Review: Made From Earth

10:49:00 PM

A few weeks ago I received a package with a relaxing aromatherapy scent peeking out from the box. The package is from a company called Made From Earth, who specialized in organic, holistic, and chemical free body care products at the best prices.

Organic Aloe Vera, Chemical-Free Jojoba, Organic Lavender, Organic Honey, and Organic Green Tea as well as Organic Rosehips are among their natural ingredients. Doesn't it sounds good for your skin? Now, let's take a peek inside the package that I received, shall we?


When they first asked me if I have some items that I might be interested to try from their website, I chose the Lavender Calm Lotion with Jojoba (because I have insomnia and lavender is known to aid sleeping problems), and also the Peppermint Parsley Natural Soap Bar (because I'm a sucker for natural soap bars!). But I was surprised that they sent me more than those two products! Along with the two items I asked them above, I was also sent a few items from their line :

Lavender Calm Body Lotion
Peppermint Parsley Natural Soap Bar
Rosehip + Hibiscus Organic Face Serum
Citrus Fresh Organic Lip Balm
Vanilla Organic Lip Balm



My Review:
Now let's talk about the sweet smelling item that makes this package smells awesome from the outside (even before I opened the box!). It is the Peppermint Parsley Natural Soap Bar! The soap is handmade fresh with USDA Certified Organic ingredients for a high quality bath/shower experience. And oh my, how me + hubby love it!


This soap bar has a very calming spa-like scent even when you haven't opened it yet! The scent is very delightful, it makes you think you're in a Spa. First of all, I chose the Peppermint Parsley because me and hubby loved anything minty. So it's just natural that I chose to review this soap. This chemical-free soap has a soothing yet invigorating scent of peppermint which is so refreshing, when you use it in the shower you'll feel the luxury right away. The soap didn't leave any greasy residue, it smells wonderful, it ignite your senses, and the parsley is good for cooling down your skin while gently cleansing it. Truthfully, there is no way to not like this soap :D

I love natural soap bars because they are much more healthier for our skin, they usually don't leave any residue, and they have the most invigorating scents! Nothing can beat the scents from natural soaps. Your bathroom will practically smells good right after you showered ;) If you haven't tried natural soaps, I really recommend you try it!

 
For $4.50 per bar, this soap is quite big as you can see from the photo above. Usually natural soap bars mostly have medium small size, but Made From Earth soap bars are medium big, as you can see above.

Aside from this refreshing Peppermint Parsley, Made From Earth also have other delightful scents of soap bars such as Citrus Lavender, Lemongrass Tea, Oatmeal Spice, and Patchouli Herb. All those names makes you want to try every single one of them, don't you? ;p


Now, let's move on to the Body Lotion. On the website it says that this Lavender Calm Body Lotion is recommended to use at night for relaxation and a calming effect. So being the hardcore insomnia that I am, after trying it for a few weeks I found it does help me to relax and unwind and help me calmed down at bed time. I still got insomnia though because as I told you, my insomn is hardcore version. But I do find the relaxing effect really helpful, and I could feel my body relaxes itself just right after I put on the Lavender Lotion. So I'd say it does work in calming your body and senses.


Aside from the Organic Lavender, this Body Lotion also have Aloe Vera, Coconut Oil, Jojoba Nut and Witch Hazel as ingredients of this lotion. The lavender itself helps relieve tension, disinfect scalp and skin, and enhance blood circulation. While the added organic ingredients also helps as anti-bacteria, protects from free-radicals, and adding some deep moisturizing to the skin.


My only Peeps is I would suggest a different container for the lotion because the consistency of the lotion is quite thick, so this type of bottle makes it harder to squeeze the lotion out, especially when your hands are already slippery from the first application, so if you want to put on more lotion to different areas it would need some extra efforts to squeeze the lotion out again. I would suggest a pump bottle or a simple tub / jar for this type of lotion to make it easier to use though.

