CBD Beauty Products are Taking Skin Care to New Heights

From body oils and serums to bath salts to recovery salves, the beauty world is going crazy for CBD. Below, an edit of the best products to seek out.

Saint Jane Luxury Beauty Serum
Saint Jane, one of the newest arrivals to the upscale CBD beauty market, is buzzing for two reasons: it’s incredibly stylish—and it works. The matte black bottle and minimalist gold label are remarkably sophisticated, and although that may be the norm on this page, it’s less often so in the cannabis industry as a whole. The formula touts 20 high-performance ingredients for the skin: cannabidiol plus 19 powerful botanicals and omega-rich oils chosen for their calming, healing, nourishing, rejuvenating, and brightening qualities.

Josie Maran Skin Dope Argan Oil + 100 mg CBD Oil
This multi-use product contains only two ingredients—argan oil and CBD—proving that there is beauty in simplicity. Josie Maran, one of the first brands to usher pure argan oil into the luxury beauty space, has long touted its high-antioxidant and fatty acid–rich composition and healing effects on the skin. Skin Dope pairs the golden oil with 100 milligrams of sun–grown CBD. The result is a lightweight and pleasantly scented oil that absorbs instantly to promote calming, balancing, and strengthening benefits and a smooth, dewy finish. $78, skindope.com

Foria Awaken Arousal Lube
The only thing better than looking like you just had great sex is having great sex. And Foria, a line of CBD products designed specifically for the needs of women and men, seems to have crafted Awaken, their natural lube, with that in mind. The spray formula, which contains whole-plant CBD extract and eight aphrodisiac herbal extracts in liquid coconut oil, increases sensation and decreases tension—while remaining tastefully inconspicuous bedside. $48, foriawellness.com

Vertly Hemp CBD Infused Bath Salts
A hot bath can be one of modern life’s easiest acts of self-care—it’s deeply relaxing and helps boost circulation and eliminate toxins. One bag of Vertly’s Hemp CBD Infused Bath Salts contains 50 milligrams of hemp cannabinoid extract (a targeted combination of cannabinoids, terpenes, and essential nutrients to help reduce tension), along with an active mix of marjoram, yarrow, and rosemary, MSM and magnesium—a combo that aids the body’s detox and recovery processes, promotes healthy muscles, and delivers a purified glow. $29, vertlybalm.com

Juna Drops: Nude
The San Francisco brand Juna is essentially the cannabis beauty version of farm-to-table. Founder Jewel Zimmer, a former fine-dining pastry chef and certified sommelier, sources and produces with the same meticulous attention to detail she would a single-origin chocolate. A few drops of this sun-grown hemp oil dropped into your coffee or cocktail can promote a level of chill that helps to keep stress-related skin ailments at bay. And although it’s not technically a topical, Jewel says she mixes a few drops into her oil cleanser before washing her face and applies it directly to irritated or blemished skin.

Lord Jones High CBD Formula Body Oil
Perhaps the most ubiquitous high-end CBD brand, Lord Jones has earned its reputation via an extensive and imaginative—not to mention celebrity-beloved—product line. The company’s latest addition, a body oil, is smartly packaged in a highly transportable glass vessel complete with a targeted roller-ball applicator. It features 100 milligrams of broad-spectrum, extra-strength CBD in a mix of five botanical oils, including nourishing avocado, jojoba, and safflower, designed to impart soothing benefits and soft skin.

Hora Overnight Exfoliating Mask + CBD
Multitasking doesn’t stop when the lights go off, which is why Hora’s Overnight Exfoliating Mask is such a welcome addition to our beauty repertoire. A thin layer of the mask—which boasts a high concentration of CBD along with vitamin A, evening primrose and salicylic acid—moisturizes, addresses inflammation, and promotes skin cell turnover. Matched with eight hours of quality sleep, it’s a recipe for renewal. $62, horaskincare.com

Mineral Maison For Recovery.

Three Recovery Salves to Covet 

The term “salve” has a homemade, got-it-at-the-farmer’s-market vibe. And while Yuyo Organics is about as local as you can get—the Tennessee-based company was founded by hemp farmers who grow their own plants and extract at a lab a mere 15-minutes away—their Tumeric Salve is a truly refined product. With 100mg of cannabinoid extract per jar, the formulation includes turmeric to quell inflammation, and cayenne, menthol, and essential oils for acute pain relief. Its smooth, creamy texture glides on easily, absorbs almost instantly, and smells divine. $35, yuyobotanics.com

A dense, fragrant balm in a dark, minimalist jar, Mineral Maison For Recovery will be right at home among your highest-end beauty products. But beyond its outwardly attractive appearance and earthy-yet-elevated sandalwood and sage-infused scent—this balm promises next-level healing. When it comes to CBD, Maison believes in the entourage effect, and the brand’s formulations utilize 12 cannabinoids that work in tandem to deliver the full medicinal benefits of each. Mineral Maison For Recovery’s unique cannabinoid to terpene blend is specifically designed to deliver inflammation-calming, muscle-relaxing, skin-soothing results. $65, mineralhealth.co

Wellnell’s cheery and colorful branding extends to the names of its product line: Happy, Chill, Dreamy, Relief, and Woof (its canine formula). Organically grown in Colorado, peppermint is infused into the range of full-spectrum ingestible oils that are packed with 112 cannabinoids and range from 250 to 1000mg. Blended with lavender and eucalyptus, Relief Body Salve has a viscosity similar to that of a luxuriously silky lip balm. The anti-inflammatory and muscle-soothing ingredients are a sure bet for aches, pains, and sore muscles, and the olfactory properties leave your skin with an enviable post-spa aroma. $80 wellnellcbd.com
