Speed Review: Organic Blue Wake Up Mandarin & Ginger Shower Gel

We don't really know the long term implications of choosing organic or non-organic beauty options, however, there's one area where I've experienced noticable benefits by choosing organic even in a short space of time so I felt this would be a suitable conclusion to Skin Deep's Project Organic. That area is shower gels and by swapping from SLS laden versions to natural and organic options, the condition of my skin has vastly improved especially when it comes to dryness and patches of eczema.
So, on with the final review of Project Organic, which looks at Organic Blue's Wake Up Mandarin & Ginger Shower Gel. I'm a big fan of aromatherapy shower gels and especially look out for energising and uplifting benefits at this time of year. This appealed on the basis that it comprises invigorating mandarin and stimulating ginger.
This is the first product I've tried from Organic Blue, a British brand inspired by global influences which creates products which maximuse the use of certified organic ingredients. The products incorporate aromatherapy to benefit mind as well as body. Dannii Minogue is a fan.

On first impressions, I didn't really like the blue packaging as it seemed rather early 1990s but considering the name, I actually think it works.
I was really impressed with the product itself, particularly the texture of the shower gel. Despite being 100% organic, Organic Blue Wake Up Mandarin & Ginger Shower Gel successfully recreates the formula of a traditional shower gel- other natural shower gels I've tried previously have tended to be quite liquid- so I'd say this is a good option for first time users of natural shower gel. The scent itself wasn't particularly to my personal taste as I found it very heavy on the citrus but it didn't linger on my skin afterwards so I could happily overlook this.
At £3.99 for 250ml, Organic Blue Wake Up Mandarin & Ginger Shower Gel represents fantastic value for money so why not give it a go?

I hope you've found Skin Deep's Project Organic useful. I'd love to hear any comments you have and your experiences if you've decided to switch to organic.
