Organic Surge goodies: Earth Week Giveaway #5

And the lucky recipient of the Organic Surge goodies is Christie who said...

Ooh, you had me at Bergamot - I love bergamot - so the tropical bergamot shower gel!

email me at talk at ecochick dot ca, Christie! Good luck next time, ecochicks!


Hey ecochicks!

Our final giveaway for this week is a set of gorgeous goodies from the United Kingdom's Organic Surge. These wonderful combinations of products are made with 99% naturally derived ingredients with certified organic essential oils. They leave out parabens, SLS, sulfates, synthetic perfume and plenty of other nasties, leaving in plant extracts and all kinds of other goodness. And I have a gift pack for you to try out! The pack includes:

Citrus mint shampoo. There are lots of minty shampoos on the market - they're wonderful because they have such a nice fresh feeling on the scalp! This one is less minty than some, so it's lighter and very, very nice.

Next, Tropical Bergamot shower gel is a fresh, pretty gel that leaves your skin clean and soft.

But my clear favourite out of the gift pack is the Lavender and Geranium hand lotion. I never would have thought to put lavender and geranium together as a scent combination - and it really, really works. The two scents compliment each other gorgeously, resulting in a wholly natural, lovely fragrance. And the cream is very nice too!

You want the gift pack? Just head on over to Organic Surge (it's the UK site but they have all of the products listed there) and tell me what new products sound good to you! Post back here by Friday, May 1 and make sure you leave me a way to contact you, and random.org may just say this gift pack is yours.

Organic Surge products are available in Canada at Shoppers Drug Mart.

It's been an awesome week here at ecochick, with all kinds of great giveaways and awesome visitors to the site. Welcome back all of you who've been here for a while, and welcome to everyone who just discovered the site this week - I hope you stick around! Don't forget to subscribe to the ecochick feed, and if you have any feedback for me you can comment or email me at talk at ecochick dot ca. Happy eco-living!

I'd love to try any of the Citrus Mint products, particularly the Shower Gel and Body lotion! These look like great products. I will keep an eye out for them at Shoppers!

Steve said...

Well you know I need that shampoo, only if it grows hair too!

The Lavender and Geranium Body Lotion looks quite interesting to me! But really, all the products seem worth a closer look. Thanks for bringing this line to our attention!

The Pure Extracts Gentle Cleanser sounds lovely - the whole Pure Extracts line sounds great, actually! I haven't seen their products at Shopper's, but I'll have a look for them.

There's no Shoppers Drug Mart in Quebec so the only way I could try it is it this giveaway...I'd like the
lavender and geranium lotion! always have dry hands since I had to wash them 10 times a day working in an hospital preparing sterile medication!

I am so in need of a new, non-toxic face cream for daily use. Love that they have that on their site.

chris gee said...

*sigh* is there anything geranium and lavender can't do?!

Lavender: soothing in smell, calming in colour

geranium: pretty, easy to grow and edible!

Hey, hate to burst your bubble but this product line SUCKS big time. It's a greenwasher. Full of crap that's actually pretty bad, but masking as a natural product. Not even certified. This company makes a pile of bull****, just thought you guys might like to know. Frankly, try reading the bottle and if you don't know what an ingredient is, it's time to learn something. Know what you're buying and don't waste money on fake organics like this - they're just jumping on the bandwagon, happy to take your money while really doing nothing good for anyone or the planet. Shameful company!

Just starting browsing your site last week. Love the bergamot shower gel - it really is like a tropic rainshower! I like when the company explains each ingredient that goes into their products - each one here is listed with its scientific name and then its source - most are natural.

Only a couple of questionable ingredients: phenoxyethanol and disodium edta (cosmetics database can verify all ingredients when ever you have questions). But yeah, who is certifying that it's organic?

Hard to avoid all chemicals unless you make everything yourself.

Great blog!
