Green People Sun Care Natural Sunscreen Scent Free

For our recent trip to Italy I decided to pack Green People Sun Lotion SPF 30, Facial Sun Cream SPF 30 and Soft Lips SPF8 all from the Scent Free Range. We were only travelling with cabin allowance so the 100ml and 50ml sizes were perfect for airport security. Green People sunscreens are marine friendly and offer broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection.

I've been using Green People sun care on and off over the years, having first tried and reviewed them in 2014. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think the formulation has been improved over time. The products feel a little lighter and easier to rub in. The scent free option is always welcome here as it eliminates my worries over essential oil allergens. 

Green People Scent Free Facial Sun Cream SPF 30
We had an active holiday visiting a number of cities across Tuscany and the 100ml Sun Lotion lasted us the full trip (12 days with application to legs, arms and chest, no sunbathing). I am prone to prickly heat but I didn't have any issues this year, that could be down to sheer luck or Green People sun lotion. I previously hadn't tried the Green People facial sun cream so was interested to put that to the test. Again application didn't feel too greasy and it rubbed in easily without leaving a lasting ghostly white cast (I have fair skin). I did layer over the top Madara Hyaluronic Anti-Pollution CC Cream SPF15 as foundation coverage, the two products worked well together and stayed put in the heat. I always wear a hat and sunglasses but my face still gained a little colour and I felt protected against burning. I always forget about SPF lip balms and opted to try Green People Soft Lips. This was another great product, a nice balm texture with easy application using fingers or direct from the tube.

Green People remains one of my first choices for natural sun creams and I do recommend them quite often. The smaller sizes are great for on the go and allow for testing without too much commitment should you decided it isn't right for you. 

Have you tried these products? If so let me know your thoughts on them.

Review Unique Nature Green Moisture Shampoo
You all know that Organic Surge Moisture Boost shampoo has been a staple for me over the past few months. I had no intention of trying anything new, well that was until I spotted Unique Nature Green Moisture Shampoo in TK Maxx. I could not resist £9.99 for a 600ml bottle

The brand is from Denmark and products are certified Organic and BUAV approved.  The free from list is fantastic, no GMO’s, parabens, DEA’s, TEA’s, MEA’s, PEG, SLS, SLES, artificial colours, artificial fragrance, propylene glycol, silicones, nano, petrochemicals and phthalates.  The company ethics and philosophy are about sustainability, fairness and ecological lifestyle.

The Green Moisture Shampoo is for dry and damaged hair.  The scent is fresh, perhaps slightly fruity and comes from organic cornflower.  This is a clear liquid on the runny side compared to Organic Surge.  For an SLS/SLES free shampoo the lather is reasonable.  As I have thick hair I do double wash and the lather is better on the second wash.  This has not irritated my scalp or eczema on my neck.  Overall I am happy with the performance and results.  It’s not a miracle worker for my dry ends, I think Organic Surge has slightly better results but I am not fussy as my Louise Galvin conditioner makes up for this.

The downside is I have failed to see where I can purchase this in the UK.  As you know TK Maxx doesn’t have regular stock.  Sadly I think this is going to be a one off because of lack of stockists and I will go back to Organic Surge.  In the meantime I am enjoying this whilst it lasts and the value for money is a bonus.
