I know I’m not the only one that has been surrounded by Clean Beauty. I see ads, I get emails, and almost every day a reader asks me about Clean Beauty products. But there’s been one overall theme to most of the Clean Beauty products that I see. They are expensive.
I recently discovered Earth to Skin, a Walmart exclusive Clean Beauty Skincare brand! The price tag is much more affordable than other clean skincare brands, but I have to say that I think the quality is on par with other brands that I’ve tried. This is an inexpensive but not a “cheap” brand if that makes sense. The brand has a huge selection of products, and the lower price point meant I could try out a lot of different products.
Most, but not all, of Earth to Skin’s products are pregnancy safe. I have a post listing all of the Earth to Skin products and their safety for pregnancy and nursing.
After years of testing different skincare products from brands at many different price points, I have to say that the best product to try first (and therefore know how good the brand is), has to be their cleanser. A lot of brands have fancy serums with all the bells and whistles, but if they can’t create a good cleanser, there’s something wrong!
This exfoliating cleanser is really, really good. I love that it has a little exfoliating grit, just enough to gently scrub my skin each day. They’re not at all sharp, and they’re there but not so many that this cleanser becomes a scrub. I use this cleanser with just my fingers, and it easily washes off with warm water. It cleans, doesn’t overwash my skin, and leaves no residue behind.
I ordered 2 different daytime moisturizers, simply because I was intrigued by the idea of a gel cream and had to try it out. This is a good choice if your skin is oily or combination, I found it to have similar hydration to a lotion moisturizer instead of a cream. It feels nice as you apply it, it is fairly lightweight. It absorbs very quickly into the skin, so it works well under makeup.
This moisturizer is more like a typical cream that you’re used to using. It doesn’t feel heavy at all, and offers a nice boost of moisture. I have found that it’s great under makeup, especially as the weather has turned cooler I’ve been using it to combat any dry patches.
This is a gentle, non-irritating eye cream. It works well under makeup, plumping up my under eye area nicely.
I’m a fan of any overnight, super hydrating masks. This one is pretty similar to a very well known department store brand’s hydrating overnight mask. It feels like a thick cream, and is not sticky at all. There’s a fresh, pleasant scent and as I apply it feels very hydrating and soothing. It sinks into my skin over about 5-10 minutes and the next morning my skin looks glowy and hydrated!
If you want to add a little extra exfoliation into your skincare routine, this is a great product to try. Do not let the peel in the name scare you! Truly, this is a slightly more exfoliating cleanser. Even with my rosacea I can use this 2-3x/week without any issues. The peel is light orange and does smell a bit like pumpkin, it rinses off easily and afterwards my face just feels like I’ve scrubbed it a little bit more. I’ve had no irritation or other issues.
When my skin is feeling a little extra dry or irritated (which happens with just a few minutes outside in the fall weather), then I reach for this mask when I’m getting ready for bed. It adds a bit of moisture, but mostly it is very soothing. I feel like I’m slathering myself in aloe vera gel, though it smells a bit minty. It feels cool but doesn’t tingle and isn’t at all uncomfortable. The scent does increase after a few minutes, and when I rinse it off after 10-15 minutes my skin is much happier and just calm.
