Dr Organic Pomegranate Anti Ageing Cream

Dr Organic Pomegranate Face Cream Sugarpuffish Reviews

Last time I blogged about Dr Organic Laura of Laura Blogs Beauty (link) left me a comment telling me how much she loves the Manuka Honey face cream. A few weeks back Holland & Barrett had a Buy One Get One Half Price offer so I took advantage of the deal. I replaced my beloved Manuka face scrub and a little voice (probably Laura’s ha ha) told me to try out a face cream. 

Dr Organic cream is available in Aloe Vera, Pomegranate, Vitamin E, Manuka Honey, Royal Jelly and Otto Rose. Now I did not get to read the labels on all of them but I imagine they each cater towards different skin types and skin concerns. I love Manuka but it was not available so I picked Pomegranate.

I personally do not believe in Anti-Ageing products. I honestly think we should all embrace the wrinkles, it is part of life. The reason I say this is because the Dr Organic Pomegranate cream is marketed as Anti-Ageing. The packaging tells me this cream helps “reduce fine lines and wrinkles, promote cell regeneration, boost collagen stability, reduces age spot formation”. At the end of the day, if this cream does as it claims then I shall not grumble but I am sceptical. I will report back to you when I am 70 and let you know how my wrinkles are doing :)

Up until this point the face creams I rave about are from Tropic Pure Plant Skincare and Borealis Organics. This cream is on a par with these brands. Laura is right the Dr Organic cream is “hands down the best cream ever invented”. The consistency is perfect for me, somewhere between thick and thin. It sinks into my skin easily, leaves it soft, smooth and free of dry patches. My makeup sits nicely on top and it hydrates throughout the day. A little goes a long way and I use it morning and night. If you prefer a dedicated night cream Dr Organic do have some in the range. The fragrance is pleasant, not sweet but a hint of sharpness which I do not object to. Best of all this retails for £8.19 for a 50ml jar. A bargain price and if I am wrinkle free in 10 years time it will be money well spent. The cherry on top is that the Dr Organic range is organic and free from paraben, sls, artificial colours, harsh chemicals, fragrance and preservatives. Dr Organic is against animal testing and suitable for vegetarians and vegans. 

Overall, this is most definitely 100% going to be a repurchase item for me. Dr Organic is fast becoming a beloved brand and I will continue to work my way through the entire range. Anyone else tried products from Dr Organic?

  1. Oh nice. Well I used to always look at their stuff in Holland & Barett but came to the conclusion I don't like the ingredients. It might have been their hair care stuff though :) x

    1. That's fair enough if you are not happy with ingredients, its a personal decision to make, For me I think this is a good "free from" range & I like that it is available on the high street at a good price.

  2. Great review. I recently switched my deodorant to Dr Organic and I'm really impressed so I'd definitely consider using more from the range. I was thinking of trying their shower gels next :)

  5. This sounds fab and is a decently priced product! I've tried their manuka honey rescue cream & body butter (which I absolutely loved) but never tried the pomegranate range. You have definitely sold it to me though! I've also used the rose otto bath oil, not sure it gets rid of wrinkles as I literally lay in the bath but it was nice and relaxing! oxo

  7. I've tried the Rose Otto body lotion and was impressed for the price. I'll have to take a closer look at this next time I am in H&B as it sounds like a bargain.

    1. I have yet to try the body lotion, the whole range does seem to have a good price point, also H&B have a reward card now so I am managing to stock up on points

  8. I always see the Dr Organic range in Holland and Barrett need to actually get round to buying some - tried the Rose otto body lotion curtesy or latest in beauty and was very impressed :)

    1. I highly recommend, so far I have not been disappointed with the products, it's purse friendly. I think I need to try the lotion it seems many people like it :)

  9. I'm really loving the Argan oil shower gel and olive oil shampoo and conditioner. I've recently developed a bit of skin sensitivity and it seems to be anything with sodium lauyrl sulfate in the product that brings me out in tiny itchy blisters. I tried the dr organics range on a whim and I have to say I'm really impressed. Used shower gel 4 times and shampoo and conditioner twice and no reaction at all. Definitely getting more and going to try the rest of the range as well.

    1. SLS definitely dries out my skin so that's why I made the switch. It's good to hear you have found something you can use without reactions.

  10. This sounds so lovely and you have convinced me to give one of their face creams a go next time I need to purchase one! I've still got the rest of my Trilogy one to use up and then an Antipodes one to try so it's going to be quite some time but I'll add one of their face creams to my wish list so I don't forget!
