BEAUTY | LIZ EARLE SKIN SYSTEM

Ever since I bought cleanse and polish I have harped on about how much I love it and how it makes my skin feel so clean I had to try the next 2 steps; it'd be rude not to! The next step after Cleanse and Polish is the Instant Boost Skin Tonic (200ml spritz bottle available in an ordinary bottle or spritz form this is a product which is for all skin types; one product suits all sort of thing like cleanse and polish. As most of you probably know, Liz Earle have a moisturiser suited to most skin types; combination/oily, normal/combination, dry/sensitive and very dry/mature skin. I have oily skin so I have the Skin Repair Moisturiser Light* (£21.00 for 50ml pump).



The Instant Boost Skin Tonic (£15.50) promises to 'Revitalise, Soothe and Tone for Instant Radiance'

I LOVE this product, the idea of it being in a spritz bottle is fab for me because it's just so convenient, I'll often go for an afternoon nap after university or before work so this product is ideal for just spritzing on my face to wake me up, it smells beautiful and doesn't sting my eyes (although I don't recommend squirting it directly into your eyes!). I have also tried this in bottle form, and although it's the exact same product I still prefer to spritz rather than use cotton wool. Like all Liz Earle products I've tried, this smells absolutely lush, so clean and not a chemical scent in sight; no wonder really seeing as it contains aloe vera, vitamin E, calendula extract, chamomile extract, hops, cucumber, geranium and a whole load of other 'naturally active ingredients' that give me the confidence to use this product without fear that it's going to block my pores. It does take a little while to soak into your skin properly so it's a good idea to do something else before you put on your moisturiser just so you get the full benefits of using this toner; the non-spritz toner does dry a little quicker but thats all about application and which one you buy is totally down to personal preference but I definitely recommend trying this one if you've already tried the bottled one.























Skin Repair Moisturiser* (£21.00) is 'Light, Gentle and Balancing for Fresh, Naturally Healthy Skin'
When I received this I was surprised to see that this comes in a pump bottle rather than a screw top jar which is what I have seen on so many blogs. When Liz Earle say light, they really mean that this product is light as it comes out of the pump it's a lovely consistency; one pump easily covers my face! I have noticed that my skin feels less oily throughout the day since using Liz Earle for just a week! The Skin Repair Moisturiser is absorbed by my skin super quickly and gives a great base for makeup.


I can highly recommend Liz Earle skin products if you're looking for a high quality skincare routine.

BEAUTY | CHILDREN IN NEED NAIL ART

So sorry I haven't posted for a few days, I've been so busy with work and uni I either haven't had time to blog or I've been far too tired when I've actually got to sit down! So here's just a quick post to show you my nails for Children in Need, they aren't perfect and I don't really like the yellow shade but it's the only one I had!!

They could be mistaken for Twister nails but given the time of year most people have realised what they're meant to be!! And also a sight cheaper than the wraps you can get from Boots!!
