Evolve Organic Beauty autumn showcase

The Shard, London

On the night of the rare super blue moon, Evolve Organic Beauty held a showcase to launch its three new products – alip oil, multi-purpose balm and lifting serum – with an introduction by its founder, Laura Rudoe. Attended by PB content writer Ellen Cummings, the event featured an ice luge where guests could mix their own cocktails, a treatment station with a choice of mini-massages, and a photobooth to show off the new lip oil. With views over the city, attendees were in prime position to witness the moon rising over the skyline – when the clouds permitted!

Guests were also lucky enough to try the super-smooth new product for themselves during the demonstrations.
