Check out this first hand experience with the Eminence Rosehip & Maize Exfoliating masque at Le Reve Organic Spa & Boutique in Santa Barbara, California.
“Today I tried out a new masque from Eminence, this masque was called the Rosehip & Maize Exfoliating Masque, after I took it off my skin radiated. As a result my face felt smooth and soft while looking clean and vibrant. I struggle with acne and scars from acne, this masque really pulled out the dirt and bacteria out from my pores and left me with a new layer of skin.
I would recommend this masque to anyone who has troubled skin, or just wants a good deep cleansing, exfoliating masque.
As the maize flower in this masque exfoliates, reship infuses the skin with high quantities of antioxidant vitamin C. In addition, irritated skin is then soothed by honey and zinc oxide. A perfect remedy for sensitive and oily skin.” _ Maddison

The Clear Skin Probiotic Masque from Eminence is a great face mask for acne prone skin. I have recently been struggling with acne and when I last got a facial, the esthetician used the Clear Skin Probiotic Masque and it left my face feeling cool and clean for the rest of the day. I loved the way it kept my skin feeling clear and refreshed. I bought the mask and use it once a week and have already begun to see improvement in my skin. I cant ever stop touching my skin!

Le Reve offers a Hydroquinone Alternative For Dark Spots
Finally, there’s a Hydroquinone alternative for dark spots at Le Reve Organic Spa & Boutique. Hydroquinone is a toxic chemical that is prescribed to help treat dark spots.
What cause dark spots
Melasma or dark spots can be caused by a few different things such as pregnancy, skin trauma, birth control pills, or other hormone replacement therapy. Many people look for a dark spot corrector to help lighten the spots or even greatly reduce them. Melasma occurs when the melanocyte cells located in the bottom epidermis layer of skin produce melanin. Melanin is what makes dark spots. For people suffering from acne, the dark marks that the spots can leave behind can be quite an issue for some. With that being said, there are methods such as visiting a skincare clinic like victorian cosmetic institute to undergo skin needling sessions, as this is said to help reduce dark marks. This may be something worth looking into.
Hydroquinone works by inhibiting the production of melanin. So what could be wrong with a product that prohibits the production of melanin? Why is there a need for a hydroquinone alternative for dark spots? Well, how about it is toxic for one. Instead, you could get a Vitamin C facial from a beauty salon in Maidenhead and enrich your skin with natural extracts. For now, let’s look at the dangers of hydroquinone below.
Dangers of Hydroquinone
If you have gone to the dermatologist for melasma, the darker pigmentation of the skin then you have probably heard about Hydroquinone. Hydroquinone is a skin-bleaching agent used for lightening melasma. This chemical does come with some drawbacks which would probably make most avoid it if they only knew. What are those drawbacks? Firstly, this chemical is known to be cytotoxic (i.e. cell-killing). It is because it causes permanent damage your pigment cells that it must be prescribed by a physician when in amounts larger than 2%. Secondly, this cream has shown in some studies to cause the skin to turn a bluish or blackish color. This occurrence is called exogenous ochronosis¹.
The Hydroquinone Alternative
The hydroquinone alternative to dark spots is called the Bright Skin Licorice Root Booster Serum.

Happy St Patricks Day from your friends at Le Reve Organic Spa & Boutique in Santa Barbara California! Check out this post from spa coordinator Daniel for more on the Stone Crop line available in our organic boutique and shop Le Reve for the greenest skin care in town!
I could bore you with the history of this holiday (I learned all about it in my History of the UK course last year,) but instead I figured I would do something we’ll all enjoy and tell you a bit about one of the greenest lines we carry here at Le Reve. And by green I mean green, not eco-friendly, even though all of our products are eco-friendly.
The Stone Crop Line
The Stone-Crop line, from Eminence , contains a body lotion, a gel wash, a serum, a moisturizer, a masque, and a hydrating mist. Each of these products is incredibly versatile and works on almost all skin types! Sensitive skin loves Stone Crop because it feels cool going onto the skin, and yet oily and rough skin reaps the benefits as well. Stone Crop itself has been used for ages as a healing tool on burns and injuries, and its work in skincare is just as effective!
The Stone Crop Body Lotion is a hydrating lotion for freckled, sun damaged, or sensitive skin types. It gently lightens pigmentation and age spots while at the same time prevents new occurrences. Years of sun damage can be erased to bring back skin that os soft, supple, and looks radiantly replenished.
The Stone Crop Gel Wash is a delicate gel cleanser for the face and eyes. It deeply cleanses the skin without any drying effects, and even the most irritable skin types will be calmed and hydrated. The wash is especially effective for those with an uneven skin tone and blemishes.
The Stone Crop Serumcreates high-potency hydration for uneven skin types. Your skin will look years younger after one application and will greatly benefit from the antioxidants.
