One thought on “Rosacea News March 2009

  1. Normally I don’t take the time to write reviews of anything, but the Made from Earth Green Tea Toxin Cleanser has changed my mind.

    I am a 52-year-old woman and have had rosacea my entire adult life. It started out as acne when I was a teenager, then progressed to the rosacea stage later on, with much less acne. I have tried oral antibiotics, gels, lotions, and all of these were dermatologist prescribed. I even tried Murad products. Some treatments improved my complexion a little, some made my rosacea flare up even worse.

    When I read some reviews about the Made from Earth products on the internet, I decided to try the Made from Earth “Green Tea Toxin Cleanser”. Well…what a surprise.

    After just a few weeks (while also using themade from earth rosehip serum) the redness was diminished, and after almost a month now, my rosacea symptoms are all but history. I just can’t believe it.

    I don’t know what’s in that stuff, but it works for me. I am completely satisfied with it. There is no odor, no greasiness as with some ointments. In fact, after applying it seems to tighten and smooth everything a little, and I have found that I receive all the benefits even using it once daily, in the morning.

    I suppose if I used it twice daily I would probably have even better results. I guess I just wanted to make the tube last longer.

    I wish they would make it in a larger size, then I may be more apt to use it more often, even though I don’t really need to. My verdict is: if you have any symptoms of rosacea, give this a try and see if it doesn’t improve your complexion quickly.
