Skincare On The Go | Liz Earle Essentials Try-Me Kit

Liz Earle Essentials Try-Me Kit Travel Sizes - Aspiring Londoner

I've been away quite a few times in the last couple of weeks.  At times like this, I get lazy with skincare, and my skin punishes me for it!  This time I was taking no chances.  At the moment, god knows in how many years, my skin is finally in a happy place (I have probably jinxed it now!).  I brought out the big guns and took along a favourite skincare range, Liz Earle.

The Liz Earle Essentials Try-Me Kit, £23 is just the perfect thing for travelling as they have the four important things for your skincare – cleanser, toner, moisturiser and mask.  There are kits suited for each skin type and comes in a handy little travel pouch.  Mine was actually a little different from the link, as I didn’t have the eye makeup remover and had a face mask in my kit instead.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, 30ml

Good old C&P!  My skin loves this, so I knew it wouldn’t react badly to it.  I have previously reviewed this (here) in comparison with another similar cleanser, but don’t think many can compare to the LE C&P.  Great thing about this kit is that, it also comes with a muslin cloth.  So you’re completely set!

Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic, 50ml

I have never used the tonic before, so was intrigued.  It’s a clear liquid and smells nice too.  I applied it to a cotton pad and swiped it over my cleansed face and neck.  I found this to be really refreshing and cooling, and I liked that it seemed to make my skin feel really fresh and ‘clean’.  It’s hard to describe, but I really enjoyed using this tonic, may have to repurchase a full bottle!

Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser, 15ml

This is probably the only thing in the kit that I didn’t ‘love’.  The consistency was a little thick for my liking (although my kit was for oily/combination skin).  The fragrance wasn’t as nice as the C&P or the tonic.  It moisturised, but that’s it.  It’s not bad, just isn’t amazing.  Perhaps the other products were too nice and raised my expectation!

Liz Earle Brightening Treatment Mask™

This mask promises to revitalise dull skin.  We all need some of that from time to time.  So while I was lounging around in the hot tub (more on that on a later post!); I slathered this all over my face.  It has a cream consistency and dries on the skin but not like traditional mud masks; more like a yoghurt setting.  It’s easy enough to be removed with a muslin cloth.  My skin felt smooth after wards, after a few uses, I could really see some brightening effects on my skin.  Really pleased with the mask (because I need more to add to my stash, right?!)

This kit was really impressive as I got to try out four different products, and all of them were good for my skin.  It’s good value for money too, as the products last a while.  I’ve been away for over a week, and I still have a lot of products left.  I’ll be saving these for my next trip.

What’s your go-to skincare when away from home?  Have you tried any of the mentioned Liz Earle products?  Leave a comment below or tweet me @aspiring_london!
