By now I should have my skin sussed, yet I don’t. I am in my thirties and I still get the big angry pimples of a teenager. It can be a bit embarrassing to be wandering around with, what looks like, the Channel Islands on your chin.
Your first response is to hide your face. However, touching your face is the last thing that you should do! Sometimes spots can be caused by not drinking enough water, yet I drink plenty of water. I am known as a real water guzzler. Therefore, I came to the conclusion that perhaps my skin care needed an overhaul. I was delighted when Green People offered to send me the latest products from their sensitive skin range.
I wanted to leave it a month before I did my review, so that I could give an honest appraisal of whether I felt that they helped my skin.
Calming Serum for Sensitive Skin 5oml – £17.50
I have used serums before but found that they clogged up my pores and my skin has been left feeling oily. However, I can say that this has not been the case with this serum. My skin is now looking far clearer. I also think it is looking firmer and that it has helped with lessening the appearance of fine wrinkles. According to Green People, “it delivers hydration to the deeper skin layers, helping to fight the wrinkles at their source.” It is also very soothing. It has reduced the redness of my angry spot. In fact, I have no spots at the moment (touch wood). I put the serum on at the end of a long day, after removing my make-up, and it feels like a nice treat for my skin. I then let it sink in before putting on some moisturiser.
A Light Day Cream for Sensitive Skin 5oml – £16.50
Again, I often struggle with moisturisers. The moisturiser I had been using was one that was reduced in the supermarket. I should have known better. It was far too heavy for my skin, took an age to rub in and then left my skin feeling greasy. This would then make applying make-up tricky. Make-up sliding off your face is never a good look 😉 . The new Light Day Cream from Green People was a very different story. It felt light-weight and my skin could breathe again. The lovely peeps at Green People say that this is the perfect cream for the spring and summer months. I would have to agree. This was ideal for me.
I have been very happy with both of these products as I have noticed a real change in my skin. Make-up is now going on easier (although I am happy to wear no make-up as my skin is looking so much better). At the moment, my skin is looking very healthy and blemish free, fingers crossed it continues.
These products are effective, luxurious skin care without the expensive price tag!
