My boyfriend, David, is legit obsessed with hemp based products. He swears by his hemp lip balm from The Body Shop – he actually has 5 of them, y’know for just incase they stop selling it. So due to him I’ve tried a bunch of hemp based products and I’m always so impressed by them. So when I saw Hempz Beauty on Instagram, I knew I had to give them a try.
Hempz Beauty have a gorgeous Instagram feed – their products are just made to be photographed. All their products are paraben free, gluten free and made from Hemp (but THC drug free!). They are even Peta certified, so you can be sure no furry 4 legged creatures were harmed to create these.I decided to give the Pomegranate Daily Herbal Moisturising Shampoo* a try, I’m looking to get myself a sustainable and cruelty free shampoo and conditioner and Hempz sounded like a great option for this! The shampoo smells amazing, very sweet and fresh. Its not over powering, but the scent lingers on your hair even after drying. David loves this as well – so much so that he’s essentially claimed it as his own. We’ve both been using it for awhile and it shows no sign of running out any time soon, so value for money here is brilliant!
Consistency wise, I find the consistency to not be the same as with other shampoos I’ve used. It’s a lot thicker than other shampoos, however I find that it lathers sooo much better than other shampoos I’ve used – and I don’t find I need to use as much.
The Pomegranate shampoo hydrates and shines, gently cleanses and helps to preserve colour treated hair. My hair is dyed but its near enough my natural shade so this shampoo was picked purely due to the fact that I liked the sound of the scent. I’m wanting to get a few other scents from Hempz shampoo range and also give their conditioners a try too! Next I decided to give the Hempz Pomegranate Sugar Body Scrub* a try. This smells just like the shampoo does – so when its rubbed all over your body you end up smelling beautiful. I’ve used this when my skin has been wet and dry so I could give the product the best chance to shine. Used on wet skin, the scrub does a good job at leaving your skin feeling smooth without feeling super abrasive – I’d say wet skin is best for fairly regular scrubbing. On dry skin, it gives a really good abrasive scrub. I’d say using this on dry skin would be perfect for summer skin prep, done maybe once a week to get rid of any stubborn dry patches. Either way you use it, you’ll be left with skin that is super super soft.
Have you ever tried Hempz Beauty or any Hemp based products?
