Michael Todd True Organics: First Impressions


Honey & Oat Cleanser

I’m not sure why, but having watched so many YouTube videos reviewing this cleanser, I always pictured it as a creamy white cleanser. Just a heads up, it’s not. It looks like honey! Once I took a second to take that in (small things, hey) I immediately noticed the beautiful texture. It feels incredible; you only need a tiny amount of product to cover your face. It removes all my make-up and is perfect for removing eye makeup as it’s sulfate free and doesn’t sting your eyes (something I have discovered the hard way with other cleansers)! This cleanser has gently nursed my skin back to health and I haven’t looked back. 10/10.

Tropical Fruit Scrub

My very first impression of this product was that it smells like Starburst lollies. Like, exactly as if you were rubbing Starburst lollies on your face. This was a little off-putting at first, but I soon got used to it and…wow. My skin normally doesn’t react well to scrubs, it’s always made me break out and so I’ve learnt to steer clear. Not this one! It exfoliates enough to get the job done, but gentle enough so as to not harm the delicate facial skin. It leaves my skin feeling beautifully soft and clean without the drying effect I’ve experienced with other exfoliating scrubs. This product gets a big thumbs up from me!

Blue Green Algae Toner

Toning is not my strong suit. I used to do it when I was a teenager religiously, but was convinced it wasn’t doing anything and somewhere along the line I stopped. I’ve known for a while now that I should start toning again, but kind of put it off, until I bought this! Admittedly, I do sometimes forget to use it, but I’m always disappointed when I do because it feels so beautiful. The scent is relaxing (it smells so familiar but I just can’t put my finger on what it is!) and the product is so soothing and beautiful. My skin is left feeling supple and deeply cleansed. It’s also antibacterial and I am naming this product as the cure for my recently problem skin.


Right before my Michael Todd order arrived my skin was hectic; for some reason it had just decided to break out all over the place with no sign of going away. Within days of starting using these products my skin cleared up and looked better than it has in years! I get far too excited about cleansing my face now. These are definitely my new holy grail skincare products, and I’ve been raving about them to anyone who stops long enough for me to pop it into conversation I’ve even bought my mum a kit for her birthday! Shh, don’t tell her.

I’m keen to try out more of their products. What are your favourite Michael Todd products? What should I try next?
