Review: Evolve Organic Beauty Gentle Cleansing Melt

Review Evolve Organic Beauty Gentle Cleansing Melt

"Pure, unrestrained cleansing pleasure for normal to dry skin, and perfect for sensitive skin. Natural sugar extracts gently combine with water to turn the clear balm into a creamy milk that rinses away clean, leaving skin calm and hydrated. Nourishing Baobab oil soothes and hydrates. This completely natural, soap-free cleansing balm is beautifully fragranced with hypoallergenic organic Vanilla and can be used with a hot cloth for added pampering." Evolve Organic Beauty

I am not sure exactly when it happened but Evolve has undergone a transformation. The pink and purple packaging has been replaced with fresh labelling and apothecary style brown bottles. I like the new look, it’s stylish and on trend with competitors. I have tried the original Evolve Gentle Cleansing Melt but I never blogged about it because it did not make a lasting impression. It was a balm in a tub so I was intrigued to see it is now bottled and that tempted me to buy it again. I assume there must have been a change in the ingredients but I don't have the old ones to hand to say how it differs however it remains natural, organic and free from SLS, parabens, petrochemicals etc. 

Review Evolve Organic Beauty Gentle Cleansing Melt
The new formula is a thick syrup like texture which I find is easiest used on slightly damp skin otherwise it can be a little difficult to massage across your face. As the name suggests this cleanser “melts” with water, it becomes a milky solution which can simply be washed away. You can do this over the sink or in the shower but I like to use a warm damp cloth. The scent is a light vanilla with a hint of citrus and if my memory is correct I find it an improvement on the original fragrance which for me was too sweet. Weirdly, the scent reminds me of a childhood toy. Yes, totally random but first time I used the cleansing melt I couldn't place the familiarity and then I remembered this baby doll I carried around with this intriguing sweet fragrance.

I honestly like how this cleanser leaves my skin feeling soft and not stripped of moisture. For me, the added bonus is no linalool so I am not having any issues with irritation to my dermatitis. I think Evolve Gentle Cleansing Melt is a keeper and I can definitely see myself repurchasing.

Have you tried any products from Evolve? Which one would you recommend?

  2. I really like the apothecary-style packaging. It's simple and clean, which to me gives the product a little more credibility. I feel like companies that have really expensive packaging don't invest a lot of money in the quality of ingredients that they're using (most of the time.)
    This totally looks like something I would use -- especially this time of year. My skin is always begging for moisture!

    1. it's true some companies will go overboard with packaging and then pass those costs on to the customer, it's why I focus on ingredients and not branding :)

  3. This product has gone through so many packaging changes over the years - tub, then a tube, now a bottle! I only tried the middle, tube version, but I may have to pick this new one up at some point too! Sounds lovely :)
