Green People Facial Oil and Rejuvenating Cleansing Balm

Until the company made contact a couple of months ago, I wasn’t really aware of Green People. They sent me a couple of bits to try out and I’ll say from the start that I fully intend to check out more things because the products are fabulous.

Green People Facial Oil and Rejuvenating Cleansing Balm

The Organic Rejuvenating Cleansing Balm is a truly beautiful product. It’s recommended that before you start you hold a hot flannel to your face to open up your pores. Then you apply a small amount of the balm to the skin, massage in and then remove with a hot cloth, then finish by closing your pores with a cold flannel.

The balm smells out of this world which you’d expect given the Organic Ylang Ylang, Neroli and Jasmine oils. There’s also Pomegranate and Rosehip oils for rejuvenation and elasticity.  All you need to know is this, all make up melts away and your skin is left super clean, it’s certified with the Soil Association and is Vegetarian. It contains no Parabens, Lanolin, ethyl alcohol, artificial perfumes, petrochemicals, phthalates and colourants. It leaves no oily residue on my skin, causes no clogging or spots and I love it! Unfortunately I can’t provide you with a price as it doesn’t seem to be on the website at the time of writing, I know it definitely was there so am assuming that it is temporarily out of stock and of course as this post was written a week before posting, if that situation changes I’ll edit this post.

The Anti Ageing Facial Oil (£16.95) is another beautiful product. It was a winner in the Natural Health Magazine Beauty Awards and I’m not surprised. You simply apply this after cleansing using your fingers. I tend to use this at bedtime only although there’s no reason for this as it doesn’t stay oily on your skin. Suitable for those with eczema and psoriasis, this gentle oil contains Jojoba, rosehip and rose geranium oils, is free of all nasties, is vegetarian and vegan. I’ve found that when I use this at bedtime, in the mornings my skin is soft and plump and lovely. This will be part of my routine for a long time I think! You only need a couple of drops also so it will last a good long time. An extremely reasonable price as well I think for such a fantastic product.

Both Products should be available from www.greenpeople.co.uk but at the time of writing, only the Facial Oil is available. You can buy the Cleansing Balm from other stockists if you have a Google though but I am optimistic it will be back on the Green People site. I think I’m going to buy the kids shampoos and conditioners next and perhaps one of the moisturisers to try out 🙂

    I can imagine that the oils smells amazing indeed! Loving that it doesnt contain any nasties too!

    I love cleansing oils, especially the fact that I can use them safely in my eye area, but since I started using one my skin turned pretty oily and I started to suffer from break outs. I’m not sure if it’s the oil or the temperature of the rooms I work in, or wrong moisturiser, but something definitely is wrong.

    They are lovely Worshipblues!

    Ladymoonlight, just a thought and sorry if I’m wrong, but could there be any chance you’re not removing it properly when cleansing? x

    Oh dear, every blog post I read that I like makes me want the product and this one is no different! It’s a good thing I’m too poor to buy more than I already do haha.

    Very well timed, Charlotte! I have the facial oil which I bought after winning a £10 voucher for their site – I haven’t got round to using it and was actually thinking of eBaying it as I have so many bottles and potions. But I shall crack it open tonight! 😀

    @ Charlie
    thanks for your reply!
    I suppose this might be the case. I’ve just read that the skincare routine when using a cleansing oil should involve following it with a foam wash ( though it doesn’t say so on my cleanser bottle). Very reasonable, but then I don’t see the point of using an oil cleanser if my foam wash works fine for me. But I really love the way the oil cleanser deals away with my eye make-up.

  9. Charlie says:

    I’ve not heard that you should follow with a foam wash? I purposely avoid foam washes as they strip my skin and the agents in them that make them foam don’t suit me, too harsh. I agree… no point in using both! x
