Over the past few days I have had the privilege of trying out EVOLUTIONMAN‘s line of products and let me tell you, there is a lot of good stuff going on here! EVOLUTIONMAN offers everything the modern man needs in his personal grooming arsenal. There are traditional items like shave cream and face wash as well as revitalizing eye gel, concealer and nail polish for the Hollywood rock stars inside all of us.
Since this is a review of a line of products, I’ll give you my impression product by product and then give my overall impression of the line. Check out the detailed review below!
Cleanse and Shave: In my opinion, this is a great alternative to a traditional shaving cream. Let’s be honest, shaving is generally not an enjoyable experience but this product was surprisingly effective and a pleasure to use. I come from an old school camp where traditional foams are standard but EVOLUTIONMAN‘s Cleanse and Shave is more of a creamy lotion that doubles as a face cleanser which makes this a great value. After you dampen your face, you lather the product on and shave as usual. But, by far the best part of this product is the silky smooth finish. Cleanse and Shave is definitely something I could get use to using on a regular basis.
Lip Balm: There are two things that dampen my love affair with Winter and those are dry skin and chapped lips. I’m a bit of a hoarder of lip balms during the colder months so I’m glad I got the chance to try EVOLUTIONMAN‘s Lip Balm. This stuff slides on super smooth and provides long-lasting moisture. It’s definitely one of the better lip balms I’ve ever used…and that’s saying a lot!
Revitalize Eye Gel: To be honest, at first I wasn’t too keen on using the eye gel as the concept is really foreign to me. Ironically, I’ve always felt like I had a little extra puffiness under my eyes but I never really thought much about it. I’ve been using the Revitalize Eye Gel for less than a week now and observe no noticeable difference, however, when I apply I definitely notice a little tightening on the applied areas which lets me know it’s putting in work while I go about my day. I’ll continue to use and report back at a later date.
Moisture Protect SPF 20: To be honest, I was a bit challenged with the Moisture Protect. It’s designed to be a twice daily moisturizer to be used in conjunction with Wash & Buff and the Revitalize Eye Gel. I found this product challenging to apply, especially with my goatee and occasional stubble getting in the way. After several trials, I realized that I had initially over-applied the product and learned that a little bit goes a long way. The only real downside is that it does smell like sunscreen, but the smell is light and dissipates relatively quickly.
Wash and Buff: This is the mac daddy of all fash washes. I never want to run out of it. Wash and Buff is easily the best face wash I’ve ever used! It’s creamy, luxurious and well worth the price. The consistency is pretty smooth even though it gently exfoliates with what feels like the finest sand from some luxurious Caribbean island destination. The smell has a menthol, medicinal type note and you can definitely feel it working when in use. Plus, like some of the other EVOLUTIONMAN products, it lists Tea Tree Oil as a key ingredient. It doesn’t get much better than that!
Overall Impression: Generally, I am seriously impressed with EVOLUTIONMAN products. While I had a bit of trouble with the Moisture Protect, I found that as a brand EVOLUTIONMAN really understands men’s grooming. I got everything I never asked for and with the Wash and Buff at its helm, this line definitely has a long time customer in me. Anything from this line would be a great gift for yourself, a brother or friend who is looking for consistently great products for everyday grooming. Check it out at www.ev0lution-man.com!
