Liz Earle Skin Boost Tonic

You have all heard me wax lyrical in the past over my love for Liz Earles skin care range, I am a huge fan of what Cleanse and Polish did for my skin years ago, as are a LOT of other bloggers! I have been branching out in the last few months with a couple of their other products, that are now firm staples in my routine and I thought it was high time I shared them!


I was sent the Skin Boost tonic and to try out at the start of winter, I didn't want to rush in and review as It is all too easy to love a product in the beginning, rave about it and then discover that your skin actually doesn't love it as much as you thought! But after using this steadily for a few months I can confirm, my skin loves it and these products have helped keep my skin much clearer and incredibly soft ( if I do say so myself!) this winter.

Firs up is the Instant Boost Skin Tonic I find there is always two sides to the Toner- do you need  it or not debate. But for me my oily skin benefits fantastically for having it, I find I need this step to help absorb any excess oil and keep my skin feel fresh and clean. What is important to keep in mind if you do decide to use one is that you use a gentle one, any strong toners with lots of chemicals and alcohol will just strip the skin of natural essential oils which will do damage not help it! 

I use it at night after cleansing, but also in the morning, I use it to wake my skin up, remove any dirt from the night and prep it for moisturiser and make up.  Before I was just using a mixture of generic cheapo toner I had lying round and a small amount of witch hazel combined in a spray bottle, since using Skin Boost though I have seen a marked difference in what a toner can do for the skin.


This is the kind of toner that has an ingredients list I like, alcohol free so non drying, organic aloe vera to soothe, and with calendula, vitamin E, cucumber and chamomile to keep skin soft and refreshed. For me this totally delivers, it costs £12.25 for the twist top bottle like I have here, or if you prefer a spritzer bottle the 200ml version is £12.50 which although does seem pricey in comparison to an average 'drug store' brand,you do get what you pay for here. I also really like that there are smaller options which is perfect for travelling or if you just want to try out a product before committing to the larger size, you can pick up a 50ml bottle for £5.

  1. I like the Liz Earle one, but my absolute favourite is this: http://uk.loccitane.com/FO/purifying-rice-toner.htm - I use the entire range now and my skin literally hasn't been so good since before puberty!

  2. I've been swithering about buying more from LE than just the cleanse n polish for ages but I'm still plodding away with my clinique anti-blemish toner. When it's done I might see if I can get a sample, that's DEFO a list of hero ingredients right there! xx

  3. I can't believe I still haven't tried any Liz Earle products yet, they always get amazing reviews! This sounds like a great product, will definitely have to treat myself to a few bits and pieces soon!
