I have sensitive skin – skin that is sensitive to fragrances, dyes and petroleum based products. I can’t have artificial fingernails and my hair dresser has to color my hair very carefully because I develop flu like symptoms that last for days. So, when the Made From Earth skincare company approached me about reviewing some products from their line of organic skincare essentials I was both interested and concerned at the same time.
1. Green Tea Toxin Cleanser – The Aloe Vera base in the cleanser combines with Green Tea to provide an antioxidant boost to remove free radicals restoring healthier skin. This product does not contain the typical surfactant or detergent ingredient that most cleansing gels contain; it is a chemical-free gentle cleanser. In my opinion, this cleanser will become your skin’s best friend, especially in the summer. If you just happen to get a sunburn, use this. The Green Tea will help pull out the redness and the Aloe Vera will help soothe the burn. It has a very creamy consistency, which feels wonderful on overworked skin. I just so happened to get awful sunburn on my nose and cheeks over the weekend and after using this for about 3 days, I could tell a major difference in my skin. The sunburn was almost gone, and it had pulled out almost all of the redness.
2. Rosehip and Hibiscus Facial Serum – Rose hips are a rich source of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids and Vitamin C. The serum’s ingredients play a primary role in the regeneration process of skin cells and repair of damaged tissues. Hibiscus extract, with its antioxidant properties, blends perfectly with the Rosehip Oil and provides natural astringent properties. Again, all of you with sensitive skin, this product is perfect for you. This serum in particular, is very gentle , and it helps to repair damaged tissues and cells. It absorbs in about 5 minutes, which allows you to apply your moisturizer even quicker.
How I like to use it: After I shower or wash my face, I pump a small amount in my hands. I like to pat or press it onto my skin rather than rub , this will allow it to penetrate the skin more efficiently. I wait 4-5 minutes for it to absorb and then apply my daily moisturizer.
3. Lip Balm – Taking care of your lips is so important all year long. I have tried countless lip balms, but I really love this one. My favorite flavor would have to be Blueberry, it smells like muffins , and isn’t overpowering. Made From Earth, has created 6 flavors total, so all you have to do is pick your favorite! The flavors include: Blueberry, Citrus (also fabulous), Ice Cream, Mocha, Spearmint, and Vanilla. These are perfect for throwing in your bag to use throughout the day. The chemical free lip balm contains vitamin-rich sunflower seed oil and protecting beeswax. Also, not only is the lip balm flavored with a scent, but each one is almost personalized to its name. For example, with the Blueberry flavor, it is designed to heal your lips, with help from antioxidants in blueberries. The Citrus flavor, contains high amounts of Vitamin C to help detoxify lips and heal.
