Liz Earle will leave your Skin Baby Soft!
Liz Earle skincare is a popular UK brand, that takes pride is providing quality natural active ingredients. With a number of award winning products, there is a something for everyone.
Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser
Talk about instant soft skin! This award winning cleanser is not your normal cleanser.
"We only make one cleanser because this formulation is the ultimate in concentrated yet gentle cleansing power and works on every age and skin type.
Our plant based cleanser has a two-phase action, phase one is the cleansing. Free from mineral oil, it has a rich and creamy texture and swiftly removes all traces of face and eye make up, even stubborn mascara. Phase two is the polishing. Polish off the cream using the pure muslin cloth to gently dislodge dead skin cells and help reveal clean, soft and radiant skin. Naturally active ingredients include eucalyptus and cocoa butter for smoother, clearer skin."-Liz Earle
I applied the thick cream cleanser to dry skin as instructed, then ran the muslin cloth under warm water and started buffing my skin in a circular motion. Rinse well with warm water. My skin felt amazing. My skin felt balanced and not stripped. The next day I woke up with a couple zits on my jawline, which was unfortunate. My skin is oily, sensitive and acne prone. I would not say this is suitable for all skin types, but for normal, non acne prone, dry, sensitive skin. The cocoa butter in this cleanser could be a disaster for severely acne prone skin.
Bottom Line: Great cleanser for non acne prone skin!
Instant Boost Skin Tonic
A extremely hydrating toner! Perfect for colder months when skin is dry or stripped from a harsh cleanser. A great option for a first toner, without harsh ingredients.
"This heavenly floral-scented, non-drying toner refreshes, soothes and brightens your skin. Gentle and alcohol-free, it also adds a fine layer of moisture. Pour onto a cotton wool pad and sweep over face and neck after using Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser. Alternatively spritz over face and body to revitalise at any time. Naturally active ingredients include organic aloe vera to revitalise and soften and calendula, chamomile, cucumber and natural source vitamin E to soothe and refresh the skin."-Liz Earle
Bottom Line: A calming toner packed with the finest ingredients! Leaves skin calm, refreshed and hydrated.
6.7 fl oz
Deep Cleansing Mask
I was drawn to this mask, because it contains manuka honey. This honey is known to be anti-microbrial, anti-inflammatory, and improves acne prone skin by killing and preventing bacteria buildup. Manuka is highly deep cleansing ingredient and contains enzymes that help regenerate healthy new skin.
The consistency of this green mask is more liquid then clay and smells very earthy. I applied a layer and let it dry before I applied 2 more layers. My pores looked refined and felt fresh & soft. Website states it's not suitable for sensitive skin, but it did not bother my sensitive skin. I also used as a over night spot treatment and loved it!
"This highly concentrated clay and manuka honey mask helps draw out impurities and excess oil to leave skin balanced and calm. Smooth over face and neck as an all over face treatment, or to target specific problem areas. Naturally active ingredients include green clay to draw out impurities, soothing manuka honey and propolis and rose-scented geranium to help tone and balance."-Liz Earle
Bottom line: A great weekly mask for deep cleansing any skin type or spot treat overnight.
