With a botanical trio at its heart – coconut, radish seed & yangu oils – our miraculous Botanical Shine Nourishing Hair Oil is fast becoming one of your top favourites, just a year after launching in 2013. How did we survive without this speedy multi-tasker, we all cry?

Customers I meet in store, online or on paper have all been raving about this new find, and we’re talking all ages – be it the teenage daughter protecting her hair from her new styling tongs, the swimmer keeping her locks in top condition, the working mum speeding up her morning blow-dry, or the party-goer’s secret to super-shiny locks… take a peek at some of our customer testimonials.

I’m amazed at how it’s revolutionised my haircare and it’s now my top haircare product for all the family. I use it on my own fine, oily, (highly highlighted) hair – with great effect. For me, it’s both a quick-fix between washes to calm and de-frizz – as well as really adding shine and manageability before blow drying. My latest trick is to use it pre-shampoo, as a ‘10-min-leave-in’ treatment (I use five pumps), then wash and condition as normal. Though nothing quite takes the place of our Botanical Shine Treatment, our hair oil can double up in this clever way when you’re short on luggage space.

The other bonus? It lasts for ages. Experiment and truly get to know (and fall in love with) this bountiful hair oil and all the different ways you can use it.

You love it (I know, I’ve been keeping notes in my ‘customers love…’ notepad!) and here’s how you’re all using it:

  • An intensive treat following highlights or bleach
  • Defining layers
  • Defrizzing unmanageable, curly or dry locks and restoring manageability
  • Adding shine
  • Enlivening hair with the beautiful aroma of our haircare range (sweet orange, patchouli, geranium, vanilla absolute, rosemary, carrot seed, cedarwood, lemon)

Keep us posted with any new tricks that you’ve discovered with our hero oil too.

As the mum of two young sons, aged four and one, there’s only one thing on my Mothering Sunday wish list – a lie in! However, as the clocks go forward that morning, sadly that’s even less likely than usual. I do love having the chance to say thank you to the significant women in my life though, spending some time to reflect on what I have learnt from them and how they continue to support me in all that I do.  I am fortunate that this includes not only my own my mum, but also my grandmother and these days my mother-in-law as well.

In fact, it was my mum who introduced me to Liz Earle a few years ago, prior to my wedding, treating me to the daily essentials of cleanse, tone and moisturise to help get my skin ready for my big day. We’ve both been big fans ever since, loving the fuss-free simplicity of the products, but also the element of pampering luxury that the products bring to our daily skincare routine. Since then I have also introduced the range to my mother-in-law, who has found our Superskin range particularly beneficial to her very dry skin, as well as my grandma, who loves the luxury of our delicately scented products.

I am absolutely thrilled that this Mothering Sunday I can introduce my mum to the delights our new Indulgent Bath & Body collection. The perfect thank-you present for all marvellous mums, I know that she’ll love both the gentle Creamy Shower Nectar and the sumptuous Silky Body Lotion.

My mother-in-law is the gardener of the family, helping to put right my horticultural mishaps and keeping the family provided with beautifully fragrant flowers and wholesome home-grown vegetables from her stunning garden, which looks out across the tranquil Solent. So I’ve decided to treat her hardworking green fingers to two hero products – our multi-tasking ‘emergency skin salve’ Superbalm, which can be used to condition nails and cuticles as well as dry skin on hands, elbows and lips – and Superskin Hand Serum, which leaves hands looking visibly plumper, smoother and more rejuvenated with a potent botanical blend.

For my grandma, now well into her eighties, I could think of nothing better than the perfect partnership of our rich Hand Repair and Orange Flower Hand Wash, two of her favourite products which will take pride of place in her bathroom. My grandma’s home is very much the hub of our family life, frequented by her two children, five grandchildren and now her four young great-grandchildren as well. Our delicately fragranced Orange Flower Hand Wash is perfect for washing the hands of her keen little helpers or removing all traces of chocolate buttons sneaked behind mum and dads’ backs!

Wishing all you mums out there a wonderfully relaxing (and well-deserved!) Mother’s Day,

Thank you so much for reading, liking and commenting on my new blog – it makes writing on the train all the more worthwhile!

