CBD — the shortened term for cannabidiol — has become one of the hottest ingredients in beauty, popping up in different types of skin care, color cosmetics and wellness supplements as consumer interest in the plant’s purported benefits increases rapidly. While CBD might just be another short-lived beauty fad, these oils are full of good-for-you skin care ingredients, and possibly wellness benefits for mind and body. So, we decided to take a close look at some of the high-end beauty products incorporating these oils. Here’s are some CBD and hemp oil products worth checking out.
Peter Thomas Roth Green Releaf Therapeutic Sleep Cream available at Sephora.
Take it or leave the “earthy” scent of Peter Thomas Roth’s Green Releaf Therapeutic Sleep Cream, but according to many beauty experts this nighttime treatment is a high performer. It helps minimize fine lines by hydrating skin with a combination of cannabis sativa seed oil (a specific strain of hemp seed-derived oil), colloidal oatmeal and ceramide. There is a brief zing when I apply it (probably from the 2 percent retinoid complex), but you will wake up with plump, clear, smooth skin.
Cannuka CBD Calming Eye Balm available at Sephora.
No list would be complete without Cannuka CBD Calming Eye Balm. This cult favorite contains CBD isolate–a 99.7% pure form of just the CBD molecule—and Manuka honey, which is antibacterial and promotes healing. This frequently sold-out balm has become popular because it’s super hydrating; just rub a pea-size amount between your fingers before applying it to your eyes to warm it up and break it down. This balm will keep your under eye area dewy and moisturized all day or night, and fine lines and under-eye puffiness will be less noticeable.
