*Contains gifted items in exchange for an honest review*
I’m obsessed with discovering new skincare products, especially from brands that I have never heard of before. So when Green People asked if I wanted to review a couple of their products I couldn’t say no! Green People specialise in natural and organic beauty products, with a huge range of skincare, haircare, bodycare, makeup, the list could go on!
The story behind the brand is so wholesome and loving. When the founder, Charlotte Vøhtz’s young daughter started battling skin conditions such as eczema and skin allergies, she started her quest to creating organic skincare. Charlotte made her own organic creams due to the lack of sensitive skin products on the market. Then in 1997 Green People was born! Today, Green People has developed into a trusted family run brand, with a huge variety of products which cater for all skin types.
Lets get down to the nitty gritty and talk about the products! I have been using these skincare goodies for quite a while now, possibly over a month. I’ve developed a full opinion on them, which I cannot wait to share with you!
Nordic Roots Apple Complex Moisturiser
Described as “A deeply hydrating face cream to restore, protect and balance”, this moisturiser is filled with Juicy Apple Cellular Water, helping to improve the skins elasticity. A scent free formula, perfect for those of us with sensitive skin, it is infused with a number of plant-based emollients to help restore hydration.
“Hydrating” can be a very scary word if you have oily skin, but stripping the skin of its natural oils by using oil free/mattifying creams can actually make your skin even more oily. The Nordic Roots Mosituriser works amazingly well on oily skin, although hyrdrating, it has a non-greasy formula, so can easily be applied in the AM underneath makeup. Do you suffer with breakouts? Fear not, this mosituriser contains 99.8% natural ingredients with 21.8% sourced from organic farming, so you won’t need to worry about it irritating your skin. Overall, this is the perfect mosituriser for sensitive skin. It is nourishing and soothing without leaving a horrible greasy cast to the skin, I am thoroughly enjoying using it and cannot recommend this enough.
Nordic Roots Hyaluronic Booster Serum
You will have more than likely heard of Hyaluronic Acid, and if you haven’t, you’ve certainly been living under a rock. Incorporating acids into skincare routines has become a massive hit this past year, and I’m hear for it! The Nordic Roots Hyaluronic Booster Serum, is not like any other Hyaluronic Acid I have tried before. It is milky in colour and isn’t thick or sticky, it has a lovely thin consistency and doesn’t leave me wanting to wash my hands straight after application.
Products containing Hyaluronic Acid are known for leaving the skin dewy and glowy, but for my fellow oily skin people, it certainly won’t make your skin any oilier. I like to apply this as the second step to my morning skincare routine, before moisturiser, which gives me healthy looking skin instantly. This serum contains Hop Flowers to target hyperpigmentation and dark spots and is also scent and cruelty free. Overall, I’m obsessed with how my skin looks and feels when using this product, I can actually notice the difference in my apperance when I don’t apply it!
All in all, I am so happy with both of these products, and will continue to use them as part of my morning and evening skincare routines. Green People have a range of natural skincare products, which can be filtered to meet your skins specific needs on their website. Have you tried any Green People products before? Or are they a new discovery?
