Of everything Soap & Glory has to offer on the facial skincare market right now this has to be the one thing that is recommended to me most. As a result it’s the product I was most interested to try. You’ve all heard of the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish, it’s a blogger favourite and everyone out there is looking to find a drugstore alternative. So far I’ve tried two, this and the Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser – you can read about that in my Cleansers 101 post here. I do like the Liz Earle but it’s not readily available and I don’t like to get my skin hooked on something I can’t run out and buy when it’s all used up. This is a great alternative but I’ll run you through some of the differences.
As with it’s beloved counterpart it has a certain herbal scent but I personally prefer this, it’s a little fresher and well.. just more my kind of fragrance. The formula is very similar, a thick cream designed to remove makeup and cleanse your skin though I would say this is a little thinner in consistency and it’s not designed for eye makeup removal – this was disappointing! It works well with the supplied muslin cloth as well as with my Clarisonic where as the Liz Earle is a touch thick so that was a bonus and hey, can we take a minute to look at the pink edges and S&G tag on said cloth? Little details!
Overall I think this is great! If you take your eye makeup off prior to cleansing then my only disappointment with this cleanser is moot. I prefer the thinner formula, the scent and even the packaging and let’s not forget you can buy this at boots on your lunch hour.. oh and it’s cheaper!
