Liz Earle Summer Essentials


Hi everyone!  I hope you are having a lovely Sunday! I am finally publishing a review of must have summer essentials from Liz Earle.  The products I am reviewing today are: Botanical Aftersun Gel, Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion, Foot Spritzer and Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer. 
I thought I will never get a chance to properly try these ;) The weather has been terrible for a couple of weeks, but surprisingly, the past few days were nice and sunny. I spent a lot of time outside with my baby boy and  caught some rays. I was covered with SPF30 though, so I didn't get a tan. All the products featured in this post are perfect for summer and help to sooth and hydrate the skin.


Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer* 200ml £13.00 link

"This heavenly floral-scented, non-drying toner refreshes, soothes and brightens your skin. Gentle and alcohol-free, it also adds a fine layer of moisture.  Naturally active ingredients include organic aloe vera to revitalise and soften and calendula, chamomile, cucumber and natural source vitamin E to soothe and refresh the skin"

 The Skin Boost Tonic Spritzer  is my favourite toner and the one I always reach for. 
It smells beautiful and is very soothing for my skin. I reviewed it already a couple of months ago here.
It is perfect for summer, if you want to refresh your face when sunbathing  or if you need to give your skin a boost of energy when you are on the go. The bottle is a generous size and the price is very affordable. For me it is a must have product and the one I will always repurchase.
 
Liz Earle Botanical Aftersun Gel* 200ml £13.50 link

"Our light, rehydrating gel cools, calms and nourishes sun-exposed skin by replacing lost moisture. Premium high-altitude lavender is soothing and cucumber refreshing, while antioxidant natural source vitamin E helps counteract the damaging effects of the sun’s rays.Massage into the skin as often as needed after exposure to the sun.Containing cooling organic aloe vera and refreshing cucumber, plus natural source vitamin E to help counteract the damaging effects of the sun’s rays.Suitable for all skin types"

I love the feeling of a cool gel on my skin, after a long day in the sun! It is amazing! I tried this gel yesterday and I love it! It cools the skin, makes it feel refreshed and hydrated. It is full of natural ingredients chosen especially to soothe the skin after exposure to the sun. 
I also used it on my legs a couple of times, when I needed something to relief the annoying pain I get after a long day on my feet. 

Liz Earle Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion* 150ml £10.25

"Wake up and revitalise eyes with cotton wool pads soaked in this gentle, soothing herbal lotion.
Non-oily, it is ideal for irritated eyes and suitable for contact lens wearers.Apply to a cotton wool pad to clean and wake up your eyes first thing. Naturally active ingredients include eyebright, witch hazel, organic aloe vera and cornflower to help tone, cool and refresh tired, puffy eyes.Suitable for all skin types" 

The Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion is something I always wanted to try. My eyes are very sensitive, constantly sore an itchy. I also get tears in my eyes for no reason all day. I finally found my saviour!
 I can't even describe what a difference it made to my eyes and my life! The itchiness and the feeling of tired eyes are gone! I use it in the morning on cotton wool pads to refresh and soothe my tired eyes. If i don't wear make up I try to use it in the afternoon as well. At night, I put a face mask on, I soak two cotton wool pads in the lotion and place them on my eyes for 15 minutes. It helps to reduce redness, puffiness, irritation and the appearance of dark circles. 
I am very impressed with Eyebright! If you are looking for something to soothe your sensitive eyes, this product will change your life. (Hopefully!) Well... It really changed mine!

Liz Earle Foot Spritzer* 75ml £7.75 link

"Spritz your feet, legs and ankles with a cooling and invigorating burst of nine essential oils. This fast drying spray fights odour-causing bacteria to help keep feet fresh. It’s the perfect wake-up for weary feet, leaving them revived and revitalised.Spray whenever you need cooling, instant relief. Follow with Liz Earle Foot Repair Moisturiser.Naturally active ingredients include cooling menthol and hydrating aloe vera. Peppermint and rosemary essential oils leave feet smelling sweet."

The last product I want to mention is the Foot Spritzer. I am a big fan of cooling sprays and mists for my feet. I don't like to use foot creams and gels. They usually leave a residue and I don't want that feeling on a hot summer day. The spritzer is perfect, it absorbs instantly and leaves my feet refreshed and smelling lovely! It also helps to fight bacteria and hydrates the skin. It costs only £7.75 so I will definitely buy a new bottle when it runs out.


I really enjoyed using all the products and they made the hot days easier to handle :)
My favourite must be the Eyebright lotion, because it really helped to soothe my sensitive eyes and became a part of my everyday routine.

  2. Great products from Liz Earle to keep you on track for summer :) I love their products but i'm not too keen on their scent. I'm not really into the whole herbal scented products therefore i don't think i will be repurchasing any products from them after trying out my travel kit recently. Glad you are loving the products though :) and yay for finally some sunshine in our lives hehe xoxo
