Exciting review: Human + Kind All-in-one Body oil

Hi there guys!

Yes, I was kindly sent another product to review.. and yes I scared the postman with my excitement on receiving the package! Today’s product is from a new company to me, irish-based company “Human + Kind”. I’ve personally never used any of their products before but I have heard the name going around various blogs and I’ve always been curious to try them out!

I thought that before I go straight into the review, I’d give you lovely readers a little insight into this company’s background ( because I’m nice like that 😉

Here’s just a few short little facts to keep in your noggin’:

– They are an irish-based company…huge yay for supporting Irish-based products

– Their ethos is to creat “simple, natural and dependable beauty products that multi-task” …sounds too good to be true! :O

– All products are dermalogically tested- major bonus points in my books!

– All products are allergy screened and are suitable for sensitive skins… This is one of the facts that won me over most!

– All products are made from natural ingredients, free from paraben and other chemical nasties- good news for our skin basically! 🙂

Now that I’ve covered the background to the creators of this product, I guess I should actually introduce the product properly. As the title states, today I shall be reviewing their All-in-one body oil. Now i’m the kind of girl who is often (even though probably wrongly) swayed by first impressions.. and with this product, this meant, love at first sight! The packaging alone pretty much won me over straight-away with its almost retro/hippy-eque style. Now, as you may know if you’ve read any of my other posts, I have ridiculously sensitive skin, so when I buy/receive new skin products, I’m always quite nervous to try them out on my skin. I also suffer from eczema so I need to be pretty careful not to aggravate that as well! As the name states it’s an ” all-in-one” product so you can use it everywhere- hair, face and body. I have a pretty strict face skin care regime so I didn’t try it out on my face but I have used it on my body… and guys its UNREAL!

Like most products on the shelves these days… they all claim to do or improve, cure etc. certain flaws or ailments. However they don’t always fulfil these claims/promises! So i decided to investigate if this product lives up to its responsibilities!!

This product claims to be:

Non-greasy and rapidly absorbing: CHECK! – I was actually surprised about this.. being an oil-based product, I was sure that this product would be very oily and that it would linger on the skin for quite a while.. however the outcome was the complete opposite. My skin felt super moisturised and glowing just after one application. I will say though, if you do have oily skin, I would avoid applying this to your face.. as it could only enhance the oiliness!

  • suitable for normal, dry, sensitive and flaky skin: CHECK –  Well I can account for the sensitive skin part here! I had no bad reaction to this product whatsoever.. my skin loves it almost as much as I do! 🙂
  • reduce the appearance of stretch marks: UNSURE: I’m afraid this is something I can’t confirm as I luckily don’t have any stretch marks.If any of you out there have tried this on your stretch marks.. id love if you could let me know if it was effective!
  • highly affective for ageing or dehydrated skin: UNSURE: Again.. as I’m only 21 years old.. this doesn’t really qualify me for ageing skin. However, all I do know is that, the older you get, the drier your skin gets and a stronger moisturiser is needed to keep it hydrated and young and plump looking. This product seems perfect for this… but I can’t say for sure!
  • soothes and softens skin after shaving: CHECK I actually applied this to my legs after shaving and I have to say, it felt really nice and soothing.. it almost had a sort of cooling affect on my skin and I found that after applying this, any irritation that i would normally get after shaving (damn sensitive skin!) was completely gone…which I was amazed at!
  • helps improve appearance of damaged skin: CHECK: In regards to eczema, i can definitely say yes. a few days ago, my eczema flared up pretty bad due to stress.. I thought i’d try this oil out just to see if it helped at all. And it really did.. not only did it control the itching but after about an hour any redness was significantly reduced! This is a huge thing for me when it comes to products so this point alone has won me over!
  • remedies minor skin ailments: : CHECK: Again, I’m just going to say yes in regards to eczema. So if it works for eczema.. it will also work fabulously if you had any dry skin patches or anything
This Body Oil retails at just 14.95 yo yos and can be purchased online at http://www.humanandkind.com and from selected pharmacies and healthstores nationwide! For those of you looking for specific shops to purchase this yummy product… there’s a more comprehensive list of stockists on their website..( which you should all check out by the way…it’s cute)
 (Seeee, How pretty it is! Is it just me, that find this packaging reaally cool… and is it just me that gets so excited about packaging…. ha!?!)
 
Overall view:
Overall, I absolutely loved this product and I really enjoyed using it! After a shower, I actually looked forward to applying it to my skin.. as I loved the affect it had on it! The fact that it works so well on my eczema has won this product MAJOR bonus points for me! The scent is so amazing that I”ve actually found myself looking for other products that have a similar scent! Another great thing about this product is that a little really does go a long way.. On first look, the bottle looked pretty small.. and I was afraid that I would run out really quick.. however you really need the tiniest amount on your skin and you”re ready to go!  The only downside to this product is the price.. personally 14.95 is a bit steep for a body oil HOWEVER… due to the fact that it is a multi-task product and that you only need a small amount at a time.. it is cost-effective in the long run.This product is perfect for girls with sensitive skin who are looking for a luxurious body oil that makes their skin soft and glowy! Also a great gift for somebody! 🙂
YAY for another Sleeping Bootay seal of approval! 🙂

    1. Hi there! thanks so much! Yeah i really really liked it and I’m actually curious to try more of their products! 🙂

  1. just finished talking about oils in one of my discussion on LinkedIn. A friend bought an Ayurveda oil from Dubai that claims to renew wrinkles, dryness and tackle cellulite. unfortunately for her, her face broke out but it was good on her body. I love oils too…nourishing ones with ingredients that heals…so me and my group members are looking at OILS and why most FACES go to WAR with oils. If anyone is into nutritive facial oils here i would like to get some samples for Evaluation and review too. Good gist here my friend!

    1. Hi there!
      Yeah id be very similar to your friend.. if I used any oil based product on my skin, I’d break out instantly and I don’t even have oily skin really. Because I have insanely sensitive skin, I can only use products that are fragrance free and chemical-free. While this oil is chemical-free it isn’t fragrance free. HOwever, it worked a treat on my body, and I’ve been using it every day now non-stop! Thanks so much for reading and your comment! Hope you’re well! 🙂
