How to use

Skin Repair™ Moisturiser

(Persea gratissima)

Legendary for its healthy fat content and emollient properties, the avocado is native to Central America. To extract the vitamin-rich, skin-nourishing oil, the succulent flesh of the ripe fruit is squeezed.


(Borago officinalis)

Renowned for its fantastic moisturising properties, we source our borage from England, where the pure, GLA-rich oil is pressed from the shiny, dark brown seeds of the bright blue flower.


(Echinacea angustifolia/purpurea)

Used for its toning and conditioning properties, Echinacea is native to North America. We source our skin-smoothing extract from within the United Kingdom, where the plant is harvested in July and August before the ingredient is extracted and micro-filtered from the flowers, leaves and stem.


(Humulus lupulus)

Used for its mild astringent properties, we source our hops from the United Kingdom and Germany, where the leafy green hop strobiles are harvested in August and September before they are fully ripe. The strobiles are then dried in the shade before being extracted to create our ingredient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely light cream This is my second gel cream, I love the light texture and it absorbs really quickly into the skin. Leaving skin feeling soft and moisturised ready to apply makeup or to leave my skin feeling loved and cared for. I only ware makeup for work, but my skin looks fresh and glowing even with out makeup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels fresh I bought the larger size after I'd received it in my trial pack. I'd selected the oily skin type and received the gel cream in the pack. It feels fresh on my face and dries really quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I am a mature lady with oily skin. This gel cream is everything I hoped it would be. It moisturises and hydrates without leaving my skin oily.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Spotty Skin…..Again! I first started using Liz Earle products years ago. I was getting very bad spots and someone kindly recommended Liz Earle….and so for many years, I have happily used Skin Repair Light Moisturiser. Together with that and Cleanse & Polish, my breakouts cleared up completely. I was really surprised and disappointed to see that the Light Moisturiser had been discontinued. I bought this gel as I thought it would calm my ruddy complexion as well as moisturise. How wrong could I be? This gives me really bad skin and I’m back where I started with breakouts that just won’t go away. I have also tried the Light Cream, with the same effect, so I am now trying to find an alternative brand. A very disappointing “improvement” in my opinion. I can see by other reviews that I’m not alone. I know companies have to advance, but rather than replace an entire range, could the old range not just have been repackaged in more sustainable packaging? Using glass jars is the only good thing about this. As a few people have said “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous moisturiser I have ridiculously sensitive skin -I react so badly to some skin products that it looks like my skin is burnt. This moisturiser is brilliant- totally calms and soothes my skin. Smells beautiful too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for men Bought this for my husband who has oily skin but also dry areas, this moisturiser has made a real difference as it’s not greasy, it absorbs quickly and does not leave the skin shiny. Now purchasing this for my son who works outside in construction, it helps to protect his skin from drying out in the harsh weather. Both are pleased with results, it’s great for men.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous I have combination skin so somedays it’s oily and somedays it’s really dry. I am not a fan of creams that make my skin feel oily so this is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible! Beautiful cream. Sinks straight in and leaves skin soft and supple without being heavy or greasy. Goes really far too, you only need a little. It's reduced redness and smoothed lines around my eyes. Could not recommend more. If you need a heavier cream I'd get the rich one.
Date published: 2022-01-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life changing I know it is a cliche but I do not like leaving reviews. I have to in this instance as the product is so soothing and helpful. I have severe acne rosacea and rarely find any product that doesn't irritate. Daily use makes a significant difference.
Date published: 2022-01-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant I buy this cream on a regular basis. I have combination skin with occasional breakouts on my chin. This cream leaves my skin feeling soft and supple without causing any excess oily patches. This is the perfect cream for skin that is needs moisture but at the right amount. I would highly recommend this!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Burns my NON-sensitive skin! I used to love the original moisturiser formula, was gentle on the skin and smelt great, one I kept coming back to. This new formula, and I have tried the rich and the gel cream, both burnt my skin and eyes. I have no allergies and my skin isn’t sensitive so I’ve no idea why this happened. Please bring back the old formula as this one is just awful..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Purchases I have used Liz Earle now for many years and really happy with the products. Although I bought three full size products recently and when they arrived there wasn’t any free testers or anything for the money I had spent. The shop I used to go to has closed down the loyalty scheme used to be excellent just seems now I have no choice to order online and there’s no loyalty scheme not even a free tester!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Devine I have previously used another skin repair moisturiser product and decided to try this gel formulation after reading reviews. I really love this product, the smell is lovely but not overpowering, I have sensitive skin and often need a fragrance free product but this formulation doesn't irritate. The gel covers well, is cool and soothing, sinks in rapidly and provides great hydration for my mid 50s skin. Can apply makeup over within a minute. Definitely recommend.

Why does jar boast 72 hours of hydration. If you use Liz Earle, your moisturiser would be applied  at least twice a day. So why would you need 72 hours. Confused!

Asked by: Jaydee1
Hi, thanks for getting in touch. Whilst we appreciate that you will be actually be washing your face several times during a 72-hour period, this is a way of measuring the moisture retention, so we can express how effective this moisturiser really is. We hope this helps - The Liz Earle Beauty Co. Team

is the product suitable for teenage acne? is the product non-comedogenic?

Asked by: mmauve
Thank you for your question. All skin, however oily or blemish prone, needs nurturing with vitamins and essential fatty acids twice a day, morning and night to ensure that it's in the best possible condition. The best formulation for teenage, ance prone or oily skin types would be our Skin Repair Gel Cream. Our Gel Cream is a cool lightweight translucent cream gel which is slighted mattifying on the skin and provides refreshing shine-free hydration. All our products in the Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare range have not been tested for comedogenicity. However, we believe that one ingredient that could cause a product to be comedogenic is mineral oil and this is not something that is used in our skincare range, as we believe that plant oils are better for the skin. Hope this helps. – The Liz Earle Beauty Co Team.

Can you tell me if the formula for the gel moisturiser has changed please?  I have ordered some from QVC & it has a very unpleasant & distinctive smell unlike the gel cream I have previously purchased directly from yourselves. 

Asked by: Carla04
Hi, thanks for getting in touch! We are sorry to hear of your disappointment with the fragrance of our Skin Repair Gel Cream and can confirm that there have been no recent changes to the formulation of this product. Sometimes, due to differing harvesting methods we use, different locations and seasons this can affect the natural plant oils and botanicals we use, these can occasionally have an impact on the colour, aroma or texture of a formulation. This should only be very minimal though and does not affect the performance of the product. I hope this information helps however, if you do require any further assistance, please reach out to our Customer Centre by calling 01983 813913 or email - The Liz Earle Beauty Co. Team
