Review - Organic Surge part 2

This is part two of my Organic Surge review. This post is going to concentrate on skincare.

L-R: First Class Mask, Refreshing Toner, Eye Gel and Cleansing Wipes

First Class Face Mask - £6.99 for 50ml
This had a very light consistency and it was see through so different to other face masks. It also didn't harden so it was easy to wash off. You leave it on for 5 minutes and after my face felt lovely and soft. I used three pumps for my face so I'd imagine this would last quite a long time if using once or twice a week as recommended.

Pure Extracts Refreshing Toner - £4.99 for 200ml
The toner is fragranced with lemon and as a result it smells amazing! Other toners can smell chemically or really harsh but this one smelt lovely. It left my skin feeling soft and smooth. I think even my mum who never used toners as they're too harsh and drying on her skin would be able to use this one as it's so gentle.

Eye Gel - £7.99 for 15ml
As it's name suggests this is a gel so it is light weight and is absorbed quickly. It is quite cooling which is nice when you're felling tired as it does help to rejuvenate your eyes. Normally I only use eye creams/gels at night but I've been using this in the mornings too as it does absorb quickly. It leaves my skin feeling moisturised and since using it I haven't suffered from sore eczema around my eyes. It is one of the more expensive products by Organic Surge but as far as eye products go it is actually quite reasonable and as it has a pump dispenser there is no wastage as you get a measured amount.

Kiss and Make-Up Wipes - £3.49 for 25 wipes
Firstly these are biodegradable so they are good for the environment! These are thicker than other face wipes I've tried and are more of a cloth than a wipe. They are also very moist and removed all traces of foundation on my skin. My skin was left soft and as they're suitable for sensitive skin it also wasn't left irritated.

L-R: Hand Wash, Daily Care Face Wash and Overnight Sensation Night Cream

Hand Wash - £3.99 for 250ml
There are two different hand wash fragrances: gentle meadow (lavender and geranium) and tropical bergamot (sweet orange and bergamot), I bought both but so far have only used the gentle meadow. At first I wasn't sure if I'd like the floral scent but it's really subtle and it's quite a refreshing change to the normal synthetic overpowering lavender. I use one pump and it gentle lathers, not too much, but my hands get a good clean. It isn't drying like other hand washes and my hands are left feeling soft afterwards.

Daily Care Face Wash - £4.99 for 200ml
This is gentle fragranced with rose and geranium as even thought I'm really not a floral person I love the fragrance! Even after I've got out of the shower I can smell it on my skin and it smells gorgeous! This has a pump dispenser and I use two pumps but I could get away with one as it does gently foam. It removes all trace of make-up (excluding mascara) and my face is left squeaky clean and soft. Currently I'm on my second bottle of this and it last absolutely ages!

Overnight Sensation Night Cream - £7.99 for 50ml
This is quite thick, and I think it's too thick for my normal/combination skin. It did take a little while to sink in but it left my skin lovely and soft when it did. Out of all the Organic Surge products I've tried I think this is the only one I wouldn't repurchase because of it's thick consistency.

So that's my Organic Surge mini series done! So tell me your thoughts; what do you like the sound of? What have you used? Which other Organic Surge products do you recommend? Comment away!
