Evolve Organic Beauty Christmas Gift Guide

Evolve Organic Beauty is a brand I was so excited to get to know and one I have loved every minute of doing so. Having seen it explode across my social media, Evolve Organic Beauty products are lovingly handmade in small batches at their studio in Hertfordshire, England to ensure the freshness of the precious antioxidants in the natural oils, butter and extracts. The products are vegan, cruelty-free and eco-friendly.
This Christmas, Evolve Beauty have a whole host of incredible Christmas Gifts on offer for gifts suitable for each skin type and every budget. I was kindly given some of them by way of an introduction and they are just wonderful.  These are just a few of them!

Imagine these three stars hanging from your Christmas Tree with their wonderfully decorated packaging which features the Christmassy scenes of either Gingerbread men, Snowflakes or Reindeers. Inside the star, you will find a tin of Lip Shine (£14 each).   
This, of course, isn't just any lip shine, it is one that is rich in Cacao butter, rose flower oil, vanilla and gold sparkles. As soon as the lid is removed, there is a wonderful scent that draws you in coming from organic Blood Orange essential oil you and the Lip Shines are all completely vegan and they use a 100% natural alternative to petroleum jelly and is blended with Amazonian Cupuacu Butter and organic Cacao Butter which together work to nourish and replenish dry lips.  

What I really love about these lip shines, is not that they feel amazing on the lips, which of course they do either on their own or over your favourite lipstick, but you can also use them as a shimmery highlighter on your cheeks and collarbones too!

Next, from Evolve Beauty I have two crackers and again, they are both such a wonderful way to be introduced to the brand and what products there is on offer, not to mention how wonderful the packaging is too.

The first cracker is called 'Let it Glow' and it is a Limited Edition cracker (£20) which is described as being the perfect stocking filler. Inside this cracker are two amazing products that you just cannot help but love. The first is a Lip shine which I have featured above and it is the perfect accompaniment to the second product within this cracker which is the Radiant Glow Mask. This rich face mask is just incredible, I absolutely love it. Blended with raw cacao, clay and coconut granules these ingredients come together to cleanse, purify and buff the skin.  It is also enriched with antioxidants, magnesium, Vitamins and the fatty acid Omega 6, so this mask not only works to improve hydration and the complexion it does all of this whilst promoting cell repair and skin cell rejuvenation. Finally, there is the addition of sweet almond oil which is a high moisturising, emollient and nourishing properties.  


This mask smells good enough to eat thanks to the raw cacoa and it just feels amazing on the skin. Natural sugar extracts turn the exfoliating mask into a creamy milk on contact with water so that it rinses off easily and once you have removed every trace of the mask it leaves behind skin which smooth the touch, feeling moisturised and for me, skin which feels calm and less stressed.

The second cracker is the Calm and Bright Limited Edition Cracker (£25) and inside there are three products which come together to hydrate, soothe and calm.  
The first product is a Daily Defence Moisture Mist (30ml) and this is described as being a potent protective serum facial mist which uses an organic Mexican cactus elixir to calm irritated skin whilst helping to increase hydration.  This mist smells just absolutely amazing and also include African Moringa peptides which protect the skin from pollutants and purify the skin while hyaluronic acid, which is known for its ability to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and leaves the skin looking much improved.

The second product within the cracker is the Hyaluronic Serum 200.  Perfect for normal to dry skin, there is 200mg of hyaluronic acid per bottle and it works alongside some Organic pomegranate extract which works to soften and protect the skin, Aloe Vera Juice which is soothing for dry, sensitive skin. Will help to calm redness and heal the skin and then we have the delicate fragrance of organic rosewater which gives this serum one of the nicest smells.  What I really like about this serum is just how it makes my skin feel, having double cleansed, I apply this serum before any moisturiser and my skin feels like ive just had a facial, so smooth to the touch.

The final product within this cracker is the Daily Renew Facial Cream (30ml). Perfect for normal to dry skin, this cream feels incredibly luxurious. Using a blend of pure organic oils such as Argan Oil which is is high in vitamin E and fatty acids, giving the skin a youthful glow. It is easily absorbed. Vitamin E and fatty acids are also known for their ability to repair damaged skin and prevent further damage. Apricot Kernal Oil and Sesame Oil which both have moisturising, nourishing and revitalising properties. 
You will also find Hyaluronic Acid as an ingredient and again, this cream is delicately fragranced using both soothing hypoallergenic vanilla & coconut natural fragrance.

These gifts have been such a wonderful introduction to Evolve Beauty and I am excited to see where the brand goes next.  Already there is a catalogue packed full of products across the serums, creams, toners, treatments, oils and eye care categories or you can search for your ideal product based upon your main concern such as dryness, dehydration, blemish or dullness to name just a few.

