Are you looking for skincare products that are more natural and not full of chemicals? I need skincare products that are more natural for my skin as I find that I am allergic to so many items. A few years ago I did a review for Holistic Honey Lotion from the company, Made From Earth. That was my favorite lotion while I had it. It softened my skin so well, and smelled divine. Just recently I got a few more products to review from Made From Earth. All that I received are great products that treat my skin so well.
Made From Earth sent me quite a variety of products for us to try: Vitamin C Moisturizer; Grapefruit Glycolic Wash; Cucumber Cooling Gel; Green Tea Toxin Cleanser; Tea Tree + Protein Herbal Shampoo; and Vitamin E + Citrus Body Gel Wash.
The Vitamin C Moisturizer is something that I have been using daily under my makeup. This all-natural lotion is packed with vitamin C, in fact, the highest concentration possible, because vitamin C is essential for maintaining smoothness and elasticity in our skin. Vitamin C is so good for our skin as it also encourages collagen production, which brightens and softens the skin. The Vitamin C Moisturizer may be worn under sunscreen, since Vitamin C boosts the effectiveness of the sunscreen.
Vitamin C is not the only good ingredient in this lotion as it also contains MSM (methylsulfonylmethane). The combination of MSM wih Vitamin C is excellent in boosting collagen production and creating healthy new skin cells. The Vitamin C Moisturizer also contains coconut oil which is quite an effective skin moisturizer. There is such a bounty of natural ingredients that all work together to give us the softest facial skin that is possible.
I do use this every day under my mineral makeup, but I do use a hyaluronic acid serum first on my face, neck, and decollete. There are no perfumes added that I can detect, and it doesn't bother my very sensitive nasal allergies. The Vitamin C Moisturizer works perfectly with it. It is a nice thick lotion that smooths on well.
The Green Tea Toxin Cleanser is what I use to clean my face at night. Green Tea, one of the main ingredients, is a base antioxidant. This healthy cleanser from Made From Earth is enhanced with vitamins A, B, C and E. Since it contains no chemicals, the cleanser is hypoallergenic and non-irritating for people with sensitive skin. The Aloe Vera base, the first ingredient in this 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.
Here is something that I found very interesting about this cleanser. The Green Tea Toxin Cleanser was developed based on research showing topical applications of green tea may be able to prevent skin cancer when applied to your skin. A German study found that an extract of green tea applied externally to the skin for 10 minutes, three times a day could help people with skin damaged from radiation therapy (after 16-22 days).
This effectively and gently takes off my makeup and any dirt that accumulates throughout the day. It is soft and smooth as you apply to your face and neck when you cleanse. It rinses well with warm water. This also does not contain any perfumes - it's has a nice clean natural smell.
Another cleanser that I received is the Grapefruit Glycolic Wash which has the delightful citrusy natural fragrance of grapefruit. This will gently remove surface impurities with its high concentration of Vitamin C. It is formulated with gentle jojoba beads which stimulate your skin and activate the glycolic acid. Grapefruit contains powerful antioxidants for fighting free radical damage that ages skin prematurely. Glycolic Acid regenerates skins natural renewal process; MSM drives ingredients deep into the epidermal layer, preventing problematic skin conditions in the future.
My daughter who has acne prone skin has been using the Grapefruit Glycolic Wash. It is helping her control her breakouts, and I have seen some improvement. Also, the redness is also not as noticeable. She does use this in conjunction with an adult acne product. The two are working together well.
The Tea Tree + Protein Shampoo has been working wonders for my hair and scalp. It's sometimes hard for me to find a shampoo that will clean my hair, but yet moisturize my scalp without leaving my hair feel greasy. My scalp can get so dry and itchy that results in a flaky scalp. This herbal shampoo, for all hair types, is formulated with organic plant-based ingredients to emulsify scalp and hair without dryness. Organic tea, grasses, whole wheat proteins, and other plant extracts strengthen and smooth the hair. Tea tree is specifically formulated to rejuvenate hair and clarify the scalp by removing impurities. Made From Earth's Tea Tree + Protein Herbal Shampoo also includes Pro-Vitamin B5 which has been scientifically-formulated to revitalize hair.
Tea Tree oil hales from Australia where it was used for years by the natives. It is a healing oil that is known as a topical antiseptic and anti-fungal treatment. It also has antibiotic properties that helps with skin infections, dandruff, psoriasis, and much more. Having this in a shampoo, will protect your scalp so well. I love how my scalp is feeling now.
If you thought that the body wash that you pick up at the store is good, you are in for a surprise when you try the Made From Earth Vitamin E + Citrus Body Gel. This vegetable based body gel lathers up so well, and the natural light fragrance smells of its ingredients of organic oranges, limes, and lemons.
Did you know that vitamin E moisturizes and rejuvenates for soft, giving you more youthful-looking skin. Anti-oxidants Vitamin E and Pro-Vitamin B5 neutralize sun and environmental damage. It will also help keep skin smooth and supple. Studies have shown that topical vitamin E improves skin moisture by offsetting dryness caused by aging and environmental factors. Topical vitamin E may also promote blood circulation and prevent the formation of blood clots. The Vitamin E + Citrus Body Gel is a great way to keep clean with all the extra benefits.
Ever have a sunburn? Living in the desert, many times someone comes back in with red skin - even after I try to keep reminding them to go out with sunscreen on. I do typically hear from them that they only meant to be out for just a few minutes but got to doing something. So sunburns still happen even though we try to be careful. To soothe that burn, up until a little while ago, we had nothing that would help. Here's the solution! The Cucumber Cooling Gel from Made From Earth. This will quickly take the sting out of a burn and start the healing process by stimulating the production of new skin cells.
This is our favorite from the items that we received to review from Made From Earth. This soft cream goes on smoothly and really takes the smart out of that sunburn. The Cucumber Cooling Gel contains the potent healing ingredients of Vitamin C, Vitamin B5, Vitamin E and cucumber. You can use this just in the areas of sunburn but also as:
Under eye therapy: Instead of slicing cucumbers, use the Cucumber Cooling Gel both under and around your eyes for its restoration effect. Not only will it help under eye bags and dark circles, but it will also smooth fine lines.
Even skin tone: Stimulating skin cells gets new even skin cells to form which creates a smoother pigment gradient on facial skin.
Made From Earth does not use any synthetic chemicals in their products. Most of the chemicals that you find are just used as a preservative, and who wants to put chemical preservatives on their skin - not me! Made From Earth limits their line of products to just the best the organic market can offer in face treatments, body lotions, hair, bath and lip balms. It has been their honor to work with the best eco-friendly, environmentally conscious and recognized people in the health and beauty industry.
