Did you know that your skin absorbs all products applied, within 60 seconds, directly into your blood stream? So if that is not enough to ensure you are using only the safest products, then I don’t know what is.
Our 21st century society has created a world where we believe strong fragrant smells are the way forward. From perfumes, to deodorants, creams and oils, but do you really know what ingredients these contain and what you are putting into your body?
For several years, I used various high-end, high-street brands to cleanse, tone, clean and hydrate my skin, until I became allergic to ALL OF IT. Pollution, stress and over-use, caused my skin to repel these products and I eventually ended up on medical steroids, in the hope to clear rashes and painful abrasions on my skin.
With a wedding on the horizon for me, I need to ensure my skin is clean, fresh but most importantly, free-from any nasty rashes, breakouts, eczema etc. I now have a few trusted brands that I use on a daily basis, to keep my skin clean, clear and healthy and I wanted to share with you, why I love them.
Green People Organic Lifestyle are an incredible natural and organic skin care brand that was developed by a mother, to help her young daughter that suffered with multiple skin allergies and eczema.
Every holiday (praying that at least one happens this year), you will see my sun cream stash will be overflowing with all of Green Peoples sun care products.
A few months ago, knowing my love for natural ingredients, the team at Green People very kindly sent me a bundle of their scent-free products. I have been using these products every day since and here are my thoughts.
Scent Free Bath/Shower Gel
By far the best shower gel I have ever used. It is number 1 for sensitive skin, with hundreds of 5 star reviews on their website. It is a non-irritating, organic formula, rich in antioxidants such as aloe vera and marshmallow, to leave the skin clean, fresh and totally rash-free.
I have had zero issues with my skin whilst using this product (no allergies or eczema) and I can categorically say that my skin has been left totally clean with NO unwanted smells, especially in the armpit area.
I have linked all of these products below, with direct links to the website should you wish to browse further.
Everyday Hand Care Set
Given how often we should be washing our hands (regardless of global pandemics), although extremely important for safety reason, this can leave your skin dry and dehydrated. In addition to this, if like me you have sensitive skin, then any use of strong alcoholic gels and hand washes are going to cause serious damage overtime, so it is important to find something that is effective, whilst remaining gentle on the skin.
This is a beautiful scent-free set, ultra-gentle, that can be used regularly. I was sent this set at the start of lockdown and considering I have used the hand-wash at least once a day, I am happy to report, this 300ML bottle is still going strong.
We have actually used lockdown as an opportunity to finally decorate our bathroom and whilst the work was underway, I moved the hand-wash to our downstairs toilet, so I could continue using daily.
The set also comes with a fragrance-free hand cream, packed full of Omega-3&6 fatty acids to maintain healthy and clean hands for sensitive skin.
Again, I have not experienced any skin reactions to these products whilst using and I have been totally converted. I have always been a little OCD when it comes to washing my hands anyway, so I have continued this level of cleanliness during current times. The hand-wash has been extremely successful in keeping my hands clean and soft, with the cream adding back lost moisture and hydration from excessive washing.
Scent Free Deodorant
Although Prince Andrew seems to have some apparent non-sweat power, sweating is a totally natural, normal and an ESSENTIAL thing for our bodies to do. In addition, deodorants do not stop the body from sweating, they simply give a slightly fragranced smell to the perspiration.
Green People have developed an incredible roll-on deodorant for sensitive skin, free from irritating alcohol and pore-clogging ingredients. Although this product is scent-free, it leaves your skin gentle, smooth with a neutral fresh feeling and NO nasty smells, even after hours of wear.
I have spent years searching for an effective deodorant that does not cause irritation to my skin and Green People have helped me finally find it! I use this products every single day, after washing with the shower gel mentioned above and my skin has remained fresh and eczema free.
Although these products were gifted to me, they now make up my day-to-day skin care routine and I have no intention of switching them out for something different any time soon. If you suffer with sensitive skin then please please give these products a try because you will not be disappointed.
