I recently received a couple products from North American Hemp Co. to test out and review. One product of theirs I really felt was worth mentioning on the blog is their Hemp Husk Exfoliating Body Scrub.
I have mixed thoughts on this body scrub, but most are positive. Being someone who exfoliates a couple times a week and is addicted to body scrubs, I found this one to be too gentle for my taste. They call it “exfoliating body scrub” but I really didn’t find that it exfoliated much at all.
My three year old loves to try out all my different soaps and body washes when she’s in the bath, so I let her try this one out since it was natural, Sulphate Free, Paraben & DEA Free, Cruelty Free & Vegan. She has sensitive skin of course, so obviously she’s not crazy about the intense, exfoliating scrubs I love, like the Naturopathica Lemongrass Mimosa Body Scrub. Let’s just say that the North American Hemp Co Body Scrub is so not exfoliating, that she likes to use it.
An exact quote from her: “It’s not scratchy momma! I like it!”
Need I say more?! lol
While it doesn’t have enough scrub and “scratchies” in it for my personal taste, I think this would be an excellent choice for someone like Laney over at The Fashionable Gal, who has extremely sensitive skin and isn’t a fan of harsh scrubs. If you’re not accustomed to using scrubs and you’re new to exfoliating, this would be a great product to start with. Not intimidating at all!
It actually foams up and gets soapy like a body wash and cleanses skin without leaving it dry. I also like the light pleasant scent this product has. However, I think that the small amount of hemp husk in there that makes it a “scrub” actually makes this product less versatile because I could wash my whole body with it and use it as bubble bath and maybe even shampoo, if it didn’t have the hemp husk in there.
If you have sensitive skin, don’t usually use a body scrub or you are new to exfoliating, then this would be a great product for you!
Price: $9.99 (9.3oz bottle)
