Last month a brand called Green Keratin reached out to me and asked if I would like to try a beauty box made up of products that would fit my skin type. I had already bought a moisturiser and a mask so was really interested in trying more.
Green Keratin is a independent U.K. brand creating natural products in Bristol. They very kindly sent me the following products to test:
- Hyaluronic C Perfecting Face Wash
- Hyaluronic C Perfecting Facial Toner
- HA Gel Serum
- Manuka and Vitamin A Clarifying Facial Oil
- Manuka Re-balancing Face Mask
I have been testing them all for around 4 weeks and here is what I think.
Hyaluronic C Perfecting Face Wash is gorgeous. A light gel texture that foams without using SLS, with a beautiful fragrance of Rose Geranium. Perfect for an AM or second cleanse, it’s wonderfully refreshing. A 150ml pump bottle is £14.95.
The only product that wasn’t my cup of tea was the toner. Not because it isn’t hydrating (you know I love a spritz!) the fragrance isn’t for me. I got a licorice/aniseed type of scent which I wasn’t keen on. Otherwise the toner is like the cleanser, very refreshing. A 100ml bottle is £13.95
My favourite product of all is the Manuka and Vitamin A Facial Oil. It’s truly fabulous, for me it helps balance my oiliness while still having the effects of hydration I love from an oil. I haven’t had any breakouts since using it, not even the usual hormonal spots around my jawline. Manuka and Vitamin A Facial Oil is light and sinks in so quickly. The value is immense, a 50ml bottle is £19.95. It’s an absolute winner!
HA Gel Serum is a fab light lotion, I’ve used it as a serum under moisturiser and with the oil as a light Emulsion. Another beautiful scent of the Rose Geranium, it’s versatile and so easy to use. I have really enjoyed using this Serum. For a 50ml bottle the price is £19.95 so exceptional value for money.
The re-balancing Mask is also great, it’s a clay mask that takes about 10 minutes, I loved the effect this had on my skin. Afterwards my skin felt clean and looked really clear. I used this twice a week and saw the benefits very quickly. A 50ml jar is £12.95.
I must stress the quality of the ingredients for the price range is fantastic, (I’ll be doing a separate review of the moisturiser and other Mask later). In my opinion the products are brilliant, both in terms of ingredients and value for money. There are many more products from the brand I would like to try, so I’m sure you will see much more from them on the blog!
I would like to say a huge thank you to the team at Green Keratin, I’ve enjoyed using the products so much, there are definitely things from this box I want to have again! Especially the facial oil, it’s truly amazing. I’m also very pleased to try products from a UK independent brand. You will find GK at http://www.greenkeratin.co.uk.
