I bought this tiny 5ml tube of Liz Earle’s Daily Eye Repair from the Liz Earle website for £8.95 as I wanted to try an eye cream that contains SPF. The eye area is especially prone to sun damage so it is important to keep this area protected. There aren’t that many SPF eye creams on the market because sunscreen ingredients can be irritating around the eye area, therefore it can be difficult to get the formulation right.
What’s really impressive is that I bought this tube in February and it just finished 2 months later! I didn’t expect a tube this small to last more than a month. The formula contains Titanium Dioxide as the sunblock ingredient amongst other moisturising ingredients.
The cream is white in colour, not particularly thick or tacky and absorbs quickly whilst leaving a bit of a white cast. It sat well under my concealer and didn’t cause any irritation. Overall I did find that this product wasn’t moisturising enough for my dry under eyes therefore I won’t be repurchasing it. However if your skin isn’t too dry then this would be a perfect product to carry in your travel bag.
I remember the first time I used this cleanser and my reaction was literally “Woah”. I had seen it on QVC and was interested to see why it had won so many beauty awards. At the time I was using drug store brand cleasers which always left my combination skin feeling dry, tight and didn’t remove my make up efficiently.
The cleanser is free from mineral oil, it has a rich and creamy texture which is almost balmy. The smell has a fresh hint of eucalyptus. Massage this onto dry skin for 1 minute and then polish off the cream using the pure muslin cloth rung in warm water, to gently exfoliate dead skin cells and help reveal make-up free skin.
I love using this product, it has really made cleansing fun and a treat for my skin. It is no longer left feeling dry or tight but instead moisturised and clean. The only reason that a bit of my MAC waterproof eye liner remained in the picture above is because I applied it just 15 minutes before removal, usually after a full day eye liner comes right off.
The muslin cloth helps to reveal brighter more radiant skin due to the gentle exfoliating action. The cloths have to be machine washed every two days, and eventually become softer when they have to be replaced. You can buy the cloths separately from Liz Earle but they are more economical if you buy them with the cleanser or you can buy them online from other sellers.
The product comes in a 200ml tube (£24.75), 100ml pump (£13.25) and 50ml pump (£8.50). A 100ml pump will last one month If you use 1 pump every morning and night. However I find that I only need 1/2 a pump per wash and 1 if I’m wearing a full face of heavy make-up.
This is one of those product I can’t live without and will continue to use as long as I can afford it. I tried to revert back to cheaper cleansers but I just kept coming back to this one because of the positive effects it has had on my skin.
