Evy Jo & Co. Review - You Need to Read This


Ok guys, so I have to start this review by saying that it is going to be 100% honest and that I don’t like deceiving people (especially not you, my dear readers), nor do I feel the need to exaggerate the merits of a product just because it was sent to me for free. So you better believe me when I say that Montreal-based skincare company Evy Jo % Co. is simply incredible and I am so happy it exists.

Let’s take a look at the products.

IT
Prima di leggere questa recensione dovete sapere che questa è la mia opinione, onesta al 100% e che non mi piace ingannare le persone (specialmente voi, mie care lettrici), e non sento nemmeno il bisogno di esagerare i meriti di un prodotto solo perché mi è stato regalato. Ora che abbiamo chiarito questo, vi devo dire che Evy Jo & Co., brand canadese di Montreal è semplicemente incredibile e sono felice della sua esistenza.

Vediamo i prodotti.


“HYDRATE”
Moisturizing rice & oatmeal facial mask with white clay

I have used clay on my face and body before, and I usually associate it with a strange (if not unpleasant) smell and a drying/purifying effect on my skin, so I was really curious to find out whether clay can by hydrating as well. Turns out it can! After just one application it made my skin soft and velvety, which is incredible, considering that it has been through a lot in these past few days – sleepless nights, stress, heavy makeup, hormonal breakouts and nasty weather conditions, and it was showing.

The mask is very easy to prepare and apply (1 tsp, a few drops of water, mix with wooden spatula, wash off after 15 min.) and smells faintly of oatmeal. Very pleasant and the results are – I repeat – incredible.


“HYDRATE”
Maschera idratante con riso, avena e argilla bianca

Ho usato molte volte l'argilla come cosmetico, ma di solito è una cosa malodorante (per non dire puzzolente) che mi depura la pelle, ma la secca anche. Per questo ero molto curiosa di provare questa maschera per il viso che diceva di essere idratante e posso dirvi che lo è davvero! Dopo una sola applicazione ha reso la mia pelle morbida e vellutata, nonostante il fatto che in questi ultimi giorni ha sofferto molto - notti insonni, stress, trucchi pesanti, brufoli ormonali e brutto tempo hanno lasciato i loro segni... 

La maschera è molto facile da preparare e applicare (1 cucchiaino di polvere mescolato con qualche goccia d'acqua usando una spatola in legno,lasciare agire sulla pelle per 15 min.) e profuma leggermente di avena. Molto piacevole e il risultato, ripeto, è incredibile.


Before and after adding a few drops of water. Do not use a metallic dish or spoon to prepare the mask because it will compromise its efficiency.

“RENEW”
Regenerating argan oil facial serum

The first and most important thing I have to say about this product is that it is NOT oily! One thing you have to know about me is that I am obsessed with keeping my skin matte, which is why I don’t like putting oily substances on my face (except before going to bed maybe). I put a lot of money, time and effort into it, because I just hate it when my face is shiny, and I know from experience that the wrong skincare products can ruin all my hard work. Well, it’s definitely not the case here, because my skin absorbed this argan oil product in a matter of seconds. The serum finished off the work the mask started, and it quite literally renewed my tired, dry and lifeless skin. I am in awe. I can’t even believe the difference these products made. I should have taken before and after pictures... 

“RENEW”
Siero rigenerante all'olio di argan

La cosa più grandiosa di questo prodotto è che NON unge! Dovete sapere che io ho l'ossessione della pelle opaca e per questo non mi piace usare sostanze oleose sul viso (le uso eventualmente solo prima di andare a letto). Ci metto molto impegno (e tempo...e soldi...) per mantenerla opaca e so per esperienza che un prodotto sbagliato può annullare i miei sforzi. Beh con "Renew" posso stare tranquilla, perchè la mia pelle lo ha assorbito in 2 secondi d'orologio. Il siero ha intensificato l'effetto della maschera, mi ha letteralmente rigenerato la pelle del viso stanca e secca. Sono rimasta colpita. La differenza fra "prima" e "dopo" è stratosferica, avrei dovuto fare delle foto...


SOAPS
“Relax” with pink clay, ylang-ylang and pink grapefruit
Coconut milk soap

Seems like they just get it right with all of their products… I admit that I have only tried the “Relax” soap, because I didn’t want to start using both at the same time, but I absolutely loved it. It foams really well – which I didn’t expect, to be honest – and it leaves my skin soft and hydrated – something else I didn’t expect. I guess this pretty much sums it up :)

All I can say is I wish all the “big” brands maintained their promises at least half as much as Evy Jo & Co. does. So stop whatever it is you’re doing and go get your supply HERE. You won’t regret it.

SAPONI
"Relax" con argilla rosa, ilang-ilang e pompelmo rosa
Sapone al latte di cocco

Sembra che ogni prodotto di questa piccola azienda sia perfetto... Ammetto che fra i due saponi ho provato solo quello "Relax" perché non volevo iniziare a usarli tutti insieme, ma mi è piaciuto da impazzire! Fa una schiuma abbondantissima - cosa che non mi aspettavo assolutamente - e lascia la pelle morbidissima e idratata - altra cosa che non mi aspettavo. Basta così :)

Vorrei tanto che i "grandi" brand mantenessero le loro promesse come le mantiene Evy Jo & Co. (o per lo meno quasi come loro). Quindi interrompete tutto ciò che state facendo e fate rifornimeto QUI. Non ve ne pentirete.
