My thoughts on the DWIRA Hemp Superfood Face Oil
As I mentioned previously, I love the packaging of this face oil. It’s fun, colourful and doesn’t look overly clinical. I can definitely see the African influence in DWIRA’s packaging, which makes it stand out in my skincare collection. Awesome.
This bottle is 15ml, but the oil was truly filled right up to the top. I’ve bought facial oils before where they’re not filled to the top, so I appreciate this.
The Hemp Oil is a vibrant yellow-green shade. It’s also quite thick and gloopy oil. I normally use 3-4 drops, spread the oil out between both palms evenly, and apply to my face. As the oil is thick, I was worried that it might be too rich for my normal/oily skin or that it wouldn’t absorb quickly. However, I can confirm that this oil absorbs quickly into the skin and is surprisingly very lightweight.
My favourite thing about the DWIRA Hemp Superfood Face Oil is how radiant it makes my skin looks. It reminds me of the OSKIA Super-C Capsules in that on application, your skin instantly looks glowy. Dewy skin is so popular at the minute and I love how healthy this oil makes my skin look.
It’s also very hydrating and nourishing. My skin has felt a little dehydrated recently and this facial oil has worked a treat. I particularly think people with drier skin would appreciate this product!
The only thing I’m not a huge fan of is the smell. It’s definitely due to the hemp seed oil, which smells quite… leafy? It’s pretty overpowering, but there’s not too much you can do as that’s just how hemp seed oil smells. When I’ve read reviews of this product, though, people seem to love the smell, so it’s probably just me lol!
All in all, I’m really impressed with the DWIRA Hemp Superfood Face Oil. It’s ideal for adding moisture and a healthy glow to the skin.
Where to buy
The Hemp Superfood Face Oil costs £25 for 15ml and you can purchase it directly from DWIRA.
I’d definitely recommend checking out the products from this wonderful, vegan and black-owned skincare brand.
I’m really impressed with this hemp facial oil. Lightweight, absorbent, nourishing and gives a serious glow. You don’t need much product to instantly feel like your skin is moisturised. Plus, the packaging is fantastic.
