This is a great cleanser that is mild but effective for those who don't use make up. I can only use it in the morning, as I need something a bit stronger for evenings when I wash my make up off. (I'll stick with MyChelle's Fruit Enzyme cleanser for evening use, it's another of my staple products). For the mornings though it's lovely. It doesn't strip you skin dry nor does it leave it greasy like some cream cleansers do.

I absolutely ADORE Eminence products. The Herbal Spot serum is one of my staples & I don't ever want to be without it! I used the Eight Greens line initially, which was really good & improved my skin a lot. But when I added the Herbal Spot serum my skin cleared completely within just a week or so. No more midcycle breakouts! It's fabulous & smells great too.

I absolutely love Eminence products, quite a few of them are part of my staples & daily skincare routine. I've used the Eminence Eight Greens Whip Moisturiser for a few months now. It's brilliant for calming & stabilizing my skin which is prone to small pimples & is very sensitive because of the hormonal imbalances I have. I used to always get breakouts about midcycle that stuck around for a week or so but they dramatically decreased when I started using the Eight Greens line. The breakout's stopped completely when teaming up the EGWM with the Herbal Spot serum rather than the EG serum. The only slight downside to this moisturizer (and the reason I only gave it 4 out of 5) is that it's not rich enough for my very dry skin. I've started adding a few drops of Tamanu oil to it though and that makes it perfect.

I'm surprised to read the previous review. I've tried this product & I absolutlely love it. I have very dry & sensitive skin. I use a very rich face cream which I let soak in for 20 mins or so prior to applying my mineral foundation. I also apply a light layer of finishing powder but despite this I always get re-bound shine on my chin & T-zone midday or early afternoon. Without the finishing powder I get shine within a couple of hours. I tried a light layer of P&P Equilibrium Balance before applying my foundation, but I didn't apply any finishing powder. I did feel a touch dry in some areas (cheeks etc) initially, but it wasn't an uncomfortable tight & itchy dry feeling. That feeling disappeared after about an hour though. I never got any re-bound shine though! Even though I didn't apply any finishing powder. After 10 hours I still don't have any shine. The foundation doesn't have that "matte perfect photoshop" finish that I get with the finishing powder but it's certainly not shiny, but more like the foundation has melded with my skin. It just looks very natural :) This is definitively one of my new staples!
Powder -Unlisted Brand - The All Natural Face mineral foundation

This is a brilliant foundation! It has by far some of the best staying power of any of the VERY many mineral foundations I have ever tried. It gives really good cover but without looking or feeling heavy or unnatural. The range of shades is great too & it's cheap with many options for amount of product to order (with or without jar). This is a great foundation for those of you who like me make Casper the friendly ghost look tanned ;) there are loads of very pale/fair shades to try
