Check out this glowing review of the brand new and revolutionary Beyond Organic Lite & Brite skin lightener, by Age Before Beauty blog!
Hand made beauty products are always a joy to behold. Made from natural, organic ingredients means they are safe, ethical and exceptionally good for your skin because unnecessary ingredients have not been added.
The multi award winning Beyond Organic range is no exception and new for this season are three products:
- Organic SPF 30 Daily Protection
- Organic Lite and Brite
- Organic Tinted SPF 30 Protection
As a true English rose myself (pale and freckly!) I am always on the look out for decent sun protection products but I cannot stand the chemical smell of most of the mass market sun blocks. Beyond organic’s sun protection is excellent and as we did have a glimmer of sunshine yesterday I gave it a try!
I find that a lot of organic products, lovely as they are, can be quite thick and oily and the Beyond Organic range is a bit thick, but extremely effective once massaged into the skin. The sun protection worked brilliantly and smells gorgeous. It also left my skin feeling fresh, smooth and smelling lovely as well as protected from the harmful rays of the sun (even though it made just a brief appearance!)
The Lite and Brite product is claiming to be the first 100 per cent organic skin lightener to reach the market and I think this is going to be a best seller. The consistency is just right and it smells divine. As someone who longs for a bit of colour in their cheeks this isn’t something I will use myself, but it has the look and feel of a product that is far more expensive and tests over 28 days showed measurable results.
The tinted sun protection has a delicious fragrance and although the colour looks quite dark to start with, when it is blended and massaged into the skin the coverage is really good. Slightly too oily for my skin but still a great product and well worth a try. It doesn’t block pores or leave any residue unlike some other tinted moisturisers I have tried.
Packaging-simple, stylish and functional
Gloop factor-quite thick but doesn’t block the pores and rubs in really well giving good coverage and excellent absorption
Results-sun protection is superb
These award wining all natural products are worth every penny.
Thank you to Age Before Beauty for this fantastic review!

We’re no strangers to breaking new ground at Eve Organics – we were the first 100% natural online skin care boutique in Australia, and we remain one of the only truly natural skin care stores in the world.
We’ve introduced a number of new brands to Australian shores, including Gourmet Body Treats and the 100% Pure facial range; with more in the pipeline.
Now, we’re excited to introduce the world’s first 100% natural and organic skin lightener.
Beyond Organic’s Lite & Brite is a skin care revolution. Extremely popular across Asia, skin lighteners are often laden with dangerous chemicals – and until now, a natural alternative hasn’t existed. Lite & Brite works by naturally decreasing the production of Tyrosinase in the skin, which is the enzyme responsible for pigmentation.
Lite & Brite‘s lightening properties have been demonstrated by biological tests (in vitro, in vivo and ex vivo). After daily use for 28 days it shows measurable results, with further results at 56 days. Beautifully scented and hydrating enough to function as a moisturiser, the cream gradually and gently fades skin tone, hyper-pigmentation, freckles, melasma and age spots.
Lite & Brite has won a host of natural skin care awards, including earning a ‘Highly Commended’ in the prestigious 2012 Natural Beauty Awards.

Luckily for us, we come into contact with a huge range of beautiful, gourmet skin care products every day working at Eve Organics – but every now and then, a product comes along that sticks with you. This miracle-in-a-glass-jar is one of them.
In their Face Cleansing Powder & Mask, Mokosh have created a product that truly transforms the complexion. Granular in texture, the powder adopts a deliciously ‘mushy’ consistency when mixed with water, and can be immediately washed off or left on as a mask once or twice a week. The powder contains Argiletz green clay to withdraw impurities – so it offers a deeper clean than most cleansers.
Like all of the Mokosh products, the Face Cleansing Powder & Mask is beautifully simple. With ingredients like organic oatmeal; neem, coconut and wheatgrass powders; and rose petals, the powder refines, renews and is excellent at balancing oily, combination or over-active skin types. It has an ‘earthy’ aroma and feels soft but oh-so-slightly exfoliating on contact. Skin is left feeling clearer, softer and brighter.
Customers have told us that the Face Cleansing Powder & Mask helps to improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of enlarged pores and combat dullness.
To make the most of your Mokosh Face Cleansing Powder & Mask, keep it outside of the shower and pour just enough product into your dry hand before mixing it with water outside the jar. Allowing moisture into the jar can cause the product to spoil, so store it in a dry place – remember, it’s 100% natural and preservative-free.

