Organic Surge Kiss and Make-Up Cleansing Wipes (review)

Organic Surge is one of my preferred natural brands because while their products are affordable, they're also effective and these face cleansing wipes are no exception. They do everything you could want of a wipe; read more below to find out where they excel and how I'd improve them further.

Organic Surge Kiss and Make-Up Cleansing Wipes

These wipes are free of ingredients that could cause concern, so they are suitable for sensitive skin types as well as everything from dry to normal to oily faces. They're kind to eyes, too. What I really love is the fact they're made from 100% woven viscose, which is completely biodegradable and compostable!

Sodium lauryl/laureth sulphate, mineral oils, synthetic perfume, artificial colourants, parabens and propylene glycol are not the only things missing from these wipes. Organic Surge operates one of the strictest anti-animal testing policies in the beauty world, adhering to strict fixed cut-off dates. Brilliant. Why can't everyone do that?

But back to the wipes; they're not especially big, but they're strong and easy to grip. They struggled with removing long-lasting make-up – but then most cleansing wipes do – but other than that they cleaned daily grime and grease off my face without much effort, leaving me looking cleaner and feeling fresher. There was not a sting or tinge to be had, either.

I disagree with Organic Surge's claim that these wipes 'rehydrate' skin or have moisturising properties. They may not be drying, but they can never take the place of regular moisturiser, even on normal to oily skin like mine. But I don't think that's a big deal, in terms of downsides, this is a minuscule one.

So... excellent all round, pretty much. After a run of merely average facial wipes, these have restored my faith in time-saving cleansing. Organic Surge have shown that effective cleansing wipes can work brilliantly while still being kind to animals, the environment and to you. Other companies should take note.

Very effective cleansing
