So, I received the 4-step Emior Anti-aging bundle in the mail a couple of weeks ago. I didn’t expect to end up with the whole bundle, which was a nice surprise. I have had the opportunity to test out these products and let you know what I think free of charge in exchange for writing an honest review. All of the opinions stated in this post are mine and mine alone. I was not asked, nor compensated for posting a positive review of said products. Mommy and Ninja strives to share our honest opinions with our readers.
I do not typically like to put a lot of stuff on my face–creams, gels, lotions…none of it. My dry skin pretty much covers 99.9% of the rest of my body, but not my face. As such, I did not use the cleanser, exfoliator or the serum on my face. I used all 3 products on the back of my hand, my elbow and my leg. Yes, only one hand, elbow and leg…so that I could compare the results to my untreated hand/elbow/leg. The eye cream, obviously had to be used around my eyes. We’ll start there.
Emior Eye Cream
So what does Emior say makes this eye cream different from all the others? Emior says that they have combined the power of Jojoba Esters with Phoenix Dactylifera (Date) Seed Extract, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Poria Cocos Extract, and Rhodiola Rosea Root Extract (Source: Emior website). The idea is to stimulate collagen production and boosts antioxidants to prevent the appearance of aging.
As stated, I do not like these types of things on my face. The eye cream was no exception; I hated it. Not the cream itself, but the cream being on my face. I don’t really need an eye cream, so I don’t feel that I can give an honest opinion on the Emior Eye Cream. I can say that my skin did not have any adverse reaction to the eye cream. This is the only thing in the bundle that I could not actually smell (more on that in a moment).
Emior Gel Cleanser
We’ll move to step-1 in the 4-step Emior Anti-aging bundle now. Why is Emior better than other cleansers? Well, I prefer the gel to a cream, so that was a bonus. Emior says is formulated to not only lift away the impurities from on your skin but also protect the skin’s natural moisture barrier and restore its glow (Source: Emior website). The ingredients include Aloe barbadensis leaf juice, Pyrus Malus (Apple) fruit extracts and Glycerin. I honestly have no idea what Aloe barbadensis leaf juice is, but I really don’t know what triacylglycerol is and yet I continue to eat foods with crazy stuff like that on the ingredient list… Emior also claims that their gel cleanser help fight acne and minimizes break outs.
After washing with the Emior Gel Cleanser, my skin was indeed softer than it was after using (insert any brand of soap here). I’m not picky about the soap I wash my hands with, whatever is there is what I use. It’s usually something fruity and sometimes claims to be “moisturizing” formula…it doesn’t really matter to me. This gel cleanser doesn’t smell bad, but it doesn’t smell good either. It smells…neutral? I know, I know, smell is not as important as function and living up to the company’s claims, but I thought I would mention that (more on this topic in a moment, wait for it).
Emior Fruit Exfoliator
Step-2 takes us to the Emior Fruit Exfoliator. What makes this one different? Well, Emior uses some natural ingredients to remove dead skin and nourish the living skin. Ingredients include: Hydrogenated Jojoba Oil, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Unsaponifiables, Barley Extract, Sun flower seed oil, Pumkin Fruit Ferment Filtrate, Grapefruit peel oil, Sandalwood extract, and Radish Root Ferment Filtrate.
After typing all of that, I now realize why it smells so awful. And I mean awful. Fruit exfoliator? I thought it would have a nice fruity smell, but it does not. The ninja went so far as to say it smells like butt. It’s not quite that bad, but it’s bad.
Bad smell doesn’t mean it doesn’t exfoliate. The cream does quite a nice job of getting rid of the that layer of dry, dead skin. It got so much gross, dead skin off of me that I had to take a damp wash cloth to my leg after using the cream to wipe it all away. This product does exactly what it said it would do.
Emior Anti-Aging Serum
Step-3, here we come. The Emior Anti-Aging Serum “the power of snow algae” to eliminate signs of aging. I’ve never heard of snow algae, but we’ve already gone over that…does it matter if it works?
Does it work, though? My skin was softer and healthier-looking after using the cleanser, exfoliator and the serum.
Emior is quite pricey if you purchase through their website. If you purchase each item individually (which would be unwise) through their website, it would cost $233.99; they offer a bundle of all 4 products at $189, a savings of $44.99. ***Prices are accurate at the time of publication and may no longer be accurate*** They offer free shipping and a 30-day money back guarantee.
If you were to shop around, you could find much better prices at the time of this writing on Amazon. As of right now, all 4 would cost you $51.96 (plus any applicable tax and possibly shipping).
Would I purchase the 4-step Emior Anti-aging bundle? Not so much, but the fruit exfoliator is really nice once you get used to the odor. The products certainly appear to do what they claim to do.
