Pure Chimp Review, serious monkey business

Hi Guys! 
Today I'm going to be reviewing a product I received a little while ago from a company called Pure Chimp (

The company was set up in 2013 to help people with various skin problems and they even feature a Top Tips section on the site for targeted advice to help alongside the cream. The graphics on the site are super cute and feature little monkeys as well which I liked! I also noted the banana as the dot on the "I" in chimp which works well in the logo.

 The cream I am reviewing is a completely natural, handmade and vegan super cream for those of us with sensitive/dry/itchy/red/sunburnt skin. Sounds good hey? 

So let's take a look at the packaging, it's a simple black pot (bigger than the usual moisturiser pots I have) with the Purechimp branding. The ingredients are simply the below:

  • Hemp Seed Wax
  • Safflower Oil
  • Sunflower Oil
  • Hemp Seed Oil
  • Lavender OIl
  • Wheatgerm Oil

Retail Price £15 for 120ml or £10 for 60ml. This may seem a little high but you only need a small amount so it lasts for ages! I've had it a few months and it's still half full.

I found the cream application to be deeply moisturising and it worked wonders on the dry patches I can never seem to shift, which were gone within a couple of weeks. *Tip: good for your elbows!!* The consistency itself is thick but it isn't heavy or greasy and it glides onto the skin and sinks in nice and easily. It's reassuring that the ingredients are all natural as my skin can be quite sensitive and prone to breakouts when using products for the first time

I have to say I am really pleased overall with this product and will definitely continue using it for problem areas until it runs out. This is definitely a quality product that does exactly what it says on the tin!

How do you treat dry skin or problem areas? I'd love to hear your tips!

Thanks for reading, love Sally X



  1. I have sensitive skin, so I try to be careful with it. I normally use the skin products from Avene, but this cream seems really good. Think I will have to go and take a look. I tend to get dry skin in winter, especially on my forehead. I exfoliate my skin approx once to twice a week. I use a cleaner the rest of the week and a moisturiser and eye cream every night. xx

  2. I tend to have very dry skin it seems imma have to give that alittle try.
    Great post! ^.^
