Fact – skin changes during pregnancy. And whilst mine is faring pretty well so far, I have noticed a lack in hydration, which in turn emphasises my “minor” lines and imperfections. I ain’t going down like that! So it’s time to up the skincare ante. Enter Liz Earle Superskin Moisuriser.
Basically, it’s heaven in a jar. To sum up how it leaves my skin - Radiant, replenished and seriously plumptious! If you’re not familiar with Liz Earle skincare, they do the standard moisturiser Skin Repair (the one in the blue tube) in three variations – light, normal/combo and dry/sensitive. Then there’s the super supped-up Superskin moisturier – “for very dry and mature skin types”. Far be it for me to tell Liz how to market her products, but I think she’s doing Superskin a disservice – I fall into neither of those categories but I’m seriously loving this moisturiser.
The texture is rich, luxurious and very creamy. It contains all the botanical beauties you’d expect plus collagen-boosting pomegranate flower extract, omega-3, antioxidants and all that jazz. It’s a pleasure to massage into the skin. It spreads easily and absorbs pretty quickly. At first I thought I’d only use this as a night time treat, but I tried it on a morning and guess what, my skin didn’t turn into a total grease bomb and my foundation did not slide off! It leaves my skin looking soft, supple, hydrated, HEALTHY, glowing and seriously plumped like I’ve just had a sneaking collagen boost. In short, it’s superfood for the face!
It captures the same heavenly neroli scent as Superskin Concentrate (possibly my favourite product EVER) but in a non-overpowering way (there’s a fragrance free if neroli ain’t your bag). Luxury like this comes at a price - £39/50ml jar here, but stand that up next to the likes of Elemis Marine Cream (I believe this one's far better) and the Cult creams of the World, this one's priced fairly reasonably.
