Beauty Review: Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser

I have a real thing about moisturisers, I am very picky and it has to be perfect for me to want to continue using it. Fussy I know! I am already a huge fan of Liz Earle’s gorgeous Cleanse and Polish after stealing it from my Mums beauty cabinet whilst at home. However, being on a student budget I haven’t had the chance to try the moisturiser yet, as the £18.75 price tag is a little steep for a poor third year whose money all goes on books and printing. Therefore I was so happy to get the chance to give this one a try to review for my University magazine and I was not disappointed.

Liz Earle describes the product as a ‘perfectly balanced moisturiser which softens, smoothes and conditions skin for a naturally healthy-looking glow’, which I completely agree with.

The first thing I noticed when applying the product was the smell. The natural ingredients of borage and avocado oils give the moisturiser that really comforting, nostalgic smell which reminded me of something that I couldn’t quite put my finger on. The cream was really thick and smooth and my skin felt automatically moisturised and refreshed. I am quite lucky to not have too many issues with my skin so the normal/combination cream was perfect for me. However, I always look for a moisturiser that is going to hydrate my skin and leave it glowing, but one that doesn’t clog my pores or leave a greasy residue...not too much to ask! But this one definitely did the trick, the natural antioxidants of beta-carotene and vitamin E work hard to replace lost moisture and help protect against dryness, and my skin didn’t feel greasy after using it. It formed a great base for make up and left my skin hydrated and soft to the touch.

All in all I genuinely have nothing bad to say about this product. The only slight negative is the price for me, which really isn’t that bad anyway, considering it is probably the same amount you would spend on a night out!

Liz Earle skincare is available online from http://uk.lizearle.com/ and also from many shops and department stores. I know what I am going to be adding to my Christmas list!
