AD Liz Earle Skin Boost Tonic : The Original is BACK!

Liz Earle instant boost skin tonic changed formula

Liz Earle do some cult classic skincare products with the Instant Boost Skin Tonic definitely being one of them. It’s an aromatic, soothing and refreshing tonic that preps your skin perfectly. It’s won countless awards, and it has a huge fanbase. They re-jigged the formula around last year and  brought out an updated version : which was met with a bit of panic and mutterings from the Liz Earle superfans. I have used both and honestly I liked both but I can see why the people wanted the OG back!…if it ain’t broke and all that.

I love it when a brand listens to it’s customers and this is exactly what has happened with the Liz Earle Skin Boost Tonic. The brand took on board the feedback, listened, learnt and did the unexpected…re-launched the old version! I think this is so commendable of Liz Earle and it’s actually very rare for a brand to do a u-turn like this. Hats off to them!

What is the difference between the old and new Liz Earle Skin Boost Tonic?

The packaging. So the original was in a classic rectangular bottle and it had a twist up cap to dispense the tonic. The newer version was a cylinder-type bottle with a pop off cap. I think the twist-up is just more easy and convenient plus I personally find it dispenses the tonic a little better so there is less waste! They were/are both 200ml in size so you don’t lose any product.

The formula was also changed a little to try and upgrade it and improve it slightly : not a huge amount, but enough for the loyal Liz Earle fans to take note and want the OG back!

Liz Earle Skin Boost Tonic.

This is probably the first high-end toner/ tonic product that I ever used! (their Cleanse & Polish was also the first *proper* cleanser I ever tried!). It’s a really soothing, brightening and refreshing tonic. It’s alcohol-free and super hydrating and soothing and suitable for all skin types.

The Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic replenishes your skin with soothing hydration to prep for your daily skincare routine.

Powered by ingredients expertly selected for their efficacy, the tonic contains aloe vera to hydrate, calendula, chamomile and cucumber to soothe and refresh, plus antioxidant vitamin E. It is also fragranced with an uplifting blend of pure essential oils, including rose-scented geranium, lavender and sweet orange. It is honestly such a lovely scent and really gives you a nice, aromatic and uplifting boost when you sweep it over your skin. I love it as part of my morning routine as not only does it feel nice but it has that proper feel-good-factor too.


Who Can Use the Liz Earle Skin Boost Tonic?

Literally anybody. It’s suitable for ALL skin types and can slot into any routine pretty easily. I used it in my professional makeup kit for many years and used it to prep so many clients before skincare and makeup. It’s so good for makeup artists when you need to re-prep skin and your clients want to feel refreshed.

How to use the Liz Earle Skin Boost Tonic:

After cleansing:

  1. Twist up cap.
  2. Pour a generous amount onto the cotton wool pads.
  3. Sweep over your face and neck
  4. Continue with your skincare routine

You can also use it in a few others ways : 

1.) Saturate your cotton pads in the tonic and layer them onto your face to create an at-home face mask-type-scenario. Perfect for these warmer days when you need a cooling and soothing treat on your skin!

2.) Put some tonic into a travel spray bottle for on-the-go cooling refreshing and hydration. A true handbag hero.
