First off, the founder, Lauren, is a true gem! I had a problem with my order and she bent over backwards to fix it. She really, truly cares. You can also tell she truly cares about the communities she's working with in Uganda which is very special. I have no association with the company at all but she created huge brand loyalty before I even got to the product!
I'm also happy to report that I love the Creme de la Tree itself!
I have normal (not too dry or oily) but extremely breakout prone skin that is also showing signs of aging as I near my mid-thirties. I've been using this for close to two months now and it has not exacerbated my breakouts! If anything the ones that do pop up seem to be smaller and are healing faster. It's still early to see any effect on my fine lines/wrinkles/forehead creases but my skin is sooo soft and much brighter and more even! I think it has also softened some of my light scarring from previous breakouts.
It's a really emollient cream that's also a bit occlusive from the Shea and really locks in the moisturize and helps my skin barrier. The scent is very mild and disappears quickly after it sinks in.
I've found that warming it in my hand then lightly patting it onto slightly damp skin gives me the best results. It takes a few minutes to completely sink in but even then it doesn't look greasy, just dewy. I use a full pump at night and a little less in the morning under sunscreen.
As a side note, I used it consistently for over a month then my second unopened bottle completely vanished! I was terrified it had gotten tossed with Christmas packaging or something and was devastated! I didn't have it for about three weeks and my skin started to revert to being a bit rougher and dryer in texture. I eventually found it had slipped behind a bathroom cupboard and was thrilled when it only took a few days for my skin to soften and become so much brighter again! Seeing the before and after twice completely cemented how incredibly well it works for my skin.
Overall would definitely recommend trying it out! I think I've FINALLY found my longterm moisturizer after LOTS of trial and error!
I love the Lope Tree products; especially the Creme de la Tree. Since I started using these products on my skin there is a noticeable difference in how my skin looks and feels. I highly recommend!
Thank you so much Alison!! So happy you are seeing a difference. We saw a difference in our own skin, which is why we wanted to make it available to other!
I can confidently say that purchasing Lope's products is one of the best decisions I've ever made. I use the silk first and the creme on top, and after just a few weeks of nightly use, my redness and wrinkles were minimized by over 50%... it looked like I had gotten botox! I have been using them for months now and continue to see improvement and plumpness. They genuinely heal your skin- I used them after a sunburn and the next morning it looked like I never had one.
Beyond the extremely high quality products, this company also truly lives its mission. The owner sent me a handwritten note with my last order when they were out of the creme, along with a new variety to try as a replacement. When I emailed her about a product she responded right away with an answer that only further confirmed the company's commitment to their harvesters and overall sustainability. Phenomenal customer service and phenomenal products. Thank you Lope Tree!
