I'm SO happy with your Blemish Serum that I wanted to give you a testimonial about my experience with the product. I've been struggling with acne since I was 14 years old (I'm now 26 years old). I have tried everything from ProActiv, SkinID, a range of oral and topical treatments prescribed by my dermatologist, used very high-quality and expensive makeups and face wash, and have tried an array of over the counter acne products. Some attempts have offered minimal improvement with my acne, but usually at the cost of excessive dry/red skin or severe side-effects from the oral treatments.
My mom passed through Ashland on a business trip a few months back and came into your store while killing time. She picked up a bottle of the Blemish Serum for me to try, and even though I was apprehensive about trying yet another treatment which most likely wouldn't improve my face... I decided to give it a shot.
To my surprise, I started noticing a huge improvement in my face after about 5-6 consistent weeks of using the Blemish Serum! I've attached a picture so that you can see the difference for yourself. Both images were taken with my camera phone when I was wearing no makeup, and have not been altered. The "before" picture was prior to using the Serum, and the "after" picture was taken about 3 months after using the Serum (which I still continue to use every night).
I honestly can't thank you enough for developing a Blemish Serum with all natural products. It's very gentle on my skin and doesn't give me ANY side effects (such as dry/red skin). My face has never looked better in over 10+ years of battling my acne!! I can't believe all this time I've been paying so much for dermatology bills, only to have a bottle of Blemish Serum be the answer to all my acne problems.
I rave about this product to all my friends and family, and I'm overwhelmed with joy each morning when I wake up to find a clear face. Thank you for being an answered prayer!! Please feel free to use anything in this testimonial and/or my before & after picture to prove the effectiveness of this product.
"I wanted to tell you that I found out about your soaps when I was visiting my parents recently in Oregon. I stayed for 3 weeks, and during that time, the eczema I'd had for 3 years on my hands and feet disappeared. When I got back here, it returned. While discussing this with my parents, we determined that it was the Emz Blendz soap that they keep by the bathroom sink and in the shower that must have done the trick. So I ordered some a few weeks ago, and sure enough, my eczema disappeared again."
"Thanks so much for making such a great product! I'd tried so many others...including an all natural handmade soap by (company's name deleted) at the Portland Saturday Market which was called 'Eczema Relief.' No results. So it's funny that I found yours by accident."
"You would not believe my hands, since I started to use that soap!!!!! It is really amazing....I mean really amazing! Nothing has ever worked (with eczema), and now just changing my soap? I have a hard time believing it after all these years, but the proof is in the pudding!!!!! Thank you so much."
"We love this store! Coming to Ashland for plays every year we stock up! Thanks for yummy-smelling natural stuff that works!"
"Thank you for being there when I want quality handmade natural products! Yours are the best on the Net!"
These soaps and the sugar scrubs make my skin feel so good! The soap has so much good stuff in it, I have not even needed a moisturizer since I started using it! I cannot say enough about your products - I LOVE them!"
"Your soap is very relaxing. It's like a warm blanket."
“Nice! Not oily like other sugar scrubs. The Mango Tea scent is lovely."
“I have been addicted to the Tea Tree Mint scrub for years now. I can even use it on my face and it has helped my skin tremendously!"
"I’ve tried a few sugar scrubs of Emz and the Strawberry Mint is my all-time FAVORITE. It’s just a great refreshing clean feeling with a yummy strawberry twist. I’ll never use another exfoliant for my skin again.”
“My daughter has severe eczema and absolutely loves the sugar scrub. We use the Cranberry Seed and Lavender and love the scent.”
"Your stuff is a huge hit here! I know that some of our guests have already ordered products from your website. Thanks for such a great product!"
"We received our soap collection yesterday. We can't thank you enough for all your hard work in making everything so perfect. We truly love them and know that our guest will as well."
"We recently stayed at a wonderful Inn that provided your soap and we LOVED it! It was so moisturizing and smelled fantastic. I think it was the lemon verbena soap. We are planning our wedding and would love to give your soaps as wedding favors. Dou you do soaps for wedding favors?"
"Now that we carry your soaps, our guests are always asking us for little bags to take their soaps with them. This has never really happened before. Your soaps seem to last much longer and people really love it!"
"What a wonderful product. Thank you."
"Had the joy of using this soap at an Inn and for an older lady with constant skin problems, I am very picky about my facial soap... wonderful!"
"Skin Food is VERY effective at preventing stretch-marks. My twin sister has severe stretch-marks from her pregnancies, so when I got pregnant, I used Skin Food (Sandalwood Citrus) religiously and it worked! I don’t have a SINGLE stretch-mark and my first baby was 9 ½ pounds!"
"Skin Food healed my daughter’s eczema around her ankles when nothing else worked. I couldn’t believe it. It works even better than prescription creams!"
"This cream has been a Godsend! Having suffered 1st, 2nd and 3rd degree fire burns on my hand, arm, & breast 2 1/2 years ago, Emz Skin Food (Original) has been essential to my recovery, and has in fact, not only contributed significantly to my healing, but has improved the appearance of my scars, and diminished the degree of sensitivity and pain by about 98%. It seems to offer it a protective "seal", which holds moisture in; (something that damaged skin cannot do itself, as scar tissue does not produce sweat glands). The Skin Food is the only cream I've found that does NOT contain alcohol (which my burn doctors told me can damage new skin cells), and that also contains all natural ingredients (something that's very important to me, since I'm opposed to "manmade chemical concoctions" that contain preservatives and cancer-causing chemicals). The essential oils, I've learned, are naturally antibacterial, antifungal and antiseptic. (This is crucial to protecting the body from infection from such damage as a fire burn, since the skin is the only protective barrier the body has from exterior sources). I've also learned that Essential oils can also stimulate the body's own natural defense system, and Lavender in particular, is known for its exceptional ability to help heal burns. (Could this product be any more perfectly suited for me?!) "Prior to discovering the cream, I was using silicon burn patches by themselves, which get very expensive ($20 worth to cover the affected areas which lasted 2 weeks @ twice a month). When I first started using the cream, I used it in conjunction with the patches (between patch changes), and discovered that I was able to go a whole day with only 1 nightly application feeling relatively comfortable and protected. I also noticed, as did my Mother, a marked difference in the appearance* and rate of healing with the first few days of use, which blew me away after 2 years of seeing relatively little or slow improvement. *(The swelling and puffiness decreased, and my skin tone was more "normal" and less reddened).
"I received a 2 oz. Jar as a gift from my friend in December of 2004, and it lasted me over 3 months, so a little bit really DOES go a long way, and entirely worth the investment thereafter! I'm committed to using this cream for the rest of my life, and intend to share it with the nurses and doctors at the hospital where I was treated so they may pass it along to new patients. I just with I could have discovered it much sooner since it would have saved me a lot of grief, pain and discomfort, healed me and protected me from work environment hazards (forklift exhaust fumes) in the early stages of my healing process. I highly recommend it to anyone with burns! Many thanks to Emily for creating it, and my friend Nikki for sending it as a gift!"
"I love all the products I have bought through you but I have to send you a special thank you for your Skin Food.I have used it on my growing belly while pregnant and it stops any itching while also smelling AMAZING and calming. A lot of lotions for pregnancy on the market are not very pleasant to smell so I relly appreciate how appetizing Skin Food is to use and has all the right oils to keep me from getting stretch marks!! Thanks so much!!!"
