If you haven’t seen the acronym CBD, then you must have been living under a rock. Dubbed the ‘holy grail’of well-being, Cannabidiol (CBD), a compound found in the cannabis plant, has recently burst onto the beauty scene in a multitude of forms.
From cleansers and oils, to moisturisers, face masks and even fake tan, CBD can now be found in pretty much any skincare product you can think of. In fact, the UK’s CBD market is now currently valued at £300million.
We’ve rounded up some of the top products on the market right now…
CBD Oil Beauty Products
The night drops
An award-winning product, these night drops were formulated to aid skin’s overnight recovery so you wake to soothed skin.
Thanks to the 2% pure CBD, this oil claims to reduce skin irritation to make it feel calmer. The drops work to reduce redness, minimise fine lines, improve texture and clear blemishes in one hit.
Super Boost Night Drops, Votary, £95
This rich, velvety cream claims to protect, plump and hydrate skin, leaving it rejuvenated and more youthful in appearance.
It’s said to be suitable for sensitive skin, and as well as CBD extract, it’s enriched with powerful Vitamins A and E and Jojoba oil.
Vitamin Skin Reviver Night Cream, CBD of London, £37
Your skin will thank you, as this hand and body gel wash is a little bit of luxury. It should effectively purify and balance the skin without drying it out, thanks to added amino acids and glycerin.
It’s fine for use on all skin types, and especially sensitive. It can even be used for an aromatic foaming bath – just pump the product under running water.
Cannabis Hand and Body Wash, Malin+Goetz, £20
Promising to rejuvenate the skin and show off a naturally healthy complexion, this brightening skincare treatment has antioxidant-rich ingredients. It’s said to help calm areas of irritation thanks to the inclusion of omega-rich cannabis sativa seed oil.
It also works to minimise dryness and fine lines. It’s a lightweight oil, suitable for normal, dry and combination skin.
Emerald Deep Moisture Glow Serum, Herbivore, £42
Formulated with cannabis derived oils, this twist-up mask should help to thoroughly hydrate and balance your skin, all the while soothing any sensitive spots thanks to aloe.
Glycerin, a humectant, draws in water from the air to form a protective barrier for your face. And, kaolin clay is supposed to pull out impurities buried deep in your pores. It only needs five minutes to work its ‘magic’.
Cannabis Hydrating Face Mask, Milk Makeup, £21
Utan have paired up with Scots instagram sensation, Jamie Genevieve, to bring you an anti-inflammatory tanning water.
It’s said, as well as giving you a holiday-worthy glow, it calms even sensitive skin, reduces redness and keeps breakouts at bay. It can be misted on before or after make-up to top up your face tan. No need to rub it in.