February and my birthday were fabulous! A day out in Whitby, girly dinners, seeing my brother – plus the sun shone on my birthday for the first time in years. Ibiza is all booked – my amazing team here at Liz Earle treated me to some gift vouchers for my birthday, which I can’t wait to spend on new sunglasses. Keep an eye out in June for my new sunglasses in Ibiza!

What I’m reading – I think I’ve set the bar rather high with Long Walk to Freedom, I learnt so much – including that Nelson Mandela was released on the 11th February (my birthday). I’ve just begun reading Steve Jobs’ autobiography and Birdsong by Sebastian Faulks.

What I’m wearing – My cousin is getting married in May so I’ve treated myself to a new silver Whistles skirt and top. I also love the new collection in COS and have just indulged in a silver dress… this metallic look is perfect for spring.

What I’m planning – My New Year’s resolution to make lots of plans is still going strong, my best friend of 31 years, Emily, and I are planning a belated 30th celebration in Las Vegas this Halloween, as it’s been a dream of ours to experience Halloween Stateside.

This month’s lifestyle tip: I’m still drinking three litres of water per day and still hailing the results. Last weekend, I met up with a girlfriend whom I haven’t seen for ages –  her first comment was how great my skin was looking, and she asked after reading last month’s blog whether I was still drinking three litres per day!  Answer was yes, and Sophia has now begun the water challenge!  Has anyone else tried and seen results?  Personally my skin looks clearer with less dehydration lines and I am sleeping well and not getting up in the night (a couple of customers asked me this in store this week). With spring firmly on its way, I’m also walking as much as possible. For the ultimate mood-boost, try opening your blinds/curtains as soon as you wake in the morning – and embrace the first bright mornings.

This month’s skincare tips: How can I tackle dark circles? This question was posted on last month’s blog and I have three vital solutions: water, sleep and diet! Nasal congestion, dehydration and lack of sleep can be a main cause of dark circles. Try doing some gentle massage movements to aid fluid retention – start at the bridge of the nose and sweeping down and across the cheek. If you’re having a late night or not sleeping, make sure you drink plenty of water and green tea throughout the day, cut down on dietary salts and quit smoking.
Daily Eye Repair is my go-to morning eye saviour – this three-in-one eye treatment helps conceal dark circles while diminishing fine lines, plus it contains mineral SPF10. I use it as a base for Light Reflecting Concealer – using these two products together gives me the bright-eyed look I’m after.

This month’s make up tip:
Sheer Skin Tint SPF15 is back!  Not that it ever went away!  I alternate between Signature Foundation and Sheer Skin Tint throughout the year – now that spring has officially sprung this is my makeup must-have for spring and summer.  I love the long-lasting dewy finish, buildable coverage and SPF 15.  I apply all over, add Light Reflecting Concealer, Healthy Glow Cream Blush and dust a little powder over the T-zone.

Let me tell you a little more about wonder-product, Light Reflecting Concealer. Personally I use Shade 2, which I apply under my eyes to disguise late nights and early mornings, as well as underneath brows to define, across the top of my cheek bones to highlight, then around my lips to smooth fine lines and create a base for lip colour.

I’m all about embracing spring – I aim to be in flip-flops occasionally by the end of the month and flashing my toes with our new Strengthening Nail Colour, Awakening.

It was wonderful to be back in the studio last week with the QVC team to celebrate 18 happy years on-air with Britain’s number one shopping channel! I especially enjoyed working with so many old friends, including our own lovely Caroline Archer and gorgeous model, Debbie Flett. It was quite an emotional trip down memory lane, remembering so many highlights over the years – from countless on-screen fits of the giggles with QVC presenter Jilly Halliday, to reminiscing over our first ever QVC sell-outs with Julia Roberts. It was also good to work with Chloe Everton for the first time and introduce her to so many of our classic best-sellers, many of which I was delighted to discover are already part of her own beauty routine. Off-air, Chloe showed me her travel bag, literally packed with Liz Earle beauty products and clearly her genuine personal favourites. Thank you for all the wonderful messages you’ve sent to the team and me over these very special few days – we do so appreciate hearing from you.

