Liz Earle Lotions & Potions♥

Winter is a horrible time of year for our skin, constantly going from hot to cold can dry the skin out and it can become irritated so it is really important that you remember to moisture your body as well as your face. That is something I always forget to do, easily done as I have a habit for my facial routine but always forget to whip out the body creams. However that bad habit has finally been kicked! 

I have been trying a load of body lotions, and I thought I would share my thoughts on two that have stood out recently for me. From Liz Earle their Superskin Body Cream and their Nourishing Botanical Body Cream. Both lovely products to use. 

Silly me though I seem to have misplaced my little tube of the Liz Earle Superskin so you will only get some snaps of the other one today, when I find it I will update the post. Sorry guys!

♥Superskin Body Cream♥
This is a really rich intensive body lotion, that is a dream to apply with its rich aromatic scent, I love catching a whiff of myself after using this. Formulated with 25% plant oils to help aid that intense surge of moisture into your skin. With "East African shea butter, organic rosehip oil, antioxidant cranberry seed oil and pomegranate extract, natural source vitamin E, plus the divine scent of neroli" it's great for your skin, I like to try use natural products when I can as I feel they are better for the skin.

Specifically I suffer from really dry skin on my legs that around my joints can become rather cracked, this is what I jump straight to use when it begins to worsen mixed with a little of the Liz Earle Superbalm just to assure that my skin is super soft. 

I can't recommend this enough, I only have a small tube but it has lasted me a good couple of weeks so if you just want to try it you can, before getting the full 200ml. I REALLY need to get my hands on another tube soon! It has become a favourite of mine.. oops!!

Grab yours on-line or on QVC

200ml £27.50
50 £12.00

♥Nourishing Botanical Body Cream♥
This is another good product from Liz Earle, I prefer to use this on my upper body as the smell is divine. That is one of the things that draws me into Liz Earle products I always adore the smell and this body cream is no exception. With a heavenly mix of Pure Orange, Lavender and Rose-scented geranium oils it is a relaxing and dreamly lotion to apply, lifting your spirits with the scent.

Unlike the Superskin cream I don't feel this is as rich, but instead lighter which I like as it sinks in quicker. It doesn't compromise on the hydrating side of things, this is a great long lasting body cream. Very silky on the skin. I like the fact it isn't as rich. It is a soothing cream mainly due to the relaxing aroma is gives, it really is a pleasure to unwind after a stressful day in the bath then apply this after.

Price point it is cheaper than the Superskin so if you want to try a Liz Earle body cream but don't want to spend too many pennies then this is a better option.

Grab yours on-line or on QVC
200ml £15.50
50ml £6.00
30ml £4.50

These are the only two body products I have tried from Liz Earle, however I have heard good things about their Energise body range so it's on my list of things to try in 2011 along with their hand repair cream. I adore their foot care range, their is a review coming of it all tomorrow!
