Tilth Beauty Review

A little while ago, I was given the opportunity to try a few Tilth Beauty products for free in exchange for a review. You may recognize them from the affiliate ad on the right sidebar and yes, I do have affiliate links within this post. Even though I am an affiliate of them and I did receive the products mentioned below for free, my opinions are and always will be 100% honest and 100% my own. I am under no obligation to write a positive review and I would never accept something that required me to. Now, let's start!

First, a little about the company:

Now, the actual review:
One quick thing I just want to say first is that they all had really nice packaging.

The cleanser has a cover for the pump which is easy to take off. This I appreciated because it helps keep the pump clean and dust-free. The cleanser itself has a pearly-gold color and needs multiple pumps to get some out. After that, you only need to add a little water and rub your hands together before applying onto your face. It has a clean scent, which I liked, and has a thick liquid-y consistency. It gets nice and foamy quite easily and applies nicely. It felt almost creamy on my skin. It actually smelled a little like ginger ale when I was applying. It rinsed off easily and left my skin feeling nice, clean, and supple, but a bit dry. Overall, I liked it and I would recommend it.

The toner has a screw cap and has a blue tint to it. It takes a few tips of the bottle to get enough on my cotton pad and I could smell the berries. I wiped it on my freshly cleaned face and the berry scent became stronger and seemed sweeter. It applied easily and after wiping, my skin felt a bit dry and a bit sticky. I didn't like it as much as the cleanser and personally, I wouldn't recommend it. Perhaps I used too much or perhaps the cleanser wasn't thoroughly rinsed off, but I just didn't like the sticky feeling.

*I retested it and made sure that the cleanser was definitely completely rinsed off and I found that there wasn't a sticky feeling at all. So, it was really a mistake on my part, so now, after retesting, I would say that I would recommend it. But, if you are a person who doesn't like scents for their skincare products, I would stay away from this because the scent is quite strong.

Finally, the Sea Origin Serum.
The serum has a clear 'click' or 'pop-off' cover/cap. It has a clear color and needs a few pumps before it comes out. It has a thick liquid-y consistency similar to the cleanser. It has a fresh scent that I can't really describe, but I liked it. While applying, it had a ginger-like smell and my skin also felt a bit sticky. After applying, my skin felt dry and a tiny bit sticky. Overall, I don't know if I'd recommend it or not. It really depends on whether the stickiness was due to the toner that may have been unabsorbed by the time I applied the serum or the serum itself. 

After all three though, my skin looked pretty good. It still needed a little more moisture, though.
