Summer is in full swing which means all the bugs and pests and things that make our skin crazy are out as well. I don’t know about you, but having itchy skin or itchy bug bites is one of the worse feelings. I have to keep scratching until I get relief. BUT, now I don’t have to keep scratching! With my package of various Marie’s Original Formulas soaps, sprays and lotions, my skin feels so much better!

We received all these great Skin Care products from Marie’s Original Formulas!
Poison Ivy Soap:
The most sought after all-natural product of its kind in the USA, the poison ivy relief soap was developed over 25 years ago to provide instant relief from skin irritation caused by poison Ivy, Oak and Sumac. The soap contains a unique blend of white willow, an herb with anti-inflammatory properties, and sassafras, a natural antihistamine to soothe and provide itch relief. Another natural ingredient that makes soap effective is bentonite clay, which pulls irritating toxins from the skin.
My hubby used this soap a few times after working outside and getting into some poison Ivy. The relief came within minutes and he has been telling all his buddies about it!
Acne Control Soap:
Producing a rich white lather, this gentle soap is an effective natural treatment for acne. Containing a mixture of organic herbs that create a natural form of salicylic acid, this product treats acne without drying the skin. Bentonite clay, another notable ingredient of the soap, naturally pulls oils, toxins, and other irritants from the skin, clearing up clogged pores.
One side of this soap has a textured side to slough off the dead skin. The other side is gentle and smooth. My 16 year old has been using it for a few weeks. I have noticed a big difference in his acne. Not only has it been reduced, but his skin is less oily. His only complaint about this acne soap is that is smells like bird food. 🙂
Itch Relief Soap:
This all-natural itch relief soap provides instant relief from various skin irritations including insect bites, rosacea, chicken pox and shingles. Free of SLS, which is known to exacerbate irritation due to its drying effect, our soap nourishes and protects the skin from becoming dried out. Featuring noni and white willow, herbs known for soothing irritation and swelling, this soap contains pure bentonite clay and organic oat bran to pull toxins from the skin, as well as sassafras, a natural antihistamine to calm the itch.
If you have ever had multiple insect bites or worse yet, chiggers, you know that the itching is relentless. This soap helps calm the itch and make your skin feel so much better!
Intense Skin Repair Cream:
This is Marie’s most popular cream made with a unique blend of essential oils and natural herbs. It is used to treat burns, cuts, bed sores, cellulitis, and diaper rashes. With antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, this product does far more than just offer pain relief, encouraging skin regeneration and tissue repair. Applied beneath our wound powder, this cream helps to elasticize, oxygenate and lubricate skin that has been damaged by wounds, burns and stitches, and also helps prevent scarring. This unique product provides skin with the essential nourishment it needs for restoration and repair.
I am a little uncoordinated- OK a lot, and I tend to burn myself while using the convection oven. I used this Skin Repair cream and it made a huge difference. I didn’t even get a scar on my forearm after it healed! I also use it on scratches on my arms from our 5 month old puppy. The only drawback to using this cream is that it smells so good, the puppy wants to lick it off right after I put it on!
Advanced Scar Treatment:
This elasticizing cream lubricates and oxygenates skin that is healing from wounds, burns and stitches, and helps prevent scarring. When used consistently, this product is very effective in improving the appearance of existing scars. With a unique blend of essential oils and herbs, this cream nourishes the skin, restoring it to a state of optimal health.
My son has some scarring on his back from stretch marks. He grew taller and thinner over a few short months and the marks were very obvious. I have been using this cream on a few most noticeable marks on his back, it has made a difference already.
Bite Relief Spray:
Our natural, chemical-free bite relief spray helps soothe the itchiness and swelling caused by insect bites. This herbal remedy contains a powerful dose of cone flowers and star of Bethlehem, which draw toxins from the skin and calm the itch. The spray is also infused with North American grown herbs for anti-inflammatory properties to help reduce painful swelling.
Out of all the products, I have used the Bite Relief spray the most. Living on 7.5 acres in New England, we have lots of bugs, mosquitoes, black flies etc. I get bit multiple times when I’m out in the front yard playing with the puppy. The spray really works! It takes away the itch and the redness and swelling! I have even been bringing it with us when we go hiking and camping.
If you are looking for All Natural, Herbal Remedies for skin problems, Marie’s Original Formulas has it all! It’s 100% pure, homeopathic and made with pure plants. It doesn’t have any added fragrances, dyes or other additives that actually make your skin feel worse. They even have products for nail fungus, soaps for Eczema and so much more!
Our two favorite products are the Bite Relief Spray and the Acne Control soap. These 2 products have been life-changers. Teenagers are so self-conscious about their skin. The Acne Control Soap has made my son feel more confident in this own skin. The Bite Relief Spray works so well, I can’t imagine not ever having it. It’s a must-have product for every family’s skin care regimen!
