I’ve been a long time user of Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish, I kind of jumped on the bandwagon when it was very big on the blogging scene and have used it ever since. However it is quite pricey at £14:00 for a 100ml bottle.
It always gives a good cleanse and leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh. The muslin cloth provided is nice and soft and there’s none of the mess of make up wipes or cotton pads. I have been known to have quite sensitive skin. Anything heavily fragranced or chemically sends my face an attractive shade of red. But this is super gentle and even though it has a light fragrance I’ve never had any trouble with it.
Liz Earle VS Superdrug
A couple of months ago however, I was having a browse in Superdrug and discovered the “Naturally Radiant” hot cloth cleanser which had a special offer on making it half price, for £3. After glancing at the box it looked like it had quite a few similarities to the Liz Earle C+P so I decided to buy it to see how I got on.
On first impression I noted that the muslin cloth that came with the cleanser wasn’t as soft as the Liz Earle offering. However when it came to the cleanser itself I was pleasantly surprised. Packaging aside it feels thick and a little goes a long way. It washes my make-up off with ease leaving minimal if any residue behind. It doesn’t aggravate my skin and keeps it looking calm and clean. Chuck on a bit of moisturiser afterwards and you’re good to go.
Overall I think it’s a fabulous alternative to C+P and at £5.99 for 150ml (even bigger than Liz Earle’s 100ml) it’s a bargain. I would totally recommend it to anyone looking to buy a hot cloth cleansing based product. Although I still treat myself and occasionally pull out the Cleanse and Polish, Superdrug’s offering has definitely made it into my main collection of everyday skincare products.
