In an effort to take better care of myself, I’ve been attempting to put more thought into my beauty regime. Previously I’d just wash my face with whatever Castile soap I used to bathe with (shout out to Dr. Bronners) throw some jojoba oil on my face and keep it moving but I’m not doing myself any favors going that route. A few months ago, Evan Healy had a pop up event at my job. During this event, vendors gave mini makeovers, demoed product and taught us about proper cleansing techniques. At the end of the demonstration, I was given a choice of face care kits to try in order to get a feel for the product line. Being a lover of all things floral, naturally I chose the rose kit.
The rose kit includes Rose Geranium HydroSoul ( Hydrosoul is basically fancy floral water. They do a better job explaining what it is here.) Rose hip Treatment Facial Serum, Rose Cleansing Milk, French Rose Clay, and a Rose Vetiver Day Moisturizer.
I use the three products pictured above daily. When I first got the kit, I was a little uncertain about how well the Rose Cleansing Milk would work on my oily skin since it doesn’t produce any suds but I love this stuff. It gently washes away dirt and makeup without leaving my skin feeling dry. The rose hydrosoul has a light floral scent that tones my skin and leaves it feeling soft. A little goes a long way but I love rose water so sometimes I go a bit crazy with this. (Also it’s really good to use as a setting/finishing spray after applying make-up.) The Rose hip treatment serum didn’t really impress me. I usually use Jojoba oil to seal in moisture and it didn’t seem to be any more or less beneficial to use the rose hip serum.
The biggest surprise came in one of the smallest containers. The french rose clay is one of the best face masks I’ve ever tried. I use it as a spot treatment whenever I feel a breakout coming (because I really dont want to run out) and it always gets the job done. I’m going to look into buying a full size version of the mask asap because it’s not overly drying and it doesn’t leave my sensitive skin all red and inflamed after.
I chose not to say much about the day moisturizer because I haven’t used it. My face feels so supple after cleansing and toning that I just didn’t think it was necessary. Maybe I’ll revisit it in the drier months when my skin needs a little tenderness.
I really like this kit and it’s also cool that they don’t test on animals, they don’t use parabens or GMOs and most of the ingredients are certified organic. It’s a little pricey though so I’ll definitely be saving my coins up to buy more.
Finding the perfect skin care product involve so much trial and error. What’s your favs? Have you tried Evan Healy?
