One of mum Clare has returned to give an update on the body care products by Organic Surge - read how she's getting on below.
With names like ‘Fresh Ocean’, and ‘Citrus Mint’, these shower gels were already right up my street before I had even opened them. I am sure that I am not alone in having to opt for zingy, fresh, unisex products that won’t leave me smelling like a 17 year old boy, or my 6ft hulk of a husband wafting through the office in a floral haze. I did wonder how it was possible to encapsulate the smell of the ocean in a tube of shower gel, but, by jove, they have done it. It is deliciously light and fresh, and the perfect fragrance to grace your nostrils first thing in the morning. The light lather means that a little goes a long way, and my skin was left feeling nourished, as promised.
For a slightly more energetic awakening, the Citrus Mint shower gel packs a mouth-wateringly refreshing punch. The blend of organic essential oils means that the aroma is very natural, and does not linger on the skin or interfere with any other fragrances you may be wearing. For the price (£4.07), I was very impressed, as similarly priced products on the market can have the tendency to smell rather synthetic or be too overbearing.
The Gentle Meadow Body Lotion was definitely a mummy only product in our household. It smelt gorgeous, with a gentle hint of geranium and lavender, and was absorbed quickly into my skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth. It was gentle enough to use straight after shaving my legs and, like the shower gels, a little went a long way, so it has definitely been great value for money at £5.99.
Whilst I am still eking out the last of the body lotion, much to my despair the shower gel has all disappeared, so I am off to the Organic Surge website to put in my next order…
Until next time…Clare x
