Oh How I've Missed You or Liz Earle Haul

You guys have seen me yoyoing between different skincare brands since March, and none of them have given me the results that the Liz Earle Range did. I did a post way back during blogmas that was a review of the Liz Earle Range. So since I had some left, I went back to it as soon as I emptied my Kate Somerville cleanser, which if you click that link you'll see my review of. Then I was immediately reminded of how much I loved it, so I placed an order as soon as I could.

I ordered the July Essentials kit and got the Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, Instant Skin Boost Tonic, Skin Repair Light Moisturizer which is for oily/combination skin, and 2 pure muslin cloths.

It also came with this Energizing Hip and Thigh Gel as your complimentary gift for ordering the Essentials kit. It claims to leave the skin feeling softer, firmer and more toned, and despite it's name
is meant to be used on your arms, legs and stomach. I'm a bit curious, and as it was free I'm willing to give it a go, and probably a review.

Bonus with every order they sneak in a trial size, I got the Cleanse and Polish that came with a mini  Muslin Cloth

How cute is their packaging by the way? I love when companies take the extra time to make their wrapping pretty. The could have just thrown it in some bubble wrap or packing peanuts. but no they actually took the time to tissue paper it all up and make it look more like a present rather than just something I ordered. It was so pretty I almost didn't want to unwrap it. fashionandhappythings-9467fashionandhappythings-9468

You may notice I didn't order a mask or any treatments. Well I have a plan, you see I tend to get bored of my routine, I usually like to try new things when I run out. But I've learned that I can't be doing that anymore, and that I need to keep the core of my skincare routine the same, so to speak. But I've also noticed that switching masks doesn't irritate my skin, so long as it's gentle and is for my skin type. Same goes for Serums and things like that.  And there's my plan so to speak, to keep from getting bored of my routine, I'm going to be trying new masks and treatments, while keeping the core of my routine the same. I'm actually really excited about this.

That's not to say I wouldn't try any new skincare items if I was given them. Liz Earle isn't perfect, I did still get the odd cyst here and there while I was using it. Which is why I ended up switching in the first place, I had gone to try the Murad mask and saw they had the mask in a beginners kit for the same price as the mask on it's own. Well you saw how that worked out, and how the mask fared when compared to the Caudal├Če Purifying Mask. So if you think there might be something better out there for me, then let me know either in the comments below, or send me an email which can be found on my PR page or check out my contact me page.
