Amazing Hemp Body Care at The Body Shop
This is the time of the year, at least where I am here in California, when temperatures rise and humidity drops significantly…and the struggle with dry skin is on. I also suffer from a little bit of eczema (ok, actually sometimes a lot), and my entire life I’ve relied on prescription creams to combat it. Even with the dry skin alone, I’ve gone through bottles and bottles of lotions (and yes, even coconut oil) that all promised to cure this common malady once and for all, but to no avail, despite their high numbers of positive reviews. It’s been such a huge frustration for most of my life, and sometimes gets even more annoying when it’s time for a product review or outfit post photo shoot for either Denimology or my blog here, and my hands look dry and flaky and long story short, less than photo ready!
I’m sure by now you’ve all heard about the amazing benefits of hemp…from paper to clothing to consumables and so much more, with its sustainability being the high driving force behind the legalization movement. Last year I posted about Hemp Blue‘s new hemp jeans and hemp candles that also double as lotions, and I have been following them ever since. The hemp lotion candle really seemed to have some edge over all the other lotions I’ve tried, and so when I heard about this hemp skincare line from The Body Shop, I decided it was worth a try. It was on 4/20 this year, when they offered a 4 for $20 deal on their best selling Hemp Hand Protector (seen below), which is usually $20 a tube. I expected it to be pretty cool, but did not expect it to be as amazing as it really was! It’s funny, writing this I almost feel like one of the reviewers of one of the past products I’ve tried (omg, I tried everything and nothing worked until I found THIS). But, I’m telling you, within 3 days my hands cleared up, and the best part? They stayed moisturized even after a shower or washing my hands. Other creams never seemed to actually ABSORB into my skin. So, all that hemp hype you’ve been hearing about lately? It’s time to maybe listen up.
The Body Shop’s hemp body care line consists of a lip protector, body butter, a face protector and foot protector, the aforementioned hand protector and so much more (including an intensive hand protector, soap on a rope and a rescue balm) and I’m just about ready to jump on them all. I’m so excited to have found something that actually works to battle stubborn eczema and dry skin, and something that actually doesn’t just work immediately upon application, but for hours after it’s washed off! Here are a few of their best selling products below:
“Our best-selling Hemp Hand Protector helps soften and protect hands. It is dermatologically tested for very dry skin and contains Community Trade hemp seed oil.”
“The Body Shop’s Hemp Heavy Duty Body Moisture Protector is a long-lasting moisturizing cream that instantly melts onto the skin for intense 96 hour hydration and increased protection. This solid-cream texture and ultra-rich formula is infused with rich hemp seed oil and packed with essential fatty acids to leave your skin beautifully soft and supple. It is the champion of ultra-dry skin!”
“Treat very dry skin to an instant hit of heavy-duty hydration. This intensive facial moisturizer soothes, hydrates and helps protect skin exposed to the elements. “
“This heavy-duty foot cream works wonders on very dry skin. It soothes and rehydrates skin and conditions nails. “

Right now the Hemp Hand Protector is only $10 (down from the usual $20), so grab it for this amazing deal while you can! Everything else is under a “Buy 3 Get 3 FREE or Buy 2 Get 1 FREE” offer too, so stock up, I am pretty sure you will not be disappointed!
