Earth Tu Face

A review of Earth Tu Face and their high-integrity organic skincare line.

             Founded in 2010 by two herbalists (Sarah Buscho and Marina Storm) with burning desires to create authentically all-natural, organic, non-toxic, and environmentally conscious skin care products, Earth Tu Face has since transformed into a thriving brand that is well known for their commitment and integrity. The company’s credence is “you should never put on your skin what you wouldn’t put in your mouth.” It is no surprise that their products are marketed as being literally good enough to eat. However, when it comes to the wild west of organic products, many companies are making claims about quality that they simply cannot back up. Is Earth Tu Face one of those companies? After trying the products, analyzing their ingredients, and chatting directly with their passionate co-founder (Sarah), here’s our take on Earth Tu Face:

            Like many great skin care companies, Earth Tu Face was born as a result of the Founder’s deep personal need for high quality skin care products. Describing herself as the perpetual “canary in the coal mine,” Sarah Buscho, a certified herbalist and Earth Tu Face’s co-founder, jokingly bragged that she was allergic to gluten before it was cool (15 years ago). Born with extremely sensitive skin, Sarah could not wear makeup, sunscreen, or anything polyester (just to name a few) without suffering an intense allergic reaction. Eventually, Sarah found relief by crafting her own products using stuff from her kitchen (such as olive oil and coconut oil). This experience motivated Sarah to enroll in herbal school and continue to formulate non-toxic potions for her skin. It wasn’t long before Sarah met her co-founder, Marina Storm, and together they set out to create the highest quality, sustainable, and all-natural skin care products on the market.

Earth Tu Face’s ingredients are sourced from their own private organic farm, a host of local farms, and other sustainable sources. The brand’s luxury prices are truly a reflection of their high quality ingredients and environmentally friendly packaging. All of their ingredients are truly 100% plant-based, food-grade, gluten-free, and non GMO. Additionally, the company really does strive to source organic ingredients whenever possible. You won’t find any alcohols, parabens, fragrances, fillers, phthalates, sulfates, lab-made/synthetic ingredients, or anything you would be afraid to eat in any of their products. On top of all that, Earth Tu Face’s products are still handmade in small batches right here in the USA.

Overall, we were very impressed with Earth Tu Face! They are an ethically driven company that believes in integrity, honesty, and transparency. The Founders have a “cut no corners” attitude and you can see the fruits of this credence in their excessively high quality products. If you are looking for an organic skin care brand that actually uses real organic ingredients (and avoids toxic ingredients), then look no further than Earth Tu Face. Additionally, online customer reviews of their products are positive across the board. Reviewers all rave about the effectiveness of the products and most negative reviews are in regards to their luxury prices (however, in this case, you get the quality that you pay for). All in all, Earth Tu Face is a brand founded by experts with values steeped in honesty. There are no gimmicks or exaggerated claims of quality here!  Here’s a breakdown of our research on some of Earth Tu Face’s most popular and effective skin care products:

Suggested Earth Tu Face Daily Skincare Routine


Organic Palmarosa + Aloe Face Wash

When asked to make a tough choice and select just one “must-try” product from her skin care line, Sarah, Earth Tu Face’s co-founder, responded “That is like asking a mom to choose her favorite child! If I must pick one I would start with our face wash.” She’s not alone, either. Customers of Earth Tu Face rave about this organic face wash’s ability to leave their skin soft, hydrated, and squeaky clean. The Palmarosa and Aloe face wash is a true botanical cleanser that uses saponified organic oils (saponified literally means to turn oil into soap by alkali reaction). This gentle organic soap is then fortified with aloe, vitamin E, rosemary, and rose geranium to deeply hydrate the skin. A perfect all-natural and organic face wash for all skin types.


