Madefromearth product review
Posted on Saturday, April 9, 2011 | 2 Comments
3 weeks ago I made a blog post about face cream. I suffer from rosacea, which is is pretty much skin inflammation. My face is so sensitive that it flairs up when it is too cold, when it is too hot, and when the face cream/ cleansers I use have too many chemicals and preservatives in it. My dermatologist recommended 2 brands for my skin: Spectro Hydracare and Complex 15. Unfortunately, both brands test on animals. I really want to use a facecream/ cleanser that does not test on animals....so...what popped up in my search for cruelty free face cream was the brand Madefromearth
Madefromearth is an organic skin care company that does not use any harmful chemicals and preservatives in manufacturing their product.s Madefromearth is FDA Registered and USDA Organic Certified. They manufacture their products under Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP), this is huge! I work for a company that also complies with FDA and cGMP regulations so I know exactly how much detail and effort is put in to follow these regulations.
I have been using the products for a week and a half and I think that that enough time has passed for me to do a review. I will of course continue to use the products and update my review.
1. Lip balm: The vanilla smells like real vanilla beans and citrus one smells like the citrus drink "5 alive"...just image lemons + oranges squeezed together!! I found the lipbalms a bit waxy and hard at first but after using it a bit the lip balm softened and applied like butter. Maybe my room was initially too cold?
2. The Rosehip + Hibiscus Facial Serum. This stuff is awesome. I use it as a moisturizer at night. It dries super fast so I can apply it to my face right before I go to sleep and it won't stick to my pillow or bed sheets.
You rub the serum in and that's it, it absorbs that fast!
3. The Green Tea Toxin Cleanser. This cleanser was a check mark for me because it didn't make my skin burn. Yes, my skin is so sensitive that most cleansers make my skin burn...even the one I regularly use: Cetaphil. This cleanser did not make my face burn...so yay!!
I decided to try to use the cleanser as a make up remover and it worked perfectly. Here is a picture of a cotton pad + eyeliner residue.
