Review: MadeFromEarth Organic Soaps- Blood Orange & Lemongrass Tea

image

 

MadeFromEarth is one of my favorite companies on earth! They made nothing but oragnic, natural beauty and bath products. I was sent two natural soaps this time around, and I love both of them!

The two soaps they sent were the Blood Orange Soap and the Lemongrass  Tea Soap. They both have such amazing smells and beautiful vibrant coloring. They come packaged in their own little cardboard boxes with the name of the soap on t he side. That way if you order more than one and want to save some back- you can open the one you want (without damaging the others’ box).

These soaps are free from chemicals or any other harshness that can dry out your skin. Before meeting these amazing soaps, I wouldn’t use soap in the shower. I hate when my skin feels itchy due to dry skin. These soaps actually moisturize and nourish my skin!

 

Blood Orange Soap

The first one I ended up pulling out and using was the Blood Orange Soap. The Blood Orange is a real orange with a deep crimson colored skin- which is where it got the name “Blood Orange”.

Here is a picture of a sliced blood orange, courtesy of Wikipedia. See how the flesh of the orange is deeply colored? If you’ve never had the experience of smelling anything with blood orange in it- you KNOW how sweet and succulent it is. I am deeply in love with the smell. Winking smile

Although I had previously heard of Blood Orange skin care products (I have an AMAZING perfume that’s blood orange) I had never seen it used in a soap before. I am SO glad that I got a chance to use this. The smell stimulates not only my senses because it smells so amazing, but it also seems to stimulate my skin cells.

The ingredients in this soap actually help repair damaged skin cells to leave it soft, silky, and luxurious. Unlike regular bar soaps, this one lathers up VERY nicely. This leaves my skin feeling refreshed and revitalized.

It is made with essential oils that nourish the skin instead of drying it out. The essential oils in the Blood Orange have a large amount of antioxidants that other citrus fruits don’t have. This also has the essential oils of bergamot which has antibacterial qualities that help cure skin problems.

Blood Orange Ingredients:
Saponified oils of Coconut, Blood Orange Essential Oil, Bergamot, Orange Essential Oil, Tangerine Essential Oil, Madder Root, and Rosemary Extract
Scent: Orange

BUY IT: You can buy the Blood Orange Soap for $4.99

Lemongrass Tea Soap

 

A soap that can prevent skin damage, while thoroughly cleansing it. It has a deep yellow color and smells amazing. You can definitely smell a strong citrus blast with a hint of relaxing tea. The fragrance of this soap is helpful in calming the nervous system as well as easing headaches & to assist in relaxation.

It also foams up really really well, and it has lasted for quite some time now! At only $4.99 this is a steal for having nothing but organic, holistic ingredients that not only smell amazing but have great benefits for your skin.

This soap reminds me of summer. It’s fresh, fun, and smells great. If you aked me to choose between the two, I wouldn’t be able to because I love them both! Not only do they add character to the bathroom (unlike regular white bar soaps) but they didn’t dry my skin out because of the amazing essential oils that they contain!

Ingredients:
Saponified oils of safflower, sunflower, palm, and coconut (with retained glycerin), essential oils, rosemary leaf, annatto seed, rosemary extract.

BUY IT: Buy the Lemongrass Tea Soap for $4.99
