Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser: Finally, I Get To Try It With ‘Em Muslin!

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser

After waxing lyrical about my newfound love for cleansing balms, lovely reader Hilary sent me a 30ml sample of the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser to try out. It even came with a muslin cloth that I don’t have for the Eve Lom and Antipodes cleansing balms. What a great way to try out the Liz Earle cleanser and use the muslin cloth with the other balms, eh?

The Liz Earle cleanser is different from the other cleansing balms I’ve tried. It’s actually a cream, which is much like a regular cleanser and smells deliciously minty. However, you cleanse your face with the cream as you would with the balms: massage the cream on dry skin, wet the muslin cloth in hot water, rinse the water out and place the cloth on the skin, pressing, massaging and then gently wipe the cream off the skin.

Just like the Eve Lom and Antipodes cleansing balms, this cleansed the gunk off my face very well. It didn’t irritate my skin but left it feeling soft. There’s no skin tightness nor that squeaky clean feeling. It’s pretty darn good cleansing cream!

The only thing I didn’t particularly enjoy was the muslin cloth. Even though it dried very quickly, I found it slightly scratchy on the skin. As it’s also a lot more porous than a face wash cloth, as soon as the hot cloth is on my skin, it cooled down very quickly. Me, I prefer it hot and stay hot for as long as I keep the cloth on my skin. So much more relaxing that way. :P

Instead of the muslin cloth, I’m sticking to a regular face towel which works so much better with these sort of cleansing balms and creams. Other than that, oh yeah, I’m definitely loving this Liz Earle cleanser.

Sadly, Liz Earle isn’t available in Australia so if you’re interested in getting this to try out, do check out their official website. A 100ml pump starter kit (comes with a muslin cloth) retails at £14.75. They also have smaller volume options. Even though they do ship internationally, a word of warning though, their shipping fees are high (£15 from the UK website, US$30 from the US website). Best to collaborate with other shoppers to share the fees. :)

What I like about it: Removes makeup well, leaves the skin soft and smooth, doesn’t irritate the skin or leave it tight and dry.

What I do not like about it: Not a fan of the thin muslin cloth, not easily available in Australia.

Have you tried this popular Liz Earle hot cloth cleanser? What did you think? Yay or nay?

Many thanks to Hilary for the chance to try this one out. You’re a star!

    I’ve seen a lot of hype about this cleanser lately so it was interesting to read your review! I haven’t tried it yet, but I can’t imagine a muslin cloth would be ideal for something like this… as you say, they cool down so quickly. Regular face cloths for life!

      Yeah, I’d much rather use regular wash clothes. Softer and kinder to the skin too!

    Yah, glad you liked it :D I feel like a proud Mum lol (should point out – I’m in no way affiliated or connected with Liz Earle, I just love the cleanser – the moisturizer is a different story (my skin hates it), but the cleanser and the intensive oil are some of my HG products to deal with my very difficult, getting older now, acne skin).

    And it goes to show, different strokes for different folks – I *love* the muslin cloth (like a good buffing on my elephant skin lol) and have loads and loads of them as every time I order from them I get another couple of packs of the clothes on top of the one you get when you order a cleanser :)

    With regards to the shipping – its a flat amount I believe no matter how big the order, so like you say, team up with others or place a big order at once – if you sign up to their emails they will email you (only a couple of times a year I think) when they have offers on – I’ve had some beautiful very good quality beach/tote bags and things off them as freebies and they do other sorts of freebies and offers too :) And its very quick shipping too – think it took something like 14 days door to door when we were living in an Indigenous Community 600km from the nearest town in the NT last year :)

    Glad you liked though :)

      Hahah thanks so much for letting me try this out! Yeah, I’ll definitely need to team up with people to get stuff from Liz Earle. Man, their shipping is expensive! It would be silly for me to get a couple of items and fork out $30 for shipping alone. I wonder who I can sucker into getting on board with me so that I can do halvsies on shipping fees with them? Tee hee hee!

      1. Hilary

        I’ll let you know when I’m doing an order next :P (Probably in a couple of months if you can wait that long, as I want the summer bag they tend to release, and obviously its not summer there for a bit yet) Will try to combine it with a trip to Melbourne, or with you coming over here as well so don’t have to ship it onwards :D

        1. Tine

          Aww thanks lovely! Btw, when you do come to Melb for a visit, remember to let me know. Coffee and all that is on me! x

    I haven’t heard about this brand in the US either. I like the sound of the minty scent/feeling of the product, however. And though the muslin didn’t work, I like a hot cloth on my face, too. I must have missed a couple of posts while I was traveling on biz last week. What is the difference between a cleansing cream and a cleansing balm? Haven’t heard of a cleansing balm!

      Haha I wrote about falling in love with cleansing balms here: This is the first time I’ve tried this sort of hot cloth cleansing creams but essentially, other than the texture, they work the same way. You use a hot cloth to wipe the cream/balm off instead of washing it off with water.

    This is my favourite cleanser. It removes everything and yet it is so gentle on the skin. I quite like the muslin cloth, but when I’m in a rush I just use the cleanser without it. It still works really well. :)

      Ahh good to know that you can use the cleanser without the muslin cloth. I’ll try it out tonight. :)

    I’m in complete love with the Emma Hardie balm cleanser, but had to cheat on it when I ran out and Feel Unique was out of stock… Got the Moogoo oil cleanser for combo skin instead and it’s a winner as well, loving oils and balms lately!

    1. Tine

      Oooh my next one to try is the Emma Hardie balm cleanser! Feel Unique had 15% off storewide a few days ago and I forgot to buy! :(

    i have used this cleanser and totally love it. in fact i love the muslin cloth as well!! it didn’t feel really scratchy on my skin. and, Tine, I have missed many of the posts in between so just wanted to clarify is this the new layout without any sidebar??? if yes, one ques, where do you put the ads? also, one more request, can you do a blogging post on monetization.

    1. Tine

      Hi Swati, if you’re viewing the blog on a smaller monitor with lower res or a tablet, then yes, the sidebar will be at the bottom of the page because this is a responsive theme. It does have a sidebar and the ad is still on above the fold.

      I’ve done a few posts on monetisation before. Mind telling me what about monetisation specifically that you’re interested in?
