There can't be many people out there who haven't heard of Movember, but if you haven't, it's the month of the year where men are given free reign to let their facial hair run free, all in the name of charity. To date, the Movember Foundation has raised £346million, with that figure only continuing to rise. The usual charities are testicular and prostate cancer, with the idea being that the growing of facial hair encourages conversation and therefore subsequent donations. In recognition of the Movember movement, Green People sent over some products from the Organic Homme range for the fella in my life to try out.
We were sent over the Organic Homme Gentlemen's Classic Clean Shave Kit*, which consists of both the Shave Now Wash & Shave and Cool Down Moisturiser. The products come nicely presented in a gift box, alongisde a free razor and shaving brush. The products are sleek and simple in plain matte black packaging with bold white text, which is effective, and in keeping with the simplicity of the rest of the Green People range.
Shave Now Wash & Shave
This 2-in-1 certified organic face wash and shaving gel (who doesn't love a multi-purpose product?!) has a light scent of grapefruit, and lathers up well, especially with the high quality brush that comes along with the kit. As with all Green People products, it's free from SLS, parabens, and artificial substitutes, so you can be assured that the products are gentle and kind on your skin. Unfortunately, R discovered in using this product that he has a sensitivity to citrus products, so has had to pass this product on to me. I contacted the Green People team to enquire about the ingredients to find out what might be causing the problem, and straight away they got back to me to let me know what the problem might be. R was very disappointed to not be able to use the shaving gel again, as it is a luxurious, high quality product - oh well, more product for me! The razor that comes along with the set looks very classy, and is in fact a Gilette razor housed in a heavily-weighted handle, which seems to be much easier to handle than cheaper, light-weight razors.
Cool Down Moisturiser
The cool down moisturiser is a soothing skincare product which is said to cool the skin, calm irritation, and can be used as an after-sun product. It contains aloe vera, shea butter, green tea, mint and calendula, and smells really lovely! The great thing about the Cool Down Moisturiser, is that it is suitable for those with skincare complaints such as eczema and psoriasis. I am told that this feels very soothing once applied post-shave, and feels as luxurious as you would come to expect from Green People.
