Aloe Vera

(Aloe barbadensis)

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.


(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.


(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), Glycerin, Polyglyceryl-10-caprylate, Decyl glucoside, Aloe barbadensis (aloe vera) leaf juice, 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, Tocopherol (vitamin E), Dehydroacetic acid, Sodium hydroxide, Ethylhexylglycerin, Linalool, Limonene, Citronellol, Geraniol, Coumarin, Citric acid, Potassium sorbate, Glycine soja (soybean) oil.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not good I have just opened my new bottle of skin tonic, not only am I disappointed at the new bottle but what has happened to my absolute favourite go to product, I have used Liz Earle products from the very first launch and have always loved instant boost skin tonic, but on using it this morning it left a uncomfortable tingly dried out feeling on my skin I cannot believe the formula has been changed I didn’t even get that lovely botanical smell that has always made me feel good. Please team listen to your loyal customers and go back to the original product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why change a brilliant product? I absolutely loved the old formula. The new one leaves my skin feeling sticky and really dried out. Please, please, please change it back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor substitute for original formula I have been using this product for many years but on my recent order noticed that the bottle had changed. Sadly the product inside is unrecognisable to the original. The lovely fragrance has gone and the product foams and leaves my skin feeling sticky rather than clean and fresh. Will not be buying this again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New instant skin tonic Bought the new skin tonic . Can’t believe they have changed this. I’ve used this for a week and it seems to be drying my skin. I have really sensitive skin and have used Liz Earle products for years and now find I cannot now use the new moisturiser and now the skin tonic. Really,really disappointed that they are changing the 3 basic products.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing I have been using liz Earle products for many years, but I am very disappointed with the changes to this product. I agree with the other disappointed customers, feels soapy not as refreshing and leaves face feeling sticky. I won’t be purchasing any more, and if other revamped products are also disappointing, I will try other manufacturers products, that have ethical and sustainability standards similar to The Liz Earle range.

Is this a toner or a micellar water? I'm confused by the presence of a surfectant (decyl glucoside).

The 50ml new look bottle states underneath, ‘new look, same product’, however I have one of the new look bottles in the 200ml size and comparing the ingredients with the old bottle there are clearly 2 new added ingredients listed 3rd and 4th. Not as good.

Asked by: Angi
Hello Thank you for your enquiry. At Liz Earle Beauty, we stay at the forefront of botanical skincare science, so we can continue to bring you the very best solutions from nature. With that in mind we’re proud to announce that we have replaced the synthetic PEGs in our Instant Boost™ Skin Tonic with gentler, certified sustainable plant-based alternatives. We understand that increasingly customers want to use only the most gentle, naturally derived ingredients on their skin. Recently, the safety of PEGs (polyethylene glycol) has come under scrutiny. This is less to do with the PEGs themselves and more to do with the potentially problematic impurities that can be created as by-products when they are synthesised. While many suppliers have updated their processes to eliminate these risks, many customers prefer to avoid PEGs altogether. Please be assured that although we have replaced this synthetic ingredient, the naturally active ingredients within our Instant Boost Skin Tonic remain unchanged, and are included at the same levels as they were previously, so you can continue to expect the same efficacy and great benefits from this product. We hope this helps but please do not hesitate to call our Customer Centre on 0800 413318 if we can be of any further assistance.
