paying more for less. What has happened to Liz Earle :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Product Used cleanse and polish for about 10 years now, but so glad I decided to try this beauty, didn’t leave my skin feeling tight and dry. You only need a small amount. Not a big fan of the smell though but it wouldn’t put me off using it and I’ve bought more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for sensitive skin This whole range is amazing for my sensitive, fair skin. I could never use cleanse and polish because of rosacea but this range is transforming my red prone skin. Thank you !!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for me. Really did not like this cleanser. You cannot not use on eye area and made my face sore

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good I bought this last week and so far so good! I especially love the cleanser in this range as it works great to remove make up and a little goes a long way. The range works well together and both moisturisers feel lovely/ sink in to the skin well. I suffer with occasional p dermatitis and it definitely seems to sooth this for me. The only downside for me is the size of the moisturisers for the price (if you were to pay in full) I would expect larger sized bottles for these prices.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not for me, unfortunately I have developed spider veins on my face post menopause and I have always had super sensitive skin. I thought this new range was worth a try to see if could help, although I love C&P and Superskin Unscented. I gave it a try for a few days but I really missed that C&P feeling - you know, that deep indrawn breath, that aahhhh- and the moisturisers, I'm afraid, were not a patch on Superskin. On the plus side, my granddaughter has very happily taken them off me and they have helped her more oily, acne prone skin enormously.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful cleanser for sensitive skin! At the age of 62 I have finally found a cleanser that suits of delicate and sensitive skin! When I was young, every brand I tried gave me spots! I grew older and every brand made my skin sore, dry, itchy, red! I passed the menopause and every brand I tried made my skin react, redness, soreness, dry patches! I had simply given up and stopped cleansing! I received a Liz Earle email recently announcing the Pro-biotic range and thought “why not try it”? Well what a revelation it has been….. no dryness or redness after using. My skin looks brighter, more even toned, feels softer and looks so much healthier. And that is just after a few days usage. To say I am delighted is an understatement! I will also review the Pro-biotic Balancing Night Cream soon. Meanwhile hoping someone will buy me the Day Cream for Christmas!
