When recently researching the numerous organic skin care products on the market, I stumbled upon Essona Organics merely by happenstance. At first, I was intrigued by the name of the company, as it sounded very ethereal and a bit mysterious. After further investigation, I came to discover that the name Essona was actually derived and inspired by the phrase ‘essence of nature’ – the perfect description of what an organic skin care line should be.
Essona Organics was founded in 1995 by Maria Tarnev-Wydro, a European- born homeopathic physician and licensed esthetician. Using her combined education and expertise in homeopathy and skincare, Maria has successfully created a truly European-style organic skin care line that delivers measurable results without the use of any harsh or toxic chemicals. Until recently, Essona has been a buried treasure known only by those in it’s local market of Buffalo, NY. Though a little-known company at the present time, Essona Organics has the potential to be one of the biggest players in the organic skin care genre. Before I get deep into my review, let’s take a look at what make Essona Organics truly unique.
As mentioned previously, Essona Organics is an eco-green and organic skin care line that marries the science of homeopathy with the most advanced skin care research. Combining all natural botanical ingredients and the latest skin care technologies, Essona delivers products that are remarkably effective, while free of all harsh chemicals and skin irritants.
I get approached on a weekly basis to test and review organic and natural skin care products. The challenge I’ve seen with most organic skin care lines is their efficacy. Yes, it’s wonderful to know that your skin care products are chemical-free and non-toxic. However, if all natural skin care products do not deliver the desired results, you will most likely stop using them. To date, I have yet to find an all-natural and organic skin care line that produces results beyond my expectations. That is, until now.
At the risk of sounding ‘un-objective’, I was literally blown away by these amazing products. Essona truly delivers remarkable and measurable results. Please read on for specifics regarding my Essona Organics experience.
What I like?
If you’re a fan of this of this website, you’ve probably noticed that I strive to be as un-biased as possible when reviewing products. This, however, has been difficult when writing this review. I’ve been using the products for about 10 days now and the results I’ve seen thus far are stunning. Having lived in Colorado for the past two years, it’s been extremely difficult to retain any moisture in my skin. Despite the use of a humidifier, as well as numerous ‘so-called’ intensive hydrating creams, my skin has consistently grown dry and dull looking over time. I truly thought that my days of having a ‘dewy’ complexion were over (one of the caveats of living in the mountains).
Upon trying the Essona Organics products, I noticed a significant increase in the moisture and suppleness of my skin within a few days. My facial lines (particularly the ‘marionette’ lines) are significantly less pronounced, as are the frown lines on my forehead. And to my delight, my skin has taken on a radiance that I have not seen in years.
Though I’ve become obsessed with the entire skin care line, my favorite (can’t live without) products are:
These incredible products will, no doubt, be in my beauty bag forever. I am so impressed with the results I’ve seen thus far, that I cannot wait to order more from this phenomenal organic skin care line!
What I don’t Like?
Though I am now officially addicted to the Essona Organics product line and I cannot find any fault with the product line, there are a couple of things about the company that I would like to see changed:
1.) Their website leaves a lot to be desired. I find the site to be confusing, difficult to navigate and way too generic for such a high quality product. Though product ingredients are listed, there just isn’t enough information (in my opinion) to help the visitor discern which products are best for their skin type and why. These are, after all, high end products and an explanation of benefits would assist their potential customer in making the best choices.
That said, I’ve been told that the Essona Organics website is currently being revamped and their ‘new and improved’ version will be unveiled in a few months. In the meantime, please don’t delay in trying the products just because their current site is not up to par. If you have any questions, contact their customer service for assistance.
2.) Travel size bottles of the products are not available, which for me is sort of a bummer. As an avid traveler, I detest having to transfer my skin care products into the 2 ounce bottles that airlines require. I know it sounds a bit lazy – but I will make the effort, as I cannot imagine going anywhere now without my Essona Organics products in tow.
Overall thoughts … I am in love, obsessed and addicted to the Essona Organics skin care products. I highly recommend (which I rarely do) that you try this incredible product line. I am very confident that you will experience significant results and that you will be blown away by how magnificent your skin looks!
Thank you, Maria Tarnev-Wydro for creating such a phenomenal line of organic skin care products. Essona Organics may just be the best-kept secret in the organic skin care genre – but I have a feeling it won’t be a secret for long!
