Organic Surge Lavender Meadow Hand Wash and Hand Cream

When it comes to everyday essentials, I am always happy to try new scents and brands. I used to be obsessed with Baylis and Harding hand washes and lotions, but I switched to natural products a long time ago and I very rarely go back to my old favourites.

If you think about it, hand washes are probably the most used products, aren't they? I use a hand wash a couple of times a day and usually follow with a hand cream. An ordinary hand wash contains a lot of SLS and it really dries out my skin, so it became a massive No, No for me.

 Organic Surge doesn't use SLS in their products, so the Lavender Meadow Hand Wash* is a better option (it contains SCS though, which is a milder foaming agent). The hand wash doesn't strip my skin of moisture and smells really lovely, so I became a big fan immediately. The price tag of the Lavender Meadow Hand Wash is a very purse friendly £4.09 and it will be a definite repurchase for me. Key ingredients include Vitamin E to heal, natural glycerine to soften and moisturise, lavender essential oil to soothe and calm skin irritation and geranium essential oil to improve skin's complexion. Most importantly, the hand wash does  great job at cleaning my hands, without causing any irritation. 

The Lavender Meadow Hand and Nail Cream* (£4.09) is another lovely product from Organic Surge and is everything I look for in a hand cream. It is very hydrating, quickly absorbing and smells really fresh. Perfect! It provides long lasting moisture, thanks to shea and cocoa butters and natural glycerine. It also contains soothing aloe vera, essential oils of lavender flower oil, geranium flower oil and geranium leaf. The creamy texture of the product feels very luxurious, but doesn't leave a residue. I would definitely recommend it, if you are looking for a natural hand cream on budget.

Both products are available from for £4.09 each.


  1. I may be being dim here but what's SLS? I'm getting slightly worried about my cheapy handwashes :s

    1. SLS is Sodium Layryl Sulfate or Sodium Laureth Sulfate and it is used in most product that foam - hand washes, shampoos, shower gels, scrubs, bubble bath, even in baby products. It is linked to cancer and irritates skin, but the government seems to think that it is ok to let the companies use it. If you google it, you will be able to find out more.

  2. mmm i love the smell of lavender!
