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 5 out of 5 by from Silky smooth I wish this cream had been around years ago! I have extremely dry sensitive skin and have suffered with eczema for lots of years. After having used only half a tub of this cream my skin is much improved. It’s less dry n much less itchy. I’ll certainly continue to use this cream and look forward to much smoother silky skin. It has a lively smell too!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the Same Instant Boost Skin Tonic used to be great & refreshing but there has been a change to an ingredient & now it leaves a sticky film on your face. Left me feeling disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sadly not the same Been using this product for over 25 years and this is sadly something I won't be using anymore. It's foamy/soapy and leaves my skin very dry.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the same formula! Not only have you changed the packaging, which is horrible, you’ve changed the formula. It used to smell divine and leave my skin refreshed and toned. It now has no aroma and leaves a soapy and sticky residue on my skin. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I’m now looking for a new toner. To say I’m shocked and disappointed, is an understatement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful and refreshing I have used this for several years along with the Clense and Polish It keeps my skin feeling fresh and healthy

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ruined a previously great product! I've been using the Skin Tonic for years and have always thought it was the best around. That is, until I bought the latest 'improved' version. What a total waste of money and massive disappointment. I actually took it back as I could only assume that it was defective as it feels like mildly soapy water instead of refreshing and invigorating as the original version did. Unfortunately I was told that this is how it now is. Well Liz Earle, you have now lost a previously very loyal customer. Why mess up a product that was working so well?!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Different formula!! Having been using for years and have noticed that the formula has changed!! It leaves a soapy/bubbly residual!! Does not smell as good as it use to!! Please change it back.

Can LE please be upfront, honest, and transparent about which product formulas have been changed! I am stuck with two 200ml bottles of this that irritate my skin, so much so that I cannot continue to use them! You have lost another loyal customer.

Asked by: RebeccaP
Hi there, thanks for getting in touch. We are very sorry to hear you have experienced skin sensitivity. All of our formulations are made to be as mild and gentle as possible and all products are assessed and approved by independent safety experts prior to placing them on the market. While our recent update to replace PEGs with plant-based alternatives is intended to make the formulation gentler for the majority of our customers, we are aware that every individual is different, and some people can react to ingredients that are gentle for most people, in the same way that some individuals have specific food intolerances. Please do email us at and let us know where you have purchased your products, if you still have your proof of purchase, and the batch code which can be found on the base, for example - U1234A. We look forward to hearing from you. - The Liz Earle Beauty Co. Team

Has your Skin Tonic Formula Changed ? No scent in my bottle at all

Asked by: Angela R
This is a disaster! It began with the superskin concentrate ( I now make my I own in an old rollerball I kept from an original bottle). LE have consistently said contents are unchanged, which is clearly untrue! If I were LE, I'd be ashamed to have my name attached to this now. IBST, Skin repair and superskin concentrate. What's next? I'll not be risking LE products again

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

Asked by: Charles
Hi, thanks for getting in touch! We can confirm that our Instant Boost Skin Tonic is a toner, and would be the next step after our Cleanse & Polish. I hope this information helps however, if you do require any further assistance, please reach out to our Customer Centre by calling 01983 813913 or email – The Liz Earle Beauty Co. Team
