I have always remained skeptical of new products, especially for beauty. I’m not a person you can easily convince to buy a certain night cream or lotion or even a face cleanser for that matter.
So when I first heard of CBD creams, my reaction was the same. But I needed to have a taste of this miracle cure that everyone had been talking about. I have used CBD creams for two months, and the results were far beyond than excellent. Here is my story.
Last year September, a friend of mine went to The Netherlands where recreational marijuana was legal. When she came back, she had nothing but incredible stories about her new obsession – CBD creams. She bragged of how she’s been applying them only two weeks and yet they had already helped her with her acne. Well, at first, I thought, the glow was more to do with a stress-free holiday rather than a skin care product.
It wasn’t hard for my mate to convince me to look for a serum of my own. So the following week, I began my search. I later came to realise that there are countless of products made of CBD. The more I searched, the more it hit me – I could replace not just my cream, but all of my beauty products with hemp-based alternatives.
Now for those who are new to this wonderful supplement, you probably are wondering what CBD is all about.
CBD stands for Cannabidiol, which is the non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis sativa (hemp) plant. It has been infiltrating the beauty and wellness market widely since it contains anti-inflammatory properties. Even Kim Kardashian has been using it recently.
Since most skin disorders result from inflammations, then this herb is the right sword to have with you for battling acne, eczema, dryness, and itchiness as well.
Before I made CBD part of my skin care routine, I checked with my dermatologist to hear her opinion. Thankfully, she thought that the ingredient was safe and effective for skin care. But what I wanted to hear most was whether the creams could improve the overall quality my skin. I later came to learn that CBD is well tolerated by all skin types, and my job was just to look for it in products that were suitable for my skin type.
Armed with that information, I started my search for the best brand in the UK. I came across many companies claiming to be selling high-quality CBD, but as trust is an issue nowadays (especially when you’re buying online) I had to check the sellers that had the best reviews and with high ratings.
I’d like to give a little shout out to a website called CBD Oil Sale. Having previously known close to nothing about this supplement, I contacted them for some advice and they were brilliant in helping me choose the products I use to this day.
I’ve been using Endoca’s skincare products which I must say have been brilliant. I had to try it on a part of my hand for a week or so to see the results first. When I concluded that it didn’t produce any adverse reactions, my confidence in their products was boosted significantly.
Considering that I have a really sensitive skin, and I was still able to use CBD lotions without getting any adverse effects, I can confidently say that CBD really does work. I recommend it to anyone who has skin conditions or those who want to add some glow and shine to their skin.
