Who
Made from Earth

What
Rosehip and Hibiscus Face Serum

Ingredients
Organic Aloe Vera Juice, Hibiscus Flower Extract, Rosehip Seed Oil, Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Emulsifying Wax NF, Stearic Acid, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Phenoxyethanol, Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE Bitartrate), Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), Vitamin B3, Pro-Vitamin B5, Beta Carotene (Pro Vitamin A), Ascorbyl Palmitate (Vitamin C Ester), Polysaccharide Gum, Rosemary Oleoresin, Neem Oil, Tetrasodium EDTA, Citric Acid

What’s they say

This fabulous Rosehip + Hibiscus Face Serum is beneficial for sensitive skin types. Rose hips are a rich source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and Vitamin C. It plays a vital role in the regeneration process of skin cells and the repair of damaged tissues.

Hibiscus extract with its antioxidant properties blends perfectly with the Rosehip Oil and provides natural astringent properties.

Bank Breaker?
No, not really. At $24.99 per 2oz., it seems reasonable enough considering what’s in it. The only con I can think of is that Made from Earth is not a brick and mortar business and all purchases are made online which of course means there is the added cost of shipping and handling.

An added bonus for my dear readers is that all purchases come with a free Citrus Lip Balm. Just type in “iblogbeauty” in the coupon code field; no need to add to your cart!

The Good
I really like the simple scent and that the product is just so easy to spread on your face (usually dislike really thick serums that you pay so much $$$ for and have to use like half the bottle).
My skin felt noticeably smooth after I applied the product and I do love the fact that it’s loaded with Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids which help slow down the aging process of our skin and protect it from harmful UV rays.

Have been using this on and off for the past 2 weeks or so and while I don’t see any improvements with lines (I think this requires longer use of the product), I do think it makes my skin feel a little more firm. I also think it adds a subtle glow to it.

The Bad
My only, and perhaps biggest, gripe with this product is that my skin feels like it has leftover face scrub product that I failed to completely wash off when I apply this. It does go away, but you do feel it at first.
