Liz Earle Skincare

I tried out some products from the Liz Earle range a few years ago. I’ll be honest and admit I just thought they were basically good products and never used them again. I thought I didn’t need decent skincare at the time and whether it worked or not was irrelevant as my skin needed little or no looking after as far as I was concerned.

Now unfortunately, things are different; I am a little older (*cough), my skin has become extremely sensitive and as a result I am very particular about what I put on my face.

 

After much research and asking around my makeup artist friends, I am back with Liz Earle!
Without further ado here are the products I am using from the range at present, how they work and why I like them.
First up is the Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser. This comes with a muslin cloth used as part of a 2 step cleans. First, you massage the cleanser over your face, then after dampening the muslin cloth with lukewarm water, gently polish the cleanser off your face.
The cleanser is quite smooth and creamy, but not too heavy. It smells wonderfully fresh and effectively removes all your makeup whilst cleansing the skin.
After cleansing my face I use Instant Boost Skin Tonic. This smells absolutely amazing, like a mixture of camomile and cucumber. It’s incredibly refreshing to use after the cleanser and effectively cools and calms the skin. I find this particularly good as it helps reduce the oil on my face.
Last but not least, I apply Skin Repair Moisturiser, a lovely light cream which smells very fresh. When I sniff it I am reminded of my grandmothers Ponds Cold Cream, a lovely clean scent. The moisturiser disappears into the skin after a few minutes and leaves my skin feeling silky smooth and cared for.
Usually, I am not one for using more then one or two products from a particular range, and I never buy into “you must use all the products from the range together for it to be effective” etc. However, in this case I make an exception. I have to say I am really impressed with these products, very gentle on the skin, effective and affordable.

    >LE has a huge following and there was lots of controversy about a year ago when almond milk was removed as a key ingredient and the amount of cocoa butter was increased. Unfortunately for me that was the end of my love affair with C&P, the increase in cocoa butter may increase the softening affect but it lead to blocked pores. I do enjoy the Instant Boost and Skin Repair, and her newer moisturiser is great because it is fragrance free – and I admire the ethos of the brand but C&P has a big thumbs down for me now. Jan x

    >Hi Jan, thanks for the interesting comment. To be honest I didn't know about this but after doing a little reading on it this evening I am a surprised. I am also a fan of the brand ethos but removing the almond milk for cocoa butter is a cheap shortcut in my eyes, as well as resulting in the blocked pores and so on as you mentioned above. LE has fallen a little in my estimation now, what a shame. x
