Hope the weather is treating you well today….i love the cold but I’m not a fan of the rain. Fingers crossed it will behave itself today!
Skincare is one of those things that I seem to have tonnes of, the amount of moisturiser and eye cream I have is quite ridiculous, but serums are something I’m always running out of. It’s the same with cleansers, I obviously haven’t overloaded my stash with these and sometimes find it hard to keep up with purchasing them.
Serums can be expensive so I’m always on the look out for an offer or products that are at a lower price without a compromise on effects.
Dr Organic are a company we have bought from many times before and having seen their products on offer in Holland and Barrett I thought I’d pick up some products and see how they fared.
First up is the Rose Otto Restoring Oil Facial Serum. It contains oil of rose damascena and is rich in polypeptides, phospholipids, antioxidants and omegas 3,6,and 9.
You can read the blurb on the back of the box below but essentially this serum contains a lot of different oils to create a super serum. I like that Dr Organic list their ingredients in their products and this is also on the back of the box:
Not sure I need to mention this but just in case, all Dr organic products are free from parabens, SLS, fragrances, harsh preservatives and artifical colours, this brand is definitely one to watch!
The Rose Otto serum has a list of regenerating and anti aging properties including optimising skin hydration, protecting with anti oxidants, reduces appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improves elasticity and firmness.
The bottle itself is very simple and just like a lot of their other products, in a frosted glass and with sturdy white plastic tops.
This serum is dispensed through the lid, there’s a dropper in the lid and you press the button on top to collect and dispense the serum as you please. This took me a little while to figure out as I’d never seen anything like it before….maybe it was a blonde moment? But hopefully this will stop anyone else being confused…!
A lot of Dr Organic products (if not all) are BioActiv and formulated using organically certified and natural extracts. This is great as you know you’re getting what you’re paying for.
This serum is definitely more of an oil than other products that you’d typically call a serum. for this reason it’s harder to ‘layer up’ products which is what I normally do. My normal routine is to apply a serum and then moisturiser, which I find is more difficult as this is more an oil.
However this serum applies really nicely to the skin. I find i need a few drops for my entire face and neck and this sinks in pretty easily. I prefer to use this in the evenings because using an oil in the morning normally spells trouble for my make up!
This serum is really hydrating and it has helped a lot with my dehydration issues.
This costs £12.29 for the 30ml bottle and is currently still on offer on the H&B website. It’s also listed as a customer favourite and has been given 5 stars, obviously everyone agrees that its a great serum!
The Moroccan Argan Oil Instant Tightening Eye Serum was something I’d wanted to buy for a while and the offer gave me the perfect excuse.
I use a lot of eye creams and a serum was something I’d been considering because a serum adds more moisture before a moisturiser and shouldn’t cause any problems with overloading my skin.
My eyes are somewhere that I’d like to keep an eye on so to speak….I have a feeling that my genes will cause my eyes to wrinkle and go ‘baggy’ before anywhere else so I’m constantly trying to find products to freeze/prevent this.
Again the list of ingredients on the side of the box is reassuring as they’re all chemicals that are natural.
The eye serum is a white lotion that dispenses out of a pump, one pump is enough for a generous application for one eye, if you’re eye area is small then one pump is enough for both eyes, depends how much you want to slap on really!
I love that it has the anti aging printed in gold, such a sucker for a bit of sparkle 😉
I really love applying this, my eyes are so sensitive especially on weekends which is when I wear my contacts more often and for longer periods and this helps to keep my eyes more hydrated. Especially after lots of eye make up and false lashes!
The skin around my eye area is a lot more hydrated now and at £11.99 from H&B for 30ml I think this is great value and will last a really long time. I’ve been using mine for 2 months now and only 1/2cm has gone from the top of the bottle.
Another great couple of products from Dr Organic, I cannot wait to try more of theirs especially odd ones like the Snail Gel, can it really be as amazing?! I’m dying to find out!
What do you think of Dr Organic? Have you tried any of their products and have a few favourites?
Let me know!
