Use Instant Boost™ Skin Tonic after cleansing and before applying moisturizer, twice a day, every day.

Liz Earle

Birchbox Breakdown

All skin types need hydration, but women with normal and combination skin often skip this step to avoid breakouts. (In the words of our favorite pretty woman, “Big mistake. Big. Huge!”) Thanks to this lightweight moisturizer from British beauty pioneer Liz Earle, there’s no need to fear clogged pores any more. Filled with botanical hydrators, this balanced formula leaves skin supple, smooth, and, best of all, completely clear.

How it Works

Borage oil works to repair skin with essential fatty acids, while vitamin E locks in moisture and prevents future water loss. Beta-carotene provides major antioxidant protection from free radicals, which are caused by sun damage, pollution, and smoking.

Apply to cleansed and toned face and neck twice a day.

Great companion product to cleanser
Purchased

I purchased this because I was so impressed with the cleanser. I have dry areas around by nose and near my mouth, and my purchase was a "trust" buy. I am happy with the results one week into use, and think that it is a good follow up to the cleanser. Might go on to try the tonic...

Great morning moisturizer

Wonderful to use after the cleanser. Not a heavy moisturizer and great to use daily. Would reorder for sure. Perfect to use before exercising. Love it!

Non-oily. Feels good. Smells good. Feels light on skin. Will continue to reorder this product. Great in combination with the face wash as well.

BEST MOISTURIZER EVER
Purchased

The entire Liz Earle system is so great but the best part is this cream! It is so smooth and easy to apply. It glides on leaving my face looking bright and reduces fine lines, sun spots and acne scars! MIRACLE!

Nice but still not 100% sure
Purchased

I bought this based on the reviews and because I've been using and liking the Hot Cloth Cleanse & Polish system. I've been dutifully trying it off and on for about 2 weeks now, and I can't quite make up my mind if it is a new go-to product or not. I do have combination skin that can verge on oily, and for me, anything more than a tiny amount of this stuff makes my face super shiny, so I am wary of using it before I have to go out anywhere. At the same time, when I've used it at night instead of my night cream, my skin is super soft the next day. So, it doesn't soak in quite as well as that night cream (or the day version of the same brand, discovered through Birchbox's mystery pack), but I find that I keep going back to it. And given the price, I like that it will take me quite a while to use it up, so that's a plus too. Only once it's gone, I think, will I know if I miss it enough to re-order, but I do think I mostly like it!

my mom's favorite
Purchased

My mom LOVES this moisturizer. She was introduced to the brand when we lived in England 10 years ago. She's been trying to find it in the states, and now we have! She's in her 60's, and has great skin, so she just needs a good, light moisturizer. She's very particular about how things smell and feel on the skin, and Liz Earle always hits a home run in that department. I bought it for her, but I always use it when I'm home :)

This moisturizer is the best! Smells great, and keeps my skin the perfect combination of hydrated and fresh all day long. Not too thick or greasy. I will be purchasing this product again!
