Hemptouch Review: Testing Slovenian Hemp Skincare


While I LOVE trying out new makeup releases and get excited every time I get my hands on a new lippie or the latest must-have palette, when it comes to skincare, I’m a bit of a one trick pony - sticking to the same old favourites year after year. However, when a Slovenian brand Hemptouch reached out to me, I just knew I have to give their products a go and put my test bunny hat on. Not only only do I have a soft spot for amazing business from my homeland, but they also bring something new to the table. Their products, most of which are vegan, are completely natural and locally produced from an extremely versatile and healing industrial hemp, also known as cannabis sativa. If you’re not familiar with the science behind the CBD oil and its benefits, I suggest you to check out this page. They explain it far better than I ever would. 

Medtem ko sem pri preizkušanju najnovejših šmink in paletk vedno v nizkem štartu, pri negi kože zadnje čase redkokdaj eksperimentiram. Vsake toliko pa tudi mene premami kakšen nov produkt oziroma meni še neznana znamka, kot je naša slovenska Hemptouch (očitno sem živela pod skalo). V testnega zajčka sem se bila pripravljena preleviti takoj, ko sem izvedela, da so njihovi izdelki poplnoma naravni, v večini veganski in narejeni iz lokalno pridelane industrijske konoplje. Če slučajno še niste seznanjeni z delovanjem in pozitivnimi konoljine smole CBD, hitro odklikajte semle


As my skin is quite sensitive and dry, I’ve tried out three of their products targeted towards irritated skin. Let’s start with the Oinment for Irritated Skin, the consistency of which was a complete surprise to me - it’s rock solid, much like coconut oil in its solid state, but melts upon touch, so you can easily apply it with your fingers. It doesn’t sink in completely, though, as it’s quite thick and oily, so wearing it under makeup or throughout the day in general is a no-go for me. Instead, I’ve been using it before bed, mostly focusing on my cheek area to nourish my skin and keep my dry patches at bay. It can also be used on the rest of the body, and after two months, I’ve barely even made a dent in it, so 50 ml goes a long way.

Izdelki, ki sem jih preizkušala, so namenjeni predvsem suhi in občutljivi koži, kakršna je tudi moja. Konopljino mazilo za razdraženo kožo me je presenetilo s strukturo, ki ni kot navadna krema ampak bolj kot kokosovo olje v trdnem stanju, vendar se ob dotiku stopi in lepo razmaže. Uporabljam ga pred spanjem, saj je precej gost, se ne vpije popolnoma in pusti malce lepljiv finiš, ki ni idealen kot podlaga za makeup, je pa super za suhe predele na obrazu oziroma telesu. 50 ml produkta je v obeh primerih več kot dovolj, saj sama izdelek nanašam na obraz že dva meseca, pa se komaj vidi, da je kaj uporabljen.

Hemptouch Nurturing Face Cream is also suitable for dry, sensitive skin, but unlike the oinment, it’s very much like your ‘regular’ face cream with a creamy consistency that sinks in straight away but still keeps your skin nourished. For my dry patches, I prefer the oinment, but I’ve been using the nurturing face cream as a day cream when my skin isn’t in need of extra special TLC. Before I forget (because I got so used to it), your nose will probably need some time to adjust to the scent of these hemp oil products, especially if you haven’t dabbled into the world of all natural skincare yet, but it isn’t intolerable or unpleasant at all. 

Negovalna krema za obraz je prav tako primernejša za suho kožo, vendar je za razliko od mazila ‘običajno’ kremasta, ter se hitro vpije. Za targetiranje ekstremno luskastih suhih predelov obraza bi prej priporočala mazilo, kremo pa za vsakodnevni, jutranji nanos - jaz jo uporaljam kot dnevno kremo. Preden pozabim, moram izpostaviti tudi konopljin vonj produktov, ki ni smrdljiv ali neznosen, ampak traja nekaj časa, da se ga navadiš. Na začetku me je po pravici povedano malce odbijal, zdaj pa me niti ne gane.

The Intensive Lip Care lip balm is my absolute favourite of the bunch, and one that never leaves my side anymore. It’s by far the best lip balm I’ve ever tried - beyond buttery, and has even passed the ultimate test of keeping my lips soft in extreme weather conditions. A week of hitting the slopes at an altitude where the sun is scorching, the wind is strong enough to move you up the hill, and the icy snow being thrown in your face is not such a rare occurrence normally leaves my lips in havoc, but this year, there wasn’t a single crack in sight. Thanks Hemptouch! 

Izdelek v katerega sem se naravnost zaljubila je njihov balzam za ustnice - vsepovsod gre z menoj! Zame je res najboljši balzam, kar sem jih kdaj imela, pa sem jih res preizkusila že nešteto. Všeč mi je, da je tako ‘putrast’ pa tudi učinkovit. Da ga res stestiram, sem ga zanalašč s seboj vzela na mojo tradicionalno prvomajsko smuko, saj so moje ustnice po enem tednu močnih vetrov, babje jeze in žgočega sonca na visoki nadmorski višini vedno v popolnem razsulu, letos pa sem jih odnesla brez ene same razpoke. Hemptouch, najlepša hvala!

In Slovenia, you can find their products over here on Zeleni dotik, but fear not, they’re also available in the UK on this website and even at Planet Organic! I already have an Intensive Lip Care backup in my shopping cart, and as an anxiety sufferer, I’m also intrigued by their new CBD sprays.

V Sloveniji so izdelki Hemptouch na voljo v spletni trgovini Zeleni dotik, v Veliki Britaniji pa na tejle spletni strani in v trgovinah Planet Organic. Rezerven balzam za ustnice je že v moji nakupovalni košarici, mikajo pa me tudi nova CBD pršila, saj naj bi pomagala pri anksioznosti, s katero se borim že leta. Poročam!
