One tube of Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish is sold every 15 seconds, it's won over 125 awards and every year, since the QVC Customer Awards launched, it has been voted the best cleanser. It's safe to say that everybody bloody loves it. Including us. It's definitely one of the most popular beauty products in the country.

Well get excited, because there's now a version for your body.

Just as the original cleanser can transform your face, this body cleanser will keep the skin on your bod moisturised for 48 hours because of the same high content of plant oils. 'Rice bran oil, apricot kernel oil and sunflower seed oil are amazing for your skin,' explains James Wong, Liz Earle's in-house botanist.

Whilst some body washes can actually dry your skin out, this thick lather soothes and supports the skin's natural barrier. Once you've worked it in all over, grab the mitt (which is super similar to the muslin that you get with the face cleanser) and work it in some more for a touch of gentle exfoliation.

During their testing, the brand found that 90% of people who used the body cleanser said that their skin felt soft straight away. 87% said that their skin looked smoother too.

As we make our way into winter, this will make the ideal shower companion. In the colder months, the skin on your body can look a little blue and a little meh, that's because it needs TLC. Using this every day in the shower or bath will get rid of the top layers of dead skin that can give it that dull appearance. Using the mitt will bring blood flow to the top of skin as well making it look more pink and less grey.

Happy skin awaits.
