When ever I see a new hot cloth cleanser hit the beauty stands I always say to myself 'I wonder if it's as good as my Liz Earle?'
Hands down my cleanser from Liz Earle is my ultimate favourite, but I like to try new things. So I thought I'd give this cheaper version from Superdrug a whirl.
At £4.99 this cleanser is peanuts compared to Liz and other brands. I was skeptical about trying it at first as I didn't believe anything could live up to my beloved Liz. Sadly I was correct with my gut feeling. Let me explain...
Even though this is a nice product and the bonus is it comes with its own muslin cloth (a good quality one too I might add), I feel like I need to cleanser more than once to remove all the dirt and grime from the day.
LE removes everything in one sweep but with this I've sometimes had to apply and reapply three times... which is quite a hand full. Even after that I don't feel like I'm completely cleansed. The small print says this provides a gentle exfoliation to the skin, but I do not think so personally. The only exfoliation you get is from the muslin cloth when you remove the product from the face.
Resembling LE in consistency, the white cream to me smells more like a moisturiser than a cleanser. It is a little off putting. You are also advised not to use this around the eyes, I have done and it has been fine. But I find this struggles to remove mascara and eye liner, even if it isn't waterproof.
I'd personally recommend this to someone who likes to wear light makeup, like a powder and minimal eye makeup. But if you are someone like me who likes three coats of mascara, eye liner and a long lasting foundation... you may struggle to remove it from your face with this product. I would however recommend this for morning cleansing, where you've worn no makeup... so it is cleaning a 'clean' face.
So on that note once this has finished, I wouldn't repurchase :-( *sigh* Can you recommend any nice cleansers that do the job well?
