Since costume jewelry line Stella & Dot launched in 2003, it has grown into a massively popular mega-brand and changed the way we think about social selling programs (Tupperware parties: out; Stella & Dot parties: in). Now, with the launch of Ever, its much-anticipated anti-aging skincare line, the company is branching into the beauty world in a big way.
Here's what you need to know: the line of heavily-researched, clinical-grade products ($26-$88) are the real deal. They're packed with a proprietary molecular complex called LSR10 (derived, in part, from magnolia bark, an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant superstar) and fight a laundry list of skin woes (fine lines, redness, dehydration and dullness among them).
The four-step regimen couldn't be easier to follow. At morning and night, you wash with one of two cleansers (a balm ($45) for dry skin or a gel ($40) for oily); swipe one of the the brightening Biomimetic Resurfacing Pads ($70) across your face; pat on a pump of the Quattro Peptide Face & Eye Serum ($88), and finish with SPF-spiked moisturizer ($45) or night cream ($70). Sound like a lot? It's not. Each potion is user-friendly and non-irritating –and we love how the routine takes the guesswork out of how best to tackle our litany of skin concerns.
We've been using the regimen for two weeks, and can already see a difference in our dermis: our skin feels brighter, smoother and more even. And judging by the before-and-after shots on Ever's site, we're not the only ones benefiting from the line's paraben-, sulfate- and synthetic-fragrance free products.
Head over to to Ever's site to shop the whole line-up (including a handful of "enhancement" products like a killer body oil ($55) and lip treatment ($26)). Or, wait for one of your friends to become a Ever Specialist and host an event where you can pick up products at preferred pricing.
