Thirteen years ago when my mother and I moved house we discovered the joys of cable TV. Which, inevitably lead to the discovery of those random channels such as QVC, the ones you watch either as a joke or because you are drunk at 3am on a Sunday morning. Well, this wasn’t the case for us. OK! admittedly we may have been under the influence of a celebratory glass of champagne, but it ended up being a long lasting, happy relationship.
My mother and I are PROUD QVC viewers AND shoppers (!) and what got us hooked was the multi-award winning natural skincare range, Liz Earle. In 1995, Liz Earle and Kim Buckland, co-founded the range because they had difficulty finding products for their own skin types. Liz had extremely dry, sensitive, eczema-prone skin and Kim had a combination/oily, problem-prone complexion.
The one product from the range that neither of us can get enough of, K included, is Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser.
Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser is a deliciously rich and creamy concentrate, designed to gently remove daily dirt and grime. The formulation is perfect for all skin types and age. The active ingredients include the multitasking, cococa butter, which softens, smooths and moisturizes the skin. Rosemary, chamomile hops and eucalyptus tone, soothe and purify.
Because, I cherish the product so much, I try to save it. Therefore, I generally use it to pamper myself. It is ideal for use after a late night, as it leaves skin feeling like it has had 8 hours sleep. It instantly rehydrates dry skin, without leaving it oily. Cleanse & Polish is a brilliant makeup remover and even takes away stubborn mascara.
Use this product daily and you will see why everyone raves it about it. You simply just have to try it. The scent alone will have you hooked!
Below, Liz Earle outlines her 3 steps to beautiful skin.
‘If you don’t do anything else for your skin, cleanse, tone and moisturise with these daily essentials twice a day.’
Step 1: Cleanse
First, this super-quick 2 phase system deeply cleanses to remove daily grime. Then the pure muslin cloth gently polishes to leave skin soft, smooth and radiant.
