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. 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

  2. micheatsandshops

    Benefits-wise, I think it’s worth buying, but I am very particular about scent. If this smelled like Vanilla, I will buy it in a heartbeat! 😀

  3. Natural, for senstive skin, and with a funky name. Sounds right up my street 🙂
    Love Vicky

  4. I can withstand odours as long as it does the product is good for my skin. I’d stick it to night time use only though haha

  5. 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.

  6. Very interesting review! I’m curious about the texture, but it sounds nice. I’m also giving it props for being created by a guy 🙂 GIG

    • 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.

  7. I think I could put up with the smell if it really helped with the dry skin – but it may take some getting used to! Thanks for linking up with #TriedTested

  8. 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

  9. Nice review, very interesting!! =) Thanks for sharing =)) gig

  10. My girls would think it really funny if I bought them a cream called pure chimp! I love the name and the design on the jar 🙂

  11. It sounds quite good, I would have thought its for men too because of the name!

  12. I have very dry hands and hate creams that feel greasy. I might give this a try x

  13. My husband has very dry skin; mostly on his hands and elbows, I might have to buy him some of this!

  14. Sounds interesting. I like the idea that it’s made in this country! OH suffers with dry skin from the wood shavings at work – I will recommend this to him!

  15. I agree with you very much. A smell would be an issue for me too x

  16. I have extremely sensitive skin, and also have eczema. This looks perfect. I’m always on the look out for products like this.

    Thank you for sharing hunny

  17. I really like the fact that it has a use by date on it, just reading about it makes me feel a bit more suspicious about the stuff currently in my bathroom!

  18. I love the name. I love the fact it’s vegan! I love the fact it’s cruelty free! Awesome!

  19. Love the name and it sounds great but I think I might be put off by the smell too – I know it’s shallow but I do like a cream to smell nice too.

  20. Fabulous name! It’s great having a product so environmentally friendly and I love the ‘use by’ date, makes sense really.

  21. winegumsx

    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

  22. I suffer from dry skin alot so may test this one out!

  23. 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

  24. 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

  25. Ooh I haven’t heard of this before. I imagine the grains are naturally forming from the wax and disappear when you rub because they melt at body temp. Would be interested to try it.

  26. I haven’t heard about this cream yet…but the name itself sounds interesting 🙂 Probably a good one to try 🙂

  27. I love that it’s vegan, but I agree, scent can have a big affect. I might give this a try though since it sounds like a lovely product. ❤ GIGLove

  28. super chimp is a really cute name ❤ I have a dry skin, i might try this but i think this product is not available in my country..

  29. OMG that sounds like a dream cream machine! I love how its formulated with wonderful natural stuff. 🙂

  30. super cream after super man 😛 it sounds nice … i would have loved it if it had vanilla scent :/

  31. I agree.. The name does have a funny ring to it haha. But this still looks like a product worth trying. Great post! 🙂

  32. Nice review! Never heard of the brand before but it sounds promising 😀

  33. 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!

  34. Ileana

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

  36. hahaha love the name – looks like a great product – great pos – giglove – http://www.carolinefashionstyling.com

  37. it looks so soft and creamy. I think this is great especially in this period of the year. Great review.

  38. have never heard of this before but this seems to be an interesting product..too bad about the smell though

  39. i wouldnt mind trying this out on my arms and legs as they are dry nowadays. i would wear this at night regarding the smell

  40. I am sensitive about cosmetics and skin care so sad that this smells oily!

  41. Ari

    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!

  42. Del

    Works for me! Dislike that it’s vegan but so was Hitler.

  43. 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?
