Liz Earle Line Smoothing Serum: Size Doesn't Matter

Monday, June 6, 2011

As the saying goes, size doesn't matter, it's how you use it. Now before you start thinking this is going to be an R-rated, post, I'm going to disappoint you by making this post all about skincare. I've always been a firm believer in the "you don't need to spend a lot to look good" theory, especially so when it comes to skincare. After all, it's really about knowing your skin, and what ingredients work for it, as opposed to chasing after brands or the lastest new thing. The Liz Earle Line Smoothing Serum is tiny, but it does work pretty well.

When I say tiny, I'm not kidding. The product comes in a teeny little box, and you get 10ml of product inside. Well, that's a pretty small amount, although I have seen serums in tubes as small as 15ml being sold as well. The good thing about this product is that unlike some other serums which come in jars, this one comes ssensibly-packed in a tiny plastic bottle with a pump top.

The serum itself is a clear, thick gel with a yellow-brownish tinge. Because the product is so thick, a little goes a long way. It also does take awhile to skin into the skin, so to me this feels more like a night-time use only product, but if you're planning to wear this under makeup, I'd recommend that you let it settle into the skin first.

The first thing you notice is that this product is very moisturizing. I also like that it doesn't contain any ingredients that tend to break me out. On my sensitive skin, a lot of plant oils actually break me out, so a brand heavy on the botanicals (like Liz Earle and a lot of other natural-skincare brands) can have products that are likely to break my skin out, since some plant oils can be clogging on sensitive skin. But this isn't one of them, and I rather enjoyed using it.

Although the Line Smoothing Serum is marketed as a line treatment product, prevention seems to be its strongest suit. I feel like using it has made my skin feel a lot more moisturized and a teensy bit plumper, which I guess counteracts the appearance of any lines (I'm not sure if any product actually helps lines to disappear, to be honest).

If you're looking for a good serum with moisturizing properties, this would definitely be worth a look at. And if you do get this, don't be scared by the small size. Remember, a little goes a long way with this baby.

  1. I have been looking for a good serum, so I am definitely going to try this out!!!

  2. @Celazome: I've been using it for ~3 weeks or so and it hasn't run out yet. But then again, I use just a pump for my eye area only. And sometimes I forget to use it (oops). So I'm not sure if you were to use more how long it would last. Hope this helps!
