If you’re a regular reader of this blog you’ll know I love Liz Earle.
One product I don’t tend to use of her’s though is moisturiser. I’ve used it in the past and it was far too rich to use on my now oily face until I spied that she did a light version of her fantastic skin repair moisturiser. A few weeks ago my acne was having a particularly bad flare up and I knew I needed to change up something about my skincare routine. I happened to wander into John Lewis and started perusing the Liz Earle counter. I didn’t really know what I was looking for, other than remembering I needed some more Instant Boost Skin Tonic. I’ve used her blemish treatment before and didn’t really think much of it so I knew it wasn’t that I was after. Then I spotted the light moisturiser and wondered if now was the time to try it.
The assistant came up to me and tried to advise me but as is the case now, they generally don’t tell me anything I don’t already know. I settled on trying the moisturiser and the toner I’d already remembered I needed.
I was just about to pay when something caught my eye.
It was £45 and the items (two of which were in the kit) came to £34.75. As I used both of the other items in the kit – the cleanse and polish (which i’d recently run out of and decided to give a dupe a try) and Eyebright lotion I figured to pay an extra £10 to get them both was definitely worth it. It also came with two muslim cloths so in total the kit was actually worth £63.50. Not a bad little saving there. The only frustrating thing was that the assistant didn’t bother to mention it!
Anyway, onto the moisturiser and I’m really liking it so far. One pump does my whole face and while I’m confident in how long Liz Earle products last because of the packaging style I have no idea how much is left in the pump. A couple of weeks ago I even went through a week of having clear skin! It was a nice change and although I’m in the midst of an evil break out now, I’ve no doubt that the new moisturiser helped get the skin clear in the first place. I haven’t been using it throughout my breakout though because although it’s a great at hydrating generally my spotty skin gets very dry and I usually need something a bit richer otherwise make up doesn’t apply properly at all.
This is definitely something I’ll be keeping in my skincare rotation. The next thing I’m tempted to try is the eye cream. I did ask the assistant if there were any samples of it for me to try and she replied that Liz Earle don’t do samples. This is a blatant lie. If you go into her standalone stores or order from her website you always get samples. But maybe eye cream samples aren’t a thing.
Have you tried this moisturiser? Any recommendations for spot prone skin?
