Rodial Stem Cell Super-Food Cleanser - Review

I'm having a bit of a cleansing addiction at the moment. I have several currently on the go at once, but I felt like I needed something a bit more akin to my old favourite Liz Earle to help nourish my skin a little more.

This is where my enormous 200ml tub of Rodial Stem Cell Super Food Cleanser comes in.
I purchased this little beauty from QVC as it was under £23 which is a massive saving on the usual high street retail price of £30 (with the added bonus of being able to send it back to QVC if it didn't agree with my skin!).

The cleanser certainly seems to work in a similar manner to the Cleanse & Polish from Liz Earle, effectively melting away dirt, grime and in my case, a full days worth of make-up with little more than a quick swipe of the muslin cloth which is included in the box.
The consistency and the amount of product you're required to use is also similar, however where the two seem to differ is both the science behind the product and the scent.

You may have noted this is a stem cell cleanser with the Alp Rose being used to boost your skins vitality and aid with regeneration.  As I am sure you can guess, the predominant smell when using this product is of roses but this isn't harsh enough to put me off using it.

In addition, not only is this packed with anti-oxidants, but Rose Hip Seed Oil, Coconut Oil and Cocoa Butter help melt away dirt and grime whilst at the same time, providing your skin with a lovely nourishing treat.  

You can use this in several ways:
  1. Massage a small dollop all over your face (I did use this over my eyes to remove my mascara and there was no irritation; this obviously doesn't automatically mean your skin will be the same so please be careful!) and rinse off with warm water in the shower.
  2. As above, but rub off with either the enclosed muslin cloth or alternatively a flannel, the plus here being your skin is getting some light exfoliation.
  3. Pop a little on a dry muslin cloth and massage into dry skin for more of an exfoliating treat, then rinse off.
I've used it in all of the above ways and I am loving how soft this leaves my skin feeling.  I've taken to using this three to four times a week in the evenings and really working it into my skin, especially around any dry areas, leaving it for 30 seconds to sink in before rinsing off and toning etc. as normal.  I am already seeing a difference in my skins clarity and it's staying nice and supple despite the chillier climate.

If my review above isn't enough to convince you, then just look around Google for a while as I'm yet to read a bad review.  Given the price point, I am seriously contemplating replacing my Liz Earle cleanser for good. The 200ml pot means this will certainly be floating around my bathroom for a good few months before it needs replacing.

Do you use different cleansers during the colder months to help keep your skin healthy and hydrated?


  1. I've been looking for a replacement to Liz Earle too and this product sounds amazing. As soon as I run out of my current cleanser, I'll defo be looking into purchasing this one. Thanks.


  2. It really is wonderful, I'll definately be repurchasing. Like I say, if you're tempted I would recommend purchasing from QVC, it's got one of the cheapest prices I've spotted.

    Hope you love it as much as I do!

  3. Hi :)) Just purchased mine, should try they sell it for £15 and it's a very good trustworthy website! I've purchased a lot of stuff from them and all in good quality.
