Botanical Shine™ Shampoo Results

Shea Butter

(Butyrospermum parkii)

Renowned for its excellent emollient properties and ability to help improve the barrier function of the skin, we source our shea butter from West Africa, where the pulp of the fruit is removed to reveal the kernel, which is boiled and dried in the sun before being shelled for pressing.

Aloe Vera

(Aloe barbadensis)

Featuring formidable hydrating, soothing and cooling properties, our aloe vera is harvested in the morning to maximise the amount of juice the sword-shaped fronds yield, before being freeze-dried to create a powder.

Apple Fruit Extract

(Pyrus malus x domestica)

Used for its ability to smooth and promote shine, we source our apples an award-winning organic farm in the heart of Herefordshire, England, where herbs have been grown and processed for 30 years. The farm has twice been the winner of the Silver Lapwing, the UK’s leading environmental and farming award.

Aqua (water), Lauryl glucoside, Cocamidopropyl betaine, Glycerin, Sodium chloride, Parfum (fragrance), Pyrus malus (apple) fruit extract, Citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) fruit extract, Aloe barbadensis (aloe vera) leaf juice, Shea butter ethyl esters, Sodium benzoate, Inulin, Panthenol, Limonene, Citric acid, Coco-glucoside, Glyceryl oleate, Linalool, Sodium phytate, Phenoxyethanol, Alcohol, Potassium sorbate, Hydrogenated palm glycerides citrate, Tocopherol (vitamin E), Sodium hydroxide.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New formula is no good I used the original liz for years. The new firmula tangles hair. It bears no resemblence to the original. You brought back eye bright and toner after changing them. There is no reason why you cannot do this again. PLEASE LISTEN TO YOUR LOYAL CUSTOMERS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gentle I have used this shampoo at least twice a month over the past 2 years. It leaves my hair squeaky clean, soft and shiny. My scalp does not itch from regular use of this Liz Earle shampoo. That cannot be said for other types of shampoo I have used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brightens hair like no other This is the only shampoo that transforms my dull grey hair. Simply put, it lightens, brightens and makes it shine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not my favourite I have been using this since the previous shampoo was discontinued so have given it a quite a long time to test it out, I am not that impressed. I have to use more of the product than I did with the old one to clean my hair and it feels quite dry after washing so I have to use more of the conditioner to soften it and make it feel less straw like. I dont have dry hair but it feels like i do every time I wash it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dreadful new formula I started using the new formula after years of using the original one which was perfect for my hair leaving it shiny and smelling beautiful. This new formula is dreadful. Firstly my eyes were stinging terribly and then my hair itched and was so dry. I had to wash my hair twice to even feel slightly clean and use lots of conditioners after. Having looked at all the ingredients in this formula especially the sodium hydroxide I can understand why it's so bad. Compared to the ingredients in the old formula which were far more natural on the whole. It also faded the colour in my hair. Won't be using it again. Please return to the old formula

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What have you done to this Shampoo?! It’s now awfu I have used your shampoo on and off fur the last few years and always loved it. My mum is also a fan and regularly uses it too. But what have you done to it, it is now awful to use and we are thoroughly disappointed! She bought me some for Christmas and treated herself at the same time. I thought it was just me, until we compared experiences. At first I thought I had a dodgy tune as it is sooo difficult to squeeze out. Plus the texture is horrible and won’t even larger properly. The conditioner is fine but I am very disappointed in whatever has changed. Will no longer be purchasing or recommending.

Why did you only ask a few (only 2O) of your loyal customers to try the reformulated shampoo? The constant negative reviews are a reflection of your poor trial of the shampoo. 

Asked by: Orla26
Unfortunately you asked the wrong 84% of customers going by the negative reviews. I didn’t know formula had changed and hair was dry/ straw texture. Will not be using this again. Will say I still like the conditioner.

You have stated the reason for changing the formula of your bestselling shampoo is because the ingredients are difficult to source? I suspect the true reason for the drastic change in formula is cheaper, poor quality ingredients and profit for the company

Asked by: Del666
They probably need all the profit they can get , due to all the awful changes that have been made to most of the products. All the lovely spray oils , and bath oils ! Gone… All of the Energising body products! Gone…The Shampoo in its original formula , all gone !! Liz Earle never needed to have sales , when Liz still owned the company, but they do now !!

On your responses to the reviews about the change in formula,  botanicals are not available & your product team have worked hard on the new formula, how can this be when there is such a dramatic change, I left a bad review and will return the product. 

Asked by: Mazzini
84% said they would change to the new formula ?? Forget your panel results and read the reviews on here. The shampoo is awful but will say the conditioner is still nice.

Hi I have used Liz Earle shampoo for many years,however the new Botanical shine shampoo is awful and this is such a shame. I feel you really need to listen to all the negative reviews and re look at this shampoo as you will definitely loose customers. 

Asked by: Used Liz Earle for years
I agree too, I have tried to persevere but I won’t be buying anymore, not just because it strips my hair but because it’s too thick and with arthritis in my hands I struggle to squeeze it out of the tube. Very sad to have to find an alternative after so many years 😢
