A few weeks ago, I was contacted by Made from Earth, an organic holistic skincare care company; and they wanted to see if I was interesting in trying a few of their products. Normally, I only review books and book-related products; however, I couldn't pass up this offer. (I guess you could say that this falls under the "occasionally other things" part of my blog's description.) I absolutely adore skincare "products" and I'm always trying out new ones, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity for me to learn about Made from Earth products.
I immediately went to their website to learn a little bit about the company and their products, and I was extremely impressed. Not only is the site very attractive (and organized), but this company does things the right way. They use certified organic ingredients without adding harmful chemical preservatives (unlike some other companies who claim they are organic but end up adding toxins to their products.) They also use only cruelty-free products in their manufacturing process. In addition, their line of products seemed to have something for everyone. I had no idea were to start, so I just requested some sort of anti-aging product. I am in my early 40s and I think my age is really beginning to show!
Much to my surprise (and excitement), a big box of Made from Earth products arrived a few days later -- check out the picture above to see all of the goodies. I think it's fair to say that I received not only some anti-aging products, but also some overall body care, hair and bath products, and lip balms. Here's the run down on my goodies:
- Grapefruit Glycolic Wash
- Rooibus Tea Facial Scrub
- Olive Night Cream
- Rosehip + Hibiscus Facial Serum
- Vitamin Enhanced Face Firming Serum
- Holistic Honey Body Lotion
- Lemongrass Tea Soap
- Oatmeal Spice Soap
- Tea + Protein Herbal Shampoo
- Peppermint Herbal Conditioner
- Blueberry Lip Balm
- Citrus Fresh Lip Balm
I can't really say what product is my very favorite since I seem to change my mind on a daily basis. I do love the soaps -- they smell amazing, and the lip balms stay on for a very long time. However, I think the skin care products are my favorites. In fact, there are a few more I'd like to try including some of their cleansers and moisturizers. Right now, I'm absolutely loving the serums (they make my skin glow!) and the Olive Night Cream.
As far as prices go, I think Made from Earth is more than competitive.. especially when you consider what you're getting. Many of the products that I've tried are pretty concentrated and a little goes a long way. It is recommended that you only use some of the scrubs/exfoliators two or three times a week, so one bottle/jar will last for a pretty long time. Made from Earth also offers packaged product sets that are discounted as well as trial sizes/travel sets.
I honestly love Made from Earth products and I look forward to being a regular customer in the future!
