12 CBD Skincare Products to Help Your Skin Chill Out
Over the past few years, CBD has been, quite literally, everywhere. Formally known as Cannabidiol, CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in the marijuana plant that doesn’t have any intoxicating or euphoric effects. We’ve seen it in drinks and chocolate bars, and recently we’ve been seeing it in lots of beauty products. Why? There haven't been a ton of studies on the topic, but CBD is believed to have anti-inflammatory properties and the ability to aid the body's—including the skin's—recovery. Here, 12 CBD skincare products to add to your virtual cart.
1. Myth/Magick Earth Oil 1000mg CBD
Founded by long-time best friends Ariana Jones and Denyse Walls, myth/magick was created to provide clean and effective products for all skin, especially people of color. This Earth Oil is a multi-purpose CBD oil with two ultra-powerful ingredients: full spectrum hemp-derived CBD oil and MCT oil. CBD is a hydrator that, alongside MCT oil, works to absorb into the skin and soothe stress and redness.
2. Prima Night Magic 300mg CBD Intensive Face Oil
Another fabulous face oil option, Prima’s Night Magic is packed with natural ingredients to work wonders while you sleep. Broad-spectrum hemp extract helps calm and smooth while prickly pear, moringa, avocado and kukui oils help reduce the appearance of fine lines.
3. Farmacy Better Daze Ahead CBD Moisturizer
Made with hemp-derived CBD oil and an adaptogen blend of reishi mushroom, purple ginseng and holy basil, this moisturizer provides intense hydration and helps guard against environmental stress without leaving any greasy residue.
4. Kosas Kosasport LipFuel Extra-Strength Lip Balm with Flora + Bast 50mg CBD and Hyaluronic Acid
This balm from one of our favorite brands provides extra-strength skincare for your lips, with hyaluronic acid and active cannabinoid compounds to hydrate, calm irritation, reduce redness and make your lips look more plump, soft and healthy.
5. Josie Maran Skin Dope Argan Oil + 100 mg CBD
Ideal for all skin types, Josie Maran’s Skin Dope combats redness, dryness and dullness with a unique blend of argan oil and CBD. Says one reviewer, “I am so so obsessed. I’ve never loved a product so much. This is the first CBD infused skincare product I’ve used, and now I get why everyone loves it—it helped clear my skin (acne, pores, redness inflammation) and it’s magical.”
6. Kiehl's Since 1851 Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate (Hemp-Derived)
Infused with cannabis sativa hemp-derived seed oil that calms skin and reduces redness, this Kiehl’s oil was formulated for people with oily- and blemish-prone skin. Though it reduces redness in the short term, it also helps strengthen skin’s barrier over time to help the skin protect itself.
7. Lord Jones High CBD Formula Body Lotion
We've written about this body lotion before and we're bringing it to your attention again now because it really has been a game changer for us. For starters, it's a supremely effective moisturizer that's rich but not heavy on your skin. Combine the hydrating powers of shea butter with the healing properties of CBD in the formula and there's not a scaly patch or sore muscle it can't soothe.
8. Truly CBD Acne Patches
ICYMI: Hydrocolloid acne patches are what every skin picker needs. These have salicylic acid and CBD to flatten a budding bump (you know, the ones that announce their arrival before they blow up on your face) while you sleep.
9. Canuka CBD Calming Eye Balm
This under-eye balm is one of few products that can withstand the moisture-sucking radiator that's blasting on full heat next to our beds this time of year. Warm a small amount on your fingertip before tapping it around your eyes. Though it feels thick at first, it slowly melts into your skin and keeps any dryness at bay with a blend of CBD, Manuka honey and vitamin E.
10. Herbivore Emerald CBD + Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil
Speaking of moisture, this clean face oil is like a green juice for your skin. Chock-full of hydrating ingredients like squalane, meadowfoam seed and coconut oils, plus skin-calming cannabidiol and ashwagandha, it calms any redness in your cheeks and gives you a nice glow no matter what the weather is up to.
11. I Pekar Tissue Repair Serum Infused with CBD Oil
OK, so this serum isn’t cheap, but it is a blend of highly concentrated ingredients—including CBD and hyaluronic acid—meant to target, correct and prevent cell damage. It’s the brainchild of celebrity skin-care specialist Ildi Pekar (who’s worked her magic on beauties like Irina Shayk and Miranda Kerr) so it might be worth the splurge.
12. Pure CBD Vapors CBD Eye Serum
This non-greasy, fast absorbing formula was created with anti-aging in mind, aiming to shrink lines and reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness. Per one reviewer, “This eye serum is amazing. Not gooky or sticky, it evaporated into my skin and feels light and airy. Love it so far!”
