Skin


Since the time I started getting serious about my skin and skincare, the first few brands that I was more intrigued to try after hearing great things about it was Liz Earle, and that is like 5 years back. The products were available only in the UK and I was waiting to get my hands on this on my next visit their but then all the products I am using and testing, I was not able to try these. Finally, I had the chance to try and test these for last few months and finally going to share them with you. Liz Earle Beauty Co. was founded on the tranquil shores of the UK’s Isle of Wight which has launched exclusively in the US at QVC and qvc.com. The products are inspired by nature, using some of the finest quality botanical ingredients, Liz Earle offers a range of award-winning skincare that really works for all ages and skin types.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser is the hero product of the brand, one sells every 15 seconds around the globe. Cleanse & Polish is a rich cream that instantly removes daily grime, pollutants, and makeup, even stubborn mascara while the pure cotton cloth that comes complimentary with it, gently exfoliates without stripping skin, lifting away dead skin cells to reveal a healthy-looking glow. The ingredients of Cleanse & Polish are the carefully chosen blend of botanical ingredients designed to optimize skin condition, including cocoa butter to soften, smooth, and moisturize, and rosemary, chamomile and eucalyptus to tone, smooth, and purify.

I massage Cleanse & Polish onto dry skin over my face and neck, finishing over my eye area. Then I rinse the pure cotton cloth in warm water and wring out before gently polishing off the cream. Then I splash normal cool water on my face. I have been really loving this cleansing ritual, all makeup and the day’s grime just melts away and the hot cloth on the face feels so relaxing. The aroma of the product is herbal and really uplifts the senses. My skin feels clean and toned, ready for the next step.

Liz Earle Gentle Face Exfoliator

Liz Earle Gentle Face Exfoliator is a creamy exfoliator that gently buffs away dead skin cells and impurities to reveal smoother, more radiant skin. It is ideal for the dull, congested or flaky skin. The tiny biodegradable jojoba wax beads gently buff away surface debris. The smoothing benefits of Gentle Face Exfoliator come from a unique blend of botanical ingredients, selected for their skin refining properties, including purifying eucalyptus, skin softening cocoa butter, and gently exfoliating jojoba wax beads.

I apply two pumps of this exfoliator after cleansing and lightly massage onto the face and neck, avoiding the eye area. The beads are really soft in texture, not like the generic hard beads in an exfoliator. With gentle fingertip pressure and gentle friction of the beads, the dead skin cells slough away.  Then I rinse off with warm water and pat dry, then I move onto my serum and moisturizer. This is a nice addition to my exfoliators and I have already used it twice every week for last few months. It helps my pores clear and helps in no blocked pores. It is gentle on my combination skin and I do feel the beads are very smooth and does not give that scratchy kind of feeling when using it, the skin feels smooth and clear.

Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturizer

Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturizer is the third step in my skincare routine. Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturizer hydrates, smoothes and softens while plumping and balancing skin. It is rich in naturally active ingredients and is formulated with a nourishing blend of natural plant extracts, including GLA-rich British borage and avocado oils to moisturize, and echinacea and natural source vitamin E to condition the skin. The formula is lightweight and silky, suitable for normal and combination skin types. It is a nice moisturizer and makes my skin moisturized without giving that oily feel and residue. It does works perfectly on my combination acne prone skin. The formula sinks into the skin in no time and gives a beautiful glow.

Liz Earle Deep Cleansing Mask

Liz Earle Deep Cleansing Mask is a concentrated clay and botanical mask to refresh and rebalance oily, blemish-prone skin, leaving it calmed and deeply cleansed. Deep Cleansing Mask has been formulated with a special blend of botanical ingredients, including purifying green clay and soothing manuka honey, propolis and aloe vera, plus the uplifting fragrance of rose-scented geranium. I apply it on clean, dry skin after cleansing, leave it on for 10-15 minutes and then remove it with the thoroughly rinsed sponge which is included with the mask. It does work pretty well as a spot treatment for the blemishes and the problem areas. This has become a regular mask in the rotation when I need deep cleansing and feel some congestion or breakouts are going to appear.

Liz Earle Superskin Concentrate for Night

Liz Earle Superskin Concentrate for Night is a rich, aromatic concentrate for the face, neck, and decollete. The ingredients include softening argan oil and rosehip oils, and the soothing scent of neroli, lavender, and chamomile essential oils. With all the ingredients, it smells amazing. This concentrate works great on the nights my skin needs some massage, I take a pump of it in my palms and breathe in the aroma, massage into the skin in an upward and outward motion using firm pressure. With the fingertips, I gently smooth in an outward circular direction along the cheekbones to above the eyebrows. Then I finish by gently sweeping my hands up the neck and down over the decollete. As I have combination skin, I take one and a half pump of it and feel it is enough for me. I feel my skin is plump, bright, and smooth in the morning when I do my massage ritual on the night before. It is a great choice to treat the skin.

