CBD For Life| A Cruelty Free Skincare Review

Hey there! Hope you're doing well this morning (or whenever you happen to be reading this)! I slacked off on my blogging duties again this week thanks to midterms, but I do have a new YouTube video up as well if you would like to check that out. 

As you guys know I have struggled with acne since the dawn of time... ok maybe since I was about 13, but it feels like forever. I finally had a skincare routine that worked for me, and then all the sudden I was breaking out more than ever. I still am dairy free (or very close, accidents happen), but I think the stress of interviews and midterms has taken their toll and my skin has had it! Or at least I've had it with my skin looking this way. 

A few weeks ago I was sent something slightly controversial, but I definitely believe in the power of all natural products so I figured I would give it a go and I am so happy I did. CBD for Life is a skincare range that contains cannabidiol, which helps stop the growth of bacteria, and is anti-inflammatory; which is awesome news for my face which has a bit of rosacea and acne. If you're hesitant about using a hemp based product or are not sure if it's right for you I would definitely give this page a read. 


According to their website; 

CBD is the major non-psychotropic cannabinoid found in Hemp. It is the principal cannabinoid present in fiber-type Hemp (in the form of its carboxylic acid CBDA), a plant that is easily available to researchers, in contrast to the strictly controlled drug-type Hemp varieties. Second to THC, the pharmacological effects of CBD have been best studied of all cannabinoids. It has notable anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory effects. Furthermore, sedating, hypnotic, anti-epileptic, and antidystonic effects have been described. Also, CBD is a modulator of some types of opioid-receptors, and can modulate sleep. The German Extract Method results in a high CBD product that tests lower than .3% THC.

Within one night I saw a difference in amount of redness present on my face, and within a week I saw a reduction of sebum/black heads and emerging spots. For the first week and a half I used only CBD products to make sure I was seeing a difference in my skin, however since I also really loved the serum I reviewed last week I have been using that at night after cleansing and I really love how all three products are working together. You guys know how much I love rich moisturizers as well, and I have been loving this CBD face cream, it's thick and nourishing without suffocating your skin. My face feels so soft and hydrated.

I would recommend trying this product for any issue that may be affecting your skin. Thanks CBD for Life for sending me these products to try out! I look forward to seeing my skin heal even more, at this point I realize nothing is going to miraculously cure my skin, stress and other factors are still going to cause breakouts but this skincare range has definitely made a positive difference and I am so happy with what I have been seeing, I can have my makeup free days again. πŸ’šπŸŒΏπŸ›
