Beauty | Organic & Botanic skincare*


A few weeks ago, a company called Organic & Botanic got in contact with me to ask if I would like to try any of their products. As I am always on the hunt for decent skincare products, of course I said yes. I had a browse through their website to see what appealed to me and I really liked the sound of the Mandarin Orange range. Luckily enough for me, they sent me a day cream and a night serum in the Mandarin Orange range.


I was a little anxious at trying these at first as although I love trying new skincare but due to having combination/oily/sensitive skin, a lot of skincare products can make my face go from very little spots to a mass breakout. I have always had a few spots every now and then since my teenage years but at the age of 24, it kind of upsets me if I get mass breakouts now.

Who are Organic & Botanic?

In case you haven’t heard of Organic & Botanic, the below information is from their website but if you would like to know more then follow the link here:

“The finest botanical ingredients in the world.
At Organic & Botanic we bring together an unparalleled selection of the world’s finest natural and organic active ingredients to power our beauty products.
Our products are created using the highest quality, ethically-sourced natural and organic ingredients; and they must be effective, elegant and guilt-free.
We insist on NO parabens, NO harmful preservatives and NO animal testing.
This range embodies our belief in the potent power of botanicals.”



What did I think?

After receiving the products, I was very eager to try them out. When I first opened them they have pleasant smell of the mandarin orange. They do not cause breakouts to my skin and nor do they leave it feeling greasy and sticky. It actually feels like the products actually sink into your skin rather than sitting on the top. I actually feel that they keep my face feeling refreshed rather than just a bit of grease sit of there and not doing a lot. You also don’t need to us a lot of it, I would say a pea size amount of the cream and a couple of drops of the serum.


The only negative comment I have to say is that if you are on a budget then these are probably a little out of your price range as they are not cheap. But, like I said, they last a long time so in the grand scheme of things and overtime they aren’t that expensive. It just depends if you have that money at the time. If you are a student then student loan day is probably the best time for you to buy this and stock up.


Would I buy again?

Yes. Depending upon what my monthly budget was and outgoings I had, if the cash was spare then yes I would buy again for the exact reasons I have already stated that I liked about it. You can purchase the cream and the serum for £57.06 each or check out the other ranges on offer as they have Amazonian Berry and Madagascan Coconut.
