Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic

I've being blogging for over a year now and I find it odd that I haven't yet featured a product from Liz Earle. As we all know, the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish is a huge cult product within the beauty community therefore when I first started out blogging it was something I had to get my hands on. Now, after using that on and off for 6 months and more recently a lot more frequently I have finally decided that yes, it does deserve the huge applause it receives. Today however I'm not going to be reviewing the Cleanse and Polish as that is a future post in the works I will however be looking at the Instant Boost Skin Tonic, which is a product from Liz Earle which I think often is overlooked.

Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic

The Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic is a toner which aims to soothe and brighten the skin after using your cleanser of choice. The packaging says to use this day and night but to be quite honest I only ever used it in the evening time after my cleanser and before my moisturiser. To use this I simply pour some onto a cotton pad and sweep it across my face, this ensures that any remaining cleanser is removed (although it should be anyway) whilst also soothing my skin.

The tonic contains aloe vera in order to revitalise the skin as well as chamomile and cucumber to soothe. I must say when I use this it is a really refreshing and calming experience as it smells so darn good. I find that this really does make my skin feel refreshed and revitalised and now that it has all been used up I find that I'm really missing this in my evening skincare routine, I'm rather gutted that I do not have another bottle in reserve.

This product can be used by pouring it onto a cotton pad or it can also be used a spritzer as it comes in two different packaging formats which is really quite a good idea; I've not noticed many other brands that do this. At £13.25 I wouldn't hesitate to buy this again barring funds permit as it is a lovely toner to have within your skincare regime.

I love the fact that Liz Earle products are not tested on animals, despite the brand having been purchased by Avon I understand that they remain true to their no animal testing policy.

I must admit there are a few products that I've still got my eye on from Liz Earle that I'm really keen to try, with those being the Signature Foundation and the Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion.

  1. There's so much hype around the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish and honestly, I haven't heard much about their other products such as this Instant Boost Skin Tonic. It's quite reasonably priced too. If I could get my hands on this, I would!

  4. I had a little sample of this and I have no idea what happened to it, I must try to dig it out and see if it's still okay! It sounds lovely.
    The eyebright lotion is fab, I don't get on with Cleanse & Polish at all though :/

  9. I still haven't tried anything from Liz Earle yet. I don't even know why! I love the idea of this though, it sounds perfect for these hot days to cool down in the evening. I'm not sure anything could replace my beloved Bioderma though :D xx

  11. I've never heard of a skin care product being offered in a choice of packaging - that's a really good idea, especially for a toner! I think I would choose the spritz version, just because it's a bit more versatile. Toner is an often overlooked part of my routine - though I am partial to a face mist :)

    1. It's such a bonus I think, the added extra detail such as that is something which makes me consider brands so much more. I like facial mists too, they're so refreshing :) xx
