Organic Surge | First Class Mask | £8.49* | Link
It's fair to say that my skin has been in need of some TLC the past few weeks. The colder weather really does take its toll on my skin and it's been feeling dryer, more 'clogged' and generally a little worse for wear. I've been trying to detox a little bit in the hope of brightening my complexion as it does tend to get a little dull throughout the colder months - I've been putting extra effort and time into my skincare regime in order to get my skin looking tip-top once again. I've been using this Organic Surge face mask now for a good number of weeks and it's fast become one of my go-to products for when I feel my skin needs an extra bit of rejuvenating! Their 'First Class Face Mask' deep-cleanses the skin and provides added moisture if it's feeling dehydrated - perfect for my combination skin! It contains calming chamomile and 'soothing marshmallow', as well as natural oils and plant extract. The rosemary and lemon oils really come through in the scent of the product - it's very fresh,calming and gentle - with a little citrus kick!
I find the consistency very creamy - it works a treat on my combination skin and it adds moisture to any drier areas without being overly heavy. It smooths out really easily and I find it very easy to get a smooth, even coverage across my face. I simply cleanse my skin as normal, massage some of this on afterwards (I find 2-3 pumps works best for me) and leave it to sink in for 5 minutes or so. It really is that simple. Sometimes, I get put off using face masks because I can't be bothered with the mess of removing it or the whole twiddling my thumbs and waiting for it to dry thing - but the First Class Mask is so quick and fuss-free that I can even apply this in the morning before uni. It doesn't harden like other face masks, and the cream sinks in to the skin without leaving any white residue - in fact, I walked downstairs with a full face of this and nobody batted an eyelid! After the 5 minutes is up, I simply wash off with warm water and pat dry with a towel and my skin is left feeling fresh, smooth and ready to face the day. I find it leaves my skin feeling moisturised, looking brighter and in better condition - any blemishes or red areas feel calmer and I always feel that my skin feels much healthier afterwards. The bottle says that you can actually apply this and leave it overnight for an intense treatment if your skin really is crying out for some love - I can imagine this would be a fabulous way to use the product if you were suffering with dry skin. It really is so gentle that you can leave it on as long as you like.
The Organic Surge First Class Mask retails for £8.49* - in my opinion, a really good price for such a versatile, gentle face mask. I use this once or twice weekly and I feel that my skin instantly feels and looks much better once I've used it. The fuss free, easy to use pump action bottle only adds to its appeal for me and it's worked a treat on my sensitive skin.
