Review: HEMPSON Skincare

Sambulabs1

It’s been a loooong time since my last review. Meanwhile, I’ve tried so many different products but not every skincare line makes me want to write a review.

HEMPSON Cosmetics (HERE) is a new Estonian brand creating organic skin- and hair care products using cannabidiol extracted from the blossoms and leaves of organically grown industrial hemp. The scent of these products reminds me of a strong herb tea.

Disclaimer: there is absolutely no risk of psychoactive reaction from using these products.

Also, I’m happy to say that all of these products are vegan and have never been tested on animals!


So, I’ve been using them for about 2 months now and I think it’s decent amount of time to realize how they actually work. I’m not gonna lie – some of them didn’t really work for me but then again some of them were the only products that helped my skin through those days when it was -15 outside.

To make this review more interesting – I asked my mom to try them out aswell. Because of the age difference and totally opposite skin/hair types, I think it will be more informative that way.

Me: combination skin with surface dryness. Long & quite thick hair. Age 25+

My mom: very-very dry & sensitive skin. Short & thin hair. Age 45+

HEMPSON Anti-Aging Serum (HERE) – They say that face serums are lightweight moisturizers that penetrate deeper to deliver active ingredients into your skin. To be honest, I rarely feel/see the difference when I use serums, so I don’t know if it is the most important step… I guess if you want to go that extra mile for your skin then ofcourse. This particular one has hyaluronic acid as one of the ingredients – so I believe that it has to have some good benefits that are just not visible instantly!

HEMPSON Face Cream for dry skin (HERE) – My favorite product from this brand! I didn’t have high expectations for this one but it turned out to be amazing! It has very thick and buttery consistency. When applied, it absorbs quickly to the skin and creates the smoothest canvas. I think it also works great as a moisturizing + pore filling primer. I think it’s because glycerin is one of the ingredients. My mom was also obsessed with it! Her eyes are very sensitive and there are only a few moisturizers that she can use close to her eye area. This was one of them! It didn’t make her eyes water and in general moisturized her dry skin very well! 10/10

HEMPSON Anti-Aging Eye Cream (HERE) – It’s their bestseller! Very soothing, calming and moisturizing. It felt very good under my eyes which can also be a bit sensitive to some of the eye creams. Before applying concealer under the eyes, it is so important to use eye cream first. Trust me, your concealer looks so much better on moisturized skin! This one also has hyaluronic acid as one of the ingredients!

HEMPSON Soothing Mask (HERE) – Especially it helped my skin during the cold weeks. I had dry patches, texture and overall my skin was flaky. It was impossible to apply foundation or concealer. So, I exfoliated my face, used this mask, serum, face cream, eye cream and let it all sink in for about 30 min. All this made my skin look healthy & hydrated!

HEMPSON Body Cream (HERE) – It says on the bottle that it’s nourishing and it doesn’t lie at all. Thick and hydrating consistency, very similar to the face cream. After applying, it soaks in quickly and doesn’t leave your skin greasy. Definitely worth buying!

HEMPSON Shampoo (HERE) & Conditioner (HERE) – These two just didn’t work for me at all. I tried them several times. I did like the gel-like consistency of the shampoo and the minty scent. It’s just that my colour-treated and extra dry hair needs more. However, for my mom they worked well! She said that after washing, her hair wasn’t tangled at all like it usually is. Also during these cold weeks her hair had been very static previously but this conditioner totally worked its magic!

I hope you guys found some useful information & I’ll talk to you soon!

3 CELEBRITY INSPIRED LOOKS

IJ99

As you can read it from the title I decided to recreate 3 celebrity inspired outfits. Usually the focus is on creating celebrity looks with much more affordable pieces. But I decided to go in another direction and challenge myself a bit: I created 3 celebrity inspired looks incorporating pieces from Estonian brand IRIS JANVIER.

LOOK NO.1

First look is inspired by Kourtney Kardashian. One of the It-pieces of this winter has definitely been an aviator jacket. It is such a stylish throw on to give your look that edgy vibe.

Jacket – IRIS JANVIER
Sweater – H&M
Pants – Stradivarius
Boots – Dr.Martens

LOOK NO.2

IJ95

The second one is inspired by the most-searched actress and future member of The British Royal Family – Meghan Markle. She has already made a name for herself as a royal style icon. As you can see she is wearing a wool camel coat which is such a classical piece and a must-have in every fashionista’s wardrobe!

Coat – IRIS JANVIER (HERE)
Collar shirt – H&M
Jeans – Levi’s
Boots – Zara
Bag – Celine
Sunglasses – Rayban

LOOK NO.3

This outfit is again stolen from Kourtney Kardashian. Leather (vinyl) pants have been such a big thing for the past year or so. I love pairing them with big chunky knits. Different textures definitely make the look stand out!

Leather pants – IRIS JANVIER
Jumper – Morgan
Boots – Dr.Martens
Sunglasses – H&M
Bag – Asos

SPRING READY WITH TOMMY HILFIGER

AaAaAaAa3

Hopefully soon we can pack away our furs & boots and get ready to embrace the upcoming Spring! Even though it looks like mid-winter outside right now, I already started shopping for the next season!

Here’s my first Spring look! From head to toe – Tommy Hilfiger. I wanted to create a chic yet comfy outfit that’s very versatile. I could wear this for meetings, events, lunch dates, city strolls etc. Because of the block heel, these booties are perfect for that!

I’m obsessed with the colour scheme of this outfit – blue, white, stripes, black with a hint of gold! Perfect match!

The star of the outfit is definitely this gorgeous Tommy Hilfiger duster coat. You can wear it with pumps, sneakers, boots & sandals. It is such a good wardrobe basic!

I really hope you got some inspiration!

