Liz Earle Limited Edition Lavender and Vetiver Cleanse and Polish

Hi beauties,

Today I have THE best cleanser I have ever tried. It’s my favourite Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish, but this version is made with Lavender and Vetiver.

The cleanser essentially is the same, still the cocoa butter base, it’s the fragrance that has changed and I have to say it’s the most divine scent I’ve ever smelled! Beautifully calming lavender but with woody Vetiver that gives a fresh and sophisticated edge.

This limited edition is my favourite Liz Earle have done, I have already asked them to add this to the range! I think I might have to buy another one before it disappears into the ether!

Limited Edition Lavender and Vetiver is £21.50 for a 150ml pump bottle with two muslin cloths, available from http://www.lizearle.com

Till next time,

Liz Earle Step In To Superskin TSV

Hi lovelies,

I’ve another recent TSV from QVCUK and Liz Earle, 4 Piece Step Into Superskin. Regular readers will know that many products from Liz Earle are staples for me and this collection is ideal. It contains:

  • 200ml pump Cleanse & Polish
  • 200ml bottle Instant Boost Skin Tonic
  • 15ml bottle of Superskin Eye Cream
  • 50ml jar of Superskin Moisturiser Original or with Natural Neroli

The exciting thing about this offer was the inclusion of the newly launched Superskin Eye cream. I have been hearing great things about this so I can’t wait to try it. I am being good at the moment and using my current eye product up before I open it!

Also you had a choice of the Original moisturiser or the Natural Neroli version, I chose the fragranced option as it’s so beautiful. I have oily skin but I really enjoy using this moisturiser, not only for the gorgeous scent. It is rich and luxurious although not greasy and my skin reacts well to it. I use it as a night cream in the warmer months and when it comes to winter time and it’s very cold I can use it during the day time too.

Cleanse & Polish and Instant Boost Skin Tonic are total staples for me and both are a joy to use. I have used both for many years now, Cleanse & P0lish features in my daily skincare routines that I post on Instagram (@lucydorling1980 if you want to take a nose through what I use!) and I so love using it. My skin always feels so clean and comfortable and I love the refreshing fragrance. Instant Boost Skin Tonic I decant into a spray bottle, I much prefer using toners in this way as I find it easier. The scent is amazing and I always feel so fresh and uplifted afterwards.

This set is perfect, Superskin is a luxury collection, separately both the moisturiser and eye cream are out of my usual budget so I always appreciate QVC’s pricing that enables me to enjoy these wonderful products on a daily basis. 

On Saturday 16th July there is another TSV featuring the Cleanse, Tone, Moisturise with Skin Repair Moisturiser with Shampoo & Conditioner and Orange Flower Botanical Body Wash, the set is also available on Auto Delivery. Tune into QVC from 12am and throughout the day.

Till next time,

Cleansers

Good afternoon everyone, today I wanted to talk about my current cleansers that am using. You may think I am a bit strange (it has been said before lol) but I really look forward to cleansing and starting my regime on a daily basis.

In the morning I love a wash off cleanser that I can easily use in the shower. I recently bought Soap & Glory Face Soap and Clarity Vitamin C Facial Wash. It’s a gel consistency with small beads that make your skin feel so smooth, it is a non SLS formula which is an ingredient that I like to avoid (I am always checking ingredient listings of products) I take a small walnut size amount and rub it over my skin. As I said before, it makes your skin feel so smooth without the squeaky tight feeling you can get with some foaming cleansers.

If I wear make up, I love to take it off first with Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. When I first tried this product I was amazed at how quickly and easily it took off eye makeup and it’s become a regular part of my cleansing routine. I’ve not tried any other Micellar water as I’m so impressed with the Garnier version I have stuck with it. I also use it first thing in the morning when my sleepy eyes are sore, I put some on two cotton pads and pop them on my eyes for 10 minutes.

The next three cleansers I rotate as my first or second cleanse depending on what texture I want to use that evening.

What can I say about Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish that already hasn’t been said? I use this beautiful creamy cleanser every evening, C&P is a product I always have in my cleansing routine and I can’t imagine not having it. I find it so easy to use and my skin always feels beautiful after I have used it. The smell is so fresh and uplifting but also comforting, it’s a true staple. As I am sure are most of you will know, it’s a thick cream cocoa butter based cleanser that gently removes makeup and cleans your skin at the same time. I use it with the muslin cloth that comes with it and that smooth and exfoliates your skin each time you use it.

SBC Collagen 3-in-1 cleanser is one that you may not be familiar with, SBC is found at QVCUK they are a fantastic brand that do gorgeous treatment gels, shower products and skincare. This cleanser is a lighter milk-like texture and like Cleanse & Polish is also cocoa butter based. It has a light grapefruit/fruity scent that makes quick and easy removal of any makeup you use and gets rid of all the daily dirt and grime our skin picks up. I use 2-3 pumps usually as my second cleanse because it is the lighter texture and remove it with a warm muslin cloth. It’s really economical to use, very affordable and another product that I do gravitate back to.

The last cleanser is the beautiful Elemis Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm. It is a product that is more expensive than I would usually be able to afford to buy, but thanks to QVCUK and their fantastic value I was able to take advantage of getting the limited edition supersize in January this year. I don’t use it every day, I would say 4 nights out of 7. If I feel I need a little more comfort and hydration then I use the balm. The fragrance is heavely, luxurious and I always feel so pampered when I’ve used it. I take some more time working the balm into my skin using some massage techniques and enjoying the smell and beautiful texture. It’s a very feel good product, I will be gutted when it’s finished but I so enjoy using it so may have to persuade myself to buy it again!!

So those are my favourite cleansers, which are yours? Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

Till next time,
