Liz Earle Superskin face serum is said to give you radiant, youthful-looking skin which sounds great doesn’t it? my skin has lost it’s radiance recently and I’m always looking for a magic potion to bring back my youthful looks so I’ve been trying it out to see if it does actually live up to its claims.
I won’t lie, when I first pumped some of the serum out on to my hand I was a little bit put off by the colour which is kind of taupe. I’m used to a clear serum so wasn’t expecting the colour at all, once you get past the initial shock of a coloured serum you then realise that it’s not just a coloured serum it’s also scented. I’ve waxed lyrical about my background in complementary therapy so scent, especially the scent of natural oils and botanical ingredients really doesn’t bother me at all in fact I really like them so as you can imagine I do like the scent of this product which is more fruity than floral.
So how does the superskin face serum work and how can it help my skin? It even’s out skin tone with the Persian silk tree extract which helps to fight the visible signs of fatigue, such as a dull complexion. Stress is one of the causes of my dull complexion, I’ve been under a lot of stress at work recently since taking on some new clients and as a consequence my skin has really lost it’s brightness.
My chin area is sagging a bit, I put weight on then lost some and my skin didn’t really recover, the pomegranate flower extract can help to boost collagen which in turn can lift and firm the skin. The rhubarb extract helps hydrate the skin which plumps and smoothes it out, my skin craves hydration and has done ever since I hit my thirties.
I’ve used the superskin face serum daily for 7 days so far, I find all I need is one pump of the product which I apply all over my face with my fingertips, I like to press it in to the skin after a light smoothing over and I leave it for around 5 minutes to fully absorb before applying my moisturiser. The serum isn’t oily or sticky like some I have used in the past, it’s more of a cross between a gel and light cream which absorbs incredibly well into the skin.
After just one week my skin brightness has already improved and I’ve noticed some firmness to my face especially around my chin and jaw area. I’m quite happy to go out without using foundation or tinted moisturiser as my skin tone has improved and my redness has calmed down. I’ve even had a few people commenting on how healthy I look and it’s certainly not down to my diet this week!
It’s incredibly refreshing to use a skincare product that lives up to it’s claims and I’m looking forward to using this into winter as that’s when my skin really takes a bashing due to central heating and the weather outside.
The Liz Earle superskin face serum retails at £48
