Review: Eve Organics products and a Giveaway!

 

I recently received a lovely little sample package from Eve Organics, comprising the following products:

All three samples were very much what I needed at this time because the weather is really dry and cold now.  And besides, I was never one to pass on trying organic products.

The first thing that came to my mind when I opened up the package was just how professional the samples looked.  You know how some samples are just carelessly packed into unidentifiable containers?  Well, the samples that I received from Eve Organics were nicely sealed and looked like they just came off the shelves.  I was impressed.

 Peppermint Lip Balm

I immediately unwrapped the seal of the Peppermint Lip Balm, and tried it on my lips.  I, for one, suffer from extremely dry and chapped lips, and whilst my lips could heal with time back in Malaysia, I find the use of lip balm indispensable here in the States.

The Eve Organics lip balm of course had a minty taste to it.  It had a cooling effect, which at first was rather strong for me, but I loved the silky smooth feeling on my lips afterward.  I noticed that the lip balm had a glossy effect too, which makes it good enough to double up as a lip gloss.  What I liked was that the lip balm did not clump up as some lip balms do, but it glided on smoothly on my lips.  And hours after application, when I cleansed my face, I was thrilled to note that my lips still felt VERY moisturized.  Perhaps it is due to the organic aloe vera juice contained in the lip balm :)

I slathered the lip balm again before I went to sleep, and awoke this morning with lips that were truly smooth!  I love it!

The Peppermint Lip Balm retails for USD4.95.

Fortifying Eye Repair Creme

Coincidentally, I had run out of my eye cream, so getting this sample was a blessing in disguise.  The Fortifying Eye Repair Creme sample was packed in a small tub, containing white cream.  I took a whiff of it when I opened the tub, and it did not contain a single hint of perfume.   Great for those who can’t stand strong smells.

I was afraid the cream might be a tad too heavy for the eye area, but when I applied a little of the cream with my pinky, I was surprised at how light it felt!  Also, there wasn’t a single tinge of stinging sensation!  I normally get a little stinging sensation when I try on a new eye cream, because of the sensitive area around the eyes, but I was pleased to note that this was excellent!  It doesn’t make any difference to the dark circles under the eyes though, but the moisturizing effect is truly wonderful.

The skin around my eyes felt really hydrated after using this cream; not greasy but moisturized.  The description of the Fortifying Eye Repair Creme states that it can be used as a makeup remover too, but I feel that would be too wasteful! LOL

The Fortifying Eye Repair Creme retails at USD29.95 for a tub of 2 fl oz, which I find is very reasonable, given that most eye creams in the market are sold in tubs or tubes of 0.5 fl oz each.  However, for that quantity of eye cream, I think it would be a good idea to package it in a tube or pump bottle, just for the sake of hygiene.

 Quantum Quencher Facial Moisturizer for Dry/Mature Skin (Renewal)

Well, the first thing that caught my eye when I studied the bottle of the Quantum Quencher Facial Moisturizer for Dry/Mature Skin (Renewal) was that it clearly states that this product has 89% organic content.  I thought that was odd, and when I inquired further from Eve Organics, I was informed that the reason the products are not 100% organic is because some of the ingredients contained therein cannot be categorized as organic (e.g.: water, Vitamin E, neem, salts, etc.)  Having signed the truth in labeling pledge, Eve Organics has vowed to be completely transparent in ingredient labeling. 

 

The Quantum Quencher Facial Moisturizer for Dry/Mature Skin (Renewal) comes in a pump bottle and has a creamy texture to it.  When I applied the moisturizer on my face, I could immediately smell a strong flowery scent…something like jasmine.  It was a good thing I am way past my first trimester’s adversity to strong smells, for this would have caught me completely offguard.

Good thing the smell didn’t linger too long and it dissipated as soon as the moisturizer absorbed into the skin, which was quite fast too!  I am very liberal in applying moisturizers in my neck area, and I was pleased with the softening, hydrating effect it gave.

After application, my skin felt smooth and plumped up, and even after a whole night’s sleep, my face still felt very moisturized!  It did not feel greasy at all, which is what I like.  And believe it or not, I could see that my pores are much tighter now!  Hurrah!

An excerpt from the Eve Organics site regarding the moisturizer reads:

Eve Organics moisturizers are jam packed with natural free radical busters, such as Vitamins A, C and E, red Rooibos tea from South Africa, white and green tea.  Red Rooibos tea contains an enzyme called Sodium Oxide Dismutase (or S.O.D.), which kills free radicals and renews the skin’s ability to fight off destruction.   Quantum Quencher Moisturizer – Renewal – used daily, along with the rest of the Renewal product line, supports a more youthful appearance.
 
This monumental moisturizing lotion has quantum qualities.  Aloe & South African Rooibos Tea soothe skin with anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidants.  Naturally derived MSM feeds the formation of collagen and helps eliminate brown spots and wrinkles.  Naturally derived DMAE protects cell walls from free radicals and is known to tighten pores and reduce visible signs of aging.  With daily use, a cumulative skin tightening effect will be noticeable.  Expertly blended therapeutic grade essential oils support cell turnover and youth.
 
Active Ingredients
Organic Jojoba
Organic Coconut and Avocado Oils
Naturally Derived DMAE and MSM 
Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils and Absolutes of Rose, Jasmine, Sandalwood, Frankincense and Carrot Seed

The moisturizer retails at USD20.50 for the full-sized 2 fl oz bottle and USD10.95 for the Try Me size of 1 fl oz.  I only gave it half a star less because I would have preferred it scent-free, but I guess that can’t be helped because of the presence of jasmine in the ingredients.

    i want to have a moisturizer that is moisturized without making the face more oily and also, i want to have my open pores closed.

  13. Becky Says:

    I like that it is known to tighten pores; that’s a lot nicer way to eliminate visibility of pores as opposed to shoe nose strip things, which hurt and don’t even tighten pores. Also the organic nature of Eve is the icing on the cake. :D Thank you so much for offering this giveaway! eyeslikesugar [at] gmail [dot] com

    Would love to try this after reading your review. Am really intrigued by the use of the many types of teas in the product as i am a tea lover. Also think it is great that it helps with cell turnover and tightens the skin. Could do with a toner/moisturizer in one product!!

  17. abby Says:

    If I was lucky enough to get this, I would want to try it for I have the driest skin of everyone I know. Even though I have tried so many different brands of moisturizer, I still have not found the right one for me.I think it is wonderful that it is organic, if only partly, and that it contains lots of wonderful ingredients. Have never tried an organic product before and this would be a good chance to try one. Plus, it is chemical free!

    Thanks for having the giveaway and for the great review!
