My EVER Story
I have been wanting to write this blog post forEVER (hehe, see what I did there), and I’m happy to finally be getting around to it! I have waited way too long in getting serious about my skincare regimen. Starting in early 2018, I became more interested in the ingredients in the products that I was putting on my skin.
In September 2018 my husband was chatting with a coworker who was telling him about this new skincare line his wife had started selling. Keep in mind this is two sales guys conversing about their wives’ makeup and skincare routines. Steve mentioned it to me and I sort of brushed it off. I didn’t dig too deep on what the product was etc. It got brought up AGAIN in October 2018 by these two driven salesman while they were talking on the phone. This time when Steve mentioned it to me I listened. I decided to have a call with Meghan, introduce myself and see what all the fuss was about.
Our call lasted over an hour. She brought me up to speed on all of the amazing benefits these products have (I’m getting to that below) AND the ground floor opportunity that there is with EVER. The brand was started by Jessica Herrin CEO and Founder of Stella and Dot. The idea of social selling was sort of born with Stella and Dot and the great framework was already there. Combine that with some powerhouse names within the beauty industry and you have a group of trailblazers that have brought the EVER skincare revolution to light! After my call with Meghan I did some fact checking on the ingredients and decided to take the leap. I was at a point where I still didn’t have a solid regimen and was testing different products out here and there but I wanted something more routine. I signed up with Meghan that weekend and I haven’t looked back!
The EVER line is broken into two areas, skincare and makeup. This post will focus on skincare. As the saying goes, if you had JTT posters hanging on your walls in the 90s then it’s probably time to invest in some great skincare. 🙂 EVER products contain a combination of natural, botanical and synthetic ingredients that actually deliver powerful results – this is key. I started using this line in early November and my skin is looking the best it has in years.

It has definitely taken some work getting to this point, but I actually look forward to mornings and evenings now because of this skincare line! I feel educated and confident in what I’m putting on my skin (remember, all of these products get absorbed into our bodies too)! With the Pure Results Regimen, you get all four pieces needed to start seeing anti aging results within 30 days!
How to use
The process is super simple to follow and that was one of the main selling points for me signing up. Each item is clearly marked as what step it is in the process so it’s impossible to mess up.
Step 1: CLEANSE
The first step is to cleanse. EVER has two different types of cleansers. One is a cleansing balm and the other is a foaming cleanser. I use both, but I mostly use the balm. It has a thick consistency but it is very hydrating. Apply a dime sized amount to your dry face in a circular motion … don’t forget your neck and chest too. Then, using a warm wash cloth simply wipe it off of your face. I typically use the cleansing balm in the morning, and the foaming cleanser at night in the shower. The foaming cleanser contains salicylic acid so if you have more oily skin, this would be a good choice for you. When using the foaming cleanser you will apply it to a damp face in a circular motion and then wipe clean with a warm wash cloth.
Step 2: EXFOLIATE
In step 2 you will use the peel pads to help resurface your skin and promote a more radiant appearance. These will remove dead skin cells to help clear and reduce the appearance of pores. The peel pads contain azelaic acid which is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of spots! I sometimes cut the pads in half to make them last longer too. You simply rub these all over your face in a circular motion, not forgetting about your neck and chest too.
Step 3: TREAT
The Youthful Serum is a powerful age defying formula that will help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The serum contains Honokiol (anti inflammatory) which is a component of magnolia bark that is 1000x more powerful than vitamin E. I use 1-2 pumps in the AM and PM and then gently press onto my face and around the eye area.
Step 4: MOISTURIZE
The regimen comes with two different moisturizers. The Hydralift is what you will use in the evenings, however if you are extra dry then using in the morning is fine too. There is an oil free version of this as well. This is going to help improve the overall firmness and elasticity of your skin. The best part? It contains hyaluronic acid so it’s helping to reduce fine lines while you sleep!
The Broad Spectrum Priming Moisturizer contains SPF30 so it’s important to apply this EVERY morning. It also serves as a great primer for your make up.
Revive Eye Cream + Overnight Facial Oil + Sublime
If you are truly looking to treat fine lines and wrinkles, then these products are something to consider adding on to the regimen. The Revive Eye Cream is going to help with tired looking eyes (talking to you moms)! It will reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark circles. This is best used in the morning.
EVER’s Sublime Eye Cream contains retinol and is perfect for smoothing lines and reducing puffiness. The Overnight Facial Oil also contains retinol and peptides that help diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles while tightening and lifting skin’s appearance.
