Organic Surge Orange Flower Toner


This is one of the only products I’ve tried from Organic Surge that don’t like. There are plenty that I’d happily use but wouldn’t buy again, a few I absolutely love but no others that I can think of that I really didn’t get along with.. but I just couldn’t make this work for me. First of all the name suggests it will smell citrusy, and fresh – it smells like antiseptic to me, secondly I thought it would be a nice refreshing step after cleansing or just to wipe away any residue before applying makeup etc.. it didn’t feel refreshing at all, it felt sticky and odd. My main gripe with this toner was that gentle as I’m sure it is I’m fairly certain it caused me to break out as my skin had been behaving for MONTHS and this was the only thing I changed in my routine. I just don’t get it, I’ve read other reviews and nobody else seems to have had anything but glowing things to say about it.. maybe I got a dud?! I just don’t love it but I will be passing it on to one of my friends and if they feel totally differently about it then you can expect an update!

Have you tried this?

    I’ve been using the Botanics All Bright toner that you recommended in a video last year and I love it. I was looking at Organic Surge the other day but I think I like my products with more chemicals in – I like shampoo to lather and my skin to feel clean after I’ve cleansed and toned so maybe I’ll give this a miss too.

    Thanks for the review!

    Such a shame this product was so much of a fail! I haven’t loved a lot f their products in the past, either.

    I have been looking for a toner lately and hopefully a natural/gentle one, which is why I got so excited when I saw the thumbnail for this review on your home page but now I am so bummed to hear that not only I didn’t live up to its hype but made you breakout…so frustrating
