Liz Earle Essentials 'Try me' Kit

You may remember I mentioned that I was keen to try products from the Liz Earle range in the hope that they would help with my skin problems. I have very spot prone, dry yet oily and senstive skin. I don't just get one spot, I get ten - it doesn't rain it only pours.

I remember watching Liz Earle on QVC in the mid ninties with my mum, I guess this was fairly early on in the formation of her company. So when I came across a few good reviews of her products lately I knew I had to try them.

After browsing around the website it soon became clear that the major selling point of this brand is their fantastic ethos. They are a british skincare brand based in the Isle of Wight, which isn't too far from me. They are really passionate about the ingredients that go into each product and responsibly source these (it has never really occured to me how much rubbish really goes into most other brands!) I had a quick glance over the ingredients list of the products and can't even begin to list all the fantastic oils, and other divine mixtures that are part of this range. I could ramble on forever I think so go ahead and check out Liz Earles principles here -

Being on a bit of a budget at the moment I decided to opt for the Essentials Try Me Kit. At £23.25 it wasn't bank breaking considering it contained trial sizes of the Hot Cloth Cleanser (the one I was really eager to try) Instant Boost Skin Tonic toner, Skin Repair in dry/sensitive, Skin Repar in normal/combination and a Muslin Cloth. All these products in the full sizes are very reasonably priced, but I simply didn't want to be stuck with big bottles of products I wouldn't use again if it turned out this skin care range wasn't for me

I will hold my hands up and admit I'm guilty for using facewipes most days as cleansing and toning seemed at bit too long winded for me. Using these products however seems more of a treat than a chore. After slathering on the Hot Cloth cleanser and wiping clean with the muslin cloth soaked in hot water I lightly swept over my face with a cotton wool pad doused in the Skin Tonic then lastly smoothed on the Skin Repair cream. Amazing. These guys even threw in a free face cream into my parcel! I am one happy customer.

I have followed this skin care routine for four days now and all I can say is 'wow!' I had high hopes for Liz Earle, but this has gone far above and beyond my expectations. Of course, like with anything in life, you don't see instant results but I feel that my skin is smoother, softer, I feel confident without make-up - even my mum pointed out how great my skin looked (she couldn't pin point exactly what it was however) and most spots are clearing up! I really am hooked. 

I realise I've confessed my love for Liz Earle for quite a few paragraphs now, so I'd like to point out that this isn't a sponsored post and that I just really love Liz!!

Have you tried any of these products of even tried a skincare range that you think might knock Liz off her well deserved throne?
