As someone with chronically dry and dehydrated skin, I’m always on the lookout for new products which will help to calm and hydrate. Even though the weather isn’t feeling as cold and harsh as usual, I still like to add as much hydration to my routine as possible.
If, like me, your skin is prone to any sort of dryness or sensitivity, I would seriously recommend trying it out – I’ve been using it nightly, and I have just been loving it! Every evening, after a good cleansing session, I take a drop or two of the oil in my fingertips, warm it up a little then press into skin.
I then give myself something of a mini-facial massage, either using my fingers or my little butterfly. It lets the Superskin Concentrate really soak into my skin, and I can feel if any areas need an extra drop or two. I just love how quickly the formula sinks in, leaving my face and neck feeling soothed and nourished, and the scent is just delightful.
Filled with skin saviours like Hazelnut, Rosehip, Lavender, Neroli, Avocado and Argan Oils, as well as Vitamin E, Liz Earle’s Superskin Concentrate couldn’t really be better for skin. I’ve really noticed a difference in my skin the mornings after using the Concentrate – it feels more supple and smoother. I’ve even dabbled in adding the tiniest drop to my foundation on days where my skin is feeling extra parched – it adds a really beautiful subtle radiance which lasted all day. If you’re headed off somewhere hot this summer, I would also recommend tucking a bottle of this into your case – it’s perfect for healing skin that’s seen a little too much of the sun!
Liz Earle Superskin Concentrate is priced at £60.00 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
As you can probably tell, I’m very much in love with summer right now. I’ve abandoned my usual dark neutral wardrobe in favor of crisp whites and pops of colour, and of course, my beauty picks have changed up too!
So, rather than plumping for my regular baby pinks and beiges, my mani this week featured the most gorgeous coral shade, courtesy of Liz Earle’s Strengthening Nail Colour in Awakening. It’s a beautiful orange-tinged peachy colour which is gorgeous on tanned fingers, and makes much more of a statement than my regular nudes, without feeling too bright or in your face. Unlike most other polishes, Lis Earle’s contain avocado and borage oils which work to strengthen your nails as you wear the colour.
The formula is a little thinner than I’m used to, but it only took two coats for an even, opaque, glossy finish which I then topped with my Chanel top coat (see here). I’ve had multiple girls coming up to me asking where my polish is from, and it’s lasted perfectly for the past 3 days (an age for me)!
The polish costs £7.50 and is available here.
One of my absolute, holy-grail, always in my stash cleansers is the much-lauded Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser. I’m not the only one who’s obsessed with it – the cleanser has won an incredible beauty awards for being an all-round genius product!
If you’re contemplating trying the cleanser (and seriously, you should!) I would hightail it to the Liz Earle website. To celebrate their incredible achievement, they are selling a full sized bottle of the cleanser, as well as two of their muslin cloths for a tiny £9.50! Considering that it normally retails for £14.75, it’s a good saving! (Not to mention you get a pretty box)
I’m completely obsessed with the cleanser, it’s one of those products which feels like a spa treatment in a bottle. After dampening my skin, I massage a pump or two into my face, neck and décolletage and leave it for a minute or two.
It smells absolutely divine – the eucalyptus oil is definitely the strongest note, but it isn’t overbearing or ‘too much.’ Instead it just feels very calming and refreshing. The cleanser doesn’t foam, so I then rub it into the skin, and my makeup completely melts away. Despite being gentle enough to use on sensitive skin, the cleanser even works its magic on eye makeup!
After a few minutes, and a little facial massage, I run one of the muslins under hot water, wring it out, then use it as I would a normal flannel. The muslin works as a gentle exfoliator, and it leaves my skin feeling so fresh and clean, rather than stripped or dry. Whenever I’m suffering from a breakout, hormonal or otherwise, all I need to do is crack out my trusty Liz Earle and within a day or two, my skin is crystal-clear!
The cleanser is available for £9.50 until 2pm tomorrow and you can get it here.
I’m a complete sucker for lip gloss – and lip glosses which come packaged as prettily as this Liz Earle duo? Consider me sold. View Post
