Eminence Herbal Recovery Oil


This is one huge ‘can’t live without’ product for me.  The Eminence Herbal Recovery Oil is my saving grace.  I was first introduced to it by Renee who gave me my first ever Eminence facial at the Yonge Eglinton Cosmetic Centre.  It was her go-to product too, and now it’s mine.

I put this on every single night under my moisturizer.  Just a few drops is all I need.  With the dry and harsh winter weather, biting wind, and sun on top of that, it saves my sensitive skin from the elements daily.  It restores, rejuvenates, nourishes, and heals all night long.  And in the summer it will help from the heat and brutal sun, I’m sure.  I swear by the softness, and the soothing that this gives me every night as I sleep.

It’s one of those things that when I put on my face after cleansing and toning, I feel a general sense of “ahhhh.”

Red Currant Masque and Moisturizer


The Red Currant Rapid Infusion Masque and Red Currant Protective Moisturizer with SPF 30 from Eminence Organics is part of their Youth Shield line.  The line is geared for that special group of people who have both anti-aging concerns and acne concerns.  I haven’t had the chance to try all of the products in that line, but I have had the chance to test drive these two. 


The moisturizer has tea tree oil in it to combat acne all day long, and while I love that, I find that it’s not heavy enough for my skin.  I need something with a bit more moisturizing power.  But of course, I don’t let a great product go to waste. So I have a homemade blend of oils that I mix in with this before applying and then it’s absolutely fantastic.  By itself, it would probably be wonderful for someone who has skin on the oilier side.  It’s moisturizing and not at all heavy.

The masque is actually the perfect thing for every lady who says she doesn’t have enough time to do masques.  You put it in and massage and rinse off in two-three minutes!  What’s great is that you could totally multitask by washing your face, applying the masque, and brushing your teeth in the duration you have to wait.  Then rinse and you’re done.  It’s definitely what I reach for when I know I don’t have a good time to relax and treat myself with a masque. 

Oh and in case you haven’t already guessed, the masques focus is also anti-aging and anti-acne.  Two birds, one stone…in just two minutes. 

Now what I’m hoping to get for Xmas or my birthday *’cause you know they’re right beside each other* is the Bearberry Eye Repair Cream.

Eminence Bright Skin Moisturizer


Okay folks, I love this Bright Skin Moisturizer with SPF 30 for the day.  I’ve tried a few other day creams with SPF from Eminence, but for my drier and sensitive skin this was the one.  I wanted a moisturizer that was hydrating and also had sun screen, but that was natural. 

I’ve found some natural sun screens to leave a horrible white film, and I don’t really want to use the synthetic ones because of the damaging health effects.  So this was perfect: natural and no film.  The  natural skin brightening agent helps to target any acne darkening that might be left over.  It’s not in the product description per se, but it feel like this has helped to restore a more even skin tone and to reduce discoloration caused by past and current acne. 

Plus, like I mentioned above, it’s wonderfully hydrating for my skin during the day.  And I love how easily make up slides over it.  For audition days, or days when I’m on set and have a face full of make- up this is what I arrive wearing and so far, no make up artist has complained *and trust me, if they don’t like what’s on your face, they complain*

*Disclosure:  I am working with Eminence on a campaign to highlight my favorite products in return for a select number of samples. But I reached out to them after trying their products. Please read my original Eminence Organic introduction post for more details*

Blueberry Soy to the Rescue


The Blueberry Soy Night Recovery Cream from Eminence Organics is pure delight in a jar.  When you first open it, it smells so delectable that you might be tempted to eat it.  But trust me, don’t.  Save it for your skin.

It’s deeply hydrating, soothing, and rejuvenating.  It’s like staying in PJs in a soft blanket with a cup of tea….but for your skin. 

I use this every night after applying an oil serum to my skin.  It’s a wonderful night cream that is so gentle it doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin, or clog any pores.  But it does leave me with soft skin in the morning.  That’s awesome in my books.


I decided to showcase these products together since they go so well with each other.  The Blueberry Soy Repair Masque is just the perfect deep hydration.  After a long day on set and wearing tons of make-up, I cleanse and use a deep cleaning masque.  But right after I apply this one.  To restore hydration to skin that’s been dried out all day from make up and powder and lights.

It’s also what I put on after a day out in the cold wind, or when exposed to the elements.  The soothing and moisturizing ingredients are perfect to help the skin repair and heal. 

