Have you heard of Green & Spring skincare before? I was introduced to them when I had a facial at The Beauty Shed, and was given a little starter kit to try at home. And now I have a very expensive product addiction on my hands...
A lovely, quintessentially British brand, Green & Spring products were all inspired by herbs and flowers native to the British countryside, and the products smell like something you wouldn't believe. Imagine taking the lid off a pot of face scrub to be hit with the smell of an English Country Garden on a summer's day and you're almost there. Can we also just take a moment to appreciate the packaging? How adorable?
The entire Green & Spring range extends to bath & body products, hair care and the most incredible smelling candles that would rival the likes of Neom and Diptyque (not that I've ever been lucky enough to own a candle quite that posh!) but they undoubtedly shine with their 100% natural, ethical skincare.
The skincare starter set* includes miniatures of the light cleanser, mild toner, deep face scrub and nourishing day cream - everything you need to get you
addicted started. It goes without saying that the products are of a superior quality, since they're used for professional spa treatments - the creamy formulas and calming aromas are totally luxurious and instantly perk up your skin and your soul. That's because every single product in the Green & Spring range uses aromatherapy essential oils which are renowned for soothing the mind and soul and promoting a sense of well-being.
The four step skincare routine leaves my skin looking bright and feeling rejuvenated, soft and supple - especially after using the loofah. I only include the loofah occasionally as it's pretty rough and could do some damage if used on a regular basis - but used to apply the creamy cleanser, it takes off all the dead, dull skin and boosts circulation to leave my skin really soft and glowing. Following with the toner refreshes and soothes the skin, reducing any redness caused by exfoliating, and the thick nourishing day moisturiser replenishes the skin's softness and creates a perfect base for the day.
Unfortunately for my bank balance, the starter kit has done it's job rather well and left me wanting more. I've been lusting after a pot of Rich Night Cream for months, but at £38 I think I'll be saving my pennies for quite a while! However, it is my birthday coming up... hint hint....
