Liz Earle Gentle Face Exfoliator Review

After using Liz Earle skin essentials for the past few weeks - Cleanse & Polish, Skin Tonic & Skin Repair Light - I introduced a scrub. This is also from Liz Earle and I love it. Introducing...

Gentle Face Exfoliator

The texture of this cream-based scrub is similar to Cleanse & Polish, but it has the added benefits of granules to polish skin.

Containing naturally-active ingredients including jojoba beads to gently exfoliate, cocoa butter to moisturise and soothing eucalyptus. Perfect for you if you suffer from blocked pores, blackheads and congested or flaky skin. The gently beads gently buff away excess/dead skin cells and impurities for smoother, clearer skin. Not suitable for sensitive skin.

I absolutely love it... I have been using it 3 times a week for the past couple of weeks (after Cleanse & Polish) and I can really feel the difference when I massage my Skin Repair in. My skin feels deep-cleaned, smooth and radiant.

It's so easy to use... just 1 pump massaged in (avoiding eye area) and then I remove it with the muslin cloth. On a couple of occasions, I have mixed a small amount in with Cleanse & Polish and that's a great trick if you're short on time in the morning.

My skin - unfortunately - experienced a breakout after about 4 weeks of using Cleanse & Polish. It's now clearing, so hopefully that was a one-off. I love using the range so I'm grinning (well, grimacing!) and bearing it ; )

I was kindly sent the 70ml pump bottle (the full-sized version) which costs £12.50. It's also available in a 50ml tube for £8.95 and a 15ml tube for £4.85, which is a perfect travel size or if you're looking to try it for the first time.

If this sounds like the scrub for you, you can check it out here.

I have just ordered the Springtime Must-Haves for myself, which contains the Skin Essentials trio plus a free Cleanse & Polish. It was a bargain at just £41 (instead of £54.35 rrp) and it will arrive next week. I can't wait as I'm running low on Cleanse & Polish and Skin Tonic and panic that I will run out before it arrives!

On the subject of new products (in a roundabout way!) I also picked up a bargain at TK Maxx last weekend: 'This Works' 'Stretch Mark Oil'. I do not suffer from stretch marks (thankfully) but I was excited to see this for just £4 in their Clearance sale! Considering that it normally retails for about £35, I was amazed to see it (boxed, un-opened & un-tested too!) It's an amazing body oil and I will be posting a review about it next week.

Hope you're enjoying having another 4-day weekend - I certainly am! : ) x


  1. I'm dying to try the liz earle products! I have my eye on the clear skin kit at the moment.

  2. @Carla... I'm thinking of getting that too :) In fact, it'd be easier for me to get one of everything (I wish!) :) x
