Hi, Today I am sharing my skincare routine.
I suffer from really sensitive and reactive skin and feel really happy with the products that I am using right now. For many years I lived with sensitive and irritated skin. I tried all sorts of products with no luck, most of them making my skin worse. Then a few years ago I came across a review for Liz Earle products. I thought I would give them a try, and I have never looked back since. I use each product morning and evening and find that my skin has calmed down so much compared to how it used to be. I would recommend these products to anyone out there looking for a gentle and effective brand to calm and soothe the skin.
Liz Earle Cleanse And Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser
I start by washing my face with Liz Earle cleanse and polish hot cloth cleanser. I add a generous pump of this creamy cleanser straight onto my skin without wetting it first. It feels like a very thick cream when you apply it. I then rinse with hand hot water and it melts away leaving my skin refreshed and soothed. This is marketed as a product for all skin types and not specifically for sensitive skin, but it has worked wonders for me. The Liz Earle cleanse and polish hot cloth cleanser is made to use alongside the muslin cloths that they come with but I do not use them as they irritate my face. I simply rinse off the cleanser and then pat dry with a cotton towel.
Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic
After cleansing, I then spray a few sprays of the Liz Earle instant boost skin tonic. This is a lovely refreshing toner spray which soothes the skin and closes pores after cleansing. I have tried this in the other style of bottle where you add it to cotton wool and this although it’s the same product irritates me (I think it’s the application process) so I will always buy the spray.
Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturizer
After the Liz Earle Cleanse And Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser cleanse and spray, I wait a couple of minutes for my skin to dry fully then add a small amount of the Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturizer for dry sensitive skin. My skin is not really dry but I find this is the best cream as it’s not greasy at all and just sinks in. I have tried the lighter versions and they irritate me. I really love this cream but I would say the downside of it is that it does not contain an SPF. For many years I didn’t bother wearing one which is bad. I have now started to get some pigmentation marks so I now wear an extra SPF cream which I apply in the morning only.
The SPF I love is, La Roche-Posay anthelios XL. This is a super light sunscreen like none I have tried before. It is totally non greasy and weightless. It just disappears as soon as you apply. It’s the least reactive I have tried and I will continue to buy this for as long as I can. It’s actually made for sensitive skin or sun allergy. It has an SPF of 50 +.
Last on my list of products is the Liz Earle eyebright soothing eye lotion. I use this when I need an eye make up remover and only use when needed, as most of the time the cleanse and polish does get all of my eye make up off on its own. It’s also nice to saturate cotton pads and put them over your eyes when your in the bath. Very soothing.
And that’s what I do on a daily basis. Very simple and it suits me well. All products are available to buy separately or as a set. Liz Earle always have good promotions online and also like to include samples in with the orders which is nice.

The nightie is from Joules. It is called the Faye nightdress and has recently sold out but they always have lovely things on the website including the brand new collection of clothing and nightwear so always worth a look.
Thanks for reading, I hope you find this Liz Earle review useful. Gemma xx
