I'm a big fan and long time user of Liz Earle's hit cloth cleanser. I noticed Aldi have a version now. Has anyone tried it? If so what is it like? If you have also used Liz Earle, how does it compare? I've used Aldi moisturisers for years and it is as good as any other brand I've tried - for my skin anyway. Thanks
I haven't tried the Aldi one, but I have the Superdrug version on the go at the moment. I really like it, and it does the job well. I think I will stick with it and buy another tube when I run out. It's about £5 or £6 so very reasonably priced.
Aldi one is on special offer from tomorrow along with a few other beauty products. Will be hot footing it down there as they open! I didn't get on with the Superdrug one so am keen to give this a go as I am a big fan of of Aldi products.
I bought some of this today. Previously, I've used both the Liz Earle hot cloth cleanser and the Superdrug one in the green tube. I think the Aldi one was more similar to the Liz Earle cleanser. It seems to have a lot of essential oil on it, particularly eucalyptus. My skin, which is quite dry and sensitive, seems fine so far.
I'd stopped using Liz Earle.com in favour of the Superdrug version, but might switch to Aldi because I like the smell.
You can tell that Aldi intend to flag up that it's like the Liz Earle one, because it has a similar circular device, with leaves, on the box. They did the same thing at Christmas with some very good Fortnums-a-like cakes.
I don't know what it is about Aldi products but I have now tried a night cream and the hot cloth cleanser and I'm allergic to both. So if anyone would like a once used tube of the cleanser I'm happy to post it out!
I use Liz Earle cleanse & polish and was wondering about the ethics of this one. It says suitable for vegans but there is no symbol to say not tested on animals so for this reason even at a cheap price I will give it a miss
I use ponds cold cream as a hot cloth cleanser - and I love it. Follow with Nivea creme. Both products are super cheap and neither irritate or dry out my skin. Even have fewer spots since. Have very irritable skin and Liz Earle products are too strongly fragranced for me.
