I have been a big advocate for the oil cleansing method, but after realizing my skin was reacting badly to sweet almond oil, I decided to try something a bit different. Sometimes skin care is trial and error! Anyway-I decided that since I like Eminence’s stone crop serum so much, maybe it was a good idea to try out more of their line. I decided to mix up my normal skin care routine, ditch the OCM and try a skin clearing cleanser.
Before I start raving about this cleanser, let me briefly explain my skin type-In the winter, I have super dry skin. In the summer I experience blackheads all over and a few whiteheads on my cheek bones. I don’t experience too many blemishes, mainly bumps, but I’m no stranger to random hormonal breakouts either. For me, using a product that is going to work by drying my skin out just won’t work. While my skin doesn’t react initially to products burning or stinging, I am sensitive enough that doing too much to my skin will bring on the breakouts and clogs.
I can not get over Eminence’s Probiotic cleanser. I have been using it for a month now and I could not be happier. I use it morning and night then follow up with a light moisturizer. As with everything that clears the skin, there is a detox period. About a week in, I was experiencing red bumps. It seemed like my blackheads and whiteheads were very pronounced. After about 2 1/2 weeks I started noticing my skin smoothing out. Now that I’m a month in, I am so thrilled with how even and smooth my skin is looking! I love that it doesn’t dry me out. It doesn’t leave me feeling tight and while it doesn’t sting or burn, I can tell it is working. Plus, it smells amazing. I will say, it does sting my eyes. While I use it to take mascara off, I probably shouldn’t.
With Eminence, I’m starting to be a true believer. I’ve never used a line that was so natural yet so effective! I’m trying one product at a time in order to know exactly which product is delivering results. I can’t wait to try more products. I would suggest this cleanser to anyone dealing with clogged skin. Let me tell you, getting rid of blackheads and whiteheads with just a cleanser is crazy!
