Éminence is an award-winning skin care brand that offers seasonal new launches and potent face and body treatments for spa, day spa, medi-spa and selected beauty salons.
As an organisation, Éminence believes in providing the best skin care products possible. Founded in Hungary in 1958, its creators used local ingredients like fruits and other botanicals to create all-natural skin products. They also drew on healing traditions and historical skin care remedies from the area to increase their product line as the years went by. Today, Éminence Skin Care is still controlled by the founding family, and all of the company’s product ingredients are hand-picked and processed in Hungary by local merchants.
Éminence products are hand-crafted using only the finest natural and organic ingredients. Their products are proudly free of parabens, animal by-products, propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfates, harmful colorants and fragrances, mineral oils, petroleum and other harsh cosmetic chemicals.
Elfreda McGowan, our Beauty contributor, joins us today with a review of their Stone Crop Cleansing Oil.
I’ve been using Éminence’s Stone Crop Cleansing Oil for the past month or so, and I have to say, it’s a luxurious treat for the skin. I keep it beside my bathroom sink and use it twice a day. It feels very nourishing and I find it great to use on my skin which is very prone to dryness.
I’ve taken to massaging it onto my face in circular motions for about one minute and then adding a little water to emulsify it and then wiping it off with a warm damp face flannel. The smell is beautiful and it feels like you’re visiting a beautiful spa every time you apply it. My skin feels really dewy and there is no greasy residue afterwards which I really like. I use a separate eye cleanser but will definitely keep using this cleansing oil as I feel my skin is a lot more balanced and clear after a month’s use.
It’s suitable for all skin types and the ingredients are a potent formulation of microgreens that protect the skin from environmental stressors and nourishing oils: Stone Crop, Detoxifying Microgreens Complex (Broccoli, Radish and Clover Sprouts and Detoxophane from Swiss Cress Sprouts), Sunflower Oil, Jojoba Oil. It comes in a handy pump bottle and you can twist the nozzle to release or stop the pump. I would give this product top marks, 5/5 and will purchase again once my bottle runs out.
Price €54 for 150ml, available exclusively from The Wicklow Street Clinic.
