‘Organic’ is a word that’s tossed around quite a bit these days, and it’s becoming a little trickier to find brands that are true to its meaning. We’re here to preach that Eminence is one of those brands, and they’ve been doing it a lot longer (and better) than most.
In the biz since 1958, they’ve been using sustainable farming and green practices to provide the best and best-for-you skin care products possible. While the majority of the line is more than stellar, we’re particularly infatuated with a few products that have been total game changers for these particular skin types:
BEST CLEANSER FOR SENSITIVE SKIN: Stone Crop Gel Wash
To some of us, nearly everything we put on our skin is a catalyst for disaster, usually because of hidden chemicals and allergic reactions to ingredients we can’t even pronounce. For these individuals we recommend the Stone Crop Gel Wash. It takes getting used to for some, as it doesn’t quite lather the same way as regular cleansers do - however, this means that the natural oils aren’t stripped when washing impurities from your skin. Great for all skin types, but especially helpful for anyone prone to dryness and irritation.
BEST ACNE TREATMENT PRODUCT: Clear Skin Probiotic Masque
Real talk: finding skin care products that don’t make breakouts worse is a total nightmare. Every product affects each person uniquely, and it can be a little scary trying something new. This product is DEFINITELY one that needs to be tried. It’s a yogurt based mask, which means it’s a little heavy when you first apply - however, after a few minutes, your skin completely soaks it up and is completely rejuvenated. It’s cooling, calming, hydrating and nourishing - meaning your skin is getting the vitamins it needs to fight acne-causing bacteria and pores are becoming minimized. Bye bye, blemishes!
BEST TONER TO COMBAT DRY SKIN: Stone Crop Hydrating Mist
If you’re currently residing in a dry climate, you probably need all the moisture you can get. Moisturizer often isn’t enough - which is why we recommend this revitalizing and hydrating toner. If sprayed directly before applying, it will actually aid your skin to absorb moisturizer more efficiently. Keep it in your purse to spritz on if your skin is feeling super dry throughout the day for a little extra oomph.
BEST EXFOLIANT ON THE PLANET:Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant
Often times, our skin can develop a buildup of product that prevents absorption and eventually causes buildup. During these times, you’re going to want an exfoliant, and this one seriously works wonders. Similar to the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant, this super gentle powder turned exfoliant aids in fading scarring while removing any impurities lodged in the skin. Individuals with oily skin are particularly fond of this product to keep greasy looking skin at bay.
BEST ANTI-AGING DAILY MOISTURIZER: Coconut Age Corrective Moisturizer
We’re told from an early age that if we want our skin to retain its youthful demeanor, that we’d do well to incorporate a retinol into our skin care routine. What we love about this moisturizer is that due to its natural mild retinol nature, it acts as an anti-aging agent while infusing the skin with the ultimate dewy hydration. This results in glowing, tightened and the freshest of the fresh skin. Did we mention that it smells absolutely delicious?
