I was walking down the high street the other day and I caught a reflection in a shop window and it took my breath away. I could have sworn that I caught a glimpse of my mum, but that would have been impossible as she has been dead nearly five years. What I actually saw was me, but not the me in the mirror, the real me.
So when I was offered some Liz Earle Superskin™ Face Serum to try I thought yes, I need to give this a try. The face serum is designed for mature skin and now I am over 40 I am certainly in that bracket! it is designed to plump and smooth mature skin.
I am a big fan of Liz Earle products. My mum introduced them to me way back in 1996 and we both used their Cleanse and Polish and to this day I still do. Maxi and MIni had their first baths using their Orange Flower Botanical Body Wash and I love their hair oil for my frizzy hair.
I have extremely sensitive skin and also due to my health background I try to use products that paraben free as much as possible. So when I find a product that works for me I tend to stick to it.
Since the boys were born I have a very basic skin care routine. I Cleanse and Polish morning and night, tone and follow with a moisturiser. I use Elemis pro-collagen marine cream as a day cream and Neal’s Yard Beauty sleep concentrate for nights. The great thing about the Liz Earle Superskin™ Face Serum is that you use it in addition to your normal routine as an additional layer of moisturiser morning or night.
I have been using it for over a week now and I think that you can feel a difference in my skin. It is softer. After about 2 days my cheeks were a little drier, but that soon disappeared and to be honest it could have been the fact that we turned the heating on!
One of the lovely things about Liz Earle Superskin™ Face Serum is that is smells delicious, as do all their products. I love the fact that it is in a pump bottle makes it easy to apply just the amount you need and you are not popping your fingers into a jar. Speaking of the bottle it is really weighty and feels nice in your hand and I love how it looks on my shelf (fickle I know)!
Liz Earle Superskin™ Face Serum retails at £48.00, which can seem a little expensive initially, but for experience I know that they last and work out to be good value per use. Plus I figure that as I know my skin a lot better and buy much fewer products than I used to means that I spend less annual on lotions and potions (with the exception of eye cream as I just can not find one that suits my skin). I live it and will buy it again. My only gripe is I can not tell when it will be empty as you can not see in the bottle.
Have you noticed your skin change as you get older? I would love to know what products you use and what rout regime is?