Clear Skin Probiotic Masque

For my acne prone skin, one of the very best products has been the Eminence Organics Clear Skin Probiotic Masque.  This gentle masque is non-drying, which is great because too much drying can actually cause breakouts, but is super powerful.  I put on this masque after a good exfoliation and leave it on for a good 20 minutes. 

I’ve been known to answer the door for the Postman several times while wearing the masque.  He’s gotten over seeing this face at the door.  I will say that this masque has not only calmed my breakouts, but has stopped pimples dead in their tracks.  I’ll even put it on as a spot treatment overnight on a particularly challenging spot. 

The tingling feeling of the tea tree oil gives you that satisfying feeling that you’re really zapping things.   It does this all while nourishing and not drying out my skin.  This is my not-so-secret weapon.

Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant from Eminence

Every cosmetician I’ve ever known has hounded me about exfoliation.  But honestly, I’ve tried a lot and they left my sensitive skin feeling raw and red,  and that doesn’t really make me want to repeat it often.  I thought it was the fact that it was so gritty and harsh that had my skin screaming, but I think now that it was whatever else was added to the exfoliator.

The Strawberry Rhubard Dermafoliant from Eminence is just a pure powder of organic ingredients.  You shake out the powder onto your hand, add a touch of water and scrub your face with it. 

It’s gritty and I thought it would be just as rough on my skin, but it isn’t.  Like I said, I guess it was all the other additives in previous products that inflamed my skin.  This is simply grit that scrubs away the dead skin cells.  When I say simply, I don’t mean it’s just grit, the list of ingredients is impressive and completely well thought out.  In saying ‘simply’ I mean there’s nothing unnecessary thrown in there.

Apparently, for me a large part of my problem was clogged pores and dead skin build up.  Kind of gross, but at least exfoliation can help with that.  And I’ve loved that it helps to add a glow to my skin and reduce the amount of breakouts. 

Introducing Eminence Organics

I bought a groupon (a place where you can get discounted deals) for a facial at the Yonge Eglinton Laser Eye + Cosmetic Centre
Once there I men Renee.  The facial was wonderful no doubt, but what’s
more exciting is the new line that Renee introduced me to.  She, like
myself, is very aware of what we put in and on to out bodies.  The
chemicals and additives that mess with our internal and external

As you know, I’m a big proponent of using natural products at all times, and so enter Eminence Organics.  Renee raved about this line. And in part she was preaching to the choir as a line that is so pure in its ingredients and that is dedicated to being green, plus all those awards, has definitely got me interested.

She sent me home with a few samples, plus I asked her what would be the number one product to recommend to me and I got that.  After a week of use, my Mother-In-Law was over and mentioned that my skin was looking very ‘bright.’  I was glad that I wasn’t the only one who was noticing a difference.  My complexion was calmer, and I had less acne, and everything just seemed better.  I’m not an esthetician and I truly wish I could explain it better than that, but that’s the best way to put it.
It was smoother, clearer, and calmer. 

After a week, I bought two more products.  And a week after that I wrote the company.   I wrote them exactly what I am writing you right now.   I wrote of my experience in discovering them.  I also wrote of my skin care struggles over the years.  I told them, and I’m telling you, that they are the best skin care line that I have ever used.  That’s not an exaggeration. I’ve used prescription, drugstore, spa, natural, name it and I’ve probably tried it.  I have never ever gotten results like these, and the fact that they are organic and committed to a green and sustainable ethic had me so excited my fingers couldn’t keep up with the speed of my brain as I typed.

I told them if they ever want to work with someone, a blogger, I would love to share the brand with anyone I can.  And I have been.  I’ve been sharing with all my girlfriends, and every place where the topic comes up.  Elisa, from Eminence Organics, wrote me back, and I guess my giddiness leaked through the email because she said they would love to work with me.

After a discussion about my skin type and concerns and some products from their catalog that I was interested in, she sent out a package.  I had no idea what to expect.   I was so humbled by their generosity.    I was also very excited to try these new products.  If they were even close to the three I already have I knew I would not be disappointed.

I’ll be sharing Eminence Organics with you over the next little while.  I’ll be starting with the products I bought originally, since they are the ones I have used the longest, and go from there.

Guys, I can’t wait for this.  Honestly, best cosmetic line I have tried ever.   And I don’t say that lightly.
