It’s time for a beauty update! When springtime begins each year, I like to refresh my skincare to match my skin’s needs. I love to get outdoors and enjoy the warmer weather… but my dry, sensitive skin? Not so much. Naturally, I choose products that prioritise sustainable and science-backed ingredients, and its Green People’s Heritage Beauty Trio* that I’ve recently switched to! Here’s my review of these three organic beauty products and how I’ve been getting on…
What’s In The Box?
I’ve been a fan of Green People and their organic beauty products for a number of years now, so it was lovely to discover the brand is celebrating their 25th Anniversary this year! With the celebrations comes the launch of their Heritage Beauty Trio*, a special gift set combining three of their best-selling products:
- Gentle Cleanse & Make-Up Remover
- Vita Min Fix 24-Hour Cream
- Fruitful Nights Night Cream
All three items are a brilliant introduction to Green People and their balanced skincare, which is certified organic, cruelty-free, and vegan. The set also comes in a specially presented gift box, making it a wonderful present, either to yourself or someone else!
One of my annual Green People repurchases is their sunscreen* and after-sun*, which provides UVA and UVB protection and is reef-safe, so this set was perfectly-timed new discovery. Promising to restore balance, softness, and radiance, I promptly started using all three a few weeks ago. Here’s how I’ve found them…
1. Gentle Cleanse & Make-Up Remover
Cream cleansers are my favourite way to wash my face, so Green People’s Gentle Cleanse & Make-Up Remover* was a welcome addition to my skincare routine. I’ve been using this organic cream cleanser in both the morning and evening to wash my skin, as well as to remove make-up.
Usually I find gentle, alcohol-free cleansers aren’t all that effective at removing make-up, but this product strikes a great balance for both. When I’m wearing long-lasting cosmetics like mascara or eyeliner, I like to blot a little of this cleanser onto a reusable pad and swipe the make-up off first. Once swiped, I’ll then gently rub the cleanser over my face and wash everything away.
And, it does exactly as it says: it hydrates, balances and purifies. Since I began using it, I’ve found my skin is left feeling soft and clean without any tightness. Followed up with the 24-Hour Cream or Night Cream, I’m golden.
2. Vita Min Fix 24-Hour Cream
In the mornings, I’ve been using Green People’s Vita Min Fix 24-Hour Cream* once I’ve cleansed. It’s a nourishing cream that can be applied day or night, but feels most wearable as a day cream for me.
This 24-Hour cream is hydrating but is easy to smooth across my skin and absorbs quickly, which is a must-have when it comes to my often rushed morning routine! I like to press it between my fingers before patting across my cheeks, forehead, chin and neck, and then follow it up with SPF.
Over the course of a day, I find my skin stays soft and supple without any tautness, which I can sometimes experience with less hydrating creams.
3. Fruitful Nights Night Cream
Finally, let’s talk about my favourite product out of the three: Green People’s Fruitful Nights Night Cream*. I love a good night cream – it’s a luxurious way to end a day, pampering my skin with an ultra-hydrating cream that feels as good as it smells. All three of the Heritage Trio products have a similar light, floral scent that I’ve come to enjoy across my skincare routine.
For the night cream, the aim is to minimise fine lines and improve skin texture. I can’t testify to these, but I can say it leaves my skin feeling really well hydrated without clogging my pores, and is a wonderfully balanced night cream for milder nights.
The Heritage Beauty Trio: A Winning Combination
Overall, I have to say I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how well these three products have done for my typically fussy skin. As with all my beauty products, I insist on them being cruelty-free, but Green People goes above and beyond this, with vegan formulas, certified organic ingredients, and products suitable for all genders, skin types and ages. The Heritage Beauty Trio* is a brilliant introduction to the brand for anyone who’s yet to try them, and for repeat customers, it’s a lovely way to add three hero products into your skin routine.
Plus, the 50ml size of each of these means they’ll fit perfectly into my travel bag when I go on holiday later this year. It’s a win win!
