|Intensive Nourishing Treatment||
Intensive Nourishing Treatment is an all-natural face mask by Liz Earle, out of England. Liz Earle products are often seen on QVC in Britain and are available through several chains of stores. In 2007, Liz Earle opened a fulfillment center in the US to be able to service the American market. The Intensive Nourishing Treatment is part of the Liz Earle Special Treatments line. The company also carries cleansers, toners, moisturizers and body care products.
All of the Liz Earle products, including the Intensive Nourishing Treatment, can be purchased on the official website. They offer a money-back guarantee that does not appear to have a time limit on it, something we always like to see.
The Intensive Nourishing Treatment claims to be calming, comforting and deeply rehydrating. The ingredients listed are borage oil, comfrey extract, geranium essential oil, glycerin, panthenol, shea butter, and St. John’s Wort oil. The purpose of most of these natural ingredients is to soothe and moisturize the skin, which plays a part in reducing the look of wrinkles. However, we prefer to use a product that contains hyaluronic acid if we are looking for effective moisturizers. Hyaluronic acid can hold over 1,000 times its own weight in water and has been clinically-proven to deeply hydrate the skin, which could be beneficial when it comes to preventing future wrinkles.
Keep in mind that sometimes even natural ingredients can trigger skin sensitivities and allergies. Those who have allergies may wish to exercise caution with this product if there are some ingredients to which you have not previously been exposed.
- Contains natural ingredients that may play a part in moisturizing skin.
- Available for purchase on the company’s website.
- May not contain ingredients that have a deep and long-lasting effect on the skin.
- Not labeled as non-allergenic.
- Expensive on a per-ounce basis.
- No product samples appear to be available.
The Bottom Line
While Liz Earle’s Intensive Nourishing Treatment may soften the upper layers of skin with its all-natural ingredients, it is unlikely to produce real rejuvenating results. If you are seeking a skin care products specifically to treat wrinkles, look for ones with clinically-proven ingredients like collagen, Matrixyl 3000 and Argiriline, all of which can produce a significant and long-lasting reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. If moisturizing the skin is your main goal, look for products that contain hyaluronic acid. If you do want to try the Intensive Nourishing Treatment and you have skin allergies, consult your dermatologist and review the list of ingredients with him or her. There are several highly-effective products on the market that are specifically labeled as non-allergenic and you may wish to investigate those before settling on this one.
