Last month, we connected with UK based blogger Andrea Cheong of The Haute Heel.
From Time Out journalist in Singapore to one of the London Evening Standard’s Top 25 Influencers, she is both an experienced blogger and journalist bringing the unfiltered truth about luxury beauty, travel, and fashion.
Having dealt with troubled skin in her youth, Andrea takes her skincare reviews seriously. She only recommends “no-hype” products that she truly values.
Recently she tried and tested the full Hemp Kit for normal to oily skin and shared her thoughts.
“When I discovered the counteracting benefits of the hemp plant, I was an instant fan. And all the better for me, as hemp seed oil (which contains no cannaboids or THC) is taking off in the world of beauty. It’s been heralded for its other properties too, it’s anti-microbial which tackles some causes of acne, it soothes irritation and has long been used as a remedy for psoriasis and dermatitis. Leading the way is Urban Juve, a new skincare brand hailing from Canada that’s landed in the UK with a bang. It’s already scored a feature in British Vogue’s coveted September’s issue.
As you readers might know, I’m a big fan of clinical skincare. Generally speaking, I find the ingredients to be more potent as its used by dermatologists and expert facialists. However, I’m always down for hearing about the latest in clean beauty, particularly if it’s pure substance and no-hype. Urban Juve is interestingly positioned as a wellness brand, leaning on the Ayurvedic principle that mind and body must be in harmony for a healthy life.”
