Review and giveaway: People for Plants

As a first time mum, I certainly feel like my life had been turned upside down and inside out, especially in the first few weeks of Alexander's arrival. In those early days, sometimes even a shower seems like a luxury, so it's no wonder that my skincare regime had been hugely neglected. Add to that the crazy weather conditions we'd experienced (cold and dry one day, hot and humid another), needless to say, my skin suffered a great deal and was in need of some serious TLC. So when I was told that a People for Plants care pack was on its way to me to trial and review, I was simply giddy with anticipation.
As it turns out, I was not disappointed. I am happy to report that after a few weeks of using People for Plants, my skin has been restored to its former healthy condition. I will now provide a review for each product starting with... 
aloe, grapefruit foaming cleansing gel
This product is formulated for normal combination skin so I was extremely dubious when I received it. In my mind, the words "foaming" and "gel" screams "drying" to me, so imagine my surprise to find that it was more of a aloe gel like consistency and while it did lather up, it was a creamy soft lather which was very effective in removing all traces of makeup. I have dry skin naturally but this cleanser left my skin feeling soft and not at all dry or tight. 
argan, pomegranate, milk thistle organic face oil
So my love affair with face oil continues; in fact, I'm at that point where I cannot fathom going without one. I use this product night and day prior to moisturising and it just adds the extra bit of moisture that my skin so badly needs. Yet it never feels greasy, even on the most humid days.
chamomile, calendula, shea sensitive moisture
A great unscented moisturiser that is deceptively lightweight but super hydrating. In fact, this product, together with the face oil has been absolute KEY to revitalizing my dull skin and restoring radiance. 
lemon myrtle, camellia, manuka honey hand cream
Perhaps my hands have been so ravaged by constant soaking in harsh detergents that this is the one product that did not work for me. I really wanted to love this hand cream; first impressions were promising - lovely scent (it's that lemon myrtle). But upon application, I found it took quite some effort and time for it to be absorbed into the skin and wasn't quite as moisturising as my dry hands would like and need.
papaya, quillaja, apricot body scrub
I actually haven't used a body scrub in ages. I tend to think it's not necessary and much rather spend time and money on my face than the rest of my body. After using this body scrub however, I realised just how much I've been missing out.  It's amazing how soft and smooth my skin felt after a quick all over scrub!
vanilla and cocoa butter organic lip balm
I am very fussy about my lip balm. I don't like formulas that feel too waxy or greasy. And I have found a lot of lip products out there that are supposedly hydrating, actually end up drying my lips. This organic lip balm is a great product. It simply glides (yes, it glides!) on and lips immediately feel soft and moist and stays that way for ages. I'm not usually a fan of vanilla/cocoa butter smell but this balm is so lightly scented I don't mind at all.
It's giveaway time! People for Plants is giving one lucky reader the chance to win all six products I have trialed and reviewed above (Total value: $130).

Unfortunately it is a throw of the dice when it comes to which genetics you end up with. I unfortunately inherited dry skin from my dad. Being forced to lather my skin all over daily can be a nuisance, not to mention the usual morning routine of face cream followed by moisturising sunscreen, lightweight foundation; and the endless times I apply cream to my hands throughout the day. I am still on the lookout for the perfect combination of creams to satisfy my dehydrated skin. Even once I apply creams, it soaks in so fast, it seems like I haven't apply anything at all. I would love to try these products
