Organic Surge Eye Gel

In this day and age, how we look has become incredibly important. With adverts on the television and beauty magazines pushing “anti-wrinkle” creams at us, it is becoming abundantly clear that we’re expected to look our best at all times. While many may not take this advice to heart, a large proportion of people are now more worried about their appearance. One of the biggest issues that many people face is the area around the eyes. How can we keep it looking fresh and healthy when we’re not sleeping as well as we should?

There are many creams and gels that are available on the market that we can use but just as we can never be sure if the anti-wrinkle creams work until we try them, the same can be said for these eye products as well. We don’t want to be fishing out a large sum of money on a product that we’re not even sure will work. Plus, if you’re as eco-conscious as we are here in the office, you also want to make sure that the product you’re buying hasn’t been tested on animals and are using lots of products that are beneficial to the environment.

So, to save you the trouble of trying cream after cream, I am here to tell you all about Organic Surge Eye Gel, which, in my opinion, works incredibly well. This gel is easy to apply, is safe to use even on the most sensitive skin and those blemishes around the eyes that give away our unhealthy lifestyle vanish until we look clear and crisp in the blink of an eye*. But for me, there is more to the workability of this product. It doesn’t just aim to make you look good, but it also makes you feel good as well. The ingredients in the product work by rejuvenating the skin around the eye and making you feel healthier in an instant.

Aside from how well the product works, I also found the packaging to be incredibly handy as well. It has an easy-to-use push which only releases a small amount of gel which you can then apply to the skin. It is small but lasts for a long time but also means that it is easy to carry with you when you travel. It has a simplistic design which may not draw the eye completely but it does show what this small product can do. It is a simple product that does a lot, it simply works. And, finally the colours work really well together, making the product look beautiful and interesting. Definitely something that I would happily pick up from the shelves.

If this sounds like the kind of product that you’d like to use within your home, the company that we use – and love – is Natural Selection. What’s great about this website is that while you’re buying this product, you can browse the hundreds of other eco-friendly products on offer. What’s not to love about that?

Method Squirt & Mop

One of the reasons I opt for using eco-friendly products in my home is because I have three cats and one day want to have children and wish for them to be brought up in a clean and friendly environment that is good for their health. I have found that the biggest problem area for this is cleaning our hard floors with products that work but without highly toxic chemicals. So, in our search to find the best product, we stumbled across Method Squirt & Mop and have found it to be a truly remarkable product.

This is an eco-friendly product that has a tagline which states it is “safe for all floors, safe for the planet.” I would happily add in there; safe for all the family as well. With no harsh chemicals, this product is one that we feel great about using in our home and feel that many parents would agree with us as well. There is no worry for the safety of children or pets who may eat something that has dropped onto the floor and been there for a long time. Using this product means that there is less need to use products like Flash which are often toxic and harmful.

Aside from this, this product also has a very nice smell. It doesn’t smell like detergent that makes you feel like your home is being cleaned with strong, disgusting chemicals but instead it is a smell that is a mix of lemon and ginger. It leaves your house smelling fresh and clean, almost like the smell of your house on a summer’s day when you leave your windows open all day long, and I honestly couldn’t recommend the smell more. As soon as we started using this we knew that we would never be returning to other methods of cleaning the floor.

On top of everything else, this product is really easy to use and lasts for a long time as well. There is no need to mix this one in a bucket of water, which is often a long and tiring chore. All that is needed for this product is to squirt it on the floor you wish to clean and then to simply mop over it. It is quick and efficient and just simply does the job that it sets out to do in an easy way. No more scrubbing on the floor, just a simple wipe and done motion. So not only is this product safe for people with children, it is also good because it can be used with the children around as it doesn’t take too long to do! It is therefore impossible not to recommend this product.

Ecover Multi-Action Spray

There is a lot of worry when it comes to eco-friendly products and whether or not they actually work, because if they do, why did we ever need highly chemicalized products in the first place? But as we step closer to the future, it is becoming clear to many people that not only do these products work, many are easier, smell nicer, and are effectively better than anything used previously. They’re, quite simply, desirable.

