Quick Rave – Liz Earle Hair Products – Full Review coming soon!

haircare

Quick intro:

I’ve been using the Botanical Shine Shampoo (for all hair types) and the Botanical Shine Conditioner for oily hair for a little while now. I don’t have oily hair but I made a large order and got a full size of the product free of charge and as it’s so yummy, am working on using it all up before purchasing the one for either normal or damaged hair as I use a lot of heat on mine.

The shampoo is great as instead of using SLS and SLES, which are foaming agents present in most well-known hair cleansing products, they use a cleansing agent that comes from coconut yay! Many scalps are sensitive to SLS and SLES and this coconut and plant-based shampoo is suitable for all scalp and hair types. It’s even safe for coloured hair due to the lack of SLS and SLES as these can be harsh and are known to fade colour.

Initial Thoughts:

I am already a HUGE fan of Liz Earle and as you all know by now, the majority of the skincare products I use are from the brand so I was super excited to try the hair care goodies.

The shampoo is unlike the usual ‘better for you’ kind of shampoos as it lathers beautifully, smells deliciously natural and good for you BUT actually effectively cleans your hair. It. Is. Amazing.

The conditioner, despite not necessarily for my hair type as I got it free with a rather large order is also amazing! It smells yummy, leaves my hair super soft and shiny and doesn’t weigh it down either. Top Marks Liz Earle, as usual!

Liz Earle Deep Cleansing Mask

75ml tube starter kit

What is it?

A deep cleansing clay mask containing anti bacterial Manuka honey.

The Review

The texture of this mask is fairly smooth and thin, it feels cold on the skin and dries like most clay masks.

Since I’ve been using this mask I’ve noticed a real difference in my skin, just as most teens do, I suffer from occasional breakouts in my t-zone and since using this twice a week I’ve noticed this hardly ever happens anymore yay!

The mask doesn’t feel horribly tight on the face when it dries and washes off easily with the sponge in the starter kit (the kit comes with 2) leaving my skin smooth and fresh looking. The joy with this particular mask is that unlike a lot of the clay masks I’ve tried, it really does the job without drying out the skin which is amazing!

Worth the Money?

I thoroughly recommend getting the starter kit which comes with 2 sponges and 75ml of product for £14. I’ve been using this twice a week for about 2 1/2 months now and haven’t finished half the tube yet. For the results I’ve experienced and the fact that all the ingredients are natural, Liz Earle has done it again, definitely worth the money!

Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic

200ml bottle

What is it?

A gentle floral toner made with all natural ingredients.

 

The Review

If there’s one thing I’m a complete freak about it has to be taking care of my skin properly and this toner has become an absolute must have.

Not only does it smell yummy but it really does do what it says on the bottle. Place a few drops onto a cotton pad after cleansing and wipe over the face and neck to feel delightfully refreshed.

This toner closes pores and removes any residue from cleansing without drying out my skin, in fact it actually leaves a thin veil of moisture on the skin from the vitamin E that’s in it –  yay!

It is cool and brilliantly refreshing on the skin and does the job perfectly.

Worth the Money?

The 200ml bottle will set you back only £12.50 and lasts ages so it’s a yes from me! As with all Liz Earle products this product comes in different sizes and is even available in a spray form for refreshing yourself on the go, amazing!

Liz Earle Brightening Treatment Mask

Ok, so I will admit I have gone a bit crazy over Liz Earle products but as  full time model, my skin absolutely has to be in good condition and this is one of the many amazing products that I just can’t live without.

What is it?

This is a creamy brightening mask made from all natural ingredients that instantly brightens dull, tired skin.

The Review

On application this is a creamy white mask with a similar consistancy to the Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser with a pleasant and by no means overpowering scent. The mask does tingle a bit but I like it because this way I feel like it’s definitely doing something – and boy am I right!

I left it on for 5 minutes and promptly washed it off with a dampened muslin cloth (the kit comes with this) to reveal a beautifully fresh looking new me.

It left my skin soft and fresh faced and definitely gave me a glow. This mask is perfect for perking skin up in the morning or even as a quick ‘skin hangover’ fix after a night out.

