Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than one benefit I love this product as it not only makes my skin look and feel great it also makes my moisturiser go so much further making both the serum and cream better value for money. My skin definitely looks more radiant and youthful from using it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Moisturising I am currently using my second bottle. Honestly I am unsure if it's actually brightening my skin but it definitely makes my skin feel very moisturized when use it with my moisturize at the same time. The downsize to this product is that it's quite small, therefore finishes quite quickly. I feel really bad throwing the bottle away. Perhaps Liz Earle would consider selling re-fill bottle where we re-use the pipette of the original bottle? Obviously, this re-fill bottle should be sold at a lower price. This way, we can stay moisturized and save the environment at the same time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful This is my fourth bottle. I absolutely love it. I add it to my moisturiser on days when my skin feels particularly dry or tight and it glides on, brightens my skin and feels lovely .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes such a difference. I have been using Liz Earle products for just over a year and love the difference they have made to my skin. The Brightening Botanical Drops give my skin a real lift and my completion looks brighter and even a bit younger! Love the smell and the feel I my skin too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really works! I love this product. It really does brighten my skin, which can be dull and lacklustre. My skin is combination / oily and acne prone so the water-based gel-like consistency really works for me. My only disappointment was I didn't realise til after I'd bought it that it's advised not to use it in the sun, as it can exacerbate skin's reaction to the sun. So I have to be careful when I use it as I'm outdoors a lot for work. Also if I were using it daily it wouldn't last very long compared to other Liz Earle products of a similar price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely glow I have only been using these drops for a short time but have noticed a lovely glow to my skin. I think one bottle will last quite a long time but I don't want to run out and find they are out of stock, so bottle number two is there ready to use in the future. Would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brightening Drops These Brightening Drops are brilliant, go really well with the moisturiser. Makes my skin feel lovely, soft and brighter. They last along time. In fact I run out of the moisturiser before the drops. Great value for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply amazing! Received the drops free with my 3 step daily routine. Already purchased another bottle. My skin feels fabulous and radiant. My new favourite.
Date published: 2021-04-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Glowing results First timer to these gel drops. Absolutely loved the results in such a short time of using the drops. You only need about 1 drop, I mixed the gel drop with a little superskin face cream and you can notice a natural glow and radiance on the skin straight away! It diminishes any tired looking areas on the face. A little goes a long way. This is one I will definitely keep on using. It doesn’t feel oily or greasy on the skin at all. Very lightweight and smells lovely. The only qualm I have is the pipette, the drop is not measured correctly as some air gets squeezed out with the gel when using the pipette. Other than that it’s a keeper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luxurious I mix this with my serum and even after just a week my husband noticed the difference in my skin. Used with the hot cloth cleanser, scrub and Superskin moisturiser, my skin definitely glows.
Date published: 2021-04-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product Absolutely love this...I put one drop on my face at night and wake up with bright, even skin. Will use this forever!!
Date published: 2021-03-21
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing purchase I initially tried applying this directly to my skin but it made my skin feel dry. It was definitely better when added to moisturiser. I can’t see any changes or improvements after two weeks of use.
Date published: 2021-03-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these drops These drops are easily absorbed and I use them 2 or 3 times a week, love the way my skin looks after use.
Date published: 2021-02-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels lovely on the skin Unable to tell any difference yet after ten days but feels lovely on the skin applied with superskin moisturiser.
Date published: 2021-02-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use, skin friendly I have used Liz Earle skincare products since a friend recommended me 18 months ago and found them easy to incorporate into my routine. During lockdown my skin has looked a little dull so I thought I would try the skin brightening drops. They are very easy to use; I add one drop to my light skin repair moisturiser and it is easily absorbed into my skin with no trace of stickyness or oiliness. I have only been using them for just over a week so will wait for results.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did not add anything extra on top of daily routine! I found the texture of these drops very pleasant. After applying I had a nice glow to my face but I always get that following application of the Liz Earle light moisturiser. I applied drops on top of the normal moisturiser after it was absorbed rather than mixing it in for it to be more concentrated and could see no difference. Had I not already been using your products which give me a healthy glow my experience may have been different, for this reason I cannot fairly rate quality or value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Summer Glow These drops create such a lovely glow to the skin. I mix these into my Liz Earle Skin Repair Light Cream, and this creates a dream team for the skin! My skin looks a lot brighter, and more hydrated, with a lovely glow when I use these. They are perfect for under makeup to create a really nice glowy base! Love these for summer!
Date published: 2020-07-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice added luxury to skin care routine [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Nice light formula. One drop mixed with moisturiser is enough, two drops direct is great if you want that extra boost. I tried to find information about whether this will react with retinols, but i couldn't find much saying that it wasn't recommended, so I had to try it myself. I wouldn't suggest using at the same time as a retinol. I now use this in the morning with the moisturiser and my retinol still at night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely product Lovely product my skin is looking so much brighter and smoother just after 1 week, a little drop goes a long way, Quick delivery. Definitely recommend.

Does this product include an SPF protection?

Asked by: KatieStubbs
Hi, thanks for getting in touch. Our Brightening Botancial Drops do not contain any SPF protection however, it may help you to know, that our Sheer Skin Tint and Environmental Skin Defence Cream, both have SPF protection. I hope this helps however, should you have any further questions regarding this, please contact our Customer Centre by emailing - The Liz Earle Beauty Co. Team
