Step 2 and 3: LIZ EARLE Instant Boost Tonic and Skin Repair Moisturiser review

Hi everyone!

Today I would like to introduce you to steps 2 and 3 of my newly discovered beauty regime that I have been following for over two weeks and will probably stick to for a long time.

I wrote a review of the first step with Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish that I have been using for over a month (click here for a full review) and I can honestly say, it is absolutely amazing. The best cleanser I have ever used. It is gentle, yet very effective!

The next step after cleansing with the Hot Cloth Cleanser is toning your skin with the Instant Boost Skin Tonic. I decided to go with the spritzer format, as I like to use tonics during the day, to refresh my face. I use it at least twice a day. In the morning, after cleaning my face with micellar water, I give my face a spritz or two. In the evening after using the Hot Cloth Cleanser I use the tonic on a cotton wool pad. It leaves my skin perfectly clean and fresh and really gives it a boost of radiance. It smells really nice and refreshing, exactly what I expect from a natural product.

It is available in three sizes: 30ml,50ml and 200ml and you can pick from two formats: bottle or spritzer. I will be buying the smallest size for my Holiday- it is a 30 ml spritzer for £5.25, perfect travel/handbag size. 

The one I received is a 200ml spritzer and costs £13.00. A little goes a long way, so it is definitely worth every penny. link


SKIN REPAIR MOISTURISER- NORMAL/COMBINATION*

The last step of my routine with Liz Earle products is the Skin Repair Moisturiser. My skin is normal/combination (I have an oily T-zone and my cheeks are quite dry), so that's the type of cream I got sent to review. I must say-it was love at first sight/feel. It smells gorgeous and the formula is very light.  It also absorbs quickly - a very important factor for me.
This moisturiser softens, smoothes and conditions skin for a naturally healthy glow
It is a jar full of natural goodness, packed with antioxidants,vitamins and a highly moisturising avocado oil. It really helps to balance combination skin. I noticed that the dryness on my cheeks is hardly noticeable and my T-zone seems to be less oily.  

The only small complaint would be lack of SPF if you use it as a day cream. But on the other hand, it is meant to be used as a day and night cream so it doesn't need SPF. I always try to buy foundation with SPF, also if I know that I will be exposed to the sunlight for a longer period of time, I use sun protection.
I use this cream in the morning, after toning my face and neck with the Instant Boost Tonic and it works well as a base for foundation. If I am not wearing make up, I reach for it during the day as well.
At night time it really makes my skin feel nourished and soft and when I wake up I can't wait to repeat the whole routine allover again :)

The 50 ml jar cost £18.75 and just like the tonic and cleanser, it lasts for a long time. You need the tiniest amount to moisturise your full face. Travel size costs £7.25 for a 15 ml tube link


If you haven't tried Liz Earle Cleanse, Tone & Moisturise routine yet, I can honestly say: go for it! Many people swear by it and I became one of them :) If you don't want to buy full size products, there is plenty of smaller sizes to choose from at reasonable prices. My favourite must be the Hot Cloth Cleanser, I am still in love with it and can't stop raving about it, but I am loving the Tonic and moisturiser as well.
I included my Liz Earle products in the March favourites and I think they will stay on the list forever :)
