EVOLU, New Zealand is in Town!

Friday, July 26, 2013

Often, we talk about how to eat healthily and we look for different type of food to target different function be it for healing, prevention or beautifying our skin. It reflects on our skin and movement as well as our mood based on what we consume daily! The next obvious thing you would notice it what ever product we apply to our skin does the same reflection like what food did to our body and mind. Try using a product with your favourite scent say strawberry and another product with a herbs scent and tell me how you feel when using this two different product? I am sure you feel much happier when you are using the strawberry ones right? The same theory like when you eat chocolate when you are feeling depressed.


My next question is do you actually bother to look into the ingredient of the skin care product you are going to purchase or you only look at the super amplified advertisement and dap the product on your skin and if you like the feeling the product is sold? I am before this as I don’t have much knowledge on this back then. If you want your skin to look healthy and radiant, you got to start to pay attention on the ingredient of the skin care product you plan to buy.

Recently, I was introduced to this new skin care brand, Evolu from New Zealand where their product are all made from natural ingredient like plant and fruits that are sourced from New Zealand as well as other countries. I was impressed by the concept behind the creation of Evolu’s skin care product.

“Healthy skin depends on its natural processes being in balance. Evolu nourishes and restores this balance, returning your skin to it’s beautiful best.”

In the recent launch that I attended, Mr Frederick Loh, Executive Director of Skin Topic says they are delighted to have Evolu onboard as it’s brand philosophy is a perfect fit to the existing range of natural skincare & body care product at Skintopic.

Have you heard of Skintopic before?

“Skintopic offer a wide range of skincare, bath and body products and fragrance diffusers from New Zealand. Some of the brands that they carries are Linden Leaves, Olive &Tebe, Wild Ferns and last but not least Evolu.”

Kati Kasza, the founder of Evolu is inspired by her belief in the power of plants to transform the skin where she created a simple yet potent botanical system. Every Evolu formulation is customised to nourish and restore balance, returning your skin to its beautiful best.

“For enduringly beautiful skin, the first priority is hydration – pure and simple”

Aotearoa New Zealand is celebrated for being an unspoiled country covered in lush green forests, snow-capped mountains and vast open spaces. The miracle artesian spring water is among the purest in the world. Evolu harness 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.

“Longer list of ingredients doesn’t necessarily make a better product. Evolu believe in simpler formulation that help to achieve balanced and healthy skin.”

Kati demonstrate how the Evolu’s skin care range score on Amy’s skin.

If you have gone through the long list of the ingredients and it’s respective function, you know what could different ingredient do to your skin. So the next time you do skin care shopping make sure you take a look on the ingredient on the product label before you finalized your purchase.

**Those who read through this long list of product description thank you so much for your patient reading through it..

I was given this six tier tower which contain day care and night care that is super convenient to bring around during travel!! It can fit easily in my bag, my jeans pocket and my clutch too… It can also be separated into two tower as there is a spare lid given in the box.

Evolu17Evolu’s Travel Tower

This tower is suitable to be used by all skin type. I have tried the day cream, it is super concentrated. The scent is strongly infused by the scent of the natural plants and fruits they used in producing the end product. It feels like they are really generous in the amount of ingredient they included in the product. Thought it may need sometime to set when apply on my face but it’s super hydrated and it’s not sticky too. If your skin is very dry and dehydrated or your constantly exposed to dry temperature environment (i.e air conditioned room) this is the product that you should look for!! I love to apply this at night so when I wake up the next morning my face feel soft and supple.
