£14.25 for a starter pack inc. 100ml bottle of product + 2 muslin cloths.
Before becoming interested in the world of beauty blogging and seeing all the rave reviews about this product, Liz Earle was a brand that had never crossed my radar. However, upon purchasing this I can safely say I'm in love! From the packaging to the product, I havn't been disappointed and think it is worth the money.
Due to my skin type being oily/combination I was worried that this product would make me break out or become more oily due to the thick creamy consistency of the cleanser, however it has actually done the opposite and so I think it would be suitable for all skin types. After using this, I can see that my skin has more of an even skin tone and feels fresh and really soft. It contains rosemary, chamomile, cocoa butter and eucalyptus essential oil, giving the product a herbal scent (a bit like Vicks in my opinion) and also what gives my skin its lovely soft feeling afterwards.
One pump is enough for my whole face, and I massage it in circular motions finishing with my eyes because otherwise make up residue goes everywhere! I love that this cleanser is a multi tasker and cleanses my skin effectively as well as taking off my make up. I was a bit skeptical of this at first but when I used my toner afterwards, which I apply with a cotton wool pad, there was no make up residue on the pad showing the cleanser had done its job well.
As it is a two stage product, with the first being the cleansing when you massage it around your face, the second is the 'polish' with the muslin cloths. These give your skin a deep clean without feeling too rough or harsh and effectively more all signs of make up and daily grime. I usually change my cloth after every few uses otherwise it kinda defeats the point of washing your face if you are doing it with a bacteria ridden cloth! As you get two cloths in the starter pack I would advise buying a couple more - you can get packs of 2 for £4 from John Lewis.
Another plus point for me is the packaging - it has a nice clean and sophisticated feeling and I really like the colours they have chosen, the pump action and the little bag the starter pack came in. The only thing I would change is maybe including a little see through bar so you can see how much product is left because I'm worried I will run out and not realise until I go to use it.
Overall, I think it is pretty obvious I am smitten with this product and it is probably a bit sad to say but I look forward to using this in the evenings! I would definitely repurchase this when I use it up, but I am also interested in comparing it to the Soap and Glory Hot Cloth Cleanser and also their Peaches and Clean. I think Liz Earle deserve the hype and am interested in trying some of their other products, which is made easy as if you go on their website they suggest products suited to your needs.
Have you tried this product and what do you think of it? Do you have any other Liz Earle recommendations? xxx
