Rose and Cedrat Limited Edition Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish

Permalink

I love all the little signs that spring is on it’s way; the bulbs pushing up through the grass, the sun shining more often, and a new Liz Earle Limited Edition Cleanse and Polish to try – Rose and Cedrat!

Rose & Cedrat Limited Edition

Cleanse and Polish has been my skincare staple for many years now, since I developed eczema, and  I’m a sucker for their Limited Editions which they’ve been bringing out for a few years now. The latest in the line is Rose and Cedrat – a very spring like fragrance, combining damask rose oil with citrussy cedrat oil. I love how the team at Liz Earle really understand plants and the seasons; the fragrance is beautifully delicate, but really nails everything you’re after in spring – floral and refreshing.

Benefits of Rose and Cedrat Oils

Rose oil is thought to balance the mind and fight against depression, as well as having antiseptic and moisturising properties, so it’s an ideal ingredient for a cleanser. It can help to reduce redness and soothe irritated skin.

Cedrat is an essential oil I’m less familiar with, having only come across it before in Jo Malone’s Incense & Cedrat cologne. It’s an oil derived from a fruit a little like a lemon, so has a zesty and uplifting scent and, like rose oil, is thought to banish depression and inspire positive feelings. Although I’m a little sceptical that this cleanser might be able to banish depression, I certainly find it uplifting to use and very refreshing.

How to use it

I use the Cleanse and Polish twice daily as part of the Liz Earle 3-step Cleanse, Tone and Moisturise routine. To use the Cleanse and Polish, you simply pump the nozzle once and then gentle apply the cream to your face. Then take the muslin cloth provided and dampen it with hot water, before using the cloth to gently massage in circles all over your face. The muslin works to exfoliate all those dead skin cells, leaving your skin glowing.

Like all of the Limited Editions, this comes in a beautiful presentation cylinder and two silver edged muslin cloths, so this is a great last minute idea for Valentines Day (should I have any male readers who are pondering this – seems unlikely!)

My skin can be a little sensitive to fragranced products, but I’ve not found that the Rose and Cedrat edition has caused any negative reaction on my skin or flared up my eczema at all. In theory these ingredients should be ideal for eczema sufferers (although I know that theory and reality don’t always align when it comes to eczema!)

 

The Liz Earle range is available direct from their website and Liz Earle stores.

    Would love to try this too, especially since I also have eczema, though to be fair I haven’t had any, ever since I started using Aveeno. I’m in my 40s now and I still seem to have a few adult pimples, this might just do the trick! Thanks for the link, will definitely have a look 🙂

      Ah, Aveeno is just amazing stuff! The Liz Earle and Aveeno combo is great for me and keeps my eczema under control, if not completely banished.

    What a fab review! I have dry skin which gets worse in winter and ends up with sore red patches on my chin mainly. I love anything with rose scent in so I’m going to treat myself and give this a go. Liz Earle stuff is super anyway so this stuff is bound to be a hit! X

      The rose scent is just lovely – really delicate. Liz Earle just get it spot on every time don’t they?

    This sounds wonderful. I am really suffering with my skin as I get older, something which really grates on me as I never had bad skin as a child. I am always on the lookout for a new facial goodie. Love it!

      It’s bizarre isn’t it – your teens are supposed to be the time for bad skin but I sailed through that only for it to catch up on me in my late 20s and into my 30s! I find that I have to stick to a strict skincare routine now or it really shows.

    The Cleanse and Polish is fantastic – makes such a difference to my skin when I use it. I hadn’t realised they did limited edition versions too, and citrussy scents are always a winner for me, although I hadn’t come across Cedrat either.

      Oh, the Limited Editions are always fantastic – I can’t remember the last time I bought the regular one! The fragrance is probably more rose than citrus I’d say, but the citrus just gives it that uplifting feel.

    I have never used this, but I am quite tempted to get it now. I am a sucker for make up and skincare items! My skin is quite sensitive too so this sounds like it might be a good match.

      I’m always loathe to recommend skincare products to people with sensitive skin as what works for someone might not work for someone else, but Liz Earle do seem to really understand how to soothe the skin and the ingredients in this one do sound great for problem skin. I really hope it’s a good match for you!

    I have to admit I love to read about any ideas for keeping my skin nice in this horrible weather! I have bad eczema anyway but this weather makes it worse! Will need to try this out. Thanks for the tip X

      I really hope it improves things for you Yvonne, eczema is so miserable. The cold weather is definitely a trigger for mine too.

    I used to use Cleanse and Polish when I was younger but stopped when I had the kids, think I might start using it again though because it worked wonders on my skin. This limited edition sounds lovely!

      I definitely notice the difference to my skin when I’m being a bit lazy and stop using it. I think it would be my desert island skincare choice!

    I haven’t used Cleanse and Polish before, I just never got around to it. This edition sounds lovely, maybe now is the time to give it a go!

      Oh definitely give this one a try – I love it! If you find a Liz Earle counter I’m sure they’d be happy to let you test it out, they’re always really friendly!

    This sounds just gorgeous. It’s really good that it hasn’t caused any effects with your eczema. It’s sounds like it’s worth giving a try

      Thanks – yes, it’s always a bit of a risk trying out a fragranced product when you have eczema, but this one is fab!
