THE WINTER HAND CARE CHALLENGE WITH GREEN PEOPLE

winter hand care Green People

I don’t know about you but my hands get extremely dry at this time of year. I always joke that my hands look like an old lady’s hands but it really is true. They look like they belong to someone much older than 31 and I hate it. Not only do they not look very nice, but it’s also uncomfortable. My hands feel tight and painful when the skin cracks, and this continues all through winter.

I’m really fussy when it comes to hand creams, the scent has to be right and it needs to sink into the skin quickly and not leave a greasy feel. It’s actually a lot harder than you would think to find a hand cream that ticks all the boxes.

The Winter Skin Care Challenge

Green People is a brand that I’ve loved for a long time, their products are organic and are always kind to sensitive skin. When they got in touch to see if I would like to take part in their winter skin care challenge I of course said yes!

The idea of the winter skin care challenge is simple, I was gifted a manuka & lemon tea tree hand wash along with two manuka & lemon tea tree hand creams (one for home and one for out and about). I got straight into using the products in the hope that they would nourish my poor hands and bring them back to life.

Manuka & lemon tea tree antibacterial hand wash

The Green People manuka & lemon tea tree hand wash is 100% certified organic and made with 80% certified organic ingredients. It kills harmful bacteria quickly thanks to powerful extracts from the Australian Tea Tree and New Zealand Manuka. It’s scent of lemon, tea tree and sweet orange is amazing and very refreshing.

This is also available in a scent free variety for those with allergies and sensitivities.

Manuka & lemon tea tree hand wash (300ml) – £13

Manuka & lemon tea tree hand cream

Green People’s manuka & lemon tea tree hand cream not only smells divine, but it also leaves my hands feeling super soft and nourished. As I mentioned earlier I don’t like hand creams that leave your hands feeling greasy and this one definitely doesn’t thanks to it’s non-greasy, lightweight formula.

Tea tree helps to soothe cracked skin and the sweet orange acts as an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, helping to restore dry and cracked hands.

Manuka & lemon tea tree hand cream (50ml) – £12.50

Before

Here’s a couple of before shots of my hands, as you can see the skin is very dry…

After

And here is what my hands look like now, after using the products for almost two weeks. So much better, don’t you think?

I am over the moon with how much better my hands are looking and feeling in just under two weeks. The hand wash and hand cream have proved to be the perfect combination at killing bacteria and restoring my dry hands. I will definitely continue to use these products, my hands have never felt to soft and nourished!

    Wow…you can really see the difference! As a nurse, my hands get really dry after continuous hand-washing throughout the day. I try my best to keep applying hand cream throughout the day but it’s not very long before you have to wash them again! So I try to do an intensive treatment when I’m asleep and hope for the best! These products sound amazing.
