An Eva NYC Haul & First Impressions



I know I've been a bit MIA lately due to stress and some general laziness but I'm back with a cache of beauty and book reviews just waiting to be written. Thanks to a lovely little discount code from Ipsy I picked up a few products from Eva NYC the other day and thought I'd show you what I bought.

I was first encouraged to make this purchase by my new found love, the Up All Night Volumizing Spray, which I sampled in last month's Ipsy bag and couldn't get enough of. If you read my recent review and my February favorites post you'll know that it's an awesome texturizing spray that gives me soft, beachy waves without the gunky feel of a salt spray. It also doubles as a heat-protector. I just had to get myself a full-sized bottle. 

I've been in the market for a new hair mask since I ran out of my L'Oreal one so I thought I'd give the Therapy Session Hair Mask a go. This tub is ENORMOUS! It will probably last me quite a long time and I'm totally okay with that. In the couple of times I've used it so far I've noticed that my hair feels much softer and smoother after washing it out. Plus, it smells like warm vanilla. Yum.

The final product I ordered was a travel-sized bottle of their Freshen Up Dry Shampoo. We all know my love of miniatures but since dry shampoos can be so hit or miss I also wanted to test the small size before investing in a full can. I've only tried it once so far but in terms of formula I'd say it's very similar to Amika's Perk Up Dry Shampoo. It applies clear, smells lovely and does an okay job of soaking up excess oil. It doesn't get my hair as clean as the Fekkai Blowout Dry Shampoo but if you just need a little touch-up this is a great dry shampoo to help you freshen up a bit. 

Eva NYC was also kind enough to send me a couple of one-use sample packets which included the Hungry Hair Oil Treatment, their Clean It Up Shampoo and Soften Up Conditioner. I've yet to try any of the pouches but I'm especially excited to try the oil treatment. One thing I particularly love about Eva NYC is that they have travel size versions of all of their products available on their site. I think it's a great way to test out a product and see if it'll really work for your needs without too much of a financial investment. Hell, testing out one of their minis and falling in love was how I ended up placing this order to begin with. 


Have you tried any of Eva NYC's products? What were your thoughts?
