Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser

In my face care routine, as you know, moisturizer plays an important part even though I have oily skin in summer.
For a few days, I have been wearing the Liz Earle Skin Repair moisturizer.
Remember I reviewed their Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth cleanser and Skin Tonic, the toner?
In that CTM routine, this moisturizer forms the third and the last step.

So, what is it?


What does the brand claim? from their website
Light and gentle, this easily absorbed moisturising lotion is ideal for combination, oily or problem skin.
This finely balanced blend of naturally active skin-conditioning ingredients includes borage oil (a rich source of the essential fatty acid GLA), echinacea, hops, avocado oil, panthenol (pro-vitamin B5) and natural antioxidants beta-carotene and vitamin E to replace lost moisture and help protect your skin, leaving it soft and smooth with a naturally healthy glow.
Massage into face and neck, morning and night, after Instant Boost Skin Tonic.
Includes borage and avocado to lightly moisturise and balance the skin.
Suitable for combination/oily skin

Direction for use: ( from the website)
Gently massage Skin Repair Light into face and neck morning and night after Instant Boost Skin Tonic.

What I say about it?

Likes
1) it's a light skin cream that is almost lotiony, easy to blend and non sticky.
2) It does not make the skin oily even in summer ( although made me oily in humid weather when even the dry lacto calamine made my skin oily).
3) It is quite moisturizing. It does the job effectively without clogging the pores.
4) Only a pea size amount is needed.
5) Smells good and subtle just like the Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser which dissipates again, in a few minutes.
6) Comes in a pump bottle. So very hygienic. The bottle is sturdy and classy, not flimsy.
7) It keeps the skin hydrated for a long time.
8) Never broke me out.
9) With the regular cleansing , toning and moisturizing, I could note a difference. but lazy me. As soon as I realized that, I became lazy again.


What I don't like:

1) The price is a real, not pocket pinch, but a hole in the pocket.
2) Availability is an issue.
3) it made my skin oily when the weather was too humid. but then, I won't blame the product. Even lacto calamine made my skin oily then.

Do I recommend?
Yes, if money is not an issue for you. Otherwise, there are plenty of good moisturizers in the market. but if you do get hold of this one, try to give it a go


So, what do you think of this? try it or give it a pass?

PS: The product was sent to me by the company/PR , but that has not affected my review

  7. @ Segments of life: This is quite good. I would recommend but the price is something too much.
    @Eve-o-lution: if I lived in the UK I'm sure I would have repurchased it. Let me know how you like it, if you get it.
    @ZatZ: yes you can give this a try. but i think you should make your own skin care regimen. That helps a lot. I myself realized that around two years back and I'm in a better position now.
    @ ginger: That's the saddest part :P
    @ Ansh: Yeah. This is soo good. I'll save some for winters :P
    @ Sonia: Even I'm plannign to use it as a night cream in winters when I need something extra yet mild enough.
    @ DazzleDiva: No dear. Unfortunately this is not. It's a very renouned brand from UK which won many awards for their gentle yet effective products.
