When I transitioned to Clean Beauty and Skincare, a few brands seemed to pop up over and over. Earth Harbor Naturals was one of the brands I saw pretty frequently and was most interested in. I swear in a previous life, I was a mermaid, so I was instantly drawn to the sea based skincare.
Earth Harbor was founded by Ali Perry-Hatch, MPH who is a certified health toxicologist and herbalist. Ali wanted to create safe, non-toxic skincare products that were effective while using superior botanical ingredients from both the sea and the land.
All of the products are 100% natural and made without synthetic ingredients, GMOs, gluten, soy, toxins, fillers, animal testing, chemical additives, artificial dyes, synthetic fragrances, synthetic preservatives, parabens, phthalates, sulfates, nanoparticles, mineral oils, and petroleum.
The one thing that really drew me into the products was the names and stories behind each product. However, beyond how beautiful they all are, they are very effective as you will soon see in my reviews. Speaking of reviews, let’s get right into the product reviews.
ALOHA LOVE Nourishing Cream Cleanser
What They Say:
Feel the Aloha with this enlivening, creamy formula that gently purifies + nourishes skin with replenishing Seaweed Vitamins, antioxidant-rich Green Tea, and smoothing Hibiscus Extract from the isles of Hawaii. She offers lasting hydration with her Aloe Leaf Juice and plant oils of Olive & Coconut while invoking self-love as an effective, non-foaming cleanser that softens, renews and brightens skin.
The first thing you notice about this product is the texture. It is a bit more milky than it is a cream. It is not as thick or as heavy as you would expect from a cream cleanser, which I love. The milky texture does a great job at cleansing skin without drying it out. In fact, skin feels more moisturized after cleansing with this.
The Seaweed extract is full of skin loving and nourishing amino acids and vitamins, such as Vitamins A, B, C and E. I have found this to be a very light but moisturizing cleanser that does a great job of cleansing while also soothing my sensitive skin.
TIDAL ROSE Crystal Hydration Toner
What They Say:
A natural toner, hydration-enhancer and makeup setter, Tidal Rose infuses nutrient-dense Seaweed with high-vibration Rose Quartz Rosewater, antioxidant-rich White Tea Extract, and youth-preserving Hibiscus Extract. She locks in moisture, softens skin, and restores pH balance while metaphysically balancing chi — all of which are vital for having fresh, rejuvenated skin.
The Quartz-infused Rose Flower Water in this toner is super hydrating. I find this does a great job at balancing the PH of skin while leaving skin feeling soft and hydrated. I love the gorgeous scent of this and use this in the morning as my toner as well as throughout the day to freshen up and re-hydrate my skin.
AQUA AURA Reparative Eye Creme
What They Say:
Inspired by the iridescent blue-green crystal known for healing and strengthening, Aqua Aura Reparative Eye Creme is restorative and awakening. Featuring a brightening + plumping combination of Seaweed Collagen, Blue Tansy, potent antioxidants, replenishing plant oils and soothing actives for firmer, stronger-looking skin around the eye area.
Formulated with a powerhouse of botanicals to help slow down the signs of aging under and around the eyes such as fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles, puffiness and sun damage. The result is a rested, more youthful appearance.
Wow, the first you thing you notice with this is the unique texture. I have to say that the texture of all of the Earth Harbor products are unique and luxurious feeling. This one has a texture different than your standard eye cream. It almost sticks to itself (see what I mean in the video below) but it absorbs beautifully into the skin without any tacky residue left behind.
This has done an amazing job around the eye area to reduce puffiness and darkness, while leaving my eye area smooth, hydrated and plumped. This definitely leaves the eyes looking more youthful and radiant.
