Eminence Organics Skin Care Product Review

For Christmas I received some amazing products from Eminence Organic Skin Care that I have been using since and wanted to review for you! I first discovered Eminence years ago at a day spa long before I started using all natural and organic skincare products. I received a seasonal Pumpkin Eminence Facial and it was the best facial I’ve ever had! My skin was glowing and hydrated for weeks and ever since I was sold on their amazing products and ingredients.

Eminence Believes in:

  • Organic
  • Natural
  • Biodynamic®
  • Sustainable
  • Cruelty Free

Eminence Says No To:

  • Parabens
  • Phthalates
  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
  • Propylene Glycol
  • Animal Testing

Here’s a little bit more about their Biodynamic, Organic and Natural ingredients straight from their website:

Originating from a balanced, holistic view of the universe, Biodynamic® farming practices regard the farm, the plants and the animals as a self-supporting ecosystem that lives and breathes. It renders fruits and herbs that are unusually high in nutrients and active compounds then harnesses these potent ingredients into a collection of products that are the ultimate in pureness and results-driven skin care.

Seeds are planted and crops are harvested following the lunar cycle so that when the tides are high, roots receive the most moisture and goodness.

As an alternative to harsh pesticides, the farm uses herbal teas and plant friendly honey traps from local bees as natural insect repellents ensuring that all Biodynamic® ingredients are farmed as naturally as possible.

Biodynamic® ingredients are void of all chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Only natural medicinal herbs and mineral composts are used to enhance the soil and ignite powerful growth forces in the plants from roots to tips.

Healthy skin is a reflection of what you feed your body, inside and out. That’s why we source premium ingredients from organic farms worldwide to ensure our products are the purest and most potent.

Organic skin care is rooted in a holistic approach to farming and production. Unfortunately, modern agriculture robs the land of nutrients and often results in genetically modified ingredients. Choosing organic ingredients ensures that there are no harsh chemicals added. Our products do not contain harmful chemicals like added Parabens, Petrolatum, Mineral Oils, Propylene Glycol or Sodium Lauryl Sulfate.

Our products are made with fresh fruit pulps, plants and exotic spices. This makes them incredibly rich in nutrients, so they are not only the healthiest choice for you, but also the most effective, results-oriented collection around. Vitamins are captured in their all-natural fresh base, offering dramatic results as actual seeds, pulps and peels impart regenerative and healing powers that only nature can produce. The precious ingredients are hand-picked and hand-mixed in small batches and combined with thermal hot spring water to create products that contain potent healing and beautifying properties.

My Product Reviews

Bright Skin Licorice Root Booster Serum

2278_bright_skin_licorice_root_booster_serum.jpg

A blogger I have followed for years raved about this product for helping with her “mustache,” meaning her hyperpigmentation/melasma conveniently located above her upper lip. I too suffer from this problem as well as some discoloration on my forehead. This product along with the rest I reviewed is an Eminence Best Seller.

Key Ingredients

  • Licorice: brightens skin appearance
  • Natural Hydroquinone Alternative Complex: brightening with African potato and tara tree; antioxidant rich
  • Lactic Acid: sloughs off dead skin cells to rejuvenate the appearance of skin
  • Gigawhite™: brightens the look of skin
  • Stone Crop: hydrating and nourishing for uneven skin tones
  • Lemongrass: tones and cleanses skin
  • BioComplex: a booster of antioxidants, Coenzyme Q10, and Alpha Lipoic Acid to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve the appearance of skin

My Experience: I’m definitely not a fan of licorice taste or smell in general, but I’ll take one for the team if the product works! I’ve been using this for 2 months pretty regularly and I have noticed a small amount of overall lightening so far. I think we all expect results to be dramatic, but I think it will take time and continued use. I can say that this serum really helps exfoliate gently. The serum glides on easily. You can just put it on your trouble spots, but I actually have been putting the serum on my entire face under moisturizer. I do notice that it tones and improves the overall appearance of the skin, probably in combination with the other amazing products reviewed below.

Stone Crop Gel Wash Cleanser

Key Ingredients

  • Stone Crop: hydrating and nourishing for uneven skin tones
  • Soap Base (free of sodium lauryl sulphate): cleanses and softens
  • Shea Butter: calming and restorative agent

 

My Experience: I was excited to try this gel cleanser because of the ingredients that are ideal for uneven skin tones. That’s definitely my skin! A little goes a long way with this gel and a little water. It lathers nicely and is soothing and gentle. It rinses off pretty easily making the skin feel clean and soft. I’ve struggled with other cleansers feeling like it takes forever to rinse off, but this one only takes a few seconds and splashes of water. I have also noticed it’s excellent at removing makeup as well. My skin feels clean, refreshed, hydrated and soft afterwards.

Stone Crop Whip Moisturizer

Key Ingredients

 

  • Stone Crop: hydrating and nourishing for uneven skin tones
  • Lemon: high amounts of Vitamin C, antioxidant
  • Corn Germ Oil: softens and enriches the skin
  • BioComplex: a booster of antioxidants, Coenzyme Q10, and Alpha Lipoic Acid to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve the appearance of skin

My Experience: This moisturizer is pretty thick and heavy going on, also green which was just surprising to me for a moisturizer ;)…but it actually absorbs into the skin pretty quickly and doesn’t feel sticky, greasy or heavy afterwards in any way. It moisturizes just enough to balance the skin and I love all the powerful ingredients especially the high amounts of vitamin C which my skin always seems to respond well to.

Neroli Age Corrective Eye Serum

  • Neroli Oil: regenerating, refreshing and hydrating; fragrant skin softener
  • Coconut Milk: moisturizes, nourishes and softens the skin
  • Natural Retinol Alternative Complex: contains chicory root oligosaccharides and tara tree; smooths the appearance of wrinkles
  • PhytoCellTec™ Swiss Green Apple Stem Cells: rejuvenating plant stem cell concentrate; promotes the look of skin’s elasticity and delays the appearance of visible signs of aging
  • Carrot Extract: antioxidant; nutrient; source of vitamin A; nourishes and regenerates the skin with carotene oils

My Experience: This eye serum actually surprised me a bit. I’m used to using a thicker eye cream so the texture was interesting and different. Definitely a serum, but a creamy serum that glided on nicely under my eyes. My skin drank this stuff up! It’s super hydrating and noticeably smooths the appearance of fine lines even after just one use. I will purchase this again and again and would rank this as one of the top 3 eye serums/creams I have ever tried!

A great way to try out the Eminence Organic Line is to buy one of their Must Have Starter Kits. I can’t recommend this organic line of skincare enough. Although a little pricier, a little goes a long way with all of their products that I have tried. Eminence is only available in spas and salons so you cannot purchase off their website, however I have purchased items through Amazon or you can do a spa search on their website to find a spa near you that carries the line.

Lots of love and good health,

Tasha, The Non-Toxic Newbie
