I would also highly advise checking out Earthwise Beauty website and blog for a vast information about the individual ingredients and why they are used in certain products, and I would suggest watching Andie's video on Earthwise Beauty products, she has a few videos, and I will link the brand overview video below - she talks so passionately about them, you can't help but want every single one of them!
*Update - as I was asked to give my thoughts on the samples I have, so there you go - I have or have had samples of Babassu oil, which I couldn't handle the smell off, and my skin wasn't happy with it either. I checked the ingredients (and the price) and I think it was the tobacco extract that my nose wasn't liking, and the price point is high too, so I decided not to invest in the full size of it - I have Mahalo's Vitality Elixir for comparison, and it works so much better for me. Next is Carrot a Day Sensitive formulation - I am sad to report this didn't suit my sensitive skin at all, it might be too much of essential oils for me to handle, but it made my skin red and blotchy, and it was very uncomfortable feeling once it was on, so I had to wash it off both times I tried to wear it and apply some balm aftewards to soothe my skin. These two samples went to someone in Germany. Next I have Blackstrap Molasses face mask, and sadly my skin was somewhat irritated by it too - I don't know how it is possible, as everyone seems to be raving about it, but I guess it is not for me? I didn't notice any amazing changes in my skin either, so I guess I am not investing in it either. That's my thoughts after trying it once, and I have some of it left for two or three more uses, so I might try it once more again as not to diss the product after trying it just once. Update a few months later - after I opened it once more about three months later, I found it moldy. I am definitely passing on. Next is Tangerine Skies Facial oil, which looks like sunshine in a bottle, and it is semi solid at a room temperature, so more like a moisturiser in my eyes? It didn't suit me either, sad to report! On top of that irritated feeling it broke me out. That is after using it once, but I will persevere once more and come back to you. Next is Fern and Moss face serum in an oil form - and this didn't give me any irritations.
So, all in all, my thoughts on the brand are, they really use amazing the best you can get raw ingredients, but it doesn't automatically mean it will be suitable for everyone, and my example clearly shows that. I didn't expect to be irritated by so many products, but I am glad these were samples and not full size products! If you are sensitive and reactive as me, samples are definitely a way to go, I would hate the thought of you getting full size products and then finding out they don't suit you... So there you go, my honest opinion as always on the table. If you have been with me for any amount of time you know you are getting nothing but honesty from me.
It is becoming sort of tradition of mine to end the review with a wishlist, so shall we keep it up?
I want more of the same I have, plus Cistus and Moonlight Face Mist and Farizad's Veil SPF 30+ Powder. For starters :)
