Blogmas 2017 Day 1: Keeping My Skin Soft This Winter w/ Green People + GIVEAWAY

Blogmas is finally here, and I’m kicking it off with a bang. I’ve teamed up with Green People (y’all know I love their products and their brand) to not only review some items from their Christmas collection, but also host a giveaway so that one of you guys can win this stuff too! This is also my first ever giveaway, and I’m so excited that I can host it just before Christmas and give you guys a little present from me and Green People. I’ll have more on the rules and stuff at the end of this post, so keep reading to find out what you could win!

Green People’s Christmas collection is called Modern Botanicals, and the packaging is the perfect combination of modern with the illustrations and traditionally festive with the colour scheme. I picked the Forest and Fruit Body Set and the Spice and Root Hand Cream as they excited me the most, but the collection also includes a Leaf and Stem Body Set (which is unscented for sensitive skin), a Tree and Seed Body Set for men and a Zest and Bark Hand Cream.

The body sets come with a shower gel and body lotion, and the Forest and Fruit set with Cypress and Tangerine smells incredible. If you combined the scent of really citrus-y oranges and a Christmas tree then this is what you would get – it smells so festive in the best possible way. The shower gel is so great for waking me up in the morning and giving me a boost of energy from the citrus, and the body lotion is so insanely moisturising and contains the amazing ingredient of aloe vera, which is perfect for this cold weather.

Both of these give you 100ml of product which isn’t bad, and they are 83% organic, vegan and cruelty-free. What’s even better is that for every Forest and Fruit set sold, Green People will donate 50p to the organisation Plantlife – so you can treat a loved one, or yourself, to this gift and also give back!

The Spice and Root Hand Cream also smells amazing; it’s really spicy because of the ginger but the lemongrass keeps it fresh. This is a fairly thick hand cream, which I love as I need all the protection I can get during the winter! This is also 91% organic, and is vegan and cruelty-free.

For every one of these hand creams sold Green People will donate 15p to Plantlife, so you can really do your bit for the planet just by purchasing a hand cream! This would make for a great stocking stuffer, because it’s only £7.75 and who doesn’t love hand cream?

The range costs between £7.75 and £24.95, and any product would make a great gift for pretty much every family member! I don’t have a bad thing to say about this collection, I think it’s super festive and awesome quality – perfect for Christmas! You can grab this collection here.

So onto the giveaway! If you want a chance at winning both the Body Set and the Hand Cream, all you need to do is head over to my twitter (@theauburnagenda), make sure you’re following me and retweet my pinned tweet! For an extra entry you can comment down below what your favourite product from this line is. The giveaway ends on December 10th, and I’ll announce the winner on my twitter on the 11th! Good luck!

I hope you enjoyed this post, let me know in the comments what you think of this Christmas collection, and I hope you all enter my giveaway! See you tomorrow for the next Blogmas post,

    This looks like a cute giveaway. I have never heard of this brand before but after all the shenanigans with bloggers and fur recently I have seen a load of bloggers starting to think more about cruelty free living. I have never really thought about this but want to learn a lot more about it! I am also super excited for everybody’s Blogmas content this year!
