Early this week we were introduced to organic makeup in the form of Madara – a certified organic brand from Latvia. I had something else lined up today but I thought I’d tell you about the Madara EcoFace Organic Skincare before you go off to claim your samples this weekend 🙂 The products I was sent were the Madara Ecoface Deep Purifying Foam Cleaner and Deep Comfort Toner – the first 2 steps in any skincare regime.
Madara Deep Purifying Foam Cleanser – RM98/150ml
Now I’m a sucker for foaming cleansers – I love the convenience because you don’t have to do the lathering up, its already done for you with a pump of the bottle. The Madara Deep Purifying Foaming Cleanser does not disappoint in this regard.
The Madara cleanser has a light flower scent which is not disturbing, and cleans the skin a treat. I use it both in the morning and evening and after about 2 weeks, I’m still liking it. I’m also happy to report that I’ve not encountered allergies to this one. Previously I had problems with other organic brands where I developed contact dermatitis after being allergic to some of the ingredients. No problems with this one! 🙂
It might seem pricey off hand but I only use 1 pump each time. From experience with similar foaming cleansers of other brands, I can expect to get 3-4 months of use from this one.
Pros: Cleans skin well, Feels gentle, Lovely soft foam
Cons: Some might consider it pricey
Ingredient list: Ingredients: Aqua, Rosa Damascena (Rose) Distillate*, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Alcohol, Glycerin*, Surcose Cocoate, Achillea Millefolium (Yarrow) Extract*, Hypericum Perforatum (St. John’s Wort) Extract*, Calendula Officinalis (Calendula) Extract*, Chamomilla Recutita (Camomile) Extract*
Madara Deep Comfort Toner – RM88/200ml
Step 2 of your skincare regime is the toner. Madara organic skincare has 3 different toners to suit your skintype. Mine is the Madara Deep Comfort Toner for dry to very dry skins.
I use a cotton pad to wipe the Deep Comfort toner over my skin and for some reason, my skin feels cleaner but yet not dry. Its not quite moisturizing but it doesn’t leave me feeling like a husk so its quite nice really. I’ve been using this for slightly over 2 weeks and have barely made a dent in it – strange but true.
Pros: Skin feels clean but not dry
Cons: Some might consider it pricey, Not moisturizing
Ingredients: Aqua, Rosa Damascena (Rose) Distillate*, Anthemis Nobilis (Camomile) Flower Water*, Glycerin*
Madara is available at all Bodybar outlets and online. To be honest I’ve been quite impressed with the Madara Organic line. The packaging looks good and the product seems to work well enough for me (without causing undue allergic reactions or breaking me out).
If I were thinking of switching over to Organic skincare, I’d be sure to place Madara Ecoface in my skincare list. But remember, just because its organic and natural doesn’t mean that it will work wonderfully for everyone. We’re still different 🙂
I like these 2 products from Madara but I could easily live without them as I consider cleanser and toner “disposable”. The one I do really like is the Regenerating Night Cream which I will feature next week. 🙂
So if you are going to check out this line, do drop a line to let us know what you think of it eh? 🙂
