Hempz Body Scrub

I have to confess that I don't exfoliate and scrub my body as much as I should do. It's something I tend to go through phases of and I only really start to pay some special attention to it if I am due to go on holiday. I can't deny that my skin always feels amazing for a good body scrub but I guess it's just one of those things that can feel like a bit of a chore for me, even if it is only once a week.

I was recently sent this Vanilla Plum Body Scrub by Hempz to try out and it arrived at the perfect time in the middle of Summer and just before I went to Ibiza. Receiving a new product like this was the kick up the bum I needed to actually work on my body skin care routine. 

The scrub itself smells so incredibly nice, it's been one of those products that I just kept taking the lid off purely to dip my nose inside and inhale the lovely aroma. The plum extract included within the scrub has natural conditioning properties which help to nourish your skin and leave it feeling super soft and smooth after using. It's enriched with 100% pure natural hemp seed oil which is extracted from the seeds of the Cannabis plant. 

I had no idea before using this product that hemp seed oil is considered one of the best sources of essential fatty acids as it provides your skin with the perfect ration of protein, carbohydrates, nutrients, key minerals and fibre. It's also incredibly moisturising meaning its a perfect ingredient for beauty products of this kind.

You will all be pleased to hear that this scrub is made from sugar crystals and there's no nasty synthetic micro beads inside, it's all natural and environmentally friendly. Hooray! It's also paragon free, gluten free, cruelty free, vegan friendly and THC free. In fact, Hempz are a completely vegan & cruelty free brand which means i'm about to go on a little shopping spree! I particularly like the look of their body moisturisers and body washes which would make perfect accompanying products to use alongside this scrub.  

After using the body scrub my skin felt so incredibly soft and smooth, I couldn't help but keep running my hands up and down my legs as they felt so different to what they had done beforehand. In the past I have found some body scrubs to be quite drying but that wasn't the case with this product which is probably due to the hydrating shea butter contained within it's ingredients. 

Looking in the mirror afterwards there was no denying that my skin looked and felt more radiant and glowing which has really had me thinking that I need to be scrubbing more often. It also helped to maintain my holiday tan for longer and I avoided my skin peeling which I was so pleased about as that's a post holiday look i'm really not keen on.   

Have you tried anything from the Hempz range yet?
