Aloe Vera

ALOE VERA

Featuring formidable hydrating, soothing and cooling properties, our aloe vera is harvested in the morning to maximise the amount of juice the sword-shaped fronds yield, before being freeze-dried to create a powder.

(Calendula officinalis)

Well-known for its calming and soothing effect on skin, we source our calendula from Egypt, where our ingredient is solvent extracted from the petals of the flower.

Chamomile

CHAMOMILE EXTRACT
(Anthemis nobilis)

Legendary for its skin-soothing properties, the flowers of this aromatic perennial are harvested in England in the summer, before the ingredient is solvent extracted from the fragrant flower.

Cucumber

CUCUMBER EXTRACT
(Cucumis sativus)

Loved for its intensely soothing, cooling and hydrating properties, we source our cucumber from within the UK, where our ingredient is produced from the fresh, green flesh of the vegetable.

Aqua (water), Aloe barbadensis (aloe vera) leaf juice, Glycerin, PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil, Tocopherol (vitamin E), Cucumis sativus (cucumber) fruit extract, Anthemis nobilis (chamomile) flower extract, Calendula officinalis (calendula) flower extract, Humulus lupulus (hops) extract, Phenoxyethanol, Panthenol, Allantoin, Parfum (fragrance), Benzoic acid, Tocopheryl acetate, Dehydroacetic acid, Sodium hydroxide, Ethylhexylglycerin, Linalool, Limonene, Citronellol, Geraniol, Coumarin, Citric acid, Potassium sorbate.

You asked, we listened. We’ve brought the original formula of our Instant Boost™ Skin Tonic back. Whether you’re a long-time fan or discovering this well-loved product for the first time, we’ve answered your frequently asked questions below.

 

Is the packaging still in line with your sustainability goals?

It is important that we retain the progress we’ve made on packaging sustainability. That’s why we’ve managed to return to the old-style twist-up packaging while making these packs using 50% recycled materials – they’re fully recyclable too!

Have you gone back to a formula with PEGs?

Yes, we have reverted to our original formula, which does use PEGs as part of its preservative system. We chose to try and remove PEGs from our formula, knowing that some customers prefer to avoid these ingredients altogether. However, please rest assumed that our products have always been, and continue to be safe to use.

Will you move Eyebright™ back to the original formulation and pack too?

As with Instant Boost™ Skin Tonic, we have been listening closely to the feedback of you, our customers, and we are currently working on a solution for this.

Will you bring back the old Skin Repair™?

We understand that some of our long-standing customers were unhappy with the relaunch of Skin Repair™, but we also received positive feedback. While we have no plans to bring back the original formulas, we are in the process of reviewing the range.

Can I still purchase the updated formula?

Yes, for the time being to avoid unecessary waste. Both formulas contain all the same naturally active ingredients, at the same effective levels, so we are confident you will continue to see all the hydrating, soothing skin benefits you’ve come to enjoy from our Instant Boost™ Skin Tonic. Shop the updated formula.

Why does the original version feel and smell different to the updated version?

The original formula uses a different preservative system which can impact how you experience the feel and scent. However, rest assured that it contains all the same naturally active ingredients, at the same effective levels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent hydration I love how hydrated my skin feels since using this. I’ve always suffered with dry skin and nothing has worked to overcome this for some time. However since using this my skin feels noticeably more hydrated and smoother to touch! I feel that my skin looks much more radiant now too

