So I bought the Dry/Sensitive skin repair when my skin dried up during pregnancy. I was pretty happy with this but then it suddenly wasn't enough and I started having to apply twice. As I love Liz's products, I thought i'd try this.
Initially it was too rich but my skin started to drink it in and wow, i'm impressed. Didn't break me out as a lot of moisturises do. I bought my first pot from ebay and that had a distinct smell like it was off which was slightly unpleasant. However, my second pot was from Liz Earle directly and this had no smell apart from a mild hint of Rosehip seed oil.
My only dislike is the price which personally I think is a bit steep for me. However I think when the warm weather comes round I might be back to my Skin Repair and reserve this for winter.

to me it smells more like marshmallow. No problem. I'd say this was average, no fancy effects, gets the job done - to moisturize.

I love this moisturizer! I bought it on a flight to Ireland and used it on my dry, reactive skin the entire trip and it was a lifesaver. Made my skin clear and glowy and hydrated! No breakouts, no sensitivity.
The smell *is* a little funny - it really does smell like Omega 3 supplements (think flax seed oil), but I like it because it smells natural to me. MUCH prefer that to some chemical floral scent.
The jar, which retails for about $60 USD, lasted me about 3 months, with 2x/day usage.
Have and will purchase again - the only pain is that now I need to buy it from overseas, but well worth it!

I was really hoping this would be a good buy after trying out Liz Earl's Cleanse and Polish, which is my favourite all time product.
It's a good moisterizer- But sadly has a weird smell to it...
It smells like a cross between fish and playdough. My boyfriend hates me wearing it. Will not be buying again. :(

I use this on occasion when I'm taking a break from my usual moisturisers. It is quite a good moisturiser especially for very dry skin or during the winter season.
Smells terrible. Good over a facial oil.

I have ultrasensitive Rosacea/dermatitis/eczema - prone skin, when at its worst will be dry/oily and blemish-prone. I was happy with just using Macadamia Nut oil as cleanser and moisturiser during the summer, but then winter hit and hit hard. I broke down and bought this as John Lewis because the ingredients looked great, didn't have any of the triggers for skin disorders (isopropyl myristate, petrochemicals, parabens, etc.). It doesn't have a scent which is a godsend for us very sensitive folks. I would never stop using a moisturiser because it didn't smell nice - I don't have that kind of luxury! A small amount goes a long way, it sinks in quickly and moisturises beautifully. I use Hazelnut or Macadamia Nut oil to cleanse then apply a small amount of this moisturiser and massage in as advised in the insert. The moisture lasts through the day without getting greasy. I've used it for a few days, now, but it was instant love the first night I used it and the following morning my skin was still soft and smooth. I prefer a tube to a jar since I have very long fingernails but I just use the back of my nail to scoop it out. So far so good! I will update if I become reactive.

As I am a huge fan of REN but have found it to be quite expensive and only lasts six weeks I thought that as I had read some great reviews on Liz Earles range it was time I gave it a go. I love the moisturizer. I bought the cream in a pot as I like to be able to get right to the bottom. The first thing I noticed was the smell when I opened up the pot. It brought back so many lovely memories of my grandmother and the apricot moisturizer from Nutrimetics! I think it might be the avocado. I love the smell anyway!
I find this product light and used in combination with the cleanse and polish, and toner the system works really well. My pores are refined and my skin is not producing extra oil and also provides a great makeup base. I still prefer REN but will alternate with Liz Earle as it is a wonderful product range.

I have very dry skin, with fine lines caused by dryness, so I am quite a hard customer to please. At first I never really enjoyed this cream, but I think the trick here is to use a facial oil, massage it in, and then wack this on.
For me, I choose Nude's Replenishing Night Oil, along with this cream. I would buy it again, it is reseaonably priced and with Liz Earle, you never really go wrong.

I decided to try the Liz Earle line after watching a yt video online. I ordered the trial kit and am really liking this moisturizer. I have been using the Shu Uemura Phyto Black cream but this gives my dry, parched face more moisture. It is better than the Shu at about half the price.
My fine lines are quite diminished. It has plumped them up quite a bit to give me a smoother complexion and leaves my skin super soft!

This is very calming and soothing for my dry,reactive and rosacea prone skin. It does a great job of diminishing wrinkles around my eyes. Thats the good news , the bad news is it gave me a few milia on my cheeks which I've never had before with any other product. Perhaps I used too much.The smell is hard to describe ,but it certainly isn't fresh or uplifting like the LE skin repair moisturisers. Its a bit like old glue.
I've bought it twice and I'm sure I will buy it again , although it does lack the wow-factor considering its price.

I really like Liz Earle's Cleanse and Polish so after using up my Sisley All Day All Year I thought I would try this as a cheaper alternative. Although I am mature my skin isn't really dry but can be prone to being dehydrated in air conditioning and I thought the Superskin would be good for this, but I was wrong! I found it very bland and not special at all and although my make-up aplied ok over the top after a couple of hours my skin looked really dehydrated and my foundation looked like it had sunk into my skin! Also, I know it sounds strange but my skn even seemed to not look its usual healthy colour, even my husband noticed.I shall have to go in search of another moisturizer now as I can't really afford to keep buing Sisley but I do prefer natural products so if any of the MUA girls have any suggestions please let me know.