Your Truly Organics

Yours Truly Organics is a range of luxury face care products for oily and acne/blemish prone skin. Formulated with organic and natural ingredients which are proven to reduce inflammation, repair the skin's surface and control sebum production. Created by Kelita Bignall, whom I was lucky enough to meet a few months ago at a We Are Thirty Plus event, she told her own personal story of suffering with acne and oily skin but unable to find any effective natural and organic solutions, she created her own.
Your Truly Organics

With four products in the range, I have spent a few months using them to before they have appeared on my blog, though it is good timing given it is Organic Beauty Week!

Take It Away! Gel Cleanser - This is a really gentle cleanser which is formulated to maintain the skin's natural elasticity and it manages to clean and cleanse the skin without stripping it of natural oils. Using Orange Oil to increase collagen production and to detox the skin, it gives an incredible citrus scent when used and it is just divine. The second ingredient is Sandalwood Oil which works to rehydrate the skin a well as toning and firming.
Your Truly Organics
Balancing Toner - This toner is designed to return your skin to its optimal pH level and improve its ability to absorb moisture. To do that it two uses essential ingredients, the first being Avenacare Oat Beta Glucan soothes the skins surface, reduces the appearance of fine line and wrinkles whilst at the same time reducing redness. Pentavitin ensures instant deep hydration and generates a moisture reservoir which lasts for 72 hours. What I love about this toner is the scent and how refreshing it feels on my skin when using. The pump spray is great for ensuring you use enough each time you use it.
Your Truly Organics
Fix me! Repairing Serum - If you have oily/blemish prone skin you will be told how important it is that you need a product that will regulate the production of sebum in the skin and repair damaged areas of the skin, this serum is designed to do all of that using three active ingredients. Gatuline Skin-Repair Bio which aids cell regeneration and targets damaged areas. Avena Sativa reduces inflammation and REGU-SEB helps to control and reduce sebum production, especially in the t-zone area. This is such a light textured serum which doesn't feel too heavy on the skin and is just a delight to use.

Your Truly Organics

Face Base Face Balm - This face balm is incredibly moisturising and acts as a great base for makeup application too. Using Daisy Flower Extract which has skin brightening properties, Pea Extract which contains vital amino acids and proteins necessary for the production of collagen and elastin. What I love about this is the texture, it is fairly thick and luxurious but without being too thick to leave your skin feeling clogged and blocked. It makes an amazing makeup primer having left your skin so smooth to the touch.
Your Truly Organics

Your Truly Organics is such an amazing brand and one that you need to look for and give a try, especially if you have oily or blemish prone skin. Made in the UK and tested only on willing humans Yours Truly Organics believe that beautiful skin is deserved by all and their organic skin care UK products are approved by Ecocert and suitable for vegetarians for additional measure.

You Beauty - April Box

This months You Beauty Discovery Box is titled 'Natural and Organic' and the choice to choose from features an amazing range of products for your skin, hair and their is also make up to choose from. Admittedly, I choose products because I like the brand, I like the sound of them or I have read and heard good things, I don't go out of my way to choose organic, so for me this is a nice treat and in some ways introduction to brands I am not well acquainted with or too.

As always there are some treats inside this months box and they start with a Hask Keratin Protein Smoothing Deep Conditioner sachet. Described as being an ultra-restorative, moisturising hair treatment which leaves all hair types smooth, shiny and frizz free. Hask products are free of sulphates, phthalates, gluten, drying alcohol and artifical colours. The second treat comes from Neom in the form of two different capsules. The first being a Daily Energy Boosting Burst Capsule and the second being a Daily De-Stress Burst capsule. Both 100% natural, it is said that you break the capsule into the palms of your hands to massage in and then, cup your hands over your mouth and nose and breathe in and out for 7 seconds.

You Beauty - April Box

When I got the email detailing the selections for this box, I had pretty much decided which two options I as going to chose, purely because they are two brands I know the least about.

The first is from Sond and it is a Hydrating Face Spray. I have been sent a mini gift set from Sond by way of introduction which I haven't yet tried and this was not a feature. I am a hge fan of Face Sprays and they are a product I use all the time, especially because a lot of my time is spent in frony of a computer screen. This spray promises to provide instant and long-lasting hydration as well as working to soothe and refresh the skin. Containing silica, it boosts collagen production and water retention, while acting as an anti-inflammatory for irritated or sensitive skin.  This product is a 10ml sample and has a value of around £2.50.

You Beauty - April Box

My second choice was the AD Skin Synergy Organic Rose Geranium Nourishing Night Treatment Facial Oil, which is a bit of a mouthful to say! I love a good facial oil and this one is said to be limited edition and is 100% natural with an abundance of potent organic ingredients and scented with the highest-grade Organic Rose Geranium essential oil which has been very tenderly steam distilled and can be found alongside the likes of organic rosehip seed, organic evening primrose, organic jojoba, organic lavender, organic roman chamomile, organic palma rosa, organic ylang ylang, organic neroli, frankincense, jasmine and vitamin E.  On the skin, it is light and non-greasy and is incredibly hydrating, not to mention smells just amazing.  This costs £38 and is a 50ml bottle.

You Beauty - April Box

So those are my selections for April and yet again, You Beauty offers great value for money at £6.95 per box including p&p and the contents of this box have a value of around £45.
