Evolu beauty team recommends: products to safeguard your skin from the sun


Through the silly season and the coming months, we tend to see more sun. This can be tough on the skin!

This is why we asked the Evolu Beauty Team to each recommend their products of choice to combat the harsh summer sun.

We think you’ll love what they’ve come up with!

Founder: Kati Recommends

What better product than the Protective Day Cream SPF30? You know it works, it soaks in quickly and with clear zinc as the UVA/UVB barrier, it’s safe for your skin and the environment. Unisex too!

Pair this with a bucket sunhat or a gorgeous Nonna Hat from Marle. Made from gorgeous heavyweight cotton, these are super-convenient to fold up into a bag with your summer skin care.

Creative Director: Paul

Try the Triple Action Oil Control Clay Mask if you suffer oily skin or have a hairless scalp like me! It’s a great deep cleanser, takes literally minutes to dry and it balances the oil in my skin as opposed to stripping it, so my skin doesn’t dry out.

I also recommend washing your face with these soft cotton washcloths from Bianca Lorenne which my daughter gave me for Christmas last year.

Bailee: Social Editor

Cherish the gift of rested skin with the Rehydration Rescue Masque. It works its magic during slumber and rehydrates and plumps the skin. Perfect for the stresses of summer and Christmas madness, plus it’s excellent for skin sensitivities too.

Team it up with the overnight luxury of a Slip pillow case. Super soft, comforting and cooling in summer, the Slip pillow cases will work harmoniously with the Rehydration Masque. And as a bonus, these pillowcases help hairstyles survive bedtime and last an extra day!

Office Manager: Helen

I’m not a sun lover, so prefer to get my tan from a bottle!  The Invigorating Body Scrub is a brilliant product for anyone wanting the best prep for a smooth tan application. I love how the coffee is upcycled from cafes – sustainable! – and the coffee grounds buff away dead skin cells so there are no unsightly tan streaks!

I like to pair it with Ecotan which is my favourite New Zealand-made natural fake tan.

Product Advice Angel: Helen

A simple cool down for the face but also a great way to reduce tired eyes and puffiness, the Soothing Eye Gel is a must for any Evolu lover. Small enough to slip in your bag or a sophisticated Santa sack, a little bit goes a long way, making this a secret weapon for hot summer days.

And because we love the outdoors while keeping those eyes protected and looking the part, we’re pairing it up with some beautiful naturally handcrafted wooden sunglasses from Vilo.
