New Products... Eve Lom

(My skin: Fair colouring, Normal - though prone to both dry and oily areas, Hormonal break-outs usually around my chin/neck, Dark under-eye, in my thirties so some anti-aging concerns)

Update: my order from Sephora to Youshop arrived 22 May (order date 12 May). It was free shipping from Sephora to Youshop, and then NZ$26.75.

All up, the Eve Lom travel set + shipping cost me approx. NZ$140.

Worth it?... Yes!

I've used the Rescue Mask once so far, but I have used both cleansers and the TLC Radiance Cream daily since they arrived.

My skin is soft and smooth, and mostly clear. It takes off my makeup, though it's not easy to get rid of my mascara (They're Real by Benefit).

I previously used a face cloth when washing my face, but I am loving the Eve Lom muslin cloth.

I'm going to keep using these travel sizes before purchasing any of the larger sizes, however I have ordered the Eve Lom Eye Cream.

After a week I am super happy though :)


Recently I've changed from my skincare products from Decleor to Oasis Beauty... But I'm still looking for something new. The change sprung from a reaction I had around my eyes - a random dermatitis that has random causes, and an anti-malaria medication for treatment ugh!!

So I moved from Decleor to Oasis Beauty, which is a lovely New Zealand natural product - but I don't think it's right for me.

I'm also using an oil as my day/night/eye moisturiser. It's by Vede and Crede - a New Zealand product, made with organic argan oil. My wonderful beautician suggested the Replenishing Serum (which has Organic Virgin Opuntia Ficus Indica Seed Oil, Satalum Album Oil, and Jasminum Officinale Oil - and that's it! No artificial additives).

I keep coming back to Eve Lom though. I'm a sucker for a good review: I can't help but swoon over a product that is described by Vogue as ‘probably the best cleanser in the world.’

I decided to finally try Eve Lom by grabbing this travel set from Sephora. It contains:

- 1 oz Cleanser and Muslin Cloth
- 0.5 oz Rescue Mask 
- 0.85 oz TLC Radiance Cream 
- 1.7 oz Morning Time Cleanser

Of course, Sephora doesn't ship to New Zealand - thankfully there is YouShop (once again!). Free shipping from Sephora to YouShop in Oregon, and (I got the email today) NZ$26 to ship from there to here (I bought a couple of other things too hehe). 

I can't wait to try my new goodies, but in the meantime:

Eve Lom's Cleanser is an iconic, multiaward-winning cleanser that cleanses, decongests, tones, exfoliates, and removes even the most stubborn waterproof makeup. It has forever changed the face of cleansing as it is expertly balanced for all skin types, skin concerns, and environmental conditions. With its signature blend of four aromatic plant oils, specially woven 100 percent cotton Muslin Cloth, and quick routine, skin is left radiant with a smoother, more refined texture. The difference can be seen instantly and just keeps on improving with use.

Eve Lom's Rescue Mask is a regular weekly deep cleanse or an emergency mask for when your skin needs extra attention. Whether your skin is blotchy, suffers from irritable break-outs, jet-lag, or morning-after puffiness, this hard-working and versatile mask will get you back on track. Formulated to give a deep cleanse without drying, and to gently decongest pores and absorb excess oil, Rescue Mask smooths and conditions the skin’s surface calming redness and irritation and leaving you refreshed. Rescue Mask has won the InStyle’s award for “Best Mask for Congested Skin” for seven consecutive years. It is formulated WITHOUT Parabens, Sulfates, and Phthalates. 

Eve Lom's TLC Radiance Cream is a lightweight anti-ageing moisturiser that promotes a more radiant and youthful complexion. This complexion-boosting night treatment hydrates deep into the skin to maximise radiance and boost elasticity. It also protects against environment-induced signs of aging and smooths fine lines and wrinkles, leaving your skin looking lifted and youthful. It is formulated WITHOUT Parabens, Sulfates, and Phthalates. 

Eve Lom's Morning Time Cleanser is a lightweight, rinse-off cleansing balm, formulated to help your skin look and feel soft, youthful, and radiant every day. The perfect partner to the renowned original cleanser, Morning Time Cleanser revitalises and wakes up your skin. EVE LOM has created this ultra refreshing alternative for those who like to cleanse in a unique way at a different time of day. This quick, easy, two-minute wash-off balm uses the four EVE LOM signature, aromatic cleansing oils, together with papaya fruit enzyme and carrot oil to leave skin wonderfully radiant, fresh, and balanced.

This lightweight balm cleanses without drying the skin and removes even the most stubborn waterproof makeup. It decongests and helps support natural collagen production while exfoliating, toning, brightening, and minimising the appearance of pores. Recommended for all skin types, it softens and produces a beautiful, healthy look. It is formulated WITHOUT Parabens, Sulfates, and Phthalates. 

It's going to be interesting - not using a toner as part of my routine for the first time in forever, and ignoring any independent exfoliator products (as the cleanser and cloth gently do this). Again I have gone for a cleanser that doesn't require a separate eye-makeup remover - I can't wait to see if it will effectively remove my Benefit 'They're Real' mascara, as both Decleor's cleansing milk, and Oasis Beauty's cleanser had trouble with it!

It will seem utterly strange cutting my day and night routines to generally TWO steps: mornings I will try the Morning Time Cleanser + my Vede and Crede oil; night I will try the original Cleanser + TLC Radiance Cream. I like to use a mask around once a week, so I will try the same with the Rescue Mask.

I'll report back when my products arrive :)
