Save vs Splurge | Liz Earle vs No7

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser vs No7 Beautiful Skin Hot Cloth Cleanser

I love both of these cleanser.  However one tends to be easier on my purse than the other.  Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser is a cult product to say the least.  I had heard of this for as long as I can remember.  So I picked this up early last year.  It came with a 'muslin' cloth which I don't use.  I have a stack of Primark face cloths (flannels) that I use instead.  
One pump of this cleanser is usually enough, which I rub on to dry skin (obviously with  makeup on) and then wipe off with a damp face cloth.  The texture of this cleanser is very creamy and takes off every last scrap of makeup.  Although to be on the safe side, I always remove my eye makeup using eye makeup removers beforehand.

No7 Beautiful Skin Hot Cloth Cleanser is used in the exact same way.  Again one pump does the job.  I find this slightly easier to spread just because the texture is not quite as think.  It doesn't sting my eyes or anything, so pretty gentle.

Now for the comparison:

- Liz Earle cleanser has a much creamier (thicker) texture than No7.  Think body butter vs body lotion.

- LE has quite a natural, earthy fragrance, which some people dislike (I don't mind this as it's not at all overpowering); No7 is fragranced, just like drugstore creams/lotions etc.

- LE is 100 ml compared to No7's 200 ml.

- No7 costs £9.95 (which will be £4.95 if you use the £5 off No7 vouchers that Boots often give out) whereas LE costs an eye-watering £13.25 (for 200ml, it will be £26.50!)

- The both take off makeup perfectly well.

I have recently run out of the Liz Earle cleanser, and I won't repurchase solely because of the price factor.  I feel as the No7 does the same job, it's crazy to pay the LE price!  Although I do love the LE cleanser.

Have you used these cleansers?  Which one's your favourite?
