If you’re a fan of Stella & Dot, you may have noticed their recent release of a brand new skincare line called Ever. The main focus with this line is to provide ingredient-conscious skincare in the form of complete skincare regimens, plus a selection of luxurious body care and daily treatments. Ever’s ‘consciously formulated’ products ranges from cleansers and masks, to serums and sunscreen, all of which are said to contain safe and naturally effective ingredients.
As I grow more and more conscience of what’s going into my beauty products, and later, onto my skin and body, I find myself gravitating toward brands that safety and ingredients first, which made me curious to try out Ever. Today I’ll be reviewing two products from their line – the SMOOTH Anti-Aging Lip Treatment* and GLOW Body Renewal Oil*.
“All of our products are consciously formulated for the health and beauty of the skin, and only contain ingredients that are effective and meet our strict safety requirements. We consciously avoid any ingredients that are banned in other countries, and we never, ever test on animals. All of these efforts create a philosophy we call Conscious Beauty.” – Ever
Ever Skincare SMOOTH Anti-Aging Lip Treatment
The Ever Skincare Smooth Lip Treatment is quite a treat for the lips. It’s packed with natural oils, butters, and botanical extracts which give the balm a buttery smooth texture. It literally melts onto the lips and smooths within seconds. This stuff continues working too – you don’t need to keep re-applying it. I’ll typically apply this as a nighttime treatment, and after 8+ hours of beauty sleep, my lips are still left feeling super smooth and hydrated.
To top it off, the balm is naturally scented with cocoa seed butter and vanilla bean, which give it a very warm, comforting scent. (It smells so good that I wish it came in a full-size body cream version!)
From its naturally-packed ingredient profile to its long-lasting hydration, I would absolutely recommend this to anyone struggling with super dry lips.
How to Use: Use the Ever Smooth Anti-Aging Lip Treatment on the lips to instantly soothe, smooth, and soften. Or, apply it to your dry areas, like cuticles, elbows, knees, and even around the eye area for soothing relief.
- Tocotrienol, the most potent form of vitamin E, helps soothe cracked, chapped skin

Ever Skincare GLOW Body Renewal Oil
Another Summer-ready skincare pick from the Ever Skincare collection is the GLOW Body Renewal Oil. Formulated with Macadamia, Sea Buckthorn and Chia oils, GLOW moisturizes the skin and provides instant relief from dryness. Bakuchiol, Vitamin C Ester, and Omega 3x further renew skin by increasing natural cell turnover, leading to smoother skin with fewer wrinkles and fine lines overtime.
Despite being oil-based, GLOW actually spreads quite easily and even absorbs quickly into the skin. It has a light floral, citrus-y scent that I found a tad strong at first. It does however dry down after a few minutes, to the point where only you and those who come very close to you can smell it. (I personally wish they made this fragrance-free – the ‘fragrance’ ingredient is rather high in the ingredients list and can occasionally irritate my sensitive skin.)
Packed in with the oils are very fine flecks of golden-bronze shimmer, which subtly illuminate the skin (in my opinion, it’s subtle enough to even wear to work).
Overall, with the shimmer and hydrating oils combined, you’ve got the power to really enhance a summer glow with this stuff! Just be aware that if you have sensitive skin, you may want to avoid it since it is heavy in the fragrance department.
How to Use: The Glow Body Renewal Oil can be used immediately after showering or bathing, or any time your skin needs moisturizing.
