A few years ago I used to break out regularly. My face was an oily crater park, and my nose was covered with so many black heads, it looked like a freckled bird's egg. This was despite the fact that everyday I washed daily with products from Clearasil, which claimed to get rid of spots within a matter of days. I'd been using these products for years, and saw no results.
Then, one birthday, I received a selection of beauty products from a brand called Liz Earle. The company uses completely natural ingredients and are preservative free. Within two weeks I saw a dramatic improvement in my complexion; many of the spots I had were now gone, and although I still had blackheads, no new ones were cropping up.
I continued to use the products until I ran out, and then decided that out of the ones I was given, Liz Earle's Cleanse & Polish was my favourite. It was stage one of a three-piece set, which also included an Instant Tonic Boost, and a Deep Mask Cleanse. Other products in the range include an Eyebright soothing lotion, which is good for removing make-up, and making you appear perkier than you feeI. I didn't feel like I needed all of these, so just stuck with the Cleanse & Polish.
I have been using it for several years now, and barely ever break out; my nose is also almost blackhead-free. I think the fact that it uses all natural ingredients such as cocoa butter, chamomile, and eucalyptus oil means that it is kinder to my skin than all the harsh chemicals in the high street brands. And far more effective.
You can buy Cleanse & Polish in a pump or a tube. I personally prefer the pump, because with the tube, once I get half way through, it is difficult to squeeze the rest out, and I half to cut the tube in half to get the rest out (giving it the chance to dry out).
100ml is £12.75, while 200ml is £24. You can also buy the product with a muslin cloth. I now have so many that I will never have to buy a never flannel again.
