Clash of the Hot Cloth Cleansers

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish VS Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser

Ahh the hot cloth cleanser, I know pretty much every blogger and their dog have heard of them. In fact the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish (£14.25 100ml) was one of the first things that caught my eye when I discovered blog land, so many amazing reviews, I was sold. Like the majority of beauty bloggers I am well and truly on the Liz Earle bandwagon. From the moment I unwrapped it from its beautiful packaging I knew it was love.

It has naturally active ingredients which include eucalyptus and cocoa butter for smoother, cleaner skin. I love the fact it’s all natural and I know I’m not putting anything harsh on my skin. I also really love the smell. It really smells like its doing a good job if that makes sense? Like my skin is getting a good clean after a hard days work. This removes every scrap of make up and I can go to sleep knowing my skin is fresh and clean.

So why bother with any other product? Being the working girl that I am, I have bills to pay I have food to buy and the odd social blow out to attend and sometimes these much loved products have to be sacrificed in order for me to survive.

Will a high street cleanser live up to the award winning Cleanse and Polish?

I picked up the Superdrug Vitamin E when it was on offer for the bargainous price of £2.99 which also included a muslin cloth (it’s usually about £5.99). It comes in a 200ml tube which is great because it will last me forever. The smell reminds me of cocoa butter and the product feels soft on my skin. Afterwards  it leaves my skin clean and moisturised but it doesn’t leave me with that fresh, my skin is squeaky clean feeling. It does however still do a great job of removing my make up.

Which do I prefer? I have to say my favourite is still the reigning champ Liz Earle, there’s just something about it that just makes it that bit better than Vitamin E, it just has that ‘X Factor’ (cringe, I know but I’m not sure how else to explain it).

However as times are hard I will continue to purchase the Vitamin E Cleanser as its under half the price and does a pretty damn good job!

Can I also just add that I am really excited to try the Limited edition Rose and LavenderHot cloth Cleanser eeeeeek! Roll on pay day.

Have you tried either of these? Have you found anything better? I would love to know!


  1. I've not tried the Liz Earle one but I swear by the No7 hot cloth cleanser from Boots. Its only £9 or £4 if you have a £5 off voucher!! Xx

    1. Oo i like no7 skincare thats next on my list to try! X

  2. I think I'm the only person in blog-land who doesn't like this Liz Earle cleanser! We just didn't get on at all, as much as I wanted to. :( xx

    1. O thats a shame! There are so many products that people love and i just don't get. Thats why everyone is different though! X

  3. Ooo I might have to check out the Superdrug one. I'm nearly out of Liz Earle and being on Maternity pay I can't really afford to splash out on that so the superdrug one seems to be a good alternative

    1. Yeah its a great Alternative it keeps me going in the hard financial times! x
