The Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish is an all-time favorite for me, so when I received a sample of the Superskin Moisturizer in a Birchbox, I was super excited to give it a try. I don’t like to change up my skincare often, but because the sample pot was so big I felt like I could get a good understanding of how the product worked with my skin, and whether I would like it.
Because it’s a bit more difficult to get your hands on Liz Earle products in the US, I was hesitant to write this post and have held off for a while. However, you can buy Liz Earle at Birchbox.com as well as on us.lizearle.com, both of which often have discounts and perks that make buying even better. With each product I try from this brand I love it even more, so I wanted to share my experience with this moisturizer.
Slow the ticking, naturally, with our luxurious moisturiser, delicately scented with natural neroli. Visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for radiantly youthful-looking skin.
Is the Superskin Moisturizer all-natural?
The Superskin Moisturizer uses extracts from natural neroli, pomegranate and cranberry seed oil, and the ingredients are primarily plant-based with very few exceptions. Phenoxyethanol is used as a preservative, but has been found in Canadian and European markets as a low health-hazard. This ingredient has been labelled in European markets as being toxic for use around the lips and mouth, so if you do use this moisturizer, steer clear of your lips. However, this is the case with most other moisturizers found on the mass market. Stick to using natural balms on the lips like the Bite Beauty Everyday Agave Lip Mask.
Is this moisturizer good for dry skin?
I have dry skin, with very little oil in the T-zone. I have struggled in the past with eczema and steer clear of gel formulas. I love creamy moisturizers that are thin enough to sink in quickly, but thick enough to provide long-lasting hydration to my skin.
Outside of my holy grail First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream, there are few moisturizers that I have fell in love with upon first use. The Liz Earle Superskin Moisturizer actually made the cut! It has a thick formula that provides rich hydration throughout the day, but wasn’t so heavy that you couldn’t use it under makeup. It left my skin feeling fresh and dewy without leaving a greasy film, which is absolutely perfect for my skin.
What I don’t like about this moisturizer
The only things I don’t like about this moisturizer are that I can’t buy it through Sephora and the scent. I can get over the shopping experience, but the scent was a little bit harder to get past. The moisturizer has an earthy scent that I can only relate with mud. It’s relatively subtle, but didn’t really seem to go away until halfway through the day.
If you’re very sensitive to scents, I think you might have trouble with this moisturizer. Otherwise, I think that the ingredients, price and brand are all very nice.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this moisturizer and would even consider buying the full size in the future. I’m still hung up on First Aid Beauty, but would pick this up as an alternative on times when I’m restocking my Cleanse & Polish for nightly cleansing.