Organic + Aloe Toning Mist

Toning is an essential step in any daily skin care routine. A good toner will remove all remaining dirt and oil left behind after cleansing, soften the skin, and facilitate better absorption of skin care products. This toning mist from Earth Tu Face does all of that and more. Handmade weekly at Earth Tu Face’s apothecary, this toner is packed with classic toning essentials like rose water, lavender, aloe vera, and witch hazel (fans say that the smell of rose and lavender is intoxicating). You won’t find any alcohol or other ingredients that may dry out the skin. This produce can be used as a daily toner (after cleansing and before moisturizing) or as a skin spritzer anytime you need an aromatherapy pick-me-up. Great for all skin types.


Organic Immortelle + Rose Hydrating Repair Face Balm

After cleansing and toning it is time to bathe your skin with nutrients and moisture. This simple yet effective daily moisturizing balm is packed with some of the most rejuvenating organic skin care compounds on the planet (like olive oil, cocoa butter, coconut oil, rose petals, immortelle flowers, lavender, and safflower oil to name only a few). Customers from across the web swear by this balm and many of them use it as a dry skin salve and ultra-hydrating night treatment. It is also highly recommended for those with very dry skin. Because this moisturizer has a thicker balm-like consistency (unlike a water-based lotion), a little goes a long way.

Top Rated Earth Tu Face Skincare Products

Organic Honey + Coconut Facial Mask

This mask was featured as a top organic mask 20 Amazing Organic Masks for Every Skin Issue article because of its high quality ingredients and potent skin healing benefits for sensitive skin. This mask is handmade with fresh organic flowers from Earth Tu Face’s personal garden. The honey in this mask is locally and ethically sourced from happy bees (bees that are not fumigated). Raw organic honey is a great treatment for acne-prone, sensitive, and dry skin. Honey is a humectant, which means that is brings moisture from the air into the skin (real moisture that won’t clog pores). In addition to the antioxidant powers of honey, this mask also includes anti-inflammatory ingredients like virgin coconut oil, lavender, and rose petals.

Sea Buckthorn + Geranium Repairing Eye Serum

The skin under our eyes is much thinner and more delicate than the rest of our face; thus, it requires more care to maintain a youthful appearance. This serum from Earth Tu Face contains a blend of highly moisturizing organic oils (like olive oil, sea buckthorn, lavender, chamomile, and geranium flower oil) known to promote cell regeneration, stimulate collagen production, and protect the delicate under eye skin. Simply pat and massage one tiny drop of this oil under and around the eye area after cleansing and toning (allow it to fully absorb before applying makeup). Safe and effective for all skin types.

Blue Chamomile + Carrot Seed Balancing Facial Serum

In addition to the Immortelle and Rose balm, Earth Tu Face also offers this luxurious daily moisturizing serum. Made from blue chamomile (anti-inflammatory), carrot seed oil (rejuvenating), olive oil (antibacterial), and a host of other potent organic oils, this serum has all of the components of an all-around problem solver. The consistency is light, non-greasy, and absorbs quickly into the skin (use just 2-3 drops to start or add 1 drop to your daily moisturizer). To top it all off, this serum has earned solid reviews from customers who have reported more toned, supple, and moisturized skin after just two weeks of use. Perfect for all skin types and especially recommended for dry skin.

Virgin Coconut + Cardamom Hydrate and Nourish Body Butter

Earth Tu Face’s products are food grade and good enough to eat—and you’ll have a hard time resisting this Coconut and Cardamom whipped body butter (their founder has famously made pancakes with this body butter). This ultra-moisturizing body butter is made yummy all-natural and organic ingredients like coconut oil, sunflower wax, olive oil, cocoa butter, cardamom oil, and cinnamon oil. These oils form a protective lipid barrier around the skin to lock in moisture for long lasting hydration. This product has a true “butter” consistency (like high quality shea butter) and needs to be massaged into the skin thoroughly (1-5 minutes of massaging depending on skin type). Online reviews are positive and customers seem to love the consistency and smell. Great for all skin types.
