Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare

Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare, Britain’s best kept beauty secret, was founded in 1995 by Liz Earle. Its main philosophy is to create products that really work on every skin type, using the finest quality naturally active ingredients. Liz Earle Skincare offers a simple, no-fuss routine yet very pampering or spa quality skincare routine for everyone.

The first time I encountered Liz Earle’s products was in Space NK Apothecary in Cheltenham, England, where I used to live few years ago. And last week was the first time I actually tried Liz Earle skincare products, and I’m surprised at myself for not trying them earlier. Liz Earle is my special treat skincare, very luxurious yet easy and simple to use. In fact Liz Earle’s Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser made me clean my face every morning and every night religiously! For women with a very hectic lifestyles, this concept is quite revolutionary:)

These are the Liz Earle products Talking Makeup tried and loved:

Laughter – The Iconic Space NK Fine Fragrance Collection

“The most wasted of days is one without laughter”-E.E Cummings.

Laughter, Space NK’s best selling fine fragrance, is available in a choice of indulgent gifts this holiday season. Rooted in Nicky Kinnaird’s personal memories of childhood, Laughter is an uplifting fragrance inspired by the Spanish Mediterranean Costa del Azahar, where the sun drenched orange groves sweep down to the sea.

Fresh citrus top notes of bergamot, grapefruit and lime are invigorated by the tonic effect of juniper berry, angelica root and verbena with refreshing aromatic notes of rosemary, fennel and coriander. The sensual woody base of patchouli, amber and musk is enlivened by a sweet, spicy bite of ginger.

Laughter Eau de Toilette, $80.00 (50ml)
Laughter Eau de Parfum, $95.00 (50ml)

The Fine Fragrances: Each fragrance explores the connection between scent and memory, combined with the spirit of travel and discovery.

Reminiscent of a romantic weekend in Rome, Tuberoli evokes a sense of indulgent femininity and intrigue. A flirtatious, white floral blend of tuberose, neroli and ylang ylang envelop a sensuous base of blackcurrant leaves and luscious peach.

Inspired by the breathtaking majesty and exoticism of Rajasthan, Champaca is deliciously earthy and sensual. This beguiling blend of the revered champaca flower and aromatic vetivert is spiced with cedar wood, rich amber crystals and black musk.

Space NK-Beauty and the Book

Face Value by Kathleen Baird-Murray
