Some say that you should never put on your body what you can’t put in your mouth–and this is specifically what the ladies at Earth Tu Face believe. All of their products can be eaten–every single lotion, scrub, balm and cream is made from 100% plant-based, food grade ingredients with organic oils and waxes. In addition, these products have been created with no animal testing and are housed in completely recyclable containers. This is truly a brand that won’t weigh on your conscience and you can feel good about using.
Speaking of eating–the first time I tried their Rosemary and Salt Lotion, I immediately pictured a fluffy foccacia covered in rosemary, olive oil and salt. Not that this lotion makes you smell like Italian bread–but the rosemary scent is vibrant and fresh, with a slight minty-ness. The lotion itself is wonderful–not too heavy and absorbs very quickly, leaving a light, herby scent behind. On particularly dry days (I have very dry skin), I love to layer some almond oil underneath.
The Rose Face Balm is not what you would normally envision for a balm–it is in no way heavy, goopy or waxy feeling. It is a very solid balm that you need to melt a bit first with your fingers. ETF describes this as a concentrated face cream as it contains no water, and I think that this is fair. It doesn’t feel as if you are slicking on a heavy layer, it’s light, protective and very hydrating. I probably wouldn’t recommend this for oilier skins, but for normal to drier skins, this would work wonderfully and be particularly beneficial in the cold Winter months. It also contains coconut oils (known to be great as an anti-bacterial ingredient), and sandalwood and lavender oils, which make for an incredible scent.
Dying to try the rest of their range now.