The lotion is full with rich ingredients in it so it might feels a little thick when you first applied it to your skin, but the skin will absorbs it completely, and no greasy residue at the skin surface (as you can see above). It is $14.00 for 8oz bottle at the website, and it's suitable for all skin types.


Next is the Organic Lip Balms. I was sent the Citrus Fresh and the Organic Vanilla. These lip balms are made from chemical-free nut extracts and moisturizing organic vegetable oils to soften and moisturize lips. Made From Earth lip balms contain vitamin-rich sunflower seed oil and protecting beeswax to avoid chapped lips and to keep lips moisturized. 


I like the lip balms and has been using the Vanilla one for a few weeks now. The scents and flavors are subtle, but both are really great for the lips. Because I'm not a fan of citrus so I couldn't really say about the flavor (the website says the Citrus Fresh tastes like a delicious mix of lemons, limes and fresh squeezed oranges), but the texture of the balm is as good as the Vanilla one. The added Vitamin E gave the moisturizing feeling to the lips, it doesn't feel "thick" in your lips like some other lip balms does.  

I applied it day and night to keep my lips moisturized and far from chapped. When I applied it at night just before bed time, I wouldn't find any residue on my lips in the morning like I always have when I use other lip balm (my bedroom is air-conditioned at night so sometimes it makes my lips dry upon waking up, and therefore I always use lipbalm before bedtime).

The lip balms is $3.99 each, and it also comes in the flavors of Blueberry, and Spearmint. Oh and the packaging looks exclusive, I love it :)


Last but not least, the Rosehip + Hibiscus Organic Face Serum. I actually really like this serum. I have just realized that my skin is starting to need some serious treatments, and I read that serum is "A Must" these days, and it should be added to our daily routine facial care of "clean+tone+moisturize". 

Serum is to be used after cleansing your face (after toner) and before moisturizer (or night cream). Serum can penetrate deeply into your skin layers, allowing them to give you more beneficial effects than when using a moisturizer alone. 
This Rosehip + Hibiscus organic face serum has the benefits of rosehip oil and hibiscus extract. The rose hips are a rich source of omega-3, omega-6 fatty acids, and Vitamin C. It has a primary role in regeneration process of skin cells and the repairing process of damaged tissues. While Hibiscus extract has anti-oxidant properties, and also rich in AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) and Amino Acids that provides a tightening effect to the skin without stripping the natural oils of the skin. 

This serum helps reduce the appearance of scars and fine lines as well as restoring the skin's moisture balance. It also helps to tone and balance the skins delicate pH, and provides moisturizing benefits, and helps to boost the works of moisturizer. 


The texture of the serum is thick and liquid-y, but it absorbs rather quickly to the skin. In the bottle it says to wait for 5 minutes after the serum application before using a moisturizer, so in 5 minutes everything is soaked up and all the ingredients in the serum have worked it's way through the skin's deep layers.

So far, I like using it before my usual moisturizer. I use it in the morning and in night time too (after cleansing & toning, and before my night cream). I do find that my moisturizer now sinks in much more easier into my skin, and I think the serum somehow helps the overall appearance of my face so far. Of course you have to use a serum on daily basis for a significant time to finally see the effect, but so far I'm liking this serum :) 

This serum is $24.99 and is recommended for sensitive skin. Other than Rosehip + Hibiscus, they also have other serums such as Three Berry Daily Face Serum which is a potent concentration of vitamin C from organic blueberry, raspberry, and cranberry. And also the Vitamin Enhanced Face Firming Serum which has an anti-aging formula.


There are several other skincare and bath products that are available at Made From Earth website.
Overall, I believe that Made From Earth is a place where you could buy high quality natural chemical-free skin care products, with quite an affordable price. Their products are valuable, their bottles and packages looks professional, and they ship fast! 
Made From Earth also have "Value Buy Product Sets" as well as "Samples/Trial Size".
