Ahh, famous Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser. Do you know when you see a product on a blog again and again? Then it slowly starts to worm itself into your brain until you decide it’s something that you need? Something that will be the answer to all your skin problems and certainly-for-sure-without-doubt-I-assure-you will prevent all these nasty blemishes that keep popping up everywhere?
Well, that’s me and my relationship with Liz Earle.
I had been seeing a lot about hot cloth cleansers, specifically the Liz Earle Clean and Polish one.
As my current skin products were all coming to an end, I decided to treat myself and indulge in something a little more expensive that I usually would.
I bought the Liz Earle hot cloth cleanser, toner and a sample 15ml size of the moisturiser for £35.
Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser Review
The cleanser comes with 2 cloths. It’s recommended to wash them after 3 to 4 days of use.
The bottle comes with a pump, you use one pump and then rub it into your face, then you run the cloth under hot water and remove the product.
The product itself smells quite like menthol, a bit like eucalyptus – which I love the smell of. But it’s just not enough.
It kind of gives me that feeling when you’re trying to remember the name of an actor in a movie. You know their name is in your head, but can’t quite pluck it out. That’s what this smells like – it’s like a distant memory or something that you want to smell more of but can’t.
I can’t explain how this makes me feel. Help.
When I’ve removed the product, it doesn’t feel like I’ve just cleansed my face. It feels like I’ve put some cream on it and then washed it straight off again, it’s very bizarre.
My skin doesn’t really look or feel any better or worse for it.
It does remove my make-up and it’s okay at removing my mascara. But I wanted more. I expected more. It’s almost as disappointing as the Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream.
The toner and moisturiser give me the same feeling as the cleanser. They’re nice enough but just don’t give me a fresh-faced sensation that I like my products to give me.
I think it’s safe to say that I won’t be re-purchasing any more Liz Earle products in the future. I’m disappointed as I’ve heard lots of brilliant reviews about these products, but they didn’t work for me!
I have seen that Boots do a hot cloth cleanser, which I might try out next!
