These CBD skincare products are quickly becoming cult-classics
Zits, redness, discomfort, they’re common skin problems many of us know all too well. Oily, blemish-prone skin has a knack for complicating everything from your morning beauty routine to the aggressive use of photo editing software. And while including CBD skincare products in your self-care routine isn’t a brand new idea to the acne-prone community, the normalization of cannabis has opened the doors for CBD-enthused beauty companies to pump out some truly revolutionary products.
Among the most sought-after CBD skincare is a handful of serums, oils, and masks that are lauded for their restorative benefits.
We scoured the internet for the best of the best cannabis-based skincare products and this is what we found.
Kiehl's: Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate
According to hundreds of five-star Internet reviews, the $50 face oil delivers on its restorative promises. Formulated for problem skin, the face oil, which is made up of hemp-derived Cannabis Sativa seed oil and green oregano oil, provides skin instant relief from visible redness and discomfort.
It’s lightweight, non-comedogenic (it won’t block your pores), and is formulated for blemish-prone skin. Reviewers praise the concentrate’s calming effects and swear their blemishes have all but disappeared. Cannabis Sativa seed oil is derived from hemp seed oil and has been shown to reduce redness and improve the skin’s barrier. The other wonder ingredient, green oregano oil, is loaded with antioxidants and is known for its purifying benefits.

Milk Makeup: CBD + Arnica Solid Body Oil
Housed in Milk Makeup’s classic roll-on, the quick-absorb body oil is made with 100 mg of Tennessee-grown CBD. Jojoba oil, olive oil, and vitamin E provide additional hydration and antioxidant benefits while sage and lemongrass oil give the roll-on an uplifting scent.
What people say: While reviewers generally aren’t psyched by its less-than generous sizing (0.94 OZ / 26.7 G), they do praise the CBD + arnica oil for relieving dry, cracked skin, including eczema-prone skin, and for alleviating rashes, arthritis pain, and sore muscles.
