Hey gals! I am back with another review :D. This is the last step for my C-T-M routine i.e. the moisturising part. Liz earle Skin Repair Moisturiser™ Normal/Combination is used after Liz Earle Cleanse & PolishHot Cloth Cleanser and Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic. Since I have dry combination skin which tends to get a bit oily in the summers and patchy and flaky dry in the winters I thought of trying out this variant out of the three Liz Earle provides for different skin types.
INGREDIENTS: Aqua (water), Caprylic/capric triglyceride, Persea gratissima (avocado) oil, Cetyl alcohol, Glycerin, Sorbitan stearate, Borago officinalis (borage) seed oil, Polysorbate 60, Cetyl esters, Triticum vulgare (wheat) germ oil, Echinacea purpurea (echinacea) extract, Sodium lactate, Humulus lupulus (hops) extract, Panthenol, Tocopherol (vitamin E), Tocopheryl acetate, Beta-carotene, Parfum (fragrance), Lactic acid, Citral, Citronellol, Geraniol, Limonene, Linalool, Alpha-isomethyl ionone, Dehydroacetic acid, Phenoxyethanol, Benzoic acid, Ethylhexylglycerin, Polyaminopropyl biguanide.
WHAT IT CLAIMS: “This perfectly balanced moisturiser softens, smoothes and conditions skin for a naturally healthy glow.
Rich in natural actives, including borage oil (a rich source of the essential fatty acid GLA) and natural antioxidants beta-carotene and vitamin E to replace lost moisture and help protect normal/combination skin.
Massage into face and neck, morning and night, after Instant Boost Skin Tonic. Naturally active ingredients include borage and avocado oil to intensively moisturise, smooth and protect.“ Check their website for more info.
MY EXPERIENCE: I have incorporated this as a night cream as I find it a tad heavy for using it in the day time in hot and humid climate (yes we are still getting occasional rain in scorching heat). However, with the winter months approaching I would be able to use it the daytime too. I have been using it for the past 1 week regularly and here is my view on this product.
WHAT I LIKED:
- It is a thick rich cream and you only require a pea-sized amount to cover the whole face and neck.
- It has got a very mild and pleasant smell which is very relaxing to the senses.
- Very moisturising and leaves skin soft and supple.
- I think the price is quite justified as the 50ml jar would last really long.
- It contains natural ingredients and is free from chemical preservatives or parabens.
WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE:
- It takes a little time to get absorbed fully.
- Tends to make skin oily in increased humidity.
- Non availability in India and relying on online shopping.
VERDICT: As you might have guessed by now, I am really satisfied with this product. If you are looking for a rich, moisturising cream for normal/combination skin then you must try this one.
RATINGS: 4.5 out of 5
