|Gifted| Green People’s new Nordic Roots range was a highly anticipated collection that is instilled with purity, simplicity and functionality. Nordic Roots is a range of four natural and organic skincare products that draw on the founder of the brand’s Danish upbringing and Nordic heritage to celebrate the native flora and fauna that makes Nordic Roots unique and very special indeed…
The range combines Nordic actives with the high quality you expect from Green People to deliver scent-free and gender-neutral products that showcase hard-working, functional skincare at its very best. The packaging design across the whole range is simple, clean and echos the values that Green People are so passionate about with their nature and science in balance ethos. Not only this, but the package is incredibly Earth conscious with glass bottles, recyclable plastic pumps and outer boxes made from Storch, a sustainable, compostable and biodegradable grass-based packaging that uses less water and energy to produce than cardboard.
I have been lucky enough to try the whole Nordic Roots collection since it launched back in July yet today i’m sharing my thoughts on the Nordic Roots Hyaluronic Booster Serum, an intensely hydrating serum that is forumlated with organic plant extracts to plump, renew, nourish and smooth the skin – all while calming any sensitivities and working in harmony with the skin’s natural PH. The Hyaluronic Booster Serum contains hyaluronic acid and Nordic actives such as sugar beets, that are rich in amino acids and help to lock-in moisture, and hop flowers that help target age spots, pigmentation and boost luminosity.
As a big fan of Hyaluronic Acid, it is no surprise that this was the first Nordic Roots product I reached for when trying everything out. The serum has a light, creamy texture that is unlike any other HA product i’ve ever used within my routine. It doesn’t have the usual tacky quality that other HA serums have and simply absorbs into the skin without leaving behind any residue at all, just a soft finish to the skin in its wake. I found that 2 drops was plenty to quench my dry and dehydrated skin, as it really spreads across the face beautifully making it great value for money.
After immediate application, my skin felt soft to the touch and my skincare products sat well when layered over the top. I experienced no adverse effects after use, even when my skin was a little irritated during the Summer months, and I didn’t find that the changeable weather/temperatures effected it’s performance in any way. After around two week’s of use in the AM only, I felt like my face wasn’t feeling tight throughout the day and didn’t have the flaky, lack-lustre appearance it usually has when it nears time for my PM skincare routine. My skin was feeling nice and smooth to the touch and generally looked fresher and plumper throughout the day. When integrating it into both my AM and PM routines for a little over 6 weeks now, I have really experienced a wealth of positive effects that makes this a winning product in my skincare ritual.
My skin is less dry and dehydrated, with the fine lines on my forehead looking less noticeable and plumper and my skin feeling soft and smooth to the touch. I feel that my face doesn’t have the tight feeling after a night’s sleep and I don’t find myself reaching for additional skincare as much throughout the day. I like the fact that my other skincare products seem to be sitting better on my skin and that their moisturising properties are lasting much longer as my skin is hydrated before application. The scent-free formulation made it a great addition to my skincare routine, even when I was experiencing eczema flare-up’s, and it has certainly given my skin an extra glow as the season is beginning to change.
What is even nicer is that it is long lasting in both product amount and great results. It’s performance has gone beyond my expectations and is far more than a simple hyaluronic acid. It epitomises everything Green People stand for and is refreshing to use ingredients within skincare that I don’t usually use. I cannot wait to continuing using the rest of the Nordic Roots range but one thing is for sure that Green People’s Nordic Roots Hyaluronic Booster Serum will certainly be an addition to my skincare routine for the long haul.
