Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish | 20 Years of Botanical Brilliance

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Beauty Trio

It has been just under two years since I first tried out the iconic Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser. Back when I first started writing about beauty it was probably the most discussed product when it came to skincare and yet still to this day it remains to be one of my favourite cleansers for both morning and night. Whilst my skin has never been the most sensitive (although it sure has had its moments in the past) this has always been a product that I can turn to when I need something simple and calming for my skin; it is a product I can trust which is why I keep on going back to it. You can read my review of the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser that I did back in 2013 if you want to know more about the product itself, however today I wanted to focus on a slight twist to this cult classic.

The reason behind this post today is to share with you the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Beauty Trio which has recently been launched in order to celebrate 20 years of this wonderful botanical brand. The Cleanse and Polish Beauty Trio comes safely packaged within a special 20th Anniversary keepsake tin which I think is rather nice as it adds something extra special to the product; I'll be using this to store samples in I think once it has fulfilled its purpose of housing my collection of Cleanse and Polish.

The Beauty Trio set consists of three limited edition hot cloth cleansers which all have different scents. The first one is Grapefruit and Patchouli which is a scent that I think will be nice for the summer, whereas in contrast to this the second one, Rose and Lavender is a scent which to me sounds as if it will be nicer as we head into the colder months, although let's not think about winter just yet! Finally there is also Orange Flower and Chamomile which is again another scent which I think would be nice for this time of year. Seeing as my set only arrived a few days ago I haven't yet tried any of these for myself, the reason for that is because I don't like opening products too early, especially when I have so many others on the go. 

In the past I had either missed out on these limited edition scents or had refrained from purchasing at the time of their release, where in doing so I had always presumed that my opportunity to try them had passed. You can imagine how delighted I was when I saw this set starting to crop up on a few of my favourite blogs over the last month or so as I knew it would be one that I'd be putting into my online basket as soon as I could. Retailing at £50 this is quite an expensive purchase however I was very lucky in that I managed to pick mine up for £35 whilst Liz Earle were running a special promotion around a week ago. 

I wasn't too sure whether to feature this set so soon after it arriving, especially when I haven't tried them just yet however it's nice to share things with you that are still available to buy as opposed to posting this in three month's time when it may have already sold out. Whilst these new scents are new to me there is no denying that I quite simply adore the original Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish, it has been a product which I have repurchased several times in the past therefore it is one that I whole heartedly believe in from my own personal experience.

Have you tried any of the limited edition Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish?


  1. I love this collection! The new scents sound amazing. x


  2. Ohh this collection looks lovely, I LOVE the original cleanse and polish!

  3. Ohh I love the packaging!! I hate to admit that I haven't tried anything from Liz Earle before but have read so many blogs who love the products xx


  4. These sound like gorgeous scents, who doesn't love Liz Earle!?

  5. I love Liz Earle products! I think I might have to purchase this set for myself as the tin that they come in makes it even more tempting to buy!


  6. These products sound amazing :)

  7. I've never tried Liz Earle but it's on my wishlist :) These scents sound lovely.

  8. These are such beautiful bottles, I can't believe it's been around 20 years!


  9. I see what you meant when you said you're not always sure when to post about things! This is one of those products I was wary about the hype, and then when I tried it I absolutely fell in love with. The Rose & Lavender one seems to be most people's favourite x

  10. They do don't they, I can't wait to try them! These were all limited edition scents they have released over the last year or so, they bought them back for the anniversary.

  11. Me too Jenna, it is so good and I adore the scent of the original too.

  12. I sure hope you manage to try something soon Krystel, I have never been disappointed with anything from Liz Earle.

  13. I know, they really do sound like they will be amazing, the Rose one in particular.

  14. The tin is lovely that's for sure, I'm unsure what to use it for though at the moment, I'm definitely keeping it.

  15. I sure hope they will be! :)

  16. They do a little travel size one which is around £5, it's not bad actually as I find that it lasts me quite a while. That may be worth a try as you would get a good idea as to whether it would work for you.

  17. No me neither, I am so shocked!

  18. You're right it sounds like it is super popular! I really want to open that one now but I am trying really hard to finish off some other bits and bobs first, I am sure it will be worth the wait! :)

  19. I love the sound of all these scents - I never got on with Cleanse & Polish, it never really worked with my skin, but I'm tempted to give it another go while these are still available...

  20. I have always remembered that you were not a fan Jess, every time I review it or mention it that fact pops into my head haha! If you do try it again I hope it works better for you the second time around.

  21. Thanks! That's worth checking out!

  22. I'm really liking the packaging designs for these! Unfortunately I wasn't all that wowed by the original Cleanse & Polish - it wasn't bad, but it didn't make my skin look amazing or anything and I felt like I'd used better cleansers before. Having said that, that Rose and Lavender scent would be PERFECT for taking off makeup right before bedtime!


  23. Hiya babe, lovely things never tried it but its on my shopping list now :)

    thanks for sharing this with us.

    Visit me whenever u can;


    Have a lovely week!

    Stay in touch.

  24. So very jealous you picked up the trio set! I've been using this cleanser for about 2/3 years now and It really is one of the best. So simple, natural and all are beautifully scented, they do the job perfectly! I'm using the Christmas Edition one at the moment, I think it's Orange Blossom and Mint and it is HEAVEN! Have you seen the new scent that's just come out?!

    I can't believe I missed this offer, gah! I love using Cleanse and Polish when my skin needs a little TLC. I always seem to have a bottle in winter when my skin needs it the most!

  26. Oh that is a shame, sadly I have heard others say that it doesn't work for them that well either. I think it's hit and miss but on a whole it is a product that does well. The Rose and Lavender does sound great for an evening though doesn't it.

  27. Yes! I have that Christmas edition Jasmine, my mum got it for me which was a lovely surprise. The new scent sounds like it will be delightful I have to say.

  28. It is on offer at John Lewis I believe, I am sure I read that today somewhere. Yup it's a product I always go back to too, it is so lovely.


Thank you for stopping by!
