Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Review

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish

First impressions were rough. This stuff hurts my face. Makes it go all blotchy and red. Plus it stings. Initially I thought it was the vitamin C serum that I doshed on after but no, it is definitely the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish.

It does such a good job of cleansing though. Removes make up: mascara, the works. But makes my skin very angry in the process. And my skin is hardy. Not in the least bit sensitive. Weird. 

Interestingly, it does not irritate the eyes. I was anticipating it. Braced for the for sting. It has that vapour rub smell, you know? Eucalyptus. But no, that bit was fine. And my skin looks great the morning after I use it. Extra clean without feeling tight. Super soft and smooth, like I’ve used a treatment. Not red or blotchy.

So I’m keeping on. Which I appreciate might be a mistake. No pain, no gain? Or allergic reaction? Who knows.

    I had a horrid time with cleanse and polish too. It left my skin ridiculously dry, red and itchy. I’ve never had a reaction like this to any skincare, ever!
    I suppose not all skincare can suit everyone…

      I know it’s such a strange one! And I’m not sensitive at all. Though actually, my face got sort of used to it in the end, but I wouldn’t repurchase. H x
