Organic Surge Tropical Bergamot Body Lotion - Your skin's best friend

Wednesday, April 29, 2015

I have a very strange skin, I really do not understand it sometimes. At times it gets super oily and at times it craves for moisture even during hot and humid summer. Summer or winter I cannot live without a moisturizer.  

I was using the The Body Shop White Musk Libertine Body Lotion, which was almost at the bottom of the bottle. During a very productive online retail therapy on a rainy sunday afternoon, I got this body lotion. What attracted me towards this the bright orange circle saying very brightly :

And I am SOLD.

Organic Surge is a well loved brand in the beauty world for its organic products. The Organic Surge Tropical Bergamot Body Lotion is a moisturising body lotion with pure sweet orange and bergamot essential oils. This nourishes and rehydrates to soften, smooth and protect skin.

The body lotion comes in a plastic tube with flip cap.  I like the purple casing, feels so girly. What I liked most is the company's involvement for society. They support the Baby Care Unit of Kenya's Children Home.   And against animal testing. Thumbs Up for that as well.

This contains all the ingredients which are basically moisturizing. You can see that no parabens in the list. And all are sourced from organic farming. Enriched with Bergamot and sweet orange oil essential oil.

This should more be called a body cream than a lotion. This is the thickest of all body lotion I have ever used. The color is a creamy white with a very faint yellowish tint almost negligible. When I opened the cap, smell of the lotion was very surprising, it is the most intense orange and citrusy aroma, much much intense than The Body Shop Satsuma Range. When applied all over body it felt like you are applying a paste of Glucon D orange flavor all over yourself. But yeah, this yummiest of orange aroma does not last through the whole day. After an hour or so, the smell is gone completely. But what stays behind is its amazing moisturising quality. I spend most of my time in Office chilled dry AC and I need something which would not dry up my skin. And this fits are bill perfectly. The lotion gets absorbed very easily without any sticky or greasy feeling, and I am saying this while using it during the summer. Someone who loves oranges and fruity aromas, they would surely love this.

Price : Rs 635 /- for 200 ml.
Availability : Online

The Goodies:
  • Impressive moistursing quality
  • No SLS, Paraben, synthetic colors and frangrance
  • Gets easily absorbed without any sticky feeling, can be used during the summer, if you are staying in AC this would give enough moisturization.
  • No harsh chemicals
The Baddies:
  • Availability is an issue, available is an issue. After a long time I found this online and made no qualms in buying it.
  • I wish the yummy orange fragrance stayed longer. The TBS Satsuma range's staying power is better than this.
  • I find it to be a bit pricey.
Hence: I like this lotion, but I would buy a different range from the Organic Surge Range to try out a different smell. If I am not so lucky then I would definitely re-purchase this.

Have you tried any other body lotion from Organic Surge, how did it fair. Tell me about it, mail me at
