Happy Saturday loves! Now that November has FINALLY arrived, I have been able to slow down and BREATH! PHEW! While being busy reminds me that TDD is growing and thriving, I am so excited to be slowing down and focusing on family. With slowing down, it also means I get to really focus on myself and making sure my body is in tip top shape for the Holidays! From clean eating, to clean skincare, all of it is getting a little more attention this month.
One thing I added to my skincare routine is a CBD based product from Green Compass. I started using the CBD Soothe cream, as well as weekly bath bombs infused with CBD. So far, the results have blown me away! Today on the blog I am sharing with you all how adding CBD to my skincare routine has affected my skin, for 1000% better! Dry winter skin? What’s that? 😉

What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, or CBD, a compound found in hemp plants, is a naturally healing and replenishing compound. This process of CBD helps bring the body back to balance, which ultimately will make us feel better, mentally and physically. CBD reacts with humans endocannabinoid system (ECS). Which is a receptor system found throughout the body and is involved in regulating many of our critical biological processes. This systems has a direct effect on sleep, memory, mood, metabolism, inflammation, and many other vital aspects of our health. That’s why, many people take CBD for anxiety, skin ailments, and to promote mental clarity.
There are two different cannabinoid receptors that our bodies have, CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are located in the central nervous system, which has the brain, nerve cells, lungs, heart, spinal cord and reproductive organs. CB1 receptors help to regulate mood, pain, sleep, and motor skills. These receptors are found primarily throughout the lymphatic systems, and help regulate inflammation, digestion, heart and stomach function. CBD is an extract of Hemp, which has lower levels of THC, unlike Marijuana which has high doses of THC. CBD can also be extracted from Coneflower (Echinacea, Electric Daisy (Acmella oleracea), Japanese Liverwort (Radula marginata), Helichrysum (Helium italicum), and Cacao (Theobroma cacao)!
The Effects of CBD on My Skin.
Now, I know many people are still getting used to the idea of CBD, and many people still see it as too “woo woo” for them. Y’all I totally get it! With so many choices and brands out there, how do you know what to pick?! For me, I want to know the science behind how the products were manufactured. If you’ve read my LivOn Labs post, you know I GEEK OUT to science! So something that is backed by scientific facts , AND can improve the look and feel of my skin?! Sign me up!
I started off using the soothe cream on my face for 10 days, morning and night, to see the affects on my skin. For me, blemishes and acne are always an issue. You can see on my cheeks where some of my problem areas are for instance. Going into this trial period, I wanted to see how my skin would change and react to me using a moisturizer instead of my oil in my routine firstly. Then secondly, I wanted to see if it actually improved the appearance of my acne scars or my redness around my T-zone. The Soothe Cream has a thick shiny consistency, with no unpleasant or harsh smell. When I applied it to my face and neck, I did need to spend roughly 1-2 minutes massaging it into my skin. For many people, this might be a nighttime only cream to soothe irritated skin. Or for many people this could be a body cream after excessive workouts on sore joints!
The results blew me away!
As you can see, my skin started clearing up and the redness was disappearing slowly but surely. After just 10 days of consistent use! My skin is also softer, feels more supple, and has even helped keep my lips from getting chapped! Think about it, CBD has changed my skin in just 10 days. So what do you think will happen after 30 days, 6 months, or even years! Honestly, this is the magic in a bottle I think my grandma always talked about! 😉
And there’s a bath bomb!
With three options to choose from, you’re bath time just got a whole lot better! If regular CBD use on my face produced these results, think about on your whole body! Since adding the CBD bath bombs to my weekly routine, my skin has felt more nourished all over. One instance I have definitely seen results has been after I shave my legs. I don’t know why, but everytime I shave I ALWAYS without fail get really bad razor burn. I have tried shave cream, oils, lotions, changing razors, you name it! Nothing makes the painful razor burns and bumps go away. Well, guess what. After I shave, I started soaking in the CBD bath bombs, and guess what was GONE the next day?! That’s right, razor bumps who?! All that’s left is soft skin and bare legs! Truly, this product has changed my whole skincare routine.
CBD is still a new product to the market, and many companies aren’t regulated or tested as thoroughly as they should be. That’s why going forward, I will only trust Green Compass! The time they take from start to finish making sure their product is 100% top notch gives me confidence. It makes me feel like the products I am putting on my skin are safe and will actually show the results I am looking for! Since adding the soothe cream to y routine, the results have really wowed me and those in my inner circle. I have even got makeup free a few days because I am THAT confident in my skin thanks to the cream! With the addition to the bath bombs in my routine, my irritating razor burn has seemingly disappeared, and I hope stays that way!
So if you’re looking to ad a CBD product to your routine, think of adding Green Compass’s products. They care about what goes into your body, so you can live the healthiest life possible.
