Hey Everyone,

The resident Yonka girl back here. My aesthetician used the Emulsion Pure on me the other day and I didn't realize what it does. So I bought a bottle from her directly to try, and my gosh, this SAVES you when you break out.

So usually when I break out, I start to pop the pimples in the area . . . or I'll pick at it and it gets really red and inflamed. I know, I know, it's a really bad habit, but I can't help it sometimes. So what you do is . . . you soak a gauze (not cotton cuz cotton will soak up too much product and waste it) and compress it on the problem-area for 15 minutes. It smells SO wonderful (it's a more potent version of the Yonka Lotion). But after 15 minutes, my goodness, you will SEE a difference. The inflamed area and the redness are GONE. Your pimples might still be there but the Emulsion Pure does something magical with your skin -- it makes the redness and the inflamed area neutralize to the same color as your normal skin. So then you can put make up on, etc.

It's AMAZING. It comes in a pretty small bottle (1.7 oz) but it's not something I use every day. I only break it out during break-outs (ha ha, bad pun, sorry) and it is SUCH a face-saver. It really helps calm the pimples, too, so there's faster healing.

SUCH a wonderful product. I wish I had discovered it SOONER!

Hello

I bought this item a while ago as a mistake and I had no idea on how to use it...so I ended up using it more like a toner then anything else.

I have combinational skin with occassional hormonal breakouts.

I now know that I don't have to use this as a toner but more like a medicine for my flare ups.

It is amazing but so is creme 15 and Juvenil.. those 3 items are really a life saver.

I use to use Proactiv but I no longer have to cause Yonka like replaced it for me.

However, I find that those products are a bit to drying for a winter and am having a very hard time finding a cream that would suit my needs. Does anyone know a good face cream doesn't have to be from Yonka line.?

I tried Christian Dior Nutri cream but I am not seeing any results...

Please advise

Now I SO want to try this! Why does EDS say "We do not sell Yonka products to USA."?

Hi Lisa, thanks for your great review, I don't have any break outs, but I am very interested in Yonka at the moment. Have you or anyone else tried any of the serums/night treatments?

I used Elastin Night cream for a while. It's light but quite moisturising yet not greasy. Yonka is a good line.

Hi ErinChristine,

I was just browsing the DIY thread & saw that Carekate had posted a homemade version a while back. Here's the link:

Hey Yonka fans - I've just starting using Yonka again - have quite oily skin and trying to minimise the shine.

Can anyone tell me if they have a similar skin type how they found the Pamplemousse for Normal to Oily skin? Or is there a better one to prevent the shine?

I've got the Creme PG for impure skin but so far not finding it as controlling as I'd hoped. I do use the clay mask from time to time and getting back into a more regular routine with that one as well.

Thanks Confused

What kind of gauze should I use for the emulsion pure? I've got cotton and it soaks up the product too much... what a waste. What do you use? Shock

Lol,
just browsing the yonka items...
I remember I usedto use this until the store I bought it from stopped selling it Sad

then forgot about this item totally....

You could try sterile medical gauze.
or you can get rolls of gauze cheaply in first aid@ drugstores.

I just rip off a thin piece of cotton about the size of my pinky nail. It covers the pimple and doesn't waste too much product.
