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).

Aqua (water), Propanediol, Isoamyl Laurate, Coco-caprylate/caprate, Lactococcus Ferment Lysate, Polyglyceryl-2 Stearate, Betaine, Lunaria annua seed oil, Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, Tapioca starch, Glyceryl stearate, Stearyl alcohol, Avena sativa (oat) kernel oil, Pentaerythrityl distearate, Cichorium intybus root extract, Avena sativa (oat) kernel extract, Lactobacillus ferment, Helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl glycol, Cetearyl alcohol, Xanthan gum, Sodium gluconate, Sodium benzoate, Lactic acid, Sodium chloride, Potassium sorbate, Citric acid, Tocopherol (vitamin E), Sodium hydroxide.

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely texture Lovely light moisturising texture. It was fragrance free once massaged in. However the smell of the cream whilst applying was like something gone off. I returned after trying it for a few days. It does what it says on the tin but the smell lets it down. Thankyou Liz Earle for the free return and prompt refund. I have bought Superskin fragrance free and I'm happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I’ve seen a lot of negative reviews about the smell of this product, but I really wanted to try it as I liked the idea of the probiotic benefits. I’d always used Liz Earle moisturisers, so decided to ignore the reviews and purchase it. The smell of the product isn’t unpleasant - it smells like oats. Okay, some people might not like the idea of putting something that smells a bit like porridge in their face, but it’s certainly not a deal-breaker for me. The product itself is quickly absorbed, being light in texture and doesn’t leave a film on my face. I am prone to eczema and also occasionally greasy skin, so usually I go for a light moisturiser (unless I’m having a breakout of dry patches). You don’t need to apply a lot. I can’t fault this product, and I think I’ll be buying it again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from That smell yuk! I thought I’d try this as it is in a tube which I prefer, but so disappointed in the horrible cow pat odour! What is it? I’ve tried a few time using it and it feels really lovely on but that smell has put me off using it any more and am going to have to bin it. 😢 Would have rated it much higher if it didn’t stink…sorry as I love every other product I have from shower gel, body cream, shampoo, conditioner etc etc

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT! This is got to be the best moisturizer for sensitive skin. Like others was not keen on the smell initially but persevere, within a few days can smell nothing. Have been using for over a year now and not once have I had a problem with it. Glides on the skin like silk, instantly feels comforted and soothed. Never thought anything would be better than Superskin but this even beats that, could not be without and it comes in a handy tube so I can carry it with me at all times. If you have sensitive skin your not going to find anything better on the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Product for Reactive Skin. I have been using this on & off since it came out. This is my saviour along with the cleanser & night cream whenever my skin becomes ultra sensitive & reactive. I find after Christmas and the Summer my skin needs TLC and this works to get my skin back in balance. I use this day cream ( & the others) for about a month then go back to my usual Liz Earle products. Thoroughly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my Rosacea I have been using this product for over a year now. It’s great for my Rosacea. It has brought down the redness. My face feels all moisturised after cleansing, not tight and dry like other brands I have used. I team this with the day and night cream.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comforting, hydrating and balancing naturals After trouble with my skin I was pointed in the direction of this cream by the great customer team at Liz Earle - I miss the old Skin Repair rich which was my go-to comforter (unfortunately I don't find the new version suits my skin) - but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with this Pro-Biotic Day Cream. I know the smell doesn't suit everyone but I appreciated its natural, herby/oaty smell, and it doesn't linger. It really soothed and balanced by reactive skin. It also sinks in easily, hydrates for the day, and goes a long way - it's a bit of a straightforward, unfussy marvel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Moisturiser I have only used this for a week as I have been using super skin for a number of years but just felt I needed a change. I have recently started using the biotic night cream so I thought to try the day cream. So far I am very pleased with the results. The texture is good and The aroma is very different from super skin but it doesn’t linger. I am pleased with results and the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Follow up review I’ve been using this range for several months now. Initially I found the fragrance a little bit ‘earthy’ upon using. In my previous review I mentioned this and also said it does not linger, just noticeable upon application. Have got used to this and no longer notice it at all! The face moisturiser is perfect for my sensitive mature skin. No dryness, skin feels clean and comfortable. Together with the cleansing milk and night cream it is a perfect combination for me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wouldn’t buy again I bought this as it was cheaper than the usual LE moisturiser i have. It didn’t have the depth and silkiness i like in a moisturiser and within 48 hours i had three spots on my face, something i have rarely had since using LE and my skin did not feel soft

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not keen on the fragrance Love all Liz Earle products, second time using this and I forgot the last time I didn’t like the smell of it , works well on my skin just don’t like the fragrance at all, very musty and not revitalising at all

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skin feels calm and comfortable In the first use my skin felt instantly.calmer. After 2 weeks my skin feels incredibly calm, comfortable and hydrated (just like my skin did when I first switched to Liz Earle products over 15 years ago but I now find many of the moisturiser, serum and cleanser formulas are making my skin feel sensitive and irritated). A little goes a long way. The texture is lovely and smooth, not at all heavy or clogging, and I haven't needed a serum during the day. A few users have complained about the lack of scent but I don't mind that at all, it just smells like a plain cream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probiotic cleanser and day cream I absolutely love the probiotic cleanser and day cream. My skin loves the products and I will definitely be ordering again!!
Date published: 2022-10-28
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a great fragrance! I have bought both the day and night creams of the pro-biotic range and have to put on bio oil over it, to mask the fragrance!! It is not pleasant at all, like smelly socks! The bio oil does the trick to mask it but I cant use the bio oil in the day because I wear foundation. I think it is quite good but it may be the combo with the bio oil! Please could you do something about the fragrance of the pro-biotic it is not good at all!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The smell is horrific I really wanted to like this because it seems to tick all the boxes. However the smell is horrific, it almost makes me gag and I don’t look forward to using the product. The plus side is that the smell doesn’t linger but its not a beautiful experience. Also with this cream you really need to work it in as it can leave behind white residue and the excess movement to the face is a no go for sensitive skin. Ill continue to use it because I’ve spent money on it but I definitely wont repurchase. A rare dud from Liz Earle!

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
