Liz Earle and her naturally active skincare products landed on American shores in late 2008 with relatively little fanfare, though clearly some celebs who'd been introduced to her brilliance across the pond did take note. While I delighted in the Tiffany-blue packaging at first, I soon lost the beauty butterflies when I cut myself quite badly on the moisturiser's weapons-grade plastic container and noticed an overly-earthy scent somewhat reminiscent of dark organic Wisconsin beer. Fast forward four months later to, well, today and I'm distraught by the finger tip's length remainder of product at the bottom my moisturizer. As an editor I test product all the time. Many are brilliant, some with lots of bells and whistles but there are very few (especially moisturizers) that I feel are just so simple and well suited to me that they are in fact part of me. Clearly my passion for beauty has gone too far but my point is, this earthy moisturiser is perfect. Most of its active ingredients could also be baked into a pie. It adjusts brilliantly to changes in moisture levels due to seasonal variations, and perhaps most importantly its calming nourishment never once caused a breakout. Enjoy!
