My Introduction to Liz Earle Skincare

Last year, I took part in a skincare project run by Sophia from Tattooed Tealady and as a result I got the chance to put some of Liz Earle's products to the test. I wrote about the three products featured in today's post over on Sophia's blog, but only very briefly. Now that I've been using these products for months and months (I'm actually on my second tube of the Hot Cloth Cleanser) I feel like I'm in a really good position to give some in-depth reviews and to let you know if these skincare products are really worth investing in.

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser*

Liz Earle's Hot Cloth Cleanser is often talked about on blogs. It is a thick, cream cleanser that has a slightly minty/herbal scent that I apply to dry skin and really work it in with my fingers before removing with a damp muslin cloth. This cleanser is quite heavy so it can be a problem for some skin types and I've read reviews where people have mentioned it breaking them out. For me, this was never a problem but I wouldn't like to use it more than once a day. I loved using it in the evenings to remove make up and give my skin a deep clean. The thick formula made it very easy to deep cleanse and Liz Earle's Muslin Cloths (which usually come with the cleanser) are fantastic quality and help exfoliate the skin as you remove the product. I was very impressed with this cleanser and I would happily keep it as a part of my skin care routine. I think it would work especially well on those with dry skin because the formula is very nourishing but I have combination skin and I still enjoyed using it. A 200ml tube (as seen in my picture) costs £24.75 but you can get a 100ml tube with a muslin cloth for £14.75 (link here) if you're a first time user, and I think it is definitely worth the price tag as my 200ml tube lasted me about two months. 

Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritz*

I've recently gotten into toners in a big way - I think they're the best way to refresh and calm your skin after cleansing and they can actually make a big difference to the way your skin looks. This Tonic Spritz from Liz Earle is incredibly refreshing and I find it helps to both brighten and balance my skin. I'm always working to help give my complexion a little more radiance whilst also trying to tame how oily my t-zone gets. Liz Earle's products really help with both of these things and I've noticed a big difference in the look of my skin and in the way make-up wears on it. I love using this toner in conjunction with the cleanser, and would recommend trying them together. You can buy it in a variety of sizes, including a small 30ml bottle if you don't want to splash out on something expensive that you haven't tried before (link here).

Liz Earle Superskin Concentrate*

In my opinion this is the crowning glory of the trio. I have to admit, it took me a while to fall in love with this facial oil. At first the scent really put me off as it is very strong and quite 'herbal'. However, that aside, the effects of this facial oil are incredible. My skin is softer, smoother and brighter and I find that since I started using my Liz Earle skincare routine my skin has been less rosy and more even in tone. I've always struggled with very red cheeks and this has become less and less of a problem, something that I really can't thank Liz Earle skincare for more really. It is an expensive product, coming in at £40.50 for a 28ml bottle (link here), but I have come to really see the benefits of using it. I for one would definitely buy a bottle of this now I know how much it does for my skin and I would definitely recommend it.

Have you tried any of Liz Earle's skincare range?



  1. I bought a 15ml tube for £3.25 to try and I'm glad I didn't buy a 100ml C&P because my skin breaks out every time I use it! x

  2. I love the Instant Boost Skin Tonic. Although I'm trying a mini travel size of the Cleanse and Polish and it's nice... but I'm not completely sold! I like that it removes eye makeup though, which is a bit of a novelty for me! xx

  3. Super review! I really want to try Liz Earle products now....:-)) and the famous cleanse and polish :-)x

  4. I love all three of these, I can't imagine life without Liz Earle! x

  5. What a great trio of products. I love Liz Earle skincare, but I have never tried the Super skin Concentrate. It sounds like a wonderful facial oil
