Eminence Defies Gravity
We first fell in love with Eminence Organics back in 2006. A green-leaning girlfriend was introduced to the Hungarian natural skincare brand at a Brooklyn spa and proceeded to buy the lot of it for personal use. A few at-home masking parties followed (a highly recommended pastime, btw), at which we discovered all of the company’s standout offerings. Stone Crop Whip Moisturizer, anyone? This month, the brand is launching its Zero Gravity collection, a four-piece range dedicated to plumping, lifting, and tightening, using vitamin-rich fruits, vegetables, and herbs hand-mixed in small batches. Each product contains the patented Zirhafirm complex—a maral root and wild jujube tincture that restructures saggy skin to make it upwardly mobile once again, along with a selection of nutrient-laced botanicals. While the Key Lime Vanilla Age-Defying Masque and Citron Age-Defying Massage Soufflé sound delectable, it’s the Persimmon & Cantaloupe Day Cream SPF 32 and the Jasmine Tangerine Age-Defying Night Cream that we’re enjoying most. The former packs the vitamin A-rich power of persimmon juice and the gentle exfoliating properties of cantaloupe, while the latter utilizes tangerine’s antioxidants and the carotenoids in jasmine petals to repair and nourish the skin while you sleep. The Day Cream is also formulated with the UV-blocking power of zinc oxide—which (surprise!) doesn’t leave a white cast behind but does defend your complexion against the sun’s damaging rays—so you can hydrate and protect in one fell swipe.
