**The Organation Customized Facial Cream was sent to me for review purposes. All opinions are my own.
I thought it would be appropriate to start this post telling you a bit about my skin. I have dry skin, with some minor rosacea in my cheek area that mostly flares up in hot environments and when I’ve worked out (which happens VERY rarely), and some minimum texture. In my eyes, the pores on the sides of my nose are a bit larger than I would like, but I don’t think they can be considered enlarged pores. These are just some of the things I replied to when taking the Organation Customized Facial survey. Based on these observations, a series of ingredients was recommended to me and a custom facial cream was born. This was my experience using a Organation’s Customized Facial Cream.
Ingredients: Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Pomegranate seed Oil, Grape seed Oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Aloe Vera Powder, Hemp seed Oil, Argan Oil, Shea Butter, Lemongrass essential oil, Peony extract, Seaweed extract, Hyaluronic acid from yeast, Phytomulse Almond, Vitamin E, Leucidal Complete, Xantan Gum.
What I Love About Organation
Prior to being reached out by Organation on Instagram, I had never heard about them or their products. It is a company based out of Portland, OR, the state I currently reside in, so this was my first experience engaging with brands in my area. I had also never done anything like a “custom facial cream,” but I loved the idea of it. The survey seemed pretty simple, and I enjoyed that you were given the choice between ingredients that you wanted to have in your cream depending on your needs. In addition, you can decide what the label of your cream will say which I thought was a very nice touch.
When I received my customized facial cream, my first impression was how creamy and whipped it looked. I just wanted to get my hand in there and feel the texture. Just from looking at it, I could immediately tell it was going to be really moisturizing which is exactly what my skin craves.
My formula is definitely very hydrating and soothing. It leaves my skin feeling plump and hydrated. It also leaves my skin looking very glowy which I was not expecting. The glow is also a very healthy-looking glow as there isn’t any type of glitter or anything like that.
What I Don’t Like About Organation
It is hard to review and recommend a product that is going to be different on everyone. Just because my cream worked out for me, doesn’t mean that the formula made for you will work for you. While some of their formulas are available in select stores in Portland, there also isn’t a way for you to test/sample the product before purchasing. The cost of the cream is $50 and that’s a considerable expense when you’re going in blind.
In addition, there really isn’t a way to see your survey responses after you’ve completed it. For example, if you wanted to request the exact same formula again after finishing up your cream, you would need to complete the survey in the same way as you did before. I wish they would send you an email with all the options you selected on the survey that you could reference in the future.
Last thing, there was some lack of communication after I completed my Organation Customized Facial Cream order. While this was gifted to me, I was given a coupon to use on the site so I followed the same steps as any other consumer. After submitting my order, I received my order confirmation, but never received shipping information. Personally, I like knowing when to expect things so this was important to me. I did let the brand know, but I don’t know if things have changed since then.
Overall, my experience with the Organation Customized Facial Cream was a good one. I love the quality of the cream and how it makes my dry skin feel. Despite the minor bumps in the ordering process, I think if the product appeals to you, you should definitely give them a chance! Their products are full of good ingredients and will make your skin feel amazing.
