New Year, New Skin // Evolve Beauty Review!


Hey lovelies, and Happy New Year! Hope you've had an amazing start to 2018 (mine's not been the best since I had my first day back at school today) but New Year is literally one of my favourite times because no matter what resolutions I plan on sticking to, it's a fresh start for me and my blog too! By the end of 2017, I really felt like I found the themes and style of my blog that I really wanted to keep to - everything to do with health, food, positivity and that 'fresh-natural' kind of style that fits Just Morgs. And going along with that natural theme, one of my New Year's resolutions was to experiment more with simple and natural skincare products this year, and this is when I disovered Evolve Beauty. 

I originally met the people behind this skincare brand at the WeHeartMonday's event in December (literally the most passionate and lovely people!) where they talked me through all their products and their cruelty-free company, and after this they very kindly offered to send me a box of full-size products to try out if I was interested. I was super enthusiastic to change up my skincare routine from my usual alcohol-based cleansers or face scrubs that are often filled with nasty parabins, so I've been using all these products recently and to cut it short: I LOVE THEM. I can rarely rave about skincare like this but these products are literally some of my favourites I've ever tried (plus all natural and cruelty-free yas!) and I thought I'd do a review showing you guys everything about them.  


HYALURONIC SERUM 200 (£30)


This pure clear serum for normal to dry skin contains 200mg hyaluronic acid per bottle, proven to hydrate skin from within and plump up fine lines and wrinkles. Organic pomegranate extract softens and protects. Delicately fragranced with organic rosewater. "

The first thing I tried (which was originally in my Gift Bag from the event) was this Hyaluronic Serum. The serum comes in a little pump bottle, and feels a lot to me like a light facial oil that just absorbs instantly into my skin. I've said before that I'm not a fan of thick moisturisers for my face, or the cream kind that clogs up my pores because I already have quite oily skin, but this has become my new favourite products to replace that! It's super light and nourishing and already, after using this each night for the past couple of weeks, my skin is looking so much brighter. It's one of the most expensive products out of this range but the kind that will last for a long time and actually worth it to me! 

DAILY DEFENCE MOISTURE MIST (£10)


"  A potent facial mist with an organic Mexican cacti elixir to calm irritated skin whilst firming, protecting and increasing skin hydration. African Moringa peptides protect skin cells from pollutants and purify the skin. Hyaluronic Acid deeply hydrates.   "
                                                                                         

The Daily Defence Mist was a new product Evolve Beauty sent me, and I was really excited to try it because from what I read it sounded a lot like a toner which I've never tried before! This is amazing for a 'quick-fix' sort of hydration for your skin, all you do is spray a little and your skin is left feeling refreshed and hydrated. I've started using this before putting on makeup, but you can actually apply it throughout the day even over makeup (and you're still mascara smudge-free!)



GENTLE CLEANSING MELT (£8)


"  This luxurious cleansing balm contains nourishing organic baobab oil that soothes and hydrates. Natural sugar extracts gently combine with water to turn into a creamy milk that rinses away clean, leaving skin clean, calm and hydrated   "


The next thing in the box was this 'Gentle Cleansing Melt,' which I thought would be great as a rich balm to remove makeup instead of my usual miscellar water  and 100% natural of course too. The actual product is almost goey in texture, but like you can see from the pictures, after working it into the skin you just add water and it becomes a milky liquid that easily washes of and leaves the skin feeling cleansed and refreshed. Definitely feels like a more decadent and rich cleanser compared to my normal ones! 


RADIANT GLOW ORGANIC FACE MASK (£20)


"  This rich mask blended with raw cacao powder and clay revitalises and purifies, whilst coconut granules buff the skin to silky perfection. Natural sugar extracts turn the exfoliating mask into a creamy milk on contact with water that rinses off easily, leaving skin smooth, moisturised and calm. Fragranced with Organic Vanilla oil.  "

I had originally tried this as a mini-sample in my gift bag and LOVED it, so when Evolve Beauty asked me if there were any products in particular I'd like to try this was the first one on my mind! The product itself literally smells like chocolate brownie and it's the perfect all-purpose mask which left my skin feeling really soft and radiant. The only thing I would say when it comes to this mask is those with sensitive skin may not enjoy it as much because of the cacoa powder and coconut in it, make it quite a grainy mask that exfoliates when washing off and may be a little irritant. You may also find Lush face masks (also made from very natural ingredients) for a better price.  


In the box also came 3 little sample pots which you'll get when you order products from the website! These are so cute because they allow you to try a little one-use version of some of their products and in my box I got a sample of the Daily Renew Face Cream, the Natural Face Wash, and the Radiant Glow Mask. Another thing I love about all these products in general, is the packaging! It's so simple and stripped-down with a list of all the ingredients on the label of each product (that's not the length of your arm like most skincare products) and so it really reflects that natural and organic theme that Evolve Beauty has. 

Hope you enjoyed this review, and if you're looking to change up your skincare routine in 2018, this could be a great place to start!
