Q: I've just turned 49 and have used Liz Earle's Cleanse & Polish for 10+ years. I've recently noticed my skin feels red and very sensitive after using it. I've just found out the formula has changed, now I'm scared to use it.
My fine lines around my eyes are greater and my eyes are more puffy. I've ordered the Decleor Cleansing Wash – as it removes eye make-up too and looks good for sensitive skin. Do you think I've ordered the right thing? Daren't use Liz Earle again.
Alison: Don't be scared to use Liz Earle again. The formula has changed, they've just removed the almond milk, but we haven't had any concerns or worries about it.
It might be that as you're getting older, your skin is acting a little differently to how you're used to. Also sometimes using a muslin cloth on a daily basis can be too much. So you could try sticking with your Cleanse & Polish and just removing it with damp cotton wool, as this texture is a lot softer and more gentle on your skin.
I am concerned about you changing from one all-in-one cleanser to another all-in-one cleanser. They are designed to be used with the same formula on your face, neck and eyes but I think you may be better using a separate eye make-up remover and toner while your skin is acting sensitively.
The Decleor Cleansing Water is fine for you to use. You can use this all over the face and on the eye area just apply very gently with dampened cotton wool. In fact, you could use this technique with the Cleanse & Polish too. Just see how it goes without using the muslin cloth.
