The Green People Review

Have you ever heard of Green People?

 I would like to start this post by introducing you. I have only become aware of this lovely company in the last week or so and they are the leading company in certified organic body care products, meaning there are no nasties such as manufactured chemicals. They have a very extensive range of natural products – shampoos, face creams, sun lotions and body washes, the list goes on and is always growing!

Green People is now one of the biggest names in organic beauty in the UK.

Leo and I have been sent some Green People products to try out. Leo has been sent some Organic Babies Rescue Balm and I have been treated to some Limited Edition Gold Shimmer Bronzer.

Since receiving these lovely products at the start of the week, Leo and I have been putting them to the test. What I particularly love about them is that they are natural. When it comes to Leo's skin I have noticed that it can be extremely sensitive, and we have now cut out products that contain anything less than natural ingredients after associating his eczema with his previous bath products.

The balm is not just for baby, it is for Mummy too. If you have dry skin or are currently breastfeeding, the organic Calendula and Vitamin E will help to soothe sore cracked nipples before and after breastfeeding.

The balm can be used all over due to the natural ingredients. It rescues the dry skin, soothes sore nipples and the perineum. The product is completely scent free and is made without Parabens, Lanolin, phthalates, artificial perfumes, petrochemicals and colourants.

This makes the product just as nature intended it.

I have been applying this to Leo's arms at regular intervals throughout the day and I am already seeing a improvement in his dry skin. The balm is so easy to apply and gets absorbed into the skin leaving no sticky residue as you get with some products.

Having a look over the Green People's website, I was really impressed with the information provided. They have products for people from all walks of life and even have products suitable for Vegetarian's and Vegan's. They have made it very easy to find out which products are suitable and which are not. For instance, Organic Babies - Rescue Balm is suitable for Vegetarian's but not for Vegan's due to the Beeswax content.

I really like the Rescue Balm and I love that it is so natural. I have no worry or little niggles about using this on Leo in the slightest. You can purchase this for £9.70 and can even earn points at the same time, and when you have enough points you can then buy more products! Now that is an incentive to buy!

Now we all know I love my make up... It put a big smile on my face when I received this beautiful bronzer, and just in time for the sunny weather too!

This bronzer has been launched especially for Summer 2012 and is brand new on the Green People's website. It arrives in a sophisticated Black box and is safely stored in a small plastic container, so you can take it with you on your travels and re-apply if and when you feel the need.

Compared to some other bronzer's I have used in the past, this bronzer is great. Instead of one block colour you have 3 gorgeous marbled colours to work with, and unlike anything else I have used, you can do more than just make your cheek bones look good. This multi-purpose bronzer can be used on your eye lids or even as a lip colour!

The bronzer leaves your skin glowing with a sun kissed sparkle. It really catches the sunlight on a warm sunny day!

The positives for the product and the company keep growing for me. Their products are not tested on animals, which I must admit is a important factor to me. I hate the thought of purchasing something that has been detrimental to a animal somewhere along the way.

This certified organic bronzer is made without Parabens, Propylene Glycol, Bismuth Oxychloride, Petrochemicals, Phthalates and Synthetic Colourants to bring you the purest bronzer possible.

The compact case is made out of 100% natural plastic and coloured with earth friendly natural colour and all the packaging used is recycable.

You can buy your own Limited Edition Bronzer for £22.00, 10% of this price is donated to charity.

It is very reassuring knowing that all the ingredients in Green People's products are just as nature intended. It is important to know exactly what you are using on your baby or even on your face. Obviously when it comes to Leo I am very vigilant with what I use, and as I adapt further to being a Mummy, I become more picky with each passing day when it comes to Leo's products. 

I really should adapt this same technique to the products I personally use. I need to take more of a interest in what I am actually putting on my face, and I know that I would much rather use the natural options where possible.

I highly recomend Green People and I look forward to trying out some more of their natural alternatives in the not so distant future.
