Seasonal Gifts | Green people

There is no denying it, the season of gift giving is so close that I am starting to panic a little. Normally I love getting presents for people, but generating ideas year after year for my nearest and dearest (who already have pretty much everything that I could afford to buy) is undeniably getting harder. A gift box of beauty products is always a good fail safe, especially when it is wonderfully presented.

Green people dialled up the cuteness factor with their limited edition collection in support of woodland trust. There are four different selection boxes: for face, body, hands, and even one for the guys. Each one is represented by a different animal and the illustrations on the packaging are absolutely amazing. I have been testing the hand care gift set* for the past month, which is represented by the badger.

Inside the box there are two differently scented 50ml tubes of hand cream. Lavender and rose geranium smells fantastic, sweet and lightly floral, it is fairly strong fragrance but not to the point of becoming of putting. The texture is light and the lotion sinks in like a dream, there is no stickiness or residue left behind. The size makes it easy to chuck into a handbag for use  through out the day. Ho wood and red mandarin has a slightly thicker texture, I tend to use it when my hands are feeling extra dry. It still doesn't leave any residue, which I find very impressive. The scent is not as strong and a little unusual, there is a mixture of sweet fruit, green leaves and a subtle woodsy note. Both creams are quiet concentrated, I only need a tiny blob for my hands to feel nicely hydrated. I only tend to need to reaply after washing my hands, the creams do a fab job at combating dryness.

From every purchase of this gift set Green people donate 50p to the woodland trust. If you are not familiar, Woodland trust are a UK conservation charity that protects forests from destruction, restores ancient woodlands and protects the wildlife who inhibits them. The hand creams are also made with 91% organic ingredients. The quality of the products, the sentiment behind them and creative illustrations make it a truly wonderful gift. After getting acquainted with the badger set, I find myself being very tempted by the fox.

Did any of the green people gift sets catch your eye? Let me know in the comments.

*PR sample, all opinions are honest and my own based on my personal experience with the products. That is just how I do things.
