Made from Earth: Rooibos Tea Face Scrub

Hello ladies,

I have recently been enjoying Made from Earth's Rooibos Tea Face Scrub. This all natural scrub is the perfect selection for its gentle exfoliating and moisturizing properties. The combination of aloe vera, rooibos tea extract and vitamin E makes this scrub a healthful product to add to your skin care regimen.
For exfoliating, there is nothing more satisfying to me than scrubbing. Different than other natural products, Rooibos Tea Face Scrub employs jojoba beads to throughly cleanse the skin. These aren't the oil filled variety. They are small, waxy spheres that can be massaged against the face and neck to remove dead skin cells.

The round shape is superior to exfoliating with crushed walnuts or apricot seeds. The jojoba spheres provide gentle and even cleansing with no rough edges.

I am really impressed with how soft to the touch my skin feels immediately after using Rooibos Tea Face Scrub. It's most apparent on my cheeks, near the jaw line, where my face tends to experience the most dryness.

While the directions state to lightly massage into face for five minutes per treatment before rinsing, I believe two minutes is sufficient. I tried scrubbing for the full five minutes and the recommended time seemed more suited to a facial or an occasional deep cleansing than a twice weekly treatment.

The natural fragrance of this scrub is sweet and comforting. It reminds me of sitting at a cafe table and drinking a frothy, coconut steamer. It has a light and creamy, coconut scent.

Ingredients: Aloe Barbadensis (Organic Aloe Vera) Juice, Cocos Nucifera (Organic Coconut) Oil, Aspalathus linearis (Organic Rooibos Tea) Extract, Emulsifying Wax NF, Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Olea Europea (Organic Olive) Oil, Palm Stearic Acid, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Wax Beads, Simmondsia Chinensis (Organic Jojoba) Oil, Persea Americana (Avocado) Oil, Hamamelis Virginana (Witch Hazel), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Xanthan Gum (Polysaccharide Gum), Salix Nigra (Black Willowbark).

While Rooibos is best known as African Red Bush Tea, its healthfulness extends beyond the teacup. It's antioxidant and detoxifying properties are utilized in skin care. Rooibos extract contains natural alpha-hydroxy acids and zinc, ingredients that promote skin healing.

I appreciate the variety of organic oils included in Rooibos Tea Face Scrub. Coconut, olive, jojoba and avocado oils are blended to make the scrub moisturizing. The consistency is creamy and luxuriant with the jojoba beads adding a gentle massage.

If you are looking for a quality, natural exfoliant to help skin feel smooth and moisturized during the winter months, I can recommend Rooibos Tea Face Scrub.

Rooibos Tea Face Scrub was sent to me for review. This product is available for purchase at The retail price is $24.99 USD.

Happy painting, ladies!

  1. I can read how healthy this scrub could be. All those ingredients are perfect. Since I like drinking Red Rooibos Tea, I bet this scrub would be just as enjoyable.
