I have always been good at taking care of my skin. It just made sense to me that the better you treat your skin, especially the skin on your face, the better you will look and ultimately age. Since I was a preteen I washed my face every morning and night, never went to bed with makeup on (unless I passed out, you remember those college days?), and always remembered to moisturize. All that care throughout the years has paid off and I have been lucky to never suffer from acne or a massive blemish breakout, other than that little monthly pimple I get when you know what happens. So with having great skin my whole life I just assumed after I had Oslo my skin would continue to be great, and I would still glow and  look youthful. Well was I ever in for a shock when the combination of hormones, lack of sleep, and dehydration from breastfeeding, led my skin into a downward spiral. I was also so focused on Oslo and tired, that I started skipping my daily face washes and completely forgetting to moisturize. My skin was seriously taking a hit from my lack of attention to it, and it showed.

After the first few initial months as a new mama, my life started to get back on track. I started my daily skin care routine again, but I felt like I needed something more. I needed to find a new skincare collection that gave me a little 'extra care'. With that in mind, off I went on my internet search to find a natural, organic, locally made, small beauty company that could provide me with the extra care I needed. That's when I discovered the UK skincare brand, Organic Surge

Organic Surge has an exclusive skincare collection called Extra Care, that focuses on rejuvinating, conditioning, and protecting our skin. With those three words and reading through the incredible ingredient list, I was sold. I treated myself to the Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser, the Intesive Smoothing Serum, the Hydrating Eye Cream, the Nourishing Rose Day Cream, the Radiance Recovery Night Cream, and the Muslin Face Cloth. It's rare for me splurge on myself like that, but any new mama can attest that we rarely focus on ourselves, and I really needed a bit of pampering. 

Any new product I get, I try it out for a full week and then give an honest review of what I think. As soon as I received my package from Organic Surge I ran to my bathroom, ripped open the box, and tried it all out on my face. From the first use I could feel a change in my skin. It was instantly smoother and more hydrated than it had been since having Oslo. I was shocked and thrilled with how quickly it had worked for me. I have now been using the Extra Care collection twice daily for one month, and my skin is back to its pre-teen days. 

With any product I love I knew I had to reach out to the company and get more information, and then of course share it all with you. So I am excited to have the founder of Organic Surge, Alan MacKenzie on the blog to answer a few of my questions. 

Why is it so important to use natural and organic products on our skin?

I suffered from skin sensitivity for many years until I tried using products containing natural and organic ingredients. I made the switch and the difference was amazing – my skin felt and looked better within days. This inspired me to create Organic Surge. Simply put by using the right natural and organic products you are treating your skin to more of the good and less of the bad. The fact that all of our products are also certified as suitable for sensitive skin is testament to how skin-friendly they are. Choosing organic also has significant benefits to the environment.

What sets Organic Surge apart from all of the other skincare companies?

Our objective is to make life better; from creating high performance yet pure formulations to our charitable work.

What is the best selling product from Organic Surge?

Our Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser. It contains 99% natural ingredients and is a favourite with all skin types. It's essentially five products in one as it cleanses, tones, exfoliates, detoxifies and removes all traces of make-up. I personally read every single customer review and from the moment our Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser launched it received five star reviews. It's since go on to win awards and our customers come back and buy it again and again and again.

I can back up those five star reviews and would shout it from my rooftop, if Alan wanted me to. This Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser is skin changing, I might even go as far to say it's life changing. Okay calm down Jules... but really I've tried and tested a lot of natural face cleansers and this one is at the top. 

What advice would you give to someone looking to take the plunge and switch to all natural and organic beauty products?

You won't look back! I created Organic Surge as exceptional quality organic skincare products just weren't available at an affordable price. Everyday we hear from our customers that moving to organic has made such a difference to their skin so we are passionate about spreading the word and encouraging more people to go natural.

When I switched all of my beauty products to natural and organic ones two years ago I found it a challenge to find affordable products, that were high performance. It took a long time and I had to try a lot of different companies, but the change is so worth it. I really wish I knew about Organic Surge when I initially made the switch. Their products are simple, straight forward, and are high perfomance. As a busy stay at home mum, that's all I am looking for. Well that and a product that will make me look and feel like Gigi Hadid, is that asking for too much?

Thank you very much to Alan and Daisy of Organic Surge. It's always lovely to support a locally made, certified, and charitable company.

Some other products I love from Organic Surge: Lavender Meadow Hand & Body Care Duo and Clove, Orange & Geranium Foaming Bath.

Stay tuned for an exciting Giveaway on my Instagram October 1st.
