Review & Giveaway: Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint SPF 15

Hey guys, so a few weeks ago I was running low on nearly all my skin care products, therefore I thought a little (I say little but I don't think my card would agree) trip to Liz Earle was in order :)
I just love walking into any Liz Earle store, the staff are always so friendly and helpful and it feels really fresh and luxurious. The products are such great quality and are really reasonably priced too. They do monthly offers which includes their legendary and award winning Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, Instant Boost Skin Tonic and your choice of moisturiser to suit your skin, all for only £43.00. To get a full facial routine with such good quality products for only £43.00 is amazing and such a great deal!!
This month they were doing this offer with a complimentary Sheer Skin Tint, which is like a tinted moisturiser/BB cream and worth £21.00, therefore I got all four of these products for £43.00.... what a bargain!! It was also great for me as I needed new skin care products and was on the look out for a tinted moisturiser/BB cream for my holiday which is coming up. As i'm going to Vegas and will be taking lots of photos in the daytime as well as the evening, I wanted something to wear on my skin during the day that had light coverage and that also had an SPF. I didn't want to look completely bare faced on camera, so I thought something like this would be perfect.
The Sheer Skin Tint is absolutely amazing!! It feels really lightweight and gives such a fresh, radiant and dewy finish to the skin which is perfect for holidays or for days when you don't want to wear a full face of make up. It evens out skin tone, hides redness and imperfections and overall makes your skin look naturally great and like your not wearing anything at all. Even my mum noticed the first day I wore it and told me that my skin looked great. This product comes in four colours, I have the colour Beige 02 which is neutral and suits ivory to medium complexions. Just a quick tip... the colour difference between Beige 02 and Beach 03 is very different. I found Beach 03 was very dark, so only go for this colour if you are quite tanned.

To celebrate my first 6 months of blogging, I thought I would do my first giveaway to give back to everyone that takes the time to read my blog. If you would like to be in with the chance of winning a Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint in the colour Beige 02 (Liz Earle's most popular colour), then all you need to do is sign in with the rafflecopter widget below and work your way through the entries.

Top 10 Skincare Tips

Being in the beauty industry, I get so many people asking me about skincare, therefore I thought I would do a post on my top 10 skincare tips :)

1. Avoid exfoliating products that contain sharp grains as they can scratch and damage the skin.

2. Always make sure your moisturiser or foundation contains an SPF to protect your skin from the harmful UV rays.

3. Drink plenty of water.

4. As we age, cell turnover slows down making the skin look dull and lackluster, therefore exfoliating is the best 'anti ageing' tip I can give you! This is because when we exfoliate we promote skin renewal, therefore we stimulate new cells to be pushed upwards towards the surface, and these are the healthy, plump cells we all want to see.

5. Always take your skincare products down onto the neck and decolletage.

6. Use your ring finger to apply eye products as you use less force and wont damage the delicate skin around your eye.

7. Use products that are formulated without any nasty ingredients. Natural ingredients are always better.

8. Always double cleanse in the evening. Once to remove make up and the second time to thoroughly cleanse the skin.  

9. Always wash your hands before starting your skin care routine to stop the spread of bacteria.

10. Try to cut down on caffeinated drinks, smoking, sun exposure and alcohol as these all dehydrate the skin, which leads to premature ageing. 

Linked below is a few blog posts about a few of my favourite products and other skincare tips...  

I hope you found this post helpful!! 
See you in my next post :)
