Review: Liz Earle Deep Cleansing Mask & Smoothing Line Serum

Liz Earle never stops surprising me with its luxurious range of skin care products.

DEEP CLEANSING MASK

LIZ EARLE CLAIMS
Problem: oily, combination and problem-prone skin.
Solution: this highly concentrated clay and manuka honey mask helps draw out impurities and excess oil to leave skin balanced, calm and clear.
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.
Not suitable for sensitive skin

PRICE
£13.25
Buy from Liz Earle.


FACTS AND FIGURES
This mask comes with 2 sponges. It is available in 75ml and 15ml tubes. I got the the 75ml starter kit.

MY OPINION
As usual, the packing was very refined. The Deep Cleansing Mask came in a Liz Earle zip-up kit bag. The best thing about Liz Earle products is you get everything you need along with it. You don’t need to look around for sponges or muslin clothes. The entire package makes this product travel-friendly. The mask is closer to thin consistency and glides effortlessly. You do need a generous amount to cover your face. The smell, for once, is not heady and overwhelming as most Liz Earle products are. It is very subtle and refreshing like clay and honey. Once applied, I felt a comfortable tingling sensation. The sponges were very handy to remove the mask. After removing, my skin looked totally clear and soft. It did not dry out my face as most masks tend to. I had a radiant and healthy face for two days.

RATING
A GREAT mask to include in your skincare regime.

SMOOTHING LINE SERUM

LIZ EARLE CLAIMS
At night, use this light, oil-free serum after moisturising to help plump and firm skin around the eyes, lips, forehead and décolletage.
Gently pat over face and neck, paying special attention to the eye area.
Naturally Active ingredients include antioxidant grapeseed extract and soothing echinacea for softer, smoother skin.

PRICE
£13.75
Buy from Liz Earle.

FACTS AND FIGURES
This is a 10ml pump. Also available in 5ml tube.

MY OPINION
Previously I was using Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser Light which didn’t quite work out for me. Louise from Liz Earle was very kind to send me this Smoothing Lining Serum, to be used as a moisturiser. The only shock that comes is that the serum is a very tiny bottle, something you may like to use for your lines/wrinkles but not enough to last you as a moisturiser. The good part is that you just need a dash to pat around your face. Its consistency is like oil but NOT greasy. What impressed me was that I was totally expecting it to clog my pores and break me out but I have been using it for two weeks and all it has done is to provide perfect nourishment to my combination skin. It has a faint scent which is not even noticeable. I have no idea how it works on smoothing lines, but I have never before found a moisturiser that completely smoothes out drying parts of my skin and does not break out the oily zone. This surprisingly does wonders here. The only con is the price compared to the tiny amount you get.

RATING
The perfect moisturiser for oily-combination skin IF you can afford it.
