Made From Earth Review


As most of you may know or not know, I am a huge fan of beauty and skincare products that use all natural / organic ingredients, as well as being eco-friendly. 

If you have not heard of Made From Earth, well now you will. Made From Earth  carries a line of organic skin care essentials that contain the highest possible levels of organic ingredients and fruits. 

They pick their manufacturers very meticulously and all their manufacturers has to provide a certificate of organic certification from the USDA that concerns their processes & ingredients. By doing so, Made From Earth only gets the best of the best that mother nature can offer. 

Another thing that I love about this particular company is that they are not only vegan but they also go against animal testing, which makes their whole brand a cruelty free brand. They also have various campaigns that they support such as "The Campaign For Safe Cosmetics" which makes the effort of protecting their consumers by securing the reforms of eliminating dangerous chemicals from cosmetics and personal care products. 

Anyways, Made From Earth was kind enough to send a few full sized items as well as a couple of sample sized items for me to try & review. 

CLEANSER:

Description: 
Hypoallergenic, non-irritating cleanser to reveal a fresher layer.

Pros:
-Green Tea contains an anti-inflammatory agent that removes free radicals. (great for sensitive &/or acne prone skin types)
-It is a very mild cleaner with a faint scent of a "lotion-y" type. 
-Makes my skin feel more supple & dewy.

Cons:
-The packaging could have been a little better
-The consistency of the cleanser is just like of a body lotion & it feels like I'm putting lotion on my damp face. (which isn't too pleasant) 
-It sort of leaves an "oily" residue on your face

Overall:
♥♥♥♥♥

SCRUB:

Description: 
Detoxifying face cleanser with rooibos tea and gentle jojoba beads

Pros:
-It is a perfect scrub for those who have sensitive skin because the beads are not as rough textured.
-The smell is very faint but it has that earthy- all natural ingredient smell, which I quite like
-It is also a great gentle exfoliator, especially on cold winter days when your face gets dry & chapped.

Cons:
-I wish the packaging wasn't in a jar (for hygienic purposes) 
-Has that "oily" residue / non-squeeky clean feel

Overall:
♥♥♥♥

MOISTURIZER:

Description: 
Best use for anti-aging & renewal

Pros:
-It is a very light moisturizer
-Makes my skin feel very soft the next morning
-Keeps my face well moisturized
-Makes my face feel more plump & less dehydrated

Cons:
-Packaging (I wish it was in a bottle that had a pump instead of a jar)
-The scent is quite overwhelming (so it would be best used at night)
-Takes a few mins to sink in.

Overall:
♥♥♥♥

LOTION:

Description:
Holistic body lotion for sensitive skin. Heals, soothes and protects with organic honey

Pros:
-Keeps my skin well moisturized in this cold Winter season. (say no to alligator skin)
-Skin absorbs it at a fair amount of time
-I love the smell. It smells like honey with a hint of citrus
-It has a light-runny consistency

Cons: 
-None

Overall:
♥♥♥♥

LIP BALM:

Description:

Pros:
-Gives my lips the right amount of moisture
-Smells fantastic!!!

-Non-glossy

Cons:
None

Overall:
♥♥♥♥
