I tend to spend as much time looking after the skin on my body as I do my face, especially now we’re going into the colder months. I switch to something a little richer and more creamy to keep my skin soft and nourished. A body moisturiser that does what it says on the tin and gives me all the feel of Autumn is bound to be a winner. It’s going to be one that I look forward to using every single day.
Hempz Milk And Honey Body Moisturizer is from their new Aromabody range and is aimed towards extremely dry skin. If you’ve not heard of Hempz before, they are a vegan skincare brand and their products are all paraben free and gluten free. They sell everything you need for healthy skin and hair, all the products contain 100% natural hemp seed oil and are rich in vitamins. You will be spoilt for choice from the delicious range of beauty treats which include body washes, moisturisers and lip balms. I first discovered Hempz back in January, I’ll leave the link to my review in case you want to find out what I thought of their body wash and lip balm.
You know I’m going to mention the fragrance first, right? Let me tell you it smells amazing, with a warm comforting feeling as soon as you massage it into your body. Ok, so it doesn’t exactly smell of milk and honey, it reminds me of that home baked smell that wafts through the house just after you’ve made a batch of muffins. I promise you it smells good enough to eat.
It comes in a sturdy 500ml bottle, which is a decent size and will most likely be enough to last you all the way through til the Spring. I’m glad it has a pump as this makes it so much easier to dispense to moisturiser compared to a squeezy bottle. It looks pretty good standing on my bathroom shelf, although I’m seriously thinking of putting it under lock and key to stop other family members from helping themselves.
The moisturiser has a thick creamy texture and is almost like a gel formula. As it’s quite a heavy cream I was expecting it to take ages to be absorbed into my skin and I’d have to wait forever to get dressed. To my surprise it doesn’t sit on the skin and melts in really quickly. Oh boy, this is one of the most nourishing moisturisers I’ve ever used, my skin felt soft, hydrated and velvety smooth after I had applied it. Anyone with dry skin, then this is the one for you, it even helped on the drier areas like my elbows and knees. And like I said, you get a warm comforting feeling from the delicious fragrance the moment you put it on, the smell does linger for a while but it’s a small price to pay for a little indulgence after your morning shower or evening bath routine.
Other products in the Hempz Aromabody Milk & Honey* range include an Exfoliating Herbal Body Whip, a Herbal Body Wash and a Herbal Hand & Foot Creme.
