Cleanse & Polish The Results

Blueberry Seed Oil

BLUEBERRY SEED OIL
(Vaccinium myrtillus)

High in potent antioxidants, we use blueberry seed oil in our Environmental Defence Cream SPF 25, as it helps the cream work as a natural shield against blue light. Thanks to its high fatty acid composition, it also supports skin’s natural moisture barrier, resulting in hydrated and nourished skin. Sustainably sourced and produced; we extract this ingredient from 100% upcycled blueberries – a waste product of the juice production industry.

Lingonberry Seed Oil

LINGONBERRY SEED OIL
(Vaccinium vitis-idaea)

Known to be a powerful antioxidant with a reputation as a health-promoting superfruit, we use lingonberry seed oil in our Environmental Defence Cream SPF 25, as it helps the cream work as a natural shield against blue light. This botanical is also known for its conditioning properties and for helping boost skin’s natural moisture barrier. We source these wild self-sustainable berries from Finland and Sweden.

Shea Butter

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I be used this a few times since I bought it. It goes on nicely over my usual Liz Earle moisturiser. It doesn’t give a lot of coverage but it does give a nice glow and seems to even out my skin fairly well. Ive tried building coverage but then it pills. Saying that, I’m very happy with the product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An Essential Product I have used this product for several weeks now and so pleased it is a good defence cream which blends into my skin colour. After cleansing, toning and moisturising I apply Skin Defence Cream. A perfect product for the Summer and all through the year.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Heavy texture I'm new to the liz earle range and have loved every product so far and thought I'd try the tinted moisturiser as I was looking for sun/pollution protection. The colour is nice even on pale skin like mine but the texture is a bit too heavy/clumpy for my liking. I'll stick to just regular moisturiser in the future as its just not my cup of tea.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best facial spf I bought this spf after falling in love with the lavender cleanser and repairing night cream. I suffer with acne rosacea and spfs usually aggravate my skin, but this is great. It’s non greasy and the tint really flatters my skin tone. I will definitely purchase again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good spf Good spf that isn’t greasy and has an added bonus that it is tinted. Would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Andrea Got this product 2 weeks ago and so far I’m very impressed. It is easy to apply and is quickly absorbed. Colour helps to even out the skin tone. Not sure about the sun protection as we haven’t had any for a while.

Hi, is this suitable for young skin, 12 years? I'm looking for an SPF product for my daughter, many thanks.

Asked by: Lulu9
Hi, thanks for getting in touch. Whilst all our formulations are made as mild and gentle as possible, when choosing an SPF for someone of this age group, we would recommend opting for one which has been specifically formulated for those with younger skin. We hope this helps - The Customer Care Centre

Why does this product( the environmental defence cream) need moisturiser on first ? I just want to put moisturiser on that has SPF in it - every other company seems to manage this. 

Asked by: Micah
Hi, thanks for getting in touch. As our moisturisers can be used both morning and evening, we have chosen not to include SPF as this is not required in the evening. We would recommend applying this after your moisturiser to ensure your skin is fully mosturised so the product melts nicely into the skin. We hope this information helps - The Customer Care Centre Team

 Does this need makeup removal?

Asked by: Gloria Qin
Hi, thanks for getting in touch. You shouldn't need to use a separate makeup remover to remove our Environmental Defence Cream, this should be easily removed, in the evening with your usual cleanser. We hope this information helps - The Liz Earle Beauty Co. Team

Is the environmental defence cream slightly tinted. I hoped it would give a little coverage to be able to leave off foundation. 

Asked by: Deb58
Hi, thanks for getting in touch. Suitable for all skin types and tones, our Environmental Defence Cream has been developed with a naturally derived tinted pigment that blends well with all skin tones in order to dispel any pale cast on skin. The also makes a great primer for makeup. I hope this information helps however, should you require any further assistance with this, please contact our Customer Centre by emailing naturallyactive@lizearel.com - The Liz Earle Beauty Co. Team
