Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great results I don't usually buy this kind of product, but I had some Brightening Drops in a Christmas gift set and I was amazed at the difference they made. My skin, which at 58, is usually quite dull, definitely looked more radiant and healthy. I am now on my third bottle and am very happy with it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing and not for me! I’ve waited a while to leave a review for this so that I could use it for a period of time, as I really wasn’t impressed initially. So, about a month later and I’m still not impressed. Being honest, I see (and feel) absolutely no difference in my skin which is really disappointing. Trying to find a positive, I’d say that It’s quite nice to apply, but then I think that any oil-based substance would feel the same really, and it’s disappointing (for me) that there is absolutely no smell at all so there isn’t even a pleasant aromatic sensation that can be enjoyed. All in all, not for me: I won’t be purchasing again and would be reluctant to recommend, sorry I can’t be more positive but honestly, I feel that putting “any old oil” on my face would probably give me a similar experience and no better outcome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skin is so much brighter! I have a 5 week old baby so feeling very tired and no time to put make up on! My mam bought me these drops at Christmas and I absolutely love them! I have noticed a massive difference already! My skin tone is a lot more even and definitely brighter! I feel I only need a little concealer before going out now! Will definitely be purchasing another bottle when these run out! X

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifted my complexion As I've gotten older and also with the stresses of the winter, Covid and other factors that impact my skin, I have noticed my skin has become duller and I've had to wear more foundation and blush to try make my skin appear more vibrant. The reviews for these drops were really positive so I added it to my order as a treat and really glad I did. I feel as though it compliments my existing skin care routine as in its not taxing and it naturally fits into my cleanse, tone and moisturise regime, but it gives me the lift I needed and I've noticed a week in that my skin is more even toned and is definitely brighter, to the point I feel more confident going make up free a bit more than I would. Would happily continue using this and hopefully as time goes on the benefits continue. Also love Liz Earles ethics and that it is natural and cruelty free which is important to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these drops! I initially tried these drops to help brighten my skin, as I have been having problems with my face for years now. I was a bit skeptical about these drops buy I gave it a try, I am so happy I did I love it. My face instantly got brighter and has looked healthy ever since, it has been a lovely investment!

Do you use these drops before or after moisturising?

Asked by: Joeybear806
Hi there, thank you for your question. There are multiple ways in which you can use our Botanical Drops. You can choose to use them alone, by applying 1-2 drops to your hands, and smoothing over the skin (avoiding the eye area), then following with your chosen moisturiser. Alternatively, you can mix the drops in with your chosen moisturiser, and massage into the skin (avoiding eye area). Finally, you can target the drops on any specific problematic areas, before applying your chosen moisturiser. We hope this helps, but should you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact our friendly customer centre team on 01983 813 913, or by emailing - The Liz Earle Customer Centre Team.