With a beautiful range of products and something for every skin type, I am happy to share them along with my thoughts on these. I highly recommend you to check this line. This is one of my posts from the series of skincare posts dedicating to the brands I am loving and been testing since last few months.

Skincare has been my priority since last five years and I am glad I have been getting more and more serious with time while at the same time. I am getting to know my skin better. At one time, I am testing a number of products and I have so many amazing new finds to share with you guys, expect a regular series of posts on skincare products I have been testing since last few months. I usually share about skincare products when I feel I am ready, I do not rush when it comes to skincare, because one thing might work for me and same could not work for another skin type. Being in my 30s, I feel more importance of skincare and skincare products that I am using on mine skin. Aging is a natural process, the only thing I can do for myself is to maintain what I have so that it is the better version of what I could have been at any age. Today, I am sharing few products from Fresh Beauty which I have been enjoying. I have used the Fresh Sugar Lip treatments reviewed here and also the Fresh hand creams are my favorite.

Fresh Soy Face Cleanser

The first thing I noticed about this cleanser is how gentle it is and another great thing is it can be used on the gentle eye area. Many of the cleansers out there are either advised to be used anywhere but not around the gentle eye area or some might sting or irritate the eye area. This cleanser has become a skincare staple for me, it is so gentle on my eye area as well as works perfectly to clean the face without stripping it. The cleanser is gel-like, so lightweight, very easy to use and gently washes away with water. I am really impressed, no doubt why this cleanser is sold one every minute around the world. There is a limited edition version which is double the size of the full-sized version, perfect to stock up on your favorite and if you are new to the brand and the cleanser, there is the smallest size version which is good enough to use for few weeks. I am definitely a fan of this cleanser and highly recommend.

It is a great toner which I am going to use this summer once a day and definitely twice a day during season change and in winters.

The packaging of the Phyto Lip Delight is so beautiful and luxurious. The applicator is one of the best I  have used, the applicator tip dispenses the perfect amount of balm to infuse the lips with the silky, oily texture that massages during application. It can be worn alone for a naturally luminous smile or can be layered on the top of lipstick to add shine and comfort while reinforcing the color.

Sisley Paris Phyto - Lip Delight

I have been using the Phyto-Lip Delight regularly since last few weeks and it is one of the most amazing lip formulas I have tried, the texture is gel-like balmy and it literally melts once applied to the lips. It does not look overly shiny or oily but is perfect to give a luminous look which looks very beautiful. My lips which are dry and do peel time to time when I am not caring for them enough, I am seriously in love with these new launches. They are perfect for applying anytime and I do carry one in my handbag, they give a subtle luminosity and a slight hint which is what I prefer on most of the days at work and even it is perfect as an overnight lip treatment.  My lips are soft, feel nourished, and appear plump since I am using these. Even after the product has worn off, my lips do feel hydrated. It stays on well even when I apply it as a topper on another lip product, stays on well and keeps the lipstick stay longer and look shiny. It is hard to choose a favorite, I have been using the #3 cool as a topper on my lipsticks and #1 and #2 give a beautiful subtle hint of color on the lips and even over a lipstick to give shine and radiant color.

Another favorite from Sisley Paris these days is the new Hydra Global Serum which I have been loving since last two months, my skin is dehydrated time to time, I have linked it here for your reference.

I will first start with what and why of hydration for any skin type. From skin hydration, your mind may first think of dry skin or skin lacking the hydration causing it to be dull or lifeless. But if you have ever experienced dehydrated skin, with your skin being a combination, normal or oily, you might know there is a big difference. Dehydrated skin is a condition of the skin that might come and go, based on external factors, like your diet, stress, or season but in case of dry skin, it is a skin type and not a skin condition. I believe all the skin types need hydration and it depends on the skin type, what kind and quantity of hydration are best suitable for it to maintain and improve its state and condition. There is an in-depth article explaining the difference between dehydrated and dry skin here if you are interested to read more. I am going to talk about the hydration power duo from Sisley Paris, one is a new launch and other is from existing skincare collection, Sisley Paris Hydra-Global Serum, and Sisley Paris Hydra-Global.

