Have heard rave reviews about it but its pretty pricey....is it worth it??

TIA

I love it. I dont find it too pricey really - if you are careful the c +p lasts quite a while. If you are like me, you spend loads on crap anyway - fiver here and there trying out things from the supermarket and then having 1/2 filled bottles in your drawers. blush

Actually when put like that, that's quite a good point!

I'm a product slut grin I've probably spent an absolute fortune on products!

Hmm....what would you recommend?

louiespence Thu 08-Sep-11 14:10:03

I love the cleanse and polish, have used it for years! Don't really rate the moisturisers though, I find them pretty average for the price but that might just be me smile!

Love cleanse and polish for dd - pre-teen but prone to spots and want her to get into a good routine early.

I like the shower gel etc, but never wash my face!

Toner ('instant boost skin tonic') is lovely and gentle for a wake-up feeling.

CoffeeRevel Thu 08-Sep-11 14:24:24

I love it. I use the cleanse and polish, the tonic and the moisturiser, (though I don't always use the tonic). I was sent a shower gel as a gift, and it is gor-gee-ous. thoroughly recommend it.

Gillybobs Thu 08-Sep-11 14:29:33

Ive loved everything Ive ever tried from there. C&P is a must. Tonic beautiful but I dont find it an essential. Moisturiser is lovely, leaves skin velvety. Body washes are devine, Body cream ditto, hand cream so moisturising but leaves a nice matte finish (ie not greasy), God I could go on for hours....

ShangriLaLaLa Thu 08-Sep-11 14:37:21

The shampoo is fantastic. I have a real problem scalp (nice) and this leaves my hair clean, soft and my scalp comfortable. Seems ££££ but you only need a little and it lasts forever. Smells gorgeous too.

MilkNoSugarPlease Thu 08-Sep-11 14:48:39

Hmm ...pretty resounding yes then grin

Am desperate to try the c&p and toner....I used to use soap and glory moisturiser but stopped as it was to pricey....bt if I'm buying Liz earle I may aswell go back to soap and glory grin

shineon, was wondering if you've got fantastic genes as well to help you along? I'm v cautious about spending over the odds on a pot of cream that promises miracles..

i really like it - and I think there is a TSV coming up soon too.

HeavyHeidi Thu 08-Sep-11 15:26:43

I don't get the hype. At least I didn't break out like some other people have said, but I didn't see or feel any difference. And smells horrible, like grandma's medicine cabinet.

Oh I like Liz Earle. C&P is lovely, and I use the moisturiser alternate nights with Boots P+P.
My skin is very good, especially considering I'm 34 and rarely get more than 3 hours sleep in one hit grin

If you stick to the basic products then it isn't that expensive. I'm quite keen to give the serum a go but I've got another couple of tubes of the P+P one in the drawer which I am going to use up first.

Cartoonjane Thu 08-Sep-11 16:18:02

C and P great and not that expensive (although you don't get the cloths with the bigger size; does anyone know where I can get some quite cheaply?) but don't think much of the moisturizers. I agree about the Elemis marine cream but it is very expensive. I have Aesop primrose moisturizer at the moment and it' s lovely- fabulous smell and not too expensive but feels really special.

tulpe Thu 08-Sep-11 16:34:36

I have been using C&P for a week now (got 2 x 100mls + 4 cloths free with a subscription to Vogue - which was also a bargainous £19.99 for 10 issues). I absolutely love it. My skin is dry with a tendency towards monthly hormonal breakout. However, I don't need to use moisturiser with this product at all which is a total unexpected bonus.

I am also an aromatherapist and I love that you can aromatically identify all the key essential oil ingredients in this product - always an important to me as often with other products you can't smile

Went to buy it in John Lewis, whilst queing to pay the Liz Earle lady person asked if I'd like to try any products and get a sample bag for my troubles....so I tried c+p on my hand

My (Very mild...not really affected by products) eczema flared up like no bodies business!

was sore almost immediatly and withhin 20m was red and sor and itchy...by the next day it was cracked and weeping!!


Needless to say I didn't buy it!!

Fluffycloudland77 Tue 20-Sep-11 10:47:39

I use the c+p, toner, moisturiser and deep cleansing mask.

I find them all very good and the toner has converted me.

But if I dont have my 2ltrs of water a day I break out on my cheeks.

I ordered a 15ml moisturiser 2 months ago and use it nightly, and I still have some left so it is quite economical.

I tried the sanctury version of the hot cloth cleanser and broke out all over my cheeks and chin. Took me 2 weeks to get back to normal.

snazaroo Tue 20-Sep-11 10:49:31

I have just this week bought the cleanse and polish. I thikn the actual cleanser is nothing special and doesnt smell particularly nice, but hot cloth process is very effective. To be honest you could probably use any cleanser and a muslin cloth dipped in hot water.

Eve Lom is loads better and smells divine but is ££££

warmandwooly Tue 20-Sep-11 11:26:48

I have C and P- Liz Earle has an outlet on Ebay where you may find special deals etc. As for muslin cloths I saw some in my local home bargains for less than fifty pence. At the mo I am using the Boots hot cloth cleanser bought at a discount using Boots five quid skin care vouchers.

HazeltheMcWitch Tue 20-Sep-11 13:30:34

I don't have a Home Bargains, but have seen muslin cloths in the Body Shop - probably a bit more expensive than HB however!

ameliagrey Tue 20-Sep-11 13:56:54

I don't rate it. I have a sample of the C&P and think it has a funny smell and is way too thick- it really pulls your skin when you remove it.

TBH it's the polish that is the bit that works- so removing any old cleanser with a muslin cloth or a clean flannel will exfoliate and give you a glow.

I use expensice moisturisers- Clinique Youth Surge, and REN serums and night creams, but use cheapo L'Oreal cleanser and it works a treat- for around £4.
