Liz Earle products are my go to when it comes to my day to day skin regime. On the weekends just before starting another tedious Monday, I go a step further, delving deeper into the delightful goodies on offer.

Face masks are everywhere. From luxury brands to cheap one offs. As tempting as it is to experiment and try them all, I’ve found that all important balance with Liz Earle coming out on top yet again.

The Deep Cleansing Mask is a concentrated clay and botanical mask, which helps to draw out impurities leaving skin balanced and calm. Whilst it may not initially look too appealing to smear on your face, ingredients like aloe vera, geranium essential oil, Manuka honey and white and green clay, gives it a sweet and slightly floral scent. Smooth and glossy, I generally apply this after using the Cleanse and Polish and leave for about five minutes.

You do feel that slightly tight sensation as it dries, but unlike most masks, there’s no sign of crumbling or cracking. Wiping off the residue won’t leave your face begging to be moisturised either. In fact, the smooth, bright and oil-free touch is something to behold. Lately I’ve been prone to a couple of breakouts but when used consistently, the natural ingredients of course work their charm and help to ward off unsightly spots and blemishes.

All in all, it’s one of those masks that does what it says although it should be noted that it’s not suitable for sensitive skin. Don’t be disheartened though. Liz Earl stocks a wide range of products and for those who have sensitive skin, there’s the Intensive Nourishing Treatment Mask. The fact that these products come with warning notes and are tailored for specific skin types gives me that bit more confidence in trusting their knowledge in skincare.

Dark circles are another problem area for me. No matter how much powder, concealer and foundation I blend in, they’re still there. Liz Earle doesn’t work miracles, but she does offer olive branches that will make a slight difference. Her Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion is a gentle tonic that “revitalises the delicate eye area” and can also double up as an eye make up remover. Suitable for contact lens wearers, pretend you’re at a spa and place two cotton wool pads over your eyes and relax for a couple of minutes. Gently wipe them away and you’ll notice brighter and refreshed eyes. Don’t you love a brand that understands your needs?
