The site is so pretty and organized but SO slow. I swear a God it's been 10 days that I am working on placing my order. It's so slow first to select foundation, than to pick the size, then the rest. Couple of times I tried to place an ordered, and by the time I figure out what I want what I already placed in the cart was long gone (don't think about taking toilet break, when you come back your cart will be empty). Finally what I did last night, I searched thorough web site writing down in word document product names that I wanted to sample, and then I just entered the names from my list. All this took me 2 HOURS. Whatever web server they use it is just plain awful. Overall site look is nice but speed is like internet in 1989 (when it first came up). Now I just have to wait to get my samples. I hope that will be faster then their web site. Good luck to you Sim!

Hi Sim

 

It's not computer it's the web server they use for there web site. It's EGMinerlas web site technical problem. I hope they noticed that and they will fix it, because I was ready not to order from them after so many failed attempts.

I have used their two toned clay soap and toner and moisturizer/serum for oily and acne skin and I love this stuff. The clay soap is like a mud mask but in a bar. I will say that the moisturizer/serum stuff is definitely more for people with oily skin who also are fighting acne but it's great stuff.

Hi carly,

 

I received my package..wow very impressive, I got 5 samples free...ooooo. The clay soap is so huge...phew. I tried one shade today and it made me very greasy..not sure if its the moisturiser. Im going to be on my testing spree from today.

Just one question carly..the clay soap has two sides..how do i use it. I just cut abit of the soap, dun wanna waste it. this soap will last me for a year i tink..lols..its that huge, worth the money.

 

thanks carly.

Thanks Carly for this review. I have ordered from this company 4 times already and can't say enough about how excellent the foundations, eye shadows, and finishing powders are. I also ordered some bath and body and skin care over the weekend but haven't gotten it yet. I love this company makeup, prices, and the customer service is so helpful. She worked with me until we found my perfect foundation in Cover Me and now that is my favorite foundation (not sure cause I love Youthful Glow too so much)

 

Hi Emmy, what foundation did you try? I missed that soap and just placed an order. I'm going to contact and see if they will add it to my order. Thanks for the review.

I cut the bar in half Emmy, cause you're right it's huge. The orange side I use as a mask type of treatment about 3 times a day. I apply it on wet face and allow to sit for 15 minutes then rinse well. that side has the moroccan clay and rhassoul clay. The other side (green) I use everyday to wash my face night and moirning, it has green clay and bentonite clay. Both sides have Essential oils but I'm not sure which on which sied.

Emmy,

I finally got around to looking more at the EG minerals site. WOW, there are A LOT of products on that site! - I think I could look at it for quite a while and still not see everything. I saw they have face primer, eye primer, and setting spray at very reasonable prices. I haven't looked much at the makeup yet!

Anyway, in my browsing I saw that they have something called Bright and Even cream that says it fades acne scars. I was looking at it because I have uneven skin tone (lots of redness which I think is probably from too much sun!) so I was wondering if that cream would help the redness any.

I have the Rhassoul soap from EGM and it's for deep cleansing. I don't think it will do anything for clearing red marks or fading them. I could be wrong but maybe if you email them. I think it's just for deep cleansing and fighting oily/acne skin.

My only "little" complaint about the EG minerals website so far is that some of the pages take a long time to load, and it seems like my cart empties quickly. I will be trying to fill my cart and get interrupted by child or pets smile.gif and then when I try to go back my cart has already emptied itself. That's happened to me a couple times now.

I finally got a chance to look at the foundations though. The descriptions are easier to choose from than what I expected. I also see that the Cover Me (heavy coverage) has NO zinc oxide, making it pretty much a must-try thing for me.

I hope I can get my cart filled and checked out one of these days. smile.gif

That happened to me and I hit the back button on my browser and it actually had my cart saved! I agree that at one time that site was so slow but lately it's been fine for me.

Would you say that their foundation colors cross over formulas the same? Is your color in mineral form the same as their liquid form?

 

I am itching to try these guys but really need to wait, I just spent $40 on Lauress! lol

    • Careprost is a regenerating agent that was originally developed to treat hypotrichosis and restore healthy eyelash growth. The product is a sterile solution that should be applied externally, treating them with the growth lines of the upper eyelashes and eyebrows.  Perfect eyelashes complete the look of your eyes; they add beauty to you and make you look attractive. Fuller eyelashes not only define your eyes but also sharpen your facial features. Eyes with long lashes look bigger and brighter. Whatever might be your skin’s complexion, your sharp features make you glow even in your dark skin color. The cosmetic market has a wide variety of eyelashes of different colors, length, density, and curvy ones etc. which you can wear with ease. But are these fake eyelashes are much being easier to apply or they are actually hassled. Putting fake eyelashes is a tough task and make the process troublesome is to make them intact for a long duration, controlling your hands to not to touch them. Using fake eyelashes is a temporary solution; it does not give you a natural look.
    • Yeah I totally agree  that the trends of fashion of clothes is growing with the passage of time so it's needed for everyone of clothes as make your appearance very obvious and awesome ..
    • Yes, it is quite good. Why do you ask this?
    • But what if she CAN'T afford experimenting with different products? That might really make the situation worse and harm her hair even more... Same with home remedies. If your really want to change your hairstyle then hair extension is a good option because you won't damage your hair and scalp. You can actually lookup the tutorials on the web, but videos on Youtube are more descriptive.
