Liz Earle Superskin™ Face Serum

I was asked by Mumsnet in conjunction with Liz Earle to try their Superskin Face Serum. I am not one for using anything like this really as anything I ever use seems to make my skin greasy and cause a breakout of spots! I discovered witch hazel when I was pregnant and that has been brilliant at keeping my skin clear but I haven't used anything else.

Here’s what Liz Earle has to say, “Enriched with our most powerful naturally* active ingredients, our luxurious and fast-absorbing Superskin™ Face Serum is your new ally for truly radiant, youthful-looking skin. Add Superskin™ Face Serum to your morning regime to…
1. Even skin tone – with Persian silk tree extract to help fight the visible signs of fatigue, such as a dull complexion. 
2. Lift and firm – with pomegranate flower extract to help boost collagen. 
3. Plump and smooth – with rhubarb extract to help intensely hydrate skin". 
*Contains naturally active ingredients

I liked the fact it is full of natural ingredients and also the fact it was supposed to even up skin tone as my skin is a little blotchy.

So I have been using the serum once a day for a week, occasionally twice a day, Liz Earle's website does have directions for use but you can't view them on a mobile or tablet, you have to log onto a proper pc/laptop which is a bit annoying. I used the serum after applying witch hazel to clean my skin.

I actually can't believe how much difference it has made to my skin. It really has evened up the skin tone and also plumped and smoothed it. I never wear foundation and make up, never have, so this has really made a difference - my skin looks so much healthier! I always thought these things were a bit of a gimmick and never thought it would actually work but this does.

It isn't cheap at £48 for 30ml but you do only need a little bit so I would think it would last you a while.
