Natural Based Nourishment With Hempz!

Natural Based Nourishment With Hempz!

Hey everyone!

It’s no secret I’ve been suffering recently with my facial skin. One thing I haven’t really mentioned anywhere is that the skin on my body has also flared up too. I’ve suffered with eczema and skin allergies for as long as I can remember but it seems to be very picky with what it’s okay with. When I’m in a bad flare up with my skin, l have to be extremely careful not to aggravate it further with the products I apply. I’ve been eyeing up Hempz for a while as when I had severe eczema flare ups on my hands at a younger age, I used hemp cream a lot for healing purposes. The opportunity to try these products couldn’t have come at a better time for me so a shout out to Alex Silver for kindly gifting me these goodies!

A Little More About Hempz

Hempz are a beauty based company specialising in products that are derived from 100% organic hemp seed oil. Of course the seed oil has the THC taken out aswell as all of their products being cruelty-free, gluten free and paraben free. They offer quite a wide range of products including hair care, bath and body care, speciality products and even tanning, too! Another bonus is that all the products I’ve been sent to try out are in fact vegan friendly.

Hempz Fortifying Leave In Conditioner // £15.99 for 250ml

The majority of leave-in conditioners I’ve tried before have all had pretty much the same scent to them, I wasn’t actually expecting this one to have any scent at all but it’s actually really fruity and gorgeous. The product claims to style, condition, protect and control the hair – but what did I think of it?

I really felt like this added an extra layer of protection for my hair when drying it. I’m not usually one to use appliances on it other than on special occasions so I only really need the protection for using a hairdryer. Although it was a good heat protector, I had to start using some oil alongside it as from years of bleaching, I really do have quite dry hair. I need that extra something to keep it nourished and control the frizz. For that reason, I don’t think I could carry on using this product alone but I think it would be more than suitable for someone with a lot healthier hair than me. I will carry on applying it alongside oil though for that extra protection!

Hempz Lip Balm // £7.99 for 14g

I’m not going to lie, I really wasn’t expecting this to smell/taste so nice (everyone eats a bit of their lip balm, right?). From the colour and look of it, I was assuming it’d be quite an earthy or medicinal aroma but it’s actually as if someone has melted a few jelly babies and put them in a tube. I absolutely adore it for that reason, it’s super sweet and yummy! As for nourishment, I’d definitely say it’s much more of a lip protector than a moisturiser as it does mostly sit on top of the lips rather than sinking in. It does make them feel super soft and adds a lovely shine to them, too. I’d definitely repurchase this for the gorgeous smell if not all the other good things about it!

Hempz Milk & Honey Body Wash // £15.99 for 227ml

First things first, I am besotted with this scent. I’ve tried quite a few milk and honey/almond milk and honey ranges in the hope of finding one perfect for me (e.g. The Body Shop, L’occitane) but until now I’ve never found one that I really truly love. This is the perfect mix of sweet and creamy and I’d happily buy the entire range. I’d love to try the exfoliant whip and see a bath milk in it, too! This has shea butter, avocado and jojoba seed oil in making it nourishing aswell as cleansing. It lathers up an absolute dream in the bath/shower with minimal product but still manages to stay so creamy. It leaves a gorgeous subtle scent on the skin afterwards and this is 100% one I will be repurchasing as it’s so gentle and perfect for my irritated skin, too.

Hempz Milk & Honey Hand & Foot Creme // £7.49 for 100ml

As I said above, the scent is to die for and I’d say it was even more prominent in this product. Aswell as giving the fabulous benefits of hemp seed oil, it contains shea butter and coconut oil which we all know hold incredible moisturising elements for the skin. I’d say the consistency was of a medium thickness which makes a tiny bit go a long way but also means it’s light enough to sink into the skin relatively quickly, too. It makes the skin feel soft and supple almost instantly after sinking in which is one of my favourite things about it. Despite having fragrance added to it, this hasn’t irritated my hands at all which I’m incredibly pleased about.

So, it seems my first experience with Hempz products has been a clear success! I actually don’t think I could pick a favourite as I’ve been using them all pretty much daily since they arrived. This is for sure a brand I would love to try a lot more from. They have a few very intriguing ranges like vanilla plum, pink pomelo and himalayan sea salt and blushing grapefruit and raspberry. But to be fair, everything they have on offer sounds pretty gorgeous and from how beneficial they’ve been for my skin, I’d highly recommend trying any of it.

What’s your favourite natural beauty brand?

’Til Next Time,
BTB Xx

    I love hemp products as they work so well and often smell fantastic. I love hemp hair care as it has helped bring my hair back to life. The foot lotion and lip balm sound lovely. Thank you for the recommendations, have a great week.

    I’ve never tried any hemp based products – the only thing I know about it is it’s used in fishing (Aaron the fisherman keeps great big bags of the stuff at home haha! 😂)
    I love the sound of these products and I think we’ve got a similar taste in scents as all of these sound right up my street! Great thorough post with beautiful pictures as always lovely!! ❤️❤️❤️

      Haha no way!? I never knew they used it for fishing! It’s honestly such a lovely set of products and the milk and honey smells similar to the body shops vanilla pumpkin, too! Thanks Gaby ❤️☺️ xx

    I used to have eczema when I was younger but luckily it went away, until recently! At the start of the year I had awful eczema literally in a circle around my neck. It’s finally disappearing, but I’m scared it’s going to flare up again. I’ve never heard of hemp seed oil in the way of bodycare. I’m trying to be careful with what I use on my skin, especially in my hair and around my neck as it’s so sensitive, so anything with shea butter it great for that. You always post about undiscovered beauty gems and I love it!

      Hemp would be really good for eczema, I recommend you try some of it! I do love shea butter too although can be a bit heavy sometimes as my skin can get quite oily! Aww thanks Aycan, glad you enjoy ❤️☺️ Xx

      It is honestly a really lovely ingredient and so good for sensitive skin! Xx

    I have incredibly sensitive and delicate skin, so I’m always cautious to try new products. But I’ve heard really good things about hemp based skincare and this brand sounds right up my street!

    So thank you for introducing it to me! I love a good leave in conditioner. I prefer it to conditioning my hair in the shower because of the weight a feel it adds. Leave ins don’t seem to have that effect.

      It is so gentle, I am also cautious as I’ve had a lot of skin troubles in the past and the tiniest thing can trigger a huge flare with it! I hope it works for you if you try it ☺️ X

    I’ve tried a few products from Hempz, found it a little hit and miss if I’m honest. I do like the sound of the lip balm though, so I might give it a try x

      I genuinely love all of these! The lip balm is gorgeous, I use it daily now! X

    I’ve just been sent the hand and foot cream and I genuinely love it so much! Although it’s a bit thicker than I like to use throughout the day on my hands, it’s great for me to apply before getting into bed on both my hands and feet. I’m so obsessed with the smell as well and the other products sound just as amazing. Vanilla plum sounds like something I could definitely love, I can see me buying lots of their products in the future x

    I like the odd smell maybe it is just me. They work really well for hair and also make some kinder hair dyes which is less damaging then others x