AURORA Superfood Luminance Ampoule
What They Say:
A soothing, ethereal glow of the Aurora Borealis sweeping across the sky — captured in a bottle. Give your face illuminating superfood nutrition with harmonizing Sea Greens + Cannabis Sativa Hemp Oil and pacifying Grapeseed Oil + Neem Seed Extract. Let Aurora’s intoxicating, therapeutic aroma of Magnolia Blossoms further transport you into her healing phenomena. She is simply the most divine way to serenely energize and soothe skin while inducing dewy luminance.
I was not sure what to expect when I received this and it took me a few days to get around to using it but I am sure glad I did. First, this smells so beautiful and aquatic. Second, the texture (again with the gorgeous textures) are so lightweight and it absorbs easily into the skin.
I totally credit this product with really soothing my skin while also adding more radiance and clarity. I didn’t want to jump on the bandwagon of Hemp Oil skincare products, but the Cannabis Sativa Hemp Oil is totally nourishing, soothing and hydrating. Between this and the Hemp Oil from Truly Beauty, I have noticed my eczema has completely healed and I have not had a flare up once since using these two products.
In addition to the Hemp, the Magnolia, Chamomile, Rose, and Lavender in this product are super soothing. This product has done a great job of soothing and healing the inflammation of eczema in my skin. This is going to be a holy grail product for me! I use this both day and night and it works well all day.
CALYPSO Rare Rejuvenating Oil
What They Say:
Like the beautiful water nymph, Calypso Rare Rejuvenating Oil is an enchanting blend of elegant botanical oils and alluring skin-renewing properties. You have just discovered the do-it-all treasure that every skin type and skin concern dream of. Calypso’s concentrated nutrients and innovative moisture barrier leave skin soft, lifted, and deeply rehydrated with a refreshed appearance and texture — all of which place her at the helm of every serious skincare ritual.
Calypso brilliantly hydrates and replenishes your cherished skin by transforming each cell through elevated levels of Sea Berry vitamins, CoQ10 antioxidants, Chia Seed fatty acids, and Cranberry phytosterols. Her quick-absorption and exotic aroma, reminiscent of a flower garden after an island rainstorm, make her utterly sensorial and tangibly effective.
This face oil works so well in conjunction with Aurora mentioned above. While Aurora is very soothing this is super nourishing. This is a bit heavier than Aurora, so I usually put this on top of Aurora at night. Although, this is not the heaviest of the face oils I typically use.
As I mention in the video below, this has the most gorgeous scent ever (not fragrance but natural plant and flower essences) and even if it didn’t work for my skin, I would still use this because it smells so fabulous. However, it is so hydrating and nourishing for the skin that it is just as effective as you could expect. This does a beautiful job of hydrating and plumping skin.
SIREN SILK Multi-Tasking Hydration Creme
What They Say:
Inspired by the captivating beauty of mythical Sirens, Siren Silk is a purely natural whipped creme that *actually* performs — singing sweetly of hydrating, resurfacing and rejuvenating while she feeds skin with a rich medley of Sea Retinol, Superherbs, superfood antioxidants, and plumping omegas. She’s your BFF when you need deep moisture and lives to make your skin look and feel like pure silk — soft, smooth, and subtly dewy.
Formulated to be an intensely moisturizing and ultra-perfecting cream concentrate that offers immediate improvement in the filling of fine lines & wrinkles. Siren Silk is the ultimate night treatment for all skin types. For daytime use, she is perfect for dry/mature/sensitive skin.
This is yet another Earth Harbor product with a unique and gorgeous texture. The whipped texture of this product glides on the skin and readily absorbs to leave skin feeling protected, nourished, soft and smooth. I’ve found this product to leave my skin feeling protected while giving a more radiant and dewy finish. I have also noticed my skin appears smoother and firmer.
My final Thoughts
All of the products combined and used regularly have definitely left my skin looking more youthful, plumped, smooth and radiant. Since adding these into my skincare routine, my skin has never looked better. My eczema is pretty much gone and I have not had any flare ups in awhile since starting with Earth Harbor products. In addition to calmer, more soothed skin, my skin is more radiant and glowing.
