There are certain parts of the world known for particular beauty specialties. Hungary’s mineral rich soil and thermal springs were first discovered 2,000 years ago by the Romans who created baths, which evolved into a more complex spa culture by Turkish conquerors in the Middle Ages. Several founders of huge skincare conglomerates were from Hungary. The family-owned line since 1958 — Eminence Organic Skin Care — has been keeping up the tradition beautifully! I was happy to be hosted to experience it.
Eminence is focused on green agricultural and manufacturing practices. As they point out, “At the Eminence Certified Organic Farm in Hungary, Eminence Organics continues to use organic and bio-dynamic farming practices, including ancient techniques based on the lunar cycle that ensure plants are harvested at their most vital stage.”
No matter whether you’re quarantined by yourself or having to go places all masked up, you need to be keeping up with skincare. It’s a matter of health, well-being and self-confidence. Everything else – like cosmetics — is icing on that cake.
Just in time for the holidays, the Cleanse and Glow Gift Set:
Exfoliation is the removal of the hardened, dead top layer of your skin. This layer can clog pores, accentuate wrinkles and make your cosmetics apply unevenly. But with many complexions, less is more. Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing Cleanser is a smooth gel (no grit) with a fruit fragrance. They suggest it for extending the benefits of professional treatments or peels you may have gotten. Between the fruit and lactic acids, it painlessly smooths your complexion.
The other part of the set is very unique and cool product: Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant. You peel the seal off the top of a shaker. Wet your hands and shake some of the powder into your hands, lather them and use the foam as a gentle exfoliant. You can increase the “scrubbiness” by adding more powder to your hands. It’s not scratchy at all. The powder is rich in lactic and salicylic acids, which are known ingredients to help keep your skin clear.
