CBD is a phytocannabinoid derived from the cannabis sativa plant, and while it won’t get you high it still has some noteworthy physiological effects. There are already many medicinal claims made for CBD (and some of them proven, even), so it’s no surprise that it’s starting the show up in skin care! We’ve listed some of the best CBD oil skincare products that are already available on the market and that have proven to work!
1. Lord Jones High CBD Formula Body Lotion
It makes sense that the first product with CBD for skin at Sephora would be crafted for pain relief – this is one of the most surprising effects topical CBD seems to have. This lightweight body lotion contains 100 mg of CBD.
The pump bottle was designed to dispense exactly 1 ml of lotion per pump, so you know that with every pump you will get 2mg of CBD, making it one of the more responsible and precise CBD skincare products on the market. In addition to the phytocannabinoid, the cream also contains a cooling menthol derivative to aid in the skin-soothing effect.
Most reviewers recommended this CBD cream particularly for muscle pain, but those with chronic pain and migraines are also big fans. It is available at Sephora.
2. South Seas Skincare Pineapple Express Join Balm
If you prefer a thick balm texture for your pain relief creams, this is the way to go. This joint balm is made with beeswax, hemp seed oil, and coconut oil, and it has a texture similar to tiger balm. It contains 150 mg of CBD, so it is quite potent, although its thicker texture means it’ll take a bit longer to sink into the skin. You can order this balm from Dermstore.
3. MGC Derma CBD & Hyaluronic Facial pH Balance Toner for Oily Skin
Intrigued by the potentiality that CBD can reduce oil production in the skin, MGC Derma produced a phenomenal mattifying yet hydrating toner with a unique foaming effect. This toner hydrates with a blend of hyaluronic acid and panthenol, and also contains skin-brightening vitamin C. It’s a great choice for those suffering from acne, post-acne scarring, oiliness, and dehydration. Buy it from Cult Beauty!
4. CBD Daily Soothing Serum
This concentrated soothing serum contains 60 mg of CBD, and is recommended as an all-over product particularly for pain relief. It has a nourishing formula with avocado and coconut oils, so it might be a little heavy for some to use on the face. It contains a fragrant blend of essential oils, including peppermint to cool the skin and boost the analgesic effect. Pick up a bottle from Beauty Plus Salon!
5. Vertly Hemp-CBD Relief Lotion
This super-light lotion can be used anywhere on the body to give the skin a dose of relief. It contains skin-soothing arnica, moisturizing sunflower oil, a collection of refreshing essential oils, and a whopping 150 mg of CBD. It’s a fabulous choice for all skin types, but do beware that it contains a lot of essential oils, which might be too much for the face. It can be purchased from Credo Beauty.
6. CBD for Life Pure CBD Eye Serum
This CBD skin product is as good an eye serum as you can find, but fortified with some serious CBD power. Beyond cannabidiol, this eye serum also contains hyaluronic acid for hydration, vitamin C and licorice root extract to brighten, and cucumber extract to reduce puffiness. It’s great for all skin types, and packs a respectable anti-aging punch. You can find it through CBD for Life.
