Dr Organic Hemp Oil range


The Dr Organic range in Holland & Barrett has gone down sooooo well with our Beauty Bible testers over the years and months - and we look forward to setting them loose on this lot: a massive new collection within what is a brilliantly-formulated and seriously affordable range. (Which happens to be free from parabens, sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS), synthetic colours and petrolatum.) Each collection is based, then, around good, natural stuff - and this time, it's hemp oil, famously rich in Essential Fatty acids, vitamins and minerals, helping to hydrate skin as well as defy ageing.

There are literally too many products to list in full, but edited highlights include...

Dr Organic Hemp Oil 24hr Rescue Cream - additionally with borage oil, horsetail, hops, hibiscus, beeswax and other nourishers, this is a fantastically rich, protective cream that's perfect for the wind-whipped conditions of winter.

• Dr. Organic Hemp Oil Skin Lotion - similar botanical 'extras' to the Rescue Cream, above, but in a lighter-weight formula for generous body slathering, leaving skin very soft.

• Dr Organic Hemp Oil Restoring Hair & Scalp Treatment - a leave-in treatment mousse which is said to stimulate hair growth and reduce loss. We'd need to put that to the test (and we will, we will!) - but meanwhile, it definitely leaves hair feeling thicker and full of life, with great volume. (The whole haircare collection is worth checking out.)

13 treats from (literally) top to toe, in all - and if you bought the whole shebang, you'd still have plenty of change from £100.
