Overview:

Mad Hippie is an all natural skin care company (as if you couldn’t tell from the name) that started out in Portland, Maine. The company says “Our goal has always been to make the safest, most effective products utilizing scientifically advanced actives coupled with Mother Nature’s finest antioxidants.” The company is so confident that you’ll love their stuff; they will give you 60 days to try it out and if you don’t like it, you can return it for your money back.

The Good:

Mad Hippie has gotten positive reviews from Truth in Aging readers, so much so that we began to carry their products in our shop. When Amy reviewed the Vitamin C Serum, she said “The hyaluronic acid plumps the skin nicely. And after using about half the bottle I really started noticing some changes in my skin. So many of the brown spots faded that I felt a lot less self conscious without some makeup on to even my skin tone.” The site allows users to see all of the ingredients, with some explanations as not all of us know what Matrixyl 3000 is and what it can do for you. Prices are on the moderate side, at about $15 for the face cleanser to $33 for the Vitamin C Serum.

The Bad:

Not all of Mad Hippies products have been hits with us. Despite solid, well known ingredients in the “No more Crows Feet,” Marta found that the product caused more harm than good to her skin. It could be an isolated incident but it is worth noting. Also they need more products, with a roster of Vitamin C serum, Cleanser, Face Cream, and Eye Cream- there is still more that we could use. Maybe something focused on men, whole body lotions, neck creams, and more.

The Truth:

Mad Hippie is a simple company offering products with complex, but good ingredients. That combination is safe and effective but it leaves us wanting more products from the brand. We see potential in them. The price tag isn’t too steep and customers seem genuinely happy, overall, with the results from Mad Hippie. If you’re looking into cleansers or need something to help deal with photoaging and not looking to spend a ton, Mad Hippie just may be the route to take. Currently they aren’t available in too many stores but you can order it online.
