Skincare is a big deal for me. You can spend fortunes on expensive foundations and fancy powders but if you don’t take care of what’s under it, it won’t make a jot of difference! The evening edit’s been covered (here if you missed it). Invariably mornings can be more of a rushed affair, but if I’m honest, I’d rather skip the makeup than the skincare. It’s very Liz Earle heavy – sorry, not sorry.
Most morning’s start with Cleanse & Polish £14.75. I’m currently enjoying the limited edition orange blossom and chamomile flavour – it has a lovely refreshing scent... very summery. Nothing wakes my face like the iconic hot cloth cleanser. A gentle massage to get the blood pumping, a buff with the pure muslin cloth and a splash of water... does wonders! Read my full review here Sometimes I follow with Liz Earle Skin Tonic, but if I’m in a rush, the splash of cold water will do.
If the eyes are the windows to the soul then mine’s knackered! I always wake up with tired puffy eyes and obvious blue-toned eye bags. I don’t know what I’d do without this duo. Liz Earle Eyebright £10.75 is a cooling, refreshing tonic for tired eyes. Gentle dab cotton pads soaked with Eyebright all over the eye area to wake and revitalise tired peepers. I keep mine in the fridge for added Ooomph! After a couple of minutes I dab on the saviour that is Eye Repair £14.75. The triple action cream reduces the appearance of fine lines but it also has amazing light-reflective particles that magically conceal dark bags and brightens the eye area. Dab it on and watch the wonder occur.
In the evenings I like a rich, deeply nourishing moisturiser like Sreamcream or Liz Earle Superskin Moisturiser. During the day I need something lighter that doesn’t make me shiny. I’m currently using Avène Hydrance Optimale Light £14. It has a soft, comforting texture that soaks in quickly keeping my face moisturised but shine-free plus it’s enriched with cult fave Avène Thermal Spring Water... double win!
