Ok, so you may all be wondering if I’m still here, given that I haven’t posted in a while...sorry about that. I’m still here, and I have a great brand to tell you about!
Made from Earth is an American company that makes organic skincare products. Check them out at www.madefromearth.com . They kindly sent me some of their lovely products to try. The products I tried were: Rooibos Tea Facial Scrub Size: 2 oz (about 57g; I had a smaller sample size) Price: USD$24.99 Packaging: A plastic jar with a screw-on lid. The verdict: This is a nice gentle scrub containing key ingredients jojoba beads, aloe vera, and rooibos tea. It’s detoxifying without being harsh, and it smells good too.
Pure Aloe Vera Skin Treatment Size: 2 oz (I had a smaller sample size) Price: $14.99 Packaging: A plastic jar with a screw-on lid. The verdict: Soothing, moisturising, and non-greasy, containing healing ingredients including aloe vera, witch hazel, and neem . Great smell too. Very nice!
Rosehip + Hibiscus Facial Serum (pictured above) Size: 2 oz Price: USD$12.50 (Currently on sale from $24.99) Packaging: A plastic bottle with a pump-top, and lid. The verdict: This is nice and moisturising, without being greasy. Nice subtle smell. Contains hibiscus flower extract, rosehip seed oil, and glycerine, among other things. Love it! Blueberry Organic Lip Balm with Vitamin E Size: 0.15oz (4.25g) Price: USD$3.99 Packaging: A windup plastic tube with a lid. The verdict: This has a yummy but subtle taste and smell, and it’s very moisturising too, with sunflower and jojoba oils.
Citrus Fresh Organic Lip Balm with Vitamin E Size: 0.15oz (4.25g) Price: USD$3.99 Packaging: A windup plastic tube with a lid. The verdict: I really like citrus scents and tastes, so loved this. It’s like a glass of orange juice in a tube! A dry-lip quenching one, that is.
I really like that there are so many great natural and organic ingredients in these products. I think it is great how much aloe vera is used in the products – very good for sensitive skin! The packaging is also really pretty. Plus, it is a cruelty free brand, which is a must for me.
