Last week I got my first introduction to Liz Earle skincare and makeup products at the Liz Earle counter in the main Boots Belfast store. It was a double celebration at the Liz Earle Belfast counter. Not only were they celebrating their first birthday but they were also celebrating the fact that they were one of the best performing stockists of Liz Earle in the UK! Unlike many of my other local blogger buddies I was a Liz Earle virgin but after taking a look at the Liz Earle website before the event I knew I wanted to find out more about the range.
The first product I took a look at was their award winning Cleanse and Polish, which is to be used with a muslin cloth as a hot cloth cleanser. This product is so popular that special edition versions are brought out every so often with different fragrances. Apparently they fly off the shelves! I was lucky enough to come away with a mini cleanse and polish, the instant boost skin tonic and a deep cleansing mask. I can’t wait to try them out and see if I see a noticeable different in my skin.
As well as the skincare, my eye was very much drawn towards the Liz Earle lipsticks and nail polishes. I’ve been on the look-out for a pretty coral nail polish and matching lipstick for a while and I loved the limited edition nail colour ‘Awakening’ and the lipstick in ‘Melon’. Apparently the nail polishes can last up to twelve days!
It appeals to me that Liz Earle source their ingredients responsibly and work very closely with their ingredient growers, harvesters and providers. They don’t use animal products or do animal testing. The nourishing ingredients they use include Manuka Honey, Vitamin E, aloe vera and chamomile.
And lets not forget the beautiful simplicity and freshness of their packaging. I think I’m well on my way to becoming a Liz Earle convert.
