Before I got my Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish, I really wanted to hop onto the Hot Cloth Cleanser bandwagon. They were all the range, and the idea of something that could just smooth over your (possibly made-up) face, then sweep away yucky dirt and grime sounded amazing.
I had a nifty £5 off No7 Voucher, and on one Sunday Morning Boots Trip the thought of 200ml of Creamy Gorgeousness at under £5 was all too exciting, so into my basked hopped the No7 Beautiful Skin Hot Cloth Cleanser.
I can't fault the specs of this one. 200ml is double that of Liz Earle, and the packaging is really convenient too. Firstly, it's compact. Yes, it's a tad bigger than Liz Earle, but at double the product quantity you'd expect it to be. Secondly, the packaging has a rising pump which means that you get every last drop of product. This cleanser will last you a very long time. Hurrah!
The No7 Hot Cloth Cleanser also smells lovely, like a fragrant spa item.
The product itself is FAB! It's got a rich consistency which blends gorgeously (as demonstrated above) and honestly removes any ick like a house on fire. I don't wear makeup every day, but when I do and I use this it removes it A*.
It soothes my skin, making it feel so soft and nourished. It's suitable for every skin type imo and definitely makes me feel more awake in the mornings without overloading you with zinggy, harsh, acidy lemon cleanser. Alternatively, it soothes ya skin ready for bed at night, without shoving a load of chamomile or lavender up your nose or scrubbing all the dirt off your face like you've rubbed gravel over it.
I do own the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser, and how do I stand in the No7 Hot Cloth Cleanser vs Liz Earle wars? I love them both equally, and because you pay that lump extra for old Liz, it's a bit better, but this is a jolly good dupe. My skincare routine now consists of this No7 Hot Cloth Cleanser in the morning and Liz Earle at night. I love it, it's the perfect treatment for my skin.
Overall I absolutely love this as a dupe for Liz Earle, or as a lighter option i.e. in the mornings orrrr whenever you want a lighter, but still soothing and lets-make-my-skin-feel-like-a-baby's-arse treatment. Hehehe.
