Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser- Review & photos

During your facial in any beauty clinic, one thing that is usually common is that when they cleanse the face after massaging, always wipe the rest of the cream using a soft wet cloth dubbed in warm water and squeeze it before wiping the face. After this process, they dub the cloth in a chilled water, squeeze it and then wipe off again. I follow this way only when I clean my face after massaging at home and in my opinion, it’s the best way to wipe the face and far better than cleaning with cotton wool.
When I saw Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, I realized that this product is made keeping the same process in mind and after using it I found it to be the best cleanser I have ever used.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser
It's a cleanser with the same method I have mentioned above.

What it claims
We only make one cleanser because formulation is the ultimate in concentrated yet gentle cleansing power and works on every age and skin type. Our plant- based cleanser has a 2 phase action,
Phase 1 is the cleansing. Free from mineral oil, it has a rich and creamy texture and swiftly removes all traces of face and eye makeup, even stubborn mascara.
Phase 2 is the polishing. Polish off the cream using the pure muslin cloth to help gently dislodge dead skin cells and help reveal clean, soft and radiant skin. Use morning and night with pure muslin cloths to reveal fresh, radiant skin. Naturally active ingredients include eucalyptus and cocoa butter for smoother, clearer skin. Suitable for all skin types.

The muslin cloth and the pouch
The texture of this product is creamy but not at all greasy.

In the mirror of my own experience
After using this cleanser for the first time only, I realized its quality. Sometimes there are products that make us realize their specialty after the first use only. I have been using this cleanser twice a day for the past one month and I’m still doing so. The creamy texture, very smoothly spreads out onto the face and neck. After applying it, I give a gentle massage on the face and neck, after that I dip the muslin cloth in a bowl filled with hand warm water and after squeezing the cloth properly, I gently remove the cleanser off my face and neck. I dip the cloth two-three times in the water and act the same very softly & gently. Followed by this, I splash cold water on my face many times and then wipe it with a soft towel and apply a light moisturizer on my face.
As a makeup remover- I always remove my eye makeup with almond oil. It makes it quite easy for me. Then wash my face with a good face wash and dry my face with towel. After this, I apply this cleanser in the same way as I have mentioned above. Remove the rest of the makeup with the cloth very gently. It removes all the traces of makeup and makes the skin soft and supple. I always wash the cloth with a mild soap so that it remains clean and bacteria free. After a month's use, I have noticed a clear difference in my skin texture. My skin has become more soft and smooth than it was before using it. It has become an essential part of my skin care routine now. I just love this product♥♥♥
