Our Favourite Green Skincare Products: July 2020
2020 definitely hasn’t been easy because coronavirus has hit us so hard. I assumed majority of us have been staying home (a big shout out to everyone who still needs to work outside) and been avoiding crowds. Even though I actually quite enjoyed time being alone (aka a lot of me-time), one thing I definitely miss the most is to see my family and friends.
Thank god lock down is starting to ease and summer is coming – meet ups could be happening very soon! During this self-isolating period, to make sure I am well pampered and prepared for meeting people (yes, I mean new dates) I have tried these six green beauty products!
I have been staying home a lot, but once a while I still like to put on make up whenever I go out for a quick grocery run. This makeup remover is a jelly/gel-like makeup remover with a light rose scent – I love a more natural approach when comes to fragrances so this very subtle and natural scent is perfect for me. I like how gentle this make up remover is, when massaged onto skin it feels light and hydrated yet well-cleansed! With lighter make up I am happy to not double cleanse with a face wash after. Perfect for daily use when you don’t have a full-on make up! Great news, this is also a 100% vegan product!

When my skin feels congested and more sensitive, I like to use this balm. The lightweight balm texture glides smoothly onto the skin, the blend of different curated plant oils gently removes dirt and impurities. I like how it removes traces of make up too and leaves skin feeling soft, supple and bright. Not only it is a cleansing balm, this product includes a lot of great ingredients like rosehip oil, which is also great for its antioxidant properties. I love the luxurious packaging of the product too!

French Girl Rose Crème Lumiere, £40.49
It is a nourishing cream that help promotes brighter and healthier looking skin. With hyaluronic acid and ingredients like rose geranium essential oils, it provides long lasting hydrating and antioxidant properties. I love the subtle, not too overpowering rose scent. It does take some time to sink into the skin but it is very moisturising without feeling greasy. I do have a more combination skin so I prefer to use this at night! But I would see this working great on dry skin for both morning and night use!

When my skin doesn’t want to play ball, especially around my period, this mask comes in handy. This gel-textured mask includes ingredients like hyaluronic acid, green tea and lavender which provides instant moisture as well as antiseptic properties. I love how the tea tree oil and peppermint scent has a very soothing effect. It is also a very versatile product where you can apply as an overnight mask or a quick rescue mask! I love to use this when my skin is breaking out to calm and soothe!

Not sure if you can relate, but my sleeping routine has completely messed up during quarantine life. This eye serum is a plant cells extracted serum that helps soothes and de-puff the eye area. I love the metal roller ball design which definitely help with de-puffing the eye area. The light consistency of the serum gets absorbed into the skin almost immediately and with cucumber extract it gives a cooling effect, which is perfect for summer. I don’t see a huge difference in terms of brightening and reducing wrinkles – but if you are looking for an eye serum that is light and refreshing for summer use, I still recommend it!

Has everyone else been tanning a lot recently? This serum has definitely helped me with repairing my skin from the sun. With a powerful blend of vitamins, peptides and organic plants extract, this serum does have a thicker sunscreen-like consistency but without feeling heavy on skin. It claims to reduce appearance of age spot and hyperpigmentation – I personally do have some scarring which I know it will take time to see the results. But my skin definitely felt softer and brighter after a few uses (and I love how it doesn’t have a strong fragrance and also didn’t break me out!).
