I received this sample free from an Ulta purchase. This is a nice, lightweight moisturizer that sinks in quickly, and is not sticky at all. The packaging describes it as “enriched with 100% Pure Natural Hemp seed oil and blended with natural extracts to provide dramatic skin hydration and nourishment to help improve the health and condition of skin.”
The only downside was that the smell, which the package describes as “fresh breezy floral, strawberry, and banana” mostly just smelled like excessively sweet banana to me, a scent which I detest. I have a slight cold, too, which usually affects my sense of smell, but it did not with this product.
Bottom line: If you enjoy the scent of bananas, and are looking for a lightweight moisturizer, go ahead and check it out. If you are at all sensitive to the scent of bananas, this is a no-go.
This is available at Ulta here at $23 for 17 oz

Today, I went out for a bit and went to Sephora, Bath & Body Works, and Jo-Ann’s. First, at Sephora I got my birthday present. This included samples of Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara and Watt’s Up Highlighter.

Next, I went to Bath &Body Works, where I purchased a mini lotion in Carried Away and a rosebud salve, which I’ve never used before.

Finally, I went to Jo-Ann’s, where I purchased a set of brushes. I will use this for detailed nail art.