The last year has been an especially busy one for me personally, with the launch of my charity LiveTwice and setting up many of its projects, both in the UK and overseas. LiveTwice works with the disadvantaged in society to offer opportunity in a range of areas. We’ve established a home-from-home respite care house for children in the West Country as well as working with under-privileged young people in Gorton, Greater Manchester. We’ve set up community centres in Italy and Kenya, and a project to help destitute street children in East Africa. I’ve spent so many years travelling on research and field-trips that I’ve come across many areas of extreme need. It’s been wonderful to work with people dedicated to improving the lives of others, providing not just a hand-out but a practical hand-up in so many ways. I’m especially delighted that my eldest daughter Lily, now a newly qualified teacher, joined me as a Trustee with a special focus on youth work and social impact projects. She really is a rising star.

My travels in recent months have taken me back to Africa, not only for LiveTwice, but also as a newly appointed patron of Ace Africa. This amazing charity supports HIV-Aids orphans and vulnerable children, providing nutritious food and medical welfare. The Ace Africa team spends much of their time out in rural communities, teaching sustainable farming skills, such as how to grow vitamin-rich vegetables in space-saving containers, such as this hessian sack garden. Just a few, small, recycled sacks filled with homemade compost can help feed a family with nutritious food for weeks. It’s all about sharing the skills that make communities sustainable and self-supporting, improving quality of life where there is no official welfare provision – and something I hope to focus more on in the future.

My other future projects include exciting new product developments for the Liz Earle Beauty Co. I am so delighted to be back amongst the talented team here to bring you more of what we all expect – namely outstanding beauty products that really do deliver great results for us all. As a company, we’re all looking forward to celebrating 20 years of Great British Beauty next year, so watch this space for some truly wonderful new innovations and excitement.

Best wishes,

Liz

On Sunday 30th, I have a date with my two girls – a (girls only) lunch at our fabulous and fun local 1950s diner. I can’t wait! It’s going to be such fun, with a retro jukebox blowing out top tunes of the ‘50s (naturally), fabulous squishy-squashy booths to snuggle into, and endless yummy family favourites like corn on the cob, oven-baked potatoes and big homemade burgers, plus ice cream milkshakes. What could be more heavenly? I can’t wait to share Mothering Sunday with my two little lasses.

As I sit here planning the day, I think back to gorgeous baby boomers and jiving girls of the 1950s, back to when skincare really wasn’t as easy and accessible as it is now. Cold cream to cleanse, gloopy night creams, plus thick blushes and heavy pan-stick foundations really didn’t make for skincare heaven! And yet botanicals have always been part of our lives, and as the human race has evolved, so have the botanicals around us. We’ve used them on our skin to soothe and heal, we’ve consumed them… so it really does make sense to use them in our products, as we do at Liz Earle.

  • They’re safe and time-tested (just read about the traditional uses of eyebright, found in our Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion; or cooling aloe vera, used across the range from Instant Boost Skin Tonic to our Botanical Aftersun Gel; or kigellia, featured in our Superskin range).
  • Botanicals are skin-compatible, working in synergy with the skin’s natural oils (sebum).
  • They’re the key to healthy, radiant skin, day in, day out. Whatever the weather or season, whatever life throws at you, they are your constant – reliable, always delivering, always gently maintaining the skin’s balance and supporting its most basic function.

Whatever your age, it’s never too late to start experiencing the wonder of amazing ‘Liz Earle skin’ – and never too late to share the secret with your loved ones. What about a surprise gift for your daughter on Mothering Sunday? What’s the greatest gift a mother can give her daughter – probably a kind ear, endless love or pearls of carefully-worded wisdom… but actually the gift of great skin is something every Liz Earle mummy should be sharing. My little ones started early – Orange Flower Botanical Body Wash baths, Cleanse & Polish for face paint removing, Eyebright for itchy eyes, Superskin or Superbalm on sore patches of skin… but really, I can’t wait to share my beauty secrets with them when they hit their teens. I always wax lyrical about this, but it does tickle me that my mother and I both use the very same products – skincare, make-up, haircare – all Liz Earle. And yet we are in different decades: 30s & 60s. And now, we have three generations: Grannie (mid 60s), Mummy (38), the girls (aged just two and six). Different ages, stages and skin types – but we’re all addicted to the Liz Earle range.

Enjoy Mothering Sunday – and don’t forget to drop a helpful hint (or two!) about how much you’d love to try our new Indulgent Bath & Body collection! Do share your favourite stories about the day here, for us and others to read and enjoy.

