Liz Earle | Rose and Lavender Cleanse & Polish


The main product that I want to mention and review is the Rose and Lavender Cleanse & Polish (launching on 6th September). I have been trying a couple more Liz Earle products recently so I've given them a quick review too. All Liz Earle products can be purchased from their website, Liz Earle Stores, John Lewis and on QVC.

Limited Edition Hot Cloth Cleanser
A firm favourite with beauty fans and bloggers is Liz Earle's Cleanse and Polish. You'll have read about it in the magazines or, like me, heard about the product through the blog grapevine. I've repurchased it 4 times now and I am honestly, 100% so happy to have given this product a chance because it has single-handedly improved my skin which has given me the confidence to try more make up, especially foundation and BB creams.

Now you can get a special edition version of Cleanse and Polish, which has been created in conjunction with The Prince's Trust. If I was to nit-pick about the original version, it would be that the scent is something I've had to get used to. As I've said before, it's not a bad smell and it doesn't linger but it's just not what I am used to in a skincare product. This limited edition one is a rose and lavender fragrance, and unfortunately, I don't know how long this is available for (I will find out and add the info to this post) but I'm going to be stocking up because I much prefer this one to the original.

The packaging design is lovely too, a nice change from the signature green. I will be buying this cleanser time and time again, and I hope there'll be further collaborations or expansion for new Cleanse and Polish products. The formula and consistency is the same as the original, it is thick and buttery, a complete joy to use.

With a few easy steps, you can remove all traces of make up, every day grime and heavy eye make up (including waterproof mascara) with one of two pumps of the product. I use it every single day since the beginning of the year, once in the morning and again at night. As you can see here, I'm a big fan and a customer for life! I know that a minority of people have had a little bit of a reaction, and it really does depend on how each person reacts to a certain product. My skin is normal/sensitive combination. 

This product is launched on the 6th September and it will retail at £19.75 for 150ml bottle. £2.00 of that is donated to The Prince's Trust which is an organisation that gives help and financial support to young people and entrepreneurs. Although I have not benefited from them, the Trust is an organisation that has helped a lot of my friends to set up their own businesses whether this is advice, start up capital or just a bit of motivation. They offer courses, grants and enterprise programmes to 14-25 year olds to help realise their hopes and dreams.

Brightening Treatment Mask
If you're anything like me, and you get a bit impatient at time when you've applied a face mask on and get antsy waiting for the 10-20 minute to pass by, then the Liz Earle Brightening Treatment Mask might interest you. There are a few mask treatments within the Liz Earle range but the latest one I've been trying is the Brightening Mask.

It's a purifying clay formula which brightens dull and lacklustre skin. This is not a product for sensitive skin, it's really fast-acting and a bit of a "quick-fix" to give the skin a pick-me-up. I thought that it was a good thing to leave face masks on for as long as possible but don't do that with this one!!!

It is not a deep cleansing treatment. I didn't know this at first and I left the mask on for approximately 5 minutes, longer than recommended and I was left with red blotches. When I used it correctly, but leaving the mask on my face for 30 seconds to 2 minutes, I found that it left my skin so smooth and prepped for make up. Foundation glided on like a dream and I found myself looking forward to using the mask again and again! 

You can really feel the mask working it's magic after 30 seconds, the slight tingling sensation is normal. Again, this product is not suitable for sensitive skin but if you check here, you will see which mask is suitable for your skin type. This is a great product, especially for those who don't have much time to wait around. The price starts from £5.25 for a 15ml tube, this includes a muslin cloth.

Lash Definition - Smudgeproof Mascara
I recently mentioned that I've yet to find the perfect mascara. I'm not loyal to any brand because I have short eye lashes and no matter what mascara I use, I don't feel like it makes much of a difference. My glasses have a lot to do with that, they hide a lot of effort I put in to my eyelashes! The lovely team at Liz Earle have sent me this mascara to try.

It is from their newly launched make up range and it's one out of two mascara products available. Like with most, it does make my lashes appear thicker and the application is easy and clump-free (nothing worse than spider legs!)

If you were after a mascara that will not budge, then I would recommend this! It's fairly difficult to remove so I know it's definitely, for sure, smudgeproof! I remove this with a face wipe and then get rid of the rest with the cleanse and polish. This comes in two shades; black or brown - and it is priced £14.50.
