What is it?

An all purpose moisturising beauty oil that can be used on the face, body and hair.

 

The Review:

This oil comes in lots of different smells varying from fruity ones to floral ones. It’s a really deeply nourishing mixture of nut oils that are all responsibly sourced and can be used on the face, body and hair.

I personally have not used it on my face for two reasons – the first being that anything that is fairly strongly scented I get nervous about putting on my face and the second is that I have combination skin so I don’t want or need to be putting anything that’s oily on it. If I had dry skin then I would definitely give it a go though as this oil sinks in beautifully and doesn’t just sit on the skin and leave you feeling sticky.

This product is amazing on the body, it moisturises the skin without leaving that annoying greasiness that I hate so much! I can apply the oil and put my clothes straight on without it being uncomfortable or staining my clothes and for once they don’t get stuck to me either yay! It sinks in so quickly and smells AMAZING! There is definitely a scent for everyone.

This oil also works on the hair really nicely too, helping to nourish and protect it from frizz. I like to put a really small amount in towel dried hair, focusing on the ends and find that this really helps it look smooth and frizz free. You can also use this on dry hair but be VERY careful with this. The first time I did this, I used too much and the ends just looked greasy 😦 You need a TINY amount on dry hair which you should rub between your hands first and spread evenly through the ends. I have discovered you can use this oil as a hair treatment by putting it into dry hair and sleeping it and washing it out in the morning, or just leave it in for 30/45 mins and wash out the same evening. This achieves super healthy, shiny, smooth looking hair.

Products Worth the Hype

Products that I feel are really worth the hype they get in the beauty community

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!
