Battle Of The Hot Cloth Cleansers

Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser (£4.99) VS. Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser (£14.75)

As I have said a million times I love love love drugstore products but every so often I do give in and treat myself. I think looking after your skin is really important so I will spend a little bit more on skincare if I think it is really going to help my skin. In the last year or so I have discovered hot cloth cleansers and they are now definitely my favourite cleansers ever. These two are probably my favourite and luckily one is higher end and one drugstore, so lets see if splashing the cash is really worth it!

Both of these have a similar texture in that they are super creamy and soft. I personally like the texture of the Liz Earle one slightly more as it feels slightly more creamy and nourishing than the Superdrug cleanser. Both of these leave my skin feeling clean and nourished all night, which is what you need from a cleanser. These both apply really nicely and when I massage them into my skin they stay lovely and creamy.

For me the one thing that puts me off the Liz Earle cleanser is the smell. I'm sure for some people the smell is fine or even nice but I really don't like it. It is rosemary scented and in my opinion that just isn't a fragrance I want on my face! On the other hand Superdrug Vitamin E cleanser smells amazing! It doesn't actually say what the scent is and reading the ingredients I can't pinpoint what the amazing smell is but something smells great!!  

Overall I feel like both of these products do really work and it is so hard to pick a favourite but I do the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser just steals it. Yes, I do hate the smell but I can look past that as the cleanser itself is amazing! My skin has felt 100 times cleaner and softer since I started using this. If though splashing out nearly £15 on a cleanser isn't your thing the Superdrug one is a great dupe and one that is almost as amazing. So for this one splurging is the way forward!

Remember these are just my opinions so you may love one that I don't. What cleansers do you use? And what are your thoughts on these 2? Hope you enjoyed and thanks for reading!
