I was honored to be contacted by skin care company EVOLOGIE, which is: "Skin care at it's most evolved" according to their site.

Learn more about them here.

I am also helping to host and promote their amazing giveaway - it is for 6 months worth of products! How cool is that?

Enter the Giveaway HERE!  You have until Feb 28th to do so!

To help me experience the brand, they sent me a starter kit to review and share with you.

As of this morning, Jan 27th, I've used the system only twice, but my skin is feeling good so far, no irritation, tightness, or reddening that often comes when you switch over to a new product.  Good start!

I wanted to share more info on the products with you!  Here is what I was sent:

Stay Clear Cleanser


20130126_111331

On the website, it is described as:
EVOLOGIE STAY CLEAR CLEANSER is an advanced, non-drying formulation containing natural cleansing agents, antibacterials, and keratolytics to unclog pores, remove oil, bacteria and debris while maintaining your skin’s natural pH balance.  Lycopene, a powerful antioxidant, neutralizes environmental free-radicals that damage skin.  Chamomile and honey extracts will leave your skin feeling refreshed and moisturized.
The Problem: Most cleansers are too harsh for daily use and dry out your skin. Dry skin can actually cause your skin to increase oil production and cause micro cracks allowing bacteria in.
The Solution:  STAY CLEAR CLEANSER’s natural ingredients are non-drying, used twice daily will leave your skin clean, clear, and feeling moist and smooth.

My thoughts:

As I mentioned earlier, I've only used the system twice now so I only have my initial reactions and thoughts for you.

Cleanser:

The cleanser smells nice, a clean soap smell. It's very gentle, which is important to me.  I am the type who washes her entire face - eye area and everything, I know, totally skin sin - but I do.  This cleanser does not irritate my eyes or lips.  It reminds me of my favorite discontinued cleanser, First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Wash.  I had been using Origins Checks and Balances but its a little stripping for winter for my skin.  I plan to keep using the EVOLOGIE cleanser and I'll get back to you on how it goes!

Serum:

The serum has a silky texture.  It doesn't cause any stinging or tightness, but I should mention I usually only get pimples during my cycle and when under great stress - which is getting to be more and more of a daily thing -aaaah! LOL.  Anyway, I do have a few breakouts now, but the product still caused zero discomfort.

Cream:

The moisturizer has been a pleasant surprise.  It was the smallest container of the three, so I tried to use the smallest less-than-pea sized amount, and it covered very well.  This morning I see no dry spots or patches.  It was soothing and not stinging when applied.  I have not tried it under my regular makeup because I try to let my skin breathe and go makeup free on the weekends, but I shall try this coming week and report back on that, too.

Thanks to EVOLOGIE to letting me try these products.

Remember to enter the GIVEAWAY before the end of February for your chance to win months of product free!
