Meet my new favourite product from Organic Surge - their Replenishing Facial Oil*. It has taken two years to develop and forms part of their new premium Extra Care range.
As expected from the brand, this is a natural and organic oil which claims to instantly hydrate skin to rejuvenate, condition and protect normal, dry, mature or very sensitive skin types whilst also balancing out problem areas of the skin.
The three key active ingredients in the product are Argan Oil (to nourish skin and increase skin elasticity), Yarrow Oil (to naturally soothe skin and reduce inflammation) and Safflower and sunflower oils to naturally moisturise the skin.
Organic Surge say that the best way to apply this is with warm fingertips after cleansing and before moisturiser, or alternatively it can be added to face creams or face masks. I was a bit wary of applying it on its own to my face as do get oily on my t-zone, so I decided to mix a couple of drops (it comes with a pipette so is easy to regulate how much you use) with my moisturiser. It has a very strong lavender scent, but it's delightful and a really relaxing fragrance for before bed.
I was impressed as soon as I started applying my new moisturiser/oil combo. I could feel the moisture hit my skin straightaway and it felt so luxurious to use. I woke up the next morning and my skin felt so soft and hydrated. Tonight I may go crazy and apply it following a cleanse and before moisturiser to see if this is an even more effective way of using it.
The Organic Surge Replenishing Facial Oil is priced at £23.50 for 30ml and can be purchased from www.organicsurge.com or in leading retailers such as John Lewis and Waitrose.
