I am currently in love or, rather I should say, my SKIN is in love with this award winning organic skin care line from Hungary. All of Eminence products are made with fresh fruit pulps, plants and exotic spices that you can actually SEE and SMELL I am telling you guys, their products smell so delicious, I literally want to eat them especially their fresh fruit masques. The whip moisturizers are to die for because they are super velvety to the touch and the texture is incrediable when applied to the skin. You know, I bet I could probably taste/eat the product because everything is organic and natural :) These products do not contain any water (meaning no contamination) and everything is hand picked/hand made in small batches (unbelievable!!) AND the whole line is free of parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate and harsh chemicals. This means, I am getting a product that is jam packed full of natural goodness = antioxidants and vitamins which are super duper nutritious for my skin.
The VERY first time I went to purchase some Eminence products was for the Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant. A girl friend of mine (whom has excellent milky white skin like egg tofu:) was raving how much she adored the Eminence line. She had a facial done at Solace Spa at Kits using the organic line. So, I thought I would surprise her by getting it for her birthday and I am so glad I went to the store called SHIFEON in Oakridge Mall (Vancouver, BC) because the girl that was helping me was (and still is )very kind enough to give me samples (just so I can try out the products for myself)— boy was I EVER glad she gave me a sample because I went right back after 2 weeks, and got the full sized product (which cost $48). It may be pricey for some people but I really love when a product does what it claims: to brighten and smooth the skin for a radiant complexion.
I cannot wait to do a review of this gentle exfoliate for you guys because you will love the key ingredients (finally, ingredients I can ACTUALLY pronounce):
oatmeal (literally my skin’s BFF:)
biocomplex (Vitamin A, C, E, Co-enzyme Q10, Alpha Lipoic Acid)
Just a quick note regarding the store SHIFEON, it is a beauty store that has one side of its store’s wall, selling expensive perfumes/cologne and the opposite side of the wall sells exclusive spa-only skin products and high end skin care products such as Darphin and Valmont. I should also add that SHIFEON at the Oakridge Mall location, performs mini spa like facials (??) because I saw a women come out looking all dewy skinned and glowly; she was thanking one of the girls for the amazing facial. The store looks small from the outside but I believe the back is probably where the spa rooms are. The girls in there are very nice and more than happy to help you with product knowledge (and give you samples hehe).
While I was waiting for the HBOO to come and pick me up, I decided to pick up the free Eminence 2011 Summer Ed pamphlet to read. I read through their never ending products, while practically drooling over the fresh ingrediants found in the products such as the sugar plum moisturizer/cherry moisturizer /pink grapefruit masque/ blueberry masque etc While drooling over the products, I was telling myself not to purchase anything except for what I came for– the Strawberry exfoliate because I really am trying to cut back on purchasing too many skin care products, as I already have way too many still unopen ^_^
Yes, I am a complete SKIN CARE (esp face masks) JUNKIE to the max…always researching for the next best advance skin care. I am no professional but my rule of thumb is to research like crazy before I actually purchase anything because when I purchase a product for my skin, I see it as a serious investment for my skin- no joke guys!
So, I admit my curiousity about the line and its GREENESS really caught my “skin’s attention” and because 1). my friend mentioned it and the ‘organic’ line sounded vaguely familiar to me 2). I saw Eminence advertised several times in the beauty magazine, NEW BEAUTY, which by the way is THE ONLY magazine I will ever purchase: http://www.newbeauty.com/
If you have never heard of NEW BEAUTY, it is worth your time to check it out and I already have some girl friends of mine hooked. And it is not so bad because they come out quarterly ($10) so it doesn’t hurt the wallet too much and it is my aclaimed Holy Grail magazine <3
So yes…..I caved in and this is how my youtube review came about on Eminence Exclusive Rose Collection ($69) =) as much as I enjoy writing, I really enjoy filming everything and actually showing people the products itself.
So Please Enjoy and comment =)
Stay tuned for more Eminence reviews:

P.S: Eminence’s Beyond Organic Line uses Biodynamic farming techniques, which is (my opinion) by far the friendliest environmental way to agriculture. This is probably a really good plus for people who are very ‘green’ conscience.
