My esthetician introduced the product to me and while I was hesitant about purchasing it (wary of self-selling and all that) I find that it was well worth the investment. :-)

On my journey towards improving my skin (clog-prone, probably sensitive, acne-prone) this Emulsion soothed red marks, made forming zits vanish away miraculously by the next day, and helping my skin feel better overall. If I picked at my whiteheads and ended up with redness I'd put a cotton gauze with a bit of Emulsion Pure, press it on the irritated skin, and then take it off after 10 - 15 minutes. Over night I would find that the red marks would disappear much quicker than without the Emulsion Pure (aka, real results, people!)

It has a very pleasant smell. After a stressful day I found it really nice to just relax with one of these compresses on my face. Should note that as the Yon-ka brand is based on plant oils and essences, those who are sensitive to fragrances may want to give this one a miss. But rest assured that for me, I enjoyed smelling this.

The Emulsion Pure comes in beautiful glass packaging and has a pump to it, making it easy to dispense the liquid into your palms if you so desire to use this as a toner.

I find this product to be infinitely more useful than any sort of clay mask or BP acne medication for my own skin. However, it is not really a cure all for the type of acne that I have (congestion/whiteheads). Rather, it is a minimizer for self-inflicted damage.

I always have this product in my cabinet. I use if for muliple uses including breakouts, cuts, skin irritations, etc. It is ultra healing and helps zap my zits quickly and heal with less reddness and scarring. Definitely recommend this product, even for those with sensitive skin!

I don't have blemishes, but I burned my neck (badly) with a curling iron a week before my wedding. I was freaking. My esthetician told me to blot a gauze swab with this and bandaid it over the burn 2 - 3 times a day. Desperate, I did as she suggested and the burn scabbed, came away and left NO REDNESS by my wedding. I COULD NOT believe it. I mean this was a nasty purple blotch the size of a loonie. Any time I had ever had a burn like this on my hand it didn't heal for weeks and didn't fade for months. Miraculous. I always have some of this on hand now.

This stuff is miraculous for healing blemishes without any of the usual drying, flaking, or irritation. I don't know how it works, but it does. I don't have full-out acne -- I have very dry skin, and occasionally get small bumps from overloading my skin w/ gobs of moisturizer.

Emulsion pure is a milky white liquid that smells wonderful, since it's full of botanicals. You can shake it out into your hand (which I do because cotton absorbs too much of this precious stuff) and dab it on your blemish, and since it's just a watery liquid you will think that it can't possibly do anything, but the next day the blemish is gone and there's no red spot or anything in it's place.

It's also good for soothing irritations or too much sun and supposedly has skin-firming abilities. The package suggests using galbol and then blotting emulsion pure on top to firm your neck...
