There're products that come and go out of your life. And there're that just stay as long as you can find them on the market. Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser ($40 for 6.7 oz and also available in different sizes), together with Liz Earle Instant Boost Tonic Spritzer, has changed the life of my skin and how my makeup performs. In 2012, it was voted as the most revolutionary beauty product in the past 20 years by CEW (UK). The widely popular cleanser also receives numerous prestigious awards from the beauty industry insiders. It does work magic on my skin.
The most important benefit I seek for in a daily cleanser is to gently and thoroughly remove dirt, built-up grease and makeup left-over traces to keep it clean and prevent future heavy build-up. I got it all with Liz Earle plus it polishes my skin, and gives it a healthy glow canvas for the next products to glide on.
Liz Earle Cleanser comes with a cotton cloth but I've found my regular facial towel is also gentle enough to massage the cleanser against the skin. Note that it won't feather up like other cleansers. So it doesn't work well with skin care gadgets like Clarisonic. Here's how I use the cleanser.
#1. Apply it on the dry skin then take time to massage it into the skin. It won't produce any feathery bubble like regular cleanser. It feels more like a moisturizer instead.
#2. After the cleanser sets in just a little bit, I soak the cotton cloth or towel with hot water and gently rub it upward from my neck to the forehead.
#3. Squeeze out the water, repeat step 2 about twice more.
#4. Splash cold water on my face and slap it all over. Yes, you hear me right. I like to slap my face daily to increase the blood flow under the skin. It like giving my face a little massage.
#5. Let my face cool down and spay Liz Earle Instant Boost Toner Spritzer from my chest up and a bit on the back of the neck. And finish the rest of my skin care ritual.
My skin has become much smoother, more even and brighter. The darkspots and acne scars is blurring away. Yay!!! I still have pigmentation around my nose and sun spots to fight. But the texture of skin is soft and silky. My hubby was at awe the other day. No kidding! My skin feels like a baby's. And he's one of those who won't notice if I have a bob hair cut or a pony tail.
Of course, the cleanser by itself doesn't turn around my skin problems. But I do see the difference just after one week adding it to my routine.
How to and the ingredients. Sounds good right?
