Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Review for Acne Skin

Does Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish help acne and spots?

Before taking Roaccutane,  I tried numerous brands and treatments to help with my acne. I  found Liz Earle Cleanser and Polish really helped my skin to be less angry or prevent regular acne cysts on my face.

My time spent at ELLE Magazine, as the online beauty & fashion assistant, meant that I certainly came across my fair share of face-washes and cleansers to test, but Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish has to be one of my favourite products of all time. I have tried a variety of other cleansers, a few months at a time, but I always come back to Liz for its rich and creamy texture.



What is Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish?

The product is plant-based with a two-phase action. Phase one is the cleansing and two is the polishing. The included muslin cloth, gently dislodges dead skin cells and helps reveal clean, soft and radiant skin.  If you are a beloved ‘face wipe user’ and tend to complain about having ‘bad’ skin, or dull skin, when rubbing the last trace of mascara around your face for ten minutes, then you only have yourself to blame. I personally believe face wipes and baby wipes are the worst to use on your delicate face, stripping it of all natural oils and are full of alcohol, that is harsh on your poor skin.

Removing makeup with Liz Earle, Cleanse and Polish is a breeze with its active “Ingredients of eucalyptus and cocoa butter”.

How to use cleanse and polish?

I wash in a morning with a muslin cloth (you get two in the starter kit), then the same again at night to remove my makeup. Sleeping in makeup is not just an old wife’s tale about it being horrendous for your skin.  It will lead to blemishes and cause bacteria to breed under your skin, and who wants that? No excuses, even drunk girls after a Saturday night can cleanse!

Being a massive germ-a-fobe, and the fact that I declared war on acne over a year ago, I use two muslin cloths at night to make sure I take my makeup off with one and then cleanse again with the clean one to make sure I am dirt and germ-free. I then pat (no rubbing as this spreads germs and irritates the skin) my face dry on a clean towel (do not use other peoples towels if you have acne as this will only make your face worse).

If you suffer from acne or even the odd blemish or two, small changes to your routine can make a big difference.


Personally, I always use my own face towel – never use it for hands, JUST for your face and definitely do not share it with anyone else. I do this with pillow cases and anything that could produce dirt and bacteria on my skin.



The Extras

Cleanse and Polish is absolutely the best value for money at £16.00. Men and women can both use it, and it’s great for any age. As you can tell, I cannot rate this product enough. Leeds is honoured to have one of Liz Earle’s flagship, stand-alone stores, so if you won’t take my word on what this product will do for you, their helpful staff will most definitely show you. They also offer an exclusive spa service upstairs, where you can have a 30- 90-minute signature facial ranging from £40 – £120. I had the signature facial here a few years ago and was one of the most relaxing facials I’ve ever had. The heated duvet quilt that covers you for the facial is undoubtedly my favourite part.
