Customer Reviews

Been using the [Refresh] cleanser, [Refresh] moisturiser, African potato cream and clear skin gel for over a year now 🥺 can’t live without it! Down to earth has really changed my skin care game! 💕 love your brand to bits!

Last year around November 2021, during an indoor soccer match, I was fighting for the ball and I was pushed and fell on the astro turf and I sustained a nasty graze to both knees. My right knee was a lot worse and I needed to treat the graze daily.
After the initial oozing had stopped and the roastie had started to heal, I used Down To Earth African Potato Skin Cream and within 4 weeks the graze healed up quite nicely. There was always going to be scarring but the cream lessened the ferocity of it. I would definitely recommend this cream!

Spending hours in the garden over the weekend is one of life's simple pleasures - even better when you're barefoot! But this means that by the end of the day, my feet are in an absolute state, and my hands don't look much better.

After a thorough scrubbing, I always reach for your African Potato Cream and apply it liberally to my elbows, hands and feet - paying special attention to my heels and knuckles. It's a fantastic moisturiser, is absorbed quickly and I find it really helps soothe the aches and pains in my joints.
