Today, we’re talking about an easy way to jazz up your most-used products with a little power-ingredient: CBD.
Yes, yes, we are all familiar with the idea of ingesting CBD for it’s calming benefits ( CBD oil, CBD drinks, etc ), but my favorite way to use CBD is in my skincare or wellness products. Applying CBD topically is known to calm the skin while keeping it hydrated. My sensitive skin ADORES the CBD experience.
I’m partnering with American Eagle today for the launch of MOOD, a line of CBD-infused essentials sold exclusively at AE.
MOOD offers products like body cream, face wash, face oil, lip balm, & more, all infused with 100% hemp-derived CBD. The products come in a number of different scents, for different uses. I chose a few things from the ‘chill’ ( cool coconut scented ) and the ‘refreshed’ ( warm vanilla scented ) lines.
PS, before I get to the bulk of this post, YES, this sweater is also from AE and on SALE. You can shop it here.
I’ll link a number of products for y’all to check out below, but I’m going to feature a few of my TOP favorites from this line here, so buckle up for some seriously effective finds:
Chill Warm Vanilla CBD-Infused Body Cream: because I’m prone to redness & dryness, this particular product is my absolute favorite. The CBD in the body cream calms my skin, while the product goes to work hydrating my dry skin. I usually put this on right after the shower, while my skin is still damp.
Chill CBD-Infused Aromatherapy Oil: I carry this little guy around in my purse when I want to have a calming moment to myself while out & about. Like I said, this scent is so cozy, it reminds me of winter ( which is a long-lost idea at this point, LA is currently sunny as always ). I apply the oil to pressure points like the inside of my wrists or on my neck.
Refreshed CBD-Infused Facial Oil: is KEY for me. I use a very small amount of this light oil on my skin at night OR while I’m using my jade roller/gua sha in the morning ( for facial massage ). I noticed it tones down any redness I’m experiencing while not causing breakouts.
You could say I’ve jumped on the CBD train in a big way, using it more often topically in creams & oils than actually ingesting it.
I like the MOOD products because they’re 1) cute, 2) smell VERY good, & 3) diverse in terms of the TYPES of products available ( there’s something for everyone! ). All the products are also 100% hemp-derived.
This kind of thing is also perfect for gifting around this time of year! I have my eye on a few products to add to gift bags & such for my friends. CUTE, I know.
Talk soon, beebs. xx