Finally, we introduce our Indulgent Bath & Body collection to you… the hardest part of being on the product development customer tester panel was having to keep quiet before launch! I found it so difficult, especially when so many of you have been asking for something luxurious and indulgent, perfect for keeping all to yourself or for gifting. After our press launch last autumn, here we finally are – and we’re thrilled to hear how much you’re all enjoying our latest addition! This truly is sumptuous decadence for those special (and everyday) occasions, when all you need is a quick pick-me-up, to restore and revive, but in a divinely luxurious way.

What’s excited me more than anything, is being with you in person to hear and see your responses to our pampering new range. It’s so rewarding to all of us here to see that it meets your wish lists’ demands! I believe that this new collection speaks to so many of us – we are, as a generation, time-poor, stressed out, eking out those precious few moments of time in each and every day, just for the simple pleasures of life (such as a luxuriant five minutes in the shower!) These three sumptuous aromas can transport you to a desert island, a Mediterranean sunrise or an exotic garden, and revive the spirits on the coldest depths of a chilly morning. They also uplift, energise and rebalance in the evenings, easing the end of a hard day, offering the promise of summer ahead.

Many customers are already talking about this range as a tonic in a bottle – a moment of pure pleasure to immerse yourself in. And of course, we’ve not even touched on the skin benefits of our Creamy Shower Nectar and Silky Body Lotion – all the heritage ingredients you know and love (shea butter, avocado, natural source vitamin E, naturally derived foaming agents), to comfort, nourish and nurture skin from top to toe. I too, like so many of you, breathe a silent sigh of relief when I step into an invigorating Bergamot & Ginger shower, or choose to luxuriate at bedtime with comforting Vanilla & Saffron. I also love the feminine floral aroma of Tiare & Jasmine – really a very special scent. So glad you’re enjoying the range!

I’ve was lucky enough to see this first-hand in late January with QVC customers at their annual Beauty Bash, where 3,000 women descend on a hall of fabulous beauty brands for three days of beauty heaven. Sarah Carr, our In-house Beauty Expert, and I helped our team to man the Indulgent Bath & Body stand, and were fascinated to see that customers loved all three fragrances, and that the choice of favourite was evenly split. At my first of a series of evening talks with customers in store, last Friday I met 50 Liz Earle devotees at our Duke of York Square store, and had great fun asking the audience which their favourite was. It’s wonderful to see you smoothing, sniffing, romanticising and luxuriating in our indulgent range.

Here are some of the wonderful things that you’ve shared with us so far – that it lifts you on a difficult day, that you will choose this range for your wedding day, that you are already buying for your mother on Mothering Sunday, that it’s on your birthday wish list, that your teenage daughter would love it too, that it’s just the tonic to rebalance and revive after a long day. So very pleased to hear. Do share your stories with us – which is your favourite, when do you use it (which days/moods) and who will you share this with? Can’t wait to see the love for this aromatic collection grow as the seasons change… do jot down your thoughts below, or share with us on Facebook…

Look forward to seeing you for our QVC 18th year anniversary shows on 18th-19th March!

The glitz and glamour of awards season is always an exciting time – cue beautiful gowns, glossy hair and flawless make up being pictured on many a front page.

This season, natural-looking make up ruled the red carpet, with a nod to old school glamour – think Audrey Hepburn’s trademark flawless skin twinned with healthy-looking rosebud lips. I adore this look because once you’ve mastered the techniques, you can wear it for every occasion, confident in the knowledge that you’ll still look like you… but better! The secret is to accentuate one key feature while creating the illusion of immaculate skin – this will bring out your natural beauty, rather than looking overly made up.

