This month is Organic September – a month to celebrate all things organic. Not too long ago I received an e-mail from Green People asking if I’d be interested in trying out some of their certified organic products for Organic September, and I decided to try out their “Organic Skin Polish Pack” which comes equipped with a vitamin face mask and a fruit scrub exfoliator.
I’ve never actually previously given any thought to organic beauty products, I tend to just buy what looks good without putting much thought into the chemicals I’m putting on my skin. But actuallyyyy, it can take as little as 26 seconds for these different chemicals to enter our bloodstream. According to Share Care, Organic beauty products tend to contain fewer toxins, are not tested on animals and are healthier for the environment.
On to the products – I actually tried out the scrub more than I did the face mask, as the first time I used the face mask I realised that it was for dry skin, and having oily skin myself, I decided not to take the risk. However the face mask, from what I could tell during that first use, really wasn’t too bad. The smell was not my cup of tea, but once mixed with water it actually weirdly started to smell a little better. The mask was nice and easy to apply, however a downside to it is the fact that it didn’t dry on my face like a usual face mask would.
As for the scrub, I have absolutely loveddd this product and have taken it with me back to uni as I intend to use all of it. Honestly, since I’ve been using this scrub, my face has been spot free. I was unsure about whether to put my skin improvements down to this product at first, but the more I use it and the more spot free I remain, the more I attribute it to this product. This product smelt a bit strange at first to me as well, also after a while it becomes quite hard to squeeze the product out – but apart from those two small hiccups, absolutely amazing.
As you can tell I’ve been quite impressed with these Green People products! Definitely check them out – they have soo much on offer on their website.
Currently blogging from inside my uni as we are yet to have internet and wifi installed at our new flat. Definitely going to be hard to cope these next few days haha.
Don’t forget to enter my John Frieda giveaway! Ends on October 9th.
I love organic products so feel sad I have not tried anything from Green People yet!! Thanks for sharing and I will definitely be trying these soon xx
