Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser (Product 1 - Top 10 for 2010)

I've always wanted to try out Liz Earle products - it's a brand I've heard a lot about and was actually one of the reasons I thought it would be great to finally try out all these products that I've had my eye on for years but never got round to using. So it's fitting really that the first of my Top 10 for 2010 is a Liz Earle product - Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser.

First things first I wanted to know more about the brand itself. With a combined fascination for botanicals and natural remedies and unparalleled knowledge of beauty, natural health and well-being it would, I think, be difficult to find someone more qualified to be setting up a skincare range than Liz Earle. With over 30 books published and her own TV series under her belt she really knows what she's talking about and she has an MBE to prove it.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth CleanserIt's incredibly difficult testing out products like cleansers and moisturisers as whatever other products you are using will no doubt have an affect on the results. This was easier than most though as it sort manages to stand by itself. I have been removing the majority of my eye make-up with Vaseline and eye make-up remover on cotton wool before using this as instructed and using my usual moisturiser afterwards (Origins - A Perfect World).

Right so to the product itself. I'll admit I wasn't convinced at first - the cleanser itself is lovely and thick (I hate it when you get frothy non-events that are supposed to change your skin!) and the muslin cloths provided are just great. I suppose I was expecting an overnight miracle (and the fact that I've become obsessed with this thread vein on my face which is now all I can see doesn't help). However, after a couple of weeks of using this I am a real convert. This is supposed to be part of a three step routine but its actually fantastic on its own.

You smooth the cleanser over your dry face and neck and polish it off with the muslin cloth and hand warm water. So easy to use and it is the first product I can remember that seems to fully remove my make-up. Everything comes off, my skin is smooth afterwards and looks healthier. It actually does. I'm really impressed and although I have been moisturising afterwards for those of you without dry skin I doubt you'd even need to bother (not that I'd recommend that - I'm a big fan of moisturising).

So how does it work? Well it contains known skin soother cocoa butter, skin-brightening eucalyptus, and rosemary to stimulate circulation not only is this great for your skin but the essential oils and aromatic herbs also relax and lift your spirits so it's a real pampering experience. This particular Liz Earle product has got a huge following among make-up artists, supermodels and us normal people. It is sooo easy to use and really makes a difference - a great start to the years testing. For a 100ml pump with two pure double muslin cloths (the perfect starter pack I think) it's £12.75. Completely reasonable and if you love it you can get the 100ml pump on it's own for £11.25 available here xx
