There’s no way that you have never heard of this cleanser. The Liz Earle hot cloth cleanser is famous, but this review is brutally honest. It’s been raved about for many years by beauty gurus and skincare enthusiasts, is it worth the hype?
The Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser has become a cult product for many but will this review show similar opinions from me? It’s promise to reveal radiant skin has seemed to work for so many. In this post, I’ll be giving you all the low down on my true opinions of this much-loved cleanser.
I purchased this product quite a while ago. Since then I began to use it every night to remove my makeup, following the instructions on the packaging. It’s quite simple and self-explanatory: massage the cleanser into the skin and use the cloth to wipe it off.
Honestly, I actually really enjoy using this product. It’s really creamy and does remove my makeup very well. This product was impressive on first impressions, and although it does make my face feel clean, I still double cleanse as I did before just to ensure that every last trace of makeup is off of my face.
The pump is also a good aspect. It pumps out just the right amount and seems pretty sturdy. I hate those pumps that seem like they could break at any time! I feel like this though could be part of the price, £17 for 100ml. It’s not the priciest I’ve seen for a cleanser but it’s enough to burn a hole in your pocket!
Now, one thing I really don’t like about this product was the scent, it’s made with very natural ingredients and this has given it a sort of herby scent? That’s the only way I can describe it; I must say that I’m not the biggest fan! It isn’t an unbearably disgusting scent, it just really isn’t one that I find pleasant. After time however, you can adjust to it.
I also don’t really think that it changed my skin too much either. It’s perfect for removing makeup, though I haven’t found my skin to be clearer through using it. It hasn’t caused me to break out but I also didn’t receive that radiant skin that I had been promised. This was a slight let down.
I’ve been using this every night for two months so I could let it have its full effect. After the two months, there isn’t a difference to my skin. It may seem like it’s not a bad thing but my skin wasn’t very clear to start off with and although it didn’t make it worse, it would have been nice to have seen a positive effect rather than no effect. This may just be me picking faults, it may be the cleanser you’ve been waiting for!
I’d say it’s for all skin types, my skin is oily and it worked well enough for me but it also contains cocoa butter which makes it nourishing and appropriate for dry-skinned people too- this may be why so many people love it, because it’s suitable for everyone so more buyers and more lovers!
As for the cloth, it feels good against the skin and obviously the texture allows for gentle exfoliation, I however, prefer to use a makeup removing cloth. You may have also seen these on Instagram, they’re a soft fluffy cloth that only requires water to remove your makeup; I figured that if it works with just water then it’ll work even better with a makeup removing cleanser! I prefer to use these since they’re softer on the skin and doesn’t tug it which can cause early wrinkles which is what many try to avoid!
Overall, I’d recommend this cleanser as it really does make your skin feel clean and soft though I disagree with the claims of smoother, more radiant skin.
I wouldn’t say it’s ridiculously expensive and if you wear heavier makeup then it’s definitely something you should invest in! I can see why it’s at cult status but it doesn’t quite live up to the hype for me!
