As you guys know, I love natural products, especially when it comes to beauty products. What so many people don’t realize is that the products we put on your skin is soaked up into our bloodstream! So I never understood why the products we put on our skin aren’t held to the same standard as what we put in our mouths.
I’ve noticed quite a few companies introduce CBD beauty and skincare products. I was curious to find the best skincare routine that integrated CBD in their products. Diamond Hemp sent over a few products that I was super excited to try out. What most people know about CBD is that it can be in an oil form and also taken in edible form, but CBD is also a great ingredient to include in beauty products due to its natural benefits. It’s known to be rich in vitamins A, C and E. These vitamins help keep skin firm and healthy, help stimulate collagen production, and help reduce signs of aging. Not to mention, they’re also known to help with inflammatory-related conditions like skin allergies, rosacea, eczema and psoriasis.
They sent over a lovely Hemp Butter Scrub which was a total hit for me. I love a good scrub and like anything else, when it’s natural it feels 100% better because I can use it in good conscious. Just a quick glance at the ingredients list and I already felt confident in what I was putting on my skin. Organic Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Organic Aloe Leaf Oil, Mango Seed Butter, Organic Coconut Oil, the list goes on. This scrub can be used gently on your face or on any area of the body. For me, I focus on my dry spots like my knees, elbows, and ankles because I know those areas need all the help they can get. I used it in the shower because it can get a little messy!
First impression of the scrub was that it smelt scrumptious…get it? Scrumptious Scrub? Okay. In all seriousness, the tropical smell was already a thumbs up for me. The product felt great while exfoliating and left a nice moisturizing after effect on the skin. The only thing I will say is that I wish the product came in a bigger size because I like to be generous with scrubs and if used daily, it will run out fast. But like I always say, especially when it comes to skincare products, I’d rather take quality over quantity so I can’t complain too much. This product sells for $49.99 on their website which is in the same price range as typical luxury body scrubs you’ll find in big box beauty stores.
After the Butter Scrub in the shower, I followed it with the Hemp Antioxidant Cream for extra hydration. Like the scrub, the cream can be used for both the face and the body. The smell is heavenly and it leaves a light residue on the skin before being absorbed. Nothing too heavy.
I was most excited to try out their Hemp Antioxidant Facial Serum. I just love trying new serums out, especially when they are natural! I applied the serum right after I got out of the shower to make sure my face was squeaky clean before application. My first impression was noticing how light the product felt on my face. This is always a good sign. There is nothing I hate more than heavy face moisturizers that feel more like a mask than a moisturizer. Once applied, the serum felt light and clean and after a few moments to soak in, my skin felt revived. My skin felt soft, but not oily which is a nice change for me since I typically moisturize with oil. Because the serum is concentrated, a little bit goes a long way! You really only need a pea sized amount. If it feels too heavy, you might have used a little too much. It should feel super light-weight and fresh.
All in all, I am a fan of these products and would recommend them to any friend. Like I said before, I will always take quality over quantity, especially when you are talking about products that are going on our skin and then into our bloodstream. I can’t stress that enough! There’s some things in this life that I am willing to pay more for, and one of them is good skincare products that I can feel confident about using. It’s so important to know what ingredients are in your beauty products, especially when so many companies are putting fillers and harsh chemicals in their products. Thank you Diamond Hemp for sharing these lovely products with me.
