The products in the Trio I used were: Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, Skin Repair Moisturiser Normal/Combination and Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer.
This product was introduced to me by a friend. I was reticent at first because I am biased against natural products as I find them a bit lacking in impact.
Anyway, putting my doubts aside, I decided to go the whole hog and bought the Skin Repair Moisturiser, Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser and Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer
I will be reviewing all these in this post.
Let’s start with the moisturiser. I was not keen on the smell, which I assume was due to the naturalness of the product. The smell also brought back uni memories of a girl my then boyfriend used to fancy and she always smelt weird to me. It could be that my territorial senses are linked to my olfactory senses. Anyway I got over the smell and used the moisturiser, the feel of the of it was quite light for a cream and spreads very well.
It worked wonders on my skin, it regulated the moisture levels of my skin amazingly. My oily T -Zone was mattified and my dry patches were cured. However my acne issues were not dealt with by the product. To be honest this was not one of the features of the product, so that was to be as expected.
I was using this moisturiser with my Philosophy Purity Made Simple 3 in1 Cleanser for face and eyes, and it worked quite well together. The issue as always was my acne which both products did nothing for. However, as I stated above these products aren’t for acne so my acne skin clearing expectation of this product was totally unfair.
I will definitely RECOMMEND the moisturiser for people with a similar skin type to mine. (a dry forehead and chin with an oily nose and cheeks) and rate it a THRILL!.
Now on to the cleanser. I liked the cleanser, however to me the hero product is the muslin cloth. The combination of both the cleanser and muslin cloth is very effective. The cleanser is rich and is more body butter than balm for those who want to know how this differs from the nighttime cleansers I usually use. Despite this the cleanser is very good at lifting off mascara, eyeliner and the day’s grease from your face.
If the cleanser is used without the muslin cloth, and just rinsed off using warm water, it tends to leave a dirty make up cleanser residue behind as it holds onto to the make up grime and it isn’t completely removed.
The cleanser is best used with the wash cloth and my review of this is an OKAY, I have read that a lot of people rate this as a holy grail cleanser. It wasn’t for me.
The toner or tonic spritzer as it is known was not impressive to me, it felt sticky and didn’t help my skin retain moisture at all. I actually felt the Liz Earle moisturiser was more effective on my skin when I stopped using the toner.
There isn’t much for me to say about the toner except for me this was a FAIL! and a very very hard pass.
