Hot Cloth Cleansers - No.7 vs Liz Earle

Hi dolls

Hot cloth cleansers are possibly my favourite skin care product discovery this year. These are the two that I've tried so far & I thought I'd share my opinions on them.

No.7 Radiance Boosting Hot Cloth Cleanser & Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser.

No.7 Radiance Boosting Hot Cloth Cleanser:

This is my new every day skincare product.

I use it every evening to remove my make up & to cleanse my face and I love it.

At a HUGE 200ml it's double the size of the Cleanse & Polish so I don't mind using it everyday because you get so much more product. I use 1 or 2 pumps depending on how much make up I'm wearing and this is plenty, I've had this for nearly 3 weeks now and as you can see from the top picture I've hardly used any! I must admit it smells alot more artificial than the Cleanse & Polish which I'm not a fan of, thumbs down No.7!

I bought this the last time the No.7 vouchers were doing the rounds which meant I only paid £4.00 for this, LOVE! It normally costs £9.00 which I still think is very reasonable considering how much product you get but I think I'll wait until the vouchers are knocking around again & stock up!

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish:

This was the first hot cloth cleanser & infact Liz Earle product I tried and it was love at first sight (or use!)

No other product has ever made my skin feel as fresh & clean as this product. I used to use this every morning & evening but now I've discovered the No.7 version I use this every couple of days as a treat.

I hope you can see from the picture that this product is alot thicker than the No.7 version which I find makes me use much less, one pump goes a long way! Cleanse and Polish smells ALOT nicer than the No.7 product, it smells 'natural' if that makes sense?!

For £13.00 you get 100ml of product & 2 muslin cloths which I do think is very good value and there isn't that much difference if you are paying full price for the No.7 product, this is why I will only buy the No.7 product when using the vouchers.

Overall I would have to say I prefer the Liz Earle version but I would certainly recommend the No.7 cleanser for a cheaper alternative, especially when using a voucher!

One thing I would recommend is even if you are going to choose the No.7 version I would pick up some Liz Earle muslin cloths. They are a million times better quality than the one No.7 ones and I think they really make a difference.

Have you tried any hot cloth cleansers, if so what are your favourites?

  1. I've tried both and I love the no7 one because the Liz Earle really broke me out!! :( Loved the smell though, it reminded me of airwaves chewing gum! You should try using flannels instead of muslin cloths, I have found they are LOADS better. Asda do a pack of 4 for around 75p! :) xxx

  2. @Amy

    I've never thought of using a flannel, I'll have to try that! Sorry to hear C&P broke you out :( xx

  3. I agree with you 100% on this post!! I've done something similar on my blog as well at first I 'thought' the No7 cleanser was the best thing that ever happened to me.. that is until I tried the Liz Earle one! It's great and I don't even wear foundation anymore! I feel more comfortable now in my own skin x

  4. Liz Earle's hot cloth cleanser broke me out :( xx

  5. I've been using a Sanctuary one at the minute and it's lovely - they really do make your skin feel great.

  6. I keep saying I'm going to buy the Liz Earl one but I never quite get round to it! xx

  7. aaah, this one reminds me a lot to my current cleansing lotion from beautyzen range! I've been using a lotion cleanser for more than 4 years though. Say no to soapy cleanser =D

  8. Great review! :)

    I've been using Liz Earle Cleanse and POlish and I liked it alot. But I havent heard No7 has similar one too :o.


  9. I have been wondering what the differences between both are because I wanted to pick up some new skin care. Great post, thanks :) x
