I have been looking for a natural skincare product that is not tested on animals, this seems to fit the bill.

Just wanted to hear other people's opinions before I bought it ...

I have used the Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser -much cheaper than LE C&P and I find just as good. Not sure about Superdrug's animal testing history though.

Oh heck that's a shame lololizzy. Maybe order a shop from them and get some that way?

drove nearly an hour to get to Asda..and all sold out! :-(

Doesn't work for me. Tried it twice, and both times came out in spots. Now use Caudalie foaming cleaner, which I love.

Can I just add, if you buy the products form the Liz Earle website, you get a free sample of something, you can actually request what you'd like if you phone them.
Also if you buy cleanser, toner and moisturiser you get a free full size of something. It's different every month but his month it's a full sized shampoo, last month it was a full sized body moisturiser.

Greg, I don't think it's vastly over priced at all. I couldn't believe the price of some Olay moisturiser I saw in boots the other day, it was over £20 for the same size as LE, the smell and consistency of the Olay didn't compare to LE.

Bouncey, it is not about the animal testing, it is about Avon taking over and changing what was a very good product, increasing the price making it vastly overpriced IMO and sacking half of the staff based on the island

I'm a yes. Been using it for years

TallulahTwinkle Thu 14-Mar-13 09:42:20

Thanks everyone, think I am just going to get a sample to try, my skin is so spotty at the moment I need something miraculous!

MoYerBoat Wed 13-Mar-13 07:02:39

Thanks, Quick & root. that's what I do but we are having our bathroom re-done and I'm concerned about the aethestics of muslin cloth on our lovely new radiator!

I think I might be over-thinking this smile

rootypig Wed 13-Mar-13 05:05:53

Jazz ultrabland is lovely but too heavy for me so perhaps is a skin type thing?

rootypig Wed 13-Mar-13 05:05:14

Mo same as Quick, I use clean one morning, same one night to take my face off, then onto the towel rail to dry and into the washbasket at some point.

QuickLookBusy Tue 12-Mar-13 21:16:26

Mo, I rinse it out and then pop on the radiator. I only use it twice and then put in the washing machine with towels etc.

MoYerBoat Tue 12-Mar-13 20:49:42

Where do you put your muslin cloths between uses?

<needs to get out more>

I tried it to see what all the fuss was about and was underwhelmed. I suspect my evangelical friends just think it is amazing because they are used to using foaming washes or make-up-removing wipes hmm. I've been using Lush's Ultrabland and removing it with a hot cloth for years and years (with bouts of OCM here and there), so LE failed to impress me - I thought it was OK but no better than Ultrabland and maybe not quite as good. More expensive, obviously.

CuriousMama Tue 12-Mar-13 13:12:47

Yes think I'll try it too. On offer as well smile

lololizzy Tue 12-Mar-13 13:12:08

thanks Curious, for that price I'll probably give it a whirl..

QuickLookBusy Mon 11-Mar-13 22:38:31

Love C and P. have used for about 6 years. I did try new things when it was sold to Avon, but i couldnt find anything I liked so ended up going back. I didn't realise the ingredients had changed though I haven't noticed any difference at all.

I also use the toner, moisturiser, the body moisturiser is good as is hand cream and eye bright is lovey for getting off mascara.

I love the fact it does smell natural, I really hate artificial smells that are in som products. You don't get that with LE.

rootypig Mon 11-Mar-13 22:31:55

like: C&P, toner
love: nourishing mask, eye bright
do not like: body moisturiser, hand cream, face moisturisers

if you go C&P route buy a load of cheap muslins (if you have sensitive skin) or flannels (if you have normal / oily skin - ikea do packs of 10 white ones with handy little coloured loops for hanging) and use a new one every morning, then same one that night to wash your face off. and really massage the cream in first, it has a really relaxing smell.

lilolilmanchester Mon 11-Mar-13 22:31:28

Another Cleanse and Polish fan, and like their toner. I like, but can take or leave., their other products .But always come back to C&P.

timidviper Mon 11-Mar-13 22:29:54

I love C&P and the toner but the superskin stuff does not suit me at all

CuriousMama Mon 11-Mar-13 22:29:39

lololizzy just looked, says hot cloth polish is ok for sensitive. Couldn't see SLS on the ingredients for that one? Here it is.

lololizzy Mon 11-Mar-13 22:24:30

SLS, def not for me then, am very sensitive, with LE i can rub it in my eyes to get last of stubborn mascara off...with no probs

CuriousMama Mon 11-Mar-13 22:23:14

Asda's have SLS in though don't they?

lololizzy Mon 11-Mar-13 22:23:08

do Asda do a version of C and P?

Arisbottle Mon 11-Mar-13 22:13:59

I have bought my daughters the asda version!
