Liz Earle is one of my favourite brands of skincare. Their Mantra of “Cleanse Tone and Moisturise, twice a day, every day” is one that we could all use to improve our skin. I just love the natural botanic ingredients and the smell when you first apply it is really lovely and feels like it’s much more expensive than it is. I’m a big fan of the high-end skincare brand Yonka but unfortunately I can never justify splashing over €100 on a full skincare range from them (apart from their exfoliator which I love). But I have to say that Liz Earle is a perfect, and much cheaper substitute as far as I’m concerned.
I recently popped into their shop in Wilde & Green in Milltown, Dublin and bought the Cleanse and Polish Hot cloth Cleanser, which comes in a zipped bag with a couple of Muslin Cloths and the Instant Boost Skin Tonic which is a lovely toner to use after cleansing.
The idea behind the cleanser is that you smooth a layer on your face, rinse the muslin cloth in hot water and use to wipe off all your makeup and cleanse your skin. This means your skin is really clean without drying it out and it’s also slightly exfoliated due to the texture of the muslin cloths. I would have bought the moisturiser also but they didn’t have the right type for my skin in stock but they are amazing as well and for best results all 3 should be used together.
They have a special offer on their website http://ie.lizearle.com/skin-essentials-regime?homepage-pb for the month of October that if you buy their Skincare Essentials Regime (cleanser + muslin cloths, toner & moisturiser), you only pay €46.25 which is a saving of €31.25 from if you were to buy all products separately. Plus it comes with free P&P, and just to top it all off, you also get a 10ml Superskin Concentrate rollerball which is a great little boost for your skin, especially coming into the cold weather. You apply it before you go to bed and let it work it’s magic overnight and again, the smell of it is beautiful and kind of comforting too.
Also, ordering from the website means they usually throw in lots of lovely little samples for you to try and they are decent mini-bottle sized samples too, none of your tiny little sachets that you can only use once, which I love.
Top Tip: The muslin cloths are great but they get dirty and you often find you have to replace them after a few washes. I buy a pack of muslin squares (the type used for babies) in Mothercare or Tesco and they work just as well for much cheaper! Much better value than only buying the Liz Earle ones.
