From my other reviews you may have realised by now that I am a huge fan of natural or organic skincare products, so I had to give the Organic Surge range a go.
The Organic Surge Overnight Sensation Night Cream comes in a chunky glass tub with a chunky plastic screw on lid. I quite like this packaging design as it's easy to get the cream out meaning none is wasted and also I suspect it would be quite difficult to break this tub - handy for me as I am quite clumsy. However, being so chunky, particularly the lid, from an environmental point of view I feel that they are probably quite wasteful in creating such packaging which is a bit of a shame.
The cream itself is a thick white cream with a very very slight hint of purple or pink, although the tub does state that the colour can vary slightly due to the natural ingredients. I find this cream to be the perfect consistency for a night cream as it feels thicker than a day cream, yet isn't so thick that it just sits on your skin and doesn't sink in. In fact, I find this absorbs into the skin very quickly indeed and without any greasy residue or shine at all.
The scent of this cream is very subtle and slightly herbal or floral - a very natural scent that probably comes from the organic rose geranium essential oil that it contains. With regards to the ingredients, Organic Surge products contain no sodium lauryl/laureth sulphate or parabens and so are probably quite good for sensitive skins. I have experienced no skin irritation with this product.
I apply this product before bed and find that I can get straight into bed within a minute without having to worry about getting moisturiser all over the pillows, as this sinks in really quickly. The scent is quite relaxing which is good for bed time, and my skin feels really moisturised but not clogged or greasy. When I wake up in the morning my skin feels healthy and smooth, and I haven't suffered any overnight break-outs with this product.
Overall I really like the Organic Surge night cream. At £7.99 for 50ml it is a little pricier than some brands but also alot cheaper than others. As you don't need to use a large amount of this cream the tub tends to last quite a while, perhaps a month or two, which isn't too bad. I think I will be sticking with this product for quite some time. I wouldn't say that it makes a drastic difference to skin overnight, but it seems to have struck a rare balance between intense moisturising and not clogging the skin or making it feel greasy. And there's the added benefit of it being alot more natural that many other brands.
