From when I was first looking for a sun lotion that wouldn’t give N a rash, through to now having worked with Green People for a while, we’ve always found the products did exactly what they were meant to, and been suitable for our skin.
The latest launch are the Green People Limited Edition gift packs. I was sent the badger handcream pack. From the website I did imagine them to be bigger, but as you only need a little bit of handcream at a time (note to self, keep away from the OH who slathers the stuff on his rough farmer’s hands) it does last.
The cute gift pack opens outwards like a flower when undone, but easily goes back together if you want to keep it in the outer. Each of the woodland packs has a different animal. The badger and fox aren’t really good for me in the house, given I’m married to a farmer who hates both, but it’s safe for now. Each pack has different products in..
The hand creams are 2x 50ml tubes. The first is ho wood and red mandarian, the other lavender and rose geranium. Both are really subtle in aroma, but I (and my nose isn’t great) can pick up both scents. Being organic there’s no nasties in them either.
I have to admit I’m really slack about skincare and hand care. I think I’m lucky in that I’ve still got quite soft hands for someone approaching 40, but I have had a bit of dry skin recently from some strange ezcema thing that’s suddenly appeared post our camping trip in the summer. So this handcream’s really prompted me to start using it more regularly.
I mostly use it before bed, and even after only one application, the next morning after shower and several hand-washing occasions, my hands still felt really soft and not at all dry. I like that it goes on smoothly, isn’t greasy and soaks in quickly.
I think I’ll be taking one of them into work, because they should be great for immediately being able to get back to the keyboard without having to wait for the cream to soak in.
The packs support The Woodland Trust with 50p from each sale going to the charity. There’s 3 in the ladies range and a mens gift pack too.
If you’d like to try the limited edition gift packs or can think of the perfect Christmas recipient, you can buy them directly from Green People for around £19.95.
