(Almost) Organic Wednesday Liz Earle + Giveaway!

By Get Lippie

Giveaway is now closed, thank you lovelies!

When I’m asked about handcream, I very rarely have to stop and think, I simply say “Liz Earle Hand Repair”, because I truly believe it’s one of the best handcreams I’ve ever tried.  It smells divine, sinks in easily, doesn’t leave a greasy residue (it leaves them matte, the first handcream I ever tried that did that!), and it leaves your hands soft and moisturised for hours on end.  I may flirt with other creams whose scent I admire, but it’s safe to say that in the handcream race Liz Earle has won my gold medal.

I’m a big fan of the Liz Earle brand, and have been ever since it debuted on QVC back in the mid-90s.  In fact, I think my second ever purchase from QVC was a Liz Earle tester set, and I’ve liked the brand ever since! Their commitment to  natural ingredients (though they don’t claim to be certified organic), alongside a female-friendly profile – Liz is a wonderful spokesperson for the brand –  and a desire to keep luxury affordable, are things I always admire. 

After I wrote a little feature the other day about my dry skin tips (in response to a reader request) the company got in touch and offered to give one of my readers a set of their Superskin goodies!  Perfect for treating  dry, and flaky skin in winter time, the kit includes:

  • Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser 30ml
  • Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer 30ml
  • Superskin Moisturiser 15ml
  • Superskin Concentrate 2ml
  • Sample size of new Superskin Eye & Lip Treatment
  • 1 pure muslin cloth
  • Zip-up kit bag

OR, if you’re not suffering from dry skin at the moment, don’t worry, Liz Earle is offering a bottle of her brand new fragrance instead: Botanical Essence No.1 which is 98% natural, and contains (amongst other things) lavender, patchouli, rose and bergamot which sounds perfectly divine!

Now, because I’m hosting this giveaway, and because I’m a helpless over-sharer, I’ll be adding a couple of prizes too, plus I will personally be providing the second prize.  I’m off to IMATS the weekend of 30th/31st January, and I’ll pick up some mystery gifts for the lucky winners while I’m there.  They’ll have to remain a mystery for now, as, well … I haven’t bought them yet!  Companies exhibiting at IMATS include Ilamasqua, OCC, Crown Brush … who knows what’ll be in the bags?
