Evolve is a British company creating an organic, cruelty free, vegan range of beauty products ranging from body creams to face serums. Even better, their company ethos is ‘ to make it easy to be healthy and green in everyday life’.
What struck me most about the products initially was the sleek look of the packing. It is minimal with clear labelling and unity across the range. I think it has quiet a scientific look to it which I quite like. I think with all eco-friendly products, whether they are beauty products or clothes, there is a misconception that you have to compromise on style and a quality, Evolve products really disprove this theory!
A cool thing about Evolve is that they have lots of their products in trial or travel sizes. I think this is a really great idea as you can never tell how your skin will react to something new, and not wanting to create unnecessary waste, being able to try in a smaller size is really helpful. I purchased the liquid Fresh Face Wash, and Gentle Cleansing Melt . Both removed all traces of makeup and left my skin smooth and comfortable with no tightness at all. To my delight I received 3 free tester pots of the hydraulic acid serum, day cream and facial ……. again a perfect way to dabble in new products with little risk both against waste and your pocket! The products did not disappoint at all. In fact they exceeded my expectation which was really pleasing, and as I mentioned before I really like the packaging. I was having a really bad spell of a breakout, and after a week of using a combination of the cleansers for a week by skin was noticeable calmer and the pores looked less noticeable. They all smell delicious too with a sweet vanilla scent.
Maybe the piece de résistance of the brand is their efforts towards recycling. They even have a whole page dedicated to recycling and the materials they use to be more Eco friendly. PET plastic is used for 75% of their manufacturing along with glass jars and bottles. Further to that they guide you on how to prepare your pots for recycling and ideas on up-cycling.
All in all, so far this is one of my favourite brands. Its ethical, sustainably responsible, and important to many of us, it doesn’t break the bank. I’ve ear marked several products for Christmas gifts and will be definitely buying the full size face wash and face cream as soon as I’ve finished the minis.
