When asked the key to my
nearly flawless skin, ok, pretty good skin, I always recommend three key items for day and night treatment usage within my skin care regimen—Vitamin C, Vitamin A (retinol) and SPF. That equates to Vitamin C and an SPF of at least 20 for day, and a retinol product of some sort for night. And, Of course, mega-moisturizers for my 50+ skin.
I am also an advocate of organic, chemical free skin care products. So, even though I review beauty products of all sorts, my preference for my own skin are "green" skin care products. That's why I was über excited to try Made From Earth Vitamin C Moisturizer. I'm already a fan of the Made from Earth line of skin care, so I had high expectations of this organic vitamin c moisturizer.
The Vitamin C Moisturizer contains the highest possible concentration of Vitamin C in a skin care product. The moisturizer is designed to protect, repair and moisturize. Vitamin C encourages collagen production, which brightens and softens the skin. It may be worn under sunscreen, since Vitamin C boosts the effectiveness of the sunscreen. While the Vitamin C Moisturizer is excellent at helping prevent sunburn, it can also aid with hyperpigmentation, which is a discoloration of the skin from frequent sun exposure.
The Vitamin C Moisturizer may also be used to restore elasticity and prevent wrinkles and fine lines.
About our Ingredients:
The combination of MSM wih Vitamin C is excellent in boosting collagen production and creating healthy new skin cells. MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is a key ingredient in the Vitamin C Moisturizer, which is an organic compound with impressive benefits. Overtime, this will improve the complexion of your skin. Coconut oil is known for being an effective moisturizer for dry skin. It delays the appearance of fine lines, and moisturizes without irritation. Coconut oil is excellent for speeding up healing process of bruises by repairing damaged skin cells. Evening prime rose oil is a great anti-inflamatory for skin conditions, such as rosescea or dry, itchy skin. It hydrates and moisturizes the skin while also brightening the skin tone without causing any irritation.
Why I love Made From Earth Vitamin C Moisturizer:
Aside from the obvious—certified organic ingredients, a high concentration of Vitamin C—Made From Earth Vitamin C Moisturizer is is plain an simple a great moisturizer. It does it's job at keeping my skin moist for hours on end. Clearly, the combination of coconut oil and evening primrose oil are an excellent synergistic combination for hydrating skin.
I have a habit of doing a pinch test to my skin after using a product over time. If my fingers have a hard time pinching my skin, that's a good thing. It means that it's firming up quite well. I have the evidence of my skin firming with this Vitamin C Moisturizer. Hopefully, that means I'm building the collagen layer in my dermis!
Additionally, the claims of assisting with hyperpigmentation and brightening the skin are true as well. With dull, lackluster skin being a sign of aging, I am an advocate of skin care that gives the skin a natural glow because the skin has clarity. That's exactly what I experienced with this moisturizer.
One of the problems with Vitamin C in skin care, is that it is often unstable and loses its integrity rather quickly. I thought that might be an issue with this moisturizer from Made From Earth. But that was not the case at all. My jar of white creamy moisturizer was as white and "new" in appearance as it was the day I opened it. That's quite unusual for most organic skin care products, and definitely a plus in my book.
