Liz Earle Face Mask Review: CICA Restore Skin Paste

Liz Earle Face Mask Review: CICA Restore Skin Paste

Hello friends, today I want to do a Liz Earle Face Mask Review and chat about the iconic CICA Restore Skin Paste. This is one of my current favourite products and I’m SO excited to get into it with you! I have been loving Liz Earle Skincare throughout my pregnancy and beyond, in particular the new Liz Earle Probiotics range, because my skin has been so dry and sensitive, so now I’m super excited to review another product from the brand! OK! Let’s go!

My Postpartum Skin

Before we get started, I wanted to explain where my skin is right now. We had a baby 8 weeks ago, so I don’t have a huge amount of time for beauty treatments – or even showers! So I am very much keeping things simple right now. My skin is naturally dry and needs fairly intense skincare, especially in the winter. However, it is even dryer than normal right now, maybe it’s a postpartum thing, maybe it’s all the central heating, but either way. It needs a little extra help and I need to do it with minimal effort.

As I mentioned, during my pregnancy my skin was dry and easily irritated, so I fell in love with the Liz Earle Probiotics range, so much so, that I’m still using it and loving it now. It’s a great range and the CICA paste is a brilliant addition to my skincare routine.

Key Ingredients


Renowned by herbalists for centuries for its restorative properties, legend tells that Madagascan tigers would be seen rolling around in this herb to heal their wounds.

Sustainably extracted from a by-product of the fruit juice industry, this oil has excellent emollient properties, helping to comfort and smooth the skin.


Collected only from fruits that have naturally fallen to the ground, this oil is rich in essential fatty acids, plus ximenynic acid to soothe and soften the skin.

Liz Earle CICA Restore Skin Paste Mask Review

I guess there’s only one thing left to do, and that’s give you my Liz Earle Face Mask Review! I have been using this face mask every other night for the past eight weeks. I have been using it alongside the Liz Earle Probiotic cleanser, face cream and night cream.

The first thing I noticed was that the mask is that instead of it feeling like a heavy paste, it’s more like a medium-thick cream with a slight mousse effect to it. I use a double-pea size amount and it covers the skin nicely and has a really easy creamy texture when you apply it, no dragging and it doesn’t feel too heavy, nor too light. Finally, it’s worth noting, this product is fragrance free, which is perfect for those who are sensitive to fragrance in skincare.

I’ve been a fan of the Liz Earle brand for years and for some reason, this is the first time I’ve come across this product. I’m honestly shocked it’s not spoken about more! I honestly do not have a single complaint about this overnight mask… it’s brilliant! It’s super hydrating, super nourishing, comfortable, gives long lasting hydration and considering I have been using it every other night for around 2 months, I can’t believe how much is left in the tube. For the price, it’s incredible and 100% worth the investment. Also, when brands say ’48 hour hydration’, I usually roll my eyes, but this mask truly does give a really deep, intense, long lasting hydration. It’s incredible and manages to keep my skin hydrated through the day and night, which is impressive as we have the heating on a LOT for the baby and normally I would have to reapply face cream throughout the day, but with this mask, I don’t.

If you have dry and dehydrated skin and you want a super effective product which will get you through the winter months, then I can’t recommend it enough! It’s truly brilliant and perfect for dry and sensitive skins. As for the way my skin looks from it, I would say pretty good! Postpartum skin is notoriously troublesome and I’m feeling like mine is pretty good (let’s not talk about the dark circles though!) and I’ve even had some kind comments on my instagram stories saying that my skin is glowing. I’m pretty sure it’s not glowing because of the lack of sleep, I can only credit Liz Earle – both this mask and the Probiotics range in general! Honestly, I love this mask!!
