Review: Liz Earle skincare

A little while ago, ok a long while ago now, I was very kindly gifted two skincare products from Liz Earle. Thank so much ladies :) I've waited this long because I wanted to use it all up so I could give you all a balanced reviews. After all how can you tell what a product is like if you've only used it a few times eh? I am so sorry about the bad quality images, I somehow deleted the ones I wanted to use and have thrown the packaging away so I can't photograph them anymore :(

The first product I was gifted was the Skin Repair Moisturiser and it retails at £18.25 for a 50ml jar. I chose the cream suitable for dry and sensitive skin. First of all I love Liz Earle packaging, it's such a pretty colour and looks really nice on your dressing table. This cream was really thick which is what I look for in a cream, I like to feel my skin really soak it in. Smell is also really important to me, after all who wants to put a stinker on their face? Certainly not me! Luckily this smells lush, almost fruity. I think this is due to the avacado oil. I suffer with dry skin especially around my nose. I find if I don't use the right mosturiser it starts to look like i've been buying some of the wrong coke. Not a good look to be perfectly honest. But this completely combats that look which is perfect for me! The only downside is how quickly it ran out. I like to lather my face in moisturising meaning that face cream never last me that long. I'll be buying this again as soon as my funds allow. I do think it really pays - excuse the pun- to splash out on moisuriser as you can really feel the difference. My skin felt so supple and clean, i've really noticed the difference now i've had to go back to my Johnson one - it's good but it doesn't quite get as high marks as Liz Earle.

The second product I was gifted was the Instant Boost Skin Tonic spritzer and it retails at £12.50. I just didn't really get on with the spray. I first of all tried to spray it directly on my face but then I didn't like the feeling of the product dripping down my face. I then tried spraying it on and then immediately wiping it around my face with a cotton wool pad. Then finally I settled on spraying it directly onto a cotton wall pad and wiping it over my face. It does take about 6-7 sprays before i'm happy with the amount of product. The toner does feel lovely on my skin but I don't think it helps me anymore than my cheaper one does. I didn't find it as good for my skin as I had the moisturiser and Cleanse and Polish. I don't think i'll buy this again. However I have no complaints with it and like I said I do think it's a really nice toner.

Have you got a favourite Liz Earle product? I am a complete convert!


  1. I love Liz Earle products - the hot cloth cleanser is great. Agree with you that the packaging is quite pretty, too!


  2. I like Liz Earle, the moisturiser is really good and so is the cleanser. I would recommend the facial oil - that is very good. Have you ever tried Eve Lom? very expensive but excellent products, you should be able to get some samples from Space NK but I warn you....they are addictive!

  3. these products sound really good. I really want to try some Liz Earle products, especially the cleanse and polish xxx

  4. Can't say I've tried Liz Earle but I've certainly heard good things; maybe when I've got some spare cash I'll give it a try!