LAZY GIRL’S HAIRDO

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

Remember like 8 years ago when it was all about the donut bun? It was the easiest hairdo that looked chic and put together with minimum effort.

Nowadays I rather go for messy boho style hairdos just because I like the volume and I feel like they frame my face in a much more flattering way. So I decided to share with you my favorite Pull-Through Braid that I discovered thanks to my babe Johanna. It is the perfect hairdo if…

1) you’re running late

2) you don’t have time to wash your hair

or

3) you just don’t know how to style your hair.


If you would like to see how I create this braid then keep on reading.

SUPPLIES:

Blowdryer

Curling wand

Rat tail comb

Transparent elastic bands

Cutrin MUOTO Root Lifting Spray Mousse

 Cutrin MUOTO Volumizing Mousse

Cutrin MUOTO Strong Instant Hairspray


HAIR PREP: 

I started off with freshly showered damp hair just because it looks much more presentable that way here on my blog. However clean hair is really difficult to work with so you want to add something that makes it feel less silky and slippery. For that texture & extra volume I applied some Cutrin MUOTO Root Lifting Spray Mousse just to my roots and Cutrin MUOTO Strong Volumizing Mousse to rest of my hair. Then I blow-dried.

… AND HERE’S THE TUTORIAL:


HAIR2

1. Hair prep done.
2. Curl your hair. Nothing fancy. Just messy curls. This step is actually not that necessary but I decided to go through with it anyways just because I think it gives any hairdo a better shape & form.
3. Create a high ponytail from your top layer.
4. Create a second ponytail under the first one.
5. Divide your first pony into two pieces.
6. Wrap them around your second pony and secure with an elastic.
7. Create a third ponytail under the second one. This time incorporate the ends from the first pony. Repeat the wrapping.
8. Repeat that until you have desired length.
9. The most important step: gently tug on both sides of the braid to make it fuller and more voluminous. Don’t worry about keeping it neat. I personally like it to look a bit messy. Finish off with Cutrin MUOTO Strong Instant Hairspray and voila! You’re done!

WHAT TO WEAR: Holiday Edition

Christmas is right around the corner and so is New Year’s Eve (and also my birthday)! That’s why it’s time to start thinking about outfit options because we all want to look extra sparkly during the holiday season.

Jõulud, vana-aasta õhtu (ja ka minu sünnipäev!) on kohe-kohe siin. Seetõttu tasub juba aegsasti hakata mõtlema outfittide peale, et mitte olla ajahädas ning leida end olukorrast, kus midagi selga pole panna.

I usually go with online shopping because of the convenience – I order buuunch of stuff and things that are not a fit will be returned. Easy-breezy.

Mina lähen tavaliselt lihtsamat teed pidi ning kasutan ära e-poodide võimalusi – tellin korraga hunniku asju, valin välja lemmikud ja ülejäänu saadan tagasi.

So, I put together 5 festive outfits that I would wear for upcoming parties & events. I seriously found some awesome pieces + many of them are on sale, score! The obvious part is that I picked errrthing from ASOS because it’s my favorite webstore since 2006. Their shipping & return are for FREE and the most important part – they have such a good selection of everything hip & trendy.

Panin kokku 5 outfitti, mida mina kannaksin eesolevatel pidudel ja üritustel. Päris mitmed asjad on allahindlusega, seega tasub kiire olla, et mitte ilma jääda. Ilmselgelt valisin kõik asjad ASOSest, sest see on mu lemmik e-pood – saatmine/tagasi saatmine on TASUTA + neil on tõsiselt hea riiete ja aksessuaaride valik!


Outfit I

1. Blouse (HERE) 2. Pants (HERE) 3. Boots (HERE) 4. Clutch (HERE)


Outfit II

1. Dress (HERE) 2. Boots (HERE) 3. Fur jacket (HERE) 4. Clutch (HERE) 5. Belt (HERE)


Outfit III

1. Blouse (HERE) 2. Skirt (HERE) 3. Shoes (HERE) 4. Earrings (HERE)


Outfit IV

For my Estonian readers only:

Paar kuud tagasi hakkasin ma kasutama ka Bonusway’d. Nii hea, et see viimaks ka Eestisse on jõudnud. Ma mäletan juba 5 aastat tagasi kui USA blogijad sellisest asjast rääkisid. Viimaks saame ka meie shoppamise kaudu boonuseid!

See on siis selline platvorm, mille kaudu e-poodidest tellides saad sa kindla protsendi raisatud rahast tagasi.

Olen Bonusway’d jõudnud juba üsna mitu korda selle lühikese aja jooksul kasutada, sest neil on päris palju e-poode, mis mulle meeldivad nagu Forever21, Missguided, NA-KD, Boohoo ja isegi Ebay.

Minu viimane tellimus nägi välja selline:
1. Logisin Facebookiga sisse (LIITU SIIN)
2. Otsisin “ASOS” Bonusway.ee lehelt
3. Klikkisin “Kogu boonuseid” ja see suunas mu asos.com lehele
4. Ostsin 3 asja ja mu arve oli €121.44
5. 2 päeva hiljem nägin, et mu Bonusway kontole oli laekunud €5.19
6. KÕIK!

Ma loodan, et see väga “müügijutt” ei tundunud, sest kui ma olen millestki vaimustuses, siis ma olen ikka MEGAVAIMUSTUSES! 😄 Katsetage järgi ja nagunii hakkate ainult selle kaudu tellima (või hotelle bronnima! Booking.com on seal ka olemas!)

Liitudes läbi minu lingi:

http://www.bonusway.ee/maarja 

lisandub igale kontole €3 boonust (peale esimese ostu sooritamist)!

Happy shopping, peeps! ❤️

Also, which outfit was your personal favorite? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
