Evy Tech, the new SPF on the block(ish)
I was sent this a quite a little while ago with, of course, no obligation to post after EVY launched in the UK. I do like to thoroughly test out a product before giving my thoughts on it and put it this way, I’m nearing the end of this can and I will happily be purchasing future supplies. Read on to find out what’s so good about this SPF and why I think it’s a great addition to a skincare routine.

What is it?
“A REVOLUTIONARY SWEDISH INVENTIONEVY SUNSCREEN MOUSSE IS BASED ON PATENTED MEDICAL SKIN CARE TECHNOLOGY AND HAS BEEN MANUFACTURED IN SWEDEN SINCE 1999.” –Evy Technology
A mousse with SPF30 5* UVA rating, which when applied sinks into the top layer of the skin providing an effective barrier. It is broad spectrum with both UVA and UVB protection. A water-resistant, sweat proof formula which can last up to 6 hours (according to Evy Tech).
It can be applied to the eye and lip area as well as the entire face, neck and body.
This particular SPF from the EVY Technology collection is marketed as an ‘anti-ageing’ formula. While I’m not a fan of this term in general, they have reason for doing so. It contains ingredients which help promote regeneration, target pigmentation and protect against further skin damage. A 5* UVA rating gives excellent protection for UVA damage, UVA rays being the ones responsible for the damage which causes photo ageing (amongst other harm of course).
What Evy say
“The advanced technology strengthens the skin’s natural protective barrier and protects against external irritants and desiccants. EVY also works as a carrier for active ingredients that spread throughout the entire top layer of the skin instead of remaining on the surface. This makes the active substances such as antioxidants and sun filters particularly effective.”– Evy Technology
What’s different about it?
A stand out feature is definitely the mousse texture and formula. The application is seamless and indeed a pleasure. The product is long lasting and durable. It is non-sticky and not shiny (a big win for those of us with oilier skin types). The aerosol can makes for an easy and clean application (no sticky bottles here) and a germ-free, airtight (therefore hygienic) product.
The mousse is in a concentrated form which expands upon application. EVY state that their 150ml can amount to approximately twice as much as a standard equivalent lotion or cream.
How do you apply?

Who might love this
With its long wear and water-resistant/sweatproof formula, this will be popular with those who are active, who train and spend a lot of time in the outdoors.
People who like light, non-greasy textures may also be a fan.
Those who prefer chemical/organic SPF products.
Anyone who has melasma. The added vitamin C and a good level of sun protection, used daily are essential in keeping this at bay.
Who might not like it
My skin type is oily and acne prone. It is also skin which at times can flare with eczema, neither flared with this product. I’m also a melasma fighter so love that this is a double whammy product, with both vitamin C and a good level of sun protection to help keep that at bay.
