Beauty Product Review: Eminence Handmade Organic Skin Care - New! Coconut Cream Milk Cleanser ($36 Natural Skincare.com) and Coconut Cream Masque ($52 Natural Skincare.com)
For many years I went to a Hungarian esthetician for a monthly facial. Ilde, a 50-something woman with resplendent skin, would treat you with Hungarian beauty concoctions and chit-chat of her beloved homeland. It was the ultimate pampering experience.
That's why I wasn't surprised that I fell in love with the Eminence Handmade Organic skin care line that is manufactured in Hungary, particularly new Coconut Milk Cleanser and Coconut Cream Masque. My only surprise was that the products were handmade. How refreshing is that in this day and age?
All of our products are handmade in Hungary-no mass production-without any heating or hydrogenating processes. Your clients will immediately see and feel the difference evolving from the extremely high fruit content, and therefore, the high level of active ingredients. Vitamins are captured in their all-natural fresh base, offering dramatic results as actual seeds, pulps and peels begin the regenerative and healing powers that only nature can produce.

My Review: Knowing that the products are fused with natural ingredients like coconut pulp -- yes, pulp! -- made me feel like I was sitting back in Ilde's salon chair having a luxurious facial. (If Ilde hadn't retired, I would still recline every month in her chair.)
I actually saw an itsy bit of coconut pulp in the cleanser and cream. It smells like a coconut that has just been cracked open -- fresh and tropical.
The cleanser was so nurturing and hydrating, my skin didn't feel like it required another layer of hydration at all, which is highly unusual for my dry skin.
The masque is luxury on steroids! Hydrating without feeling heavy, it left my face feeling exotically smooth. I will use this product when I want to feel pampered and hydrated.
Bonus Points: Watermelon Papaya Body Butter ($40) NEW!
