Review: Liz Earle Skincare

Tuesday, 25 February 2014

Natural, vegan and good for the skin. This is exactly what I like to hear when it comes to skin care. Liz Earle is a brand that promises all these amazing things. I picked up a few of their products to see if they can offer me everything I want from a skincare brand.

Liz Earle is a brand I have dipped into before but I haven't tried many of their products. My first foray was the much hyped Hot Cloth Cleanser which I really loved. Recently I heard that the only counter in Ireland was in a shop close to where I lived so I popped in and picked up three products and have been testing them out.

First product is the Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic. For a high end product it was quite reasonably priced at €16 for 200ml. This is to be used as a toner after cleansing or as a spritz to freshen the face. The product smells divine. Its is very fresh and herby as it has aloe vera, cucumber and a number of other lovely smelling ingredients. I loved it as it wasn't stripping and felt very revitalizing. I find this a lovely product to use.

The Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser was a product I had heard mixed reviews about. At €23 for a 50 ml jar, it is reasonably priced and had no real scent. I actually have normal/dry skin but after being advised that the Liz Earle moisturisers are very rich I went with the normal/combination rather than the dry skin version. I was happy I did as it was an incredibly rich cream. I would advise only to use this in the evenings as it took a while to sink in and made my skin feel a little greasy. Although moisturising, it was too thick and greasy for me. 

I also picked up the Liz Earle Daily Eye Repair for €17.75. This is a light reflecting eye cream that brightens dark circles, has an SPF of 10 and reduces the appearance of fine lines. I really enjoyed this as my daytime eye cream. It sunk in fast and didn't effect my make-up. I'm not sure that it did much for my dark circles but the skin around my eyes felt moisturised and having SPF is always a great advantage.

I liked experimenting with these Liz Earle products. The tonic is a definite winner for me and I love the brands philosophy of natural, chemical free products. I also spotted the Liz Earle make-up counter too so I will definitely be going back to try out some of those products. Have you tried any of these product? Or do you have any suggestions for other Liz Earle products I should test out? Please leave me a comment.
