Here’s my update on Organic Hemp Seed Oil. So I stopped using it a while ago. Yeah, I know. 😟 I really wanted hemp oil to work, but it didn’t. Turns out that hemp oil is too thick and oily for my skin type. The oil felt heavy and sat on my skin every time I used it. It just didn’t absorb into my skin. At times, it made my skin feel itchy too. Once I stopped using it as a facial moisturizer, I started to incorporate it into my body skin care routine as a body oil. Yes, it felt pretty heavy and thick on my body too. I’m really just trying to use all the oil up. Don’t want to waste it. I also used it as a cleansing oil/makeup remover for a while (before I started using an actual cleansing oil). It was OK. I didn’t find anything spectacular about it. As for the smell of the product, I thought it was pretty nauseating. I didn’t like it all that much. This is going to be my only and last bottle of hemp oil unless something about it changes my mind. I’m more of a rosehip type of person. I’ll do a review on it when I hit 8 weeks. Stay tuned for my review on rosehip oil!

Would I recommend hemp oil? It really depends on your skin. For me, it didn’t work out that’s all. It may work for you? Try it to see if you like it. 🙂

Updated Review: elf Poreless Putty Primer

It’s been almost a year since I did a review on the elf Poreless Putty Primer! Here are my thoughts after a year (almost a year, lol). Wow, my experience and thoughts have changed so much over time. So what do I think about this primer now?

I raved about it in the beginning, but my thoughts have changed since. I stopped liking it. I started to notice that it dried out my skin like all of the other primers I have used before. Along with the dryness, it accentuated dry patches, pores, fine lines, and wrinkles. My foundation looked more, extra dry on my skin with the primer underneath. The fact that it left my skin dry made my skin itchy. Not only that, it irriated my skin to the point that it clogged my pores. Yes, I removed my makeup and the primer properly and thoroughly. I still ended up with clogged pores. If I had active pimples, the primer would make them swell and enlarge. I truly believe the culprit is the elf Poreless Putty Primer. I’ve learned that my skin doesn’t do well with heavy silicone-based face makeup and skincare. It just doesn’t work for me. My skin hates it because it feels like my skin is being wrapped in saran wrap. I’m not saying I can’t use makeup and skincare with silicones. Some of my makeup and skincare contains silicones. If silicones is high up on the list of ingredients, it’s usually a no-go. I haven’t noticed a difference with my makeup when I use a primer and when I don’t. It didn’t make my makeup look smoother, last longer, or better looking. I think I’m better off not priming my face. The elf Poreless Putty Primer has been highly raved by many people, but it didn’t work out for me in the end. I still have a jar of product left. Oh well. Moving on…
