While I have enjoyed a few body products from Organic Surge (see here and here), I have never really tested their skincare products. Time to change then!
Read below what I think!
The brightening hot cloth cleanser (€13.95 for 150ml)
When it comes to face cleansers, I am super picky. Cleansing oils or balms are less my cup of tea since I always find a bit tedious to remove properly the remaining "oil" left by the product on the face. I rather go for a creamy cleansing emulsion.
With that idea in mind, the brigthening cleanser seems to tick many boxes for me. It has a really rich texture and is indeed really nurturing due to the many skin-soothing ingredients it contains: Shea butter, Aloe vera and other moisturising ingredients such as glycerin and Cocoa butter.
I love the pump flacon which delivers the right amount of product needed.
I use it everyday- morning and evening (double cleansing). I massage it into dry or damp skin depending on my skin needs, wait a couple of minutes and then rinse thoroughly.
I like the fact that the scent is really discret with very subtle flowery notes. But more importantly, I find the cleanser gentle, absolutely non irritant for the skin (I rather not use a muslin cloth or any other cleansing accessories at the moment). It leaves my face calmed, soft, and almost glowing. I usually followed up with the awesome Micellar water from Madara (see review here).
All and all, I am very happy with the performance and will definitely repurchase it.
Composition: water (aqua), Aloe barbadensis leaf juice*, Burtyropsermum park (Shea) butter*, glycerin, cetearyl alcohol, glyceryl stearate, dicapryl ether, Theobroma cacao (Cocoa) seed butter*, cetearyl glucoside, benzyl alcohol, Cera alba (beeswax), Pelargonium graveolens (Geranium) flower oil, sodium steroyl glutamate, citrite acid, xanthan gum, Cymbopogon martini oil, dehydroacetic acid, sodium phytate, citrus aurantium Dulcis (Orange peel) oil expressed, Illicum verum (Anise) fruit/seed oil, Mentha arvensis leaf oil, Rosa Damascena flower oil, citral, citronellol, geraniol, limonene, linalool. *ingredients from organic farming. Naturally occurring within essential oils.
The Ecocert certified-deep cleansing mask is designed to purify/clarify the skin. It is suitable for all skin types but I find that this mask may not be the best choice if your skin is really dry/hypersensitive.
The mask features classical clarifying ingredients: Kaolin, Lemon peel oil and Peppermint oil. It does not dry or leave the skin extremely tight (yeah!) and this is because the formulation is enriched with skin soothing ingredients such as glycerin, Sweet Almond oil, and Sunflower oil.
For those who wonder about the texture, it is quite onctuous and looks like a rich cream. It is thicker that I would expect but that its fine.
I use the mask once a week in the evening. I apply a small amount only into the face areas that really need it such as nose, chin or forehead. I rinse it after 15 min but no longer and I also tend to not let it dry. The contenance is rather on the small side, but have been really surprised of how long it lasts.
As an overall, this mask delivers what I expect: a skin refreshed and cleansed yet without being stripped of its natural protection. And for that price, I can not really complain!
