I have been using Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser for the past two weeks. As always, no beating about the bush – I love it. I can’t believe I’ve had this is my drawer for nearly a year and hadn’t given it a decent try.
The reason it spent so long in my drawer is that when I first tested it it seemed quite rich, despite being for normal / combination skin. If you’re a regular reader or you watch my YouTube videos you will know that I am plagued by breakouts on my chin. I am always afraid to use heavy moisturisers on this area, fearing that it would lead to more clogged pores.
Imagine my surprise when I resurrected this moisturiser and found that after a week of use the acne on my chin looked better! I am absolutely delighted. My breakouts are thanks to hormones but also skin sensitivity. I don’t have oily skin, rather combination / sensitive. I wouldn’t recommend this moisturiser for those with oily skin, it would be too much.
What I like most is that it is light yet richly moisturising. It hasn’t blocked any pores and has actually eased the breakouts.
According to the tube, Skin Repair contains active ingredients – Borage oil, Avocado oil, Echinacea, Beta-Carotene and Vitamin E.
It doesn’t have a very strong scent, it actually smells quite natural – more like natural oils (not essential oils).
I bought this as part of a Liz Earle set on ebay (the seller sold it as an unwanted gift). I always check ebay for unwanted gift sets, I often find things I like for €10. I’m going to buy the full size from the Liz Earle site this afternoon. €19.75 for a 50ml jar or tube. I have the 15ml trial size right now (€7.50). Handy to try it out first instead of wasting money on a products that doesn’t suite your skin.
I’m still using Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish (click here to read my thoughts on this gem) morning and evening with my muslin cloth. It’s just plain fabulous.
Have you tried any Liz Earle products?
