Review: Green People Scent Free Skincare for Sensitive Skin



Green People Scent Free Skincare for Sensitive Skin

Green People is a brand I have known and liked for a number of years. It is not a brand I use on a regular basis but it is one I recommend to readers especially those with sensitive skin. Green People products are not tested on animals and never contain: Sodium lauryl/laureth sulphate, parabens, lanolin, phthalates, propylene glycol, alcohol (ethyl alcohol, ethanol), harsh foaming agents, synthetic fragrances, irritating emulsifiers, PABA-sunscreen, petrochemicals, colourants, urea, DEA, TEA or PEG’S.

I was approached by Green People to take part in their April campaign which is focusing on Sensitive Skin. I received a kit from their Scent Free range which includes Cleanser, 24-Hour Cream and Eye cream. All three products have been a pleasure to use and I was already a fan of their eye cream because I think it is excellent value for money. As these products are scent free they do not contain essential oil which cuts down the chance of irritation. Each product has a netural fragrance from the ingredients in the formulation. There are some good ingredients in these products and I can tell they have been chosen with sensitive skin in minds. You will find shea butter, avocado, evening primrose, aloe vera, jojoba and squalane (from olive). The cleanser removes my makeup well and does not leave skin feeling tight or dry. I have found the moisturiser offers me enough hydration to keep dry patches away. The eye cream is soothing and creamy but without being too heavy. My one minor criticism is I like the uniformity of the packaging and it functions well but there have been a few bleary eyed mornings where I put moisturiser on my face when I actually wanted to cleanse. I did chuckle over my stupidity even more so when I kept repeating my mistake.

During April, Green People are offering 10% off the Scent Free range. If your skin is currently feeling sensitive or irritated this may offer a solution. If you like a fuss free skincare regime then I would also recommend these to you. If you prefer fragranced product, do visit the website and view the other ranges as Green People have an extensive line which covers from head to toe, for all ages. The kit I received is available to buy and contains 50ml cleanser, 50ml moisturiser, 10ml eye cream which is a good trial size to enable you to properly evaluate the performance on your skin.

Have you tried any products from Green People or are they on your wish list?

  1. I've not tried anything from the skin care range before, only their deodorant which was OK. I don't really have sensitive skin but cleanser does appeal to me from the ingredients used.

    1. The cleanser is nice & creamy, no fussy ingredients, so shouldn't strip the skin, I feel that would suit most people :-)

  2. You know I've never tried anything from Green People before! The sensitive range sounds perfect though, so will probably be taking advantage of the 10% offer :) x

    1. The eye creams are good value and I'm able to use on my delicate/eczema skin so worth a try :-)

  4. Love the sound of the cleanser - I've only tried one or two things from Green People which were both bodycare items, so it's good to know they have a sensitive skin range x

    1. For me it's great to see a company, targeting this skin type, I think the cleanser is a good all round product :-)

  5. I haven't tried Green People, but good to know- I think sensitive skin products like this are good for everyone to have- we all go through periods where our skin is more sensitive sometimes!

  7. That skin care range looks good. On a different topic but sort of related, what sun cream do you recommend for your face? I have eczema/dermatitis like you.

    1. Suncreams are problematic for me, many brands cause me reactions and that goes for chemical and natural based products. I don't use a daily sunscreen on my face, but when on holiday & sunbathing etc I use Lavera and last year I tried Badger Balm which I liked but its currently not available in the UK. Green People also have some but I've yet to try the sample I was sent.

  8. Thanks. I don't use it daily and even in the summer I try to wear a hat to cover my face but I'd like to have something just in case. I'm looking into baby's ones at the moment. My skin is extremely sensitive on my face so I have to be very careful. I've also noticed that some have citrus oils which are supposed to be phototoxic so I try to avoid them.

    1. Perhaps a moisturiser with SPF is an option if you are just looking for daily protection but not sunbathing, several people have recommended to me John Masters or Kimberley Sayer.

    2. I'd thought about the Kimberley Sawyer. The cheaper of the toe is aimed at oily, acne proned skin and it contains lemon essential oil. The other one is twice the price so in waiting for the chance to try the sample. I hadn't thought about John Masters. I'll have a look. Thanks for the info. It's rubbish to have such a sensitive skin :-(

  9. Thanks for sharing this - I haven't tried any Green People apart one or two samples I've received in boxes/with orders. Do like that this is a sample set, great to be able to try them out before you commit. x

    1. It's a nice sized travel or sample kit, got a few weeks use out of the cleanser, the eye cream lasts for ages as only use a small amount :-)

  10. I haven't tried anything from this brand! But it looks like I need to asap!
