Review: Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic


Hi loves! This weeks post is on Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic (200ml, 19 EUR). It has been my morning and evening toner.


The toner comes in a plastic bottle and it opens by twisting the cap. Its floral scented toner which is alcohol free. It refreshens the skin and also shoots and brightens it. It fits all skin types and their products are not tested on animals.

The toner contains active ingredients like aloe vera, which provides hydration. Calendula, chamomile and cucumber sooth and refresh the skin and also is natural source vitamin E. Pure essential oils of rose-scented geranium, lavender and sweet orange help to restore the skin.


I put some of it on the cotton pad and apply it on the skin and it leaves my skin refreshed and it doesn't dry it out. Ever since I started using it and it has been more then a month my skin has cleared up more and looks brighter. I don't think it was all this toner, but it definetly helped. 

Ingredients: AquaAloe barbadensis (aloe vera) leaf juice, Glycerin, PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oilTocopherol (vitamin E)Cucumis sativus (cucumber) fruit extractAnthemis nobilis (chamomile) flower extractCalendula officinalis (calendula) flower extractHumulus lupulus (hops) extractPhenoxyethanolPanthenolAllantoinParfumBenzoic acidTocopheryl acetateDehydroacetic acid, Sodium hydroxideEthylhexylglycerinLinaloolLimoneneCitronellolGeraniolCoumarinCitric acidPotassium sorbate.

I got all the info about the ingredient hazard levels from EWG's Skin Deep Cosmetics Database (link). (Low hazard, moderate hazard, high hazard). I  just want to say it doesn't say anywhere on their page that their products are natural (I usually review only natural products in this blog), but the brand gave me a feel like they are more natural and skin friendly. Thats also the reason why I took closer look of the ingredients.

The toner does contain ingredients, which are high hazard level, but I didn't experience any irritation or brake outs. I think the toner is not good for sensitive skin because it contains fragrance. My personal experience has only been good with it.


If you are interested in this toner you can find it on their page here. Its also available on Feelunique (link).


Have you tried the brand before?

Review: Mastic Spa Deep Hydra Mask


Hi loves! If you have read my other blog you already know I have been loving Mastic Spa Deep Hydra Mask (link, 50ml, 26.02 EUR).


It comes in a glass jar and I use a brush to take the product out and apply to my face. Otherwise it would be a mess to use. The formula of it is thick and applying it will take some time (to get even application everywhere). It doesn't contain any parabens or mineral oil.

It provides deep hydration and softens the look of fine lines. It contains wine, which is rich with tartaric acid and it provides hydration to the skin and also has anti aging properties. Also contains ingredients like chestnut extract, mastic, chamomile, aloe and other organic extracts, which protect the epidermis and leave the skin firmer and velvety.


How to use:
I apply it on dry cleansed face with a brush. I let it be on the skin till its completely dry (which takes about 15 minutes). After that I remove the mask and it can hurt a little, because its peel off mask.



I have oily skin and this hydrating mask is perfect for my skin type. It leaves my skin hydrated, matte and silky smooth. I also feel my skin is firmer and I always have a great makeup days, because it also took away all my dead skin cells. My skin really does feel velvety ;) Down below you can see before and after picture.


If you are interested in this mask you can find it here and they do deliver in EU and other parts of the world.

I have never tried anything like this before and I'm really happy with the results I get with it. My skin feels like new after I use it and I'm excited to try something else from the brand :)
