In Topic: Eminence Organic Skin Care

27 May 2015 - 12:40 PM

Hi,
My daughter used the Eminence line of products for about 6 months (at the advice of the lady at the spa where she gets her facials) and this is what she found:
-she like the way the products made her skin feel
-she felt good about using products which were supposedly 'organic'
HOWEVER
-her skin (acne) did not improve whatsoever
-when she looked up the products on www.cosdna she found that they all had ingredients that were irritants and chemicals and were not actually 'organic' at all
 (they also get very poor ratings on www.beautypedia.com)

So I think that if you have skin problems these products will most likely not clear them up and may in fact irritate your skin if you are sensitive. You can certainly find much better products, especially at the cost!

Just my two cents worth - good luck!

Which birth control are you on? Some actually make your skin worse so you need to be on the one that is right for your hormone imbalance.

Do you moisturize? Use any natural exfoliants? (ie. baking soda)

My daughter was prescribed Benzaclin by her dermatologist after trying numerous other topicals and by three months of use she was 90% clear. ( Of course different products work differently for everyone)

My daughter used Aczone for three months and saw no improvement, but everyone reacts differently so it may work for you.  Her dermatologist then put her on Benzaclin and within 2 months her face has cleared up 90%. 
She has never tried Ziana so I can't comment on that.
Hope you find what works for you!

Your acne is very mild and you are a pretty girl regardless.

Looks to me like maybe you just need to us a topical that contains either benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid to dry up the small blemishes.

What are you currently using on your face?

Just wondering which birth control you are on because some actually do make acne worse (usually the ones that are high in androgens).

You can check on this site www.cosdna to make sure that your makeup is really non-comedogenic and that your face wash etc does not contain any irritants.
