Eminence Organic Skin Care has launched a new collection that is formulated to instantly lift, firm, tighten, and dramatically improve the appearance of puffy, tired eyes, sagging skin, and even the deepest expression lines.

Featuring firming and lifting hibiscus, botanical peptides, and a unique ice wine active, these products deliver results in minutes, and show long-lasting improvements over time.

This premium eye treatment has the most immediate and visible results for under-eye bags, dark circles and tired-looking eyes.  Use the cooling stainless steel rollerball applicator to massage elastin-preserving hibiscus into the areas around the eye, and watch  as an ice wine active instantly lifts and tightens.  Designed to visibly smooth wrinkles and reduce swelling, the natural peptides and caffeine combine forces to de-puff and minimize dark under eye circles.  Layer a hydrating eye cream over top to transform tired-looking eyes in a flash.

Instant firming and lifting for the neck an décolletage.  It’s one of the most tell-tale areas to show signs of aging, yet one of the most difficult to treat.  Rejuvenate and tighten the delicate neck and décolletage area with this blend of hibiscus and botanical hyaluronic acid to keep skin firm and rich in moisture.  The all-natural active ingredients in this potent neck cream give sagging skin a stimulating boost from paprika, and the tightening properties of edelweiss ensure the neck is smooth and instantly lifted.

As a natural alternative to lipofilling, Voluformworks on multiple layers of the skin to instantly fill lines from the inside out while stevia extract minimizes the stress-induced muscle reactions that cause wrinkles to form.  The innovative curved tip applicator helps this potent treatment to work like Mother Nature’s line eraser, plumping the skin with botanical peptides and delaying further formation and deepening of fine lines with camel oleacera extract.  Expect both immediate and long-lasting, more youthful results.

And here’s the adorable, limited edition Gift With Purchase…you get deluxe, age corrective travel sizes of Bamboo Firming Fluid AND Neroli Age Corrective Eye Serum.

Stop in today, and also schedule one of our customized Anti-Aging Signature Facials, which will feature these products!

Repair & Protect – a New Collection from Eminence

0

Summer is in full swing, and it seems like everyone I know is off to the beach, their favorite theme park, or spending days at the ball field.   However, along with the benefits of fresh air and activity come the sobering negatives of UV exposure, pollution and harsh elements. Daily aggressors in your environment – including sun, wind, water and snow – exacerbate skin conditions, taking their toll on your complexion and drying out your skin.

To defend yourself against the harshness of the elements, we introduce the Repair and Protect Collection. Our latest line-up of products is specifically formulated to combat environmental stressors including UV rays and the drying effects of pollution, wind, and rain. This collection is your secret weapon against the elements and anything else the seasons throw your way.

ROSEHIP & LEMONGRASS REPAIR BALM
This revolutionary super balm uses the power of Natural Repair Complex to fight dry skin caused by elemental exposure. A few dabs of this ultra-rich cream will repair, soothe and reduce redness for dry skin.

ROSEHIP & LEMONGRASS SOOTHING HYDRATOR FOR FACE & BODY
A lightweight moisturizer for both face and body, this hydrator can be used under the Repair Balm to lock in moisture, repair dry skin and reduce redness caused by dryness. Camphor and menthol also generate a cooling sensation, perfect for refreshing the face and body after exposure to the elements.

Repair and protect when you’re on the go or at the beach.REPAIR & PROTECT STARTER SET
Repair and protect when you’re on the go or at the beach. Including the Stone Crop Gel Wash, Rosehip & Lemongrass Soothing Hydrator, Rosehip & Lemongrass Repair Balm and Tropical Vanilla Day Cream SPF 32, this collection of products is a perfect introduction and ideal for travel.

COMING SOON: ROSEHIP & LEMONGRASS LIP BALM SPF 15
Look out for the Rosehip & Lemongrass Lip Balm SPF 15 which will be joining the collection soon. The rosehip oil in this organic treatment soothes weather-ravaged dry lips, rejuvenating lavender helps restore softness, while zinc oxide provides natural SPF 15 protection against the sun’s harmful rays. This balm helps tone, repair and refresh dry lips.

Organic Rosehip & Lemongrass Facial
