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. 🙂

Yesterday, I shared my new facial oil, which is rosehip oil. Today, the other oil (besides argan oil) is organic hemp seed oil. This is another oil that is supposedly good for oily, acne-prone skin. On the bottle it says, for all skin types. More about this organic hemp seed oil…

Of course, it’s vegan. The only ingredient in this oil is Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) Seed Oil. I’ve been using hemp oil the same amount of time as I’ve been using rosehip oil. Hemp oil has more of a distinct smell to it. It didn’t bother me that much. Smells like a bag of hemp seeds I have. Hemp oil did come from hemp seeds afterall, lol. The smell goes away. It doesn’t linger on the skin during the day. Also, hemp oil feels more moisturizing than rosehip. I think it’s the hemp oil that’s doing most of the ‘moisturizing’, since rosehip is more of a drier oil. It feels thicker than rosehip. It didn’t feel heavy when I applied it to my skin. It left the skin feeling hydrated, but it absorb into the skin well. Much better than argan oil I would say. So far, I really like it. With this oil, I hope it doesn’t cause acne either. I’m crossing my fingers because my experience has been good. Like rosehip, it’s supposed to balance the natural oils in the skin to treat acne. It’s also known to be anti-inflammatory. I know I have a lot of that ‘inflamed acne’ going on or when I breakout. Wish me luck!! I’ll report back soon! Stay tuned! 🙂

Thank you for reading. 🙂
