Finding a enjoyable and suitable face moisturiser can be quite a difficult task. It not only needs to have a nice texture, smell and... price, it also has to repond to the needs of your skin. This multi peptide single cream (previously named multi action single cream) from Evolve Beauty is indeed very close to fulfilling those difficult tasks. Enriched with natural plant oils, peptides, and hyaluronic acid, this excellent light cream brings the right nutrients to the skin.
If you have a combination/oily to normal skin type, this delicate cream will do wonders. Not only is it really nice to apply on the skin, it also leaves the skin smooth and hydrated. It gets absorbed quickly enough to get a glowing-looking face, which is unified and soft. I have been using this emulsion every morning for the last 3 months and I am really (and still) in love with it. Light enough to be used in summer/sunny weather, and protective enough when outside temperature dropped. Really love the softness feel on the skin.
I really like the well designed and neat pinkish flacon. I find it simple, great looking and it is really easy to use.
Also a thumb up for the 100% recycled plastic!
The only comment I have is about the smell. It is quite neutral, as I cannot pick up what the main fragrance is all about. Perhaps a slighlty more refreshing natural fragrance would have been more appealing to me. However, if you are sensitive to certain fragances or prefer neutral scents, this is a perfect choice.
This face cream may be a little expensive. It is around £20. I still think it is reasonable value for money, because it lasts long. Only one dose pump exactly measures the amount you need for one application.
To sum up, this light cream is lovely: excellent texture, great ingredients and is very effective.

Aqua: base ingredient of the emulsion.
Aloe vera leaf juice: rich in vitamins, minerals and polysaccharides. Highly hydrating supernatural ingredient and a fantastic healer too. The skin becomes softer and calmed as any irritated patches are cleared away.
Sunflower oil: beauty oil by excellence, rich in vitamin E and oleic acids, ideal to regenerate and soothe the skin. Easily absorbed too.
Natural fragance: not really sure about the smell, probably accepted by Ecocert certification guidelines.
Coco-caprylate/caprate: esterified oil that serves as an emollient and helps to improve the texture of the product. Not entirely natural, but "not toxic".
The composition is then enriched by a nice organic blend of natural oils (apricot, sesame, argan) and shea butter that boost the natural repairing process of the skin.
Glycerin: acts as an effective moisturiser for the skin. Cannot really tell whether its origin is vegetal or animal.
Sweet almond proteins, dipalmitoyl hydroxiproline (a liposoluble aminoacid) and sodium hyaluronate reinforce the moisturising, anti-ageing, and firming properties of the cream.