Ecover Multi-Action Spray is just one example of this. Unlike non-eco multi-purpose sprays, this spray is less likely to ruin your delicate surfaces and is a lot nicer on your skin, henceforth making it a wise and worthy choice for your home. Aside from this it also works well with minimal effort, which is yet another worry when it comes to eco-friendly products. No one wants to have to apply more hand-power when there is already a product which is easier to use. Fortunately, using Ecover’s Multi-Action Spray is as simple as spraying and wiping, the simple basics needed for any cleaning task.

Another issue that arises when it comes to changing the sprays we use daily is the smell of the product. If you’re going to be using the spray within your home, it is only natural that you would want a product that smells pleasant. Fortunately, I can report that Ecover Multi-Action Spray has a light smell that is easy on the nose. With citrate as one of its few ingredients, this product smells similar to leading brands on the market but less pungent and irritating on the senses. It is one of the best qualities of this eco-friendly spray.

If all of this still isn’t enough to persuade you to switch to Ecover Multi-Action Spray, perhaps the simplicity of the design will be enough to appeal to your eye. Contrasting other multi-purpose sprays on the market, Ecover may not seem as loud due to its more natural and subdued colours – there are no bright fluorescent colours here! – but this design merely reflects the product inside the bottle. There is nothing artificial or loud about this spray, it is merely natural, simple, and easy. Furthermore, as an added bonus, this bottle even has what may at first seem to be an odd looking bottle lid, but is actually the perfect shape to hang your bottle on a hook, rather than clutter the floor space of the cupboard under the sink!

If this sounds like the kind of product that you’d like to use within your home, the company that we use – and love – is Natural Selection.

Bio-D Dishwasher Rinse Aid & Dishwasher Powder

In this new age, the vast majority of people now own a dishwasher, but with the main brands on the market being non-eco products, how do we know which eco-products actually work in our machines? Today I am here to tell you all about Bio D Dishwasher Rinse Aid and Bio D Dishwasher Powder. These are two compatible products that work extremely well and are also, thankfully, eco-friendly. They may not be the biggest brands on the market, but after many tests, it is clear that they work extremely well.

One reason why people are worried about changing the brand they use to clean their dishes is the cleanliness of the dishes when the cycle is complete. How can it be guaranteed that this product will clean the plates until all the dirt is completely gone and their sparkling once again? While it would be impossible for me to truly guarantee that these products will be better than the one you currently use – especially without knowing which product you’re using – I can argue that this product does work. There are enough quality chemicals in the dishwasher powder to clean the stains from your dirty dishes and the best possible chemicals in the dishwasher rinse aid to leave your plates looking brilliantly clean and new again.

With easy to follow directions on the packaging, it is impossible to go wrong with the usage of these items. This means that you will always get the same amount of washes from the tub as it mentions on the packaging. It may be a little more fiddly then the easy tablets that the leading brands use, but this powder is good for the envrioment, good for you and good for your machine. Why would you turn all of that away simply for a slightly easier tablet? It is clear that these products are the perfect eco-friendly products to use for your dishwasher.

The only thing about these two items that may put people off purchasing is the packaging. While we may all wish that we don’t judge products by their bottles, it would be a lit to admit that we don’t. Bio D’s Dishwasher Powder comes in a simplistic tub and while the label works well, the tub itself is unattractive and not something anyone would necessarily pull off of the shelf without knowing something more about the product. Bio D Dishwasher Rinse Aid, on the other hand, is in a funky looking bottle with a fun label on the front designed to capture the consumer’s gaze and have them wonder about the product inside. All I can say is look passed these simplistic packaging’s, and let the product inside do all the persuading.

BullDog Men’s Original Face Scrub

As a man, using face scrub is not the most popular thing in the world, especially when the packaging looks too feminine. None of us wants to be found in the possession of such girly accessories unless they belong to our significant other. Therefore, it is with enthusiasm that I report that Bull Dog’s Original Face Scrub doesn’t give off a feminine vibe at all. In a small bottle, it has a simple design in subdued tones. It is the simplicity that gives it that edge over other products, and it’s just nice to know that this also reflects the eco-product inside the packaging.

