You may be familiar with CBD edibles, oils and sprays but did you know that CBD has become a popular beauty ingredient as well? DERMA E recently launched their +CBD Relief skin care collection, which I’ve been testing out for the last few weeks. Each product in this collection contains phytocannabinoids a.k.a. CBD which is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory to soothe and calm the skin along with hemp seed oil to hydrate.
Let’s take a closer look at the DERMA E +CBD Relief collection>>
Step 1: Cleanse
First up is the DERMA E Skin De-Stress Calming CBD Cleanser… spoiler alert, I love it! I’ve been using DERMA E face cleansers for years and I actually haven’t met one I don’t like. They are gentle on the skin yet effective at cleansing. Along with CBD, it contains aloe vera, which is excellent for soothing skin. It has a barely-there scent– perhaps a blend of the chamomile extract and aloe vera.
I like that this cleanser leaves my skin feeling smooth and hydrated, not striped away. My skin is often red after I shower (I like my water hot!) and I find that this helps to keep that redness at bay. 100% recommend this cleanser!
Step 2: Treat
I recently reviewed the DERMA E Skin De-Stress Calming CBD Serum on this post, however it deserves another mention. This serum has a creamier texture and is great at moisturizing my skin. Like the cleanser it has a soft scent, skin calming benefits and leaves skin feeling hydrated. It’s packed with hemp seed oil derived omega-6 and omega-3 to keep skin looking youthful and feeling healthy.
I had mentioned in my last post that I wanted to incorporate it into my night routine, however I’ve been using this more in the morning after cleansing my face. The serum blends into skin nicely and is not greasy or tacky at all. As with the cleanser, I do notice that it helps reduce any redness in my skin.
Step 3: Moisturize
The DERMA E Skin De-Stress Calming CBD Moisturizer contains 500mg of CBD, which is a fairly high dose. The fragrance-free cream moisturizes and soothes irritated skin. DERMA E’s description states that it is especially good for acne-prone skin.
Since I absolutely love the other two products in this collection, I had high hopes for this moisturizer. Unfortunately, it just wasn’t as moisturizing as I had initially hoped. My dry skin soaked this up and was looking for more. I even paired it with the serum to give my skin extra hydration.
This CBD-infused moisturizer has some excellent ingredient benefits and antioxidants. It does not feel greasy at all when applied and absorbs quickly into skin. While I find it to be a quality moisturizer, this moisturizer would be best for normal or normal-oily skin types.
Overall, I am enjoying this collection and would consider purchasing the cleanser and serum again. The DERMA E +CBD Relief collection is available at ULTA Beauty, now buy one get one 50% off!
