I honestly don't understand the hype. I like the product and the cloth technique but it doesn't wow me.
When I bought it (in summer) I didn't like the buttery texture but I find that it works a lot better during winter when my skin turns from combination-oily to dry. It feels moisturising and doesn't strip the oil out of my face but leave it quite clean.
I do like the subtle fragrance of it and although it does a poor job with my waterproof mascara it doesn't irritate at all my skin or eyes.
I think I might try other Liz Earle products but I wound't repurchase as I'm sure I can find something similar and cheaper. Having said that I don't think the product is expensive as it lasts a while and the packaging is quite nice.

I was unsure a product like this would work for my acne prone skin, I'd seen how rich this looked on TV and that initially put me off.
However I took a chance as my skin was looking pretty bad at the time so it couldn't of got much worse and my natural olive soap was drying me out.
After using this I really like this product, it doesn't dry out my skin, it removes all makeup and generally the condition of my skin looks much healthier and smoother.
I luckily don't seem to get breakouts from this product but I do make sure that when finished removing with the cloth that I rinse my face well to remove any last trace of product.
Despite the mild exfoliation with the cloth this does nothing for my blackheads which is a shame but didn't quite expect it to.
Pros: Doesn't dry out skin, Seems to help with skin texture slightly
Cons: Slightly expensive, can't see how much product is left in the bottle, does nothing for blackheads

I am only writing this review as I scanned makeup alley often for advice on what other acne sufferers said helped them, and I would like to advise others.
Since using this product (along with the toner and moisturiser in the Liz Earle range) my skin has got a lot better. Before using it I was waking up daily with a huge spot and was worried I would have to go back on Roaccutane which I took when my acne got really severe around 4 years ago.
This might not work for everyone, but it has really helped my skin.

Words cannot describe how much I love this cleanser! I suffer from very dry skin, especially in the winter months so I decided to treat myself to this Christmas time and I haven't looked back or regretted it for a second! My skin is definitely looking and feeling healthier since I've used this. After I've used it my skin feels so fresh and so relaxed - as bizzarre as that sounds. My only negative is the fact that it only comes with two muslin cloths, so after a day I have to use flannels until I've put a wash through. I love the idea of the muslin cloths but I don't really want to go out and buy more. I would 100% recommend this to anyone particularly those with dry skin. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

I didn't like this when i first bought it but I realize it's an excellent cleanser in the colder weather when my skin is dryer and needs to keep its moisture. I have combo skin that only really gets dry in the winter.
In my LE order I also bought the oil which wasn't as good for my skin and definitely broke me out but once I tried this again in the colder weather i was VERY happy with it. It doesn't dry out my skin like my usual cetaphil. I've been using cetaphil exclusively for the last couple of years. Cleanse and Polish is the first I've deviated. One 200ml tube has lasted me a quite a long time. Will likely buy it again.

I use more so as a make up remover rather than a cleanser simply because it removes EVERYTHING! There is not one tiny little trace of makeup at all left on my face after I cleanse with .
I don't use it just as a cleanser because i like having lots of water and cleansers that lather up or have exfoliating beads on my face.
I don't bother with the Liz Earl muslin cloths because you can purchase a 10 pack of muslin cloths from a local supermarket for cheaper.

This probably gets a 2.5 from me. I just don't think it's quite right for my skin which is prone to clogged pores and hormonal breakouts - I feel the buttery texture might be contributing to an excess of congestion, and if not making my breakouts worse, it's obviously doing nothing to help them. It might be worth a try for those with dry skin - though I must note that it did nothing for my occasional dehydration/flaking. I do like the cloth method of cleansing though - I think I will keep using my cloth, but definitely with a different cleanser! Can't wait to finish this - it seems to be everlasting!!!

Firstly, I love the packaging and infact the branding of Liz Earle products across the board. They look and feel sophisticated yet understated which I really like.
The product itself really is fantastic. The product glides well onto the skin and manages to dissolve make up with ease. Now here comes the clever part...the residue can be carefully and kindly soaked up and wiped away using the warm muslin cloth, which when massaged acts to also exfoliate the skin leaving you with a beautiful, soft and smooth skin surface.
Overall, this is an amazing product and would definitely feature towards the top of any 'desert island' wish list! I do feel for a cleaner it is a tad on the expensive side, but the quality of the product definitely justifies the price tag.

My grandma swears by Cleanse and Polish, so she bought the massive 200ml tube for me for chirstmas. Boy am I glad she did! I use a make-up wipe to remove my mascara as it can get a bit messy, but it removes my face make-up like a dream! As i have oily skin, my face looked a bit dull but this really feels like its de-slicking my face without being stripping gives it a lovely glow. I've been having a few break out due to pigging out over the Christmas period and its definitely helping them go away faster. Id say this is great for all skin types, as i said my Grandma uses it and she has mature, dry and very sensitive skin and she loves it! Well done Liz :)

I wanted to love this. I really did. It just didn't do anything whatsoever for my skin. I tried so hard to see any difference to my skin, but no. Nothing. If anything, it made my oil production slightly worse. I also hated the texture and how it kind of sinks in to your face, it made me cringe and I could just feel it clogging up all my pores. Luckily, I only purchased a 30ml bottle and I stopped using it before it did anything worse to my skin. SO disappointing!
