The last two months, my skin has been really bad for the first time ever. I’m really starting to notice the first signs of ageing and stress on my skin and it’s been really bothering me. So as with most beauty dilemmas, I tweeted for recommendations on which reasonably priced skincare I should have a go with. I’m not exaggerating when I say that everyone recommended Liz Earle!
I’d not really heard of Liz Earle much until recently, from the hype of blogs. When you see the packaging it’s quite plain and not really something that would normally catch my eye, so it was great to be given the recommendations. I decided to take on the recommendations and popped to the local John Lewis counter for some advise. The member of staff that helped me was amazing, so chatty, friendly and informative, we chatted for ages and I ended up with a Essentials Try Me Kit, which was only around Â£22, it contained travel sizes of Cleanse & Polish, Skin Tonic, Brightening Mask and Repair Moisturiser and two Muslin Cloths in a cute zipper travel bag. A great price to try at.
So I’ve been using the products for about 4 days now and I’m SO impressed, I’ve never used anything so simple to use before and that actually makes an instant visible difference to my skin, here’s a breakdown on the routine and the products I’ve be trialing.
Step One: Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser.Â
This cleanser is in a cream form, which is very unusual, but makes it so easy andÂ pleasantÂ to use. Apply to dry skin and rub into your skin, it’s likeÂ applyingÂ a moisturiser and feels so nice on the skin, without the mess of suds or water. Once you’ve done rubbing in the product you use the Muslin Cloth soaked in warm water to polish the product off the skin, this removes make up and dirt as well as offering a gently exfoliant. It contains Eucalyptus forÂ purifyingÂ the skin and cocoa butter for softening the skin. The Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish is a multi-award winning product and definitely a beauty must have! I just love it, really impressed.
Step Two: Brightening Treatment Mask.
This isn’t an essential part of a daily routine, but is a great pick me up. You apply this to clean dry skin. Again, it’s a moisturiser texture again, so no mess. You massage this into the skin and leave for 30secs to 2mins and then remove with the damp muslin cloth again. You can feel how active this is, really feel it work, tingly on your skin. This product contains white clay, witch hazel, camphor oil, sweet almond oil and green mineral silt. Again, love this, really smooths andÂ brightensÂ the skin.
Step Three: Instant Boost Skin Tonic
This is the toning stage of the skincare routine, again this is another simple to use product, just apply to the skin with cotton wool and leave to sink it. Â It freshens, tones and moisturises the skin. Contains geranium, vitamin E, aloe vera and cucumber to soothe and refresh the skin. Again, totally love this.
Stage Four: Skin Repair Moisturiser
I’m really not a fan of moisturisers, it’s rare to find one I get on with, as I don’t like how heavy a lot of products feel on the skin and don’t like feeling sticky through out the day. Once I figured out the optimum amount this moisturiser was also lovely, still have the usual feeling of having product on, doesn’t fully sink in, but once I’ve applied make up over the top it works for me. Contains avocado and borage oil and lots of other nice things. Love this too.
My skin is already feeling very happy and I’m certain that I’ll be purchasing the full sizes when these run out. Many thanks, to all who recommended this line to me.
