A Beauty Chat: Face Off #2


Following on from the last face off, I thought I would for for some more affordable products.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Cleanser vs Superdrug Naturally Radiant Cleanser

Both Hot a Cloth Cleansers and are affordable skin are options for those on a lower price budget. 
Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish (£13.25 100ml pump/£14.75 started kit with Muslin clothswas the first hot cloth cleanser I purchased and I instantly loved it. It is very calming and gentle on the skin, and when removed with cloth, there is no residue and doesn't leave skin feeling stripped or tight. Which is very similar to the Superdrug Naturally Radiant (£2.98 on offer now/£5.99which leaves skin feeling soft and clean. Both are brilliant as makeup removers and there's just something so relaxing about rubbing this into your skin after a long day at work and then removing with a warm cloth. 

Now for the deets.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser
This can be used both morning and night, and is suitable for every skin type. As a plant-based cleanser, this is a two step product - step 1 cleanses the skin, and step 2 polishes off using the muslin cloth. This removes every trace of makeup (even waterproof mascara) effortlessly, as well as removing any impurities and nasty stuff from the day. Once removed your skin feels soft and fresh but most importantly clean, with no signs of uncomfortable and irritable skin at all. With Chamomile essential oil to soothe the skin, cocoa butter for smoother cleaner skin and Eucalyptus for its decongestant properties. This bottle of cleanser has naturally active ingredients which all have their own jobs to do and believe me, they sure do them well. Liz Earle pride themselves on their use of naturally active ingredients, and produce simple, yet effective products with none of the nasties in there.

Superdrug Naturally Radiant Hot Cloth Cleanser
This offering is very similar, with no uncomfortable or tight feeling after use, just a feeling of nourishment and softness, whilst having thoroughly removed every last trace of makeup and dirt from the skin. With an infusion of kiwi fruit (source of vitamin C) and mulberry extracts to help rejuvenate skins radiance, and even out skin tone whilst proving protection against free radicals, the Cocoa butter is very rich and melts into the skin to get rid of impurities and provide gentle exfoliation to help brighten skin and leave feeling soft and clean. 

Which is the winner?
The fact that both of these use natural ingredients is something my skin really seems to react positively to so the performance of both of these is amazing. But I must say, that my skin has been loving the Superdrug option and the extra hydration boost this gives compared to then LE offering has done wonders for my dehydrated skin so I think on that basis my favourite (but only by a fraction) is the Superdrug own brand - Naturally Radiant. I got a couple other products from them but I am definitely keen to try the whole range.

What's your favourite hot cloth cleanser?