But while we may first be allured by the packaging, the product inside actually has to work for it to be a scrub we’ll actually purchase. After testing the product personally, I can say with a fair amount of certainty that this product does everything that it should do; without leaving skin dry and horrid afterwards as well. It is easy to use, and just simply works as it should. There really isn’t much more that one could ask for. Yet, this scrub also smells refreshing and is only a light smell which, fortunately, also doesn’t irritate the eyes. It is a product that I would be happy to continue using.

Bentley Organic Bodywash

There are hundreds upon thousands of products out there that we can use to clean ourselves in the shower so how do we go about choosing the right one for us? Personally I believe that the choosing of soap is mostly to do with the smell of the product and the feel of it. I don’t like soaps that are rough, or ones that are too liquid-y, or the ones that feel too much like gel either – yes I have been told I’m fussy. So when I find a product that I love and am happy to use time and time again, I feel it is only necessary to tell everyone about it. The newest product that I have gotten my hands on is Bentley Organic Bodywash.

This product has first, and foremost, an incredibly delectable smell. It is olive, tea tree, and eucalyptus, and somehow these three smells combined form a truly sensational smell – in my opinion anyway. It is a smell that makes showering a little bit nicer and it often stays on the skin long after getting out as well. Personally I never used to like the smell of tea tree, it reminds me too much of hours being spent trying to get rid of head lice as a child, but it works so well in this bottle that I would advise you not to avoid this product simply because of the tea-tree smell.

Secondly this product is also the perfect consistency. It isn’t too gel-like, too liquid-y, and it isn’t rough either! This soap is smooth, silky, and leaves your skin feeling truly clean and refreshed. Of course, this product is also, thankfully, eco-friendly made with organic products that are used to clean your skin with anti-bacterial agents. Even though only 80% of the ingredients are organic, the quality of this product is so enriching that it makes it seem like a small price to pay, it is, after all, better than using no organic products at all. It has also been dermatogically tested which means that is safe to use and that is always something that we like to see in these eco-products.

As for the packaging of this product, it is quite a nice label that will easily attract the eye. It is in a clear bottle so it is easy to know when you’re coming to the end of the product – and when you need to buy more – and it also means that the customer can see the product in its entirety right there on the shelf. It is in an easy to use bottle with a quick flip. The only issue I did have with it is that it pours out of the bottle without squeezing so if it falls into the bath – while the liquid is slow to release – it is possible to lose some down the drain – but unless you’re an ultimate klutz, this isn’t likely to happen very often. Aside from that, this is a good bottle for a good product and one that I really think you should be using.

Method Laundry Detergent

With so many different brands of washing detergent being stocked in supermarkets, it is usually incredibly difficult to know exactly which product to use. How is it possible to know which product will give the best results without trying each and every product yourself? Which, unfortunately, is often not possible due to unattainable costs. While many will reach out for the leading brands in the market, such as Ariel and Persil, they may not necessarily be the best products, and are definitely not the cheapest. These brands force smaller, unknown brands to fall behind in sales leaving quality products to face extinction.

One such product is Method’s Laundry Detergent. This physically small bottle of detergent is a literal example of the phrase, “Big Things come in Small Packages”. This laundry detergent is a liquid that fights even the toughest stains while using eco-friendly ingredients that are brilliant for anyone with sensitive skin. It may seem that due to using lighter chemicals it could not possibly have the strength the fight the hard stains that we deal with day to day on our clothes, but this product is one that works incredibly well, and uses only a small portion of liquid to do so.

This product is not only great at removing stains, it also comes in a very handy uniquely designed bottle that allows you to only ever use the right amount of the liquid – thus preventing any loss of liquid due to estimate work. This design is also easy to use, using the familiar technology of hand wash with exact precision so as to avoid unnecessary spills. Personally, the style of the bottle is one of the biggest reasons why I enjoy using this product so much. When I used to use powdered detergents, I often ended up using too much detergent and wasting money, as well as ruining my washing machine with all the excess soap, but this design just simply cuts costs in half.

It would be irresponsible to continue speaking about this product without mentioning the biggest reason why people will change the laundry detergents they use; the smell. This detergent has a very fresh, tangibly pleasing smell that soaks nicely into the clothes without being overpowering. It leaves a very sensual smell, one which is difficult to find without using a fabric conditioner alongside your detergent. It seems almost illogical that such a strong and efficient detergent could possibly leave clothes smelling so utterly intoxicating but that is simply everything that this small bottle of Method Laundry Detergent manages to do. It is the perfect step towards a future that is truly eco-friendly.