Sisley Paris Hydra-Global Serum, and Sisley Paris Hydra-Global

Sisley Paris Hydra-Global Serum – Anti-Aging Hydration Booster

Sisley Paris Hydra-Global Serum – ‘Anti-Aging Hydration Booster is the first fundamental daily step in reinforcing the skin’s power of auto-hydration. To boost the skin’s intensive natural hydration, it acts on the 3 key stages of the water cycle by using the power of key ingredients of natural origins. Meticulously selected by the Sisley laboratories, two new ingredients, Blue Agave Yeast Extract from Mexico and Carob Seed Extract make up the heart of this serum. They target the production of hyaluronic acid (a key molecule in hydration) in order to retrain skin to conserve water. In effect, it naturally rehydrates it from within, re-infusing it with suppleness. The Hydra-Global Serum also promotes water circulation in the epidermis. By supporting the creation of an “airtight barrier,” water loss is minimized and long-lasting retention of water in the skin is better optimized. Re-hydrated from within, the skin looks more beautiful and lastingly hydrated and supple. It’s fresh, delicate and light texture leaves a bare-skin sensation allowing daily skin care to be applied immediately. A veritable sensorial experience.’

Sisley Paris Hydra-Global Serum, and Sisley Paris Hydra-Global

Sisley Paris Hydra-Global Serum is a new addition to my skincare routine since last month and I have been really enjoying using the serum. The time I get a pump of this serum on my fingertips, the delicate fragrance, kind of herbal in simple words, a blend of Sage, Lavender, and Marjoram essential oils gives way to a fresh and relaxing experience. One pump is enough for my face and I take another for my neck and decollete. The texture is very smooth, looks like a gel but is refreshingly creamy. It soaks into the skin fairly quickly. I have been using it day and night for five days in a week for almost a month and love the results. My skin is a combination but it does experience dehydration time to time, when I am in a period of stress or due to hormonal reasons or during the season change. It was the perfect time to start texting the serum during this seasonal change and then continuing till now in almost summer. The serum is light-weight and does not leave any residue after application, the fragrance fades away after application. My skin is more supple and feels moisturized. There are no dry areas on my skin, but it all looks more even and plumped I would say. Another word I would like it to describe is my skin looks and feel healthy. At first, I was not feeling easy to start testing it as I am prone to congestion and I am very careful in choosing the products for my skin type, but this one is a winner. I totally agree, it is suitable for all skin types and pertains the amount of hydration that your skin needs, not less and not more than that. I have experienced no breakouts or congestion from this product. My skin looks radiant and evener.

Sisley Paris Hydra-Global  

Sisley Paris Hydra-Global – ‘Intense Anti-aging Hydration is an intensive hydrating, anti-aging skincare product designed to provide a comprehensive solution to the phenomenon of skin dehydration. Hydra-Global moisturizer works with the serum to restore the skin’s natural moisture balance and restart hydration functions deep within the epidermis by maintaining a continuous level of hydration. Apply the cream-gel texture morning and night to the face and neck after applying the serum.’

Sisley Paris Hydra-Global Serum, and Sisley Paris Hydra-Global

This is a very lightweight cream-gel moisturizer that I use after using my Hydra-Global serum. I do feel the Hydra-Global serum sets a beautiful base to make the skin more acceptable to the added benefits and hydration from this moisturizer. I massage it in circular motions on my skin including the neck and decollete area. It soaks into the skin pretty fast and perfects to seal all the benefits from the Hydra-Global Serum with added benefits of Hydra-Global into the skin. Both the products do work really nicely in harmony giving the optimal amount of hydration that the skin needs and the results are beautiful, radiant, long-lasting hydration making the skin supple and plumped with fewer wrinkles.

The delicate fragrance of the Hydra-Global Collection from the blend of Sage, Lavender, and Marjoram essential oils gives way to a fresh and sleek olfactive signature for this rehydrating duo makes it a relaxing experience to use and apply. Both the products are really worth checking out if you have any type of skin and do feel there is lack of hydration whether it is occasional or regular, there might be early signs of aging, or it may be due to any environmental or hormonal factors like stress, fatigue, wind, pollution which disrupt and weaken skin’s natural hydration mechanisms.. As per my belief, hydration is the key to maintain and improve any kind of skin condition, and when the hydration is provided in the amount that the skin needs, the skin will definitely appreciate it giving you the most beautiful and radiant results.

Sisley Paris Hydra Global Collection including Sisley Paris Hydra-Global Serum and Sisley Paris Hydra-Global is available at Holt Renfrew, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Nordstrom.

It is an innovative beauty line with natural-origin active ingredients, in tune with the times, as minimalist as it is effective.

