What is Hemp?
Hemp seed oil is processed from the seeds of the hemp plant, also known as cannabis. Sounds illegal I know, but it’s totally safe (PHEW) There are so many health benefits from hemp seed oil. It’s a great source of omega-3 and omega 6 fatty acids, which are essential for health cells, nerves and brain functions.
Why is Hemp good for your skin?
Hemp seed oil is also hugely beneficial for the skin, as it adds a protective layer to prevent rashes, as well as being used to provide relief for acne. The fats found in hemp oil are really similar to those found in the skin, making it such an effective moisturiser. It also increases the elasticity of the skin and helps to revitalise dehydrated or dry skin.
Not only is hemp oil rich in vitamins A and E, it also contains minerals like potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc and calcium. It is high in antioxidants, which are elements that prevent or slow cell damage. Hemp oil is also considered an effective treatment for acne. It hydrates the skin and brings more oxygen to it, which makes it a good treatment for eczema and dry, itchy skin. Hemp oil can also help keep redness and irritation at bay. Over time, it can help eliminate acne by keeping the skin healthy and hydrated.

Hempz Citrine Crystal & Quartz range.
I was lucky enough to have been gifted two products from Hempz ‘Citrine crystal & Quartz’ range. The Hempz ‘Citrine Crystal Herbal Body Moisturiser’ helps to retain moisture and hydration, as well as softening and smoothing skin. The moisturiser has a beautiful consistency (not too thick and dries really quickly) and is lightly scented due to the citrus blend. The Quartz Dust gives skin a subtle, gem stone glow which is absolutely stunning, especially in the summertime under the sunlight! Containing vitamin C, shea butter and citrus oil, this moisturiser leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth, smelling incredible and GLOWING. Plus the pump is super handy, as well as being a 500ml bottle, so plenty of product for your £$!
I also received the Citrine Crystal Mist. I’ve never seen another product like this before, which makes it totally unique! The Shimmering mist of energized H20 ‘refreshes and awakens from head to toe.’ The mist can be used on hair, body or face- we love versatility! The mist has a light citrus scent, which smells amazing, as well as leaving your skin/hair/body with a subtle shimmery glow.
I am absolutely desperate to try other Hempz products. The quality, scent, packaging and individuality of the products make them stand out above any others. The Hempz website boasts a whole range of quirky scents and products, my next purchase will be the ‘Strawberry Limeade and Hibiscus tea’ products- dreamy! Have you tried any Hempz products before? Leave me a comment!
Lots of love,
products gifted from Alex Silver PR.
