Look, I get it. We’re all CBD tired. But if there’s one brand that should be exempt of our collective side-eye, it’s The body Shop. Back in 1992, they were the first mainstream brand lớn use hemp oil in their skincare products and since then, the Hemp Hand Protector has grown into a cult sản phẩm for dry hands (and It lord knows we’ve got some cracked knuckles going on due khổng lồ all that sanitising right now).

All jokes aside though, CBD will not get you high. What it will vị for your skin, you’ll find out below.

What does CBD do for your skin?

First things first. CBD stands for cannabidiol and is a chemical compound derived from the cannabis plant. A “CBD oil” is always a set of the compound with an oil such as olive, hemp or coconut.

Despite the consensus that more research needs khổng lồ be done, many studies have shown that CBD has an array of benefits to lớn the skin.

CBD Soothing Oil-Balm Cleansing Mask

This cleansing mask is described as an “indulgent gel-to milk texture” with a formula that “removes impurities without leaving feeling dry”. I expected the texture to be slightly dry, maybe even a bit gritty because of the trắng clay that’s in it. But oh boy, I was happy to be wrong.

The CBD Soothing Oil-Balm Cleansing Mask is thicc as fucc & spreads like a juicy dream. I like to apply this before I brush my hair and take my clothes off lớn hop into the shower. It only needs 5 minutes khổng lồ work into the skin and perform its magic. After rinsing, you get a a little hint of that lovely refreshed feeling only the Eve Lom cleansing balm has ever given me.

Don’t worry about your face smelling lượt thích a baggy of weed by the way. Upon application you’ll notice a delicate, floral-fresh scent but even that dissipates quickly.

In their reviews on The body toàn thân Shop’s website, user BigT14 describes the cleansing mask as “Jeff Bezos rich”. I’d say that observation is spot-on.

CBD Replenishing Moisture Cream

When The body toàn thân Shop said replenishing, they weren’t lying. The Replenishing Moisture Cream is super rich, perfect for dry skin lượt thích mine. All that hydration comes with a price though: this moisturiser doesn’t fully sink into the skin the way I’d lượt thích it to. When layered over my serum, Holika Holika’s 3 Seconds Starter Collagen, I feel greasy. On its own however, it’ll only leave a little bit of a tacky feeling – which is okay, until you have lớn put on your mask.

If you’re after maximum dewy glow, adding this over a serum or under an oil will give you exactly that. I’ll probably use this in the evening, or on days I don’t have to lớn leave the house. Those days are very frequent, haha.

As with the cleanser, the fragrance is mild and pleasant. No dank notes detected.

CBD Restoring Facial Oil

An oil in your skincare routine is a game changer, guys. Adding a few drops to your moisturiser is a great way khổng lồ adapt your skincare lớn the changing seasons. Here in Belgium, central heating is on full blast again và without the extra moisture I would turn into a raisin overnight.

The CBD Restoring Facial Oil contains oils derived from sweet almond, jojoba, hemp & soy bean. It feels lightweight and sinks into the skin quickly.

Due khổng lồ the vast difference in price, it’s almost unfair lớn compare The toàn thân Shop’s CBD Restoring Facial Oil to lớn Kiehl’s’ Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate . But considering I have both, I’ll consider it my duty.

The very first thing I did when receiving the package from The toàn thân Shop was sniff the oil. If you’ve ever had a whiff of the Kiehl’s one, you’ll understand why. Due lớn the oregano oil in the formula it makes your face smell like a pizza pie. The CBD Restoring Facial Oil is a lot less offensive và has the same gentle scent the cream has. A little green, a little citrus, a little floral. A delight.

If it’s something you’re wary of however, you’ll be disappointed lớn learn the INCI lists geraniol, citronellol, linalool, citral and the unspecified “fragrance”. Kiehl’s’ has none of those, which makes it more compatible for the most sensitive of skins. The € 46 price tag could be justified by the whopping 60% cannabis sativa seed oil content. The body Shop doesn’t specify exactly how much hempseed oil is in their formula, but considering the CBD Restoring Facial Oil is a set of various plant oils, I doubt they can compare.

In performance however, I don’t notice much of a difference & due to lớn the scent, I prefer the one by The body Shop, personally.
