Or didn’t they? I’m confused.
I checked the Liz Earle website yesterday and read some of the latest reviews of the new, ‘new and improved’ formula and it looks like Liz Earle may have reverted back to the old Sheer Skin Tint formulation. Is it too much to hope for?
The words ‘glow’ and ‘dewy’ make my blood run cold, but could they have really listened to feedback from consumers?
The original Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint was perfection – until they messed around and ‘improved’ it.
I left an online message:
Have you changed the Sheer Skin Tint formula back to the original? I used it many years ago and when I bought it again a couple of years ago, it was runny and the colour had changed. I have swatches to prove it.
I don’t want to waste another £50 (I buy the lightest and the medium and mix them). So can I buy samples?
I received this swift reply:
I can confirm that we re-launched our Sheer Skin Tint back in 2017 but no further changes have been made since then.¹
The formula used is now enhanced with skincare benefits to visibly smooth, brighten and hydrate, leaving your skin looking revitalised.
The formulation also has a new base, which behaves in a slightly different way to the original formula. The new shades are now less orange toned and more in line with skin tone.²
Although the new formulation has been matched as closely as possible to the original, the different bases might show a slight colour difference when being compared on the skin.
Unfortunately, we do not have any samples available of this product, (oh boo!) however, we do have a very generous returns policy which can be found here https://uk.lizearle.com/content/returns-and-refunds.³
I do hope this information helps – Jo.
¹So what is this ‘new and improved’ formula the reviewers above are talking about then? They seem to think it’s been changed.
²New base, new shades? So it HAS been reformulated then, or are you talking about the old new skin tint?
³This however, is good news. I can order both shades (and swatch them for here) and return them for a full refund if they’re not right.
You can see how confusing it is though?
Liz Earle has discontinued its makeup line apart from Sheer Skin Tint – but is that going to follow soon? It’s a shame because their matte bronzer and cream cheek colour products were exceptional.
Below are swatches of the original and the new (and improved) 2017 formula.
I’m going to order Bare 01 and Beige 02.

LIZ EARLE CLEANSE & POLISH HOT CLOTH CLEANSER
I’ve forgiven Liz Earle for altering their famous cleanser (read my post on why they had to change the formula here). I’ve got used to it though. It works as well as it ever did and is still the only cleanser I can work right into my lashes to remove waterproof mascara without any irritation.
But, it is a hefty £27.00 for a 200ml tube, so I still ‘stretch’ it (ie using Liz Earle C&P only on my eyes) with nspa’s excellent and eerily similar, Hot Cloth Polish Luminous Glow on the rest of my face. There are a lot of cream cleansers on the market, but the nspa version still does the job.
This used to be called plain old nspa Hot Cloth Polish and was sold in ASDA for £7.00 for TWO bottles.
ASDA no longer stock it (although they stock other products from the nspa range) so I’ve found a new supplier called Spa at Home. It’s now £7.00 for ONE bottle, but it’s still great value. The new Luminous Glow formula is not much different, it just smells a little more fragrant.
I’m ordering my two Skin Tints today!
