I've been using this for about four weeks now and have to say that I like it a lot!

Size: a generous 1oz jar

Smell: a light jasminey scent that lingers a bit after application--i the smell!!

Texture: light and creamy

Packaging: round, clear, plastic jar with a screw-top lip

Ingredients: Jasmine, St. John's Wort Oil, St. John's Wort Extract, Marigold Oil, Natural Cream Base, Bioflavonoids, Biocomplex™ (Vitamin A, Esther C, Vitamin E, Coenzyme Q10, Alpha Lipoic Acid), Glycine Derivative, Jasmine Oil, Corn Germ (Zea Mays) Oil, Glycerine

Results: This cream does a pretty good job of leaving the skin around my eye area soft and moisturized as well as smoothing fine lines. It did not irritate my eyes at all and the smell is divine! It also seemed to work well with any other eye creams I had (have) going on. I would definitely repurchase! Smile

I'd really like to try this. One of my friends sent me a sample a while ago but it seems that it didn't travel well and it got thick and unusable. I remember liking the scent Smile

Didn't really like this. I found it too thick and heavy - kinda waxy. I like eye cream that feels like it's been absorbed into the skin though rather than a layer over the skin. I do like most of the Eminence masks but so far don't know about their mositurizers.

How long do you think the 1 oz jar will last you?

Most eye creams are 15ml and they last me a good 3-4 months so I'm assuming that a 30ml will last twice as long. I've tried the Herbal Contour Eye cream and I found it very heavy so you would use even less.

It is a generous size although I think it also depends on how much of the product you apply... I really *LOVE* the smell of it and so admittedly apply more than I should and then use the excess on my lips. Laughing It might not last as long for me. On my skin, though, it is not heavy at all and sinks in right away.

I love jasmine smell too Smile.

How is it compare to other eye creams, ie Cellcosmet eye contour cream? I am happy with it, but I will never refuse to try other nice things Razz

Thanks.

The eye cream is too thick because Eminence products need to add a drop of water to thin it when used.

I used Eminence eye cream before, for me it lasted 3-4 months. I applied it twice a day, it is thick, but not sticky at all, I can't stand sticky... It is thick, so it takes time to absorb. They don't always write exp date anywhere on the box, so be careful with that, once i had a spoiled one, it is not pretty, it grows mold... Sorry if TMI

Most of the time if I am not too mad I dont want to deal with sending - refunding... too much of my time. I used to work in the spa where they sold Eminence like 5 years ago, they had a lot of inconsistency... so I just threw it away... I will not use it anymore because it is always question in my mind, mabe it has mold, but i can't see it?... But the cream is really nice... I understand that when there is no preservatives, it is hard not to mold

i agree eminence products may not have artificial preservatives but most of the plant extracts they use should have some antibacterial/ antifungal properties. Surely they should have a way of decontaminating a product during packaging and sealing. If we use clean hands during each use then further recontamination is minimsed.

It seems like a few of their products contain non-botanical preservatives.

Here's the link for Eminence's new coconut firming body lotion on DermStore: http://www.dermstore.com/product_Coconut+Firming+Body+Lotion_39159.htm

I see such preservatives as sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate. Granted, those are food-grade preservatives but they're still non-botanical.

Interestingly, the list of ingredients for Eminence's Coconut Firming Lotion on DermStore is different from the list of ingredients on EDS.
