If you have oily acne prone skin, use ointments/medicated products on daily basis to combat the acne, prefer less chemical/more natural ingredients based stuff and live in a hot humid weather; then at some point of time you might have wondered how to moisturise your skin without turning it into a grease ball and loading it with more chemicals/ingredients that need to be searched if they could cause trouble to your skin....at least I have! and the answer I have got after trying a number of products is "LIZ EARLE INSTANT BOOST SKIN TONIC SPRITZER".
The tonic comes in a large plastic bottle which holds enough product to last you ages, since only two-three spritzes are required for one time application. I usually use it thrice a day; every time after I wash my face. The consistency is watery and once applied, feels a bit sticky to the skin for like 10-20 seconds but after that you don't feel like you have anything on your face. It has a mild pleasant fragrance, something like "Quice icecream syrup" (those who hail from Pakistan would know what I am talking about haha).
The bottle comes with a spray nozzle and a tight cap so there is no fear of spillage. Since it holds 200 ml of the product, some might find it not so travel friendly due to its weight. (it is also available in 30 ml bottle)
The organic active ingredients along with the combination of essential oils sure do their magic! I have been using it for almost 4-5 months now and I can vouch for this product to be suitable for oily acne prone skin in hot and humid weather of a city like Karachi. As soon as I apply it, my skin feels soft and moisturised, without being oily or anything. Over the course of its usage, I can say that my skin does feel hydrated and even toned (keeping my regime of other products constant). As you may recall, I loved my Boot's Essential Cucumber Moisturising Cream during the winter days, I still use it sometimes at night, but in this humid weather, I find this tonic to be the best toner/moisturiser combo for my skin!
[since I have to apply ointments like benzoyl peroxide on certain nights (which is quite drying), its best to apply a thin layer of moisturiser like this tonic rather than some heavy one, for easy absorption of the ointment/medication.]
Overall, I have a very good experience with this product: nothing fancy shmancy, just a light-weight organic ingredient based toner cum moisturiser which soothes my skin and never has it caused any breakouts or other problem....
Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer is available at Liz Earle website (200 ml spritzer for £14.75). Sadly, it is not available in Pakistan, but I believe a number of facebook pages take order for international brands and you can get it from them.
