I’m hoping everyone had a good new year? I spent mine watching Shrek with my mum who loves animations. Anyway I decided to kick off this years first blog post with a skin care review because I know someone out there has a skincare resolution. For the past 2 months ( well since I moved back to London), I’ve been of a skincare craze. I found myself reading ALOT Of skincare product reviews.
Back to the review...............If you follow me of Instagram, you would definitely recognise these products. I started using liz Earle products because I needed a cream cleanser and the only one I could think ( make skin was dry and sun burnt) of was the CLEANSE & POLISH from liz Earle. I got the TRY-ME KIT for my mum two summers ago and she has since been loyal to their products ( I could not question her loyalty because her skin looks AWESOME). Anywoo, since I was clearly in Nigeria, obviously I had to get my mum to send me products.
If there is one thing I love about Liz earle for is their monthly offers. Every month they have a like a gift set with your essential products (picture above) & an extra full size complimentary product for £41.00. As a customer this makes a lot of sense to me because this means I get to try out of products from the brand for less.
I’m sure you could tell from the first couple of lines that this is going to be a positive review. Liz Earle’s pride product is their CLEANSE & POLISH hot cloth cleanser. This creamy cleanser has won a ton of well deserved awards. Although I have combination to oily skin, the product works for all skin types and ages. Cleanse & polish is a cleanser that removes dirt and makeup (even eye makeup) from the skin. It leaves your skin feeling clean, fresh and soft. The cleanser is accompanied with a muslin wash cloth (not featured in the picture). Basically you massage the cleanser on to dry skin and then soak the muslin cloth in hand hot water, use the cloth to take off the product. For me this is good because using muslin cloths is a gentle way to exfoliate your skin. This is already a permanent product in my skin care regime. I’ve discovered that my skin likes products with simple ingredients ............. nothing that will interfere with its natural healing process. Over time my skin has really improved in appearance and texture. If your looking for a natural gentle cleanser that “WORKS” this is the cleanser for you.
Hmmmm the toner, to be honest I’m not a toner kind of lady because I’ve never really understood their existence. HOWEVER!!!!! all that changed when I tried the INSTANT BOOST SKIN TONER. Its not those very harsh toner that almost feels like your getting a chemical peel when it lands on your skin. The Liz Earle skin tonic is more like the ray of sun shine kind of toner lol. Its a very soothing toner on the skin. It takes off any left over dirt on the skin and somehow restores the skins nature moisture . I really like this toner especially around my eyes. Sometimes after taking off eye makeup the eye area can feel a tad dry but the toner helps fix it. Also it leaves my skin soft and radiant. The ONLY thing I do not like about the toner is the SMELL, I don’t like rosey/ floral scents in my skincare or makeup products, I think its unnecessary and some of us have sensitive noses but all the same I will buy it again and again.
Let me just say I have a love-hate relationship with this moisturiser but lets talk about the LOVE relationship first. I like this moisturiser because it does everything it says but I HATE it because after an hour my skin gets sooooo shiny .............let me mention that it does not work well under my makeup. So I only use it on the days I know I will not be slapping on some brown cake AKA foundation. I dont like to bash products that do not work for because I do not want to discourage others but I will not be repurchasing this moisturiser for sure.
If you really want to try out LIZ EARLE they offer mini TRY-ME KITS at good prices. This way you do not have to spend a truck load of money on something you may not like. Also remember that what works for MISS A might not WORK for MISS B. Skincare is an individuality thing.......everyones experience is different.
Lastly Liz Earle is a British brand (wooohooo) so my British beauties you dont have to hustle for this brand as its just at your backyard. To my Nigerian beauties unfortunately its a case of asking someone abroad to get you some products :(.......but trust me its worth the hassle because the products work well with our tropical weather.