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gentle toner for dry skin This toner is ideally suited to dry skin as it tones & removes traces of cleanser without drying out skin. It feels really soothing to use and is alcohol free. The fragrance is a bit like baby lotion. It leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth & moisturised and contains lots of nourishing natural ingredients. However if you have oily skin like mine and are after a zingy tightening toner this one isn’t for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leaves my skin feeling hydrated and refreshed This really has been marvellous for my skin. I use this after I have cleansed my face and before I apply my moisturiser and it really hydrates my skin and it’s not drying at all which I’ve had problems with in the past. It also makes my skin look and feel really refreshed and brighter too. I will certainly be keeping this in my daily skincare routine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!! Bought this on my last shop as i've got the cleanser and been thinking about purchasing the matching tonic for a while now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm not sure! I've been using this for a week, but firstly - it leaves my skin sticky. I use it with reusable cotton pads, so I thought this was the issue, but even with disposables my skin is still left feeling sticky - not something I am keen on in the warmer weather for sure. I have tried using more, and I have tried using less. It's not like a film on my skin, it's just.. sticky. It does disappear after moisturising and it doesn't ball up on the skin or anything. However, I have noticed minor skin improvements - my skin feels more hydrated. It feels softer. So I do think something is working and I just need to adapt my routine a little more maybe! I am going to continue using this, and hope either the sticky feeling goes away or I get used to it! I've also never tried Liz Earle before, so maybe this is entirely normal? I love the smell - it reminds me of bedtime baby powder I used to use on my kids and brings back memories!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I bought this to see if it would improve my dry tired looking skin. I use the full Liz Earle skin care regime , hot cloth cleanse and polish as well as the toner so was hoping this would compliment the rest of the range and i certainly was not disappointed. After using this, I do want to say for me the benefits were instant. My skin felt refreshed and hydrated. and it left my skin feeling amazingly smooth. I found the value for money to be good as with all products a little goes a long way. I will be adding this to my regular routine now. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Refreshing Toner! This refreshing toner is brilliant to give hydrating, nourished, soft and smooth base to the skin. The texture is so light yet so powerful to make my skin smooth and fresh after applying it. The product has botanical infused formula with aloe vera, cucumber, calendula and vitamin E to give nourished even skin base and healthy look. The rose scent is uplifting and refreshing. I use it day and night both after cleansing the face! Overall, really liked the product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely product Previous to using this product I was never too keen on tonics as I do not think that they do very much for the skin but after using this Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic each morning and night I think its great and I can feel the benefits. I have added it into my routine and use it after cleansing and before moisturising my face. The scent is lovely and it feels so nice when I swipe it all over my face with a cotton pad, it leaves my skin feeling refreshed, soothed and hydrated.
Date published: 2022-06-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I've purchased this product the other day, and I must say it is a really good one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing First time trying this product and I love it. Beautiful fragrance of rose and works well to keep my skin clean and clear. I add a little product to cotton wool and sweep over my face and neck twice a day before my moisturiser. It helps remove impurities that would normally clog my pores. Would definitely recommend!
Date published: 2022-06-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I love the Instant Boost skin tonic and it has made my skin so much softer and much more hydrated. I apply with cotton wool pads morning and evening. Apply before my make up and I have found it prepares my skin really well. After I have removed my make up in the evening I give my skin another boost which makes me feels so clean and fresh. The twist top lid is an added bonus, easy to open and close. The smell of the product is very light and fresh, not at all overpowering. All in all this is a fantastic product which I would definitely recommend
Date published: 2022-06-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow The rose scent is an amazing smell, using this made my daily skincare regime feel really special, and my skin feels extra soft after using the Liz Earle night cream. Used again in the morning and the scent just had me an unusually relaxed start to the day while my skin looked and felt fabulous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great This skin tonic is brilliant. Very refreshing for my skin and left it nice and hydrated. I feel like my skin has a nice glow to it and definitely feels healthier. It’s not sticky and easy to apply and it absorbs into the skin really well. This also has a nice fragrance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Uplifting Toner I absolutely loved using this as my new toner. After using it for a week my skin felt hydrated so smooth and fresh. With added calendula, cucumber and Aloe vera it gave a uplifting fresh scent, very soothing to my skin. I love how it is alcohol free and gentle on my skin. The only thing I would prefer is the opener to be abit different as I kept wasting abit of product. Otherwise highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I am so pleased with this skin tonic! It smells nice and leaves my skin really soft. I love that it is ethical, cruelty free and that the bottle is made using recycled materials. I'm also impressed that it is made in the UK which means it will have a lower carbon footprint than if it were imported. I would definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes skin feel hydrated This toner makes my skin feel firm but hydrated, I apply it after cleansing using a cotton pad. The smell is also lovely and the product also feels soothing when applied to the skin. Would highly recommend this toner.

Why did you change the formula for the skin tonic In the first place? I was told by assistant in Boots that it was just the packaging had changed but unfortunately bought it and it was different and could not use it.

Asked by: CCRE
Hi, thanks for getting in touch. When we make any changes to a formulation it is always with the best intentions, and we understand that increasingly customers want to use only the most gentle, naturally derived ingredients on their skin. For this reason, we have been trying to make improvements to the products you love, including moving our Instant Boost Skin Tonic to a more plant-based formula. However, based on feedback we have received from our customers, we have made the decision to revert back to our much loved formulation in the twist top bottle. This is now available to purchase with us direct, and with our authorised stockists such as Boots and John Lewis. We hope this information helps - The Liz Earle Customer Centre Team

Is it definitely 100% the original formula? I really don’t want to waste money buying multiple bottles and end up with the sticky new one again :’( it feels too good to be true ….

Asked by: JONESF92
Hi there, thanks for getting in touch. I am pleased to confirm that our original formula is back, so there is no need to worry at all. Please do call our friendly customer centre on 01983 813913 if you'd like to chat about the return of our Instant Boost Skin Tonic in some more detail. - The Liz Earle Beauty Co. Team