I got a 15ml size of this in a kit and was glad to try it but would not buy it on its own. I have been using a borage oil based (paraben free) cream for years, for a fraction of the price, and long ago found it a godsend for rosacea.(also eczema if you suffer from this)
How she can charge £10.75 for FIFTEEN mls is just ridiculous especially in jar packaging (I get a similar product for just under £4 for 100ml paraben free). I don't think her product is good enough to warrant that sort of price.
you can also purchase oils yourself and mix up your own version of the superskin oil with some drops of nice smelling essential oil depending on your skin type.In fact her original vital oils book gives some good recipes - these seem to have gone from the new edition!

After years of reading reviews but not posting, I felt I had to stick up for Liz Earle's Superskin moisturizer. I am a big Liz Earle fan but found her other mousturisers way too greasy (even the Light version). I have good skin which is sensitive and occasionally prone to dryness, but not super-dry. I'm in my early thrities. My skin drinks this up and loves it. Very luxurious. I must admit this is a mousturiser for me for the British Winter. Smells gorgeous and lasts for ages too. In Summer I use a lighter Lavera cream.

I wanted to love this, it has been reported to be the best moisturizer EVER by some well respected beauty editors. The first mini jar I got smelled bad. I used the product and it made my skin velvety and glowy. I just couldn't get past the smell. I recently got another jar for free and it has no smell, as billed - fragrance free. I will be giving this another go, as it may just be as wonderful as the editors say!

I am on my third jar of this and I won't be buying it again. I am a devoted Liz Earle fan and I wanted to love this product but I don't. After three jars (one of which was a present) I think I have really given it a good shot but I have not seen any anti ageing effects whatsoever. The fact that the cream is fragrance free is a reason not to buy for me as one of the major reasons I love LE products is because of the lovely essential oil smells.
The texture is not as nice as the original skin repair moisturiser and at double the price of it I really think superskin is not good value. Liz has always claimed to use better/more expensive ingredients in her whole range yet she decided to raise the price point on this because it is 'anti ageing'. I'm not impressed and will stick to skin repair.

I don't like it at all. The shea butter makes it a no-no for skin prone to break outs...and I don't know how to best describe it...but it's just a really BORING product. Nothing in it feels luxurious to the skin or the person appying it. Why this should work better for mature skin is anyone's guess -presumably the inclusion of roshehip seed oil - but for me it falls short on every aspect a good moisturizer aimed at dry, mature skin should have:
doesn't have outstanding moisturizing properties which leave the skin dewy but not oily. In fact, 20 minutes afterwards my skin felt bone dry again.
doesn't have a light, pleasing, natural scent. Smells of nothing.
doesn't really achieve anything.
Nonetheless, the reason I gave it 3 stars is due to LE's outstanding customer service & return service. I appreciate this isn't great shakes for US consumers who can return ANY product to ANY store, but in the UK we aren't so lucky. More often than not, once we bought a product we are stuck with it. Not so with Earle. The company will swiftly credit or exchange ANY product which isn't suitable or agreeable to the customer. Plus sends generous samples with any order. Nice one, Liz.
As to this "Superskin Moisturizer" - for me, not one of her better products. I couldn't say to whom I would recommend it - perhaps to non-dehydrated skins ? It certainly didn't gave me super skin. Also, I don't like pots but prefer tubes.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair Hair: Brown Eyes: Hazel
A lovely pot but it is a pot and I prefer moisturisers in tubes as I don't like the idea of contaminating the product or it being exposed to the air but moving on...
Lovely rich but non-greasy cream; an excellent texture and very hydrating, rejuvenating and plumping.
Unfragranced, even with no essential oils which may irritate dry and sensitive skins. Wonderful rosehip and borage extracts so great for the maturer skins.

I have sensitive and dry skin. I am always on the quest to find the perfect cream for my skin, so when this came out marketed for the more mature sensitive skin I had to try. I gave it one week - unfortunately two reddish patches appeared on my cheekbones - this is my cue to stop using a product as it is a warning that it is going to irritate my skin in a major way. So, another disappointment for me. I did not find it a pleasure to use - because it has no fragrance it has a weird non-smell instead - reminds me of dust! The cream did not have the luxurious texture I was expecting, and I did not find it particularly moisturising. However, I only gave it a week, so cannot comment on the results after a month or so daily use. I really liked the jar it came in though!

This is a lovely luxurious cream! It goes on smoothly and is truly nourishing. I have dry skin and I use this as a night cream and since I started using it, it has left me with a wonderful glow. I've only been using this cream for about 3 weeks so I can't tell you how effective it is as an anti aging cream, then again I don't have any wrinkles.
I ordered it directly from the Liz Earle web site for £30 and I think that's a really good price for what you get and a little goes a really long way! I love that the focus is on botanicals and natural oils, this is a great cream for sensitive skin. I'll definately purchase this again, its a wonderful rich cream for dry/sensitive skin.

Although I have oily skin being a Liz Earle addict I had to try this, I generally use Skin Repair Light and although this is aimed at drier, dehydrated skin I like this and so does my skin! It leaves my skin so smooth. I primarily use this as a night cream and it also makes a fantastic neck cream, another winner from Liz Earle!
