Ok so here’s pt 2 of my Liz Earle reviews. Then I think we’ll have a day or two off while I post about other things. So first up is the Instant Boost Skin Tonic 200ml bottle which I understand is £11.50.
They say:

This heavenly scented, non-drying floral tonic revitalises, soothes and brightens. Gentle and alcohol-free it also adds a fine layer of moisture. With conditioning natural source vitamin E, hydrating organic aloe vera and rose-scented geranium. Cucumber extract is calming, cooling and toning. Calendula is healing and anti-inflammatory making it ideal for sensitive skin. Organic aloe vera juice moisturises, soothes and can even help relieve sunburn.nstant Boost Skin Tonic is the essential second stage of your daily regime:

Moisten a cotton wool pad and sweep over face and neck every morning and night after cleansing with Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser. This tones, brightens and hydrates your skin; follow by gently massaging in Skin Repair Moisturiser. Apply this light floral tonic to revitalise skin and add moisture after using one of our Special Treatment masks. Whether your skin is dehydrated, oily, dull or congested, the nourishing and brightening botanicals will help to leave your skin feeling soft and looking fresh for longer. It also primes your skin perfectly for Skin Repair Moisturiser. Try our spritzer after towel-drying skin to refresh yourself all over and boost moisture levels. Ideal for use after showering, bathing or swimming, wait for a minute before massaging in Nourishing Botanical Body Cream to help ‘seal in’ moisture.

I’ve only used this in the traditional manner, after cleansing or after using the Brightening Mask. I don’t have a huge amount to say about it really! I don’t normally use a toner but for the purpose of this review I’ve used it day and night. First thing to mention is the smell, I think it smells gorgeous and I find I rather like the ritual of cleanse, tone and moisturising. I’m not sure I really see any special benefits of using it on my skin but I like it so I see no reason not to continue! Recommended.
The second item I’m looking at today is Skin Repair Moisturiser for normal/combination skin. I have the 50ml jar which retails at £17.25.
This is what they say:
Rich in natural actives including borage (a potent source of the skin conditioning fatty acid GLA), avocado plus echinacea and antioxidant natural source vitamin E to help replace lost moisture in normal/combination skin, leaving it soft and smooth. Avocado oil, borage oil and echinacea help strengthen and natural-source vitamin E help protect to ensure total daily care for your skin.Carefully balanced for normal/combination skin types to both hydrate and protect face and neck, day and night.
This cream is lovely. I love the texture, I like the lack of (synthetic) perfume and I like how soft it leaves my skin. It feels really rich but absorbs pretty quickly which allows me to apply my make up fairly soon after. I would prefer to have tube which is handy as they do a 50ml tube for the same price. However, as lovely as it is, I don’t think this is the moisturiser for me. At 35 I’m looking for something specifically for my fine lines and wrinkles and I’m not sure this is the right one for me. I’d be looking for something specifically designed to tackle mature skin. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this though, it really is gorgeous and I think, very reasonably priced, especially as a little goes a long way so a pot should last a good long time.
