Introducing Evolu, Botanical Skincare Brand from NZ

If you have been following this blog for awhile, you know I get very excited over nature-derived skincare products. Personally, I prefer skincare products that has minimal chemicals and no additive ingredients. And today I want to introduce to you botanical skincare brand that came all the way from New Zealand. It is called Evolu and already arrived on our shore.

About Evolu and why it is made in New Zealand

New Zealand has a unique natural environment, evolved from millions of years of geographical isolation. Many of its plant and marine species are found nowhere else on earth, and the indigenous Maori population have acquired centuries of knowledge of the health and nutritional benefits of New Zealand's native botanicals. Among the many indigenous plants used in Evolu's formulations are widely occurring species such as Harakeke, Mamaku and Kawakawa, whose proven properties include the ability to aid healing, soothe inflammation and restore moisture.

Aotearoa New Zealand's artesian spring water is among the purest in the world. Evolu harnesses this fantastic resource, blending their botanicals with a foundation of pure New Zealand spring water to maximise their moisture-keeping benefits and maintain the natural hydration of your skin.

One of the secrets to the performance of Evolu products lies in a deeper understanding of how botanicals work when blended together. Kati's (the founder) careful selection and intuitive blending works on the principle of any successful recipe. Superior results come from fine-quality ingredients, combined in ways that complement each other for maximum effect.

To help you achieve balanced, healthy skin, Evolu believes simpler formulations work best. When only the most effective and essential actives are chosen to do the job, each can be used in concentrations that ensures it has the utmost potency - maximising its benefits to your skin.

Today I have 2 products from Evolu that I want to introduce to you all - Balancing Day Cream and Healing Lip Treatment.

Evolu Balancing Day Cream (75ml/RM232)

What it is?
With an optimal blend of moisture and nutrients this gentle formula helps regulate normal hydration and control the tendency to swing from dryness to oily sheen that typifies combination skin. The balancing and moisture-binding benefits of Kiwifruit, Blackcurrant and Meadowfoam work to keep skin looking healthy and radiant.

My thoughts:
This product is amazing to provide all day long hydration. Although the texture is a little thick when you first apply, however when even out it turns matte and thin. I find the price is a bit expensive as compared to other natural product brands for a day cream.

Aqua, Glycerin, Cetyl Alcohol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Sweet Almond (Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis) Oil, Glyceryl Stearate, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Wheatgerm (Triticum Vulgare) Oil, Xanthan Gum, Blackcurrant (Ribes Nigrum) Seed Oil, Meadowfoam (Limnanthes Alba) Oil, Beeswax (Cera Alba), Dehydraocetic Acid (And) Benzyl Alcohol, Kiwifruit (Actinidia Chinensis) Seed Oil, Tocopheryl Acetata (Vitamin E), Lemon (Citrus Limon) Oil, Sweet Orange (Citrus Aurantium Dulcis) Oil, Rosewood (Aniba Rosaedora) Oil, Olibanum (Boswellia Serrata) Oil, Clary Sage (Sativa Sclarea) Oil

Evolu Healing Lip Treatment (15ml/RM68)

What it is?
This gentle, lightweight treatment combines the anti-microbial properties of New Zealand Manuka honey with the nourishing benefits of Thyme and Rosemary. It applies easily and absorbs readily, working to soothe, repair and soften the delicate skin of the lips. Its light consistency allows it to penetrate quickly, and the convenient tube makes it perfect for travel as well as everyday use.

My thoughts:
This healing lip treatment is god-sent. It does not only protect your lips from any further damage, but it also treats the existing problem - mainly dry and flaky lips. It is expensive, but worth a try. Apply this before sleeping and you'll wake up with soft lips.
