Green People got in touch with their favourite bloggers to see if the men in their life would like to try some of their Organic Homme products to raise awareness for Movember.
Paul was really excited when I sent him a screenshot of the email but he was a little worried about taking over my blog for this post…He asked for the Organic Homme Wash & Shave*, the Cool Down Moisturiser* and the lovely peeps at Green People very kindly popped into the parcel a shaving brush and razor!
I’ll start off with the nitty gritty details about the products and then I’ll let Paul takeover the post (eek!) with what he thought about both products.
The Wash & Shave is a 2-in-1 certified organic face wash and natural shaving gel. It claims to lift hair shaft to prepare for a closer shave, help to prevent razor burn and reduce nicks and cuts at the same time as conditioning and protecting skin. The key ingredients are Aloe Vera, Amaranth protein, Irish Moss, Grapefruit & Orange.
The Cool Down Moisturiser is a certified organic, after shave moisturiser which works in harmony with the Wash & Shave. It replaces the natural oils needed to healthy skin and soothes skin with fairtrade Shea butter and organic almond oil. Plant actives and antioxidants guard against spots and the key ingredients in the moisturiser include aloe vera, shea butter, green tea, mint & calendula.
Over to Paul…
Wash & Shave
I think this worked well as a face wash and it was quite refreshing due to the citrus scent. However, I found that it was difficult to lather up enough in order to have a comfortable shave. This is not something new though, as I’ve found in the past, mainstream shaving products are not always the best either. Overall, I found the benefit of the wash outweighs the shaving aspect and I was happy that my skin didn’t feel tight or dry after using the wash.
Cool Down Moisturiser
I found the moisturiser also very refreshing after using the face wash. It has a minty scent like After Eights and is cooling on the face. I also applied some on my body after showering to cool myself down as I found this to be very refreshing after a gym session. The consistency is very runny so you have to be careful not to pour too much out and it takes a little while to rub it in but overall I was happy with this moisturiser. I would buy this one again as I feel that the price is good for how much you get and it will last a while.
The wash & shave is £12.95 for a 125ml tube and the moisturiser retails for £14.50 for a 125ml tube. Shop Green People’s men’s products, Organic Homme, here and don’t forget to make a donation to Movember!
