Hey queen bees… my latest product review is on Organic Surge’s Daily Care Face Wash.
Have been using Ponds flawless white face wash for almost a year now and wanted to try a new one.. something natural too and with less chemicals..
Believe I was in a mood of indulgence.. and that time I was browsing through – Fashion & You – the site which has termed 2011 as the ‘Year of Indulgence’.
Had to pick up this one – self-gifting for Diwali!
About the product:-
Organic Surge is well-known brand abroad and is based out of UK. Had rave reviews about its products in various forums.. and the offer too was tempting to buy one!
What the product claims:-
Your skin’s best friend! – Yes this is wat it says…
The face wash is suitable for all skin types which cleanses, refreshes and moisturizes with skin loving ingredients. Its sensitive skin tested too!
For happy-ever-after skin..this gentle, caring face wash rinses away makeup and impurities without drying your skin. Natural glycerin and aloe vera moisturize while organic rose geranium essential oil helps to clear a dull, sluggish complexion and restore the skin’s natural balance.
They also claim:-
Organic Surge effective, honest products are packed with skin-loving, naturally-derived ingredients. They contain no sodium laureth sulphate or parabens for your precious skin to absorb.
Aqua (water), Aloe vera leaf juice, sodium coco-sulfate*, cocamidopropyl betaine*, decyl glucoside*, glycerin(veg)*, sodium lauryl glucose carboxylate*, coco-glucoside*, Pelargonium graveolons flower oil*, sucrose laurate/alcohol, boswellia carteril*, tocopherol*, sorbic acid, benzoic acid, benzyl alcohol, citric acid*, sodium chloride*, geraniol, citral, linalool.
(* – naturally derived ingredients)
- Packaging:-It comes in a tall plastic container with a pump. The cap is pretty sturdy and does not fall off from hold. Pump packaging is really welcome – since its great to carry along while travelling or also for hygienic daily use. It also helps to take only limited or required amount using the press.
- Price: INR 595 for 200 ml. (I got this for INR 385 + Free shipping from FnY during their Diwali sales).
The way I see this face wash:-
Let me first confess… I am a total rose fragrance lover!
This was one of the reasons too.. to buy this product.. since I have never used a face wash with rose fragrance yet.
The product got delivered just in 2 days of ordering in a neat yet simple packaging..When I took the container in my hands.. was not disappointed for the amount I paid.. it looks too tall or big for a 200 ml packaging..
The face wash is a clear liquid in a lotion consistency and delivers oodles of rose fragrance.. I am using Fabindia’s rose geranium face scrub and then got this too in rose!! Cant ask for more.. I feel luxury..
The first two times I used this face wash, I felt it was not lathering that too well for an ideal face wash..I am one person who kinda believes only if it lathers.. it cleans well..so was a little upset with this one.
But made a commitment to use it daily for its claims to be all natural or naturally-derived ingredients.
Then I realized the fact that my hands were too wet while pumping this face wash and so it coudnt build better lather.. from then on I got my hands only a little wet and then built good lather on my hands before applying to the face.. for an all-natural claim this one built good lather for sure!
I wanted to test their claim on makeup removal too.. I apply kohl daily so wanted to check if this one can remove that too… and yep it survived the test with decent scores..
Though it couldn’t remove all of the kajal, it just left only traces of it in the eye.. from the next time on I think I have learnt using the face wash. It cleans up all my eyeliner, kohl and sindoor to in one go.. yes… I feel my cleanest best..
My skin feels squeaky clean and it has also brought a slight glow to my face.. not sure if its because of this face wash or my daily routine.. all’s for good anyways
You will be surrounded by a little strong rose fragrance post usage.. which I personally love!
