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.

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.
