Elizabeths Daughter: The Intensive Moisturiser & The Skin Spritz

The Intensive Moisturiser £22* | The Skin Spritz £15*

I've had this post drafted up for so long now but somehow it managed to get lost. Tsskk

Elizabeth created Elizabeths Daughter after years of trying to find products that suited her own skin. She also wanted to create simple and effective skin care for young girls, including her daughter. All products are on average 95% natural and the botanical extracts are sourced responsibly. None of the ingredients or products are tested on animals and all products are free from parabens, sulphates and petrochemicals.

The Skin Spritz made it into my favourites last month (link) and its safe to say its still a firm favourite. A lot of hype has been surrounding the Caudalie Beauty Elixir (I love it and have repurchased three times now) but I still stand by what I said in my review, it has a tingly effect on the skin but thats as far as it goes and I wouldnt recommend it to anyone with dry skin as it adds zero moisture. If anything, I find it to be drying at times. The Skin Spritz is the complete opposite. If you've tried Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic then you'll know how moisturising it is, you almost feel as if you dont need to apply moisturiser after and thats exactly how The Skin Spritz feels. If my cheeks flare up or get really dry this instantly soothes the skin and helps with any redness. It contains fresh strawberry cells, aloe vera leaf juice, rose water and naturally occuring glycoproteins from mountain balm. It smells so, so good. If you have oily skin then The Skin Spritz might be too moisturising for you but anyone with dry or irritated skin should really give this a try.

The Intensive Moisturiser is a whopping 100ml and is designed to calm sensitive/dry skin. Ingredients include Sacha Inchi oil, Tahitian Monoi, Kakadu Plum Extract which has a very high Vitamin C content equivalent to 10 oranges, Apricot Kernel Oil, Mango Butter and Argan Oil. Each help to nourish, moisturise, relieve, soothe and help inflammation. When the skin on my cheeks flares up I get really itchy and hives pop up all over my face. I dont know if its because of medication, weather, temperature change, water or just a combination of everything but when this happens I reach for The Intensive Moisturiser. The hives dont disappear straight away but it seems to stop more from popping up and kills the itch, I've even used it on my body.

The range is aimed at young girls but I dont see any reason why boys/men couldnt use it. I feel both products would be too rich for oily skin but could be HG products for those with dry/sensitive skin. I used Caudalie Beauty Elixir and Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic for comparison as they're probably two of the most popular toners at the minute and I know a lot of people have tried them.

Have any of you tried these products before? Whats your thoughts?
