Skincare Review: Made From Earth

skincare reviewWhat do you envision when you hear the word, “earth?” I see beautiful trees, flowers, herbs, and natural elements. We absorb the earth’s healing energy when we connect with the earth and this is something missing in many people’s life. What is a way you can reconnect with “Mother Earth?” through your beauty routine! Don’t worry…I’m gonna tell you….

I recently discovered Made From Earth. Made From Earth products are organic, holistic, and healthy. Their products use pure ingredients from the earth to help renew the skin and slow down the effects of aging. Their products are also USDA organic. What you will NOT find in the Made From Earth line: petrochemicals, phthalates, parabens, sulfates, and fragrance.  The Made From Earth line includes organic body lotions, organic face creams, and organic lip balms. It’s wonderful to find another eco-conscious beauty brand providing safer alternatives to consumers.

Now on to my skincare review….I sampled  6 products from the Made From Earth line.

Skincare Review: Vitamin Enhanced Products

Vitamin Enhanced Moisturizer

Vitamins are so healthy for the skin and Made From Earth has integrated some of the most beneficial vitamins into this fabulous moisturizer. Antioxidants and bioflavanoids help fight free radical damage (the major enemy of the skin!) I used it every morning and my face was soft and moisturized. I found that just a little dab was enough to moisturize my entire face. It is a bit pricey at $74.99 for 2 oz., but remember you only have to use a little bit so it should last you a while. The ingredients are incredibly therapeutic:

Ingredients:
Organic Aloe Vera Juice, Avocado Oil, Organic Rooibos Tea Extract, Organic Jojoba, Emulsifying Wax NF, Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Vitamin E, Vitamin C Ester, Pro-Vitamin B5, Xanthan Gum, Vitamin A, Willowbark Extract, Rosemary.

Vitamin Enhanced Face Firming Serum

This rich serum has anti-aging properties most beneficial for aging and extra dry skin. The main ingredient is DMAE, which has been shown in clinical tests to actually firm and tighten skin! I didn’t use this as much as I did the moisturizer but the few times I did, I felt it working. It’s more reasonable priced at $39.99 so if face firming is your need, I’d go for this product before the moisturizer. Check out the contents:

Ingredients:
Rose Distillate, Aloe Vera Juice, Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE), Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Organic Bilberry Extract, Organic Sugar Cane Extract, Organic Sugar Maple Extract, Organic Orange Fruit Extract, Organic Lemon Extract, Organic Cranberry Extract, Vitamin E, Vitamin C Ester, CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10), Beta Carotene (Pro Vitamin A), Retinol Palmitate (Vitamin A), Alpha Lipoic Acid DL- Thioctic Acid, d-Calcium Pantothenate (Panthenol Vitamin B5), Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), Carrot Oil, Milk, Polysaccharide gum.

 


 

 

Skincare Review: Night Cream and Facial Treatments

Olive is so nourishing for the skin.

Olive Night Cream

This rich moisturizer is designed for dry and mature skin. Even though my skin doesn’t really meet either criteria, I still enjoyed this night cream. I love the fact that Made From Earth makes different moisturizers for day and night. The skin has different needs at different times of day. Olives are so beneficial for the skin, imparting antioxidants and vitamins which renew and repair skin from daily environmental pollutants. Olive products stimulate cells and  return skin to a firmer, healthier state as you sleep. This night cream contains both olive oil and olive butter. I used this before going to bed and it hydrated my skin perfectly.  It’s now on sale for $27.00 (normally sells for $39.99) for 2oz.

Ingredients:
Aloe barbadensis (Organic Aloe) Juice, Olea europaea (Organic Olive) Oil, Emulsifying Wax NF, Olea europaea (Olive) Butter, Palm Stearic Acid, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Azadirachta indica (Neem) Oil, Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary) Oleoresin, Tetrasodium EDTA, Citric Acid.

Pure Aloe Face Treatment

I adore aloe as a skin treatment and Made From Earth has tapped into the healing powers of aloe with this product. This is a potent and pure treatment and should only be used 2-3 times per week. It combats the daily effects of sun damage and moisturizes the skin intensely. It also provides enzymes and vitamins to further heal the skin. It’s affordably priced at $22.99 for 2 oz.

Ingredients:
Organic Aloe Vera Juice, Organic Rooibos Tea Extract, Emulsifying Wax NF, Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Organic Olive Oil, Palm Stearic Acid, Organic Jojoba Oil, Avocado, Witch Hazel, Vitamin E, Black Willowbark Extract, Rosemary Oleoresin, Neem Oil.

Lip Balm

This is the product which I used the most. I am always applying lip balm, especially before I put lipstick or lip gloss on. It just provides a nice base. The lip balms I used were the Blueberry and the Spearmint. My fave was the Spearmint! The lip balm really glides on smoothly and leaves your lips very soft and moisturized. Sometimes, I didn’t even need to use anything else but the balm. Other lip balm flavors include Citrus, Mocha, and Vanilla. Yum! The best part about these organic lip balms is that if you lick your lips, you’re not ingesting anything toxic. They are only $4.99 each. The ingredients are sourced from….yes, you guessed it, the earth! Peep the nourishing ingredients:

Ingredients:
Organic Sun flower Oil, Organic Beeswax, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Spearmint Essential Oil, Vitamin E, Rosemary Extract, Organic Calendula.

    Hi Robin,

    I found this site by googling another site and read what a woman posted regarding Made From Earth vitamin enhanced face firming serum which she used for 6 months; how it firmed her skin so well she stopped using it after the 6 month period.

    I am a 67 years young African American female and I don’t have wrinkles(well I do but they are very, very faint) but my face has sagged and I also have melasma. I am using a cream for the melasma which I put on during the day along with a sunscreen.

    My question: can I use this serum at night only and still get results or is it used in the daytime? If so, can I use it over my melasma cream?

    Thanks for your answer.

    Hi Joann,

    Thanks for visiting my blog! I always welcome a new reader. I think most serums are designed to be used at night, simply for the fact that the nighttime is when our bodies do it’s healing. It shouldn’t interfere with your other cream if you use the serum at night. I hope it works very well for you.

    As much as I hate it to be a party-pooper, most of the products that are being sold are repackaged products of Essential Wholesale. True, that the company sells wholesale stuff, but the price differences are just outrageous, I prefer to buy directly from EW. The only problem is their shipping fee to Europe. And I couldn’t find anyone to share or forward the shipping. :(
