This is my third Hempz review, isn’t that mad? I have loved previous products I’ve tried from the brand so was super thrilled to be sent some of their new Hempz Citrine Crystal & Quartz range to try out by the lovely ladies at Alex Silver PR!
The Hempz Citrine Crystal & Quartz range is brand new for Summer 2019 and as always with Hempz products, it’s enriched with 100% pure natural hemp seed oil, 100% vegan, THC free, paraben free, gluten free and cruelty free. This range contains orange, lemon, mandarin and grapefruit oils to help transform you into a glowing god/goddess for Summer time. It’ll hydrate, refresh and energise your skin as well as making it subtly sparkle with the quartz dust element of the range.
Sounds pretty perfect, right? Read on to see what I thought of the Hempz Citrine Crystal & Quartz range…
Being honest, I was a bit skeptical about this product at first as I’ve always found any sort of foaming wash dries my skin out. As someone who has quite regular skin reactions and eczema, dryness is not something I welcome. I think Hempz have got the formula of this one bang on though as they’ve added Shea butter to it. I didn’t actually know this before using it for the first time and was so pleasantly surprised by how nourished my skin felt afterwards.
The scent is simply stunning, too. I’m a sucker for anything citrus or orange, especially during the sunny Summer months. I feel like the fact it’s a foam wash helps the scent to sink into the skin further which makes it last longer than a regular wash. Longer lasting scent paired with additional moisture has made this a product that’s up there with one of the most beneficial I’ve tried for my skin.
Surprisingly enough, this has been my favourite Hempz moisturiser so far. It’s so beautifully fruity but in my opinion smells a little different to the body wash. It’s got more of a grapefruit based scent whereas the body wash is much more orange based. The formula is lightweight but provides medium moisture and leaves the skin feeling silky smooth on the surface.
Although some people might see this as a downside, I love that the formula doesn’t last for hours. If a moisturiser lasts too long, I feel like it clogs up my skin and prevents it from releasing heat, consequently making me sweat. I don’t feel that way with this formula at all, the moisture and the scent sticks around for 1-2 hours then gradually fades into the skin. It also leaves the most lovely sparkle making your daily skin routine that little more special.
Have you tried any of the Hempz Citrine Crystal & Quartz range yet? I’d absolutely love to try the other two products in the range!