The new launches have fresh sorbet textures causing a high pleasure experience. It contains prebiotic to resynchronize the skin flora and actively performs its role in maintaining the skin health. The Dior Hydra Life has a new hydrating Sorbet Program along with two irresistible cleansers which I am going to talk about.

Dior Hydra Life skin care

Dior Hydra Life new Sorbet Program covers all the daily skincare needs of women and men too. The common theme of all Dior Hydra Life range is the iconic ingredients of Hydra Life, Mallow, and Haberlea extracts, which boost water circulation within the skin and stimulate skin flora responsible for its natural defenses. The 3-step Sorbet Program is all about preparing the skin (Balancing Hydration with 2-in-1 Sorbet Water), rehydrating (Hydration Rescue with Intense Sorbet Cream), and awakening the look (Cooling Hydration with Sorbet Eye Gel). The two new formulas for cleansing, suitable for every skin type, are Micellar Milk – No-Rinse Cleanser and 3-in-1 Makeup Remover. As this post is about my skincare routine with Dior Hydra Life, I will start with the cleanser and then follow the steps until the last step in my routine to hydrate and moisturize my skin.

Dior Hydra Life Triple Impact Makeup Remover

Dior Hydra Life 3-in-1 Makeup Remover (CAD $42 – 125ml) is a triple impact makeup remover which cleanses, soothes, and beautify the skin. Dior Hydra Life 3-in-1 Makeup Remover is a bi-phase solution that removes heavier makeup even on sensitive areas of the face. It has three star ingredients: Lily extract that helps make the lashes appear more beautiful, day after day. A licorice-based ingredient soothes the eye contour and a cleansing complex eliminates all traces of makeup.

Dior Hydra Life skin care

I have been using it regularly to remove my makeup and it works really well to remove the makeup, even the long-wear makeup, heavy duty kind of makeup. Do make sure to shake it well before using as I did not shake it well few times and it does make a difference, I felt a little oily on the skin after using it. After shaking it well, I apply it with a cotton pad and remove the makeup. It did not irritate my eyes or my skin. My skin does not feel any tightness or dryness after using this, it feels clean and hydrated. It is not just good for eye makeup but I have used it to remove all whole face makeup with this, it works well. Then I move to my next step, either double cleansing with my cleanser or if I am in the mood of using Micellar Milk for not very heavy or permanent makeup for the whole face. Or I sometimes remove my eye makeup with the 3-in-1 makeup remover and then for my face, I use the Micellar Milk.

Dior Hydra Life Micellar Milk – No-Rinse Cleanser

Dior Hydra Life Micellar Milk – No-Rinse Cleanser (CAD $49 – 200ml) is the first micellar milk to combine the cleaning power of micelles and the nourishing richness of milk. As sensitive skin prefers milk to micellar water, while oily and combination skin love more aqueous products, Dior Hydra Life achieved the feat of combining the softness of a milk and the performance of a micellar water in one formula. Dior Hydra Life Micellar Milk – No-Rinse Cleanser has a luscious and fresh texture that transforms from milk into water upon contact with the skin. It has two star ingredients: Natural-origin micelles trap the most stubborn makeup particles and rice milk proteins help prevent nutritional deficiencies within the skin, and stimulate and rebalance skin flora affected by cleansing. It is suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive ones and is ideal for both face and eyes.

I use this Micellar Milk with a cotton pad, it is very creamy and smooth in texture. It removes the makeup pretty well, both from eyes and face. It is hydrating too, the skin does not feel right or irritated. My skin looks supple, fresh, nourished, and there is no greasy feeling.

Dior Hydra Life Balancing Hydration – 2 in 1 Sorbet Water

Dior Hydra Life 2-in-1 Sorbet Water (CAD $52 – 175ml) was developed in collaboration with the Dior Asian Innovation Center in Japan. Dior Hydra Life 2-in-1 Sorbet Water is fresh 2-in-1 beauty water that moisturizes and rebalances the skin. This product is designed to be used after cleansing the skin as the bare skin is both vulnerable and highly responsive. This crystalline lotion moisturizes the skin, strengthens its ecosystem and diminishes minor imperfections like dilated pores, shine, redness, and spots.

Dior Hydra Life skin care

Dior Hydra Life 2-in-1 Sorbet Water contains three star ingredients: Mineral powders which instantly minimize imperfections, the Fermented sugar which is a powerful prebiotic, stabilizes skin flora day after day, and Jasmine water which offers exceptional moisturizing power. I prefer applying this with cotton, but it works pretty well with hands too. I take few drops on my palms and then just press them into my skin. It did not make me break out or irritate my skin. My skin feels hydrated and soft, with regular use, I feel the texture of my skin is refined.

