Liz Earle Mini's

liz earle shaving cream spot on mud mask

I love that Liz Earle offer the majority of their products in mini travel size so you can try them out before buying the full size.

From past experience with Bluebeards Revenge, for some reason men's shaving creams don't irritate my legs after shaving or cause my eczema to flare up. The consistency Liz Earle's Shaving Cream reminds me of the bluebeards revenge shaving cream but has the lovely Liz Earle scent which I much prefer. A mix of lavender, peppermint and cedar wood. I find this still doesn't work as well as Bluebeards so not sure I'll be buying the full size.

I specifically wanted the Deep Cleansing Mask in the smaller bottle as I wasn't sure if my skin would be ok with it. It does say not for sensitive skin but I planned to use in on my t-zone which isn't so sensitive.  I don't like the scent of this, I think it's the mix of clay and rose. As I only leave it on my skin for 5 minutes it's something I can put up with though. I apply a thin layer over my t-zone and leave on for 5 minutes. Depending on how thin/thick you apply it, it might dry or it might not. Once times up, I soak the sponge in hot water and wipe away. Then follow with normal toner and moisturiser steps. A pea sized amount is enough to cover my t-zone so this little tube will last me a long time as I only use this once a week.  I didn't notice a big difference immediately but after a couple of weeks my skin started to look clearer and my pores were smaller. The sponge is also acting as an exfoliant, similar to the muslin cloth.

The mini tube of the mask didn't come with a sponge so I bought these separately. I now have 4 which seems a bit excessive considering I'll get another two if I order the full sized tube. Obviously didn't think that through when I was ordering!

I've wanted to try Spot On for a long time but just never got round to actually buying it. I never usually like roller ball products as they're not very hygienic, especially when they're for spots. What I do with this though is roll a bit of product onto a clean finger and apply to any problem areas that way. If I need anymore product I'll apply some onto a different finger. Still not 100% hygienic but much better. I haven't tried this on minor cuts or bites but it's been working wonders on spots. I apply it at night and the next morning I can see a difference. They don't disappear completely but are considerably smaller and less noticeable. This is now a key part of my skin care routine.

What's your favourite product from Liz Earle? Or which do you want to try?

  1. I know what you mean about the roll on, not the most hygienic of methods.
    I have yet to buy Liz Earle, I have heard great reviews but never made the purchase.
    The product I think i'd buy first would be the Instant Boost Skin Tonic.
