Skincare Saviour: Liz Earle Skincare Routine And Review

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish
Liz Earle Gentle Face Exfoliator
Liz Earle Deep Cleansing Mask
Liz Earle Sponges

Hello lovelies! Those of you who have read my previous skincare posts will know I have been struggling with some reoccurring blemishes. I often end up drifting from skincare brand to skincare brand looking for the one. I have realised that none of these brands are going to help me completely as I think these blemishes have been caused by hormones after I gave birth to my little boy so it was just wishful thinking putting my complete faith into a product. Now what I look for is something gentle on my skin as I have overloaded it with too many harsh chemicals. I want something that will make my other skin look healthy and bright. I can't remember the quote but Lisa Eldridge recently discussed how she likes to think of the skin around blemishes as beautiful and healthy so that is what I now aim to do. Now to get that beautiful skin, I of course needed a beautiful skincare routine too. 

Enter Liz Earle. When I met my boyfriend he, and everyone he knew were obsessed with Liz Earle. In fact, they still are and that is dedication in my eyes as I can't stick with the same routine for over a month. After my recent revelation I decided that I'd give it a try. There have been various bottles of Liz Earle floating around my bathroom and I have actually used the remainder of them up. I'm now down to a sample sized Cleanse and Polish (panic mode sets in). 


Cleanse and Polish

Now this is a best seller in skincare and there is a reason why. Cleanse and Polish is suitable for all skin types which is perfect as I have trouble determining exactly what my skin type is. Plus it means that I can share it with my boyfriend instead of spending double (every little helps right). I find Cleanse and Polish extremely gentle on my skin. It comes with a face cloth which adds to the gentleness as it "polishes" off your makeup and dead skin. If you wear makeup the cloths become quite grubby looking but they need washing regularly anyways. This step alone leaves my skin glowing and it feels really moisturised afterwards. I think it may be something to do with the cocoa butter and eucalyptus which are the two ingredients that seem to pop up in Liz Earle skincare. The prices differ on this depending on the size you choose. For a 50ml tube it costs £9.75.

Liz Earle Gentle Face Exfoliator

I have only recently added this one to my Liz Earle skincare routine but it definitely compliments Cleanse and Polish. It states that this is not suitable for sensitive skin but I'm unsure why as I find this the most gentle exfoliator that I have tried. Perhaps I've been using the equivalent of sandpaper in the beauty world?! It is refreshing not to have irritated skin from an exfoliator so I welcome this with open arms. I use this every few days just freshen my skin up and I haven't had any issues. I actually found that using this allowed topical treatments to get to work better which gives this product extra brownie points. After using, I'm again left with fabulously glowing skin which is amazingly super moisturised. Again the prices differ depending on the size, the 70ml retails at £15.75.

Liz Earle Deep Cleansing Mask

I've used this on and off for a while but mainly with other brands and it was a mediocre product. After choosing Liz Earle for other aspects of skincare, I thought that I would bring this back into my routine and I've found that it works so much better! This deep cleansing mask is designed for oily skin but there are other treatments you can find depending on your skin type. For example I bought my boyfriend a Liz Earle hydrating treatment and he loved it. With the mask comes two sponges to remove it after use. The mask itself is quite liquid like if that makes sense although it quickly dries into a clay mask. I found that sticking to the required 15 minutes was better than leaving it on longer. Who knew that abiding by the rules got you anywhere?  After using the sponges to remove the product my face feels squeaky clean and I actually noticed less oiliness especially on my forehead for the next few days. The 75ml retails at £15.75.

I'm making a pact of staying with gentle skincare. These products make my skin feel happy therefore they make me happy. The products are so complimentary to each other, I'm desperate to try her toner and moisturiser next. 


Have you tried any Liz Earle products?

  2. Love this post, I am a huge Liz Earle fan! I currently use the three step skincare - the Hot Cloth Cleanser, Skin Tonic and the Skin Repair Moisturiser. I absolutely love the Hot Cloth Cleanser, my face feels so fresh. But the Skin Repair Moisturiser is definitely my favourite it leaves my skin feeling nourished and glowing for hours, and it is thick but doesn't feel greasy, which I like :)