Dior Hydra Life Deep Hydration – Sorbet Water Essence

Dior Hydra Life Deep Hydration – Sorbet Water Essence (CAD $88 – 40ml) offers 3 actions in 1 single step: the ultra-concentrated moisturization of a serum, the radiance boost of a gentle peel and the toning effect of a lotion. It has a translucent blue liquid texture which offers a splash of freshness that instantly invigorates the skin. Deeply moisturized, the skin is smooth and clarified. The key ingredients include Mallow which deeply boosts aquaporin synthesis to invigorate water circulation, Haberlea leaf extract, as per Dior Science this is the first ingredient that is not only gentle on skin flora in its diversity but also, more importantly, stimulates the production of ingredients essential to its beauty. The natural fruit acids offer an extremely gentle peel for a delicate daily exfoliation of the skin. Dior Hydra Life Deep Hydration – Sorbet Water Essence is suitable for normal, oily, and combination skin types.

Dior Hydra Life skin care

I use it after the Sorbet Water and before the moisturizer or Intense Sorbet cream from the Hydra Life range. The serum applies nicely to the skin and sinks in quickly. I feel it works more than just giving hydration, my skin feels fresh, toned, and refined – making it look radiant and plump.

Dior Hydra Life Hydration Rescue – Intense Sorbet Cream

Dior Hydra Life Intense Sorbet Cream (CAD $82 – 50ml) is described as a multi-use rescue balm to comfort, nourish and strengthen the parched, uncomfortable epidermis with an incredibly lightweight butter texture. The can be perfect daily emergency skincare which acts on facial features like an intensive yoga session for the body, it soothes, softens, and strengthens. It has two star ingredients: Mallow butter which nourishes and strengthens skin barrier to keep water in cells maximizing its impermeability, and Chamomile extract which calms irritations. It also helps with skin redness, makes skin’s surface plump and smooth.

Dior Hydra Life skin care

It can be used in the daily skincare routine, and also as a night mask during periods of high sensitivity or when skin needs some extra care. It works great on dehydrated areas of the skin apart from the face, like hands, elbows, and knees. The texture of the cream is very smooth and creamy gel-like. It melts into the skin pretty well and makes the skin look fresh, plump, and smooth. Even for my combination skin, I do sometimes avoid too much moisture fearing breakouts and congestion but this is working pretty well.

Dior Hydra Life Cooling Hydration – Sorbet Eye Gel

Dior Hydra Life Sorbet Eye Gel (CAD $70 – 15ml) is described to deliver unique eye cube freshness to awaken the eye contour in the blink of an eye. This is just one in a kind of product I have used for a long time. The packaging and the product, they are both marvelous. The exclusive ceramic-applicator offers the effect of an ice cube to promote eye contour microcirculation The on-the-go format is very travel-friendly too. It is very much suitable to even the ultra-sensitive areas. It contains three star ingredients: Anti-inflammatory cornflower water instantly decongests the eyelids and puffiness, Micronized mineral powders illuminate and correct dark circles and Abyssinica oil is known to nourish, protect and strengthen the lashes and eyebrows.

I am seriously obsessed with the eye gel, it just melts into the skin and gives my tired eyes a really cool and fresh feel. The applicator and the product both work great together, my eyes feel relaxed and awake. I massage it into the eyelids, eyebrows, and temples, apart from working on the eye area, it relaxes and rejuvenates the area and the mind. I do notice the illumination it provides when applied and the area is moisturized and looks fresh and awake all day. I have been planning on keeping this eye gel in the fridge for the summer, it is cooling normally but would love some more cool fun in summer.

Overall, a nice range of products, very gentle yet effective. I am really enjoying using these products and would be great for all seasons. Hydration is the key, whether you have any type of skin, you need hydration and when the hydration comes with treatment like toning, refining, firming, and radiance, what else can you ask for more. Dior Hydra Life products are available at all Dior counters, Hudson’s Bay, BeautyBoutique by Shoppers Drug Mart, Nordstrom, Sephora, Holt Renfrew, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Neiman Marcus.

What do you think are your skin’s needs at this moment? Are you planning to pick anything from Dior Hydra Life? My must-haves are Dior Hydra Life Deep Hydration – Sorbet Water EssenceDior Hydra Life Hydration Rescue – Intense Sorbet Creamand Dior Hydra Life Sorbet Eye Gel. If you are looking for makeup removers, Dior Hydra Life Micellar Milk – No-Rinse Cleanser and the Triple Action makeup remover work really well.
