Body Shop Hemp Body Butter

Claims - An ultra-rich, intensive and creamy all over body moisturiser with pure hemp seed oil! It absorbs easily into the skin, helps condition, soften and smooth the skin! Ultra-rich herbal-scented cream that moisturizes and conditions for up to 24 hours! For extremely dry skin!

Body butter is an intense moisturizer that can be used on entire body! They are specially formulated to maximize skin hydration! They are likely to be used during dry times of the year or when the skin suffers from severe lack of moisture! The ingredients contained in body butter often offer the skin both hydration and protection!

Body Shop is the first major retailer to carry a body care line featuring the benefits of super-moisturizing hemp seed oil since May 1998! Other products from the Hemp range are foot protector, lip protector, hand protector and face protector! Hemp hand protector is their best seller ever! As far as my knowledge goes, Hemp range is their permanent line! Hemp body butter comes in a 200 ml or 192 g or 6.7 OZ tub! Retails for 12.50 pounds! Body Butter tubs usually carry a color theme that coordinates with the fragrance! Sage green tub with a hemp leaf on the lid!

The product is obviously sage green in color! Consistency is very creamy! First thoughts! As mentioned earlier, this works wonders for dry to extremely dry skin! How will you react to products not meant for your skin type? It might be the same with Hemp range! Fortunately, I dont fall under Hemp category! I wanted to make the best use of the product, so I did work hard! But, its easy to work with! Not to mention, it is so damn hydrating! Leaves your skin skin sheeny shiny! Visibly soft!

Hemp Heroes!

Apply the moisturizer on damp skin! It helps lock the moisturizer better! Fragrance? Like herbal garden! Sometimes, like incense stick! Sometimes, medicinal! Dont worry, doesnt smell like pharmacy! I am very choosy, but I liked the Hemp fragrance! Surprise! It should not be overwhelming, especially if you are in to herbal jazz! Staying power of the scent is above average! Whereas staying power of the moisturization is phenomenal! To maximise the skin care benefits, use together with other products from the Hemp range in a layering regime!

Key Ingredients - Hemp seed oil has an unusually high concentration of essential fatty acids that help repair the skin's moisture barrier thus helping restore moisture, smoothness and suppleness! Organic Babassu oil is nature's best, wonderful, light and non-greasy skin moisturizer extracted from the wild-growing babassu palm trees! Shea butter moisturizes and helps soften the skin! Cocoa butter is an excellent moisturiser that melts at body temperature leaving the skin feeling soft and silky smooth!

Ingredients - Aqua, Cannabis sativa, Butyrospermum parkii, Cyclomethicone, Theobroma cacao, Glycerin, Orbignya oleifera, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Lanolin Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Parfum, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Xanthan Gum, Benzyl Alcohol, Disodium EDTA, Tocopherol, Evernia furfuracea, Talc, Limonene, Citronellol, Sodium Hydroxide, Geraniol, Linalool, Citral.

P.S - Lately, my blog has been flooded with Body Shop products! If at all you consider my reviews, please dont get confused not knowing what to invest on! Its a trial to introduce the product to you, just in case if you are not aware! Fragrances are personal! Some people swear by the Sweet Lemon range whereas some people find that smell like Lemon-flavored toilet cleaner! How tempting the pictures and reviews might be, try the product in store for yourself! Kindly ignore if you are exhausted reading my reviews! Couple of weeks, at least!

    I love the scent of these fabulous moisturizers. I have to say that they blend well with my own scent and it is quite plesant.
