The 17 Best CBD Skin-Care Products to Try Right Now

Countless lotions, creams, and salves infused with CBD have launched this year. Here’s a list of our faves, plus the lowdown on why this super-popular ingredient may be your new favorite skin-soother for winter.

Unless you’ve been tuned out to the beauty world these last few months, odds are you’ve heard of an ingredient called CBD (short for cannabidiol). The buzzy ingredient, which, no, won’t get you high, even if ingested as an oral tincture or supplement, has now evolved into a bonafide skin-care trend, with brands offering a luxe spin on what used to be a highly niche category. “With an impressive and evergrowing number of studies finding CBD to be a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory among many other properties, it is now being used to treat pain, anxiety, spasms, and much more,” New York City-based aesthetician Jeannel Astarita tells Allure.

However, when compared to skin-care pillar ingredients like retinols and vitamin C, the research behind CBD’s efficacy in skin care (especially beyond the realms of being a temporary topical pain reliever) is still relatively in its infancy. “There is limited data to suggest that CBD may decrease oil production when applied topically,” says Joshua Zeichner, director of cosmetic and clinical research at Mount Sinai Hospital, who explains that unlike marijuana, which contains psychoactive THC, hemp seed oil is a common source of naturally anti-inflammatory cannabinoids — which is what ends up in all of those lotions and potions. “Hemp seed oil also acts as an emollient to smooth rough cells on the skin’s surface and offers moisturizing benefits,” he adds.

In this episode, we’re setting the record straight on one of the most polarizing ingredients out there. Learn what to search for when buying a CBD-infused product. (Runtime: 5 minutes)

As the summer season winds down, now is the perfect time to start thinking about how to streamline your skincare routine to keep that sun-kissed glow and stay protected from the elements all year long.

I might be biased (and, yes, I test cannabis products as part of my job) but over the past few years, I’ve transitioned to an all-CBD-based face and body regimen (with the exception of Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 and EltaMD sunscreen). The result? My clearest and healthiest complexion to date.

With BDSA’s recent trend report forecasting the CBD beauty segment of the market to reach $720 million this year alone — a 60% increase over 2020 and representing just 10% of the total CBD market — the number of new brands and product launches to consider buying — often at a high price tag — is overwhelming.

Whether you are looking to make a complete switch to CBD or want to try just one step at a time, here are the nine best cannabis beauty launches of 2021 (so far) to help narrow your search — each tried-and-tested in the challenging and drying environment of the high alpine.

*Note: This list is in alphabetical order, not ranked and will continue to get updated with new product launches through December 2021.

Vitamin C + Squalane + CBD Skin Elixir

Botanika Life

Vitamin C + Squalane + CBD Skin Elixir

This antioxidant-rich formula combines three superstar ingredients — vitamin C, squalane and CBD — to create a natural skin brightener, which targets dark spots and reduces signs of aging. Best used after moisturizer and under makeup in your morning routine, Botanika Life’s newest serum is infused with 1,000 milligrams of full-spectrum CBD extract, which helps with hydration and restore natural radiance. And don’t forget to layer with sunscreen after you apply to improve sun protection. $95, botanikalife.com

Look Alive Face Moisturizer

Happy Dance

Look Alive Face Moisturizer

For celebrity co-founder Kristen Bell, the havoc wreaked on her skin from the normal stresses of the day was the inspiration in creating Happy Dance’s debut face moisturizer. Formulated as a “first line of defense” barrier, this whipped, hydrating creme is light on skin, but heavy on hydration. Infused with 150 milligrams of CBD extract, it’s also powered by avocado oil, bisabolol with a ginger blend and four types of hyaluronic acid. Plus, it’s been ophthalmologist-tested (for safe use around the eyes) and available at a more accessible price point than most CBD-based moisturizers on the market. $29, doahappydance.com

Khus + Khus

Bleu Body Wax

Khus + Khus founder Kristi Blustein is an Ayurvedic specialist, aromatherapist and herbalist — experience that makes her “modern herbal fusion” mission stand apart among the crowded CBD beauty product space. Released earlier this year, the Bleu Body Wax is a concentrated pomade that’s solid at room temperature and when warmed up in your hands, liquifies for smooth application. Each jar is packed with 225 milligrams of broad-spectrum CBD complemented by coconut, baobab seed, Marla and beeswax with essential oils like tiara flower and blue yarrow to perfume the body naturally. $77, khus-khus.com

The Rose Absolute Oil

Lab to Beauty

The Rose Absolute Oil

So it’s not technically a CBD product pick, but Lab to Beauty turned to another cannabis compound for a second skincare collection. CBG (cannabigerol) is just one of more than 120 identified cannabinoid compounds found in the plant genus. It is known to calm inflammation, reduce blemishes, purify pores, balance sebum production and assist with cellular turnover. Concocted with Bulgarian rose extract, golden jojoba oil, moringa, immortelle and rosehip oil, this luxurious and healing formula works to fight aging, improve elasticity and deliver a youthful plump. Use The Rose Absolute Oil nightly after cleansing and toning or under your favorite foundation to boost brightness. $145, labtobeauty.com

Bump & Smooth CBD Body Serum

Lord Jones

Bump & Smooth CBD Body Serum

Lord Jones’ recent release is the answer to one of the most common skin issues: those mysterious mini-bumps and rough patches — often inflicted by too much time in the sun. This potent resurfacing serum delivers a non-abrasive chemical exfoliation experience that reduces bumpiness and reveals smoother, brighter-looking skin thanks to 200 milligrams of full-spectrum CBD extract blended with bisabolol, hyaluronic acid, ceramides and squalane. Whether you suffer from Keratosis Pilaris (KP) or are just looking for a refresh to dull skin, Lord Jones Bump & Smooth CBD Body Serum gently removes dead cells to reveal what’s underneath. $60, lordjones.com

Nature of Things

Balancing Facial Essence

Beloved for its body care and bath immersion portfolio of products, Nature of Things introduced a skincare line earlier this year featuring a cleanser, toner, moisturizer and mask (face stone optional). While the entire four-step routine is remarkable, the Balancing Facial Essence has remained in my medicine cabinet because of its soothing, hydrating and dewy result from pure ingredient extracts like broad-spectrum CBD, Swiss apple stem cells, Korean kombu algae and French thermal water. Bonus benefits include new skin cell growth, refined pores and free radical protection. $95, natureofthings.com

Beyond Body Oil

Prima

Beyond Body Oil

Supercharged with 600 milligrams of hemp CBD oil per generous-sized bottle, Prima’s latest addition to its lineup goes way beyond your average body oil. Plant actives including omegas, phenols, antioxidants and fatty acids are meticulously combined with magnesium and helichrysum in this soothing, therapeutic formula, which actually repairs and restores the skin while also improving tone and texture. Pro-tip: Keep it in your shower for application to breathe in the aromatic blend of clove, geranium and citrus and lock in most moisture just before getting out. $56, prima.co

Hydrating Petal Cream

Saint Jane

Hydrating Petal Cream

Best-selling CBD beauty brand Saint Jane has done it again with its first-ever 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 searching for the flower that’s best for skin hydration and hibiscus, known as “nature’s Botox,” was ultimately selected for its efficacy in firming and restoring elasticity to the skin. Blended with 1% pure hyaluronic acid, the lightweight Hydrating Petal Cream is a joy to apply, absorbing quickly into the skin and leaving the face with a dewy finish that lasts all day. $68, saintjanebeauty.com
