Today I’m so excited to be sharing with you a cruelty free clean brand from Europe that is now being sold in American CVS stores nationwide. I have been trying out Organic Doctor for the past month to review and share what I love from the brand. Organic Doctor has been so kind to send me these products to try out however my opinions are strictly my own and this post is not financially compensated. In America we have a bit of a FDA clearance crisis where a lot of brands especially in the drugstore are pumped with harmful filler chemicals and fragrances that are often banned in other first world countries. Did you know there are little to know guidelines when it comes to labeling a product “Clean” or “Natural” in the US? With the FDA crisis in the US I always look extremely closely at the ingredient decks especially in brands that claim to be “organic” or “Green”. Bonus for the fact that Organic Aloe Vera is used as the lead ingredient due to its extensive beneficial skin care properties versus water which is commonly used in most beauty products both drug store and high end. Because the products by Organic Doctor are imported from Europe it was no surprise these formulas pass my examination. Most of these products are vegan and all are cruelty free.
“Organic Doctor products utilize only the finest organic materials wherever possible. Each product contains a minimum of 70% organic ingredients. Sourced from around the world, every single active ingredient conforms to our strict quality guidelines.”Organic Skincare Doctor Tea Tree Face Wash is a gentle yet deeply penetrating facial cleanser, formulated with a proprietary blend of bioactive and naturally inspired ingredients including pure Tea Tree Oil, Mandarin Oil, Lemon Oil and Witch Hazel. I absolutely love this cleanser because it leaves the skin feeling cooled. Use it at night before bed to wake up with a bright even skin complexion. This bad boy is also kick butt at removing makeup and excess buildup. Bonus points for Ph Balancing properties.
When it comes to day time serums I love anything that gives me a healthy glow. Because the Organic Doctor Virgin Coconut Oil Hydrating Radiance Elixir has mica and coconut oil in the ingredient deck this lightweight serum leaves behind the most beautiful glow that radiates all day. Use in the morning as your daily moisturizer or serum and skip at night. I did notice this Elixir does have a bit of light grit in the texture which was the only thing that I didn’t care for but as you can see I still showed lots of love to this product.
The benefits of snail secretion have long been trusted in the Korean beauty market due to its powerful anti aging abilities. Organic Doctor Snail Gel is a moisturizing, soothing, healthy-aging gel which harnesses the remarkable cosmetic benefits of Helix Aspersa Muller, a unique substance the snail produces to nourish its own skin. Combined with organic Aloe Vera and a proprietary blend of bioactive ingredients, it effectively soothes and hydrates the skin. For those that may be weirded out by snail products….no it doesn’t smell (it actually smells like citrus due to the lemongrass)….no its not slimy. This gel is light and feels cooling on the skin, use it at night to wake up with a boost of hydration. Pair this Snail Gel back to the Organic Doctor Snail Gel serum for ultimate anti aging hydrating pairing.
Overall I love that CVS is now carrying Organic Doctor nationwide so that us consumers can have access to natural organic formulas that are actually clean and reap the same benefits of high end formulas that feature similar ingredients.
