Voted the best “Natural and Organic skincare brand in the UK for 2017” Evolve Organic Beauty is a skincare brand making huge waves. If you have not heard of them, then read on because this brand does not play.
With everything hand crafted by artisans in their Herfordshire studios, all Evolve products are cruelty free, Vegan and made in small batches to ensure freshness and efficacy. Using natural and organic, oils, butters and superfoods from around the world, it is a perfect range for those that want to be more “Green” with their skincare regime.
Below I am sharing the Evolve Organic Beauty 4 Piece Daily Skincare Collection which works perfectly well for this time of year and makes a great introduction to the range.
Gentle Cleansing Melt 60ml –
This award winning cleansing melt, has a consistency like no other I have tried in a cleanser. It feels like a cross between a loose balm and an ointment. The scent is divine, it smells incredibly tasty if i’m honest, almost citrus like with a hit of vanilla, but not too sweet. An easy cleanser to use, apply over the face, including eyes, neck and décolleté and gently massage into the skin, whilst breathing in those uplifting aromas.
The melt immediately starts to work, lifting out impurities, dirt and make up, whilst also hydrating and nourishing the skin. Apply some water, massage in and allow the natural sugars to turn it into a beautiful milky emulsion. A dream to use, thanks to the inclusion of Baobab, it nourishes, hydrates and promotes healthy skin cells whilst protecting against free radicals, plus it leaves your skin looking and feeling, plump, juicy and clean. An absolute delight for skin of all ages and concerns.
Hyaluronic Serum 200 30ml –
Many people judge a skincare brand by its moisturiser, for me it is all about the serum. This is where I feed and hydrate my skin at an optimum level and want the best ingredients to penetrate through. To say I am picky about serums is an understatement so I was very excited to try this. My skin is super dehydrated due to medication, add to this the cold winter weather an central heating and this is the time of year when I need my skincare to be performing better than ever. I was not disappointed, in fact I was over the moon happy. Hyaluronic acid is a gel like water holding molecule that can retain over 1000 times its weight in water within the cells.
This serum contains 200mg per bottle and just by using one pump, and I mean one pump, the serum spreads across your whole face, hydrating perfectly as it does so. Although it does have an ever so slightly tacky texture, it sinks beautiful and quickly into the skin whilst immediately plumping the skin and leaving it feeling hydrated all day long. If you only try one product, make it this and slot it into your existing routine. You will not be disappointed.
Daily Renew Facial Cream 30ml –
Pass me a Pina-Colada I am done! The scent of this cream is absolutely delicious! I am whisked away to a tropical Coconut and Vanilla paradise and believe me, I wouldn’t want to be any where else right now. Not going to lie, if the scent of coconut is not your thing then you may want to give this a miss, but you will be doing your senses a disservice. Without a shadow of a doubt this is one of the most beautiful, rich, luxuriously decedent feeling creams I have a applied to my skin in a while. Yes, I am usually all about the lightweight textures, and whilst this is not at all thick or heavy, it does have that comforting, cocooning feel of a more “heavier” consistency. Containing a blend of organic Argan oil, Hyaluronic acid and naturally fragranced with hypoallergenic Coconut and Vanilla, this is a hydrating moisturiser. However, on a side note, I personally found that on my incredibly dry, dehydrated skin, when I applied this straight after the serum, my skin did feel quite matte and mask like. Whilst this would make a great base for make up, and sits fantastically under primer without roll off, for a morning moisturiser, without make up, this didn’t work. For me this is an evening moisturiser with which I can apply my oil over the top and really indulge in a hydrating treatment. I would love to hear your thoughts on this though and how it would work on a more normal/oily skin.
Miracle Facial Oil 10ml –
This is a lovely, super light oil that contains natural Retinol from Organic Rosehip as well as Antioxidants from Organic Argan Oil. A beautiful blend that easily sinks into the skin without leaving it too greasy, whilst hydrating and getting to work on any fine lines on the skin. I find that this is great for a more mature skin, skin showing the signs of age and loss of definition as it works well at plumping out those lines and almost tightening up and firming the skin. I prefer to use this oil of an evening however it works well in two ways. If you wish to use this during the day, I find applying it before the moisturiser works really well, massage it in and let it sit for a few moments. If applying of an everting, so as to avoid any roll off, you can tap it over your moisturiser to really seal it in. It also works well on dry ends of the hair, cuticles and lips too, as well as a slick over wayward brows.
My thoughts on this collection – This particular four piece daily collection, is a wonderful introduction to the brand. Suitable for all ages and skin types, though I would tend to lean more towards dry, dehydrated, maturing skin, it is perfect at hydrating and nourishing the skin through winter. My favourite product without a doubt is the Serum followed by the Cleansing Melt as I just love the immediate results my skin receives when using these. The moisturiser has the most incredible scent, which I am addicted to, but it doesn’t work as well as others on my particularly dehydrated skin, but does feel amazing on my hands and feet! Overall the value for the ingredients and amount in this collection is really amazing and I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this. Available as The Big Deal on QvcUK for £32.98 plus p&p.
