EVER skin care review
The Ever skin care line is worth taking a look at. A lot of products that I have used in the past will irritate my eyes. I like to bring the lotions right up to my lower eyelids to hydrate the area. Unfortunately, this has caused tearing and burning of my eyes. Ever skin care products are gentle and have not caused any tearing or burning of my eyes.
My skin is very sensitive, prior to starting Ever Skin care I had a lot of redness with dry fine lines. Let’s see why Ever skin care is different.
Why is Ever skin care different?
Ever skin care uses LSR10®.

What are the 4 steps involved in the Ever skin care regimen?
Ever skin care review Step 1 Cleanser
There are 2 options for cleanser.
I am 50, my skin is dry. I use the Luminous Nutrient Rich Cleansing Balm for dry/normal/sensitive skin. This cleanser is by far my favorite cleanser that I have used. Over the years I have sold Medical grade skin care regimens, private labeled and even made my own. This cleanser is truly a balm. This helps my sensitive skin. it nourishes, cleans the skin without drying it out and helps reduce redness. I am a fan of this product and will be buying more.
Unfortunately, a lot of cleansers have irritating ingredients, I avoid these as my skin is reddened when using them. They also strip the skin if their natural oils.
If you have blemish prone skin then you want to use Rebalance Purifying Gel Cleanser for oily/combination skin. This is a gentle gel cleanser that has salicylic acid which can deeply cleanse the skin. Cucumber and aloe can help soothe and hydrate the skin as he cleanser removes impurities that can lead to bumps and blemishes.
The video gives a good example on how to use the cleanser.
Ever skin care review Step 2 REVEAL Pads
I love these pads, they are gentle but do the job. Reveal pads can smooth and even out texture. The pads are meant to gently remove dead skin cells so that pores appear smaller. Over time my skin has felt firmer and I have seen age spots lighten.
The pads contain Azelaic Acid which is clinically proven to help reduce the appearance of spots. The pads also contain Willow Bark which helps clear out pores and decrease bacteria. This will lead to a reduction in blemishes.
Ever conducted a clinical study of their regimen. 86% of participants reported that REVEAL Peel Pads delivered results without irritation, leaving skin feeling smooth and refreshed. The pads contain Caviar Lime which can exfoliate without irritating the skin. Below is a video showing how to use Reveal pads.
Step 3 YOUTHFUL Quattro Peptide Face & Eye Serum with LSR10®
Powerful 20% quattro-peptide complex helps boost firmness and elasticity, leaving skin looking more lifted. This product helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes, mouth and face.
The product has several ingredients which can help improve the skins appearance.
Pentapeptide-18 can draw water which hydrates the skin and lessens lines. Whether or not these peptides can penetrate the dermis and help build collagen I am not sure. This topic is controversial in the dermatology literature.
Red algae which is an antioxidant has been shown to reduce redness.
Honokiol is a small-molecule polyphenol isolated from the Magnolia plant. It has been shown to decrease redness and inflammation.
My skin feels plumper after I use this product, it is wonderful at hydrating my skin.
Here is a video showing how to use this peptide serum.
EVER skin care review Step 4 Daylight Moisturizer
Daylight moisturizer has an SPF in it to help protect the skin from the sun’s harmful rays.The sunscreen is a chemical-free sunscreen. It provides broad-spectrum UVA/UVB with an SPF of 32 other products.
In the past I have preferred that my moisturizers not contain SPF, some of the ingredients can make my eyes tear This cream is mild which did not cause any burning. Still if you are looking to save money, use the night time moisturizer and ensure you are adding sunscreen to your routine or using makeup that has an SPF in it. That being said a lot of make up only provided SPF of 15, so ensure you are getting enough sun protection.
The moisturizer contains hyaluronic acid which hydrates and vitamin C which is an antioxidant. it has been shown to help prevent damage to the skin.
Why is vitamin C important?
- Humans cannot make vitamin C. We must acquire it from food sources such as citrus fruits and green leafy vegetables.
- Vitamin C is essential for collagen biosynthesis.
This moisturizer is available in clear or four sheer coverage shades to help match different skin tones.
Ever skin care review Hydralift Moisturizer
This moisturizer does not contain any SPF, it is recommended at night.
Overall, I would recommend the products. My biggest problem is sensitivity, I have puffed up several times from other skin care line. The products are gentle and yet hydrating.
The 4 step mini regimen can be purchased for $99
There are several add ons to the 4 step regimen
Ever skin care review of Sublime Retinol Eye Wrinkle Smoother ™ with LSR10®
The caffeine in Sublime helps de puff the eyes whereas retinol helps build up collagen. Hyaluronic Acid provides immediate and long lasting moisturization and plumping effect. Aloe Vera refreshes and helps reduce visible signs of fatigue it also helps calm the skin when retinol is used.
There is an interesting ingredient in this product, Dipeptide Diaminobutyroyl Benzylamide Diacetate also known as SYN®-AKE
SYN®-AKE was created by a Swiss pharmaceutical company, Pentapharm. SYN®-AKE is a small peptide that reportedly mimics the activity of Waglerin 1, a polypeptide that is found in the venom of the Temple Viper, Tropidolaemus wagleri. Clinical trials have shown that SYN®-AKE is capable of reducing mimic wrinkles by inhibiting muscle contractions. Dipeptide Diaminobutyroyl Benzylamide Diacetate, categorized as a neuropeptide. It is believed to block the body’s uptake of Na+, which in turn causes the facial muscles to relax and prevent the formation of expression lines (wrinkles).
