When I was ordering from Liz Earle, I spoke to Louise and expressed my concerns about the irregularity of my skin. Also that i wanted to start an anti-aging regime -she suggested this cream and I trusted her.
When it arrived I was so impressed with the packaging- I mean -look at it!!! and it was packed so well… It also contained a book of all Liz earle Products which are damn impressive too 🙂

My Experience with the product: Honestly, when I received it, After the excitement subsided I saw that the product was for dry/matured skin and i was a bit disappointed . I even thought I’d send it over to mom But still the packaging and the cream looked so inviting that I had to try it out 🙂 So I did at night and followed the instructions on how to apply it- my skin absorbed it immediately and felt nice and supple. but when I got up in the morning I saw a sheen of oil/moisture on my face… feeling a bit sad I kept it in my drawer again thinking that I’ll use it in winters…. from the past week now that its getting cold- my skin started flaking and getting red. So I tried buffing it with a light scrub and then in the steam-filled bathroom, applied the moisturizer as instructed above- I swear to God- It just melted in my skin – my skin felt so soft and supple and all the flakes were subsided (not gone) in the 1st use itself. I still waited for a couple of hours and well, no shine 😀 some redness was still there but no shine- it sunk in so well and the massage helped me relax more.
– The do not test on animals.
– The moisturizer sinks into the skin so no thick-creamy feeling on the skin.
– Takes care of flaky skin and adds suppleness.
– No odor/smell.
– I felt my skin looked more toned.
– Availability-> its available only online or on QVC.
– I read some people saying its too thick for them: but seriously, it says its for dry skin and it clearly meant that its more moisturizing and is thicker than the average moisturizer. So acne prone beauties should probably stay away .
what I do is I apply it on the dry parts and I apply the normal one on the probable oily parts.. these days I just apply it all over because I’m having a bit of redness and flaky cheeks…
Seriously, i look flushed all the time 🙁
Overall Verdict: I totally recommend it. Dry skinners should use it all the time and oily skins like me – in winters or on those days when skin is partly flaky 🙁 The skin really needs to get its moisture or it leads to a lot of other problems- tried and tested 🙂
