Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes my skin feel soft and smooth I have been using this product for a couple of years now. Used 2/3 times a week at bedtime, I do wake up to skin that feels brighter and with some elasticity. I have combination skin and menopause has added its own challenges. However, using this mask as part of my nighttime routine has definitely helped soften those pesky lines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING WONDER PRODUCT! This is one of the best products I have ever used for restoring beautiful moist and plump skin. I recently went into menopause and for the first time in my life, my skin became quite problematic, super dry, flaky and spotty....eeeek! I had stopped using restore skin paste for a while as my skin was already in great condition, but I have pulled this product back out the drawer and OH MY GOODNESS what a difference it has made. Within 48 hours of use my skin is looking like the old me again. AMAZING - I'm stocking up on more immediately!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good all rounder I’ve been using Liz Earle products after a recommendation from my mum. I have always had problem skin, breakouts, scarring, really dry but sometimes oily too. Since using these products my skin is unrecognisable, I now have the confidence to go out without make up (if I’m feeling lazy). Specifically the paste is brilliant if you want something thicker than a moisturiser but without the oily ness of an intense cream. It’s brilliant, can’t recommend more highly, plus it lasts for ages as you only need a small amount.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle worker I noticed my skin becoming more dehydrated and sensitive with the change of seasons, but didn't want a heavy night cream as these often break me out. Wearing a mask for 40 hours a week at work has also caused a flare up of some cystic acne. I was recommended the CICA paste at a Liz Earle counter, and the difference has been immediate. She advised me to use it two-three times per week, and it helps to hydrate, smooth, reduce redness/inflammation, ease flakiness, and soften my skin. I was worried it would be too rich and exacerbate a breakout but it does the opposite and helps to soothe spots, whilst also adding some moisture to my skin. You only need a little, so I'm expecting the tube to last at least a couple of months. Very happy indeed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing results! I have been using this regularly now twice or three times a week and have found that my skin is a lot clearer. It has calmed and balanced my skin texture and blemishes. It’s easy to apply and while it sounds a mask, it is only a thin layer needed and it is absorbed in so when you sleep it doesn’t transfer on to you pillows. When I wash the face first thing in the morning, it looks radiant and bright! Love using this alongside/alternation the new alt_retinol overnight mask.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works a treat This paste is amazing! I suffer from occasional flare ups acne rosacea as well as having to wear a surgical face mask all day at work all day resulting in a not very happy chin. A thin layer of this at night before I go to bed helps to calm any redness or signs of impending breakouts. I also give it to me teenage daughter to use and again after a few applications her spotty, greasy skin is looking a lot calmer and clearer. A small amount is all that needed and allow to dry before you put your head on the pillow. Tube will last for ages!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Comfort Blanket for Skin I bought this and initially used it as a mask before realising that I could use it as a night cream. It's so thick and creamy my skin loves it. I wish I'd discovered this earlier it really helps my skin calm and soothe when it feels a bit stressed out. I use it a couple of times a week and I'm very happy with the results.

What would be the best way/routine to use Cica paste, moisturising mask and night cream. I have very dry skin and these all work for me but I don’t know how to use them in a regular routine?

Asked by: Ronni77
Hi, thanks for getting in touch. Our CICA Restore Skin Paste helps to soothe, calm and nourish your skin while you sleep. Suitable for all skin types however, this is perfect for those with dry skin, or those that suffer with any redness or sensitivity. All our formulations are made as mild and gentle as possible, so our products can be used by those with even the most sensitive skin. However, as everyone's skin is so very different, what may be suitable for some, may not be suitable for others. Some people can react to the most gentle of ingredients, in the same way we can react to certain foods, so we always stress the importance of carrying out a patch test, when using any product for the first time. This should be used in the evening, after you have cleansed and toned. If you have very dry skin, you can apply this after your regular moisturiser in the evening. We would suggest using a specific night cream on alternate evenings to the CICA Paste. We hope this information helps however, should you require more bespoke skincare advice or, product recommendations, we would ask you to kindly contact our Customer Care Centre by calling 01983 813913. Our phone lines are open Monday to Friday, 8am until 5.30pm - The Customer Care Centre Team

I bought this recently and it feels lovely on my skin, but I’m not sure how much to use. A thin layer absorbs straight into my skin just like a regular moisturiser and is not visible. Does it sound like I am applying the correct amount? Thanks! 