95% said their dark circles were visibly diminished
92% felt their eye area was more hydrated
84% said appearance of under eye puffiness was diminished
Retinol products will help increase cell turnover and collagen production but they will also increase the skin’s sensitivity to the sun. Retinol products should be placed at night time, not in the morning where you risk sun exposure. Always apply sunscreen when using any Retinol products. Retinoids are not intended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Avoid direct contact with eyes. For external use only. Keep out of reach of children.
I like this product. I use it around my eyes and in between my brows. My eyelid skin definitely looks plumper. The lines between my eyebrows have softened. I will be reordering this product.
Ever Skin care review of face masks
The Brightener face mask increases moisture and gives the skin a dewy finish. The skin appears brighter, smoother and firmer in minutes. This creamy and light formula can be applied as a quick 10-minute mask, or can be worn overnight for a deeper treatment.
I have tried this mask, My skin definitely feels very clean after using it and I noticed my pores were smaller.
The Detox mask can be performed once to twice a week after the cleanser. The mask removes impurities and tightens pores for smooth, clear skin. Jojoba exfoliates while calendula and magnolia help soothe and reduce the appearance of redness and blemishes.
Overnight Facial serum
For deeper wrinkles, the company recommends the Overnight Facial Cellular Renewal Oil three times per week in the evening as an alternative of the the Face & Eye Serum.
The serum contains a peptide, Retinol, botanical oils and omega-3 fatty acids. The gentle formula will replenish essential moisture, smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduce visible pore size and boost skin’s radiance. The botanical oils help calm the skin as retinol can be irritating. Retinol has been on the market for many years, it is proven to assist with collagen building.
Let’s discuss some of the other ingredients. Palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 is a type of synthetic peptide compound which combines several chains of amino acids to reduce skin inflammation and the accompanying skin damage. This peptide compound is also believed to stimulate the regeneration of collagen fibers in the dermis and help other skin care ingredients penetrate deeper into the skin.
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 is made up of chains of amino acids and is thought to stimulate collagen production.
*Note, the ability of peptides in skin care to penetrate the dermic and increase collagen production remains controversial.
Teprenone has been shown to reduce the appearance of aging skin by improving dehydration and age spots. It has been found in clinical studies to improve skin moisture and the appearance of rough skin, fine lines, enlarged pores and redness in 75% to up to 100% of the test persons. The overall appearance of the skin was improved and restored to a more youthful state.
Daylight treatment concealer
This cream covers dark circles and Hyaluronic Acid fills and smooths visible wrinkles and provides long-lasting hydration. LSR10® helps to reduce the top 10 visible signs of aging with continued use. Vitamin C and light reflecting pigments also help smooth the skin and diminish the appearance of fine lines.
Peach tones neutralize any darkness around the eye area. I di not use this product as I do not have dark circles. I did see some before and after images and was impressed with what I saw.
Hyaluronic Acid fills and smooths visible wrinkles and provides long-lasting hydration. Light-reflecting pigments and Vitamin C help to smooth and visibly brighten skin tone. This intensive treatment helps reduce the appearance of puffiness, dark circles, lines and dryness for a total eye revival.
Marine polysaccharide complex works quickly to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet and firm the look of the eye area within minutes of application.
Pinoxide™ can increase blood flow around the eyes which works to decrease dark circles.
Hyaluronic acid delivers hydration hydration, smoothing the appearance of wrinkles, and promoting a flawless surface.
I have used this product without any problems such as eyelid swelling. As I had mentioned, the fact that I can use an eye product that does not worsen my eye puffiness is a plus. The eye moisturizer definitely helps blur fine lines around my eyes. I wish it helped my lower eyelid eye puffiness more. The puffiness is better with the product and I hope that the retinol cream helps build collagen lessing the puffiness even more.
Remedy Spot corrector
This is a blemish treatment that reduces the appearance of skin imperfections and discoloration. Canadian Willow herb and a biomimetic tripeptide work synergistically to minimize the appearance of breakouts and redness, while a stable form of Vitamin C helps to brighten spots.
- Salicylic Acid helps clear pores making them appear smaller.
- Vitamin C helps to brighten the appearance of skin discoloration.
- Canadian Willowherb diminishes the risk of acne.
My daughter dots this product on her acnes spots, it helps decrease inflammation and makes the spot less noticeable. Another option is Differin is over the counter now, it is a medication that can help with acne.
Do the Ever Skincare products contain fragrance?
Ever skin care uses botanicals to fragrance their products.
Any skin cream can cause an allergic reaction. it is recommended that you, “test products using the following instructions for three days, three times a day:
- Apply a small amount of the product on your jawline or neck.
- If you’re testing a cleanser, apply it for 30 seconds, and then rinse it off.
- Apply each product on a separate area.
- When you test again, reapply the products in the same area as originally applied.
- Watch for any signs of redness, dryness, irritation or swelling.
If you determine you are sensitive to a product, discontinue use immediately. You may want to consider consulting your physician for further testing to determine whether your skin may be sensitive to certain ingredient(s) so that you may avoid using products containing that ingredient in the future.”
Disclosure. I sell Ever skincare. I had mentioned that I have sold other skin care lines in the past, private labels and even made my own. I no longer have time to make my own. I am not thrilled with the current products that are available to private label but perhaps there is one that I am not familiar with. The lines that I have sold in the past were good at the time. over time the technology has changed and they have not kept up.
