Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser

Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser Review

Liz Earle, advocates for naturally active skincare, have developed this 2-step facial cleanser to promote cleaner skin. By applying the product to dry skin, this creates an exfoliating effect, which is then removed in a polishing motion using a muslin cloth.
This particular product is renowned throughout the beauty industry as being a go-to skincare essential, so I decided to put it to the test.

Product: ‘Cleanse and Polish’ Hot Cloth Cleanser
Brand: Liz Earle
Buy it from:
Tester’s skin type: Combination skin (oily t-zone with dry patches)

Eco credentials

Founded in 1995, the brand strives to maintain its values through high quality ingredients, responsible sourcing, no animal testing and no animal ingredients.

Liz Earle Hot Cloth CleanserSmell and texture

The smell is incredibly refreshing, with a pleasant eucalyptus aroma as soon as you apply it to skin. It also contains rosemary, chamomile and cocoa butter; notes of which become more evident with further use. The product itself is creamy, but then foams as water is applied. Altogether, it’s a pleasure to use.


Ease of use

Thanks to detailed instructions, the cleanser is very easy to apply. Once the cream is applied to dry skin, you use a wet muslin cloth (included) to gently massage the cream off. Cold water can then be used to remove any remaining excess and to close the pores.



I can certainly see why this product has received such glowing reviews. The cleaning action feels skin-deep, and my skin looks and feels revitalized after use. It doesn’t seem to have made a dramatic difference to my skin, however with continued use this could well change.
If you’re after a simple, fuss-free morning routine to freshen up tired skin, then I’d definitely recommend this product. However if, like me, you’re used to the traditional 3-step skincare regime, I’d stick with a conventional cleanser.