Try it for yourself with the latest look I’ve been using on red carpet celebrities…

  1. For the perfect canvas, exfoliate your skin with Gentle Face Exfoliator 70ml to lift off dulling dead skin cells and create a more even base – your foundation will thank you afterwards.
  2. Treat your face to a five-minute massage with one or two pumps of Superskin Concentrate 28ml. Work in an upwards motion to stimulate circulation for skin that glows from within.
  3. Apply Sheer Skin Tint SPF15 40ml with from the centre (where skin generally needs more coverage) working outwards for the most beautiful, radiant-looking skin finish.
  4. Light Reflecting Concealer is my multi-tasking make up hero – use it on under-eye shadows to brighten, along cheekbones to highlight, and below brows to ‘lift’ the eye area.
  5. Sweep Signature Eye Colour in Bronze over eyelids and gently diffuse upwards and outwards with our Blend & Contour Brush – the golden bronze hue will beautifully enhance your eyes. Using a zig-zag motion, apply two coats of Lash Definition Smudgeproof Mascara 8ml to lashes.
  6. Dab Healthy Glow Cream Blush in Rose to the apples of your cheeks with your fingertips – this is a wonderfully flattering shade that works with almost every skin tone.
  7. For a beautiful healthy-looking berry tone, apply Signature Lip Colour in Heather with our Precision Brush, making sure to perfectly define your Cupid’s bow. If you are very pale or want a more subtle look, then use your fingertip and pat the colour onto lips to create a more stain-like effect. Top with Sheer Lip Gloss in Petal 5ml in the centre of your lips for the illusion of a plumper-looking pout.
  8. Keep brows soft using your chosen shade of Brow Pencil to fill in any sparse areas, then comb through with our Brow & Eyeliner Brush. Complete the look with a light dusting of Healthy Glow Bronzer over the cheeks, forehead, nose, chin and décolletage to add warmth.

Tip: Tie the look together with elegant, polished fingernails. You can’t go wrong with Strengthening Nail Colour 12ml in Grace.

With modern life existing at such a pace, it’s no surprise that few of us escape some level of stress.

So, what can we do to keep our stress levels balanced? Here are my top tips for combating stress:

1. Meditate
Just a few minutes a day can help ease anxiety and stress. Research suggests that daily meditation may alter the brain’s neural pathways, making you more resilient to stress too.

Keep it really simple. Sit up straight with both feet on the floor, or cross legged on a pillow on the floor. Relax your body, take a few deep breaths and close your eyes. Then repeat in your mind a positive mantra such as “I feel at peace” or “I love myself.” I discovered the benefits of positive words when I had hypnotherapy for anxiety at the age of 19, I still use them today: “Cool, calm, collected, confident and courageous”.

2. Breathe
Stress can result in shallow diaphragm breathing which reduces oxygen intake, so learn belly breathing and give yourself a 5-minute break. Sit up straight or lie down, eyes closed, with a hand on your belly. Slowly inhale through your nose, feeling the breath start in your abdomen and work its way to the top of your head. Reverse the process as you exhale through your mouth.

3. Write it down
I used to lie awake at night with a head full of thoughts and to-do’s. I now keep a notebook by my bedside so I can empty my thoughts onto paper before switching the light off – I quickly drop off to sleep knowing I won’t forget anything.

4. Cut out stimulants
I love a good soya cappuccino, a glass of wine, dark chocolate – but enjoying these too late in the day can affect your sleep. So let’s enjoy stimulants in moderation, as lack of sleep is only going to creep those stress levels high the following day.

5. Laugh
You’d be amazed how helpful laughing can be, we release happy hormones when we laugh and it can also be contagious in lifting someone else’s mood.

6. Massage
A good massage not only feels great as it eases muscle tension, it also sends ‘relax’ messages to the brain. The amazing Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami discovered a group of children suffering skin conditions experienced better mood and activity levels after massage, plus reduced redness and itching.

7: Take some me-time
Get outside for a walk, run a warm bath, sit in the park, do a yoga class, have a tea break; anything which involves you and you alone – no phone, computer, children, partner or work colleague.

8: Find time to see friends
Friends can help us see things in a different light, just voicing your stresses can be therapy in itself. From putting a funny spin on things to giving great insight from personal experience, friends help put your worries to one side.

9. Do one healthy thing each day
Take the stairs. Swap a biscuit for fruit. Replace your morning coffee with green tea. You might just find that each healthy choice keeps you motivated to make more.

