I love Liz Earle products, I’d go as far to say that 2011 became the year that Liz Earle changed my opinion on their range as before I’d had reactions to their products with my overly sensitive skin and wouldn’t use them. After trying their Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser and finding it incredible (With no reactions) I was more than happy to try and couple more products when I was asked.
I have since mentioned the Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic in my November Favourites Video and the Liz Earle skin Repair Moisturiser (Dry/Sensitive) plus other times but never wrote reviews up on them. So I thought I would share with you my thoughts on the products and a little more information!
The Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic comes in a rather large bottle (Definitely value for money as I’ve not even reach half a bottle yet and have had it a few months!). I have the pump dispenser version which is 200ml but you can also get it in a bottle (So you can then apply it with cotton wool). I prefer the pump dispenser as it makes me feel more refreshed when I spray it directly onto my face. In fact my skin almost tingles as it dries making me feel more awake in myself.
This product is definitely a delight on the senses too. The smell of the Instant Boost Skin Tonic is amazing (But I think we can say that for most of the Liz Earle range!!). It is quite a sweet floral scent which lingers on your skin slightly as it dries. By no means overpowering, in fact I find it rather a relaxing scent yet awakening too when I use it first thing in the morning (Slight contradiction there but I hope you understand what I mean).
Unlike many toner style products this does not dry your skin out at all, in fact my skin always feels soft and smooth afterwards and ready for me to apply moisturiser. Sometimes I just spray it onto my face to freshen up and feel more awake. This product is going to be amazing in the Summer when its hot and I want to cool down!

Over all I was really impressed with the Instant Boost Skin Tonic. I have no reactions with my eczema or psoriasis and my skin didn’t break out either in spots. I loved the feeling of the tonic on my skin and the scent is really lovely.
The 200ml Spritzer bottle (Which I have) is £12.50 where as the bottle you can pour is £12.25. If you are concerned you may have a reaction to the product and don’t want to fork out that amount in one go, there is also sample/travel sizes available at 50ml for £5.00. These can all be bought directly from the Liz Earle website.
The Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser is another favourite moisturiser of mine. I never thought I would ever consider using anything other than Avene Rich Skin Recovery but have to say I find the Skin Repair Moisturiser by Liz Earle just as amazing – it just isn’t as moisturising on my very dry patches of skin/eczema.
The formula is quite thick and I find the best way to remove it from the pot (I prefer squeezy tubes) is with a spatula or even the end of a makeup brush. A little goes quite a long way and the cream glides onto your skin. I find the cream is absorbed into the skin quickly and your skin is left feeling smooth, soft and moisturised. For 80% of my skin this moisturiser is perfect, but the patches of my skin at present which have been quite sore and dry(My eczema is a little drier due to the cold weather) need a moisturiser which is a little heavier and this one doesn’t cut it. However in the Spring when we get better weather and Summer approaches I can see the moisturiser being just right for my skin.
The Skin Repair Moisturiser on my skin is thick and creamy
Rubbed into my skin you can see it is less dry and now looks moisturised
As a rule I don’t really like perfumed moisturisers as I find they don’t agree with my skin, Skin Repair Moisturiser has a light scent to it which I associate with moisturisers but can’t really describe. However I have had no reactions to this cream so for me it lives up to its claim of being for dry and sensitive skin.
If you would like to know the technical parts about the moisturiser (Ingredients and the likes), please check out the Liz Earle Website, there is a detailed description here of the Skin Repair Moisturiser.
The Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser is £18.25 for 50ml and is available in tube or jar format. Again if you are worried about spending out on a product that might not agree with your skin they also offer a 7ml tube for £7.
Liz Earle really do have some amazing products in their skin care ranges. I am impressed with the products I have tried and reviewed so far. I am also pleasantly surprised as many of the products are perfumed and yet my skin has had no reactions, soreness or problems. I especially like that many of their products are available in trial/smaller sizes so you don’t have to spend a lot of money out on something to see if its ok with your skin.
I really want to try some of the other products in the other ranges too; like I never knew they had hair care products and I would like to try more of the makeup as I’ve only ever used a Liz Earle creme blush and that was a very long time ago!
