Another Save, Spend Splurge for you all today. You can read my previous Save, Spend, Splurge posts here. I’ve covered skincare, make up removers and dry shampoo now. Today I thought I’d cover Hot Cloth Cleansers. I’m sure most people have heard of the blogger favourite Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish. It’s not the cheapest so are any of the cheaper alternatives as good.
I’m comparing Along Came Betty Porefectly Clean Hot Cloth Cleanser from Tesco, No7 Radiance Boosting Hot Cloth Cleanser from Boots and Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish.
Along Came Betty (Tesco £5.99 Currently £3.00 for 100ml – which is what I paid) LINK
This has a very similar texture to the Liz Earle, it’s thick like the Liz Earle and has a really refreshing scent. I really love the smell of this. It’s soft on the skin and really removes make up. It doesn’t sting the eyes and removes the eye make up with ease. It also comes with one cloth which is as good quality as the Liz Earle one.
No7 Radiance Boosting Hot Cloth Cleanser (Boots £9.95 for 200ml) LINK
This was donated to me by L. She didn’t get on with it after trying Liz Earle. It’s a much wetter creamier texture which I find means you need more. Price per ml when the Along Came Betty isn’t on offer it works out cheaper but in my opinion you need to use more of it to obtain the same results so it does work out more expensive. First off it smells of roses which really puts me off. I don’t find it leaves my skin feeling as fresh. I also find it slips of my hand a lot if I use it in the shower and I’m not careful. I just really don’t enjoy this as much as the others. I do find this one really stings my eyes when used to remove eye make up.
Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish (£14.75 for 100ml) LINK
I choose the starter kit price for comparison as the others come with muslim cloths. Sold with or without the cloths (£13.25 for 100ml) it’s still a lot more expensive. I really do love this, it has a fresh eucalyptus scent which I really love as it leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean. My eye make up is easily removed. It’s a thick cream and I find one pump is enough, it does really last well.
Along Came Betty, No7, Liz Earle
As you can tell above the No7 cleanser isn’t one I enjoy as much. I honestly think the Along Came Betty cleanser is a fair match for the Liz Earle. Liz Earle does win slightly in smell stakes but I do also enjoy the Along Came Betty. Due to the price difference for me this time Save Wins. As much as I love the Liz Earle from now on I will be purchasing Along Came Betty for everyday use and letting my Liz Earle be used for when I’m feeling flush.
