I don’t know about you but when I think rosemary, I think roast lamb. Rosemary is a herb commonly used in cooking for its fragrant flavour – but aside from its culinary appeal, it has a number of benefits for the skin – and has been used to heal various ailments for centuries. Rosemary has been used to treat digestive disorders and headaches, and is currently being investigated as a treatment for Alzheimers Disease. When used in skin care products, rosemary has the effect of increasing blood circulation and improving the functioning of skin cells, as well as toning the skin and acting as an astringent, so it’s excellent at balancing combination skin and as a firming ingredient in anti-aging skin care. Two components of rosemary thought to be responsible for these effects are caffeic acid and rosemarinic acid, both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agents.
Rosemary can be found in our:

Christmas is approaching fast, (yes! We love christmas!) so we thought we’d prepare a little helpful list – not for Santa, but for you!
This is a list of our picks for the festive season – what to buy, for who, and why.
We’ve put a lot of thought into this list – so sit back, save time, and get your christmas shopping in early – we’ve done the work for you!
After all… who doesn’t want beautiful & glowing skin for christmas?
Best product for teenagers = Raw Gaia Raw Chocolate Face Pack
Why? = This luxurious face mask clarifies and brightens all skin types – but it’s particularly good for oily, combination or acne-prone skin. It contains sundried red clay to draw out impurities, organic raw chocolate powder – the world’s highest known source of antioxidants, apart from smelling divine – tumeric, which is a known acne-fighter and excellent at purifying oily skin types, and amla fruit powder to clear and brighten the complexion.
This wonder-product not only has an amazing effect on troubled skin, it also smells heavenly and is fun and quick to use – perfect for teens!
Best pore-refining product = Mokosh Cleansing Powder, Healing Anthropology Purifying Facial Exfoliant
Why? = These little jars of powdered love are saviours for enlarged pores or unrefined, dull skin. They have the effect of applying a primer – they make pores disappear before your eyes. (Honestly!). They do this by getting in there and gently cleaning out those pores, whilst toning, refining and balancing the complexion, with ingredients like green clay, wheatgrass powder and the skin-loving oatmeal (Mokosh), calendula flower, rose petals and jojoba meal (Healing Anthropology).
As if that wasn’t enough, both of these beautiful products also double as weekly masks – so they’re real time- and money- savers, and perfect for mums or those who are short on spare time in their daily routine.
Most luxurious anti-aging moisturiser = The Little Alchemist Anti-Aging Defence Complex
Why? = This product is just too gorgeous. The packaging is sophisticated and feminine, and the product inside smells wonderful, is packed with natural anti-aging ingredients (DMAE, alpha-lipoic acid, MSM, seabuckthorn oil, hyaluronic acid, gingko, ginseng and Co-Enzyme Q10 – phew!) and sinks in to the skin beautifully. It’s a pleasure to use, and looks perfect on the bathroom shelf! Mum or Nan will love you for it.
Best gift for the traveller in your life = Invoke Rose Toning Mist
Why? = This product is a MUST for jet-setters. Not only does it tone and refine the skin, as all toners are made to, but it has the added benefit of soothing ingredients like cucumber and chamomile, which calm, de-puff and revitalise. No more red, irritated skin or puffy eyes when you touch down! This toning mist also contains floral waters of rose and neroli to add moisture (so it keeps your skin hydrated too), and lavender to balance. We road-tested this on a recent longhaul flight and it was absolutely fantastic. No redness or puffiness what-so-ever – our bloodshot eyes were the only giveaway!
Best Product for Busy Mums = Balm Balm Fragrance Free Face Balm
Why? = This product is a multi-use miracle. Made with the simplest and gentlest of ingredients, it’s made as a moisturiser for very sensitive skins, but also doubles as a glossy lip balm, hair smoother (yes, it works – we’ve tried it!) and more importantly, a gentle and safe balm for baby’s skin. New mums can keep this little tube in their handbag and throw away their lip balm, hair serum and baby lotion! It’s a time-saver and a much safer and gentler alternative to commercial baby products, containing only shea butter, sunflower oil, beeswax, calendula and jojoba oil. Beautifully soothing and beautifully simple! = Just what frazzled mums need.
Has that given you some food for thought? We hope we’ve helped with our christmas picks list!
Remember that all our products at Eve Organics are 100% natural… and 100% delicious! If you’re looking for a healthy, natural and luxurious gift for the teenager, mum, daughter, nan, best friend or partner in your life, look no further – you’re guaranteed to find something they’ll love at Eve Organics.
Until next time! xx
As soon as you pump some of this eye cream onto your finger and start applying it, the first thing you’ll notice is the beautiful smell. It smells like… creamy coffee and flowers, all at once.
Be sure to apply it gently, by patting it on underneath the eye area (as with all eye creams).
We applied this one at night, and woke up to smooth, soft, supple-looking and feeling eyes. It honestly is that quick.
As soon as you’ve applied the product, you can feel it sinking seamlessly into your skin, and if you touch the area after you’ve applied it, you’ll notice how soft and smoothed it feels.
A beautiful product for smoothing out lines and brightening the eye area. Wonderful for people with crows’ feet around their eyes, dry skin, or dark circles.
This product is not only a pleasure to use, but it also conveniently contains 3 of the most potent and effective anti-aging ingredients available:
Argireline, a unique new peptide that both reduces the degree of existing facial wrinkles and has been demonstrated effective against their development;
Hyaluronic Acid, a compound that occurs naturally in every tissue of the body (as we age, skin loses hyaluronic acid and the ability to hold sufficient water. Feeding new hyaluronic acid to skin helps hydrate skin’s intercellular reservoir, smoothing down age lines); and
DMAE, which has been shown in studies to inhibit the formation of age spots and significantly improve skin tone.
AND, they’re all 100% natural! There are no synthetic ingredients in this product whatsoever.
What more do you need to know? An all-natural, delicious-smelling, smoothing, softening and potently anti-aging eye cream. Thumbs up from us.
