To Sum Up

Users have given Sweetsensation Therapy the thumbs up on the creation of this organic moisturizer. They like how it is non greasy, hydrating, contains an SPF 30+ and doesn't contain toxins.

I was unable to find any negative comments about this lotion, all the reviews I read gave it full marks.

This seems like a great product that could be worth a try, especially pregnant women who are looking to change some of their usual products.

The only factor to let this product down is the price as it does retail at $48 for a 3.5oz bottle, which is very expensive but if you can fit it into your budget could be worth a try.

Afican shea butterThe West African Shea Butter is 100% organic and comes in a 16oz container. Shea butter is made from the nut of the African Shea tree and contains a rich amount of irremovable fatty acid which makes it superior to cocoa butter and other natural vegetable butters.

It rejuvenates and moisturizes the skin as well as providing many other benefits like, wind protection, protection from the cold, sun, and helps heal wounds faster.

More Benefits of Shea Butter

Unrefined Shea butter contains an abundance of healing ingredients, including vitamins, minerals and proteins. Unlike petroleum based moisturizers, Shea butter actually restores the skin's natural elasticity.

Shea butter has many useful properties and has been traditionally used as a decongestant, an anti-inflammatory for sprains and arthritis, a healing salve for babies' umbilical cords, a lotion for hair and skin care, as cooking oil, and for lamp fuel.

However, the protective and emollient properties of Shea butter are most valued for skin care.

  • Good for sensitive skin
  • Good value

Hempz Herbal Moisturizer Review | Reduces Fine Lines, Wrinkles & Provides Long Lasting Hydration

Saturday, October 9th, 2010

Hempz Herbal MoisturizerHempz Herbal Moisturizer is devised from hemp seed oil to smooth and moisturize skin, leaving skin soft all day long.

The moisturizer also contains fatty acids, key amino acids, which help moisturize and hydrate. While shea butter ,ginseng and natural extracts soothe and condition the skin, it also helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

This lotion doesn't contain any levels of THC. I just want to take the opportunity to put any confusion about hemp to rest.

What is Hemp?

"Hemp" has been in the English language for over 800 years. It used to be used to make canvas, rope, fuel and paper from the 1600's-1930's. The Hemp plant looks similar to the Marijuana which is an illegal drug, this is why for a few decades hemp crops were removed from the U.S. Even though no one actually smoked hemp.

It also has very low THC levels which are non-psychoactive (don't effect the mind), unlike Marijuana.

I hope that has cleared the confusion between Hemp and Marijuana, similar looking plants but that's were the similarities end.

Users Conclusions

I have compiled the lists below from the opinions of the people who are using Hempz Moisturizer:


  • Nice smell
  • Moisturizing
  • Great value
  • Non greasy
  • Thick and smooth texture
  • Absorbs quickly


  • Doesn't provide long lasting moisture (one users opinion)


Water (Aqua), Propylene Glycol, Isopropyl Palmitate, Stearic Acid, Sorbitan Palmitate, Glyceryl Stearate, Peg-100 Stearate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Fruit, Cetyl Alcohol, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Triethanolamine, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Ginseng Extract, Glycerin, Galendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Symphytum Officinale (Comfrey) Extract, Malva Sylvestris (Mallow) Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Extract, Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) Seed Oil, Disodium Edta, Tocopheryl Acetate, Carbomer, Nylon 12, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Diazolidinyl Urea, Titanium Dioxide, Fragrance (Parfum), Amyl Cinnamic Aldehyde, Benzyl Alcohol, Benzyl Salicylate, Citronellol, Eugenol, Geraniol, Hexyl Cinnamic Aldehyde, Lillial, Lyral, Methyl Heptine Carbonate.

To Sum Up

It seems that Hempz moisturizer has proved very popular with male and female patrons that say its highly moisturizing as well as nicely scented.

However, one user thinks its an average moisturizer that doesn't keep skin smooth or hydrated for very long.

Most people using it think it is good value for money at $15.27 for a 18 fl oz bottle, (sale price) it usually costs $22, which is still a good price for such a big bottle of moisturizer.

Bliss FatGirlSleep Night Cream Review | Moisturizer To Rid Cellulite & Smooth Skin

Friday, July 9th, 2010

Fat Girl Sleep Anti-Cellulite creamBliss FatGirlsleep's is a night cream formulated to supposedly smooth out that unsightly "orange peel" effect know as cellulite.

Bliss say that the slenderiZZZe complex™ releases dimple diminishers and soothing lavender for up to 6 hours. Ladies using the cream have said they noticed a reduction in the appearance of dimples.

According to users of FatGirlSleep the fragrance of this cream is "divine". This cream is supposed to smell of Lavender, but while many people agree the fragrance is sublime they don't actually agree it smells like Lavender. As long as it smells good though who cares!


There are 3 important ingredients that Bliss like to list, these are:

Sacred lotus: which it says helps promote the breakdown of fat, reduces fat storage, reduces inflammation of skin, and tightens looser skin.

Red algae extract: promotes micro-circulation and reduces excess water.

Lavender essence: this is to give a calming, relaxing and therapeutic experience.

Like a lot of other creams this contains a variety of synthetic chemicals. So this might not be the ideal cream for those of you that like to keep it natural.

Prices start at $38 for a 6oz pot which isn't to expensive compared to other similar creams. It is said by some users to have a thick consistency that spreads well, so should last a while.

This is obviously not a miracle cure for Cellulite, that hasn't been invented yet, unfortunately! Nevertheless, this Bliss cream could be worth a try to dampen those dimples while waiting for that godly miracle to happen.
