Green People, one of my natural skincare favourites, are celebrating 20 years of selling organic skincare and beauty products.  From facial skincare to baby toiletries, to make up and sunscreen, Green People sell only organic and natural products and it’s been great watching them go from strength to strength over the years.

As part of the celebrations they have launched a limited edition line of gorgeously scented Damask Rose products, which I’ve been trialing out.   At the end of this post keep your eyes peeled for a special offer of a free Damask Rose moisturiser for you to try for yourself!

The Damask Rose Moisturiser is a rich yet vegan friendly facial moisturiser, that’s 89% organic.  Packed full of avocado oil, the cream is nourishing and naturally anti-wrinkle, without any parabens, lanolin, alcohol, artificial perfumes, petrochemicals, phthalates and colourant, so is suitable for those that may be prone to eczema and psoriasis.

I’ve used Green People moisturiser for years (particularly this one), and the Damask Rose moisturiser is the same great quality I love with a lovely rose and jasmine scent that’s perfect for summer.  I always feel the quality of their moisturisers is comparable with creams double or even triple the price, without the dubious ingredients.

The Damask Rose Cleanser is again vegan, and 91% organic, and is effective at naturally removing make-up – even waterproof mascara.  Packed with shea butter and jojoba oil, it moisturisers as it cleanses.   I’m not normally a cleanser person but I have really enjoyed using the cleanser.  My skin has felt nourished and clean, but not stripped, and again, the scent is just lovely.

Finally, the Damask Rose Hand Cream has been a real treat to use.  Vegan friendly, 91% organic, and suitable for those with sensitive skins, it’s rich and intensely moisturising but non-greasy.   Formulated with shea butter, jojoba oil and aloe vera and scented with rose – it’s full of good stuff.  I am prone to a bit of dry skin on my hands, and I’ve found this cream has helped.

To celebrate their anniversary, Green People are giving away a 2 week supply of their limited edition Damask Rose Moisturiser free to all customers with every order over £5, whilst stocks last.  Simply use the code AFROSE at the checkout so you can try it for yourself!

Ten Things

eco blog

Hello!  How has your week been?  Remember I said last week that my youngest was ill?  Well, her bug has slowly worked it’s way around all of us, and gosh, are we tired.  This weekend is very much one for putting my feet up as much as you can with two little kids underfoot, drinking a lot of tea (loose leaf!), and trying not to put the washing machine on because the thing hasn’t been off all week!

Here are some links for your weekend:

1. In case you haven’t heard, Michael Gove is the new Environment Secretary.  Here’s his voting record on green issues in case you’re curious.  Spoiler – it’s grim.  He did get off to a good start though so maybe all is not lost?  Maybe??

2. Young people are the key to fighting climate change.

3.  Even if you’re not in the ‘young’ category (*sob*), here are real tangible things you can do about climate change.

4. Turns out viscose isn’t quite so sustainable as we’d hoped.

5.  Microbeads are back, but this time they are good for the environment?

6. Podcast fans – there’s a new podcast on the block from Clare Press.  Wardrobe Crisis is a fashion podcast that discusses the effects of the fashion industry on people and the planet, with a focus on ethics, sustainability, consumerism, activism, identity and creativity.  I will be all ears!

7. David Attenborough narrates a typical British night out and it’s hilarious!

8.  I’ve never been to Cornwall before, but now I’m craving a trip after seeing these beautiful photos.

9.  Oh my gosh, yes please!

10.  And last, but certainly not least by any means, here’s how you can help the residents of Grenfell Tower.   What’s happened is truly devastating, and I have no words.

And here are three posts from the Moral Fibres archive you may have missed:
