Review: Liz Earle Superskin Body Cream

Thursday, November 25, 2010

Winter's here and my skin needs all the nourishment it can get to fend off the harsh elements. One of the body moisturisers I've been using regularly is Liz Earle's Superskin Body Cream and I think the time has come to share my thoughts on it.

First of all - great packaging. I love the large plastic tube it comes in, which makes the moisturiser easy to dispense and carry around if needed. The consistency is just right, not too thick, certainly not watery thin and it absorbs easily.

It's rich and extremely moisturising thanks to the mixture of shea butter, rosehip and cranberry seed oil that it contains. In fact, I really like the oils in this formula as they really contribute to keeping the skin moisturised after application so there's no fear of dry skin creeping up on you three hours later which is what I've experienced with other body moisturisers in the past. This will be great for mature skins and those with extra dry skin.`


However it's not all fun and games here as there are two things I'm not too keen on. First of all, the smell. I find the lavender (I'm not a lavender fan - at all) and neroli a little overbearing. However my OH really likes it, so proof yet again that everybody's palette is different and that my opinion shouldn't dissuade you from checking it out and making up your own mind. Personally, I'd have just preferred a more neutral scent.

Secondly, the price. A full size 200ml tube costs £27.50 and the only other option available is 50ml which costs £12.50 and is far too small. I don't purchase travel size items so 50ml is no good for me. I genuinely think this is a great moisturiser, but I'm reluctant to pay almost £30 for it. Thank goodness for Ebay, eh?

It's a shame as this is one of my favourite Liz Earle products, a great body moisturiser that keeps my skin feeling soft and supple.

How much is it? £27.50 (200ml tube)
Where can I buy it from? £27.50

i have this and love it too.. but I find i need something thicker/oilier on the body for the dryer, colder and wintery months xx

I'm wanting to try this, but is a bit expensive!

I have this and reviewed it on my blog, but I actually found the packagign very fiddly, I think because it is so thick it probably deserves a tub or something. Near the end it gets increasingly difficult to get any product out.
It is amazing though, something that is my staple over winter!

@Amelia - It's nice isn't it? Luckily I find the thickness just right for my skin type.

@Stylefrost - Yeah, it is a bit!

@Nikki - Really? My cream moves easily in the tube and I don't think I'll have any trouble getting it out - if I do, I'll just cut the top off! LOL
