I tried Evolve as a brand thanks to the Showcase Beauty Box, which featured their Satin Body Gloss. I was offered the chance to try the Evolve Liquid Radiance Glycolic Toner, and I knew I’d love to try it, as I really enjoy using glycolic acid based toners within my skincare routine. I get a lot of dry patches which tend to leave my skin feeling a little textured, and glycolic acid toners tend to really help reduce them.
Evolve Liquid Radiance Glycolic Toner
If you’re new to the Evolve Organic Beauty brand, their products are lovingly handmade in small batches at their studio in Hertfordshire, England to ensure the freshness of the precious antioxidants in the natural oils, butters and extracts.
Their products are also vegan, cruelty free and eco-friendly too. Laura, the owner of Evolve Organic Beauty, works with a small team of artisans to make each product carefully by hand, which ensures the freshness of the precious antioxidants in the natural oils, butters and extracts.
The Evolve Liquid Radiance Glycolic Toner is £20 and contains 100ml within a brown glass bottle. The bottle comes with a silver screw on cap inside the box, with a pump separately which you can screw onto the bottle once you’ve removed the silver cap. I really like their minimal, monochrome branding. It has a real clinical aesthetic, and gives me apothecary vibes.
“A 100% natural AHA / BHA liquid exfoliator to reveal instantly smoother and brighter skin. Blended with fruit AHAs including Glycolic Acid (Sugar Cane), Malic Acid (Apples) and Citric Acid (Citrus Fruits), as well as BHA Salicylic Acid from Willow Bark.
Together with Galactoarabinan from Larch Trees, it helps to boost exfoliation, reduced irritation and dryness and improve skin texture. Delicately fragranced with Organic Orange Flower Water. Preserved with a 100% natural preservative derived from sugar cane.”
The Evolve Liquid Radiance Glycolic Toner has a spray pump, and the directions on the bottle recommend applying the toner to a cotton pad, and using it onto cleansed skin. I have really sensitive skin which is just getting more sensitive as time goes on, so I’m always wary trying a new acid based product after my bad allergic reaction back in November.
However, the Evolve Liquid Radiance Glycolic Toner is extremely gentle and doesn’t cause any stinging, redness or irritation. So if you’ve been put off trying an acid within your routine, because your skin is so sensitive, this would be a fantastic ‘starter’ acid as it’s so gentle. However, even though it’s very gentle, it’s still nice and effective at sloughing away dead skin cells and revealing brighter and smoother skin.
