Liz Earle

Birchbox Breakdown

This world-renowned two-part skincare system (seriously, it’'s won more than 100 beauty awards) has a major cult following. Try it once and you'’ll see why. Not only does it gently remove all traces of dirt, grime, and makeup (yes, even your waterproof, wear-all-day, no-flake mascara and eyeliner), it also sweeps away dulling dead skin cells for a gorg glow. The creamy cleanser contains moisturizing cocoa butter, and two of nature's best astringents: eucalyptus essential oil and rosemary. These plant oils lift dirt off the skin's surface without disrupting the natural barrier function. With the use of the brand's 100 percent cotton muslin cloth, skin is gently polished without irritation—perfect for even the most sensitive of complexions.

How to Use

Gently massage one to two pumps onto dry face and neck in circular motions. Run warm water over your muslin cloth (also available in our Shop), and sweep over face and neck to remove cleanser, dirt, grime, and oil. Once cleanser is fully removed, splash face with cool water.

Absolutely awesome!!
SampledPurchased

I have always had issues with acne & splotchy skin... Therefore, I have always used products labeled for "acne".... But once I began using this facial cleanser, the difference has been phenomenal! I have absolutely NEVER seen my skin so uniform and supple! Two very enthusiastic thumbs up!!!

Just okay

I've been dying to get this in my Birchbox and was ecstatic when I finally did. However, I think my expectations were too high because it turned out just okay. I wouldn't recommend this to people who love that "squeaky clean" feeling. You will feel like there is a layer of something on your skin, and it does not take off all makeup. I prefer to use a cleanser that takes off all makeup so I don't need to use a separate makeup remover. Lastly, I feel the need to constantly wash the cloth in the washing machine because your face oils/dirt/makeup gets trapped in there and rinsing just with water does not get it out. If you do like this cleanser, I'd recommend getting more than 1 cloth.

In Love

This cleansing system made my skin look great. After the first use, my pores were tiny/invisible and my skin tone looked even and healthy. Love this stuff!

I'll never use another face wash again
Sampled

this face wash/cream is the best I've ever used- especially at the reasonable price point. It takes off all my make up with ease and my face feels so soft (not dry!) when I rinse. Another added benefit is that unlike the face wash commercials, I can't happily splash my face with water without soaking my bathroom so the use of the muslin cloth is clutch. Just remember to wash the cloths!

Great winter cleanser
Sampled

I have sensitive combination skin, and in the winter I become a delightful mix of dried out and broken out. What I love about this cleanser (which I sampled and then purchased) is that it's a very gentle and effective exfoliating system but also very hydrating--perfect for fighting winter dullness.

Wasnt impressed
Sampled

Let me start by saying I have great skin and almost never get acne (maybe 2x per year I get 1 pimple). I also am very faithful to my morning and nightly face washing - I never skip. This product gave me white heads. It was very bizarre. I gave it a second chance and the same thing happened again - white heads. I was pretty disappointed because this product smells great and feels like lotion going on, silky smooth. Looks like others have had better luck than me.

Breakout
Purchased

I have never really had "problem" skin, but I am prone to sporadic dry skin because I use prescription tazorac gel. I thought that the Liz Earle cleanser would be perfect for me of the creamy texture. I started breaking out almost immediately after using this product. I know that skin sometimes takes a while to adjust to a new regimen, so I continued using this product. The breakouts never cleared, and I did not find it to be an effective makeup remover, unless I used the cleanser more that once. Once I stopped using this cleanser, the breakouts stopped and my skin cleared. A friend of mine who ordered this product had the same reaction.

OBSESSED!

I love love love this. I got the kit that came with: Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser; Skin Repair Moisturizer; Instant Boost Skin Tonic and Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion along with 2 muslin cloths. And I am obsessed! My skin hasn't looked this good in so long. I have stress acne and redness and this had been so good to my skin! This is now my go to product. I am so happy to have found this!!!!

Keeps my skin feeling great!

Most cleansers make my skin dry or too greasy. I live in S. FL and this is just not ok! I can't believe how smooth and moisturized this Cleanse and Polish makes my skin feel. I will be buying this soon!
