First of all, hi! It’s been a while, I’ve missed you guys. How are you? Can you believe it’s May!?
Spring is moving right along and I’m loving the sun lately. With the warmer weather I’ve switched up a few of my everyday products and today I wanted to share the moisturizer I’ll be using this Spring/Summer. The Eminence Organics Arctic Berry Peptide Radiance Cream. Take a look at that gorgeous shade of purple!
I picked this up at the beginning of the month and I’ve completely fallen for it. The colour, the smell, the texture…not to mention the incredible skin-benefiting ingredients! It’s designed to smooth, firm, hydrate, plump, and balance the skin while enhancing a radiant and luminous complexion. A dewy skin lovers dream.
This is a great option for all skin types! I have normal/combination skin with an oiler t-zone and use lots of serums and oils everyday so this is perfect for me as a light moisturizer. The consistency is very thin and I know a few girls with dry skin who actually use this cream as a serum and then apply a heavier moisturizer over top. Eminence products are made without water so you always have the option of adding a drop or two of water to dilute the product before applying. I haven’t found that necessary with this cream because it’s already very light and spreads easily over the skin. It absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave any film or residue after application (shown on my hand below). It’s very comfortable and the fresh berry scent is light and soothing.
Eminence uses a blend of 4 antioxidant-rich plants (cloudberry seed, arctic roseroot, arctic meadowsweet and juniper sprouts) that are known to prevent the signs of aging. They also use hydrating jojoba oil, argan oil, and lingonberry seed oil to replenish the skin’s moisture and boost mineral levels and omega 3 fatty acids. Yellow plum is added to help with inflammation and balance skin tone. Hibiscus seed extract peptides promote elasticity in the skin and stem cells from both Gardenia and Gota-Kula plants are used to improve skin tone, elasticity, hydration levels, and the appearance of fine lines. I’m so impressed with how far we’ve come in technology to be able to add incredible ingredients like this to our everyday skincare. As most of you already know, I love supporting handmade brands that use simple select ingredients, but as a skincare enthusiast it’s exciting to try natural products backed with extensive research and hard to source ingredients.
