Last Thursday I went to an amazing Blogger Event held by Liz Earle at Filmore & Union. The event started at 6.30 pm and they demonstrated their skin care products and talked about the brand which was very informative.
Background to Liz Earle
Liz Earle started in 1995 and began selling their products on QVC in 1996. The first product they developed was Cleanse and Polish and this product has been their best seller ever since (this is a product that I will admit I only recently started using and I absolutely love it). All their products can be used by all skin types and they are 100% natural and cruelty free.
Their head office is based on the Isle of Wight and they are very proud to be able to have the cruelty-free bunny logo on all their products and this is one of the reasons they will never sell their products in China. Also if they cannot grow an ingredient then they will ethically resource the required ingredient or material, such as the cotton in their face cloths is ethically resourced from a farm in India. They are also proud of the fact that their packaging is recyclable and also the clear packaging on their products is made from, believe it or not, potato starch. Therefore it is 100% biodegradable.
Now to the products
Cleanse and Polish
This product is perfect for removing make up or just for a daily cleanser. The base of the product is Cocoa Butter with Chamomile and Eucalyptus oil. If you do use the Cleanse and Polish to remove your make up I would suggest doing a second cleanse as this will ensure that all of your make up is removed.
The clot provided with the product is make from 100% ethically resourced cotton and is fantastic to remove make up as it will exfoliate your skin as you remove the product.
If you want a product to start with I would therefore strongly recommend the Cleanse and Polish.
The toner is available in both a spritzer and also an ordinary bottle.
This product will renew the ph level in your skin after you have cleansed. This product can be used as a toner but also as a refreshing spritz during the day. It can be used over make up to freshen it up during the day if you want, I would not suggest for one minute using this as a setting spray but if your skin starts to feel a bit tight during the day (especially useful in the summer months) then you can spray this on your face and feel refreshed. The other use for the Skin Tonic is after you have been in the sun and if you have caught the sun on your face this can be used to calm the skin as one of the ingredients in the Skin Tonic is Aloe Vera.
This product can be used after you have cleansed and toned or as a cold compress if your eyes start to feel a bit tired. If this is how you want to use it then I would suggest putting some soaked cotton pads in the fridge and then when you need to put some compresses on your eyes you have these ready and chilled for use. (The Eyebright is the third bottle in this picture)
This is part of their “Superskin” range of products which is helps in slowing down the ageing process (you can never stop the ageing process but delaying a little is a brilliant idea!!). This contains Rosemary and Rose hip Extract. This is applied under the eye and on the brow bone. You should never apply eye cream on to your eyelids.
This can be used by all skin types and contains Persian Silk extract, Pomegranate and Rhubarb Extract. You only need to use 2 pumps of this therefore it will last you a long time and is worth the money. It is unfragranced and can be used morning and night and is always used before you use a moisturizer.
Speaking of moisturizer.
They have two different types of moisturizer:-
The SuperSkin range which is for combination/oily skin type and the Skin Repair range which is for dry/sensitive skin type.
The SuperSkin moisturizer is the one that I am currently trialling and so far I am loving it. The moisturizer contains natural neroli and Cranberry and Rosehip Seed Oils. I will admit that I was sceptical as I have only tried the skin tonic which I love using but I am impressed!!
The Skin Repair moisturizer contains Borage and Avocado Oil, Echinacea, Beta-Carotene and natural Vitamin E. This is a brilliant moisturizer if you suffer from dry/sensitive skin.
Liz Earle also has make-up, a body care range including their Orange Blossom hand cream, perfume and a range of products for men. Once again everything is 100% natural and 100% cruelty-free.
If you are not sure what you are looking for or whether a brand is cruelty-free there is a website you can check out and I have put a link to the website below
Anyway, I hope you enjoy reading this blog and find it helpful. There will be some exciting things happening in the near future with Lizanne-Style and I hope you will be patient with me while this happens and thank you for all your support.
All my love
