Limited Edition: Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish | Grapefruit and Patchouli


First things first, what do you all think of my brand spanking new layout? Cosmetic Crave has had a makeover (again), but I think this one is a little something special! Serena did a fabulous job at spicing things up and I totally love it. Secondly, today is your last chance to vote in the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards 2013, so if you enjoy reading Cosmetic Crave then please spare a vote in the Best New Beauty Blog category. Thirdly, and lastly - Don't forget to check out two of my newly added pages to my blog: Advertising and Guest Posting - two different ways to feature on this blog! Now, onto the review..

Today, 29th August, is the release date for this new twist on the classic and cult cleanser from Liz Earle, so it is available for you to get your paws on right now, from any Liz Earle stockists (I usually just use the Liz Earle site directly - link).

Last year Liz Earle released a calming rose and lavender variant of the award-winning Cleanse and Polish cleanser, and this year it's time for a zingy and refreshing burst of grapefruit and patchouli instead. I use this as my morning cleanser now, simply because of how uplifting and revistalising it is for the skin with it's burst of fruity freshness! Ideal for a morning wake up call. It still has the exact same skincare benefits as the original formula and is still the same rich, creamy and nourishing cleanser that helps the skin to feel soft, clean and healthy! The key differences in this limited edition C&P are: the smell is a little less herbal, with the scent of rosemary far less detectable, and a much more citrus based fragrance replaces that, although it is only subtle. And, the other key difference is the bottle design: I'm sorry to be superficial but I am a sucker for pretty packaging; plain and simple. Change the colour of something, add a couple of pretty swirls and flowers onto it and I want in.

The £6.50 price bump from the regular pump bottle does seem justified when you realise that this limited edition version is actually a larger bottle, and there is 50ml more cleanser inside that usual. This version is available in one size only: 150ml. I'm not 100% sure how long this will be on sale for; I think it is just for as long as stocks last ..so I'm already weighing up whether to buy a 2nd tube for a back up! If you're a fan of the original, or you're new to the product completely - this is one that you want to catch while you can!

  12. I finally picked up the normal Cleanse & Polish a few weeks ago and I absolutely LOVE it! I ended up making a spontaneous order last night for this limited edition one. Got the email tonight to say it's been dispatched - just hope it's as amazing as the original!
    Love the new layout, also xxx
