Review: Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic & Skin Repair Moisturiser Light


A while ago I reviewed the amazing Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish. Louise from Liz Earle’s PR team was so kind to send me samples of Instant Boost Skin Tonic and Skin Repair Moisturiser Light to try out too.

INSTANT BOOST™ SKIN TONIC

LIZ EARLE SAYS
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.
PRICE
£12.25
Buy it online from Liz Earle.

FACTS AND FIGURES
This skin tonic is available in spritzer or bottle of various sizes. I was sent the 200 ml bottle. The bottle is very different, you need to twist the cap to open and dispense the product. The tiny hole gives you perfect control on how much to drop on your cotton pad.

MY OPINION
Liz Earle products are love at first glance because of their elegant and classy look. Even before trying anything out, you believe they will work. This toner like all Liz Earle products has a heavy scent, kind of like a perfume. While dabbing it on my face after using Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish I felt refreshed. Honestly. My skin looked smooth and supple. I think this is a wondrous toner. The best I have used so far. It has moisturising properties in it too. If your skin’s feeling parched and dried, just dab/spray this toner on your face and you will be hydrated without feeling all creamy. Best of all it is alcohol free and gentle plus suitable for all skin types. I am using this toner sparingly because it’s not available in Pakistan and I want it to last  forever :P

RATING
Fiver! If you indulge in only the best of, you need to have Liz Earle’s Instant Boost™ Skin Tonic.

SKIN REPAIR MOISTURISER™ LIGHT

LIZ EARLE SAYS
Light and gentle, this easily absorbed moisturising lotion is ideal for combination, oily or problem skin.
This finely balanced blend of naturally active skin-conditioning ingredients includes borage oil (a rich source of the essential fatty acid GLA), echinacea, hops, avocado oil, panthenol (pro-vitamin B5) and natural antioxidants beta-carotene and vitamin E to replace lost moisture and help protect your skin, leaving it soft and smooth with a naturally healthy glow.
PRICE
£18.25
Buy it online from Liz Earle.

FACTS AND FIGURES
Skin Repair Moisturiser Light is especially formulated for Combination/Oily skin. I have the 50 ml pump. It is also available in tube or size of 15ml.
Skin Repair Moisturiser is also available for Dry/Senstive skin and Normal/Combination skin.
This is how the pump looks like:

MY OPINION
I have a very tricky skin, and very few products suit me. I prefer to stay away from all kinds of rich moisturisers or I break out. I was really anxious to test out Liz Earle’s innovative Skin Repair Moisturiser Light. This too is heavily scented and unlike other Liz Earle scents that I love, this kind of gets to my head. It is different, and people who love strong scents may love it too, but I am a little picky, though I did get used to it. Liz Earle says to apply just a pea sized amount of this moisturizer. And they really mean it. It is very rich and a tiny amount is quite sufficient. I started using it as a night cream. On the first application, my skin felt heavy. Later, I did not experience any heaviness. It is not all greasy, absorbs well in your skin. My skin did look radiant in the morning but after a few days I started to break out. Bad luck for me, because I was really bent on in including this to my skin regime. The weather here has been really stuffy, so I plan not to give up and try it out in winters. I will update a review again on how it goes when it’s cold and your skin needs lots of hydration. But for now, all you with dry skin, Skin Repair Moisturiser is YOUR product.

RATING
Just not the product for my skin; at least in summers.

  13. I used Liz Earle for over a year and completely loved their products!! Only recently stopped because of something I am trying with my skin and also because their moisturiser (the one for very dry skin) started to make my face burn :( gutted!
    But glad the word is spreading, I absolutely love this brand!!
