I have spent the past few weeks discovering the wonders of Evolu. This now iconic home grown brand of Botanical skincare is the brain child of the lovely Kati Kasza, a stunning & vibrant woman whos personality shines & sparkles like her skin. I recently sat down with Kati while she introduced me to Evolu’s latest products & as I sniffed & sampled she told me all about the ingredients, most of which are plant extracts derived from New Zealand & the Pacific.

Evolu as a brand has a highly ethical approach to its ingredients & all their products are PH balanced & contain no parabens, petrochemicals, sulphates or artificial colours (in other words, no nasty stuff) Their fragrances are also completely natural too…. so Evolu cream is a feast to your olfactory senses.

One of the newest products in Evolu’s extensive range is the  Invigorating Body Scrub which is like nothing I have ever tried before, as it actually contains real coffee grains that work to exfoliate your body without stripping any of the essential moisture. I am not a coffee drinker, but I love the aroma & this scrub smells exactly like a fabulous cup of coffee! The ingredients are a combination of New Zealand native Harekeke flax & Kawakawa leaf, along with real Arabica coffee grounds. To use you simply apply a generous amount to damp skin (in the shower is always the best place) & work it into the surface with circular movements- this will remove all those dead skin cells as well as boost circulation. This scrub renders your skin silky smooth, particularly on areas like the backs of your arms & thighs where it can get rough & dry- don’t forget your hands & feet either. Now that I have this lovely glass jar of coffee scrub in my shower Its going to be hard to resist using it every day, but I can recommend you apply it once a week (or twice if you cant help yourself & need a coffee fix…)

Now that your skin is all shiny & new its time to lift the lid off the  Ultimate Goodness Body Butter & I compare the smell of this rich & beautiful cream to an early morning walk in the tropics. The main ingredient is Monoi De Tahiti, which is the legendary ‘Tahitian Gardenia’ wonder oil & Evolu are the first NZ company to include it in a body product. The Tahitians have been using this amazing oil for generations & swear by its ability to deeply hydrate the skin as well as protecting it from environmental damage. This jar of body butter is the ultimate in luxury with a thick & creamy texture that glides onto the skin, absorbing quickly & leaving a silky smooth finish. The first time I used this body butter I loved the scent so much that I decided not to wear perfume… I could smell gardenias all day!

These products go hand & hand, working beautifully together to smooth & moisturize your skin & tantalize your senses. RRP is a very reasonable $34.95 & you can buy directly from Evolu or simply head to the Farmers beauty department to view the full range.

PS- If you love the Invigorating Body Scrub as much as I do you can vote for it as a top product in the Bauer Beauty Awards- just head over to & place your vote…. it deserves to win!


  1. Lovely feedback from Natasha:
    I love Evolu, the cleanser is one of the best I have used & smells great- it does a great cleansing job & takes the redness away. The daily moisturizer is also fantastic- a bit like Clinique Dramatically Different (which is also amazing) I just love these two Evolu products as they are my staples. Love your work Nikki! xx

  2. Thanks to you Nikki I have recently been using the Evolu Nourishing hand + cuticle cream and find it extra moisturising and softening without leaving a sticky residue on my skin – brilliant !!

  3. The hand cream is SOOOO good as well!
