Winter skin, I always feel, is the worst skin. However tempting it is to forgo the moisturiser each morning, my skin never feels better than when it’s treated well. Despite the fact that I’m going to be swaddled in knitwear from now until mid-April, I’ve been on the hunt for a great everyday option which leaves skin looking and feeling soft and smooth. My current cream of choice is Hempz Milk & Honey Herbal Body Moisturiser.
Packaged in plain, quite utilitarian bottle, complete with pump, what this moisturiser lacks in glitz, it more than makes up in formula. Fortified with 100% Pure Natural Hemp Seed Oil, the cream itself is lightweight, and sinks into skin within a minute or two, meaning it’s great for morning use. When first applied, it does have quite a strong, sweet vanilla scent, but it dies down relatively quickly, so it doesn’t interfere with any perfumes I want to wear.
From the first time I used the moisturiser, I’ve seen a real improvement in my skin – it’s not greasy or sticky, instead skin is left feeling velvety soft, and super smooth. It tackles rough skin like an absolute pro, so elbows and knees are well taken care of – ideal if you’re looking to moisturise pre-fake tanner!