Organic Surge Shine Boost Shampoo

Today I have for you another review of an Organic Surge product that has been a huge hit in the office; Shine Boost Shampoo. After sampling it myself and revelling in how shiny and silky smooth my hair was, my fellow female colleagues demanded to know what I used and, as these things go, went out and tried the shampoo for themselves. Shine Boost Shampoo has all of the eco-friendly ingredients that you’d expect to find in an Organic Surge product and just simply works incredibly well after just the first wash.

Why did I like it so much? The smell, for one, was really refreshing and my hair smelt lovely throughout the day – I will admit to sneakily putting it in my face just to get another whiff of the lovely citric smell, but don’t spread that around! – and it made my hair feel so smooth and sleek as well. It was the kind of feeling you get after using hair straighteners but I didn’t use any! I couldn’t recommend this product enough and from the smell of the office today, I can probably say with some certainty that my colleagues agree!

This product is best used with Organic Surge Shine Boost Conditioner.

Faith In Nature – Purifying Cleansing Lotion

If there is one thing that we ladies love, it is fresh, silky, healthy looking skin. While we are aware that some women may take a long time scrubbing their skin raw or may have the money to afford at the spa to keep their skin fresh, we just simply don’t have the time or money for all of that – and I’m sure you probably don’t either! So how do we keep our skin feeling soft without the expense of regular spa treatments? We have found the answer in a wonderfully eco-friendly product; Faith in Nature; Purifying Cleansing Lotion.

 

This small, but heavily effective lotion is pretty priceless – in my opinion anyway – as it does everything that it sets out to do. On the back of the bottle it states that it ‘leaves the skin feeling, and looking, toned and refreshed’, and I couldn’t agree more. After only a few uses of this lotion I could already feel and see the results. My skin was no longer dry and breaking, it wasn’t rough from a hard day working but continued to stay smooth and gentle to touch. For the job that I do, I couldn’t ask for a nicer heaven then having skin that wasn’t ruined by the harsh chemicals I work with.

 

Other reasons that this lotion is a godsend for me is that it is one of those lotions that actually has a nice smell to it. Some lotions – and soaps – have some really awful smells that I would rather not be associated with me and my skin, but this Purifying Cleansing Lotion has a very fresh and lovely smell about it. It is also hypoallergenic and paraben free which means that people with sensitive skin – like me – get to use it without worrying about the rash that often follows when trying all of these new and expensive products.

 

Of course, the packaging is also worth noting. It is a simplistic design, a white colour for a white product with a catchy logo for the company standing out. It has an easily recognisable dispenser that is simple to use and just simply fits nicely on the bathroom shelf. On top of all of that, however, let’s not forget that this product is also eco-friendly. Used with ingredients that are safe for the environment, we can use this product knowing that the we’re helping to save our planet. It is also a vegan friendly company and never uses animals to test their products either. It’s hard not to want to try this lotion out when you have all of those factors in the balance.

 

This product works best when used with Faith in Nature; Replenishing Moisturising Cream.

Natural Home Made Insect Repellent – CHEAP

Natural Insect RepellentBeing someone who seems to get more than his fair share of insect bites in the summer I have to use insect repellents to prevent all kinds of insect from being attracted to my delicious skin. I thought this would be the perfect time to share this great natural solution that not only takes 2 seconds to make, but costs less than the store bought repellents and does a better job.

For this natural insect repellent you will need the following:

  1. A small empty spray bottle
  2. Citronella
  3. Thistle Oil

You simply put 100ml of Thistle oil into the spray bottle, add 20 drops of Cintronella (don’t exceed 20 drops per 100ml as Cintronella is strong), shake and you’re ready to go.

I find 100ml per spray can last a good few weeks and is small enough to store in handy locations like the car for random visits to a park.

This insect repellent works perfectly, as soon as I use it all bites stop and I no longer have to deal with itchy legs for the next few days, and best of all, it’s completely natural, no harsh chemicals here.

Below is where you can buy each of the supplies needed.
