Something I've noticed about the Liz Earle Naturally Active Skin Care brand is that whenever it's mentioned, the first thing people talk about is its Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser. Apparently I'm the only one who hasn't heard of this cult favorite, so as soon as I got the chance to skip out of the house, I went to pick some up.
It has been awarded many times including InStyle's 2007 Winner for Best Beauty Buys. Supermodels, socialites and beauty addicts alike are addicted to this creamy, soothing, almond milk cleanser that brightens and soothes all types of skin.
What makes it so incredible is the combination of the formula and the hot muslin cloth that you use along with the product. It gently wipes away all traces of makeup (even stubborn mascara) and because the cloth is gridded, it also works to exfoliate or "polish" the skin. The result is a hydrated and springy feeling as opposed to a dry tight feeling caused by many leading cleansers.
It is made from natural ingredients such as chamomile, hops, rosemary, panthenol, glycerin, beeswax, and eucalyptus oil to disinfect as well as soften and pamper the skin (the smell is amazing too). To use, just massage the cream over a dry face and neck, before removing with the hot, damp cloth. Finish with a final rinse of cold water to help tighten pores.
Cleanse & Polish is available in a 3.3 oz pump for $20 or in a 6.7 oz pump for $37.
