News & Reviews
Although we love to talk about our products -- nonstop --, we love when other people do more.
"Overall, these products are wonderfully simple and effective. They seem to get the "less is more" philosophy without overwhelming you with too many scents, choices, and unnecessary products or packaging. I am definitely a fan. I compared them to larger brands of natural body care, and they truly win in all areas, including price. The prices online are beyond fair; and could probably be higher given the quality...but I won't dare suggest that! I will certainly be ordering products to use at our Fitness Outside retreats as complimentary guest goodies; the ideals behind the Hempstrong brand align with our own in terms of honoring health and sustainability for a greater community. I'm just struggling with deciding which I will order first!" - Mary Rosser of Fitness Outside
The products are very soothing. I have used the body cream on both my body and face following a shower and my oil cleansing method. I have loved the hand butter since getting Mason because as you know puppies like to chew and his nails can scrap too. I also developed some type of eczema patch on my wrist I believe after getting him (from stress/no sleep, and eating more dairy) and the hand butter seemed to help clear it up faster. Oh, and the lip care I adore. Maybe it’s the fact that Manuka honey is in it, I’m not really sure, but I want it on my lips at all times. - Mary Trenda, Registered Dietician Located in East Tennessee
"I grew up in a family of environmentalists. I don’t ever remember a time when I didn’t recycle; all my parents (mom, dad and step dad) worked for the EPA. Water was never wasted in our home and the recycle bin always outweighed the trash bin even before the city offered curbside recycling. Naturally, I’ve always been drawn to products that are made without unnecessary additives and of course that come from sustainable sources. I’ve always supported the use of hemp for manufacturing items, there are so many positive environmental and economic reasons it should be legalized! I’ve tried my fair share of beauty products that use hemp and this is by far my favorite. Not only does Hemp & Honey Plus use one of nature’s best sources of essential fatty acids (hemp seed oil) but they also mix in Manuka honey and a handful of other natural ingredients including matcha green tea, pomegranate, coconut oil and aloe. The perfect balance of these ingredients creates a beautiful light scent in the body products and natural, sweet and tasty lip refreshers and balms." - Andrea Whitt, Violinist for Shania Twain and Fashion Expert
"My love of organic skin care products and supporting local business collides! H&H Plus makes healthy, sustainable, economical friendly skin care products using hemp, honey and other natural ingredients. So far I am obsessed with their lip balms and body lotions. They smell amazing to boot!" - Emily Brunotte, Owner of ChampaignInTheRain.com
"The soap is probably my favorite product out of the line. It always has an amazing scent down to the last little nugget of soap left to use. I found it to be very cleansing, leaving my skin moist but porous. I felt that I could breathe through my skin again. The hand butter I loved as well! My hands take a beating with all of my yoga, strength training, and obstacle course racing. This always makes my hands feel soft and refreshed with every use. I love using it right after a shower as it feels like my skin is completely moisturized. Love! - Erin Jones, Fitness Program Director
"This Hemp & Honey Plus Vanilla w/ Aloe and Matcha Green Tea lip balm is one of the best all natural lip balms that I have ever tried. Natural lip balms either tend to be too waxy or way too soft. Hemp & Honey Plus has come up with the perfect formula for their lip balms. It is creamy on your lips, yet it doesn't melt or break off when you're using the stick. And the hydration that these balms supply is amazing! I generally have pretty chapped lips, and I honestly don't have to reapply this balm for quite a few hours. I love lip products where you can read, pronounce and know what every single ingredient is." - Franziska Weinheimer, Hiker and Blogger
“Throughout the spring and summer season I am teaching yoga almost daily on or by the beach. It is incredible and I love that part of my job, but it is also incredibly drying and damaging. The sun, sand, and salt do a number on my skin, but I am loving how Hh+ is helping me to repair it. Their hand butter is thick and glides onto your skin. The body butter is creamy, absorbs quickly, and leaves you feeling smooth. The lip refresher and lip balm are the best I’ve ever tried, it instantly quenches a dry kiss, and feels smooth and light, with a fresh scent. The bar soap fills your shower with a beautiful scent and leaves no residue on your skin. I'm completely addicted!! I love how the products are so moisturizing but feel light and natural, and you'll be obsessed with the smell of your skin! Pick up your skin care kit today! You're drying Fall/Winter skin will love you.” - Derina Wilson, Yoga and Fitness teacher in NYC
"In the super-saturated market for body cream, many are fairly forgettable. So it bodes well for Hemp & Honey Plus that just as soon as I opened and lathered on the company’s Vanilla and Matcha Green Tea Body Cream, I refused to let that little tub out of my sight."- Elana Ashanti Jefferson of The Cannabist Staff
"All in all, I am very impressed with the quality of these products, as well as the presentation – the packaging is just gorgeous and the branding is very professionally done. The ingredients are of the highest quality and you can tell that love and a passion for organic, natural skin care have come together to create products that do what they claim too, and are beautiful to use ;)" - Rachel Carr
"Hemp and Honey Plus Body Cream is a natural and luxurious body cream to pamper your skin. It makes skin soft, smooth and moisturized for the whole day. I am totally in love with its yummy scent. It is a delight to be a part of my skincare regime. It makes me feel instantly refreshed. It gets absorbed quickly without leaving a residue behind. Both the variants are awesome and I would most definitely recommend them to everyone!" - Megha Saraf, Beauty Blogger in India
