I ordered a few sample sized products from the website. I was pleased to see that you can shop by skin type, so I clicked straight on the 'dry' button. Great- no need to spend ages searching for the right product. I ordered two of the products recommended for dry skin, the skin repair moisturiser and the intensive nourishment treatment mask.
The products came swiftly and neatly packaged, (although naughty Mr. Postman left the package on my step, leaving it available to any opportunist thief who may walk past!) I received a lovely little 'personalised' letter and a catalogue of products, as this is my first time shopping with Liz Earle.
All in all, a happy shopping process. I feel cared for by them, let's see if my skin does.
The product that I tried tonight wasn't even one I ordered. It was a free gift, and who doesn't love a free gift?
This was the cleanse and polish hot cloth cleanser. It came with a clear set of instructions, which I love. I, of course, promptly followed it step-by-step.
I used the cloth to rub away my makeupdirt and then, as instructed, 'carefully' patted my face with a towel. I love that use of 'carefully'-it highlights that the skin is fragile and important and so should be looked after.
My skin definitely felt 'looked after' after I used the cleanser. My skin was silkly soft, even more so when I applied the skin repair moisturiser after, again as instructred, which luckily I had ordered!
So I'm sitting here now with pretty smooth, hydrated and happy skin. I didn't use much of the moisturiser and my cheeks and chin are lovely and smooth, but to be honest I think I'll need to add a little more to my most stubborn area, my forehead, to make sure that I don't get that tight/flaky look overnight. Nice.
I'm happy with my shopping experience and products from Liz Earle, and if my skin continues to respond to the products as it is now, then I will be purchasing full sized items pretty soon!
I'm looking forward to using the face mask now (whilst indulging in a hot bath with a girly magazine...oh yes).
