“ Brand: Organic Surge / Type: Shower Gel / Suitable for: Body „
I get through an awful lot of bath, shower and body products on a weekly basis. Good job I love buying them eh/! I openly admit to being a bit of a brand snob, but at the same time I want a bargain and have to watch my pennies like a lot of people do at the moment!
I am very fortunate to live in a town centre and near a Poundland store and I get the pick of all of the good stuff cos I can check the place out daily should I wish to!
So this cost me a pound for my tube though looking about for prices for shops and online this usually costs more like £3.50a tube! So financially I got myself a bit of a bargain with this one!
Well the tube I have in front of me is partly see through but partly peach in colour with a flip-top lid to the bottom of it concealing a small hole. On the front of it we are told that it is Organic Surge Peach Passion Shower Gel 'Cleanses, refreshes and moisturises. Delicious, natural fragrance' and that it is 'Impressive results without chemical overload' and that the size of it is 250ml and some information is listed on there in a foreign language too. On the back of the tube other information listed includes being told a bit about the product and how to use it, the ingredients are stated and contact details for the manufacturer are listed and once again some of that information is listed in a foreign language. Nice enough and very high quality packaging this is and its highly informative too.
A Bit About The Product According To The Information Listed On The Back Of The Tube:
A happy blend of 99% naturally derived ingredients with certified organic essential oils.
This shower gel gently cleanses and moisturises while the blend of organic essential oils and extracts transports you to a sun-kissed peach woodland.
Well on the back of the tube we are actually told as well that this is peach passion shower gel with spicy peach, apricot and cederwood however this shower gel really is very lightly scented indeed and in fact I only ever have caught aroma from this if smelling it in the tube, certainly not when its in use and no fragrance, once I have used this is left detectable on my body either.
The liquid is thin, gel like though not too thick and is pretty much clear in colour. It doesn't lather up all that well, like I say the scent is barely there but when sniffed in the tube it does smell very delicately of peach with a base not of the cederwood and it really is a shame that this doesn't have more of a fragrance to it.
I need to use rather a lot of this to get a reasonable foam going on and it rinses off easily. My skin feels 'normal' after using this and not particularly moisturised or anything like that but I do feel clean enough even though I'm left rather unscented!
For me the best thing about this is the packaging. Other than that I really am not keen on the product at all. It may be Organic and '99%' chemical free (shame there is a per cent that isn't! lol) but for me this one lacks the richness I experience with other shower gels sadly and I wouldn't buy this again a pound or not. Its not awful but it is too light in fragrance for me and doesn't moisturise my skin as promised either.
Not great sadly!
