Beauty Quickie: Alchemy Lux Body Oil

 

WHO: Crave Skincare

WHAT: Alchemy (Lux Body Oil)

HOW (it looks, smells, cost etc.): 

The fragrance is a natural beautiful (but not heavy)  Ylang Ylang scent that is absolute heaven.  The oil itself is really light not heavy or (“coaty”) and absorbs well. It has a yellowish-green hue (similar to really good olive oil). The amber dropper bottle packaging is something you’d see at a really traditional apothecary with some really nice branding, Crave Skincare’s  classic “C “with a pink metallic “A” that denotes it as Alchemy (the other products in the line carry different center letters).

 

Price Point:

 

$48 for 4 oz

 

KEY INGREDIENTS:

 

Caprylic Capric Triglycerides (Fractionated Coconut Oil), Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil (Hemp Oil)+ Hemp Extrat (Aerial parts), Macadamia oil, Jojoba oil, Kukui Nut oil, Baobab Oil, Red Raspberry Seed Oil, Squalane Oil (Olive), Rosehip Seed oil, Lecithin (Sunflower Non-GMO), Essential Oil Blend (Elemi Oil, Cedarwood Oil, Clary Sage Oil, Rosemary with Sunflower Oil, Balsam of Peru, Cistus, Ylang Ylang oil, Vitamin E, Alpha Lipoic Acid.

THE VERDICT: 

 

This product is infused with hemp which like CBD has antioxidant properties that are great for your skin.  Combine the use of hemp with some other oils that I’ve used (individually) in the past that have natural sunscreen (Red Raspberry See Oil), moisturizing/anti-hyperpigmentation for brown skin (rosehip seed oil) and some other skin friendly properties and I’d say this is a winner. My only real gripe is you forget how small 4oz is when ordering, and since it’s a body product (and one I really enjoy) I’m using a fair amount during application, especially post shower.

Overall it’s great for the actual health of your skin (you will glow), and feel smoother and be moisturized without feeling greasy or any residue. It also has some hidden benefits due to the addition of hemp oil and helps with overall inflammation of your skin (and the muscles below). I’d definitely hope for a larger size in the future, but understand it that doesn’t happen since all the products from Crave Skincare including this one are handmade.

 Helpful tip: Use it as a bath oil to extend the use.

Overall Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Stars (really a 5 but the size LOL)
