Organic Surge. I’d vaguely heard of the brand but it wasn’t really on my radar. I was out of cleanser nearly when I was offered the chance to try it I was delighted.
The first observation I had to make was that normally I’m not a fan of busy packaging, I like minimalist things generally speaking, sleek and sophisticated, and this is not, but there’s something really appealing about the design of these products, I don’t know why! I just like it!
Organic Surge products are available from Boots and is packed full of natural goodness, organic essential oils, no harsh chemicals and they smell lovely. It’s what I’d call a budget line, i.e. its extremely reasonably priced. It’s been a long long time since I’ve used anything other than Lush or High End brands so I was quite looking forward to giving these a whirl. Here’s the low down on the items I was sent to try.
Daily Care Face Wash. Rose and Geranium oils foam beautiful and clear every last scrap of my make up, with no need for extra eye make up remover, this really does the trick and at £4.99 for 200ml this is unmissable. My total must have from the range.
Gentle Cleansing Lotion. Rosemary, Lemon and Chamomile oils all sweep away your make leaving your skin clean. Does a great job although it is this product that leaves me with my only complaint. There’s no toner in this range and I don’t like cleanser residue left on my skin. I know my skin is clean, but I find a toner essential for refreshing my skin after a cleansing lotion it’s a shame there isn’t one. I don’t have the same desire for a toner after a wash off cleanser. Anyway, this does the job lovely and I’ve just been using it with my Liz Earle toner and it smells beautiful. £4.99 for 200ml.
Super Intensive Daily Moisturiser. Rose and Geranium oils as well as Aloe Vera, this is a real treat. I wish I’d discovered this in my twenties before I wanted all my moisturisers to have SPF and anti aging properties! Actually, I hadn’t realised that I had the dry skin version (there’s also Blissful Daily Moisturiser for normal skin) since this is so light and quickly absorbed. I had noticed my dreaded dry patches remained at bay, it smells gorgeous and again is a total bargain at £7.99 for 50ml. Really nice.
First Class Mask. Rosemary and Lemon Oils this time for deep cleansing and it’s nice and hydrating too. I used this several times (to date) and each time my face has been left feeling clean, fresh and soft! Very nice again. £6.99 for 50ml.
I honestly have nothing bad to say about this range, aside from the fact that I think they should include a toner. For the prices it’s fabulous and I think I will continue without question to use the Daily Care Face Wash and the mask. The reason I probably won’t continue with the other two products is because I like a moisturiser with SPF and anti aging properties and although I wll happily continue to use the cream cleanser, once it’s goe I probably won’t replace because the Face Wash is enough for me. If you don’t like to spend a fortune on products for your skin but you still want products that work, whilst being kind to your skin then check out Organic Surge at your local Boots. I don’t think you’ll regret it!
