Hi there.....
I am currently using Sonya Dakar but hm... I want to switch to organics line. I have been using eminence masques, and I love it, hence, I want to try their moisturizer too.
I have combination skin that scars easily. My skin only breaks out about once a month on pms time.
Can anyone suggest me which moisturizer to try?
Please help.....
thanks
Mabsy

I really like Eminence Organics masks as well - I am still hoping that EDS might sell this line on day Pray

I was recommended the Rosehip Whip moisturiser for my then combination skin. I actually did buy it and used up the whole jar of it. It is not my fave Eminence moisturiser (because it doesn't smell as nice as the rose one Embarassed ) but it is a good cream because it's not very rich and also has vitamin C in it (skin healing). Keep in mind that Eminence products seem to be of the "less is more" kind and you only need a little bit of this cream (or at least I did) otherwise I felt it was too much for day use in a humid climate.

Another thing to keep in mind is their new Stone Crop Hydrating Gel. I have not tried this but it is supposed to help with pigmentation issues and also has vitamin E in it among others.

Hi Mabsy,
where did you see this stonecrop hydrating gel?
do you use any other organics brands?
i want to try other brands as sometimes i think eminence can get expensive.

I agree with you - Eminence Organics is quite expensive, lucikly it goes a long way as you only need a little bit. I saw their new Stonecrop range on their website http://www.eminenceorganics.com/ Wink

I also use products from Dr Hauschka, Jurlique and Kosmea, as well as Decleor and YonKa. All are natural skin care companies although I am not 100% sure if they are all organic. While I do love Dr Hauschka and Jurlique, I am yet to find a company that has a line-up of masks similar to that of Eminence Organics - i.e. that looks, smells, and feels like fresh mushed up fruit/veggies Smile The whole range (or at least what I have tried so far) seems to feel a lot more "home made" (in a good way) rather than batch produced. Pity that nobody in Australia stocks it - I can only get it online and that means I can't play with testers etc Sad

Mabsby, there is a stockist in Australia for Eminence. I'll get you the number and company details when I get home tonight, do you have an email addy? One favour, could you let her know who it is that referred you?

Serious? Wow! Thanks, that's complete news to me! Will PM you about this shortly. I have no problem doing the referral but in all honesty if the markup on Eminence in Australia is anywhere near say the MD Formulations mark up here than I'm not likely to buy anything Embarassed

Hi Mabsy,

Just PM'ed you! As for prices, I don't remember seeing anything over $100. Most of the masks were from anywhere between $50-$70 but not too sure.

I've bought it from eBay before but had bad experiences with old products - it's *very* important for Eminence stuff to be pretty fresh. I really like buying from beautymatters.ca - Silvy is really nice and she was happy to include samples. I haven't bought from there for a while because their shipping charges to Australia went up. I see they've had an update to their site - not sure what shipping is like now.
