Radiant & Refreshed

“Even though this is my third go-round, I often find myself gazing upon my five-month-old in wonder. I am in awe of his little hands and chubby feet, his pinchable jowls, and most especially his new and perfect skin. Now, my skin isn't in terrible shape, but running around on less than a full night's sleep with three little ones in tow takes its toll. So I was very interested to learn more about Pangea Organics, whose eco-friendly skin care products invite you to "discover nature's youthful radiance."
From a glance at their website, I gathered that Pangea Organics is a company devoted to the integrity of their products and processes. But I knew they really meant business when my Radiance Gift Set arrived in a 100% compostable, biodegradable, plantable (the makings of a spruce tree are woven inside the fibers of the box) gift box, made from a zero-waste process using 100% post-consumer newsprint, without glues and dyes! And when I saw the contents inside (facial cleanser, facial scrub, facial mask, lip balm, and eye cream), I knew my skin was in for a serious treat.

Each product packs an impressive list of plant-based ingredients, antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, and essential oils – you can practically smell the earth in their herbal scents. The benefits of various key ingredients – such as adzuki bean to clarify and exfoliate in the facial scrub – are highlighted on the product labels.

The Egyptian Calendula & Blood Orange Facial Cleanser, Egyptian Geranium With Adzuki Bean & Cranberry Facial Scrub, and Japanese Matcha Tea With Acai & Goji Berry Facial Mask are my favorite products. The silky consistency of the cleanser makes it easy to apply and I like the cooling effect it has on my skin. I also appreciate that the product doesn't irritate or sting my eyes like soaps and cleansers I've used before. The facial scrub was so effective that I immediately had my husband try it. We were both impressed by the smooth results and that it's gentle enough for daily use. The facial mask adds the finishing touch and together, the three products have a spa-like effect: my skin feels completely nourished - smooth, soft, hydrated, and yes, absolutely radiant - and I feel refreshed. It’s just what this mama needs at the end of a busy day with the kids.”
