Nature of things

With the summer season coming to an end, now is the perfect time to start thinking about how to tweak your skincare routine to keep that sun-kissed glow and protect from the elements year-round.

I may be biased (and yes, I test cannabis products as part of my job), but in the past few years I’ve moved to purely CBD-based face and body care products (with the exception of Biologique Recherche Lotion P50.). and EltaMD sunscreen). Did I personally experience the result? My clearest and healthiest complexion to date.

With the latest trend report from BDSA predicting that the CBD beauty segment of the market will hit $ 720 million this year alone – a 60% increase from 2020 and only 10% of the total CBD market – the number is the new brands and product launches to consider buying – often at a high price – is overwhelming.

Whether you want to make the full switch to CBD or just want to try it one step at a time, here are the nine best cannabis beauty launches of 2021 (so far) to help narrow your search – each one has done its best in the proven challenging and drying environment of the high mountains.

* Note: This list is alphabetical, unordered, and will be updated with new product launches through December 2021.

Best used after a moisturizer and under makeup in your morning routine, Botanika Life’s newest serum is fortified with 1,000 milligrams of full-spectrum CBD extract, which helps with hydration and restores natural radiance.

Look Alive Face Moisturizer

Look Alive Face Moisturizer

For celebrity co-founder Kristen Bell, the havoc the normal stress of the day wreaked on her skin was the inspiration behind the creation of Happy Dance’s first face moisturizer. Formulated as a “first line of defense”, this whipped moisturizing cream is light on the skin but highly moisturizing. Enriched with 150 milligrams of CBD extract, it is also powered by avocado oil, bisabolol with ginger, and four types of hyaluronic acid. It’s also been ophthalmologically tested (for safe use around the eyes) and is available at a cheaper price than most CBD-based moisturizers on the market. $ 29, doahappydance.com

Chus + Chus

Bleu body wax

The founder of Khus + Khus, Kristi Blustein, is an Ayurveda specialist, aromatherapist and herbalist – an experience that characterizes her mission “modern herbal fusion”, which stands out from the crowded world of CBD beauty products. Launched earlier this year, Bleu Body Wax is a concentrated pomade that is solid at room temperature and liquefies in the hands when you warm up for smooth application. Each jar contains 225 milligrams of broad-spectrum CBD, supplemented with coconut, baobab seeds, marla and beeswax with essential oils such as tiara flower and blue yarrow to naturally scent the body. $ 77, khus-khus.com

The Rose Absolute Oil

The Rose Absolute Oil

So it’s not technically a CBD product choice, but Lab to Beauty turned to another cannabis supplement for a second skin care collection. CBG (cannabigerol) is just one of more than 120 identified cannabinoid compounds found in the plant genus. It’s known to soothe inflammation, reduce blemishes, cleanse pores, balance sebum production, and aid cell turnover. Together with Bulgarian rose extract, golden jojoba oil, moringa, immortelle and rose hip oil, this luxurious and healing formula works against aging, improves elasticity and ensures a youthful, plump appearance. Use The Rose Absolute Oil in the evening after cleansing and toning or under your favorite foundation to increase brightness. $ 145, labtobeauty.com

Lord Jones

Bump & Smooth CBD body serum

Lord Jones’ latest release is the answer to one of the most common skin problems: those mysterious mini-bumps and rough spots – often caused by spending too much time in the sun. This powerful, surface-renewing serum offers a non-abrasive chemical peeling experience that reduces bumps and shows smoother, more radiant skin thanks to 200 milligrams of full-spectrum CBD extract mixed with bisabolol, hyaluronic acid, ceramic and squalane. Whether you suffer from Keratosis Pilaris (KP) or are just looking for some refreshment for dull skin, the Lord Jones Bump & Smooth CBD Body Serum gently removes dead cells to reveal what’s underneath. $ 60, lordjones.com

Facial essence

Balancing facial essence

Nature of Things is known for its product portfolio for body care and baths and launched a skin care line with cleanser, toner, moisturizer and mask (facial stone optional) earlier this year. While the entire four-step routine is remarkable, the Balancing Facial Essence has stayed in my medicine cabinet due to its soothing, moisturizing, and dewy result of pure ingredient extracts like broad spectrum CBD, Swiss apple stem cells, Korean kombalgae, and French thermal oil. Bonus benefits include new skin cell growth, refined pores, and protection against free radicals. $ 95, natureofthings.com

Beyond the body oil

Beyond the body oil

Loaded with 600 milligrams of hemp CBD oil per generous bottle, Prima’s latest addition to its range goes way beyond your average body oil. Herbal ingredients like omegas, phenols, antioxidants and fatty acids are carefully combined with Magnesium and Helichrysum in this soothing, therapeutic formula that actually repairs and restores the skin while improving tone and texture at the same time. Pro tip: leave it in the shower to apply to inhale the aromatic blend of cloves, geranium and citrus and lock in most of the moisture just before you step out. $ 56, prima.co

Moisturizing flower cream

Moisturizing flower cream

Top-selling CBD beauty brand Saint Jane did it again with their very first face cream (previous award-winning releases in the category include The C-Drops, Bright Repair Eye Cream, and Luxury Beauty Serum). Founder Casey Georgeson spent more than a year looking for the flower best for hydrating the skin, and hibiscus, known as “Nature’s Botox,” eventually came to be for its effectiveness in tightening and restoring skin elasticity selected. The light Hydrating Petal Cream is mixed with 1% pure hyaluronic acid and is pleasant to apply, is quickly absorbed into the skin and leaves a dewy finish for the whole day. $ 68, saintjanebeauty.com
