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!
During 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:
Organic Surge loves your skin, lavishing it with naturally-derived, intensely nourishing ingredients and deliciously fragrant essential oils. Just like your skin, Organic Surge products are NOT tested on animals and are 100% free of harsh chemicals – no parabens, sodium lauryl sulphate, no artificial fragrances or colourants and no genetically modified ingredients. And the very soul of Organic Surge lies in its charitable donations and hands-on work spanning many years.
At Organic Surge we believe that life can be full of enriching experiences, and with a little help we can all live life better. Discover Organic Surge today – use it once, love it forever!
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!
