Organic Surge Overnight Sensation Night Cream

Organic Surge Overnight Sensation Night Cream* - £8.99

My favourite ever night cream is Origins High-Potency Night-A-Mins & I'm not sure that anything will change that anytime soon. So how does this offering from Organic Surge compare? They both claim to rehydrate & restore your skin overnight, leaving it looking brighter & more radiant come morning. Despite their vastly different price points they have surprisingly similar results. In some ways Overnight Sensation is the better choice. It's suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin. Like every other Organic Surge product it is untouched by harsh chemicals. The ingredients of this cream are 98.99% natural. Origins are often mistakenly thought of as a natural skincare brand due to the abundance of plant extracts & essential oils in their products. It's certainly no bad thing that their products aren't natural but if that is a concern for you then Organic Surge are a great alternative.

The key ingredient in Overnight Sensation is organic rose geranium oil. This restores the skin's natural balance & helps to boost sluggish skin circulation. It gives the cream the most beautiful rose scent which reminds me of Turkish Delight. It also features green tea & chamomile to naturally reduce any inflammation. The moisturising element comes from a blend of natural glycerine, shea butter, cocoa seed butter, jojoba seed oil, grapeseed oil & vitamin E. The cream itself is fairly thick & rich. It feels very comforting on the skin & eliminates any dryness. It immediately makes my skin feel softer & more hydrated. It does leave a bit of residue on the surface of my skin so it does take a while to sink in properly. Every last drop gets absorbed by the time I've woken up though and then my skin is left looking & feeling amazing. I get a bit nervous about switching moisturisers in case it breaks me out but my skin has been loving it. It definitely lives up to it's promise of making your skin look healthier in the morning which is why I feel it is comparable to Night-A-Mins. It's not quite as moisturising by itself because it doesn't really melt into your skin in the same way but that is easily corrected.

As with all my night creams I prefer to mix this with a facial oil to boost it's hydrating & healing properties. Things like Trilogy Rosehip Oil or Balance Me Radiance Face Oil work really nicely with it. Mixed with a face oil, you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference between Night-A-Mins & Overnight Sensation. An oil adds that melty texture Overnight Sensation lacks on it's own. The main giveaway would be the scent. Personally I still favour Night-A-Mins but for the price this Organic Surge night cream is pretty fantastic.

  3. I've had mixed luck with their products before and I definitely don't need a new overnight cream, but I'm still curious to try!

  4. I usually use Origins Drink Up Intensive before bed but since I've run out and can't afford to replace it this sounds like a great alternative! Especially as it caters to sensitive skin; sounds like a winner!
