One recent morning, a group of Birchbloggers came by our New York headquarters to learn more about Liz Earle, and to get a peek at some of the products we’re adding to the Birchbox Shop.
A longtime UK favorite, the brand has won plenty of new fans stateside with its commitment to using plant-based ingredients and meticulous approach to product development (the process takes around five years!). Not to mention universally appealing: despite having vastly different skin types and needs, our Birchbloggers fell head over heels for the formulas. Here’s what they had to say, in their own words:
The Super Gentle Formulas
“Though I wouldn't recommend using a manual exfoliator very often, the Gentle Face Exfoliator is exactly that—gentle. This product feels very similar to the Cleanse & Polish except with the addition of jojoba beads. I use this once a week or when my skin is feeling particular heavy with dirt such as after a workout, hot day outside, or crazy make-up.”
— Kim Dalve, Evladylrebmik
The Holistic Ingredients
“The products all have natural ingredients such as aloe vera, cocoa butter and cucumber, which is great on the skin, and they all smell amazing. It is great to find a company which prides themselves on using natural and botanical ingredients to help the skin and that caters to a wide variety of different skin types.”
— Jasmin Cabrera, Simply Made in Manhattan
The Affordable Price
“At $6 a cloth, you can’t really do better! All Liz Earle products were at a pretty reasonable price point, staying in the $20-$40 range, where similar products with organic ingredients can cost you into the $70′s!”
—Cara Kovacs, The StylePhile Blog
The Fresh Botanical Scent
The scent of rose geranium is absolutely divine! After spritzing the Skin Tonic Spritzer all over my face and neck, it left my skin feeling soft, smooth and hydrated. One of the best parts is that the scent lasted throughout the application of my moisturizer and BB cream!
