Green beauty bargain

I've just recently started using a new skincare range, but have been so impressed by it so far that I wanted to share with you. Organic Surge is manufactured in the UK, contains organic essential oils, has no animal testing and contains no chemical nasties like parabens, SLS, petroleum or propylene glycol. And the best bit is that it is really cheap! I have very dry, very sensitive skin, prone to flare ups of redness and flakiness and, for the last few years, have been using products from Neals Yard or Liz Earle - products which I love. However, whilst not being hugely expensive, they are a bit more than I really want to spend on skincare at the moment (as we're all trying to watch the pennies, aren't we?) So, when I spotted this new range in Boots last week, I thought I'd give them a go, especially as they had a "buy one get one free" offer on them. I bought the Gentle Cleansing Lotion and the Super-Intensive Daily Moisturiser and, since starting using them a week ago, my skin is now looking better than it has in a long time! The redness has all but gone, there is no sign of flakiness and my skin is feeling really soft and smooth. The products have a lovely, clean scent and feel really nice on my skin. Obviously, everyone's skin is different so what works for me might not work for you but at such reasonable prices I think it's definitely worth trying. I'm certainly converted! The brand also produce hair and body care products, so I shall definitely be giving those a go too. You can find out more about the brand at

Thanks very much - I will look out for these when I come back to the UK in April. Boots is outstanding value when you compare it to French prices!

I have sensitive skin too - so I am off to Boots SOON.... thanks for sharing - i have been thinking of trying something different (and greener) for a while but just couldn't decide which. Over the years I have bought so many different beauty/skin care products only for my sis or friends to benefit when I am sadly allergic. At least these don't sound like they will break the bank to try!
