Eco Beauty

A Celebration for the Skin

One of my favorite things about ringing in the new year is celebrating with champagne. I enjoy cocktails – but give me a glass (or two) of Perrier Jouet or a mimosa and I’m a happy camper. I love the bubbly, so I was excited to try Eminence Organics Mimosa Champagne Lotion and Sugar Scrub from their D-Vine collection. They introduced this for winter and sent me some samples. I really fell for these eco-friendly goodies. They’re not your typical lotion and scrub. These are fabulous finds. They smell amazing and contain wisely chosen organic ingredients that are really great for the skin.

Steeped in Hungarian Wine Grapes

In the D-Vine collection, Eminence Organics has steeped all the products in Hungary’s Tokay Ice Wine Grapes. That makes for heavenly products. The lotion and scrub have a refreshing, natural, sparkling citrus fragrance that I can’t get enough of.

Major Multitaskers

But they don’t just smell good, they’re major multitaskers that benefit the skin in many ways. The grapes contain antioxidants that are said to fight damaging free radicals in the environment, detoxify, hydrate, and prevent freckles and age spots. Both the lotion and the scrub also contain orange essential oils that are believed to calm, reduce inflammation, detoxify, support skin regeneration, increase circulation, and hydrate.

The lotion feels wonderful, isn’t too light or too heavy, and sinks right in. It also contains avocado oil, which is an antioxidant and moisturizer that’s rich in proteins and vitamins. The scrub has a light gel consistency with plenty of raw sugar to gently exfoliate. It also has green tea, which is supposed to soothe, heal, firm, balance, prevent and repair sun damage, and delay the aging of skin cells. These are products that work overtime.

The D-Vine Collection also includes a Mimosa Champagne Tonique, Tokay Ice Wine Masque, Ice Wine & Quince Masque, and Mimosa Champagne Massage Oil.

The Scoop on Eminence Organics

Eminence Organics creates some of the loveliest plant-based skin care products that have long been used at elegant spas. Their products are handmade in Hungary with all-natural, organically grown herbs, fruits, vegetables, and thermal hot springs waters. They are free of parabens, mineral oils, petroleum, and sodium lauryl sulphate. The company also does many things to reduce their carbon footprint, like power their ingredient farm completely with solar and wind energy and skip toxic chemical pesticides. Next up for Eminence Organics is a new Ahhhpricot Relaxing Spa Collection and new Detox and Anti-Blemish Kits. Their products are available at spas and online at stores like buynaturalskincare.com and skincarerx.com.

  1. Eminence is an amazing product. They also make a red hot mask that heats up when applied, and makes your skin feel amazing after.

  5. I ADORE Eminence. I’ve been using their line for over 3+ years. I love the Naseberry treatment and the new Apricot line. The Quince & Ice Wine masque smells so great.
