There’s been a lot of buzz around the words natural and organic in the beauty industry since the green movement has started take over. While these words are aimed at something good, I feel that a lot of companies use them widely for marketing efforts. (Eh hem tv commercials… ) So unless you do your research and know your product info, you might get fooled. Since a lot of companies use these words frivolously, it’s refreshing to have a brand like Eminence that’s committed to being the greenest company possible. In fact, this isn’t a brand that just jumped on the band wagon, they’ve been doing this for years.
In my eyes, Eminence skin care has always been a true icon in the skin care world because of their sheer simplicity, deliciousness and true brand ethics. I remember at 17, as fresh meat in the esthetician world, I was mesmerized at their variety of yummy masks and treatments at their station at a skin care and cosmetics convention. That booth opened up an entire world of direction for me. How green are they? They’re dedicated to growing their own ingredients in Hungary using geothermal heating powered by solar and wind energy and manually plant and harvest the plants. They also use post consumer recycled materials to create packaging truly setting themselves apart from the rest in organic skin care working towards a greener, healthier planet. That’s just the tip of the iceberg.
So they’re really green. But what can they do for your skin? Their skin care line is gloriously full of essential mineral nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants that are 100% organically grown and hand-picked that is suitable for all skin types. When I say all skin types, it’s true. Any skin condition, they can help. Lucky for me, I had the pleasure of adding the Lemon Grass Cleanser, Coconut Mask and the Guava and Bamboo Moisturizer to my coveted beauty collection.
What I love most about the Lemon Grass Cleanser is the faintly refreshing smell of lemon, eucalyptus and fresh grass. The texture is luxurious and coconut oils replenish dehydrated and irritated complexions. I’m completely obsessed over the satin glass bottle it comes in. For any beauty junkie, this one sits proudly on the shelf.
Anything that smells tropical or like coconut, I’m a sucker for. Naturally, using the Guava and Bamboo Age-Defying Moisturizer and Coconut Cream Masque is like taking an island vacation. I’ve been using the Coconut Cream Masque whenever my skin needs a pick me up. I used this and the guava moisturizer before a charity event and I was complimented at least 3 times on how my skin was glowing. My favorite attributes of these are the consistencies. They aren’t drying, they aren’t too oily, it’s the perfect combination for maintaining skin firmness.
