Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product The drops are very easy to use and have a light, smooth texture which feels great on my skin. The drops are good on their own but combining them with skin repair light cream is pure joy. Every morning I look forward to the wonderful light, floral perfume and smooth application to my skin by mixing a single drop of Balancing Drops with skin repair light. Gets my day off to a good start!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power in a drop Easy to use, just one drop in moisturiser is enough. I occasionally use it neat on problem areas. I was sceptical but knowing how good the other facial oils are I gave it a try & haven't bern disappointed. I call it power in a drop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results! Been using the product for a week and I can already see the benefits with reduced redness. It has also stopped my skin looking shiny and oily towards the end of the working day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing These drops are absolutely amazing. I had red marks and scars on my cheeks from previous blemishes and breakouts, which despite my skin clearing up, these marks weren't going. These drops made all the marks vanish in a week. I use 1 drop in the Liz earle gel moisturiser morning and night. I cant recommend them highly enough. Miracle drops.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from smell really bad sorry to say but the smell of these is extremely off-putting. Unless I have been unlucky and received a bad batch, the smell resembles vomit. I have tried to ignore it to see if the drops help my skin but to be fair make no difference either. Calming drops seem to have favorable comments regarding smell so maybe I need to try them instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these drops for making my skin not only soft but glowing These Botantical balancing drops are first class I needed an extra moisture for my gel skin repair and these drops fixed it. I thought I would need to go up to rich cream, but I did not need too. These drops also helped with an sore patch on my scalp and it has amazing healing powers. Love the way these drops make your skin glow and feels so soft. Thank you Liz Earle team for making my skin better than it can ever be. Love all your products 100% happy customer. I recommend all of Liz Earle products as I use them all. Eye Bright, cleanse and polish with the new hook and love the cleanse and polish in the pump.The toner in the spray bottle, hand cream and the new soap is outstanding creamy and moisturising. Love the shower gels, the new eye brightner. Lip balm is great too. Skin repair gel, and now adding the new drops to my routine. I have used the cleanse and polish for 25 years since it was in the pink and white pump. I would not use anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer! I was a late-comer to Botanical Drops, but having tried them, I'm now hooked! The lightweight serum not only makes my skin look firm and fresh, with hugely reduced pores, but it seems to also prevent my usual oil-slick from forming, during the day. And it does all of this without causing any unpleasant dry, or sticky feeling. My skincare has been revolutionised by this product.
