Skincare – The Morning Edit

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!

What are your skincare heroes?



  1. Do you find the Liz Earle stuff is good at combating oil? I have quite oliy skin... Or do you have any recommendations for skin care products that do?! xxx

  2. I bought the two eyecare products you mentioned here after this review and so far I love them both, thank you!

  3. I am scared of the surgical ways to correct my vision.Besides,there is no guarantied chance to correct my vision.Again,if anything goes wrong I won't have any reverse option in surgical ways.So,I prefer sleepSEE. safe vision correction


Thank you for your comment, I really appreciate it. I read all of them and reply to any questions x
