A little bit of this and that

My Skincare Saviour

20 March 2016
I digress, this post is something a little different from me, you've probably already guessed that from the title alone but hey, not all change is bad.  Anyhow, let me tell you a little story about my seemingly never ending battle with my skin and the saviour that came to me in the form of Liz Earle.

Through the entirety of my adolescent years at school, I had not one problem with my skin - it was as smooth and clear as a baby's. This is no word of a lie. I would always get asked just how I had managed such a feat? How was my skin always that clear? What is your secret? The answer was that I had absolutely no idea myself if I'm being perfectly honest, I just took it as a given and carried on. BIG mistake. Come my final few months of school and subsequently the next 3 years of university, my face closely resembled a dot to dot puzzle - truly humiliating. I had done a complete 360 overnight and trust me, I was not thrilled. Throw my ridiculously sensitive skin into the mix and things just got a whole lot worse from there.

Believe me, I tried everything that I could to get my skin sorted, I was willing to do just about anything that might help and trust me, there are some weird, old remedies out there on the internet. The matter of my sensitive skin, paired with the fact that it now resembled one of those old school, pop art comics was becoming a problem. Things were getting desperate. Sure, I'd read the beauty blogs and seen the videos of each and every beauty blogger praising the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish, sure. However, somewhere in the near 4 years of skin struggle, it didn't occur to me to actually try it. What a mistake that was.

Push came to shove and I made an impulse buy of the Original Cleanse and Polish one day whilst I was in town. I was expecting the usual outcome: red, dry, irritated skin and a couple more spots to add to my ever growing collection. I am praising all of the skin gods out there, because this was not the case. I'll get to the point. If you, like me are in need of a skincare saviour then look no further. Within a couple of days, my skin was looking a whole lot better - 2 weeks later and it had completely cleared up. For real, I couldn't make this stuff up. What about if you have sensitive skin like me? No problem! I've never had any problems with Cleanse & Polish whatsoever and it leaves your skin soft and smooth, which is all a girl can ask for. After discovering this miracle cleanser, I've repurchased it at least 6 times which is always a good sign. I have nothing but praise for Cleanse & Polish and can only praise Liz Earle and all those beautiful people on the Isle of Wight for making me look more human again. Honestly, if you're looking for a new cleanser, this one could be just what you're after.

Handy Things You Might Want to Know:

  • You can purchase Cleanse and Polish online from the Liz Earle website, or it's also available in many Boots and John Lewis' in the UK
  • Ranging in sizes from mini tester tubes, through to 100ml pumps, Cleanse and Polish is priced between £6 and £15.50, depending on the size you go for (prices as of March 2016) but there are always special offers popping up on the website every now and again
  • Cleanse & Polish has won countless beauty awards, just in case you needed conformation that it is in fact that good!
  • It's a hot cloth cleanser: you apply onto a dry face and then gently remove with a hot muslin cloth (which handily you can buy with the cleanser!)
  • Personally, I use the cleanser twice a day as recommended - morning and night, and find that the standard size pump lasts around 1 month before I need to repurchase. If you're keen, there is even the option of buying a 12 month subscription!
  • Lots of other FAQs are listed here for any other queries that you may have!
In all honesty, this cleanser has well and truly saved my skin and I can see it being my go to skin product for quite some time!

Until next time,
