Beauty | June collaboration with Organic Surge…

Lou Archell Organic Surge June 2016 Do you remember back in March when I had a meltdown/freak out about how OLD I was looking!  Well, I am well and truly middle aged, yeah I’m gonna say it, I’m not getting younger so I may as embrace the now and save what youthful looks I may have.

I have a few grey hairs (thanks kids) but thankfully my hair doesn’t need colouring, yet, or maybe never – we shall see. It was my skin that looked sallow, dull complexion and grey.

These past few months I have taken time to look after myself.  Trying a new skin care regime and different products.  So far my skin is looking brighter, healthier and I’ve got my spark back.  So much so that at SISTERHOOD the other weekend, I had compliments saying how bright eyes and well I looked!  YAY!

Lou Archell Organic Surge June 2016During my skin care search I came across Organic Surge.  A small, family run, Scottish based skin care company with natural organic goodness at it’s heart.  They say:

So great to find a company with great ethics, great ingredients and zero chemicals. Ecocert certified which means everything has at least 96% natural ingredients. I tried these:

Shine & Boost Shampoo – which nourished my hair and is gentle enough that my kids use it too.

Shine & Boost Conditioner – rich and deliciously scented, but not to heavy that my hair felt lank afterwards.

Tropical hand & body wash – I use this in the shower, smells amazing.

Brightening hot cloth cleanser – I am a huge fan of hot cloth cleansing, and this product is the bomb. Removes all makeup and feel soft on the skin.

I follow my shower cleaning routing with these:

Hydrating Eye Cream – I need to protect my eyes from any further crows feet and bags.

Intensive serum – now a serum was new to me, I couldn’t understand what does the serum do, that a moisturiser doesn’t. I still don’t really, all I know is I’m going to stop using it as it works!

Replenishing facial Oil – I only use this at night, as of course it’s too oily for the day. BUT the next morning my skin glows!
