CBD Beauty Products Are Trending. Here’s What You Need to Know
CBD is majorly trending. 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. From mascara to perfume, here are five CBD-infused concoctions to check out…in order to chill out.
MILK MAKEUP ’KUSH’ HIGH VOLUME MASCARA
Instead of using non-natural beeswax that’s found in most products with CBD-infused oil, Milk’s formula creates a creamy texture that allows for a super-smooth application. You might be thinking this is kind of gimmicky, but trust us—and one of our beauty editors: This stuff is good.
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.
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!”
KANA LAVENDER CBD SLEEPING MASK
This organic sleeping mask contains 28 active botanicals that work to heal, hydrate and brighten your skin overnight. Here’s what one pleased customer had to say: “My new Holy Grail sleeping mask, minimal yet very effective. I’ve seen lots of improvement in hyperpigmentation!”
XYRENA OG KUSH PERFUME
Part of perfume company Xyrena’s Reefer Madness Collection, this is a reproduction of a particular West Coast strain. Opening with notes of sour lemon and pine, it dries down to an earthy cedar fragrance with a hint of burnt rubber. The formula combines synthetic fragranceoils with natural terpenes found in cannabis.
