Holy moly it's a Wholly Hemp review! Was that cheesy? I don't mind a bit of cheesiness once in a while. Hehehe. I was excited to receive this little care package courtesy of Wholly Hemp* Natural Skin Care. I'm a fan of hemp & what it can do. Plus, I was really intrigued that 25% of their profits are donated to provide micro-loans to women in developing countries like Malawi, Zambia, Tanzania, & Uganda so that they can establish their own self-sustaining businesses. Awesome!

I received 2 bars of soothing soap, 2 jars of moisturizing cream, & 2 lip balms. That's 6 items total (in case you haven't taken math in a while). I really liked the simple packaging. Everything was wrapped in brown paper which makes it ideal to recycle. I like the idea of minimal waste. Plus, these items are not tested on animals. That's always a very good thing! Animal testing is horrid.

I received the Euphoric Eucalyptus & Secret Falls Soothing Soaps. These pH-balanced cleansers each retail at $5 & comes as a 4 oz. bar. Euphoric Eucalyptus is a fresh eucalyptus scent & Secret Falls is a calming blend of lavender, lemongrass, & juniper berries. You can utilize these as a body wash, facial cleanser, or shampoo. Both of these genuinely rock! They smell heavenly. I'm honestly thrilled at how much they lather. The scents are gender-neutral, so my boyfriend can enjoy them as well.

The Lavender Moisturizing Cream is my ultimate favorite product from this lot. The ingredients are completely minimal: shea butter, hemp seed oil, sunflower oil, lavender oil, & rosemary seed extract. In the jar, the cream is relatively solid. I say "relatively" because it's been hot, so it causes the oils to melt slightly. It blends perfectly on the skin & leaves you moisturized. It claims that it's 12-hour moisture, but I definitely wouldn't say it lasts that long. The orange one smells kind of like those chocolate oranges wrapped in foil which is not a bad thing. These are 1.5 oz. & $5 each.

Out of these two, I prefer the Peppermint Lip Balm. It's refreshing & cooling. I've never had an orange flavored lip balm, but it's better than I imagined. The balms are lanolin free & packaged in recyclable tubes with recycled paper. These do contain beeswax, so they are not vegan! The Wholly Hemp lip balms leave you with a slight sheen & they retail for $3.

Overall, I really enjoyed this brand. I would absolutely purchase the moisturizing creams again.  I'd love to test out other scents like the Geranium Rose. Everything is reasonably priced, so your wallet doesn't have to feel much pain. I highly recommend any & all of these products.
