This post has been a long time coming as we were given these at the Bristol Blogger meet a fair few months ago….but working through our stashes it has taken a while to get to them.
Dr Organic is a great brand, they have an amazing versatile range and cover every possible scent you could ever wish for from a brand. They include pomegranate, lavender, tea tree, coconut and manuka honey, they even have a product containing snail gel!
Today we’re reviewing their Virgin Coconut Oil Night Cream and Moroccan Argan Oil Day Cream.
The Coconut Oil Night cream has a list of claims detailed on the side of the box which sounds very promising! These invlude overnight hydration even down to the trans dermal level, improving firmness and tone of skin and protecting against free radicals.
I love that Dr Organic list all of the bioactive, natural and organic ingredients in their products, some of which I’ve never heard of but I love the honesty.
As we’ve mentioned in previous posts on products from Dr Organic, all of them are free from parabens, SLS, artificial colours, fragrances and any harsh preservatives.
The packaging is really simple and the pots are made of glass which is a really nice touch. The screw top lids are really good too, it might be a random thing to notice but they’re really easy to unscrew but there’s no chance of them coming off and spilling product everywhere.
And as always, i love simplistic styles and this ticks all my boxes.
For me, the Coconut Oil night cream was really thick in consistency and is initially hard to absorb into the skin. I found applying it as a face mask before bed was a better way for the product to provide it’s maximum hydration.
I loved the feeling of my skin the next day, but as it’s so thick I did use a lot more product than i would normally but I think it was still worth it!
Plus it smells gorgeous!
The Argan Oil Day cream is lighter and has the same claims as the night cream, with an added one of increasing Vitamin C production.
The Argan Oil Day cream absorbed more easily into my skin than the night cream, which is obviously better as I’m always in a rush in the morning and haven’t got time to sit and wait for it to absorb before applying my make up.
This day cream smells pretty good too, and I love that the pots have the three main features of the product on the sides: Firming, toning and cell protecting. all three of these sound pretty good to me!
I have really enjoyed using both of these moisturisers and look forward to purchasing more from their range. I am a big fan of the lip balms and their coconut hand cream is amazing!
There are plenty more products I’d love to try including their Virgin Coconut Oil Moisture Melt Body Oil, Rose Otto Facial Serum and Snail Gel.
Which are your favourite products from Dr Organic? I really do want to try EVERYTHING!
I was initially concerned about using these products as I have oily combination skin and worried that a product for nourishment and hydration would be too much for my skin but I was pleasantly surprised.
I love the glass packaging. Glass always makes something feel more luxurious. Both the day and night creams are really thick creams that sink into the skin. The day cream feels light on the skin and doesn’t leave me oily. It leaves my skin with a great base for my foundation.
The night cream is really thick and I did think because of this it would leave my skin feeling super soft but as L mentioned you do need to apply a lot of it to get those results. I do feel like I need to use more of this than most creams and therefore have found it’s not been lasting too long.
I have liked both of these creams and they have made me want to try more of there products and some specifically for my skincare. Any recommendations?