Worth the Money?

It’s got to be a yes really hasn’t it?! Just £14.25 will buy you the starter kit which comes with a muslin cloth and a 50ml pump bottle of this amazing stuff.

Obviously though there are various other sizes and also tubes available if you prefer this to a pump. Brilliant!

As with all Liz Earle products, this is available from some department stores or the website : http://uk.lizearle.com/

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser

What is it?

This is a cream cleanser made from natural ingredients that promises to gently remove every day grime and make up from the face, including eye make up.

The Product

I ordered this product along with several others on the recommendation of a make up artist I was working with regularly. I had been using a cleansing milk and toner from Lancome and although that genuinely worked for me I needed something that was less expensive and just as effective.

As soon as my package arrived I was already impressed with the information booklet and Product Guide included, as well as this I also received a free 50ml sample of their Instant Boost Skin Tonic (a gentle floral toner) and everything was beautifully packaged in tissue paper.

The starter kit came with 100ml of the cream cleanser and 2 muslin cloths all in a pale blue zip up bag (very handy for storage and travel).

I have to say I expected big things from this cleanser and was not disappointed. I wear a full face of make up (although, a natural look) for work, unless i’m shooting and this includes waterproof mascara as I spend a lot of time on the tube. This cleanser took everything off first time.

The instructions say to cleanse once, pat dry and then cleanse again. I followed these instructions and my face had no trace of make up whatsoever. Not to mention it didn’t irritate my skin or my eyes even when removing my eye make up.

I have been using this product for nearly 4 weeks now and although I have fairly good, even skin anyway, even I can see a difference. I’m only 18 and so occasionally still get minor break outs of spots and these have dramatically reduced in frequency and severity. My complexion is brighter and where I would normally have slight redness in the areas prone to break outs, these have completely disappeared!

 

Worth the money?

Yes! Every single penny. And so is the Skin Boost Tonic and Skin Repair Moisturiser! (but more on that later).

This is an absolute must have for me now and I love the fact that all the ingredients are natural and responsibly sourced. If you’re nervous about spending £14.25 for the starter kit (100ml product and 2 cloths) then why not purchase the 30ml tube that comes with 1 muslin cloth for only £5.50?

You could even check out their ‘Travel and Try Me’ kits 🙂 go on, I promise you won’t regret it!

The products mentioned can be purchased from Liz Earle’s official website http://uk.lizearle.com/

I Love You Liz Earle

 

The Company

Liz Earle prides itself on using natural ingredients harvested in a sustainable way and never tests on animals. It is also a British company 🙂

My Experience

A make up artist recommended I try Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser as I had mentioned to her that I use Lancome cleansing milk and toner (which is rather expensive).

After having it confirmed that she uses it herself (and had amazing skin!) I ventured on to the website which I found very user friendly and easy to navigate. There is lots of information on which products are best for which skin type and the site is brilliant if you are new to a proper skincare regime and are unsure of which products to go for.

Each product has several different size options in the drop down box to choose from before adding it to your basket. These ranged from a year subscription or multi buy packs to starter kits and tester size versions of each product which I thought was brilliant. 

The first order I placed I thought I may as well try out some other products from the line. The products I ordered are as below:

  • Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser Starter kit at £14.95 which comes with 100ml of cleanser in a plastic bottle with pump and 2 muslin cloths
  • Gentle Face Exfoliator at £13.50 for 70ml
  • Deep Cleansing Mask Starter Kit at £14.00 which comes with 2 sponges

I chose the standard delivery option for £3.00 and my order arrived in about 3 days, far quicker than expected and everything was beautifully packaged in tissue paper with a pale blue sticker instead of tape.

Inside my box was also a Product Guide, a letter welcoming me to membership on the website and a hand signed thank you note for my order, so far I was very impressed!

Even better than this, I was also sent a free 50ml sample of the Instant Boost Skin Tonic (a lovely, gentle floral toner) which was so exciting!

The Products

I was so impressed with the products and service I received that I went ahead and made a second and then a third order … I have gone a little Liz Earle crazy but these are gentle, effective products that really do what they say on the bottle.
