hi everyone......im new to this site and thought i'd introduce myself through this question. i am interested in the eminence range of products but they arent available in the uk and i have to order them from the us.....!!!! however, they have such a wide range of products i dont know which would be suitable for me...

i have dehyrated skin which looks a little dull with dryness on the chin and nose. i also suffer from acne on my cheeks.

if anyone has experience with eminence please advise me on what mask, moisturizer and cleanser to use.

thanks soo much.

welcome suki!

i just ordered a whole bunch of eminence products and received them yesturday. i came to know about eminence through a facial i had in nyc, and have been dying to try more products since. of course i couldn't wait to get home to try everything (the sealed box was staring at me all day at work) and loved each and every product that i tried last night (gotta save some for tonight!).

first off, i ordered from www.soulreflexions.com - they are canadian and appear to have the best prices (and i've checked a lot of sites). they suggest that you actually phone in, and the lady you talk to, christina, is very helpful and nice; she'll help you choose the best products for you and tell you the order you should use them and keep you from ordering anything that might be redundent or not suitable.

i too am dehydrated with mainly blackheads on my cheeks and nose and the occasional spot. i also have some pigmentation issues. here's what i ordered (and the sequence that i've been told to use them):
sweet red rose cleanser - lovely pink yum yum
eight greens phyto mask - slightly tingly
stone crop mask - slight cooling
carrot vitamin mask - can we say carrot cake?
(all masks 2ce a week, all 3, one right after the other)
stone crop cream
it was also suggested that i try the naseberry treatment cream at night (has fruit acids to help get rid of face yuckies)
+ several samples of other creams + masks that i know i'll love
and i got the cinnamon paprika cream - oooo it tingles and warms my skin...i'll be ready to face winter weather w. this warming cream.

everything is very thick (these are the only products i've come across where water isn't the first ingredient, and w. eminence, not an ingredient at all) and it is suggested that some water be mixed in w. all of the masks to loosen them up a bit, and can also be added to creams to make them lighter.

since i've only just started using these products yesturday, i can't give a really good review, but i can say that there was a lot of colour in my cheeks before i went to bed last night!!

hth.

well, they are located in vancouver (eminence distribution is apparently also located in vancouver), so once i got my order in, it took about 2 days for them to receive it from the distribution warehouse, and then about a week to get to toronto by canada post (canada post is not known for their speed, so probably a shorter time to elsewhere).

postage was 12 cad, and will vary depending on where they're shipping to. also, they do payment through paypal, and charge, i think it was 4.9%, for the transaction.

Hello Suki and welcome,
Eminence Organics is my favorite skincare line. I can't say how much I this line. It is so fresh, and I Iove that it's organic. To me, it is nourishment and dessert for the skin! I too discovered this line from the best facial and back facial I ever had.
I currently use the sweet red rose cleanser and think it is the best cleanser. All the products are handmade so there may be variances in their color, textures and smells. For example Lamicuz mentioned her cleanser is pink-- mine is white. I think the rose cleanser would be perfect for your skin type as it is clarifying (has salicylic acid) yet gentle for sensitive skin with the rose petal extract. I have both the wild plum tonique and the red rose tonique. The plum smells better, but I think either would work for you as a toner. I also use the eye cream which is divine, and also use it on my lips. The herbal spot serum is nice and would be a great addition under your moisturizer to treat blemishes. The 2 masks I love are the carrot vitamin (soothing) and the hungarian herbal mud (clarifying) Be careful with the latter as it is has cinnamon and paprika and you may experience redness. If you can get a facial with an esthetician that uses, and is familiar with Eminence, that would be ideal so she can actually look at your skin under that dreaded magnifying glass, and make a proper diagnosis for which products to utilize. Look forward to reading your reviews.

I really like Eminence as well though you and I have different skin types so I can't really recommend much of what I have tried apart from the Carrot Vitamin Masque - really nice!

I bought my Eminence from two places www.beautymatters.ca and also www.soulreflexions.com. In both bases the postage was around CAD$22-27 but I ordered 3-4 products each time. Both sites had very good customer service and both have pretty good deals. I think soulreflexions.com has is a bit cheaper from what I recall but beautymatters.ca has discounts for returning customers. So either way you get a good deal.

Anyone new to Eminence can start with Stone Crop
line. It's calming, hydrating, thus can't go wrong for most of people.
