In my quest to bring you all more knowledge about clean beauty & skincare products, Gentle Jane reached out regarding their new CBD products.
A little backstory about Gentle Jane first. This small business makes an edited assortment of CBD infused products that are highly effective. All their products are made in small batches & are free from parabens, fragrance, alcohol and sulfates.
If you are not familiar with CBD skincare (different from the oral tincture), it is used topically to reduce skin inflammation & irritation. There have been studies showing that it can help with skin issues such a psoriasis & eczema. The CBD helps calm the itch factor but also relieves any pain or discomfort in the skin. Muscle tension is also relieved when applying CBD topically. To learn more about CBD skincare- read here.
I was gifted the Superfoods & CBD Soothing Stick as well as the Glow Oil. The Soothing Stick is made with the following oils: marula, chia seed, avocado, grapeseed & cucumber (plus other essential oils). You can use this as either a hydrating face stick (which is what I was doing at first) or as a pain reliever.
The first time I used the Soothing Stick as a pain reliever- I was SO impressed.
I have tension & tightness in my hips as well as my neck and shoulders. A few swipes of this stick to my inflamed areas & I was instantly relieved!!! I cannot recommend this product enough if you have some aches & pains. I roll this on at night to sleep better or throughout the day when sitting at my desk and feel some tension in my back. It works!
The Superfoods & CBD Glow Oil is also awesome. I use this at night on the days I need extra hydration. This oil is great for reducing redness, firming skin & brightening dull skin. I can definitely see more of a “glow” on my skin the next morning after I have used this. This oil contains jojoba oil which is AMAZING for your skin. I would definitely recommend this if you suffer from dry skin. I also use it when doing my Gua Sha facial exercises.
Both products are on the pricier side, however good quality CBD is pricey.
