The Organic Surge Extra Care line is such a lovely range and I'm a big fan of their Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser. Over the last few weeks I've been trialing their Ultra-Light Oil Control Lotion which is suitable for normal to dry or mature skin, and is designed to protect the skin from environmental influences, allowing it to develop and maintain a balanced level of naturally produced protective oils. The lightweight lotion is packed with skin loving nutrients to replenish and soothe the skin by infusing it with a superior blend of argan leaf, damask rose, geranium, safflower and sweet orange oils.
Packaged within a clear, glass bottle with a pump dispenser. I really like the white and metallic red colour scheme as it looks really luxurious compared to their main line. The white lotion has a gel-like consistency, which absorbs into the skin almost instantly and it really is lightweight, without leaving any residue or stickiness on the surface of the skin. To begin with, I didn't know how best to introduce the lotion into my skincare regime but I've found that it's best to use it after my serum in the place of my moisturiser in the mornings as it's quite moisturising.
My skin is very dry so I don't struggle with oily skin, but I imagine that this lotion would be really effective at combating shine as it has a mattifying effect on the skin which is ideal before applying foundation. Even though I don't have oily skin, I struggle with shiny skin as my moisturiser and serum are so intensive, so this helps to keep that shine at a minimum. I like that by adding this into my skincare regime, I'm protecting my skin and it also happens to smell very lovely too which makes application even more pleasurable.
