This stuff is AMAZING. I've been using it on and off since I first discovered Liz Earle years ago. I've had several bottles - mostly those little minis that you often get free with an order. I say I've used it 'on off' but I'm going to make sure I always have some now!
I've always found it pleasant smelling and refreshing and as I've never really bought into the 'tone' part of 'cleanse tone moisturise', I've tended to use it as more of a cleanser - sometimes at night on a cotton pad or as a refresher during the day. I've noticed that it does give the skin a nice 'dewy' appearance. It's also good if your foundation is a little bit too thick/heavy/matte - just mix in a little bit of the toner before application.
Very recently, I've started (for the 'dewy' reason) to mix a little bit of it in with my moisturiser - in the palm of my hand - of a morning and I swear, the results have been miraculous!!
I noticed today that my usual laughter lines/crows-feet around my eyes (I'm early 40s and reasonably young looking for my age but do have some wrinkles) had very nearly vanished!
Seriously, about 2 decades wiped away. The only thing I'd been doing different was the toner in the moisturiser in the morning..
Liz Earle - PLEASE don't ever stop making this and don't ever change the formula!
(Bet they will, everything I love by all brands gets discontinued, groan).

I purchased the 'travel kit' initially which comes with the light moisturiser, deep cleansing mask, face tonic and hot cloth cleanser, and started using the face tonic on its own
(to ensure I don't react and can know which one i have reacted to if I do!) but this is lovely, it has a floral scent and is not a standard toner as I find a lot of toners will dry your skin and make your skin tight, but this just wipes away the excess oil/dirt/makeup and leaves your face feeling soft and looking fresh and radiant.
I was never sold on toners and would always miss out with my facial routine but i like this so much I will make sure I continue to use. I will definitely be buying the full size bottle when this runs out.

I feel really silly doing this review...
I love this product but don't really know why...
Liz describes this less as a toner and more as a final cleanse, and gentle moisturisation.
It does grab off any last smudges of makeup, which is great. It stops that "drying out" feeling you get after using water on your face. And I love the way it tingles slightly (I usually use this and let it soak in while I brush my teeth - the tingle is great for encouraging a circulation boost to the skin which is important for repair).
It smells heavenly too. Excuse the corn, but it smells like a country meadow (ha ha - corn - meadow - it's a pun in a pun!) herbaceous and floral.
It's just lovely!

This toner has a gorgeous, refreshing light botanical fragrance - probably my favourite aspect of it. It makes my skin feel really fresh and clean used after Liz Earle Hot Cloth cleanser. If you already use the cleanser, this toner will just make your skin feel even fresher and more revived used in conjunction.

Thanks Caroline Hiron for kicking my backside into never skipping toner use again. What a fatal error I have made for the last 7 years.
I view the purpose of using this toner as one for hydration in between days where I acid tone.
Its gentle and I really love the spray bottle. It seems to help my moisturiser sink in too.
The main reason I would not repurchase is because I simply do not like the scent. It reminds me of Johnsons baby powder or Guerlain's Jicky scent. No no no.

This product is best applied with cotton wool pads, it smells beautiful and leaves my skin feeling amazing. It's best used after the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser, the two products really set each other off if used twice a day together. Liz Earle is one of the only brands that help keep my skin blemish free whilst being gentle to my skin.

Love, love, love this!! I've used different toners in the past and always found them to sting and irritate my face and ended up throwing them out.
I got the Liz Earle toner as a free sample and just loved it straight away. It's smells lovely and fresh and I'm amazed at the dirt, grime and makeup it finds on my face after cleansing!
My skin doesn't feel dry at all afterwards and in the mornings my skin looks refreshed!
This works really well with the Cleanse & Polish and moisturiser. All Liz Earle products seem to be very well priced compared to other brands out there.

This is a really nice toner. It has a gorgeous smell and really makes me skin feel soft and refreshed. I wouldn't say it's a fantastic toner, simply because I haven't noticed any sort of WOW results after using it. I also think it contains fragrance (?) which is obviously not good for your skin, but I've been using this pretty much every day for a good two years now, and I've not experienced any adverse reaction. This is my last step in removing final traces of makeup. It's a little pricey, but compared to some high end toners, I wouldn't complain. The packaging is very pretty, and also very hygienic. The product goes on easily and smells nice too.
Removes final traces of makeup
Very cooling and relaxing
Makes my skin feel quite soft
Nothing major to write home about, does what it's supposed to do and not a lot more
A little pricey
The bottom line is that this is a nice, luxurious toner, but nothing special. It does contain fragrance which is a known irritant and therefore I probably won't repurchase in future (that said I have about 4 more bottles of this stuff to get through!).

Liz Earle instant boost skin tonic is one of the best toners I've used! over the past year I've been on a toner rampage to find the right toner for my skin type that moisturizes, closes pores and doesn't leave my skin with that overwhelming tight dry feeling. After trying Kiehl's ultra facial toner, caudalie grape water, nourish relax lavender toner, I finally settled for this and I love it because it does all of what i mentioned and more, my skin actually glow's with this toner and it feels incredibly soft, nourished while toned at the same time. I have extremely dry skin that is prone to occasional breakouts and i haven't broke out at all while using this! for anyone with irritated, sensitive skin i would definitely urge to try it as it really calm's the irritation down from makeup and outside aggressors with ingredients such as aloe vera, calendula, rose-scented geranium, cucumber and vitamin e. Overall its an excellent toner which I'll definitely repurchase.
