Talk About It - Earth Fixx Market

I’ve been a huge fan and very loyal customer to a specific online natural and organic beauty megastore for years and years. However, this store recently changed it’s pricing and shipping policies and is no longer very transparent about their practices so they’ve lost my business. I was so happy when Earth Fixx Market reached out to me because their online shop filled the void in my life and gave me a new online shopping destination to explore.

Derek Randall and his sister Kellie Bellinger founded Earth Fixx Market in 2015 with the intention of providing consumers with access to safe and high-quality organic and natural products, focusing on stocking brands who share their values of wanting to protect the Earth. They are both animal lovers, like me, and they have made a firm commitment to donate 10% of their net proceeds to Earth Fix Project to help protect animals and the environment.

Like I mentioned above, Kellie reached out to me and offered me a chance to try out their online store. I picked out a few products and placed an order. While I was placing my order I made a very embarrassing mistake and Kellie helped me right away and resolved the issue so I’m happy to say that their customer service is incredible and good customer service matters to me.

The website itself is made up of page after page of natural and nontoxic products from all categories. It’s pretty easy to use although I would say it’s best if you know what kind of product you’re intending to buy. Although, isn’t that the truth will all online shops? You can browse for hours discovering interesting products, whether you’re looking for beauty products, herbal supplements, snacks, pet products, whatever!

The shipping took about a little over a week and everything was well packaged when it arrived.

The first product I selected was the Devita Moisture Tint in Light. I’ve heard so many good things about Devita over the years but had yet to try anything and since summer is coming and I like to spend as much time outdoors in the warmer months as humanly possible I like to use tinted moisturizers with SPF generously to keep my skin healthy.

This particular formula is really nice. It feels very cooling on the skin, which is a nice touch, and it feels hydrating and nourishing but also light and airy. The color looks quite odd on first glance since it’s kind of orange but somehow blends beautifully into the skin to provide little coverage but does even out skin tone. I really like to use this product as a primer since it leaves skin soft, smooth, even and provides protection from harsh UVA and UVB rays. It works really well with other products layered on top of it. It even makes my makeup last a lot longer and wear more evenly throughout the day.

It has a slight citrus scent that isn’t heavy and doesn’t linger after application. This has definitely become a staple for me. It’s got a great list of ingredients, is made in the US, has no GMOs, and is completely gluten free as well as cruelty-free.

Next up on the agenda is the Rainbow Research French Green Clay Facial Treatment Mask. This generously-sized 8-ounce tub of pure green clay has become my go-to facial treatment. I’ve always loved using clay on my skin and this one is no exception. This clay becomes a purifying, cleansing, and detoxifying superhero when mixed with your choice of liquid. You can use water, yogurt, egg, lemon juice, honey, oil, avocado or whatever else your heart (or skin) desires. I mostly use water and add in some honey every once in a while. Every single time I use this mask I am left with cleaner, clearer skin that feels beyond soft and appears to glow with clarity. I’m a huge fan! I reach for this powder once or twice a week and it helps decongest and brighten. Love it!

I’ve also been testing out the Fragrance-Free Nature’s Baby Organics Face and Body Moisturizer. This lotion is really nice but I’m not a fan of the packaging, at all. It’s the thinnest, weirdest plastic bottle that I’ve ever seen. It’s kind of hard to use and it gets weirdly crinkled but that doesn’t affect the product inside. I’m always looking for good unscented lotions thanks to my scent sensitivities and dry skin and this one is as good as any other lotion I’ve tried. It still has a bit of a scent but it’s nothing offensive, nor does it last. The lotion is thick and lovely but easily and quickly absorbed. It’s nourishing and hydrating while not being sticky or tacky. I haven’t tried it on my face but my hands love it!

They also carry some of my absolute favorite products like my beloved Evolution Salt Sole Bath Soap in Peppermint (that I have repurchased so many times I’ve lost count but it’s definitely more than 12!) and the Derma E Microdermabrasion Scrub (which I'm obsessed with and have also purchased many times!). They have so many awesome products!
