[Ad] Green People Nordic Roots Collection: Review
Today I’ll be reviewing a couple of products from Green People’s newest collection, beautifully titled ‘Nordic Roots’. I have a weird obsession with nordic countries. So, when I heard this collection was being released, I knew it’d be right up my street. This collection contains sustainably sourced Nordic plant extracts (hence the name), and it’s inspired by the Scandinavian love of purity, simplicity, and functionality.
I was very kindly sent the Hyaluronic Booster serum and the Marine Facial Oil to try out and review. Naturally, I ended up choosing the two most expensive products in the collection. (What can I say, I’m my mother’s daughter). I’ve used these products a few times so far and will update this review if my thoughts change over the next few months.
I am a firm believer that you cannot go wrong with hyaluronic acid. We all know that hyaluronic acid holds up to 10x its weight in water, which is what makes it so great for thirsty skin. The main ingredients in this particular serum are Hyaluronic Acid (delivers deep moisturisation, reducing the appearance of fine lines), Sugar Beets (contain richly hydrating amino acids to moisturise and protect the skin), and Hop Flowers (target hyperpigmentation and age spots to enhance skin tone). I, like many others I’m sure, am not getting any younger. And now that I’ve hit 29&12months, I LOVE the sound of all the anti-ageing benefits this offers. That was a big part of why I chose this particular product.
To use, just apply a few drops to thirsty skin as needed, or use AM and PM after cleansing. I can’t afford to repurchase this as soon as it runs out, so I think I’m going to opt to use it whenever I feel my skin needs it. Waste not want not!
Even after the very first application, my skin immediately felt so much more plump and hydrated. It calmed some of my redness, and my skin looked happy and healthy. It feels like a gorgeous milky drink for your skin. A little goes a really long way so I think it will last me a fairly long time. And it’s probably the most hydrating product I’ve used from Green People. Overall I really really love this serum and I would definitely repurchase and recommend to others.
This facial oil contains Atlantic Seaweed (boosts collagen and firms the skin), Oat Kernel Oil (rich in vitamin E and other antioxidants to protect against free radicals, and Hop Flowers (controls pigmentation for a more even skin tone) among many other gorgeous ingredients. Both of these products come in gorgeous glass bottles which look great on the bathroom shelf!
To use, you just warm 2-3 drops in between your palms then gently press onto the skin. I usually use this after I use the hyaluronic serum.
Immediately after using, the skin feels so lovely – mega hydrated but not oily at all. You can feel the plumping and firming effects straight away. The application method is also really lovely – having your warm hands pressed to your face feels a bit like having a facial. And it gives your hands a good moisturise too!
Overall I absolutely adore both of these products. They’ve clearly invested so much time and effort into getting this collection right, and it’s obviously paid off. I’d love to try the other two products in the Nordic Roots collection too! Both of these products are also cruelty-free, vegan, certified organic, and don’t contain any nasty chemicals.
The only downside for me is the cost. They are some of Green People’s more expensive products, and I’m in no way criticising them for being overpriced because they aren’t. They carry the bigger price tag because they contain so many good quality ingredients and packaging, which undoubtedly aren’t cheap. If you have the budget to afford these products, I really really do recommend them as I think they are wonderful. But if you don’t have the budget – put them on your Christmas list!
