Review: The Inkey List Hemp Moisturiser
What is it?: A lightweight moisturiser made from Hemp (oil-based).
Description: ‘Rich yet lightweight and packed with omega 3 and 6 fatty acids’. This rich cream helps wrap dry into nourishing moisture with hemp oil while antioxidant green tea extract helps protect the skin from environmental aggressors. Reduces dryness and flakiness. Leaves the skin
Good for: I honestly think all skin types i.e. from oily to dry as it’s not oily and doesn’t leave an oily residue. I think even sensitive skins would like this.
Packaging: Screw-cap packaging – not my favourite, much prefer a flip cap. (I find screw tops quite fiddly)
Directions: ”Use in the AM and PM on cleansed skin after toners and serums. On cleansed skin apply a pea-sized amount and gently massage into the face and neck.”
How I use it: I apply this at the end of my routine (just before SPF if it’s the AM).
Key Ingredients: Hemp (Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil) – this is emollient. Also contains Glycerin which is ”skin-identical”, Green Tea Leaf Extract (antioxidant and soothing), as well as coconut oil (emollient)
I know some people are iffy about the use of coconut oil, so I thought that I would flag up that this product contains it!

Thoughts: I think it’s the Coconut oil in here which makes this product very lightweight and ‘spreadable’ it definitely reminds me of coconut oil that’s melted into a pan. So it’s not heavy or pore-clogging, but it’s got a similar texture.
Texture: This feels like an oil-based cream. It’s lightweight, absorbs into the skin fast and it feels like I’m not wearing moisturiser when I’m wearing it which I like!
Can you tell it looks like melted butter? Not Shea butter (thick and heavy) – but a room temperature, melted butter that’s perfect for spreading on the skin without tugging.
