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 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!!

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 5 out of 5 by from Great cream for problem skin! I buy this cream for my teenage daughter whose skin flares up with her cycle and it has definitely lessens the outbreak. She uses this with the probiotic cleanser.

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!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Have used Liz Earle for over 20 years and it’s been my go to for cleanse tone and moisturise, infact wouldn’t use anything else!! I was disappointed with the Probiotic balancing cream. It was very thin, tinted and left crease marks and didn’t feel like a moisturiser which is what I thought I’d ordered as my normal moisturiser did not seem to be available. Not a fan-sorry. Never been disappointed with a Liz Earle product before

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Feels nice I bought this and have used it for a week. It feels nice on my skin although I don't like the smell. Very musty and oaty which it did say in previous reviews but really does feel a bit too mother earth for me. Almost smells dirty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Love this product I used to suffer from really oily skin especially having to still wear masks but I use this day and night and it is amazing
Date published: 2022-08-16
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not keen I thought I would try this instead of my usual skin repair. Very disappointed it’s appears to sit on top of the skin when first applied and my skin doesn’t feel hydrated afterwards. Will be going back to my usual Liz Earle moisturiser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the smell! I have been using this for a while, i previously used a another companies Vitamin E product but i am now switching to this. I actually love the smell, i think it smells of oats & cocoa, comforting. it also makes my skin feel really soft without feeling greasy or heavy. Plus its Vegan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the fact its pro biotic Lovely creamy light cream, goes on beautifully. Can’t say I notice any fragrance but I’m definitely a fan now.
Date published: 2022-07-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro-Biotic day and night cream I really like these products. I did not like the skin repair when it was modified so this was a welcome addition. It sinks into the skin beautifully. A suggestion: can this be put into a jar and made bigger? The bottles do not last long and I have to cut the ends off them in order to get to a reasonable amount that has become stuck around the base. It would be very wasteful if I did not do this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Soft skin I bought this 2 weeks ago on first application my skin tingled for a few minutes after but that soon passes. I like the results so far it has calmed my red blotchy skin and my dry patches have gone and it leaves my skin soft all day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous I actually like the oaty smell of this as it smells full of natural ingredients as opposed to irritating fragrance. Goes on beautifully light weight skin looks great and it has soothed my rosea - love it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good cream but not a nice smell There are lots of positives to this cream, its lightweight, it absorbs very quickly, it doesnt leave a residue and it's super sensitive. However it smells a bit odd, but you only notice this for about a minute!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WONDERFUL! This feels amazing on the face after I have tonic'ed. It tingles on the face slightly which I think, is doing some healing. I now swear by this product! Thank you, Liz Earle Team X

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Weird smell Wow mixed bag with this product. It’s natural and so nice smoothe and silky on your skin. My skin instantly felt more moisturised following using it . My make up went on beautifully after applying too but it’s the smell I just don’t like it’s like a cross between oats and nuts . It does fade but quite strong for 10 mins at least .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my skin Love the liz earle products and this is a great one. I have mixed skin so I have to be careful with some of my products I use on my face as I easily breakout. This though is great and leaves my skin glowing and soft and smooth! like it
Date published: 2022-06-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great product I bought this moisturiser because it was in a squeezy bottle, which I think makes it easier for me to gauage how much I'm putting on. I also prefer not to be dipping my fingers in and scraping off excess back into the pot. It spreads really well and absorbs nicely into my skin, leaving it hydrated but not greasy. The smell is fairly neutral, not unpleasant but also not fragranced. If I had the option, I'd probably prefer a light scent to it, but it's not really a problem. My skin tends to react easily but I've not had any problem with this cream and I've been using it for well over a week. It doesn't sting my eyes if I spread it too close either, which lower quality moisturisers definitely do! I'd say it's a bit richer than the light skin repair cream, but that actually works really well for me, especially after exfoliating or being outside for longer periods. Overall I am really pleased. Another good purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Men can use this too I'm new to using moisturising products as I'm a relatively old fashioned man but since starting a new job working with cement, my skin (especially hands) is very dry. Starting using this cream and everytime I wake up the next morning there is a good difference. A little goes a long way, it seems nice and isn't too greasy feeling. I've used it when I began peeling due to sunburn too and it worked a treat.
Date published: 2022-06-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely consistency I bought this Day Cream about 6 weeks ago. A small amount goes a long way and soaks in really well leaving my skin soft. The only reason I gave it 4 stars would be the slight strange smell when you first put it on but this fades extremely quickly and doesn't return. Love Liz Earle products - have tried others but always return to Liz Earle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not very hydrating So I’ve been wearing this moisturiser for about two weeks now and it’s not very hydrating. I feel like I have to top up my moisturiser during the day whereas before I didn’t have to do this. The small amount of product does go a long way however it doesn’t leave skin feeling soft and smooth. Unfortunately I don’t think I’ll be buying it again.
Date published: 2022-06-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cream I really love this cream. It's very light and makes my skin feel refreshed. It rubs in easily and you only need a small amount, which means it lasts for ages. It's not heavily scented too so is fresh but not overpowering. I'll definitely be using it a lot more in future and looking at what else in the range I can switch to.
Date published: 2022-05-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from it's really good I quite like this cream, it's really light and sinks into the skin effortlessly. My skin looks brighter and more radiant since I started using it. I've found that a little goes a long way, which is a good bonus, so I feel this product wood last a good few months. I'd recommend this cream, it does what it says!
Date published: 2022-05-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gentle moisturiser I absolutely love this cream, it’s so gentle, deeply hydrates and balance my sensitive skin. Little amount is enough to cover all face , works great under the make up, my skin looks healthier and it’s hydrated.
Date published: 2022-05-26
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Soft, nourished skin with no breakouts. This face cream has made my skin feel lovely and soft. It is quite rich and you don’t need a lot. It feels like it’s going to leave my face greasy at first, but then it soaks in after 5 minutes or so. It should last a long time. I use a pea - sized amount each day. Sits well under my light makeup. I’m not sure if it would feel a bit heavy under a thick foundation though. It is super gentle on sensitive skin. I have not had one zit since I have used this and I do normally get the old one or two. It smells kind of like an earthy, nutty oat smell. I am used to light, fresh fragrances and wasn’t over keen on this at first, however I soon got used to it and the smell wears off really fast. The bottle feels well made and the lid is easy to open and close, even with damp hands from the shower. Once you get past the odd smell, I really think the benefits of this moisturiser outweigh that, and for that reason this one gets a thumbs up from me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product Lovely cream that helps rebalance the skin on the face. I have used it for a while and my skin feels and looks a lot better. A little goes a long way. Used for daytime it allowed me to moisturise dry areas without being greasy.

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
