This post covers the serums, oil and moisturiser, the first post introduces the brand and features the cleansing balm and exfoliator product.
I’m sure this is going to become a cult product in the natural world, a beauty kit must-have for all in the know. The Serum contains 23 beauty-enhancing actives which work together to smooth contour lines within 15 minutes of application. Based on plant stem cell technology, I’ve already seen a difference in our skin – you can see a visible reduction in the appearance of fine lines almost instantly. The skin is hydrated and plumper. The Line Eraser Lip & Eye Serum is infused with the aroma of organic Rosewood, Palmarosa, Blue Chamomile, Ylang Ylang, Lavender, Rose Geranium and Ho Wood.
Plant stem cells are greatly debated for efficacy but I have seen the power of this product and recommend you try it for yourself! I thought I’d share with you a little bit of knowledge about stem cells. All multi-cell organisms have stem cells. They divide and replace lost or dying cells and also repairs the skin when it is injured. As our skin is always renewing itself, sloughing its cells every single day, it’s important to optimise epidermal stem cell population. It’s thought that by applying plant stem cells to our skin that we encourage the growth of our own stem cells. The plant stem cells are sourced from Sea Holly and they have powerful regenerative and rejuvenating properties to stimulate and protect elastin, fibrillin and collagen. A trial of this ingredient showed that skin hydration increased by 95%, smoothness by 38% and tightness increased by 27%. The fast-results ingredient though is the Argan Seed extract, which firms skin within 15 minutes of application and has a long-term effect on deeper wrinkles. Finally, Baicalin is another ingredient of note. It’s a powerful antioxidant, a flavonoid, which helps turn back the clock by increasing skin restructuring, firmness and elasticity.

This oil worked in perfect matrimony with the Hydrate and Renew Serum and it also gave a stellar performance on its own before the weather turned cold and my skin started getting drier with it. It contains 20 beauty-enhancing ingredients, a blend of antioxidants, skin nutrients and organic plant actives, to help promote youthfulness and leave skin beautifully soft. All of the products in this range are extremely potent so you only need the smallest amount, this oil included! I loved the uplifting aroma, its infused with Lavender, Cedarwood, Ho Wood, Rose Geranium, Ylang Ylang, Palmarosa, Lemon and Chamomile.
The key active ingredients in this product are Rosehip oil to promote cell regeneration and renewal to help reduce the signs of ageing. Rosehip oil is also rich in EFA to help plump up the skin. Perilla and Blackcurrant Seed oils are rich in antioxidants and increase skin elasticity. Evening Primrose and Pomegranate oils support collagen and elastin production, help reduce inflammation and bring balance to the skin.

This moisturiser was great on its own before the weather turned cold, however when the mercury dropped I needed to combine with the Hydrate & Renew Serum and the Cell Enrich Facial Oil. I think I might leave the moisturiser for use in the summer months next year as it helps to reduce pigmentation, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles – all signs of sun damage! The cream contains plant-sourced Squalene and Jojoba to offer intense hydration to the skin to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The texture is buttery and leaves skin feeling soft and smooth. With use, skin is brighter and more radiant. Fine lines and wrinkles are minimised thanks to the actives of plant Squalene and Jojoba esters. Cucumber Seed, White Mulberry Bark and Hibiscus Flower have a synergistic action to lighten and even the skin tone, addressing hyperpigmentation and age spots. A 28-day trial showed a reduction in melanin production by 22% and inhibition of tyrosinase activity by 18%. A little goes a long way with this product, so don’t be overzealous when dispensing – half a pump is all you need to cover neck and face. There’s also Pineapple enzyme to fade pigmentation on the surface of the skin, and Beech Bud extract to stimulate cell metabolism and increase cell turnover – thus refining skin tone.

Biteable Beauty’s Final Verdict on Green People Age Defy+
I loved this range of anti-ageing products. They were most welcome upon my recent return from holiday I found the oil and serum most effective at rehydrating my sun-parched skin and use of them all in combination seems to have left my skin radiant and with even skin tone – my areas of pigmentation around my eyes and cheekbones have been reduced. High-performance products that I would absolutely recommend to my friends and family, particularly those who enjoy a healthy sun tan like me!
