Has anyone used Boots No 7 Radiance Boosting Hot Cloth Cleanser? Looks rather similar to Liz Earle's Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser?
I saw this in Boots today - 200ml for £8.75 which looks a bargain! I tend to use Liz Earle's Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, and have been very happy with it, but this looks worth a try. Just wondered if anyone could recommend it?
Yes, I'm using it right now. It's not quite as good as the LE (doesn't smell as lovely and botanical and treaty) but it's better than a lot of hot cloth cleanser knock-offs and less than half the price.
Mind you, I suspect it's probably Boots' The Sanctuary Hot Cloth Cleanser in different packaging but who knows...
interesting, wildfig... I am a big LE C&P fan, is it worth trying out the Boots alternative or would you say not???? LE is within my budget, so don't want to compromise if not as good, but always happy to save if quality not compromised.
lilolil why not try it next time Boots does a £5 off No7 voucher and see for yourself? It's definitely not as botanical as the LE but since at least 50% of the hot cloth benefit is in the massaging/warm water/polishing off, I'd rather save the £10 difference now and again and spend that on better moisturiser, which you do leave on your skin instead of rinsing it off almost immediately. Love Liz Earle and always end up going back to it, but in times of budget crackdowns, it does seem a bit mad to spend £20 on cleanser.
Can't really comment on the cloths, since I use flannels, but apparently the best ones are Eve Lom?
Thanks for all the feedback! I have used Eve Lom too, and really liked it, but have found a fantastic substitute in Spiezia's facial cleanser. I used Liz Earle for a couple of years until a few months ago, but when I ran out of the Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser Spiezia had a special offer, so I bought their product. I have bought the Boots product (Â£8.75) today and received a Â£5 No 7 voucher, which I put towards a Â£7 eye makeup remover. So, in total Â£10.75 spent on 200ml of cleanser, and 100ml of eye makeup remover. Worth a try - Liz Earle's Cleanse and Polish is Â£11.50 for 100ml, so I'd like to see how it compares.
Using no 7 currently and love it. Usually use Emma Hardie once a day and a cheaper one in the morning so I don't get through a Emma hardie tub too quick. No 7 has left my skin looking much brighter. Superdrug vitamin e didn't do that but just cleaned. It didn't make me look more awake though like this one does. Bought it with a £5 off voucher (and have another one) so will likely repurchase when it's that cheap!