Every now & then we stumble across a review of one of the products in our range, and we simply have to share it!
The Tomato Lycopene Facial Cream by 100% Pure is a new addition to the range, and a miracle product for damaged and distressed complexions. Karley from Pure Beauty with Karley shares her thoughts on this wonder-in-a-bottle! :
Tomato Lycopene Facial Cream: A Closer Look
In addition to making a great BLT or homemade sauce, tomatoes are great for your skin. I think tomatoes are one of the most underrated skin foods out there. A recent study in Great Britain showed that regular consumption of lycopene-rich tomatoes can help protect skin from UVA damage as well as prevent premature aging. Tomatoes also benefit the skin when topically applied. The main compound of this fruit is a carotene called LYCOPENE, which is a true antioxidant powerhouse.
At a conference at the Center for Food and Nutrition Policy at the Virginia Technical Institute, one subject discussed was a finding that lycopene in tomatoes may actually reduce sun damage by up to 35%!
In addition to these wonderful antioxidant properties, lycopene can also soften and smooth the skin to give it an ideal texture. The tonic effects of the lycopene are also wonderful for balancing sebum in the skin.
One product from 100% Pure that I truly adore and would place into my top 3 favorites (which is oh so hard to do!) is the Tomato Lycopene Facial Cream. This is the facial moisturizer I have been using each morning.
I used to suffer from skin that was quite dry. Once I switched over to a regular regimen of 100% Pure products, it became normalized. No more dull, dry patches. Just NORMAL skin. In the heat and humidity, I’ve had a bit of combination skin with t-zone oil like I did 15-20 years ago. I needed to find a lighter facial moisturizer that I could use alone or with natural, mineral sunscreen. As you may know, using a natural sunscreen can wreak havoc on the pores so you need a light face cream instead of a heavy one.
I also know of many people with truly oily and acne prone skin who use this as well.
This is my favorite facial cream to use. First of all, it is not a traditional, potted cream. It is in a pump bottle and is a lighter fluid. It is super gentle and doesn’t feel heavy on the skin.
Just look at the ingredients:
Ingredients: Cucumber Juice, Tomato Extract, Organic Rose Hydrosol, Carrot Seed Oil, Tomato Lycopene, Organic Avocado Butter, Aloe Juice, Organic Pomegranate Seed Extract, Vitamin E (a-tocopherol), Vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate), Extract of Organic Goldenseal, Organic Rosemary, Organic Oregano, Organic Thyme and Organic Lavender, Japanese Honeysuckle Extract, Citric Acid, Witch Hazel, Candelilla Wax and Calendula Extract
Why this works–a look at some of the key ingredients:
*Cucumber juice is the number one ingredient. This soothing ingredient is also a skin tonic, and when combined with the tonic benefits of tomatoes, it helps clear the pores and get that “gunk” out of your skin.
*Rose hydrosol stimulates the skin and can also restore the pH balance of your skin.
*Carrot seed oil is present in this cream as well and I’d like to talk about why this is such a good thing. Carrot seed oil contains high amounts of both Vitamin A and Carotene. Both are very potent antioxidants. When used on this skin, carrot seed can help to repair damage already done by free radicals. While many essential oils are not corrective, this is one that has shown to be both corrective and preventive.
Carrot Seed’s effect on the skin can be visible after just a few days of use, starting with a more radiant appearance. Often when our skin looks dull or sallow, carrot seed can help give it that “boost” we need.
People have found that skin infections have been treated well with carrot seed. Conditions such as psoriasis, contact dermatitis and eczema also can find some relief with this oil.
Those with mature skin can also reap the rewards of using this essential oil. It will make the skin softer, and can rejuvenate and tone the skin’s texture which results in a more youthful appearance.
needs to be properly stabilized to provide maximum benefit. Have you ever had a vitamin C product that, once opened, quickly turns into a rusty brown shade? I think we all have. That means that the vitamin C has oxidized. The Vitamin C in 100% Pure products is top-notch. Your skin will reap the anti-aging and antioxidant benefits, and this vitamin can brighten your skin too.

Who doesn’t love a product that can do more than one thing brilliantly?
Here are our favourite Eve Organics multi-taskers!
100% Pure Cucumber Eye Cream Gel = Soothing After-Wax Cream
This beautifully simple, soothing little gem is not only a cool drink for tired, puffy eyes; it’s also fantastic as a post-waxing treatment, to soothe skin, remove redness and prevent ingrown hairs. We’re serious – we’ve tried it!
Raw Gaia Clay Face Packs (Green/Rhassoul/Chocolate) = Facial Exfoliant
As well as withdrawing impurities, brightening uneven skin tone and refining texture, these powder masks exfoliate beautifully as you remove them; so they can save you money too (no need to buy an exfoliator to add to your regime!) – Simply pat on, leave for 10 minutes then rub gently in a circular motion in the shower, and whola – smooth, clearer, softer skin.
100% Pure Cucumber Juice/Lavender Honey Cleansing Facial Foam = Gentle Body Wash
The best thing about these simple cleansers is that a little goes a really long way! They foam as you dispense them, making application a breeze and meaning you use much less product. Because they’re so bubbly and easy to spread, they also double as gentle body washes, suited to even the most sensitive skins.
Do you use one of our products for a purpose it wasn’t made for? Tell us your secret! We’d love to hear about it.
