Rated 4 out of 5 by from What a difference! I bought this on a bit of a whim but it's beautiful product and has already made a difference to the appearance of my skin in just 2 weeks. It is more even, blemish free and looks fresh

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favourite product I first tried the balancing drops a couple of years ago, wasn't able to get them for a while and was relieved to find them back in stock this year. They work brilliantly to mattify and control the appearance of oil and shine in my T-zone, and if I add a drop to my misturiser, my face and neck look brighter and feel silky smooth. The effect lasts all day until I cleanse, even on the hottest of days. A little miracle-worker!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product I can feel my skin absorbing the drops and it really does feel nourished. Only a few drops are needed and so the bottle lasts well. My only criticism is that I cannot use the dropper for the last drops and so have to resort to leaving the bottle upside down. It works, just not ideal, but I do not want to waste any.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous! I had very bad breakouts on my cheeks and jawline and was quite fed up. However, since using these Balancing Drops , I have been amazed at how quickly my skin has cleared up. I found that the drops were easily absorbed and a pleasure to use. I now keep a spare bottle as would not want to be without them. Thank you Liz Earle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic oil! This is my second bottle of Botanical oil and I'm so pleased with how it has improved the appearance of my skin. Due to the menopause I have noticed my skin has changed recently and that I am suffering breakouts however, since using the oil, along with the cleanse routine, my skin is much clearer and any blemishes that do appear disappear much quicker and any redness/mark fades quicker too. I add it to my moisturiser or use directly on troubled areas. So happy with the way my skin looks, would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them I’ve been wanting to try the drops since they were first introduced and I’m so glad I did - now I wonder why I waited so long! I’ve found they’ve made a significant difference to how oily my skin gets during a day, especially being a key worker and still having to wear a face mask in work - I was finding my face would get oilier than usual. These drops have helped to reduce it significantly. I’ve found it’s helped with my overall skin health, too, where it’s helped to keep pesky spots at bay. I use one drop a day prior to moisturising, after cleansing and toning on my problem areas so primarily my T-Zone. After 10 days full use I’ve not seen much disappear from the bottle so despite the higher price tag, I project this will last me a while. I consider it great value anyway - it does what it says it will do, so I’m very pleased and would definitely purchase again when I start to get low.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant botanical drops I bought these drops after finding these were the best value wise. I had quite textured skin, especially on my forehead and cheeks, but after using these drops, along with the light moisturiser, I was so so happy with the results. Reduced pores and for the first time ever my skin appeared smooth and even. Would definitely recommend, and will purchase again in the future.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for combination skin and scarring! I recently returned to using Liz Earle after struggling with oily skin, blemishes and scarring- it was the best decision I could've made! These drops are great, I didn't expect them to remove all blemishes and redness that I had but after using them for over 3 weeks now I can 100% say they've made a VAST improvement. Overall my skin looks much clearer and healthier! I use these alongside the cleanse and polish and skin repair gel cream and they're all brilliant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant for spots I’ve suddenly had a breakout of spots (due to wearing a mask) so I thought I’d try this product for targeting spots and it’s brilliant. I put it directly on a big angry spot before going to bed the other night and woke up and it was hardly there! Honestly I couldn’t believe it. The pot is tiny so when I opened it I was like ‘brilliant this is going to last a week’ but a little does go a long way, you just put a drop in your normal moisturiser or a drop directly on the skin. So I think it was worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I thought I didn't need this product. A user of Liz Earle for 20 years. I didn't think I needed this product to add to my items I use. I was wrong, it is amazing. I already have the Liz Earle glow, but this product takes my skin to another level. The result looks like you have used a primer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Botanical stench Unfortunately I was very disappointed with this product. I love the moisturisers, used them for a while, thought I treat myself to these drops as I struggling with a dry but oily forehead. The smell of this product is awful. No perfume, just a dull, musky smell. I have to mix it with the moisturiser so I can get the use of it but I won't be buying again. It might have helped a little with the dry skin on my forehead.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Calming botanical drops I have a very sensitive skin and I found that the Calming botanical drops really help my face. I do seem to use them up very quickly though so may have to wait until they are on offer again to restock.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from On the fence Sadly, I am struggling with the smell of this product, it is deeply unpleasant and smells like sick. I know it is the natural plant smell, but it is too off putting for me. I first tried the Brightening Drops, which I absolutely loved. But as I have some sun damaged spots, I thought I would give this one a try. I have added pure Lavender Oil, to improve the smell. This has made a big difference, but think I will have to return to the brightening drops. I just use one drop and apply direct on my face each morning, before moisturising. It would be great to purchase these without the dropper (post first purchase), to save on unnecessary plastic etc. Or a return of packaging option (for most of the LE products).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not waste your money! I bought the Botanical Balancing drops last month and cannot be more disappointed. The drops smell rancid. So much so that I contacted Liz Earle website direct and they advised the drops were unscented. This is not the case. They smell disgusting. I tried using the drops with a scented moisturiser but the ‘off’ smell kept coming through. I’m confused as one of the reviews states they smell ‘amazing’! This can’t be for the same product. The drops themselves did nothing for my skin. I have thrown them away. What an expensive mistake to make.

Would I use this before or after applying your super skin face serum 

Asked by: Tyronee
Hi. I use the Balancing Drops  before applying my Superskin Face Serum  or before my Skin Repair Hydrating Serum. The drops are superb at helping to eliminate any pesky spots and balancing my skin. Hope this helps.
