Review: Liz Earle Gentle Face Exfoliator

I have quite problematic skin and have often struggled to find an exfoliator that doesn't irritate my skin.  In my recent skin care post I spoke about how I've been incorporating my Clarisonic into my daily routine. However, when my skin just isn't feeling it, I've been reaching for Liz Earle's 'Gentle Face Exfoliator'.  

Firstly, I was pretty much sold when I read the word 'gentle'. This exfoliator uses jojoba beads to gently buff away dead skin cells, eucalyptus oil to help purify skin and finally cocoa butter and almond oil to leave skin feeling moisturised.  After using this exfoliator, my skin is left feeling extremely clean and smooth without feeling stripped or raw.

As you can see above, the exfoliator is quite thick (I would actually describe it as cleanse and polish with added exfoliating beads, it smells pretty much the same too!), and the richness of the product makes it feel extremely luxurious to use.  To use, I lightly massage the product onto my face in circular motions before using warm water to rinse the exfoliating beads and any residue away.

If you want to add a gentler exfoliator to your collection, Liz Earle's 'Gentle Face Exfoliator' is perfect.  It provides the perfect balance of richness to exfoliation for my skin.  Importantly, on the Liz Earle website it is stated that this product isn't suitable for sensitive skin, however I have fairly sensitive skin and had no adverse reaction!

What are your favourite exfoliators?

Love Nicola

    1. Thanks Ann! It's lovely, especially if you're looking for something that won't be too harsh or abrasive on your skin! x


I do love a good comment!
