Review: Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser Normal/Combination

Liz Earle's Skin Repair Moisturiser is described as a "perfectly balanced moisturiser", and the product blurb claims that it softens, conditions, and smooths the skin to help promote a healthy, glowing complexion.  And that's pretty much it - no anti-ageing, no brightening; it's a plain and simple, basic moisturiser.

I've been trying out the normal/combination variety for about a month now, and that description is pretty much on the nail - my skin feels well moisturised, soft and smooth.  The little niggling dry patches I've noticed around my hairline feel less dry, and the slightly drier skin on my cheeks feels comfortable.  Impressively, I've noticed that whilst my dry bits are left feeling quenched and hydrated, my oily nose and chin are left feeling moisturised but overly so.  I've not noticed any excessive oiliness throughout the day, either.

As good as this product is at balancing moisture levels between different areas of the face, the melting, quickly absorbed texture of the cream makes it relatively easy to overapply, particularly if you're used to using a thick layer of moisturiser.  Whilst medium thickness itself, the cream is incredibly spreadable and silky, goes a lot further than you might expect.  I've had to school myself to apply only a little at a time, then to add more if if doesn't quite spread across my whole face.

All in all, this is an excellent, balancing moisturiser for normal to combination skin - provided you don't take a great big dollop out of the tub in one go.  At £17.60 for 50ml, it's not too expensive either - my tub lasted about two months, which is pretty reasonable for the price.  If you're looking for a no frills, effective moisturiser, this one is definitely worth a try.

If you'd like to try this product out for yourself, you'll find it at Liz Earle's website, where 50ml will cost £17.60 - you get a choice of a jar or tube, and both a smaller size and multi-packs are available.  What do you think?  Tried this moisturiser?  Like the simplicity of single function creams, or do you want more from your products?  Let us know in the comments!

  1. Liz Earle moisturiser smells good and feels nice on the skin. I prefer to use it on my 'no make up days' after a good cleanse with the Cleanse and Polish in the same range. I use a more matte moisturiser under foundation as there's no time in the morning to wait for it to sink in. If you use Liz Earle products for the whole routine of cleanse tone and moisturise it feels like you have just had a mini facial!
