Review: Pink & Green Organic Skincare

It's not very often that I keep strictly to a routine from the same brand but I thought for the sake of this review, I'd ditch everything and stick to three products, a cleansing oil, toner and facial oil from Pink & Green*.

Pink and Green Organic Skincare was founded in April 2014 and launched in November 2014 by Holistic Therapist Carol Aplin. In Swindon. My hometown. Finally, a brand in my own backyard! 
Carol offers a unique skincare subscription box that shows up on your doorstep at an interval to suit you, taking that rush out of shopping when you run out of something.

After a brief conversation with Carol about my current skincare needs, I was sent a box (that fits perfectly through your letterbox FYI, no need to pick it up from the sorting office) that was specifically put together for me.  Inside was a Organic Facial Cleansing Oil, Organic Rose Floral Water and an Organic Facial Oil. Also included in the box is an Organic Muslin Cloth and a beautiful fabric pouch which would be perfect for transporting the items when travelling.

The Cleansing Oil is made with peach kernal oil, sweet orange and lavender essential oils. Add a few drops to the palm of your hand and massage into the skin. Remove with a warm muslin cloth after compressing to the skin for 20 seconds.
Following on from the cleansing oil, sptiz the Organic Rose Floral Water onto a cotton round until damp and apply to skin. I go in real swings with rose products but this has been so soothing to my (recently) sensitive skin.
Whist the skin is damp, apply the Organic Facial Oil. This one is especially for sensitive skin and is made with jojoba and hemp oils, lavender and chamomile essential oils.

The products worked wonderfully to sort out some sensitivities I had been having (red, flaky skin - eww) and fixed it right up. Carol knows her stuff and my skin reaped the benefits.

Go and take a look at Pink & Green and let me know if you buy anything! Carol can be followed on Twitter here.

  3. I'm glad we found this brand, it's a great idea to have a subscription skincare service :)

    1. It really is a brilliant idea - I wish Carol all the best because I think lots of people would sign up to cut out all the hassle of remembering to stock up x
