♥ The Body Shop Skincare- Hemp Seed Oil

The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector, Hemp Foot Protector and Hemp Body Butter Review

I've you have followed my blog for a while you might remember that I love this hand cream. I have mentioned it (here) before after it cured my little sister's eczema in literally two days. The only thing that really stand out in the ingredient list is Hemp Seed Oil, so that might be what worked so well, I am yet to purchase pure Hemp Seed Oil though!

The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector:
Results: As I have said before. My extremely picky little sister (9 years old) tried this in a Body shop store. The next day she said herself that it really work. Since it worked for her eczema /extremely dry hands I would say that this is definitely for dry hands or cuticles.
1st five ingredients after water: Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Myristyl Myristate, Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil (Hemp Oil), Ricinus Communis Seed Oil (Castor Oil)

Hemp Foot Protector:
Results: Made my feet smooth and soft, also on the harder skin underneath. I don't have dry feet so I can't say that it did wonders since they were already fine. I'd say this is best used occasionally for a nice pedi/spa day. 
1st five ingredients after water: Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Myristyl Myristate, Cocoa Butter, Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil (Hemp Oil)

Hemp Body Butter 
Results: Definitely a body butter for dry skin as well (or people like me who just always uses butters and oils). Keeps your skin smooth until you shower the next day.
1st five ingredients after water: Glycerin, Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil (Hemp Oil), Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Cetearyl Alcohol

Overall: All these are aimed at people with dry skin and they are all of thick consistency. Even the hand cream is thick like a body butter. The only minus (for some people, I don't mind it) is the smell. It smells, pretty weird. I wouldn't say that it smells bad, I am gussing this is what Hemp Seed Oil smells like. I paid £20 for these in a kit that came in a nice suspicious looking green box (with a weed plant all over it). A big plus for the boxes you get with Body Shop kits because I love saving them for storage :)
