Ok so it’s taken me a while to get back around to reviewing more stuff from the Latest in Beauty box I first mentioned here. But in my defense, I’ve been busy planning for my holiday and I wanted to make sure I properly used the products in order to be able to review them well.
The product I want to focus on next is Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser. The cleanser comes with a pure muslin cloth to help remove the cleanser along with a whole host of impurities. I LOVE this product! I’m a big fan of Liz Earle products, I have yet to come across one I haven’t liked or noticed a pleasant improvement with.
Starting with a dry face, you squeeze a little of the cleanser onto your fingers and massage across the face in a circular motion. You should have a sink of warm/ hot water in which you can submerge the muslin cloth, ring out so that it is damp. Gently remove the cleanser with clean areas of the muslin for each part of the face.
This cleanser really does feel super luxurious, I don’t know if it’s the addition of the muslin cloth that makes the whole experience more spa like and professional, but either way it’s feels really good like you have had a real deep cleanse. I’m a bit of a weirdo in that I love seeing all the dirt that has been washed away and the cloth allows that very clearly, it makes you realise how important a good cleanser is!
The product left my skin feeling silky soft, not oily or dry, and visibly clearer. I really really like this cleanser and it’s not unobtainable, it’s £14.25 for the 100ml starter kit that comes with the muslin cloth, which I think is a completely acceptable price for a high quality cleanser.

Second up I wanted to share my thoughts on the Elemis Sp@ Home Pro-collagen Body Cream. Now I wasn’t blown away by this product. I felt like you needed quite a bit to work up enough of a smooth coverage to feel moisturised. There was also a very unwanted glittery shimmer which I had no idea about until I had smothered my entire body in the stuff, not great when I was on my way into work!!
I feel like it’s a massive contradiction, it’s an anti-ageing cream yet has a sparkly glitter element that mimics what you may find in a teenage gimmicky product and it’s £49 for 200ml. I’m a little disappointed as I normally really like Elemis products, perhaps they should stick to the salon and spa products rather than spa at home products. Click here for more information.
