Pro-Biotic Cleanser The Results


(Cichorium intybus)

Sustainably grown on an organic farm in France, chicory is a natural prebiotic with skin-soothing properties. It has been used as a traditional herbal remedy for both skin and digestive health for hundreds of years.


(Simmondsia chinensis)

One of the skin’s most naturally compatible oils, jojoba promotes a healthy-looking glow without clogging pores. The jojoba shrub we source is native to the Sonoran Desert in the US, and Patagonian Desert in Argentina.


(Lunaria annua)

Lunaria oil is naturally rich in skin-compatible fatty acids, and is known to nourish and provide long-lasting hydration. Our lunaria is grown on 2 farms in Lincolnshire & Essex and is recognised by the Royal Horticultural Society for benefitting local insect populations.

Oat Extract

(Avena sativa)

Sustainably grown in Sweden and Finland, the oats we use are specially selected for their higher levels of Beta Glucan, a fibre known to help soothe and improve the appearance of skin. Our oats are fermented to produce a unique strain of Lactobacillus (friendly bacteria).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So soothing I have used cleanse and polish for many years.but have lately developed facial erythema that is as yet un diagnosed. It has made my face very sensitive and whilst doing tests for possible allergens, rosemary came up as a sensitivity. It is not the cause of my issues but I was told my skin needed gentle treatment. I saw the probiotic range and found the cleanser so gentle and soothing. No issues around eye area and sore areas feel calmer. I hope this range continues it is wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the smell I see lots of reviews complaining about the smell, I love it! It's natural and just smells of oats. My very sensitive skin loves this and it's difficult to find a product that doesn't irritate my rosacea. Please don't change the formula.

Oat is strong smelling but got used to it quickly.A little bit goes a long way & much cheaper than all the alternatives. It’s a .👍🏻 Up from me!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Light moisturiser Chose this moisturiser as I needed a light weight tube rather than heavy glass jar for travelling. It feels nice & light on my skin. But the oaty smell of it, as others have mentioned, does put me off buying it again I'm afraid.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Smells like wet dog I’m toying with whether to send this back or not. It’s a great cream once on but I can’t get used to this smell. I’ve been wondering what it reminds me of and I’ve realised it’s a wet dog smell. So strange! Not at all oaty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for sensitive skin I suffer from rosacea and from time to time it reminds me to take better care of it !! The winter time seems worse for any flare ups and I always make sure I've got a supply of probiotic products in stock. This day cream is instantly cooling and if necessary I use it several times a day. Like others I wasn't keen on smell of it but dont notice it anymore.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No sting Works well, no stinging (usually for me) once you get used to the oatish smell.

Will the pro-biotic day cream be back in stock at some point or has it been discontinued?

Asked by: Ericaanz
Hi, thanks for getting in touch. Unfortunately, our Pro-Biotic Botanical Day Cream has not proved as popular as we had hoped, and we have made the difficult decision to discontinue the product. Please be assured that the decision to discontinue any product from our collection is not one that we take lightly. We have a lot of love for our products, and much like our customers, we have firm favourites, so we do understand how disappointing it is when one is retired. It may help you to know, that our Pro-Biotic Balancing Night Cream is still available to purchase. The only difference between the two, is that the night cream contains a higher level of Jojoba oil, so this will feel slightly richer on the skin. We hope this information helps, and we do apologise for any disappointment - The Customer Care Centre Team

Hi there. Would this be good for combination/oily skin which is very prone to breakouts, particularly hormonal ones?

Asked by: Laneysecco
It is a very gentle and lightweight cream which helped me when I have had hormonal breakouts and sensitivity. The cream helps calm stressed skin and I found that using all three products in the pro-biotic range definitely improved my skin.

I notice there is no eye product in the range and no warning to avoid eye area on products (I’m using cleanser, day and night cream). Does this mean products are suitable for eye area? Without getting in eyes obviously!. Thanks for your help.

Asked by: Caroline33
Hi, thanks for getting in touch. Whilst our Pro-Biotic Balancing Day Cream is suited to those with dry, sensitive, reactive-feeling skin types looking for an ultra-gentle, deeply hydrating day cream, we would suggest using a cream that has been specifically formulated for the eyes around the eye area.  The skin around the eyes is finer than on the rest of the face and so eye creams tend to be lightweight formulations that have been developed to tackle the specific concerns of the delicate eye area, allowing for effective skin absorption without causing puffiness.  We would therefore always recommend a dedicated eye cream is used on this area. We hope this information helps - The Liz Earle Customer Care Centre Team

Is this cream suitable for skin with acne rosacea? I currently use the light cream but i get many flare ups… 

Asked by: Mel b
I can have sensitive skin but found this fine to use. Felt my skin was smoother using it and I know some can find the smell off putting but it disappears once the cream is absorbed which is pretty quick. I would suggest trying it as customer service is very good if things are unsuitable.  Hope that helps

Would this suit teenage acne skin? 

Asked by: Stanno2
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. Our Pro-Biotic Balancing Day Cream would be an ideal formulation for teenage, oily/blemish prone skin types where it helps to protect and strengthen skin`s natural moisture barrier to prevent water loss through the day for velvet soft, hydrated and balanced skin. This is ultra-gentle and fragranced free cream which is suitable for those looking for a soothing skincare range that can help reduce oiliness to reveal clearer looking skin whilst being kind on the skin. You can read more about it here. We hope this information is helpful, but please do not hesitate to contact our customer centre team on 01983 813913 if we can be of any further assistance. – Liz Earle Beauty Co.

Should you still use the Instant Boost Skin Tonic with this range?

Asked by: SairaA
Hi there, thanks for getting in touch, If you’re already using other Liz Earle products then you can absolutely mix and match to use our Pro-biotic Balancing Range as part of your routine, particularly suitable for when skin is sensitive, dry or reactive-feeling (for example due to the effects of weather/temperature changes, hormonal imbalances or lack of sleep and stress on skin). We hope this helps. - The Liz Earle Beauty Co. Team

Does the day cream contain an SPF, this is a must for sensitive skin like mine…

Asked by: Mrs Braes
Hi, thanks for getting in touch! Whilst our Pro-Biotic Day Cream does not contain an SPF, we will certainly pass on your suggestion to our Formulations team for consideration. You may wish to consider adding our Environmental Skin Defence Cream to your morning routine. This provides mineral SPF 25 protection against both UVA and UVB rays while also acting as a shield against pollution and blue light, which many make up formulas will not provide. The universally tinted lightweight cream can also be used as a primer, so it works well as a base for your make up; giving you a healthy-looking glow while protecting skin. As with all our products, we would recommend that you carry out a patch test first. We hope this information helps however, should you require any further assistance with this, we would ask you to kindly reach out to our Customer Centre by calling 01983 813913, or email - The Liz Earle Beauty Co.

Will this cream be replacing the Superskin moisturiser? Is it as suitable for sensitive skin as the Superskin unfragranced moisturiser?

Asked by: Bearsaholic
Hi there, thanks for your query. Our Pro-Biotic Balancing Day Cream has been formulated to help strengthen skin`s moisture barrier, leaving very sensitive, dehydrated and reactive skin looking calmer and healthier. However, it's not intended to be a substitute for our unfragranced Superskin Moisturiser and if your skin is particularly dry then you may wish to continue using our Superskin Moisturiser. We hope this helps! - The Liz Earle Beauty Co. Team
