A while back I was invited to the launch of EMK Beverly Hills skincare at Escentials Paragon outlet and today I’m excited to be sharing with you their star product and more!
As their names says, this brand hails from US, Beverly Hills, where many Hollywood celebrities reside. The brand was founded by Emilia Karsh, a professor and chemist who wanted to help her friend who suffered burn scars on the face. She applied the derivatives of human placenta which helped her friend recover and thereafter developed a line of products made from botanical placenta extract which is similar to the human placenta that helps expedite the healing process; thus EMK Beverly Hills was born. The brand was originally only available through dermatologists who recommended it to celebrities like Victoria Beckham; who has been using it for a decade now. Magazine also reports that Simon Cowell is a huge fan of their anti-aging face serum and face mask and the EMK representative told me that Cowell uses half a bottle (too extravagantly) on the face each time and buys them by the dozen.
The EMK Beverly Hills Anti-Aging Facial Cleanser Anti-Aging Facial Cleanser is a gentle and light cleanser that promises to exfoliate, hydrate and repair. It also comes with a light medicinal scent that’s reminiscent of cough syrup (no kidding). The cleanser contains hyaluronic acid and shea butter to restore the skin’s natural moisture balance. What I like about this cleanser is the light texture which feels luxurious, moisturizing and leaves the skin fresh without drying it out. However I don’t feel its supposed exfoliating effects. This is the first anti-aging facial cleanser I’ve used, as I previously tend to use facial cleanser that leaves my slightly oily skin feeling tauter. Therefore I use this in the morning and use a stronger facial cleanser in the night. I would recommend this facial cleanser especially for people with dry and sensitive skin.

I personally tend to be wary of night cream as they tend to be too enriching for me and cause me to breakout especially in our warm and humid weather. However I am quite in love with this EMK Beverly Hills Supra Night Recovery Cream because even though it’s a cream, it’s light and it absorbs into the skin very quickly. Plus it has a botanical/fresh floral scent which I love! The cream promises to combat wrinkles, firm and hydrate. I can’t be sure about the wrinkles (thankfully they haven’t showed up), but it definitely absorbs into the skin to firm and hydrate! This EMK Beverly Hills Supra Night Recovery Cream has worked well for me in our Singapore weather and I can imagine it will work great across dry and cold weathers too, I recommend it as an all around ideal night cream for everyone. 🙂
EMK Beverly Hills 3 in 1 Live Anti-Aging Facial Mask is the pleasant surprise and my favourite of the 3 products in review today! Again, I have a misconception that Anti-Aging products are heavy and too enriching for me. However this product completely proved me wrong and it’s a total winner. The EMK Beverly Hills 3 in 1 Live Anti-Aging Facial Mask promises to 1. Detoxify, softens and soothes, 2. Stimulates and boosts collagen, 3. Revitalizes & deeply hydrates. You can use this either as a 15 min mask and wash away, or apply generously and leave it in for a night and wash in the morning. I tried both and I LOVE the effect after leaving it in for a night and I would recommend the latter strongly. EMK Beverly Hills 3 in 1 Live Anti-Aging Facial Mask definitely hydrated, calmed and clarify my blemished skin, after leaving it in overnight, I awake to refreshed skin that’s clearer and brighter. I’ve been recommending this to my friends and it’s now on par with my other Holy Grail item, Estee Lauder’s Advance Night Repair. It’s that good, guys. I strongly recommend this EMK Beverly Hills 3 in 1 Live Anti-Aging Facial Mask for folks looking for a mask that will make your tired and blemished skin feel and look better/great after a night’s sleep!
Thank you EMK Singapore for the event invite and products for review!
