Every time winter approaches, my skin needs extra hydration as I have very dry skin. Hunting for something that smells good, has interesting ingredients and is free of parabens and other chemicals has always been on my agenda and this time I tried something new for my skin. I got my hands on Satvik Elegance Hemp Seed Body Oil and here is my detailed review of it.
Hemp seed oil is perfect for most skin types. The linoleic acid and oleic acids found in this oil is not naturally produced by the body, but can play a crucial role in skin health and anti-ageing. According to the brand, this blend of hemp seed oil with Jojoba and Argan oil works to seal the skin with a protective barrier to keep it from losing moisture. It gets easily absorbed into the skin without blocking pores and won’t leave the skin feeling greasy.
Floral & woody fragrance provides aromatherapy benefits for the ultimate elegant experience. It is hypoallergic; free from harmful chemicals and artificial fragrances. This oil can help to address multiple skin conditions including rosacea, eczema and psoriasis, acne and the signs of premature ageing.
Hemp seed oil, jojoba oil, argan oil, grapeseed oil, ylang-ylang essential oil, neroli essential oil, jasmine sambac essential oil, floral fragrance, bergamot essential oil, ho wood essential oil.
The oil comes in a pretty cardboard cylindrical box packaging with font in subtle golden. The box has all the ingredients listed and the brand has made sure to make the customer understand the use of this oil and how it should be applied.
The bottle is made of dark green glass which is good as it helps in avoiding deterioration and protects the therapeutic and aromatic properties of the oil. The pump of the oil is made of sturdy plastic and the amount dispensed in one pump helps you control spillage.
The oil is a blend of neroli, jasmine and ylang-ylang. The fragrance is perfect for aromatherapy that it helps you feel relaxed. Consistency is neither too thin nor too thick.
This 100 ml bottle is priced at Rs 1179.
In the winter season, my skin becomes extra dry that hydration is a must, something I become desperate for. Body creams feel good but body oils work better for me. I tried the Satvik Elegance Hemp Seed Body Oil and I fell in love with it. I have been using it for the past two weeks on moist, damp skin right after a bath. I suffer from migraines a lot so was a bit skeptical of the aroma, however, it worked like a charm on me. It is very therapeutic. It does not leave your skin greasy. It lasts until I go to bed so I certainly have had a good experience till now.
- Does not leave a greasy residue.
- Migraine-friendly fragrance (but it depends on what fragrance triggers your's)
- Environment-friendly packaging
- Comes in a dark, glass bottle
- Reusable, recyclable packaging
- Pretty packaging
- None for me
As per my experience so far, this oil is worth the price as I have used and bought oils which are pricier and last only a few hours. Full of goodness, I have certainly fallen in love with it and I have not felt the need to use body creams till now. Try it at least once is what I would recommend. But do a patch test before regular usage as every person's skin reacts differently to different ingredients, especially when it comes to natural products.
