Having received award winning Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanse a couple of Birthdays ago, it became a fast favourite of mine and has become a staple in my skincare routine. The eucalyptus element brings fantastic antiseptic qualities and does wonders fighting spots, while cocoa butter ensures softness. I love the natural exfoliation from the muslin cloth for thoroughly lifting any product residue. It’s one of the few cleansers I can use alone and be left with my face feeling properly clean afterwards, with no black-eye mascara remains scaring anyone the next morning! Also with all ingredients ethically & sustainably sourced, there is the feel good factor of skincare with a conscience. Priced at €18.75 it’s not too hard a hit in the wallet, however it can be a difficult one to source and if buying online you’re looking at a €7.75 delivery charge bumping it up to €26.50- this includes cleanser, two muslin clothes and a handy waterproof pouch to keep everything together.
In the run up to payday, there’s a super dupe in the form of Boots Botanics 97% Organic Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm. With the pocket money price-tag of €8.66, you’re guaranteed the same super clean face with a similar muslin cloth to gently and natural exfoliate. Rosehip and Jojoba oil ensure there’s a nourishing quality with omega oils for softness. Both use botanical plant extracts, both give a super clean finish and both come complete with muslin cloth for a natural exfoliation and guaranteed deep clean. I’m a bit of a Liz Earle fan and love the minty eucalyptus scent, so Cleanse & Polish will remain a skincare staple for me although Boots Botanics 97% Organic Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm is a close second and great budget-friendly alternative. Have you tried either?
