I tried a trial size of this (0.34oz at £5.95) when I suddenly experienced really dry skin having had a reaction to a shampoo. Without a doubt, this is truly a miracle product as it turned my skin back to its normal state within a couple of days. I don't have dry skin but still use this once every 7 - 10 days. You can really see a difference in your skin afterwards. It leaves your face feeling beautiful, and with no greasiness. This is a hero product.
A lovely, light refreshing toner made of natural ingredients. In comparison to main brands such as Elemis, Clarins, Decleor etc, etc, price is cheap. Can be used to cool your face down in the heat without ruining your make-up.
A very nice hand cream, and I can understand why a lot of flight attendants use it to combat the effects of the air in the cabin. Non greasy, sinks in well and mositurises well. Probably the best hand cream I have used. The price - at £12.95 - is higher than a lot of other hand creams - especially mainstream ones - but, bearing in mind this is a natural product and it does last ages, it is a small price to pay!
I have been in to natural hair products for some years now following a sudden reaction to a mainstream shampoo. I tried this (and the conditioner) thinking they would be good and they did deliver what they promised and hair did feel and look nice. However, after about three uses I developed really bad dandruff. Thinking this might be coincidence, I swapped to different products for a while and then reverted back to Liz Earle. Once again, same dandruff problem so, sadly, will not be purchasing again.

Like my review for the eye line, I bought a Power Repair line trial pack at my local spa. Having been advised of the potency of the Pevonia products and only to use small pea-sized amounts, I was very careful not to overdo it. However, some three days laters my skin on my face itself became irritated - luckily nowhere near as bad as the problem I experienced with my eyes after using the eye products - and I have had to stop using the products.

I bought a trial pack for the eye line from my local spa and, within two days, my eyes had swollen, had gone crepey and very red aroiund the whole eye area. Some four days later the damage is starting to subside and I have been luck enough to receive a refund for the trial pack. As Pevonia does not use any 'nasties' I am not sure what has irritated my eyes, but sadly I will not be able to use this again.
This cleansing milk is easy to use, cleanses well and leaves your skin feeling lovely. I even use it on my eyes, but on moistened cotton wool. It diminishes the look of your pores and leaves skin looking bright and more radiant than the cleansing cream. My only two gripes are that it is not an inexpensive cleanser but, having said that, there are lots of other cleansers of this calibre of company that are more expensive. Secondly, there does tend to be some wasteage when you get towards the bottom of the bottle. It becomes quite fiddly to try and get every last bit out!! That aside, I have noticed a huge difference in the look and feel of my skin since using this product and my skin looks younger! Who can complain at that??!!!
Tinted Moisturizer -Dr. Hauschka - Toned Day Cream

This product is simpy brilliant, especially during the less cold months of the year. It moisturises well, but can be used over your normal moisturiser without making your face look (and feel) greasy. I do not use powder over it and find it stays well all day. It also gives your skin a nice toned look and evens out your complexion. Really excellent, without blocking pores or looking heavily made up in the summer.
By far, this has to be the best foundation I have ever bought. It goes on smoothly, doesn't cake and stays in place all day. Skin looks fresh. Would not buy anything else.
