Review: Intensive Moisturiser from Elizabeth's Daughter

Back at the beginning of December, I started following Elizabeth’s Daughter on Twitter. I was contacted and ask if they could send me their Intensive Moisturiser and I accepted the offer. 


I only discovered the company because it popped up on my “Who to Follow” list so I checked out the website. I learnt that their products are 95% natural and free from parabens, SLS and petrochemicals. The concept behind the brand is unique. The idea is that Mothers and Daughters can share the products. 

Elizabeth (the founder) explained to me how the products came about - “I have had acne and rosacea for most of my life. About 6 years ago when my skin was really bad, I couldn't find products that suited my skin, most of the so-called natural products irritated my skin and as I also have a daughter I decided to produce my own range (I have a background in cosmetics and skincare).” The Intensive Moisturiser was developed for sensitive, irritated and dry skin. Elizabeth said that a number of her customers with psoriasis use the product. As someone prone to eczema this is always good to hear. 

There are some familiar ingredients in this cream – Apricot Kernel Oil, Mango Butter, Argan Oil, Coconut. There are others that are new to me – Sacha Inchi Oil, Tahitian Monoi and Kakadu Plum (which apparently is high in Vitamin C, equivalent to 10 Oranges). 

So what do I think? The moisturiser can be used on the face and body which is appealing, definitely helps cut down on an already overcrowded bathroom cabinet. Having a multipurpose cream is also ideal for those who travel regularly and want to save space in their luggage. The first thing that caught my attention is the fragrance, it is lovely and not like anything else I have been using. This is a heavy fragrance that lingers and I can see that it may not be to everyone’s liking. There are days when I wake up and my nose is feeling sensitive, I sneeze at my deodorant or make up, on those days I tend to avoid applying to my face because of the scent. 

Often creams developed for dry skins can be very heavy and take longer for the skin to absorb. I was surprised that this moisturiser has a light texture, sinking into my skin quickly and easily. It leaves skin feeling silky and soft. I have tested on my face and body and I have not had any problems with irritation or dry patches. I have mention before I have super hyper sensitive legs after shaving so this is the place where I put products through their paces. I am pleased to say it did not cause burning or redness. 

The moisturiser comes in a sturdy plastic pump bottle. So far I have not had any major issues with the pump. I find the amount dispensed from one pump is enough for the face and I find one or two pumps is sufficient per arm or leg. 

This really is a lovely cream which I will be recommending to friends and family (as well as you guys!). Definitely check out the website to learn more about the brand and to discover the rest of the range. I note that there is a Starter Set which would be an ideal way to try products. The Elizabeth's Daughter Intensive Moisturiser can be purchase direct from the website.

Let me know in the comment section below your thoughts on my review. Have you hear of or tried Elizabeth's Daughter products?

  1. Great post. I definitely feel your pain when it comes to moisturising after shaving!
    Now I'm back to being a student, £22 is probably a bit much for me. But this will definitely be on my radar for when I have money again! xx

  2. @Carrie I understand what you mean about price. Have you tried Brown Earth Shea Butter Body Cream? I have been using that for years it doesn't irritate my legs after shaving. You can purchase from Love Lula for £10.95 - 120ml. I also noticed they stock Shealife which I am sure is a sister company (£6.95 for 100g)

  3. I have always seen this brand but never tried it. Now I think I may... I try to go as natural as possible.

  4. @Many Stars - Ooh glad that I have tempted you, I believe skin appreciates a more natural approach, I certainly have noticed a difference over the years, let me know how you get on if you make a purchase!

  5. It sounds like a nice product, but I don't like strongly scented face creams. Great review though Sarah. I like finding out about new brands.

    1. This cream is suitable for face and body but I know what you mean about strong fragrances, for me it depends what mood I am in :-)
