DAILY DECEMBER #9 // Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish - review

Even though it's December I still want to do usual blog stuff here on The Lilac Scrapbook, so today is a review of one of those staple items in every beauty-lover's bathroom cupboard: the Hot Cloth Cleanse and Polish by Liz Earle.

The packaging of the product is a winner; I think it looks classy and you can tell it's high end, plus it matches the colour scheme of our bathroom which is always a winner! The products itself actually feels really nice on my skin, but other than that I don't really like it. Unpopular opinion I know...

I tried this product solely because my gran got a sample of it, and after seeing the ongoing hype around it I decided not to let it go to waste! On first impressions I thought it as okay; it didn't do an amazing job of getting all my make up off in one - it left patches of foundation between my eyebrows and around my nose, so I had to scrub quite a bit. I also didn't like the feeling of the muslin cloth, which is why there's a flannel in the picture, as that's what I always use with cleansers now!

The worst part of this product was that it completely broke me out, which was so annoying because I wanted to love it like everyone else did. Bear in mind I do suffer from acne so it might be alright for you, but I'd suggest trying a sample before spending all that money. It has prompted me to try various other cleansers like The Body Shop camomile cleansing butter, which I love and will be posting about shortly!

I hope you're still enjoying Daily December! Let me know if you have any post-requests for next year so I can get one step ahead of myself which it comes to being organised.

  1. Ooh, I'd never heard of Cleanse and Polish breaking people out before! It's such a cult favourite on YouTube and even one of my best friends swears by it - may have to try hers before buying my own, just in case!
