READ MORE FOR MY REVIEW!

I began using this serum in the middle of July as a part of my daily skincare regime. Typically I'd apply it once a day, at night, but sometimes I would apply it after cleansing in the morning as well.

The consistency is like a very thin lotion or primer. It isn't sticky or watery. Once applied to the skin, my skin instantly feels baby soft and slightly cool. It takes a minute or so to completely absorb, and no residue is left behind on the skin (or my fingers). After the serum is absorbed, I'll typically apply my favorite moisturizer (Reviva Labs Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester & DMAE Cream). I have no problems with layering products over the serum. There are some serums that dry to a film to the face, making it difficult to add other serums or moisturizers over top, but this one absorbs like a moisturizer itself into the skin.

I have noticed since I've used this that my complexion looks much clearer than before. I had a few blemish scars that always needed a little extra concealer when I'd apply my makeup, and those are now gone. My overall complexion looks more even, and my skin never feels dried out. I can't say whether it works wonders for fine lines (considering I don't really have any yet) but it does work exceptionally well to tone the skin and aid in the reduction of scars.

I'm really thrilled with this product and it's definitely a product I'd recommend!

PROS: Absorbs quickly, Moisturizing, Doesn't leave a residue on the skin, No fragrance, Helped fade my blemish scars. 
CONS: None.
PACKAGING: The packaging is fantastic. It's in a small plastic bottle with a pump, which works well for sanitary reasons, and for minimizing the waste of product. It's also very lightweight, so it's ideal for travel.
OVERALL: If you're in the market for an Organic facial serum that doesn't contain Petrochemicals and Phthalates, Parabens, Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfate, Diazolidinyl Urea, Mineral Oil and Fragrance, Made from Earth's serums are a great choice for you. This is also a good option if you have sensitive skin, as there are few irritants in the ingredients list. You may want to skip this if you're skin doesn't do well with Vitamin E, which can be an irritant to some.

  1. I've been looking for a new serum to try that can even out my blemish scars and I think this may be it! And with winter coming up I def. need something moisturizing as well- I live in Milwaukee so I know you can relate to the harsh winter weather. Also a huge plus that its organic.
    Thanks so much for the review!

  3. Guess what. This product is actually a repackaged product of Essential Wholesale called Rosehip & Hibiscus Facial Serum! And it costs only $11.25 for 16-ounces!
    No, I'm not they're sales person or anything. I just found them out from a fellow blogger, lipglossfiend.wordpress.com (*waves* Aud!) and got hooked in a few of their products, including this one, but got choked on the shipping quote being in Europe! *bawl*
