Skincare - Face - Liz Earle - Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish

May/29/2014

Have been using all kind of cleansers over the years - milk, mousse, balm and more recently micellaire water, which I find horrible as it just does not clean no matter the brand, but nothing, absolutely nothing comes close to this. Not Eve Lom, not Ren (which I stll think makes very good products), not Dermalogica, not Clinique, Clarins and the likes. I would get OK results with a milk …Read more

Fantastic new French bio range, Biopha Nature has no chemicals whatsoever and this hand cream works like a bomb! It smells like nothing, has a nice, rich texture that gets absorbed immediately and your hands feel super soft but without any oily/greasy film. From the first application even the drier parts of my hands (featuring cracked skin!) have immediately become smooth. I have never …Read more

BB Cream - REN Clean Skincare - Satin Perfection BB Cream

Not a bad product but I wouldn't purchase it, at least for winter. It's better than other BB creams in the same price range (eg Erborian, which I find quite nasty) and far better than high street brands like Garnier in that it blends in nicely and "stays on" all day but I don't like it on its own so since I still have to use a moisturiser underneath I stick to my bare …Read more

Good product on severely dry, cracked, bleeding hands! It absorbs instantly and leaves no greasy film but my hands are ridiculously dry. Also started to apply to baby face, which shows signs of red, dry patches. Will update on this.

UPDATE - it did nothing to my baby skin and it's actually so rich that I can't even rub it in properly on his face. As for my hands, now that …

I like this very much. It doesn't feel like a strong scrub while you use it but it does work! Leaves your skin so soft that I often don't put any moisturiser on. Will buy again.

This is a good product. It applies easily with a brush so there's no need to pull and lift your skin like you would with a liquid foundation and it doesn't dry like powder. It stays on nicely and provides medium coverage, which is very natural but less is more with this product so it's important not to overdo. Would definitely buy again.
UPDATE - been using it for a month …

Woohoo, this stuff is amazing! I mix it with aloe vera gel and apply all over my face, eye area and body and the results are outstanding. I like to combine it with aloe vera gel because it absorbs almost instantly so you're left with no oily film, just incredibly smooth skin for at least 24hrs. It doesn't clog pores, it doesn't smell bad and it doesn't cost a fortune (compared …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Dermalogica - MAP-15 regenerator

Have been using it (on and off) for a few months. I don't mix it with moisturiser any more, I find that rubbing it in alone before the moisturiser works better. No major changes in complexion but I don't have discoloration or sun spots, however put it on wrinkles and watch them disappear immediately, though temporarily. Whether it's worth the high price I don't know.

Only been using it for 2 weeks twice a day but skin is definitely looking cleaner than ever. Fewer blackheads and reduced size of whiteheads. No noticeable changes in wrinkles or blemishes (yet). Pleasant to use, not abrasive at all. Would recommend and would buy again.
UPDATE - Still using it, still works, still love it!
