About this moisturiser

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 Oleate, Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, Betaine, Lunaria annua seed oil, Tapioca starch, Polyglyceryl-2 Stearate, Polyhydroxystearic acid, Pentaerythrityl distearate, Cichorium intybus root extract, Lactobacillus ferment, Avena sativa (oat) kernel extract, Helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, Avena sativa (oat) kernel 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 5 out of 5 by from Probiotic cleanser and day cream I bought this as my skin is now showing hormonal changes due to the menopause- melismas and enlarged pores. I am 62 now and also noticing how much drier my skin has become. I used the Probiotic cleanser and moisturiser for 3 weeks, no other treatments and no makeup. I then returned use to my other Liz Earle products and feel the use of the probiotic range helped and feel my skin is improved.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for me Sadly I could only get an amount the size of a grain of rice to rub in. Any more just sat on the top of my face. Thus my face felt dry. Tried exfoliating a couple of times to see if I could improve absorption, but no success. First product I have ever had to return to Liz Earle, but no problem, and given a full refund.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice texture cream but awful smell Bought this when it first came out to try- it is lovely to use and it does make my skin feel good. Smallish tube for the price. However I really don’t like the smell of it, smells sour and very off putting. I much prefer the smell of the Liz Earle Skin Repair cream so will be going back to that. Such a shame.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bit runny I love everything Liz Earle!! Tried this cream as it was in offer , it’s okay but not as rich as I would like. Think I will stick to the repair cream as normal.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not enough hydration I have been really struggling to find products to help soothe & calm my dry sensitive skin on my cheeks & chin - this new range sounded perfect! I brought the cleanser, day & night cream & although I have seen some improvement in redness, the moisturisers just don’t provide enough hydration for me to the point where I get dry patches on my cheeks/chin which then leave them feeling sensitive again. I have just purchased the superskin moisturiser to use instead to see if that hopefully gives my skin what it needs - fingers crossed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pro biotic day cream Quite expensive for the small tube so only using a little each day, but absorbs easily into the skin without being greasy. Only problem is the ‘oaty’ smell instead of a nice fragrance.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dislike the smell I really do not like the smell of this product. It is very off putting and I won't buy it again. I hate waste so I will use it but it isn't a great start to the day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Feels good on my skin ... Haven't seen a visible improvement yet - but I do so wish it had some sort of natural fragrance - I really don't like the smell, rather oily ...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still disappointed This cream is similar to the original Liz Earl cream that I used for over 20 years but without the lovely perfume. Not sure I will buy it again. Disappointed that you have changed the distinct beautiful perfume of the original products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pro biotic day cream I purchased this a few weeks ago and I'm very pleased with this cream. It does have a distinctive smell which is unpleasant but it dissappears very quickly. My skin feels moisturised all day and is excellent on sensitive skin x

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Please sort out the smell A great product and highly moisturising but why I’ve given 3 stars is the smell. Its a horrible smell and is putting me off - can you possible make it smell nicer?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works for me This is lovely to use and very soothing and comforting. Has a slight smell to it which is different, but not unpleasant. Sinks in beautifully. Am so impressed that i am awaiting the night cream as i definitely need something richer at night for my dry skin. Outstanding range for us sensitive skin souls. Happy, happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving it so far! I have used this for 3 days now and I really like it. I also bought the cleanser and night cream in this range. I have used Liz Earle for over 20 years and had begun to get a bit disappointed with the change of formula to the skin repair (I have used both the original skin repair in normal and light and superskin for a loooong time). I have tried numerous times to get on with the skin repair new formulas in all 3 variants but my sensitive perimenopausal skin (with a tiny patch of perioral dermatitis) just doesn't like it, it stings and itches and I just find the fragrance too strong for me. Well, this moisturiser, in fact all the range, might just have won me back over. I find the cleanser works just as effectively as Cleanse and Polish and my skin feels fresh and smooth after use. This moisturiser is lovely and light, no greasy feeling but feels hydrating- the night version is slightly thicker in texture but also sinks in quickly and hydrates nicely. You also don't need much of any of the products so it's eccomonical. My skin hasn't reacted at all. There is no added fragrance, not even a masking essential oil which is sometimes added to fragrance free products to make them smell more pleasant, which is excellent as even this irritates my fussy skin. It smells very clean to me, and good for you- wholesome I would say. Perhaps very slightly oaty, but I like it and it quickly fades anyway. Well done Liz earle.

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: Fan of all Liz Earle
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