London Fashion Week is such an exciting time, with its larger-than-life theatrical creations, flamboyant hair and show-stopping make up. Along with the latest style and fabric trends, I particularly loved the current bronze smoky eyes look – a shade which really makes all eye colours pop. Flattering and feminine, it’s a very wearable way to enhance your natural beauty, especially when balanced with glowing, highlighted skin and a peachy, soft nude lip. Here’s how to get the look…

Bronze goddess: your ultimate day-to-night look

1. Sheer Skin Tint SPF15 is the ideal base for this look as it creates an even, natural-looking finish yet leaves a pure, radiant sheen on the skin. Using your Foundation Brush, work it from the centre outwards, blending under eyes, around your nose and down lightly onto your neck. Don’t forget to apply a little onto your eyelids to create a base for your shadow.

2. Work Eye Pencil in Golden Bronze along your lash line, building up to your eyelid crease for a beautiful bronze base. Apply Signature Eye Colour in Bronze over the top, blending upwards and outwards, then dampen your brush and apply more shadow to your lower lash line and soften with a cotton bud.

3. For extra definition, dot Eye Pencil in Black in between your top lashes and blend. Accentuate lashes with a generous coating of Lash Intensifying Mascara Base, followed by two coats of Lash Definition Smudgeproof Mascara in Black.

4. To recreate a ‘lit-from-within’ glow, apply Light Reflecting Concealer to the inner corner of eyes, along the top of cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose and above your Cupid’s bow and blend with your fingertip (a backstage trick to make your eyes come alive and give structure to the face).

5. Keep cheeks soft with Healthy Glow Powder Blush in Nude and apply just to the apples. Line and fill lips with Lip Pencil in Carnation, then use your Precision Brush to apply Signature Lip Colour in Blossom. Finish your look by brushing through brows then set your complexion with a dusting of Natural Finish Loose Powder down your T-zone.

Hello there! As In-house Beauty Expert here at Liz Earle, I’m delighted to be sharing my very first blog with you. I’ll be keeping you updated each month with news about what I’ve been up to (my job means I get to do a lot of travelling, and attend some exciting events), as well as my favourite beauty and lifestyle hints and tips!

Unlike most, I actually love that ‘January’ feeling – the start of a new year always gives me a real buzz. While the rest of the population spend the month hiding away, I like to plan trips, enjoy a bit of me-time and go on long walks, looking out for the snowdrops and crocuses that bring with them the promise of spring!

Here’s what I’ve been up to this month…

What I’m reading: Long Walk to Freedom by Nelson Mandela.  A true inspiration – and I always need to read the book before seeing the film.

What I’m wearing: My new jacket from Whistles (a very special Christmas present). I’m also really enjoying looking at the new Spring/Summer 2014 collections – especially a pastel mohair coat from Zara!

What I’m planning: Ibiza! Not my usual holiday destination but I’ve been meaning to go for years, so I’m planning a girls’ trip with Nina, one of my best friends.  I can’t wait to see the hippie markets (I’m a hippie at heart!) and enjoy cocktails while watching the sunset.

This month’s lifestyle tip: I saw an article online recently about a lady who drinks three litres of water a day – not only did this inspire me to do the same, but I am sharing her story with everyone!  The results were amazing, her skin looked incredible and fully supported the article’s title Ten Years Younger. It really made me see how easy it is to do too. So if you see me out and about I will be carrying a large bottle of water!

This month’s skincare tips: Massage, massage and more massage!  2-3 minutes every time you cleanse (twice a day of course) will help boost circulation and lymphatic drainage, leaving you not only looking great (as you massage away all that December overindulgence) but feeling good too.
Focus on upward and outward circular movements all over the face and neck.

My second tip – exfoliation. Known to brighten and improve the texture of the skin, start the year as you mean to go on and use our Gentle Face Exfoliator 70ml 2-3 times per week (please note, Gentle Face Exfoliator is not recommended for sensitive skin).  I use mine first thing in the morning before I hop into the shower and wash my hair – the perfect start to the day, and your make up glides onto the skin after using it too.

This month’s make up tip: Healthy Glow Cream Blush is my year-round beauty cheat to a radiant complexion!  At the moment I’m wearing shades Nude and Nectar.  Apply to the apple of the cheek and blend in a teardrop shape towards the ear.

As January comes to an end I like to review my resolutions and start planning my birthday celebrations for February… stay tuned for my next (birthday!) blog. Oh, and if you see me in store, please do come and say hi and share your hints and tips!

Best wishes,

Sarah x
