I was recently gifted some lovely skincare from The Green People. I always enjoy using their products as they never irritate my highly sensitive skin. I have to be so careful with what I use as many products cause my skin to tighten and break out. Over the recent hot weeks we’ve had in the UK, my skin has really suffered from being very dry. If you have naturally oily skin, heat will often make it more oily. However, if you have very dry skin, the heat can make the skin dehydrate and become even drier. Not only is it so important to hydrate from the inside (drinking lots of water), it’s also important to hydrate your skin from the outside too. I was sent three products – the Vitamin Fix Day 24 hour cream, the Fruitful Nights night cream and my all time favourite, Fruit Scrub Exfoliator. All of these products are fab for dry skin. The creams are great for combating signs of ageing too – bonus! I think every mum wants a good anti-ageing cream – having kids ages you beyond belief! I’m only 24, but sometimes i think I look A LOT older – especially after a sleepless night.
I really enjoyed trying these products – especially the night cream. I haven’t used a night cream in a long time, but it’s lovely to wake up with soft skin. There’s something very relaxing and indulgent about applying a night cream – it’s helped me to take more time to relax and develop my own evening ritual. The application of both creams is delightful – as expected. They’ve both got a very creamy, but not overly-rich texture – and feels as though it really hydrates and nourishes my poor dry skin! I’ve found the day cream provides a good base for my make up too. I do add just a drop of jojoba oil to whatever moisturiser I use, as my skin is extremely dry. However, if you don’t have this problem you won’t need any oil.
The fruit scrub is something I’ve mentioned in previous blog posts – it’s definitely a skincare must-have. No matter what your skin type, I highly recommend this scrub. Many scrubs are too harsh and feel very gritty on your face, even after washing. However, this fruity scrub contains a very fine powder which gently buffs away dead skin – it doesn’t feel like it’s scratching your face. It leaves your face feeling as soft as a baby’s bum! I love the smell too – very fresh and uplifting. I often get bad breakouts and I find this scrub doesn’t aggravate my spots, in fact – it helps to reduce the redness.
Not only are all of The Green People’s products organic & utterly delightful to use, they contain ethically sourced ingredients, no harsh chemicals and they don’t test their products on animals. I have been a fan of The Green People for many years and I’m sure you will love their products too. Have a look here to browse their site. They also have some lovely gifts if you’re looking for a treat for a loved one!
