Now that autumn has arrived and the air is turning more crisp, a good skincare routine is essential. The cooler temperature can really dry out your skin. I have naturally dry and sensitive skin anyway, so this time of year is a nightmare for me! On the topic of sensitive skin, I’m very particular about what I use with regards to fragranced skincare. Perfumes/artificial fragrances are notorious for causing problems for people with sensitive skin.
I was recently sent some beautiful organic skincare products from The Green People. These products are from their Christmas gift range. The natural scents from this range are to die for! Plus, they didn’t react with my sensitive skin – bonus! I also love the bold packaging in this range. The metallic accents are striking – perfect for an eye-catching Christmas gift. This range draws inspiration from nature, which is clear from the plant imagery on the boxes. It’s cleverly connected to their collaboration with UK charity, Plant Life. For every gift that is sold from this range, a donation will be made to Plant Life.
The first item I tested out was the Spice & Root hand cream. This was my favourite item! It’s not very often that I find natural fragrances that I really fall in love with. However, I have with this! For me, this hand cream took me back to my childhood. It reminded me of cosy autumn evenings and the festive smell of my mums mulled wine. It’s also very easy to apply, it’s very smooth and doesn’t leave you with yukky sticky hands. I love how silky soft my skin feels after using this product. Hand cream is a must-have for the colder seasons and this one is fab if you have sensitive skin.
The Forest & Fruit gift is also a wonderful festive treat for the skin! It includes a shower gel and body lotion. It’s great to moisturise your whole body at this time of year, it prevents those irritating dry patches which can get flaky and itchy. The scent of these is quite different to the Spice & Root hand cream. It’s much fresher – more of an uplifting scent. The citrus aroma is perfect for giving you a gentle boost in the morning, ready for the day ahead. As with the hand cream, the body lotion leaves the skin soft, supple and well hydrated.

*I received these items for free, but as usual all opinions are my own. I only ever promote products that I would be happy to use myself.
