What Liz Earle say:
[REVIEW] Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic + Skin Repair MoisturizerCleansing your skin should be Step 1 of your skin routine, after that a toner and a moisturizer should be used to get the best results. If you haven't read my previous post on the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish have a looky here. For today I have a review of 2 products from their skincare range, the Instant Boost Skin Tonic + Skin Repair Moisturizer. I had a great experience with the Cleanse & Polish which gave me high expectations for the following products. One component in skin care that I feel is critical is how the product makes you feel after an hour or so after using them. I really admire how all the product's I have tried from Liz Earle so far have a refreshing scent, made from natural ingredients you can really smell that no extra ingredients were added just for the scent.

To Sum it up!
I love how this moisturizer smells, its so light and refreshing. For a few days I was using this in the morning and after an hour I felt my face sweating the product off. Its not meant for humid or hot weather, so its best to use just a smallest amount. It didn't break out my skin at all. My skin didn't feel oily after using it. This would be great for dry weather conditions.
- Smells refreshing
- Light texture
- Easy and controllable packaging
Dislikes:- Greasy feeling after an hour
- Not meant for hot weather

To Sum it up!
I really wish I asked for the spritzer bottle! I find that the bottle really bursts the product out when I twist it open, since its a liquid it spills all over so I try to place a cotton pad directly over the opening and then twist it open so that whatever spills goes on the cotton pad. It smells just very light and clean, I think in hot weather I would place this in the refrigerator and it would be a very nice way to wake up in the morning. A great component of this product is that you can apply it after using makeup if you use a spray bottle. I will transfer this product in a spray bottle so that it will be easier to use. I really like using this product, I like to apply this mostly over my T-zone to absorb most of the oil. It does a good job of further maintaining clean skin.
- Can use over makeup
- Refreshing feeling
- Clean scent
- Absorbs excess oil
Dislikes:- Flimsy twist up packaging
