Green People’s Nordic Roots Truffle Night Cream features skin soothing northern truffle (the ‘ultimate magical mushroom’), wild harvested in Finnish forests under the magical glow of the Northern Lights. Entirely scent-free, Truffle Night Cream gives skin a rise-and-shine glow with a moisture-binding blend of ceramides, hemp seed oil, cellular apple water and glycerine. This sinks in overnight to reset skin hydration levels so that dry patches are diminished, and skin feels plump, firm, soft and protected. Northern Truffle is rich in antioxidant phenols and grifolin, which helps to ease skin discomfort and prevent the sensation of itching. As well as soothing and protecting, it relieves redness and irritation whilst you rest and works in tandem with ceramides, which lock moisture into the skin by sealing gaps, and hemp seed oil, which nourishes overnight to enhance softness.

Offering a different take on festive treats, HAPPi has launched its new Easter bars in a bid to make the celebrations more eco-friendly and help combat the extra 8,000 tonnes of packaging waste generated every year. The egg-shaped bars target Easter egg lovers who are happy to ditch their usual hollow egg and are available in Plain Milk, Salted Honeycomb and White Raspberry. “We are really excited to launch our new Easter Egg bars, as we know there is demand for great quality and eco-friendly choices at this time of year,” says Gavin Cox, founder of HAPPi. “The new Easter Egg bars are packaged in 100% recyclable materials and create much less waste than standard eggs. We are really proud of the fact that we will be able to help reduce waste this Easter, as well as deliver the same great-tasting, rich and creamy chocolate that we are known for.”
