It’s no secret that hemp products are having a moment. From CBD oil to hemp seeds, this cannabis derivative is popping up in all sorts of products. And while you may be familiar with the benefits of hemp-based foods and supplements, what about hemp skincare? Yes, it exists, and it’s amazing.
With that in mind, I am excited to cover the 3-Step Clear Skin Kit from the best-selling hemp skincare brand Dope Skin Co.
Read on to see my thoughts on these products.

Why hemp skincare?
Hemp is increasingly becoming a hero skincare ingredient for its amazing beauty benefits:
- Rich in Antioxidant properties and essential fatty acids, neutralises free radicals and protect the health and elasticity of your skin.
- Creates a protective barrier over the skin preventing moisture loss.
- Repairs stressed, dehydrated and dull skin, giving a youthful glow.
- Anti-inflammatory properties to help calm inflammation of the skin.
- Anti-Aging properties – Hemp can help reduce fine-lines and wrinkles as well as prevent signs of aging.
- Non-comedogenic, so it won’t clog pores and cause blackheads making it perfect for all skin types.
What’s in the kit?
First things first, these are the products included in the kit:
- AHA / BHA Exfoliating Cleanser

Who is this for?

The skincare bundle is perfect for anyone with oily or conjestested skin after a glowy, clear skin tone or those who are simply looking for a brighter complexion.
I would mention because of the active ingredients (AHA/BHA) the cleanser and serum might not be so suited to irritable or dry sensitive skin types. Rest assured Dope Skin Co does have other products such as the Antioxidant Botanicals Kit that would work on most skin types.
AHA / BHA Exfoliating Cleanser
You will want to start your routine with the AHA / BHA Exfoliating Cleanser. This cleanser is developed with five fruit acids (AHA’s) and salicylic acid (BHA) which work together to gently exfoliate, remove dull skin, unclog pores, and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
This cleanser is formulated with organic hemp seed extract (well, of course!), blue tansy, and niacinamide (vitamin B3) to nourish, improve skin texture and target skin concerns.
We suggest using an AHA / BHA cleanser about 2 -3 times per week depending on your skin’s tolerance.
AHA / BHA Resurfacing Serum
Okay, now you have cleansed. Make-up is gone, and your skin is already looking radiant. Time for my favourite skincare step – serum.
The Resurfacing Serum is also formulated with some of the amazing ingredients in the cleanser such as a blend of five fruit AHAs (glycolic acid, citric acid, lactic acid, malic acid, and tartaric acid), BHA (salicylic acid), hemp, blue tansy and niacinamide (vitamin B3). This wonder formulation penetrates deep into pores to remove dead skin cells, unclog pores and reveal younger, healthier-looking skin.
Another ingredient worth mentioning is Hyaluronic Acid which as we know, keeps retains moisture in the skin to keep it hydrated, glowy and plump. This is beneficial in restoring and nourishing dehydrated skin.
The final step in your Dope skin routine is to lock in your layers with an effective moisturiser.
This lightweight, fast-absorbing moisturiser is packed with superfoods and vitamins to help brighten, hydrate and protect your skin. It’s perfect for all skin types, including sensitive skin and safe for use during pregnancy.
Formulated with seven skin soothing ingredients such as vitamins E, B3, B5, Allantoin, Hemp, Green Tea and Aloe Vera, the Botanical Antioxidant Moisturiser helps to soothe and calm the skin. Hemp and Hyaluronic Acid work together to provide long-lasting hydration, while Vitamin B3 (niacinamide) brightens and evens out the skin tone.
This moisturiser is a great pick for those with acne-prone skin as it’s non-greasy and won’t clog your pores.
If you’re now looking to integrate hemp-based skincare products into your skincare routine, Dope Skin Co is a great place to start.
Their products are effective, affordable and formulated with amazing natural botanical ingredients. Best of all, they are all made right here in Australia.
