Hello My Loves,
As I previously told y'all, I have had the pleasure of testing some of CBD for Life's products. CBD for Life is a female owned and operated company based in New Jersey. They have a line of beauty products and a line of health products, all of which contain cannabidiol extract (CBD). Their product line is great and very affordable - with all of their products being priced at $35.00 or less. I have to tell you that I have fallen in love with their Pure CBD Face Cream.
Hyaluronic acid, retinol, ascorbic acid, cannabidiol extract (CBD)
Hyaluronic acid is our best friend. This molecule is capable of holding 1,000 times its own weight in water so in the short term, it is going to make your skin look plumper and more dewey, which is what every one of us wants regardless of age. In the long run, hyaluronic acid is going to help reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.
Retinol is a form of Vitamin A. Retinol is responsible for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time because it increases cell turnover, and it stimulates collagen and elastin production. Retinol is also great for people who suffer from acne.
Ascorbic acid is an antioxidant and a form of Vitamin C. Ascorbic acid is responsible for evening out skin tone, shielding the skin from pollution, and overall keeping your skin looking healthy and younger.
Cannabidiol extract (CBD) is used in all of CBD for Life's products. CBD is "the major non-psychotropic cannabinoid found in hemp." CBD has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, which can be beneficial to your overall health. CBD's anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties make it a great ingredient for those, like myself, who suffer from acne now and again, because acne is a result of both bacteria and inflammation in the skin. I will say, I have noticed since using this product that my breakouts have become far and few between.
How It Looks/Smells/Feels:
This moisturizer is decadent. It feels like Gaia herself is housed within this sleek black jar, and you have released her, as if she was a genie in a bottle, baby, and now she's here to make your skin look and feel amazing. Texture wise, this moisturizer is not too thin and it is not too thick; it's the perfect balance between the two. Thick enough that you do need to massage it into your skin a little bit, but not too thin to the point where you feel like it is just sitting on top of your skin making your face look like a grease puddle. The moisturizer has a mild citrus-dominant fragrance, which naturally occurs from the ingredients like, orange and lime peel extracts, used within the product.
Would I Purchase this Again?:
It is safe to say that I am hooked on this moisturizer. That means a lot coming from me because I am absurdly picky when it comes to my moisturizers and constantly buying new ones. I love this moisturizer because it condenses my skincare regiment and gets me out of the house as quickly as possible, and as someone who loves their beauty sleep, this is everything. The Pure CBD Face Cream does this by including hyaluronic acid, ascorbic acid, and retinol in its ingredients. That means if you woke up late, you don't have to worry about the consequences of skipping your serums because they are already packed into this moisturizer. At only $35 this product is a steal.
Head over to CBD for Life's website to purchase the Pure CBD Face Cream for yourself.
Until next time,
