-closed- Terralina Ultimate Collection: MamaBuzz Review and Giveaway







I was offered to get to review the Ultimate Collection from Terralina.
"At Terralina, we believe that what goes onto your skin, goes into your body. We formulated our natural and luxurious line of skincare with your health in mind.
Using advanced formulations of natural ingredients, we bring you the most luxurious and effective skincare, without the use of harsh or harmful ingredients, such as parabens, PEGs, silicone, mineral oils, ethoxylates, glycols, acrylates, or artificial fragrance.
While many synthetic ingredients can be harsh or harmful, even some natural products contain allergens, such as peanut oils and citrus extracts, that may also irritate the skin. Therefore, we don’t believe that a product needs to be either 100% natural or highly synthetic to be effective. Rather, we believe that the best skincare comes from the deliberate and careful combination of natural ingredients and science.
We spent two years formulating our effective, safe and luxurious products using only natural and gentle alternatives to harsh or synthetic ingredients. As a result, all of our products are at least 98.65% natural. Instead of using silicone, we created a natural emulsification process based on the wonders of olive oil. We used botanical extracts and witch hazel instead of detergents and sulfates." -Creators Patricia & Gina Garrubbo


Most of these products have olive oil in them, and I always stay away from products with any kinds of oils since my face breaks out so easy. I was hesitant to use these, but decided to give it a try. I am happy to report my face did not breakout from using these! Overall I am happy with this collection. I used them in the shower and in the order below please read my individual review on each product:


Terralina Gentle Facial Cleanser (3.4 oz)
Sulfate-free formula
Contains oat and bark extracts to cleanse, willow herb and chamomile to soothe, and olive oil to moisturizer the skin.
•Gently removes makeup, dirt & impurities

•Calms & moisturizes
•Compatible with the skin's natural pH balance
•99.85% natural
•Perfect for all skin types
This was my least favorite product. I felt like it was just greasing up my face, it doesn't lather so to me it feel like I'm just rubbing cream all over. This had a light scent, but was not my favorite smell either.

Terralina Gentle Facial Exfoliator (2.75 oz)
Revitalizes your complexion, cleanses pores and improves skin texture.
This 98.65% natural formula is suited to all skin types and does not contain parabens, PEGs, ethoxylates, glycol, acrylates, silicones, harsh alcohols, mineral oils, or artificial fragrance.

•Deep cleans & unclogs pores
•Refines & revitalizes skin
•Improves texture & clarity
•Gently removes dry, dead skin
•Leaves skin smooth, soft & polished
•Gentle enough for daily use
•99.65% natural
•Perfect for all skin types
I LOVED this product. It's been a while since I've used an exfoliator on my face and right away I could tell how great it worked. My skin was so smooth, fresh and clean feeling.

Terralina Gentle Toner (6.7 oz)
Contains sugar cane, birch and witch hazel extracts to refine the pores, and algae, aloe and chamomile to soothe the skin.
•Helps to purify & tone the skin

•Helps to refines pores
•Leaves skin refreshed, with a clean finish
•99.05% natural
•Perfect for all skin types
This toner is great too. I normally use Witch Hazel as my astringent, but with these added ingredients to help my skin further was an added benefit. The smell is nice and subtle too, and the product is easy on my skin.


Terralina Facial Moisturizer (1.5 oz)
Contains antioxidant-rich olive oil and white tea to help combat the damage of free radicals and signs of aging, hyaluronic acid and squalane to hydrate the skin and lupine protein extract to help increase the skin’s firmness and elasticity.
•Improves skin texture & clarity

•Nourishes & hydrates the skin
•Improves skin elasticity & firmness
•Decreases the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles
•Calms & soothes the skin
•Improves skin barrier function
•98.89% natural
•Dermatologist-tested
Allergy-tested
•Perfect for all skin types
This reminds me of the little jars my mom used. The formula looks heavy, but it's very light and goes on so smooth. It takes little bit for it to absorb in your skin and made my face feel greasy until then. But by the next moring, my face felt nice and smooth.
Terralina Body Lotion (8 oz)
Lightly scented. Sandalwood, barley extracts, olive and shea butter to provide the ultimate hydration, while jojoba and soy-based ceramide protect skin and lock-in moisture.
•Moisturizes, nourishes & hydrates the skin

•Improves skin barrier function
•Leaves skin soft, smooth & protected
•99.95% natural
•Contains light, natural fragrance
Another good product, is this lotion. I love shea butter lotions (and soaps) since it helps with my dry itchy skin int he colder months. I don't use a lot of lotions every day, since most I find do not absorb quickly, I don't like feeling lotiony while I have to wait for it to dry. This lotion took a little bit of time to do dry also.

It also came with a Soy Tea-light Candle and a 100% Recycled Gift Box.

I am excited to try the Gentle Facial Exfoliator! I love how other products work so much better on freshly exfoliated skin, as well as the glow my skin has when I've used a good exfoliator, so I'm really interested in trying out Terralina's exfoliating product!

Thanks!
