Hemp has long been a popular ingredient in beauty products, but brands offering cosmetics with Cannabidiol (CBD) have now entered the market too. Many people have found that CBD oils help moisturise and rejuvenate the skin, and as a result CBD serums and face masks are fast gaining popularity.
We’ve gathered some our favorite CBD cosmetics and beauty products below. All of these come from trusted brands and all of them contain actual CBD, clearly labelled in milligrams (mg), rather than hemp seed oil (these products are generally cheaper and don’t necessarily have the benefits of CBD).
Please note: If you’re after CBD cream for pain, rather than its cosmetic benefits, check out our article that compares CBD topicals by their price per mg of CBD.
