The product comes out of the tube in a thick, creamy dollop (fnar) and spreads beautifully across the skin. The scent has herby tones and whilst not exactly the same, is not dissimilar to Liz Earle’s Cleanse and Polish, neither of which are too strong and don’t overwhelm you as you smooth the product over your skin. Thankfully it doesn’t have the sun cream smell which came with the Vitamin E Range which, whilst a lovely product, did put me off after months of use.
Whilst the muslin cloth which comes in the pack isn’t quite as soft as the one that comes with the Liz Earle product, combined with the cleanser is easily removes my make up (even stubborn mascara – although not waterproof) and traces of the day. Removing make up always leaves my easily inflamed (due to illness) skin looking pretty angry and red, sometimes cleansers can really aggravate my skin and leave it red for days. When using this product my skin is red for about 5 minutes after use and never feels broken, hot, sore or tight. After use my skin feels supple, lightly buffed, hydrated and happy. I often walk away from the bathroom forgetting to moisturise because my skin feels so elastic and moisturised which seems pretty good to me!
I did have some reservations about the ‘brightening’ claims as I do find these types of products can strip my skin a little in the long run but I’ve found this product to be pretty gentle on my skin and I have yet to feel like I have over exfoliated or stripped away natural oils.
Naturally Radiant Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser is a soothing, calming, hydrating cleanser which is just the trick to remove make up at the end of the day and helps your skin feel and look better too. Coming it at £5.99 normally this is a great product but even better if you can pick it up on offer (it is currently half price at the time of publishing this post) for under £3!
