Talk About It - Eminence Organic Skin Care

I've been testing out the Bright Skin Cleanser by Eminence Organic Skin Care and I have to say that I'm fairly impressed. The company has been making organic skin care since 1958 and I can see why they have earned so many awards and accolades in the past 55 years. My skin was going through a dry spell and was patchy and flaky when I started using this cleanser and noticed an immediate different in the texture of my skin. I was totally surprised by how soft my skin felt after using it for the first time.

It's light green in color and has a very smooth and creamy consistency. It also comes in a huge (8.4 fl oz) bottle that will last a very long time. It sells for $38 but you get a lot of product for the money.

It's extremely gentle and refreshing. This cleanser is moisturizing, but not heavy and rinses clean without stripping the skin or leaving a residue behind. I have normal to dry skin and my Mom has combination skin and we both really like this cleanser. I can't say that I have noticed a change in any dark spots or age spots, which is a technicality because I don't actually have any, so I can't comment on how well it fades discoloration. I can, however, comment on the fact that my skin appears to glow after using it.

The only negative thing I can say is that is has a very strong scent. It's not an awful scent, but it is very potent and lingers for hours after cleansing. It reminds me of Irish Spring soap for whatever reason.

I was also sent the Bamboo Firming Fluid, although the smell was too much for me, so I had to pass it on to my Mom who has been using it since it arrived. Here are her thoughts: "Although the smell is strong at first, it does dissipate in a short time. It hydrates well and is an excellent natural Retinol alternative. It firms and I believe I have seen a difference in my skin after using this product. My skin is becoming much more "mature" than I would like it to be but at 45 I guess that is to be expected."

  1. I can't believe that I haven't heard of this company since it has been around so long! But I must say that I just love the packaging! So pretty. Glad to know that you and your mom like them. I know you didn't care for the smell, but at my age I need the Firming Lotion in a bad way!

  2. The packaging really is pretty! Keep in mind Robin that I'm super, super sensitive to smells so it might not bother you at all!
