Review | Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer

I have been wanting to try this product for so long. When I first started using Liz Earle products, besides the famous Hot Cloth Cleanser I was dying to try out the Skin Tonic, purely because I didn't really know what it was for. Do you drink it? Do you splash it on your face? I had only ever seen it in the full sized version and I kept telling myself to buy it to try it out but I never got round to doing so, that was until I managed to buy the Liz Earle Daily Rituals Set at Christmas which included a full-sized bottle of the Hot Cloth Cleanser, the Superskin Concentrate for Night (which is amazing) and a mini bottle of the Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer.

About the Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic:
"This heavenly floral-scented, non-drying toner refreshes, soothes and brightens your skin. Gentle and alcohol-free, it also adds a fine layer of moisture. Spritz onto a cotton wool pad and sweep over face and neck after using Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser. Alternatively spritz over face and body to revitalise at any time. Naturally active ingredients include organic aloe vera to revitalise and soften and calendula, chamomile, cucumber and natural source vitamin E to soothe and refresh the skin."

The Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic comes in two variations bottle wise, either a pour bottle or a spray version. Strangely, the spray version is ever so slightly more expensive than that of the regular bottle but either way, they both do the same job and you still get the same results, regardless of how it comes out of the bottle. The idea of the Instant Boost Skin Tonic is to refresh and revitalize the skin after cleansing and because the tonic is packed full of naturally active ingredients, it also really helps to soothe and refresh the skin without drying it out or irritating it.

I apply the Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic simply by spritzing across a clean, cleansed face, either before I go to bed as a little refresher or before I put my makeup on to give my skin a bit of moisture before I apply a heavy layer of make-up. I thought the spritzer would produce a really fine layer of the tonic, almost like a mist just to delicately coat the face but no, this spritzer means business! Rather than a really light, gentle release of product it comes out so quickly it is almost as if it is blasting you in the face. That said, it feels really refreshing and soothing on the skin and oh the smell is wonderful. It is a quite perfumed, florally scent and it is quite strong but it smells so lovely. I love the smell of it although I am sure it won't be to everyone's tastes.

Results wise it really does boost and perk the skin up and it feels really refreshing on the skin before applying make-up but I am really unsure if I would buy a full-sized version after trying this 30 ML bottle. I love the smell of the Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic and it is so refreshing and uplifting on the skin without drying it out but if I had to describe the product as a whole in one word then it would be 'nice'. It is nice. It smells nice, it gives a nice refreshing feel to the skin but if I were to run out of it I wouldn't be scrambling online to order a new bottle. It is a nice, refreshing product which makes the skin feel and look nice but do I need another product which does that? Probably not, no. It is nice, though.

  1. You perfectly well describe the issue I have with most tonics and mists: except for the nice scent and feeling on the skin, I find it hard to notice visible results on the skin, that's why I don't repurchase most of them and stick to the (few) ones I like!
