Review – Pure Chimp Super Cream

Funky name, isn’t it? For some reason it immediately makes me think of a product destined for apes AKA men, but in fact it is not… Pure Chimp was founded by a man, but their products are suitable for everyone age 3+ 🙂

When you look at the label about what is inside the jar and how it was made, Pure Chimp stands out from the pack, leaving other brands behind.Pure Chimp Super Cream

No animal Testing

Suitable for Vegans

100% Natural

Handmade in the UK

Super Cream ingredients list: Hemp Seed Wax, Safflower Oil, Sunflower Oil, Hemp Seed Oil, Lavender Oil, Wheatgerm Oil – that’s it!

I have very dry and sensitive skin. I love to experiments with a lot of toiletries – soap, shampoo, shower wash etc but when it comes to face care I tend to stick with what I know works for me.  When I visited the Pure Chimp website and read their statements about the Super Cream such as:

  •    #1 Cream in the World containing hemp seed wax
  •    Unique blend of omega 3 & 6 repairs and nourishes your sensitive skin
  •    Quickly & easily absorbed by your skin
  •    Gently reduce inflammation and hydrate your skin naturally
  •    No nasties & naturally perfect for sensitive skin…

I was intrigued by it and wanted to test their claims. Yes, some of them are uncheckable by me, unless I take the cream to a lab, but others I could unscientifically verify by using the product. So I decided to give it a go.

My Pure Chimp Super Cream arrived fast and securely packed for transport.

Super Cream from Pure Chimp

The cream has very simple packaging – a jar with a straight forward black and white design which is surprisingly easy on the eye. All the relevant information you need is stated on the jar itself including full ingredients list, batch number, and use by date, application instructions, full company address and the obligatory website address. I am not a huge fan of creams coming in a jar… I normally prefer a tube or best a pump applicator, but hey we cannot always have what we want…

The cream itself has the texture and colour of heavy whipped cream with one small difference, once you touch it, it doesn’t feel smooth. It is quite hard to explain to be honest – it has a slight grainy texture to the first touch but when you actually rub it in it feels smooth… a very weird sensation when you first start to use it I am telling you…

After application the cream absorbs very quickly and leaves your skin smooth and soft; feeling very silky and with a healthy shiny glow. You can really tell the difference between which part of your body was doused with a cream already and the parts you have missed. It doesn’t feel heavy, which for me is a huge plus as I hate creams which you can sense on your skin giving that dragging down feeling through the day.

I have slightly mixed feeling about the cream. I love what it does to my skin, there is no question about it but I do have a problem with the smell. I know that we cannot have it all and sometimes we have to compromise in our quest for beauty; something has to give… in this case, it is the “fragrant” aroma given off by it. Pure Chimp Super Cream smells very oily… it doesn’t stink but it does have a very distinctive smell, which for some people might be a put off. For me, the jury is still out… I am leaning towards sticking with Super Cream from now on but let’s see how it goes… after all what really counts here is a final effect I can achieve by using it.

Pure Chimp Super Cream costs £10 for a 60ml jar and £15 for 120ml jar. You can also buy it as a part of a super combo deal which will obviously reduce the price even further.

So what do you think?

Would you be tempted by this Hemp Seed Wax / Oil based cream?

For now Super Cream is staying on my main “to use” beauty shelf 🙂

Super Cream Pure Chimp.

I received one 60ml jar of a Super Cream for free for review purpose. All opinions are honest and my own.

  1. Thanks for the review. I have just ordered a batch of the super face cream and the cleanser myself. My skin is “normal”, I guess. A bit dry in some places. Maybe more of a combination skin type. I might just do a review on it. Say, are you still using any purechimp products?

  2. I’m a little put off by certain smells in beauty products, but I do sacrifice the unpleasant scents for the effects! I wish I could smell this and see for myself, haha. Hope it works great for you in the end!

  3. Vanilla smell <3 Sounds delish .. Although I've got oily skin but for winter I guess this will be one of the to go product xx

  4. Sounds great! Im really curious about the smell though….I like vanilla creams 🙂
    giglove!

  5. i think organic product or product made frm natural ingredient always have distinctive ingredient…so yeah we cant have it all..but scent is a major turn off for me!

  6. Sounds interesting, I have tried the Body Shop Hemp cream and I could;t stand the smell, much as it was brilliant. Why don’t blogs do sniff tests? lol

  7. I love the name and like the idea of it, Normally I wouldn’t go for things that have a fragrance but I would certainly try it if it would deal with my poor dried out winter hands 🙂 x

  8. It sounds like a great product but I honestly cannot cope with smells I don’t like! I don’t think I would be able to use it, but it’s so hard to tell from a description rather than actually smelling it yourself isn’t it x

  9. I have very sensitive skin so I am really interested to read about Pure Chimp as I find that creams with natural ingredients are much kinder to my skin. Thank you for sharing

  10. I’m always on the look out for a good cream for dry skin, I really do suffer in the winter. I love the list of ingredients but I am a little put off if it smells funny, especially as I would use it on my face.

    1. When you touch it, you can feel small grains under your fingers, but if you rub it – they all disappear. I never had product before with a similar texture so not sure what to compare it to.

  11. I love the fact firstly its called PURE CHIMP (but its not tested on animals and does not thankfully have chimp in it) but also the fact its great for kids who we all call our little monkeys, great post thanks for sharing hun x

I love all comments :-)
