Another moisturiser review! Skincare is always a favourite of mine to try out and review, so when I was asked to review this I was thrilled!! In past posts and twitter I had been moaning about the sorry state of my skin, it was just so dry and tight… generally uncomfortable.
For the last few weeks I have been using this day and night, and while it is very good I do still have an issue with it.
It goes on very smoothly and a little goes a long way with this, at night I always use a little bit more just to really hydrate my skin as much as possible. It smells nice too, quite fresh and I can really smell the rosehip in it which I was a little hesitant about as rosehip oil tends to make my skin feel quite dry. It is an amazing consistency as well very mid range so it isn’t to watery and its not thick as you can see below:
The only problem with this is that it tends to sweat… sounds gross right? Well it kind of is… I apply a small amount of this in the morning after my shower and I can feel beads of ‘sweat’ all over my t-zone. This has never happened with any other moisturisers so it is a very strange feeling to have to dab your face of oil before applying any foundation. I should also note that it also sweats on the lid, like there is some kind of condensation going on in there… strange! This is for very dry/mature skin so that may explain the excess oil. Skin that is extremely dry may not have this problem because your skin would just drink it all up! I can imagine this moisturiser being a great relief for people who suffer from very dry skin!
Apart from the sweating though, it really has done wonders for my skin. My face no longer feels like its being stretched within an inch of its life, I don’t have flaky skin and everywhere just looks more hydrated and plump. It is also an excellent point that it hasn’t broken me out, which is amazing for me because my skin is so temperamental… a bit like me 😉
It is pricey, but worth it in my eyes! I love how Liz Earle does trial/travel sized products as well! 50ml – £33.20 15ml – £12.25
