I have super dry and dehydrated skin so I love a good facial oil, especially during the colder months to try and restore as much lost moisture as possible. Some oils however have a very rich formula which means they don’t necessarily layer well under makeup, so I have to keep them for my evening skincare routine but I do like to use a more lightweight oil in the mornings providing it doesn’t make my foundation slip around. The Organic Surge Replenishing Facial Oil £24.95 sounded like it could be a promising option, so I couldn’t wait to give it a try.
“For normal to dry or mature skin. For parched skin, this luxurious yet lightweight oil instantly hydrates leaving skin looking and feeling comfortable, soft and fresh. Massage a small amount into your skin whenever it feels tight or dry, or mix a few drops with our Nourishing Rose Day Cream to give an extra boost of moisture.
Works great on beards too!
When I first started blogging, Organic Surge was quite a popular brand but I don’t hear much about them these days which is a real shame as they have some really lovely products. The packaging of the Organic Surge Replenishing Facial Oil is quite luxurious for the price, with a glass pipette dispenser allowing you to control exactly how much or how little you want to use. The oil has a really pleasant scent but it’s not too overpowering like some natural face oils can be, and I like to apply 2-3 drops over my face and neck. It’s nice to massage into the skin, especially when applied with a jade roller.
It’s quite a rich oil but it’s not at all greasy and whilst it does take around ten minutes to fully absorb, it does work nicely under makeup although it does leave a pretty glow to the skin so it might not be suitable for oily skin types should you wish to apply makeup over the top. It leaves my skin feeling super nourished, and super hydrated and I like adding a drop or two to my moisturiser for even more of an hydration boost on colder days.