Asked by: Kerry158
Thank you for your question. From the description of how much you are using, it sounds as if you are using the correct amount. We would generally suggest applying a thin layer onto your face and leave on overnight. It’s not unusual for the CICA to Restore Skin Paste to absorb quickly into the skin, which is why this treatment mask is ideal for night-time use and not transferring onto your pillow as you sleep. Please be assured your skin is benefitting from all the restorative and nourishing properties as you sleep even with a small amount applied. We hope this information helps- The Liz Earle Customer Care Centre Team.

Would this help rosacea - I have the redness and pustular variety. I’m considering it, but am concerned it might be £32 wasted. 

Asked by: janey_liz
Hi, thanks for getting in touch. As our products are not intended for medical use we regret that we are unable to advise if it would be suitable as we do not know what ingredients your skin may be sensitive to. It may be worth checking with your GP for further advice. Our CICA Restore Skin Paste has received some wonderful feedback from customers that suffer from rosacea. This product works overnight to visibly improve the appearance of imperfections by boosting the skins moisture barrier. It is also instantly calming and soothing and provides the skin with up to 48 hours of hydration. However, if you do decide to try this, we would suggest that you carry out a patch test first. A little should be applied to a small area such as the crook of the elbow or behind the ear at least 24 hours before use. Should you experience any redness, irritation or discomfort during the next 24 hours – or at any point during use - then you should immediately discontinue use and we would not recommend use of that particular product. We also have a great 60 day returns policy, should you find any products unsuitable and need to return them to us. We hope this information helps - The Liz Earle Customer Care Centre

Is this similar to the super skin over night mask. I can’t find the overnight mask so was wondering if it was discontinued and replaced with this?

Asked by: Kim12334
Hi, thanks for getting in touch. We realised that Superskin Overnight Mask, when applied as a light layer does not require rinsing off in the morning and can be used as a night cream. A night cream is something we often hear from our customers that they would like introduced to our range - sooner rather than later. So for us it felt like a natural step to transition this into a hybrid product that can have a dual use, so when we changed the packaging of our Superskin range, we also changed the name of this product to Superskin Nourishing Night Cream which can be found on our website. You can still use as an overnight mask if you apply a thicker layer, and rinse off with your morning cleanse. Whilst our CICA Restore Skin Paste will moisturise and hydrate your skin, this easy to apply treatment works to visibly improve the appearance of imperfections overnight by restoring skin's moisture barrier, while also providing 48 hours of intense hydration. Enriched with a gentle but powerful combination of naturally active ingredients including restorative Centella asiatica (CICA) and resurrection plant, plus bilberry and wild plum to soothe and comfort. We hope this information helps however, should you require any further assistance with this, or require some more bespoke skincare advise, we would ask you to kindly contact our Customer Centre by calling 01983 813913, or email - The Liz Earle Customer Care Centre Team

is this produce effective on age spots, red patches and scarring.

Asked by: agedperson
Hi there, thanks for getting in touch. Suitable for all skin types, CICA Restore Skin Paste is a creamy overnight skincare treatment which works alongside the body’s natural night time rejuvenation process – when cell activity peaks to repair the day’s damage – to deliver 48 hours of intense hydration to visibly improve the appearance of imperfections overnight. The ingredient CICA can certainly help with redness on the skin. When it comes to pigmentation and scarring Rosehip oil has visibly regenerative properties. It’s the most effective plant oil for skin repair and restoration. Clinical studies have proven its ability to soften scars, reduce 'age' pigmentation spots and patches and improve the appearance of fine surface lines. Superskin Concentrate for Night contains Rosehip oil and would be a great choice for the above concerns with prolonged use. Our Calming Botanical Drops are also good for redness, as this contains Giant Hyssop which is known to reduce redness. We do hope this helps. - The Liz Earle Beauty Co. Team
