Down to Earth contacted me about a month ago to ask if I'd like to review some of their products. I checked out their website and was instantly attracted because all their products are made from 100% natural ingredients. Their products do NOT contain parabens, silicones, formaldehyde and other chemicals which can be bad for us, but instead, they use natural alternatives.
If you have a moment, I highly suggest reading their FAQs page*click*. It is super informative and I've definitely learned a lot about natural/organic products or those that claim to be.
You'll also be glad to know that Down to Earth's products are Cruelty Free and Fair Trade.
I selected a couple of items from their website and tried them out the minute I received them. Here's my review after 3 weeks.
Bug Shield Lotion
This works very well! Since returning to Malaysia, I've been bitten countless times by evil mosquitoes and have the scars to show (yes, I don't know why I scar easily since coming back from the UK). After applying this, I have not had a single mosquito bite. You may argue it's a coincidence, but I've not changed anything else. I still stay in the same house (sit in the same places and sleep on the same bed), so the only thing I can attribute the sudden disinterest of mosquitoes is to this Bug Shield Lotion.
It smells really strongly of insect repellent which is a bit of a turn off, but I suppose if you only apply it at home that should be okay. Or if you want to wear it out as a man repellent, that'd be pretty good, too #lamejoke
This smells really pleasant.
It's also very gentle.
This smells like sweeties!
It does what it promises in terms of providing moisture.
Absorbs quickly into skin and doesn't leave a sticky feeling.
The smell, while sweet, is a bit too strong. I applied this in the office (just on my hands) and the smell was a little too overwhelming.
Goat's Milk and Cocoa Body Butter - Unscented
It goes on like butter and is very moisturizing. My skin always feels super smooth the next day.
It also doesn't leave a sticky feeling.
All Natural Tinted Lip Balm - Island Kiss
My current favourite lip balm.
The tinted red is just the right shade for me, not too dark.
I wear this to work every day and it provides really good moisture. The best part is, it's non-greasy!
For Malaysians, you're entitled to Free Shipping on orders of 3 items or more. All prices are extremely reasonable.
